Here are some pictures of a Cuban Tree Frog in Tampa. I took them a bit ago and I thought I would share.
Here are some pictures of a Cuban Tree Frog in Tampa. I took them a bit ago and I thought I would share.
Afro-Squad’s Classy Lady
Amateur Web Goddess, Oasis
Oasis, how are you doing tonight?
Today’s the day after Christmas and we had a full day yesterday. I’m recovering :) Sitting on the couch with the laptop, answering some email and watching my Patriots on Monday Night Football.
So where do you live now-a-days?
We’re in Lake Havasu City, Arizona. We spend most of our time here, with trips once a month or so out to Las Vegas, Phoenix or Southern California. We usually also take a couple big trips a year – in the winter to New Orleans for Mardi Gras, and in the summer we try to alternate and
visit new places. This summer we’re going to try to do a big trip up the east coast from Miami to Boston.
Can you describe and average work day to us? When do you get up, what do you do in your spare time, how do you prepare for work?
I think my average day is actually pretty mundane. I don’t have a regular job, which is pretty nice, so my schedule is pretty flexible but I do try to stick to a regular schedule just to make sure I get some work done. I usually get up about 8:00 and take my dog for a three mile walk. Then, as I eat breakfast I go through the email that’d come through overnight. I’ll usually spend about an hour answering the most pressing emails. Depending on the day, I’ll edit pictures for an update to my main website, cum2oasis.com, or for one of our other sites (we also run a strickly party site, realorgyparties, a stricktly interracial site, oasiswentblack, and a couple sites for friends of ours like kinkykacey.com). I try to get an update on one of our sites every day, and my main site at least three times a week.
Do you follow the news at all? If so, what do you think about our troops overseas?
I go through phases. Right now, I’m off the news (I decided I was spending way too much time reading cnn.com in the mornings). I most definitely support our troops – I have a couple good friends in Iraq right now and my brother was in the military for a good number of years (he was over for the
first war). I don’t particularly support the war, and I don’t care much for Bush…
Is there anything you would like to say to those troops?
Just to be careful and come back safe. Hopefully sooner rather than later.
We recently e-mailed Jenna Jameson and she told us she was working a business deal with Mike Tyson. What would you think about doing a scene with Iron Mike?
No thanks. He’s not my type. (well, from what I know about him anyway). I actually prefer your average guy to your body-builder or celebrity. Give me a cute computer geek any day :)
We also do a lot of interviews with professional wrestlers. Have you ever been a wrestling fan?
No. professional wrestling is too much of a soap opera for me :)
What has been your favorite video to film?
Our videos aren’t really “professional” … so its not really like filming. we’re out having a good time, and we just happen to have a video camera running. There are very few of our scenes that are scripted at all… and I have to say that the ones that are scripted are my least favorite. Lucky for me that we’re so spontaneous!!
What has been your favorite party?
Again, its very hard to pick just one!! We did a party in New Orleans a few years ago at one of my favorite bars and had about 150 people there, including 30 or so other webgirls. That was a blast…
Who have been your favorite people to work with?
I don’t really work with professional pOrn stars. Probably as close as I could get would be a couple scenes I did with Rodney Moore. I really dig him because he shoots gonzo and is a lot of fun. I’ve shot a whole lot with cathy from cathyscraving.com… not only is she a lot of fun to work with, but she’s also one of my favorite people on the planet.
Is there anyone you don’t like working with?
The great thing about what I do is that I don’t shoot with anyone I don’t like :) I only do what i want to do and when i want to do it. Because I’m not shooting, I’m having fun. If i meet up with someone with the intention of shooting with him/her, and then don’t like them, then I don’t shoot.
I’ve read a lot of reviews and fan blogs, and it seems that you have a huge following. Is there anything you would like to say to your fans?
Come on out and party sometime!!
Do some people get jealous of your success? What do your neighbors think of your career?
My neighbors gave me a little bit of crap after our last big party because too many people were parked in our cul-de-sac, but other than that we haven’t had any problems here in Havasu. Pretty much everyone in town knows who we are and what we do. But no one really cares, which is one of the reasons we’ve lived here for the last five years. we still have a “wild west” attitude where people tend to stay out of other people’s business.
What do you think of Afro-Squad.com?
Oh, I LOVE it :)
Have you checked out our Pimp of the Year pictures?
Who do you think should be Afro-Squad’s 2007 Pimp of the Year?
Snoop for sure! I need to get my dog to grow his hair like that :)
Can you tell us about the “win a date” with Oasis contest?
Its a chance for regular guys out there, my fans (haha), to shoot with me if they’re interested. they need to read my rules and fill out my stud application (at http://cum2oasis.com/stud.htm), and then if I like what they have to say, and their pic, and they can come to where I’m at, they get the chance to come out and have dinner, and most likely even more!
So where do you see yourself in 10 years? Will you be entertaining male fans in front of the screen when you hit 30?
Oh, I’ve already hit 30. working on the big 3-5 now! who knows what I’ll be doing in 10 years. If we’re still having fun with the site, then we’ll still be doing the site. What we do is all about having a good time.
We get to see a lot of the “dirty” Oasis, but can you tell us a little bit about your sweeter side? Do you cry at sad movies, volunteer, or give money to charity?
We did a benefit here in town to raise money for all the pets displaced by hurricane Katrina. We raised $1,500 for the best friends animal society and their rescue efforts. not a whole lot of money, but it was our first time doing something like that and we’ve already committed to make it an annual event to raise money for animal shelters and rescue programs…
Are you a different person when you back home with the family, or are you always the same person we see on the DVDs?
I’ll tell you a story. About six years ago I was driving my sister home from Christmas dinner at my grandmother’s. i don’t know exactly what we were talking about, but I told her about our lifestyle and the website. I expected her to be shocked … but all she said was “oh, I’m not surprised”. I don’t talk sex or parties or p0rn with my family, but my personality doesn’t change.
Before I let you go, do you have any questions for the guys at Afro-Squad?
How do I get to be a Afro-Squad??? :)
A Afro-Squad just represents the stuff that guys love. Since guys already love you, consider yourself an honorary Afro-Squad. Well thanks for the interview. I wish you the best of luck in life.
Bruce Santee is known by many as the best wrestler in the state of Florida. He’s a no-brainer future TNA or WWE star. Personally, Bruce is one of my favorite indy workers. He possesses the athletic ability and the personality that makes him stand head and shoulders above his peers. Let’s see what he has to say in this interview.
Thanks for doing this interview with www.MarcusPitt.com. How are you doing today?
Fan- freakin – tastick there SnowMan.
Can you tell us a little about yourself? What is your name? Where do you wrestle? What basic height and weight or other stats would you like to share?
Well if you don’t know by now, I am “The Marquee” Bruce Santee. I am 6’4”, and currently weighing in at 255 lbs..
How can a promoter book you, and in what areas do you primarily wrestle?
I primarily try to stay local, Central Florida area. I work a very mentally draining job during the week, so I like to enjoy my weekends, and not have to travel. I may venture back out this upcoming year, if the price is right. I can be contacted for bookings via Facebook , or email@example.com
How did you break into wrestling? Who trained you, and what was your first year like? Maybe tell us a bit about Dudley Dudley.
I originally began training with the Bushwhackers back in 1999. I learned the basics from them, however, stopped training to become an officer of the law. I eventually got over that retarded a$$ cop kick, and resumed training in 2000. At that time I trained with LeRoy Howard (Navy Seal/ Rastaman) and Jeff Bradley (Original Dudley Dudley) , among others. Training was brutal… very old school. Drills, Hindu Squats, Pushups, more drills… I was pushed beyond my limits..
We would learn certain “moves”, what situations to apply them in, and how to tell a story with the said move. Jeff and Leroy were great at that.
LeRoy also took the time to show me and several others many “legit” submissions, striking, etc. When people hear you are a “wrestler”, they always want to “try you”. LeRoy always said if someone tries you, and then subsequently works you over, it will be embarrassing not only to yourself, but to the business as well. Never go out and look for trouble, but if the trouble finds you, you need to be able to take care of business. Having 7 years of Amateur wrestling experience, the “shooting” was my favorite part of training.
Most importantly, they taught us to RESPECT and PROTECT the business. When you are green, you should be the first one to arrive to the venue, and the last one to leave. You should help with set-up and tear down, even if you are not on the show. If you are in the locker room, and all the seats are taken, and a VET shows up, you should be the first one to give up your chair for them. They paved the way for you! That is how you get booked… You must earn your way in.
Unfortunately a lot of the young kids coming up never learned that. There isn’t much respect in this area anymore.
Who do you enjoy wrestling the most?
Guys that always bring the best out of me, in no particular order: Vordell Walker, Erick Stevens, Jon Davis, Kory Chavis, Francisco Ciatso, Eddie Taurus, Sedrick Strong, Sam Shaw, and I am sure there are a few more. All the aforementioned guys can take it and dish it right back. I would get in the ring with any of them on any given day.
What are the biggest names that you have wrestled?
So can you tell us about any injuries you have had that are wrestling related?
Torn Rotator Cuff in both shoulders, meniscus tears in both knees, several concussions, bruised ribs, sprained MCL, herniated disks, tendonitis in every joint, and a broken pinky toe.
What wrestlers did you enjoy watching as a kid? Did you use them as role models in your career?
I know most guys in this business had a wrestler they looked up to as a kid, I honestly didn’t really. I guess I used to like Hercules Hernandez because he was a friend of my uncle’s.. Other than that, I just watched for the entertainment. Once I became older, I started becoming a fan of guys.
I would have to say one of my all time favorites is Booker T. He always looks like he is having fun in the ring, playing heel or face. That is what I try to radiate to the crowd. I am in the ring, sweating, in my underwear, beating up another sweaty man, in his underwear, in a totally HeteroSexual way, and having a good time doing it.
I like to compare my in-ring style to JBL, with a bit more athleticism. I like to brutalize people… Beat them down! When you see a Bruce Santee match, you KNOW you are watching a fight!
My current favorite (and I am probably the only male over the age of 12 to say this) is Cena. People can $hit on his “in ring” ability all they want, but the way he connects with the crowd is unreal. Love him or hate him, people want to watch him. I believe he is the ONLY ONE left that brings that “true emotion” back to the sport, which has been missing for way too long. He knows how to draw money, and I think, at this point, the WWE would be in a LOT OF TROUBLE without him.
Do you have any websites or upcoming events you would like to promote?
Check me out on Facebook at www.facebook.com/brucesantee.
I can be found locally (Tampa Bay Area) wrestling several times a month for FU Wrestling at Gasoline Alley Tuesday nights in Largo, Florida. In the Central Florida Area, Vintage Wrestling’s show of the year, WrestleBrawl II, January 15, 2011 at the Sanford Salvation Army in Sanford Florida. . I may be popping up again in South Florida and several other places here in the next few months…
We also run a website called www.Wrestling911.com. Have you been there? If so, what do you think about it?
Yes, I am sure I speak for most of the other workers in saying we appreciate what you do with the website in promoting Florida Wrestling.
Is there anything else you would like to talk about?
I would like to talk about all the naughty things I wanna do to that bitch KE$HA…….
Well, who wouldn’t. Thank you for your time.
So, do you make good money working at Hooter’s? I work day shift so I only make about $50.00 in tips. The night shift girls make a lot more than I do.
Are you also going to school? Right now I go to Darton college… just for my general studies. I plan on going to the New York Film Academy when I’m done with all that.
When did you graduate from high school? Last year 2006.
Have you ever done any nude modeling? No, I would do a nude photo only if it was tasteful. Now, if playboy asked that would be different I’d be like hell yeah.
Have you ever dated a guy who you met while at work? I‘ve been on a couple dates with some guys I met while working. None of them were keepers. They think that because you work at Hooters your gonna give it up. That’s not true. Maybe some of the girls will but not me.
Next time I go to Hooter’s, what is the best thing I can do to get on the good side of my waitress when I first get there? Go up to a girl and ask her where are her tables at… It makes us feel like you want us to sit with you and we will treat you nicer. Whatever you do not shake your glass to get are attention that is so f’ed up.
What is the average tip for a $10 dinner? If the girl was horrible tip her a dollar just for trying. If she was sweet and did everything right, always had your drink full give her $5.00. Remember we live off are tips. I only get paid $2.13 an hour.
What do you honestly think of the orange shorts? They are so ugly. I love wearing my black ones. The orange shorts is what Hooter’s is known for so I have to like them.
What rules does Hooter’s make you girls follow? We have to wear a lot of makeup. You can not have tats. If you do (like me) you have to cover them up with makeup. You can not wear jewelry, even if you are married. Your boyfriend can not visit you at work, and you can not hangout after work. If you are seen wearing your uniform outside of work you will get fired.
Have you ever fooled around with a boyfriend while wearing the Hooter’s outfit? No not yet. haha
Have you ever fooled around at Hooter’s? No, like I said your man is not allowed at Hooter’s. Plus they have cameras everywhere.
What’s the most embarrassing thing that has happened to you as a waitress? I’ve dropped plates filled with food before. The most embarrassing thing for me is this one time I went to ask if everything okay, but I burped! haha
Is there anything else you would like to talk about? Yeah, Come to the hooters of Albany, Georgia. Sit at my table and give me a fat tip. Go to the Bikini contest April 28th!! Vote for me its my first one.
Well, thanks for your time. Thank you, SnowMan! This interview made my day. Viva AfroSquad!
The first word that springs to mind when one sets eyes on Mason Raige is inevitably â€“ “power.” Standing six feet four inches tall, and 263 lbs of solid muscle, it’s not difficult to see why he is known as professional wrestling’s premier powerhouse.
Mason how are you doing today? I’m doing very well, thanks.
So, where do you wrestle? Wherever the wind takes me. How’s that for philosophical? I’m currently based in Louisville, Kentucky, so I wrestle here in the area. I’m also wrestling in Indiana, Chicago, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, etc. Since you asked, I’m currently accepting bookings, so any promoters who are looking for an added attraction, get in touch with me!
Are there a lot of good wrestling videos of you online? If so, where can we find them. They’re all on my site, www.masonraige.com We’ll be adding some new videos very soon as well, so be sure to check them out. I have some excellent people working on my site, specifically NZPWI Editor Kirsty Quested. She’s top notch and does a great job. My video editor, Marion Velocci, is also extremely talented. Definitely take a look at the 40+ videos we have posted. More are on the way as well.
As you know, Afro-Squad does a lot of wrestling videos. You can find them by visiting our MySpace page and clicking on the videos link. Is there a chance you’ll be wrestling in Florida where we can tape you? I don’t have any upcoming dates in Florida, but I’d love to wrestle there. Like I said, Florida promoters, get in touch with me. You won’t be disappointed! And then we can make some exciting videos.
So how tall are you and how much do you weigh? I’m 6’3 out of wrestling boots and weigh between 255 and 260. If you catch me on a good eating day, it might be a bit more.
We saw you do a one handed gorilla press. That was fantastic. We’ve never seen that before. Is that a regular move for you? Thank you. I do my best to be innovative. I’ve actually seen one or two guys try to copy it, but it’s never as good as the original! There’s nothing worse than carbon copy wrestlers, which we seem to see a lot of these days. I do try to get in the one-handed press when I can. It’s always a possibility when you see Mason Raige in action.
How much do you max? What does a typical bench workout look like for you? My training these days is very systematic and is more about reps and burn than actual poundage. And you should know that the bench press does not measure one’s real strength. But since you asked, I have benched over 400 pounds when I was lifting heavier and have done over 500 pounds for forced reps with a sturdy spot. Now, I’ll work up to the 315 area, sometimes more, sometimes less. But like I said, it’s never about the weight. It’s about how hard one works.
When you hit the gym, what types of things do you really enjoy? What stuff do you usually avoid? Funny you should ask. I enjoy writing and wrote a piece on gym etiquette. I’ll attach it here:
Some of the most bizarre and interesting people can be found in gyms across the country. In my tenure as a weightlifter, I have come across a slew of freaks, geeks, and weirdos. Here are some tips on how to behave in a gym and, more importantly, how to keep away from the oddballs.
1. If you sweat like a pig, carry a towel with you. There is nothing more disgusting than a pool of sweat left on a machine by some sweaty slob. If I’m waiting for a bench, there’s nothing I want to see less than a sweaty outline of your carcass. What kind of person does this?
2. Talk to as few people as you can. People who go to gyms frequently are lonely souls and look to establish relationships with anyone who will make eye contact. Pick a spot on the wall, or stare down at the floor. Better yet, wear a hat and pull it down over your eyes. It may sound anti-social, but you’ll thank me later.
3. Don’t spend 45 minutes on a machine or a bench. Nothing irks me more than some moron who says he has 15 sets left when I ask if he’s almost done. 15 sets, huh? How’s that marathon weightlifting working out for you, you fool? How about I take my size 15 and kick your teeth down your throat?
4. Wear clothes that fit you. Just because they make spandex in your size doesn’t mean you need to wear it. Sweats or shorts and a t-shirt work so well, so why do so many wear outfits that draw attention to their cellulite and low-hanging guts? And pal, there is no reason for those shorts to be as tight as they are. It looks like you’re smuggling plums in your shorts.
5. If at all possible, avoid flexing in the mirror. Hey, we all do it at home, but give me a break if you’re flexing in the gym. I’ve seen Mr. Olympia contestants flex less during a contest than one of these social outcasts. Oh, and to the guys who pull up their shirts in front of the mirror to flex their often non-existent abdominals: not only do you not impress anyone, but you are also really embarrassing yourself…a lot.
6. Invest in a really good Walkman…is that term outdated now or what? One of my best investments was my IPOD. Not only does it protect me from inane conversations and lurking losers who want to ask how I built my delts (if I had a nickel for every time I was asked a fitness question in the gym, I’d have a lot of nickels), but I have over 1300 songs that set the tone of my workout. Tones range from intense to ultra-intense to get the hell out of my way to Mason Raige is in the house! If the tone is Raige, a lot of poundage is going to be moved, so stay on your toes. They say that music soothes the most savage beast, but my IPOD is responsible for just how animalistic my workout will be.
7. Lift what you can handle. So many morons want to impress the gym rats and stack weights on the bar that they couldn’t lift if they had two friends on either side of the bar plus a big, big bowl of Wheaties right before they came to the gym. It’s been said a million times, but it’s not how much you lift; it’s what you do with the weight you’re lifting. Whenever someone asks me what my max is, I know right away that I’m talking to someone who is either a buffoon or knows nothing about weightlifting. Sometimes it’s a buffoon who knows nothing about anything, so I generally just walk away using a very brisk pace.
8. This one is simple: if you want to practice your pick-up lines or carry on deep, meaningful conversations, go to a Starbucks or to a club. You don’t belong in the gym, and nobody likes you.
9. Working out in jeans, sandals, shorts with dress socks, shorts with dress shoes, or a sweater makes you look like a real clown. Workout attire is quite affordable, so invest in some.
10. If you’re one who walks around like you’re carrying suitcases, you are a jackass. Flailing your arms outward and pretending your lats are much more developed than they are is fooling nobody, and, believe me, many people are laughing at you. I met Dorian Yates, who is easily one of the most freakish bodybuilders in history, and his arms didn’t flail as much as some of the yahoos I see in the gym. Walk like a human and not an ape. That shouldn’t be too hard to remember.
What are your thoughts on supplements? When you go to a store like GNC, what do you stock up on? I’m pretty basic when it comes to supplements. A good protein powder should be the staple for anyone. I’m a big fan of Gaspari products like SuperPump and SizeOn. MuscleTech Products are really good as well. I usually try different products and will continue to use something if it works well. A pre-workout Speed Stack is always nice. My favorite supplement though is InStone chocolate pudding. I can’t get enough of that stuff!
What are your thoughts on pain killers? I am sure there are times where you are in pain. What’s the best way to fight pain? Pain is a big part of wrestling, but I’m not one who takes pills. I usually don’t even take Advil if I have a headache. I’ve always been that way and luckily have always been healthy. I do know a lot of people who have had problems with pill addictions, which is another reason why I don’t go that route. However, I don’t have an addictive personality, so I would take medication properly if prescribed I guess. But there’s a big difference between use and abuse with anything, especially controlled substances.
What are your thoughts on steroids and HGH? I’ll go on record now and say I’m probably the least educated wrestler when it comes to steroids and HGH. I truly know nothing about them. They’re just not for me. I live a healthy lifestyle and have been blessed with good genetics and an excellent work ethic, so I steer clear of drugs of any kind. The way I figure it is that as long as there are giants in wrestling over 7 feet tall and over 400 pounds, why should I risk my well being to add 15-20 pounds of muscle? Will it really make that much of a difference? I’ll be fit and in the gym until the day I die, so I’ve chosen the best path for me. However, I’m not casting dispersions on those who use performance-enhancing drugs. To each his own.
Do you think wrestling could exist today without the use of illegal pain killers, alcohol, and steroids? Are you saying that drugs are what make wrestling what it is? That’s a silly question. Wrestling is built upon athletics, storylines, and larger-than-life characters. Although it seems as if drugs are running rampant in wrestling, people have to remember that each athlete makes his own choices in life.
Who have been your most well known opponents? Working down in OVW has afforded me the opportunity to be in the ring with some of today’s top WWE stars and future stars I’ve also been up to Raw and Smackdown a few times and have worked out with a lot of very popular stars.
How long have you been wrestling? January will be five years. I stepped into the ring for the first time in January 2003.
What are some of your biggest matches? As long as there are people in the seats, every match is a big match. Wrestling the Dudley Boyz in Long Island’s NYWC was a big match in front of a very large crowd. Honestly, too many to list. All are important at the time, and then it’s on to the next one.
What do you love about wrestling? Unfortunately, most of what I love no longer is seen. I loved the larger-than-life characters, the slow and methodical feud builds, and the storytelling that went on both inside and outside of the ring. I loved Piper’s Pit, Hulkamania, the Superfly Splash, the short promos in the corner of the screen during a match, and the banter between Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan. Wrestling captivated me as a young kid and drew me in deeper than I could’ve ever imagined.
What was your biggest (or one of your biggest) mistake(s) in wrestling? Probably starting too late in my life. A lot of guys start in their early teens, but I didn’t get started until later. However, I went to college, got a BA, then earned an MA and etched out a great career as an English teacher before even stepping in a ring. Although I started a bit late, I brought a lot of life experience and intellect into the ring. Some wrestlers can’t even spell intellect!
What injuries have you had? Thankfully, nothing too serious. My worst injury was a torn adductor muscle that kept me out of action for almost five months. It was extremely painful, and I kept aggravating it until I took off the time to heal.
Have you ever injured anyone? If so, how? Isn’t that the goal of any fight? I don’t understand the question. Any time my hand is raised and my opponent is sprawled out on the canvas, I’d assume he’s injured. (No, I’ve never injured anyone, thank God).
Is there anything you would like to promote? Maybe a website, promotion, or t-shirt… Of course! Check out www.masonraige.com There are photos, videos, writings, and great merchandise like $10 t-shirts, DVDs, hats, and even watches! I’m all about the merch! Quality merch!
Is there anything else you would like to talk about? Sure, let’s talk more about me. Mason Raige. The Modern Day Man of Steel. Pro Wrestling’s Premier Powerhouse. Keep your eyes on me as I plan to do big things in the wrestling business. YOU CAN’T CAGE THE RAIGE!
Thanks for your time. My pleasure. You guys keep up the good work! Long live Afros!
Reality Ryan, AKA GQ Money Interview
Exclusively by The NinjaPimp
GQ, please tell us a little bit about yourself.
Well, I grew up in the Northwest suburbs of Chicago always a wrestling fan. My mom got me into wrestling, and I used to watch it on TV with her, and also go to live shows with her as well. I was a high school wrestler, and captain of my team junior and senior year. I have two gold medals in international freestyle wrestling competition, as I competed in the 1992 Maccabi Games which is like a Jewish Junior Olympics. I went to college at the University of Colorado at Boulder, and once I graduated I started pursuing my career in professional wrestling. Iâ€™ve been on a reality show, been a finalist in a contest to become the Los Angeles weather man and Iâ€™m one incredibly good looking guy.
Where have you wrestled?
I got my start in Denver, CO. I was brought in to help start an indy with a man named Dan Magnus and Bobbye Black. We had great success starting the CWO, an organization that drew large crowds (more than 10-times as many people as any indy that ran in the area) and had great media exposure. As the CWO ran its course, I moved out to Los Angeles to work with XPW. I climbed my way up the ranks there (both on screen and behind the scenes), until XPW ran itâ€™s course and then I moved out to Nashville to work with TNA. I moved back to CA where Iâ€™m now involved in the MTV Wrestling Society X project. I have wrestled in CA, PA, NC, AL, TN, GA, SC, CO and a few other states as well.
What did you think of XPW?
XPW was the best! I loved it. I loved our renegade vibe, the hatred by the critics and the no rules mentality. We said what we wanted, did what we wanted and let nobody tell us we couldnâ€™t do something. There were no rules, no boundaries and no limits. I was allowed to explore my creativity and come up with ideas that no other wrestling company would ever think of doing. XPW got a bad rap, but if you really watched it, it was a really good product. The TV-show was hysterical, and the intensity at live shows was incredible. Everybody put us down, but there isnâ€™t a fed out there that offered what we did. People were just haters, but that was fine with us.
Can you tell us a little bit about some of the guys in XPW? Maybe Pogo or Supreme.
All the guys were cool at the time. We all got along and just had a great time being part of a company that was different. Pogo was a nice guy, but could be intimidating as well. I wrestled him once and I was scared shitless. The match was great though, and was an awesome display of a little man getting tossed by a big man. Hell, I got bieled (beeled) (sp?) from one turnbuckle clear across the ring to the other. It was sweet! Supreme was cool, but you knew when you were working with him it was time for business. I remember doing a segment for XPW-TV where Supreme came into my balloon shop office (yes, I ran GQ Balloons for a while) and beat the crap out of me. That was stiff, and it was rough, but it was cool. It made for good TV.
What is your favorite match?
Raw Sewage aka the 30-foot sh!t bomb. In XPW if I wrestled (as opposed to managing) it was always against Angel. We had a great feud and one of our highlight moments was in a match where he sidewalk slammed me off a 30-foot tower into a kiddy pool of raw sewage which was on a stack of two tables. That match was fun, and so was the Genocide cage match. Once again Angel and I ended up high above the ground, this time 20-feet up on a rickety home made cage that we thought was going to collapse. I tossed him off, and then jumped off the cage with a 20-foot cross body on top of him, and the security guards who were checking up on him.
Is there anyone that you don’t get along with?
Then, no! Now, oh yeah. My former best friend Kaos and I donâ€™t talk at all. He fucked me over big time when we moved to Nashville and I will never forgive him for that. Also Smokey Carmichael (a friend from Colorado who I brought into XPW) who also fucked me over when we moved to Nashville. The pricks moved out without saying anything, without leaving a note or making a phone call, nothing. And this was the day before rent was due. Fuck them!
What do you think of Rob Black?
Rob is a great guy and is very misunderstood. Heâ€™s always been good to me and allowed me to do what I do best, perform. If you get to know the real Rob black heâ€™s a good guy. The public persona, well, that could be rough. The persona is an asshole, the person is not.
How did you get the name GQ Money?
The 1st XPW show I went out to see I was sitting in the bleachers pre show with my buddy The Giant (not WWEâ€™s) watching the set up and just checking things out. Lizzy Borden came up to me and said, â€œYou must be GQ Moneyâ€ and that was that. I hated the name, thought it was too clichÃ©, but itâ€™s cool. The funny thing, back when I was a kid my rap name was GQ as well.
Where can people learn more about you?
What do you think of Ninjapimp.com?
Itâ€™s a fun site with great interviews.
Have you checked out our Afrosquad page?
Oh yeah. Itâ€™s a well known fact that if I could grow an afro I would. Iâ€™m funkdafied, fortified and amplified to the next level!
What about wrestling as an evil pimp?
The GQ Money character had a little bit of an evil pimp vibe, especially once I got to Philly and blended the original GQ Money persona with the Ultra Violent GQ Money persona. I was almost involved with a pimp and ho wrestling fed once but it didnâ€™t work. In college we threw a 40oz pimp and ho party where my band The Electric Manny Schevitz playedâ€¦ It was tight. I also made a TV commercial for a school project for â€œPlayboy Malt Liquorâ€ because â€œPimpinâ€™ Aintâ€™ Easy.â€ Oh yeah!!!!
Do you think there is a problem with drug use in wrestling?
The only problem is when individual people abuse the drugs and canâ€™t use them responsibly. Taking pain pills for pain is fineâ€¦ Taking 26 pain pills for pain is not! Do people do drugs? Sure they do. I never had first hand experience with anyone who had a problem, but drugs are always around. I think thatâ€™s the case with any aspect of the entertainment business. Itâ€™s part of the lifestyle.
Who is the most beautiful woman in wrestling?
Hands down, nobody holds a candle to indy, XPW and Wrestling Society X wrestler Valentina (J Love).
What is the most insane thing you saw in XPW?
Supreme catching on fire after I gave him a diamond cutter from the top rope threw a flaming table! He got burned bad, and spent a couple of days in the hospital. I felt so bad, even though it wasnâ€™t my fault. I was involved in the â€œstuntâ€ so I just had this enormous feeling of guilt. Supremeâ€™s kid never liked me after that, but I couldnâ€™t blame him? As far as he knew I torched his dad. The craziest thing was I had to go on TV week after week and brag about it.
What was it like to be behind the scenes over there?
A whole lot of fun. It was a fantastic 2.5 years of my life. At the same time as working there, I was also touring the country doing stand up comedy with Ron Jeremy, so it was a pretty fun time! Ob and I always clicked creatively and came up with crazy ideas. He wasnâ€™t afraid to try something different, and neither was I. Kevin (Kleinrock) and (White Trash Johnny) Webb were always the voices of reason, while me and Rob were always like, â€œWhy canâ€™t we do that? This is wrestling, there are no rules!â€
Do you have anything to ask us, the writers of ninjapimp?
You ever been anally probed by an alien named Zolorp? Have you ever drank sheepâ€™s milk straight from the sheepâ€™s teet? Have you ever had the urge to urinate on yourself while waiting in line at the movies?
Any parting words?
Smoke and mirrors!!!
Well thanks for your time.
Juggernaut, Wrestling Interview
Juggernaut is a 6’4″ 390 lb monster who was undefeated in 2004. He’s been seen in WCW, but he calls ECCW his home.
Ninjapimp.com likes to profile up and coming wrestling stars, but you have already had your fair share of success. What are some of the championships you have held? Oh man… I can’t even remember most of the titles I’ve held over the years. I’ll try to think of a few of them… I am the current and six time ECCW / NWA Pacific Northwest Champion…. Steve Corino used to run a wrestling company called PWF out of PA, I was the first ever PWF Extreme Champion…. ummm… I’ve had a few tag titles along the way with guys like Dr. Luther and Apocalypse (The Shadow from New Japan)… I think the total is somewhere around 20 titles in just under 10 years…. something like that.
Didn’t you also work with WCW? Did you have a tag team partner back then? I did a little work with WCW back in the day, basically appeared on TV once and got paid to sit around and eat in catering a couple other times. The TV appearance was an opening match on WCW Thunder in 2000 where myself and a couple other guys took on the STELLAR (I hope you can sense my sarcasm) tag team of Kronik in a 2 minute super squash match. That was the day that I truly found out that it didn’t matter how good you are to make good money and get a good push in a major wrestling company.
What else can you tell us about your WCW experience? WCW was a sinking ship when I worked for them. They were pretty much dead and buried and were just waiting for the dirt to get thrown on the casket. The locker room was a little bit tense because everyone knew they would soon be unemployed. Some of the guys obviously had gained enough recognition to move on to the WWE or get consistent bookings internationally, but alot of the guys came out of the WCW power plant and had no chance of making it anywhere else. I just consider myself lucky to have met a few great guys that happened to be working for WCW at the time. I received alot of really good feedback from the guys in charge at the time, and in fact I was told that I would have been offered some kind of developmental deal if the company was not going under… that was a nice confidence booster.
Where did you get the name Juggernaut. We originally know then name from the Marvel comics character. Though I think the Marvel character Juggernaut is about the most badass villain of all time, my use of the name actually has nothing to do with comics at all. Before I received my black belt in Judo, I was undefeated in every Judo tournament I had ever entered. My sensei said that he though I was the unstoppable force, and that I should be called Juggernaut. When I finally did get my black belt in 1996, my sensei got the name Juggernaut embroidered onto my Judo gi. Irony bit me in the ass when I lost my first fight as a black belt… but the name stuck, and I just couldn’t think of anything else when it was time to break into the wrestling business.
This year’s PWI 500 lists you at 292. That puts you ahead of Zach Gowan, Axl Rotten, Bob Sapp, and a bunch of other big names. What do you think of the list? I hold a special place in my heart for the PWI 500. Since I was a young Juggernaut I used to buy the magazine every year, and read all the bios in it from 500 all the way to #1. The magazine takes alot of abuse every year from the self proclaimed “Smart” marks of the world, but you have to take it for what it is. A lot of the guys on that list would never get any press at all if it wasn’t for the 500. It’s always interesting to see where I end up every year… I don’t put a lot of stock into being rated ahead of the guys you named. It’s kinda cool seeing myself move up a little every year… I’m on the right track, if I keep it up, I should be in the top 10 by the time I am 80 years old!
We think you should have been listed higher. Who else do you think are some of the underrated guys that should be higher up on that list? I appreciate people thinking I should be higher on the list, I know that I give people their moneys worth every time I step in the ring, and that’s all I can do… Do I think I am better than some of the guys ahead of me?…. there is no doubt I am, but being in Canada, and being in the west is never good for getting too much press or exposure in a magazine that is based oout of the east coast of the USA. As for guys that being rated higher…. I think I can probably name at least 20 guys that never even made the list that I would easily consider them some of the top wrestlers on earth. But like I said, you have to take the list for what it is, and as mad as some people get about it, you really need to respect the fact that a major Pro Wrestling magazine is giving some press to some guys that would normally not ever see their names in print.
Some people underestimate your marital arts skills. Don’t you hold 2 black belts? I don’t think anyone underestimates my martial arts skills, but it’s normally not something I walk around talking about all the time. Every once in a while I throw some Judo stuff into my matches to keep people thinking. I am very proud of what I achieved in the world of Martial Arts. I earned a First degree black belt in Judo in 1996 and a first degree black belt in a traditional form of Japanese Jujitsu in 1997. Unfortunately, as my wrestling schedule got busier and busier, my opportunities to train in Judo and Jujitsu became less. Once I am done with the wrestling business, I’m sure I will at least return to Judo which I absolutely love.
It sounds like you are a regular ninja. You also have some pimping skills. Can you tell us about your juggernaut chicks? Also, didn’t you have an manager? Who is she? I’m no Ninja, but I am seen quite often wandering wearing Tabi shoes (Ninja shoes), they are the most comfortable shoes on earth. I do ok when it comes to the ladies, I have no complaints… I love the Juggerchicks… I love them all in their own special ways. I’ll admit that I’ve been dropping the ball getting some new pictures up there for everyone though, I’ll work on it….. A couple of them are good friends of mine that just like seeing themselves on the internet…. A couple are ex girlfriends… and a couple are just flat out dirty tramps…. but they are good for the business. I’ve had a couple managers / valets in my time…. but nothing really worth talking about…. Except Princess Lily…. she’s the best!
Can you tell us about your website, Juggernaut t-shirts, and shocker clothes? I’ve had a website since about 1997, but juggernaut-wrestling.com has been online since about 1999. A website is the absolute best way for people to keep up to date with what their favorite wrestlers are up to. With so many guys and so little mainstream press, the internet is absolutely essential in keeping your name in the mix. The Juggernaut merchandise on my website right now is pretty much crap, nothing to write home about, but if someone really wants to have a shirt it gives a couple options. The Shocker clothing is absolutely brilliant… Shocker is a company that started up here in Calgary a couple years ago, and when I saw it I need to find out more… so I worked out a small advertising deal with the owner of the company… funny stuff…. Two in the pink…. one in the stink!
Back to the ring. What are some of your more painful ring experiences? One of my most painful I remember is actually one of my most recent… I was recently in a match down in Idaho with Maniac Matt Borne (AKA the Original Doink the Clown) with Mick Foley as a special guest referee. At one point I turned around in the ring to see Matt in full swing with the ring bell, by the time I saw it, it was WAY too late to try and bring a hand up and block it… I could have sworn someone shut the lights out for a quick second and I found out when I got home that I was the proud owner of another concussion, and a very minor nerve pinch in my neck from the lovely ring bell. The neck still hurts now over a month after it happened. Other than that I have had too many painful things happen in the ring to really pinpoint any in particular… most of the time I am more dangerous to myself than anyone else is to me.
What was your most triumphant moment in the ring? I’m not sure what I would consider a triumphant moment in the ring… I set some goals for myself when I first started wrestling, and topping that list was wrestling in Japan, which I have done now many times. I enjoy wrestling and the people I know through wrestling so much, that every time I go to a building for a show it’s triumphant. No matter when I decide to hang up the boots, I am confident that I can look back and be proud with what I have done. I appreciate everything from my first match ever, to this interview. I have been extremely fortunate to make a career out of what I love (and sometimes hate) for almost ten years….. I can’t think of anything bertter than that.
With that, I thank you for your time. Fans, please check out Juggernaut Wrestling
Independent Filmmaker, Ivan
another exclusive NinjaPimp interview!
Ivan, can you tell us a little bit about your job?
Many might think that my job is fairy simple. A camera, some lights, naked girls and there ya’ have it. It can be that simple, I try to go the extra step. Making movies that people not only can spank to but be entertained by. I was once told that renters often keep and buy the DVD’s, which is from where a lot of distribution comes from … re-orders. So I try to put something in each movie to make it worth keeping for the customer. I have re-done the Texas Chainsaw Massacre final chase but with two naked girls and a 3 foot #&#^! replacing the chainsaw. I have done up skirt hula hoop teases, funny vignettes, guess the camel toe games, etc. etc. I love my job and I love giving fans interesting things to look at. Plus yes the girls are hot, the girls are fun, and sometimes the perks are way okay.
What movies have you worked on?
I have a line called Ivan’s S^@&-O-RAMA presents, it’s a horror spoof line which has been very successful. The first in the series Texas’ @$$#0L# Massacre was nominated for 3 AVN Awards including Best Comedy, Video. It was also nominated for the Best Comedy at the XRCO Awards. And won Best Parody from Adam Film World Adult Guide Awards. The second was Dawn of the Head and currently has three pre-noms including the Best Comedy again. I am currently working on The Sex Sense. I also do an Asian gonzo line “Youth ‘N’ Asia”, a vignette series “Sexual Predator” and recently took over Tom Byron’s @$$ Eaters Unanimous. I have edited over 70 movies and did camera on over 40 movies for Evolution Erotica and Extreme Associates.
What would you consider your best work?
By far my favorites are my two $LU!-O-Ramas, I did horror movies before getting into porn and it was a natural transition. I love Sexual Predator ..2, it was my first true vision and baby. I cherish the Killer Klown vignette, it was in my head for over a year before I shot it. In the order I guess it’s Texas’ @$$#0LE Massacre, Sexual Predator 1 & 2, and Dawn of the Head.
What is the most amazing thing you have seen during a video?
(Edited) My most amazing video moment has to be shooting the Texas chase scene and watching the chase footage from my little Kodak camera with a fisheye. Everyone always comments on those shots. I am very proud of it and the two girls involved, Kami Andrews and Gia Paloma…
Does anything in the business bother you?
I love women, a lot. I can not stand seeing how some men mistreat them. On my shoots I treat everyone with the respect I wish to be treated with. Every female performer is someone’s daughter, sister, mother, wife, and/or girlfriend. They have a life when the camera stops rolling. I think many people forget that. I know of guys not hiring girls or even make-up artists unless the girls give them “favors”. I don’t hire performers male or female that disrespect others or have no clue on how to be professionally inept. Like showing up on time or prepared. The drug use I am not a fan of, but to each his own. Just keep it away from me and my space.
Who are the best photographers in the business?
I have worked with a few photographers so far. I have stayed exclusive with my companies and know of who I have been around. Kris King is amazingly talented, so is Joel Jet who is our regular guy. I have to be bias, my friend Mark Milano who is no longer with our company is my favorite. He is a great friend and a very creative guy. He used to take these great set shots of me, I use two of them still on my business cards. He has now started shooting video as well. I often tell him he needs to make a coffee table book, I would be the first in line for it.
Who are the best people to work with?
People that can separate the business part from it. It’s still a business, treat it that way. Be on time, be prepared, and be into it. Of course having people who enjoy sex is a huge plus. You can talk someone into doing so much.
Who are the worst people to work with?
There are girls, girls in every sense of the word, that think they are pre-Madonna’s. Throwing attitude, showing up whenever they please, being high on set. I can’t imagine how some of these people live their lives without a babysitter. We had one girl tell us she doesn’t wear a watch so she wouldn’t know how late she is. Recently we had an agent bring a girl an hour late and during stills while getting her into position, we realized he never told her what type of scene it was. Scene was cancelled, this agent is notorious for this. I won’t be using him again.
Who are the best directors?
From my short expansion into the industry, I have gathered that Best comes with many aspects. Where they work, what they do, the budgets for hiring better/worse talent, how they deal with performers, how they treat people around them. Anyone can turn on the camera and say “fuck!”. I believe the best directors are well-rounded in their field and are always looking to improve. I have seen people around a long time who know only enough to push the red button and record sex … and I know people who deserve the break that they ares still waiting for. I am not sure who are the best, I guess these days we will go by who sells the most.
Are drugs a regular part of the adult movie business?
I think drugs come with any business. When I worked in TV and Film, I saw as much as I did in p0rn. It’s just in porn some people over do it. I am straight-edge, shit don’t even drink coffee. But d@mn do I love to eat. That’s my drug. I don’t see why people act as if drugs are so cool, prancing around telling stories. Does anyone respect some who keeps saying they love pills? Or are the a butt of all jokes? Some people use drugs to get through the day, some use it get what they need, and others are very responsible with them. I just came of a pretty extensive psychological mind-f#&k and depression. Some people would say get high, drink, loosen up. I didn’t and you know what it was hard but at the end worth. The pain was bad, the emotions were heart wrenching but at least I let my mind heal itself as it is supposed to do.
I think in moderation everything is okay. Do what you will as long as you are not hurting anyone around you especially friends and family.
How safe is it for a girl to work in the business?
The safety for the girls in the business is pretty high. They choose who they work with, what they do, and how. I know sometimes they are pressured or asked but eventually it’s their decision. I believe it’s safer then stripping or escorting. God knows who you might run into or work with in those fields. I have more horror stories from stripping and dancing then ever in p0rn.
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
Honestly I see myself in the business, hopefully with a small successful company. Running it with a nice woman in my life. My ex-girlfriend and I often talked about a dream like that. We have a few friends who are living this dream right now. I can also see myself settling down and running a small bakery in a small town. I need a simple relaxing conclusion, no partying just my XBox 720, a big screen TV, DirectTV football package, and lady. Hopefully by then LA will have a team. Go Los Angeles Stars! (my prediction on the team and name)
How often do you work per week?
I edit daily but probably shoot 2 to 3 scenes a week. Usually a scene a day. Besides shooting during the day, I make my own schedule. Often editing late night to early morning, it’s more peaceful that way. I spend a lot of time working on my website and doing extensive journals about my daily existence. cheap plus coming … IamIVAN.com :)
Do you have anything to say to NinjaPimp’s fans?
Stay tuned for more cool SL#&-O-Rama movies, give them a chance you might find them entertaining. And just maybe I will have a ninja pimp in my next movie ;)
We’d love to see a NinjaPimp in your next movie. Especially if it was an evil one! Thanks for a very insightful interview. I wish you the best. Please keep in touch!
Alright Miss DeVille, how are you doing today? Pretty better. Getting over a nasty cold!
I am sorry to hear that you were sick. When you are not sick, where can people see you perform? Anywhere over the North-east! I wrestle pretty much in all New England, and New York.
I have heard that you sometimes break dance in the ring. What fly dance moves to you perform for the crowd? I am a fan of the pop & lock and just doing the robot. The worm is also a favorite.
What are some of your favorite in-ring moves? I have two moves that I do regularly. One is a Swanton from the top rope which is my finisher. Then I have a submission which is a form of an STF, but I do a bridge over the person, locking their legs and put them in a chinlock.
Haven’t you used a gimmick where you are a lady pimp? Can you tell us about that? While doing my rap/ghetto gimmick I’d do some shows that would want me to soften up my gimmick a bit. Some feds it was too gimmicky for, so I’d do the lady pimp gimmick which is basically boas, shades, i can still break dance and come out to rap and I was all set.
Have you ever considered wearing an afro wig to the ring? Don’t you think it would fall off?
I’ve never had any problems with mine. Anyway, what do you do outside of wrestling? I work two jobs! Waitress on nights, and work at Old Navy during the days. I love to work out and hang out with friends other than that.
A lot of divas now-a-days are models and not wrestlers. What do you think that is doing to the industry? I personally think it is kind of hurting the industry for the women specifically that want to actually get out there and wrestle. I don’t even see that many girls on TV that can actually take a hip-toss or an arm drag, which is sad because there are so many talented girls on the INDY scene that deserve a chance.
It also seems that very few women can make it to the WWE without breast implants. Do you think that is healthy for the industry? I don’t feel every girl should feel obligated to get breast implants when getting a WWE contract. If they want to get breast implants, that is a different story. I know they love there women beautiful and busty though, it does make ratings.
What are your thoughts on steroid abuse in the industry? Do you think a tough drug policy in the major companies would save lives? This basically ties into the breast implant question. Many guys have to be big and muscular, and a lot of them depend on steroids to get them there. It’s unfortunate though, because it does ruin health in the long run.
Don’t you have a website? Will you tell us about it? Yeah, my website www.missdeville.cjb.net has been up for a few years. Good friend and tag team partner of mine Kayla Sparks runs it. She is amazing with website/graphics.
Do you have anything to ask us? How did you think of the name of your site Ninja pimp? It’s frickin’ awesome!
Well, my editor Mervin came up with it. He pointed out that Ninja and Pimps are totally sweet. I agreed and Afro-Squad was born. Good question. Thanks for your time.
Some South Florida husbands may have a bit of explaining to do when they get subpoenas for illegally downloading porn, as SunSentinel.com aptly points out.
Being on the hook for $150,000 to an adult filmmaking company might not sit well with a significant other.
The company, Elegant Angel, doesn’t have names yet, but it has Internet addresses of illegal downloaders and has filed suits against 58 “John Does” in South Florida, and it is seeking subpoenas to get the names.
