OK folks, it's time for your midweek fix, PWR SLAM! is back! Tonight we talk to a bear, a thief and an author, two of which are the same person.
First up will be our friend Herb Simmons from SICW in the Southern Illinois/St.Louis area. They will have two events this weekend, one in Illinois, one in Missouri. As always, SICW will present a loaded card of action with possibly some more surprises. We'll try and pull what they may be out of Herb. Since he's been in Vegas at Cauliflower Alley maybe we can order him a few drinks and get him to talk.
After that, we will talk to a man that we have had on before, but he's still a lot of fun to talk to. Barrington Hughes, the big man from Florida is calling himself "MILFs Favorite Wrestler". We'll catch up with what he's been up to, including wrestling and the ladies.
When people heard "Yo yo yo, yo,pop a 40 and check your Rollies" everyone knew what time it was, CRIME TIME! The tag team that claimed Brooklyn as home had a lot of fans, especially when they would come out into the arena with the contents of some poor unsuspecting wrestler's bag, selling everything to the fans.They actually were also rather successful, spending a total of four years under the WWE banner. Tonight, we talk to one half of that team, JTG. We will discuss his early years, his influences in the business, OVW, RAW, and his book, DAMN! Why Did I Write This Book?. This should be a lot of fun.
Have a question? We always like to let our listeners talk to the wrestlers, within reason. You can post your questions in our chat, call via Skype or by phone at (347) 850-8033. Katie, Steve and Sean are ready for tonight, do YOU have your valuables locked up?
From his days training with the legendary Johnny Rodz to being The Laughing Man to taking a joke gimmick and turning it into something credible to helping develop the system responsible for many of the talents being seen on WWE TV, Bill DeMott has seen it all, Bill DeMott has done it all. Tonight, we get the privilege of speaking to Bill DeMott.
Bill has been through everything the business has to offer. He worked for a short lived Chicago/Minneapolis based promotion called the American Wrestling Federation (AWF), the Japanese W*I*N*G promotion and early ECW. From there he went to WCW and was with The Misfits, The First Family and The Filthy Animals.
Eventually he wound up in WWE which is where his active in ring career ended. From there, he became a rainer with WWE and was part of the three developmental systems they had plus an on camera roll as a judge on "Tough Enough"
We invite your questions concerning Bill's career and his advice on breaking in and what it would take to get noticed. We do need to stress that Bill is a Christian so please keep your language clean. You may pose your question in our chat for Katie to read or by using the Skype button or by phone at (347) 850-8033. Make sure you have your notebooks handy, Katie, Steve and Sean will be taking notes, you should too.
Tonight PWR SLAM! interviews an up and coming second generation star currently working the Midwest independent scene which is a long way from home and a big guy on the West Coast who is making quite an impact himself.
Cody Jones grew up in Texas, the son of Southern wrestling star Tom Jones. His Dad was a trailblazer, opening up the doors for many other Black wrestlers.Cody has chosen to follow in his Dad's footsteps and has worked in many areas of the country. We'll discuss growing up as the son of a trailblazer and how he is trying to keep the legacy of his Dad alive.
Over on the West Coast, Jeff Cobb, also known as Mr. Athletic, is a monster. This youngster has been tearing up the West Coast wrestling scene in his short time in the business. He has made such an impression that he is on one of the top wrestling TV shows. Due to confidentiality we can not use the ring name he uses but you have seen him. We will ask certain questions that will not compromise that confidentiality but will still allow you to get behind the scenes of that program.
We will also be joined by Brian Blade from Midwestern Wrestling Alliance who will be running two cards this week in Illinois. We look forward to speaking to him as well tonight.
Again due to confidentiality agreements we will be screening all questions for Jeff but we do invite you to post your questions in our chat or by calling us either via Skype or by phone at (347) 850-8033. We hope you will enjoy tonight's show.
Anyone who had listened to this show long enough know that I am a lover of romance. I used to read a lot of secular romances and now I have gravitated toward edgy Christian romance. It's not a surprise that romance is one of the biggest, if not the biggest genres to sell year after year. With that in mind, I wanted to take the time to talk about the Romance Slam Jam that is coming to Detroit from April 28-April 30th
The Romance Slam Jam is an opportunity for African American romance authors of various genres to meet and greet new and old fans, participate in workshops, and celebrate the stories that describe and display Black and multicultural romance stories.
With me to talk about the Romance Slam Jam is coordinator Elaine Overton as she gives more detail about what the RSJ is, it's history, past events and more. You can listen in at 646-668-8485, press 1 to be live on air. Or, you can download the Stitcher app on your mobile device. Or, click on the link here: http://tobtr.com/8347327
Tonight's show will be "All Good" and if you say the right things, maybe we'll "make you famous".
We will begin with our Promotion Spotlinght which tonight will be East Coast Pro Wrestling. They have some interesting events coming up and we are looking forward to having them for their first appearance with us.
Our first guest tonight is a young (22) up and coming star who is being seen by a national audience thanks to our friends at Paragon Pro Wrestling. He was originally trained for the business by Spike Dudley. He started out as a referee (there you go Steve) and turned into an active wrestler four years ago. In addition to Paragon, where he has been not only a singles wrestler but has also teamed with our friend The Gentleman Brawler Eric Right, whom Anthony has renamed R-Dizzle (we may have to get Eric on to speak on this) he has also appeared for Tommy Dreamer's House Of Hardcore, Chaotic Pro Wrestling, New England Wrestling and many others.
Brian Winbush came to our attention not just for his being part of Lucha Underground, but because he trained at the famous Santino Brothers Wrestling School. He maybe has some Joey Munoz stories he can tell us. In addition to Lucha Underground he has been involved in Pro Wrestling Guerilla, Lucha VaVoom, NWA Championship Wrestling From Hollywood, Freakshow Wrestling and many more. He has also won several titles throughout his career. He also has a connection to Jim Cornette so we'll have to see if he has any stories about him.
Steve, Katie and Sean will be ready for your questions via chat, Skype or phone at 347-850-8033. We hope you will enjoy our show.

Not only is it 4/20 (did you leave cookies and buds for Santa Snoop last night) but it’s also our monthly Ladies Night. We have some great guests lined up for you tonight.
We start out with our spotlight, which will be a mixed bag. Covey Pro Wrestling out of Berkeley Springs, WV, are having a two-night blowout before they close their doors forever. All Or Nothing 10 will be this Friday and Saturday. We’ll talk about the show and why the promotion is shutting its doors.
Next, it’s the ladies, and we have a couple of winners. Hixson, Tn. is where Sheena Lane was born. As a youngster she was planning on becoming a drag racer. One night in Georgia changed that. As Rock-n-Roll Rock-C she is tearing up Tennessee and the South.
If Kyoko Nakamura, also known as Fallen Flower Kyoko reminds you of someone don’t be surprised. This native Californian bears a strong resemblance to Japanese Superstar Bull Nakano. She’s also just as tough as Nakano and has been across the ring from some of our past guests.
We welcome your questions via chat, Skype or at (347) 850-8033. Join Sean, Steve and Katie tonight.
