Known For: Being the owner and presenter of British Wrestling Radio since day one.

1. When did you first get into wrestling and what drew you to the sport?

1974, I was five and watching World of Sport and at 4 pm was professional wrestling and for the next 45 minutes, I was completely hooked and have been ever since. I think I was drawn into it by the fact you had a good guy and a bad guy and I loved booing and cheering at the screen also wanting to to do the same things with my younger brother and we always tried to copy our heroes on screen and I loved all that.

2. Tell us a little about BWR Radio and how it all came about?

British Wrestling Radio is a show that is about promoting all British wrestling no matter where the show is I will mention it every week. It came about after I was listening to a few online shows coming from the USA and no one was talking about the Brits like Regal, Williams, Magnus, all the great British wrestlers and I sat at home thinking I got to do something about this so I typed in Facebook Wrestling and lets see what came up and I saw loads of British wrestling promotions and went from there

3. If you were to build a dream card, focusing solely on British talent, how would it look? 

Mark Haskins vs. Dave Rayne
El Ligero vs. Noam Dar
Project Ego ( Kris Travis and Martin Kirby) vs. Fight Club
Marty Scurll vs. Robbie X
Stixx vs. T-Bone
Kay Lee Ray vs. Britani Knight
The Predators vs. the Hunter Brothers

Just for a start.

4. What are your Top Three matches of all time and why?

British Bulldog vs Bret Hart SummerSlam '92 -  I was there and was and always will be a huge Davey Boy Smith fan and that day was one of the best ever the match had everyone on the edge of the seats with it going from Bret to Davey and back to Bret you didn't know who was going to win and everyone still talks about the match

Les Kellet Vs Leon Arras - This is one of the earliest matches I can remember watching on TV and laughing the whole time and loving Les from this moment on a real wrestler who was twice as hard outside the ring and Brian Glover playing a great role too

El Ligero vs Ego Dragon, Mask vs Mask 2012 - No Ropes in this one and a end to the 2 year feud in Southside Wrestling the place was packed and rightfully so they went everywhere and did everything in a wrestling ring I was drained when coming home after seeing what I just saw a real class match by two gents who are awesome in all matches
