I have done some interesting wrestling related interviews through the years.  I've talked with legends like "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan, "The Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase, and Lex Luger.  (You can go here to see all of my interviews)  I've done interviews with current stars like The Miz, Antonio Cesaro, and Mickie James.  Recently, I had the pleasure of talkingon the phone with The Estonian Thunderfrog.

Unless you're a big fan of independent wrestling, you're probably asking, "Who the hell is the Estonian Thunderfrog?" Well, he's one of the most entertaining wrestlers on the Wrestling Is roster.  I'll admit, I don't know much about Wrestling Is, I know there are several different groups, many use the same wrestlers on there shows though.  I've seen Wrestling Is Fun on iPPV with the Frog, as well as members of the Batiri, Mr. Touchdown, and Dasher Hatfield.  There's also Wrestling Is Heart among the promotions involved.

The Thunderfrog as you might have guessed hails from Estonia.  He is the country's pride and joy, or so he tells me.  He's been wrestling for about a year now and is still searching for his princess.  I hope he finds her one of these days, but in the mean time, I'll enjoy this character.  My favorite quote from the interview I did with him was "Wrestling Is Fun, Intense, Heart, it is all one big juicy pancake.  I love it.  Is very good."  Great stuff.

This Sunday I will see my first Wrestling Is Intense show in Carbondale, Illinois.  The show is at the SIU Student Center in Ballroom D at 3 pm.  I can't wait.  Some of the wrestlers I worked with in All American Pro Wrestling and Pro Wrestling Collision will be at this show and I haven't seen them in months.  It'll be fun catching up with The Daywalkers, Angelus Layne, and Christian Rose.  My dream is to have a photo taken with the Estonian Thunderfrog, Jervis Cottonbelly, and Darkness Crabtree.

Wrestling Is provides entertainment for the entire family.  I hope the show in our area is successful, because I want them to come back.  Get out there and support independent wrestling when it comes to your area.
