Hillbillies and Professional Wrestling

January 29, 2014

Professional Wrestling Hillbillies

Throughout time there have been countless numbers of “cliques” which is what makes the wrestlers more recognizable. There have been gangsters, working clas types, native americans, wildmen, pretty boys, and even an animal or 40. But probably one of the most popular genres of “cliques have been the hillbillies. Let me explain why Hog Dynasty is going to be so successful in the world of professional wrestling.

Known for their love of scufflin’ and “rasslin'”, hillbillies oftentimes bring a likeability to their character that fans are very responsive to. Hailing from places like Morgans Corner, and Mud Lick, their wholesomeness and down-to-earthiness is something fans throught the years have been able to relate to.

Here are a few of the wrestling hillbillies who have really made an impact in the wrestling world:

Haystacks Calhoun: This WWE Hall of famer was probably the most cheered and revered wrestler in history. At 601 pounds from Morgans Corner Arkansas, Haystacks had a boyish charm and a winning smile about him that the fans had grown to love. But get this fighting hillbilly mad and you awaken a can of moonshine that doiesnt quit.

But haystacks wasnt just a big man he was actually an accomplished wrestler. he had a long running feud with 800 lb Happy Humphrey and almost always got the better of him just by using wrestling.

Haystacks was a 4x Heavyweight tag team champ, Most Notably with the legendary Tony Garea. He was a legend many feel should be inducted into the wwe Hall of fame in the near future

Giant Haystacks: From the UK, this massive man (685 pounds!) was named after Haystacks Calhoun. He wrstled throughout the Uk for a lkong time before coming to the states where he joined WCW as Loch Ness, a member of Kevin Sullivans Dungeon of Doom. This was a short libved run however because of his ongoing battle with cancer.

The Kiwi Sheepherders: Butch miller and Luke williams ran roughshod over tagteams as both the Kiwi sheepherders and the Bushwhackers in their wwe run but little do people realize that they have been wrstling since 1964! So this year will mark 50 years that they have been in the business as a tag team a remarkable feat. For the better part of the first half of thier career they were villified as an evil maniacal australian/new zealend tag team of crazy backwoods hillbilly types, but upon entering the wwe in 1989 they immediately began having a HUGE fan base as the crazy face licking, sock sniffinf, sardine eating bushwhackers. This renowned team has won an amazing total of 26 tag team championships in their career!

Hillbilly Jim: Part of the Rock N’ Wrestling boom of the mid 1980s, this backwoods bumkin was seen sitting front row at numerous events and decided to try his hand in the wwe rings with the help of his training buddy hulk Hogan. Hillbilly Jim was loved by everyone as a humanitarian and a wrestler. he did lots of charity work for the wwe. But his skills werent limited to being a wrestler. He was also a manager of many other hillbilly wrestlers that Im about to delve into.

Uncle Elmer: Stan Plowboy Frazier was a minor character in the 70s having some small success as a tag team partner with Jerry Lawler. He also took on the role of Kamala II. But his most recognizable character was of good ol goofy Uncle Elmer in the WWE in 85 and 86. At 460 pounds he fit the old hillbilly uncle character to a t> Hes to this still probably most famous for actually getting married on an episode of Saturday nights main event

Cousin Luke and Cousin junior: “Cousins” of Hillbilly Jim they rounded out the hillbilly team. Luke had a somewhat successful character as the devil worshipping kharma in florida in the 80s. Junior actually first gained success in the business by being one third of the world famous Moondog team, Moondog Cujo.

Henry O Godwinn and Phineas Godwinn: After a medium range jobber run as the team of Tex Slazenger and Shanghai pierce in WCW, this team was brought to the WWE during a time of a lot of comical characters. But these 2 hog farmers proved their critics wrong by twice becoming WWE tag team champions.

Wrestling has always had its share of characters but hillbillies remain among the most beloved. Their success is an inspiration to all those who feel that you need to have money and power to succeed in the business. A little hard work and chicken slop goes a long way as well. The latest hillbilly family to enter the ranks is Hog Dynasty lead by the Hog Commander Uncle Jed. He is training his family members like Hillbilly Bones and Cousin Bruce to beat Hogs. Uncle Jed says that if you can beat a Hog you can beat any man! See them live at a Pro Wrestling Fit show near you!

Pro Wrestler Pretty Boy Papi

November 19, 2013

Pro Wrestler Pretty Boy Papi“Pretty Boy PAPI “

Born: JULY 31, 1987

Height: 6ft

Weight: 220lbs

From: North Philly

Nickname: “Swag Man”

Signature Move: SWAG-Matic

He is the man that introduced SWAG in to professional wrestling. Pretty Boy PAPI has been from battle to battle, from opponent to opponent proving to fans everywhere that he has the talent and charisma to be in this industry. What once was a fairytale, a goal that seemed impossible to accomplish, began to look like reality after his 20’s? Papi, whose real name is Michael Nieves, began like every other kid wrestling on his bed and moving it to the backyard with his brothers and cousins which to him at the time was the closest he would ever get to becoming a pro wrestler, but he knew and realized that his thirst and ambition of becoming a real champion a real athlete and stepping into a real ring would take him to make a huge decision a take a step forward.

After years of battling with health and personal issues Michael decided that unless he tore down the walls holding him back from his dreams, he would never be that man that could hear fans chanting for him as he one day would become a champion. He began to train at a Pro Wrestling School in Lakeland, Florida by E.J Giglo who at the time also owned his own promotion which was where Pretty Boy Papi was born on May 2011. During his training days many obstacles came up which delayed training and made his debut look further away and almost impossible.

Papi debuted his wrestling career as one half of a Puerto Rican Tag Team unfortunate his tag team debut only lasted that one night. Pretty Boy began to wrestle singles and began to grow and learn how the “Business” really worked. From the start of his wrestling career Pretty Boy Papi landed right in the spot light facing veterans and champions in many promotions across the state, going into his matches as the underdog but quickly earning the respect of fans with his old school style. As a face or heel Papi has been a fan favorite and has been nicknamed by wrestling fans as the “SWAG MAN”.

Pretty Boy Papi seems to chase his dreams and work harder with every match hoping to one day be the wrestler he wanted and craved to be as a young wrestling fan himself watching legends like Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels, Hulk Hogan and Triple H. The “Swag Man” after almost just nearly two years in the industry on November 16th 2013 was given the opportunity to get in the squared circle for the promotion PWF international against his opponent Bobby Fonta where the winner would become the PWF JR United States Champion. The crowd cheered on for Papi from the get go even though it wasn’t looking “Pretty” for Papi as Fonta worked on his knee to make sure the big man could not get up, but as the crowd never lost faith neither did Papi as he fought back and never gave up. Papi dodging the belt as Fonta attempted to use it was able to connect his finisher the “SWAG MATIC” and became the New PWF JR United States Champion and held his first ever title that night November 16th 2013. Papi had accomplished a goal of being a champion for the first time.

Pretty Boy holds nothing back when it comes to being in the ring. He has been in matches such as Tag team, singles, triple treats, fatal fours, battle royals, handicap, and no DQ.  From opening matches to mid card and main eventing Pretty Boy Papi never forgets to bring his “SWAG”. From a fan base that runs across the country in different states and out the country in near Caribbean islands Papi is starting to feel his dreams closer to being a reality.  Standing at over 6 feet tall he has literally made his opponents look up at him putting fear and gaining respect as one of the toughest rising talents professional wrestling has seen.  With his “Pretty Boy” looks and tough man style he has truly put the meaning in his catch phrase “MY SWAG DNT FADE”….

Pro Wrestling Referee JW Rubright

The Law and Order of Pro Wrestling Fit, JW Rubright

As a young man who had been a lifelong fan of the sport of Professional Wrestling, James W. Rubright had a dream of becoming a professional wrestler. As he began the training process he soon learned that the days of a classic mat wrestler were gone and that promoters favored the taller heavyweights because heavy weight wrestlers draw larger crowds. Training with these giants resulted in some injuries that would make a career as a pro wrestler difficult. As a law student he decided put his strong sense of right and wrong to work and be the man upholding justice inside the ring as a Professional Referee.

Promoters were quickly attracted to his “Take No Bull and Never Back Down” attitude and found that he was an excellent choice as a referee who could keep these beastly warriors in control. After finishing his training at a Pro Wrestling school, his first professional match as a Referee was with ASW. The oppenents in that match were Maximo Miranda v. Norman Wright. News of his law and order ability to maintain control in the ring spread and soon he was working for promotions all across the state including Pro Wrestling Fit shows in Orlando, Florida. Now, just two short years later, Referee Rubright is just seven matches away from his 500th match.

JW Rubright was trained at the Pro Wrestling school run by Florida Pro Wrestling Icons Frankie Reyes, Jimmy Mack, and Dan Krigbaum. His favorite match that he has ever refereed was Steve Corino v. Greg “The Hammer” Valentine at a Pro Wrestling Xtreme show. He loves being a referee because it shows anyone that you don’t have to be 6’7” to be an authority figure or to make it in the professional wrestling industry.

JW Rubright now serves at the chairman of the Referee Committee for Pro Wrestling Fit and maintains law and order in all of their title matches. As a professional one of his major goals it to Referee a World Title Match overseas in front of Pro Wrestling Fit’s International fans.

Orlando Florida Pro Wrestler Curse

January 12, 2013
pro wrestling in orlando florida

Orlando, Florida based Pro Wrestler CURSE!

Pro Wrestling Fit USA proudly presents CURSE! From the badlands of South Dakota, far beyond the confines of civilization comes a new threat to the roster of Pro Wrestling Fit. Now making his home in Orlando, Florida, standing at six feet eight inches tall and 281lbs of destruction, comes the dark tower of power, the walking disaster area known only as Curse. This living monolith has cut his teeth all over the globe since dominating the world of Professional Wrestling and has now set his sights on championship gold here in PWF.

Little is known about his life away from the ring although he has made it very clear that he has a deep rooted hatred for a current Champion in the PWF family and is waiting to exact his revenge. Although he has been vague about this quest for vengeance what is obvious is this level of hatred can only be of a personal nature. Recently, recruiting manager Leroy Jenkins to help him secure his shot at the title and with it his burning desire for revenge. While he has not stated who this person is the rumors in the locker room is that Curse feels betrayed by this individual. Some believe they broke into the business together and while this person went on to become a Champion, Curse was left to rot in the concrete jungles and barbwire nightmares of other organizations of the far northeast, miles away from the Florida territories. Having newly aligned himself with the Palace of Pain the sky truly is the limit for both Curse and Mr. Jenkins, a deadly combination of ruthless aggression and unstoppable power. Curse no doubt will find himself right at home with the pain, fear, and intimidation the Palace has become infamous for dishing out.

Because no one knows Curse’s real identity many questions currently go unanswered but some speculate he had a military background due to his travels and training prior to professional wrestling. This would explain some of his tactics as well as the fact that he spent a few years living in the far east, mainly Korea & Japan. As a monster of power in the squared circle using an attack of overwhelming physical strength he has also in the past demonstrated various martial arts techniques such as joint locks, and a striking reminiscent of kick boxing and Tae Kwon Do. Curse has the ability to focus so intently on his target that he can block out all things around him, including pain. Sometimes this has been to his disadvantage. Easily enraged he has from time to time become so fixated on crushing his enemy he has taken count outs and followed opponents through the crowd of spectators or into the locker room just to continue their beatings. Feeding on his own anger as a source of power and actually drawing strength from his own rage there is no reasoning with Curse.

As a Professional Wrestler he cannot be bought or bargained with, and your pleas will go unanswered. He is the rage personified, the physical embodiment of fear. He can smell the blood of those he set his sights on a mile away and once he does nothing on Earth can stop him. Curse feels no pain, Curse has no compassion. And what others call Hell, he simply calls home. The 6’8 walking disaster area has arrived & a very large and dark shadow has fallen over the landscape of Pro Wrestling Fit, and its name is Curse. He now lives in Orlando, Florida and trains full time at the PWF Pro Wrestling school in Orlando, Florida.
