Brady Hicks was saddened to hear that Sid Eudy would not be following through with his commitments to be part of this week’s edition of IN THE ROOM as he had promised last week. His reasoning … well, you’re going to have to tune into the show this week to find out. Let’s just say Sid will not be coming to Brady’s Memorial Day Weekend barbecue with Awesome Kong! In the meantime, be sure to check out some classic clips of Sid at his finest!
Many times we sit at a local wrestling show at a high school or a fire hall and say to ourselves, “Wow, that guy’s pretty good”. I’m guilty of this myself sometimes. However, with the exception of finding work at one or two other indy promotions, most of those
The Flyin' Hawaiian
that “wow” us keep wrestling where they are. Occasionally though, we see someone that creates so much buzz that they can’t be ignored.
Kekoa the Flyin’ Hawaiian debuted in ECWA on March 5th, 2011. He was actually a replacement for Mr. Scotty Wright, who was injured and unable to wrestle Chris Wylde for the ECWA Mid-Atlantic title. While he was unsuccessful in his attempt, Kekoa certianly made an impression that night. So much so that ECWA officials along with PWI contributor Brady Hicks, who was in attendance, contacted PWI and asked them to take a look at the Flyin’ Hawaiian.
I happy to say the result is an introduction article to appear in this month’s issue of PWI, which should be on shelves by May 24th. This announcement was just days after Kekoa and CZW’s Johnathan Gresham “stole the show” according to many at the May 7th ECWA show. If you get a chance to see Kekoa, take it. For our sake, I hope he’s around here for a long time. But the sky’s the limit for this high flyer.
Congratulations Kekoa – may this be the launch your career was looking for!
You never forget your first time. For me, my first time as a wrestling manager came with the thwack of a steel folding chair to the back of my leg, a blow that shot pain down the length of my leg but caused me no real damage. At the time, nobody could have convinced me that the chair-shot was innocent enough and was such a mild sting compared to what professional wrestlers go through every time they step in the ring. I guess that’s why I’m not cut out to be a wrestler. In any event, I didn’t have any time to think about it anyway, as my charge – and VH1 reality star – Matt Riviera tripped over my hunched-over frame and was pinned by legendary tag team Demolition.
My first time was with former WWE Diva Stacy “The Kat” Carter … the person on the other side of that steel folding chair.
This week IN THE ROOM, Brady Hicks, DJ, and Kevin McElvaney talk Christian-Orton, Shane Helms, WWE Raw, and TNA’s upcoming pay-per-view. All that, plus Brady’s experiences at Legends of the Ring in Monroe, New Jersey, hanging out with Stacy “The Kat” Carter on the long drive to Newark, Delaware, and a special preview of next week’s special guest, a FORMER WWF AND WCW CHAMPION!!! Thanks for the support!
