Stride Pro Wrestling's fashionistas

Professional wrestling has always had its share of fashionistas. Men and women who pushed the envelope with their outfit choices. Legends like "Classy" Freddie Blassie, Jim Cornette and Jimmy Hart come to mind along with current talent Rockstar Spud. But the big stage isn't the only place you'll see some fashion statements. Stride Pro Wrestling has a nice share of fashionistas.



J. Wellington Beauregard has had an interesting sense of fashion for years. I first met 'J. Wells' during our days with All American Pro Wrestling. The self-proclaimed billionaire likes to wear matching shirt and pants combos. From time to time he'll throw in a sweater tied around his neck too.

A member of the DR Party under the management of Beauregard has turned heads with not only his flashy tights but with his noteworthy hair. Scott Phoenix has flowing locks that leave many fans and wrestlers in the locker room green with envy.

I'm going to throw myself into the mix too. At the first Stride Pro Wrestling show (then CMA Wrestling) I wore my Bobby "the Brain" Heenan jacket. It's an old suit coat my mom repurposed with red glitter material for my costume at WrestleMania 27. But instead of letting it sit in my closet, I decided to give the jacket new life with my ring announcing. I've also added some suits from Shinesty and Opposuits and even an 'electric cowboy' jacket from my friend Todd Ellis.
