FSW’s ‘Suntan Superman’ on the dynamics of indy wrestling, the ‘depressing’ politics of the pro wrestling business and his prediction for the winner of ‘Batman vs. Superman’

Fighting Spirit Wrestling's "Suntan Superman"

Fighting Spirit Wrestling’s “Suntan Superman”

By Randy Jean

‘Suntan Superman.’  It’s a catchy name, but the man behind it, a former Fighting Spirit Wresting (FSW) Primero Champion, is far more intriguing when you take 30 minutes to sit down and speak with him.

Being a competitive pro wrestler for the better part of a decade has not only allowed him to master his craft, but also heightened his awareness of what is going on around him in the business he has chosen to making his living in.

From being a fan of The Golden Era of wrestling to being a trailblazer in the independent circuit, Suntan isn’t afraid to chase a childhood dream.

Two days removed from the FSW: “Men of Mayhem” live event, which streamed live on GFL.tv, Suntan addressed the state of pro wrestling today, the idea behind “Omega Black,” the role Santa clause played in creating his ring name and his thoughts on next year’s highly-anticipated silver screen release, ‘Batman vs. Superman.’

Randy Jean: Judging by the amount of excitement you bring into the ring day in and day out, I take it wrestling has always been a passion of yours?

Suntan Superman: Wrestling was always a passion of mine. Specifically, I’ll say it actually started when I was at the age of 14. Now this was basically towards the end of the Golden Age era in the WWF (WWE at the time). I also loved the Lucha Libre style that they were showing on TV, which I would always try to emulate at the parks growing up.

RJ: They actually have that new promotion going on called Lucha Underground, have you checked it out?

SS: Yeah man, it’s actually a pretty cool format. It’s actually nice that they getting that sort of platform. It still needs a little more though. Give it a couple more years to grow.

RJ: Wrestling is art within itself. Would fans benefit from it more if there were different genres of it? For example, could ROH (Ring of Honor) or even GFW (Global Force Wrestling) change the game if they were to capture the same level of mainstream attention as WWE?

SS: All depends on who’s willing to shell out the most dough. If you notice, WWE has now decided to cater to the independent crowd, while still doing things their way.

But you’re right. There are promotions out there that can use the limelight, which can benefit from being seen. What we do is an art and a lot of people tend to forget this, but it’s an art because it’s mainly subjective. There’s a definite skill set that’s needed to do what we do. You have a lot of ‘smarks,’ or smart marks, whatever you want to call them, who forget that this is an art that requires skill.

RJ: We actually should give props to WWE for adding more emphasis on that “Indy style” of wrestling.

Take NXT for example. It’s a WWE brand but it’s basically a different entity in itself that fans aren’t used to seeing from that the WWE. It’s great that they’re allowing their younger fanbase to ease themselves into that style of wrestling.  Do you agree?

SS: No. Look, that is true. I watched it the other day on the WWE Network. All the lights and special effects it has are exhilarating. I was glued to the screen. It was so beautiful.

But I’m telling you, if they could have put that on the main roster, they wouldn’t have needed that. I don’t know if you remember this company, but TNA (Total Nonstop Action) had this concept called the ‘X Division,’ which almost rivaled ‘The Attitude Era.’

What they did was basically keep that concept of X and package it into an exclusive brand of it’s own. There’s so much more to the art that’s out there. I met this guy by the name of Mike Quackenbush who clued me in on various styles of wrestling and the technique. He basically told me there’s a lot more to be seen behind the WWE style thanmeets the eye.

It’s more tragedy and triumph that caters a lot to the old American principals. My teacher Joel Maximo came up with a style that I’ve yet been able to see (elsewhere) today. If you watch the old ROH material with the S.A.T/Maximo brothers, watch their style and go back to wrestling today. You’ll notice theirs is being utilized, or emulating WWE and mainstream television, which I love.

But in terms of business practices, what you clearly see is this move to intentionally trump any sort of competition. In other words, you’re going to make very hard for any other brand to potentially come up.

RJ: Within the promotions is there a lot of back stabbing going on? In a sense, are there people trying to be the top dog in the expense of others?

SS: In our business, the word ‘entertainment’ is sort of a taboo word you can say to a fellow wrestler. Essentially that’s all you’re going to be when there’s a lot of entertainers. You’re going to meet them in every corner. But when you’re trying to get ahead, there are certain principals you need to exhibit before you move up within any position in the business.

The Maximo brothers and Amazing Red – one of the main reasons why they didn’t make it to the Hall of Fame position like the Rock ‘n’ Roll Express was because their work ethic out shined the other guys on the roster, which they built up.

What these guys didn’t know was that you don’t want to do that in this business. When you have these old timers guys putting all of this light and shine on their people, you don’t want to become this phenomena unless you’re given the green light, and that’s just one (of the) depressing parts I’ve noticed about this business.

Imagine this, you come in wanting to be a wrestler. So you come in, train and work your ass off, and manage to out shine the other wrestlers. The promoter will do anything in his power to cut you down. This is just the old way of doing things. If you go into the WWE locker room and do more than what their guys are doing, they’ll just shut you down.

RJ: You’re right, some of the Indy wrestlers who come into the WWE like Daniel Bryan and the CM Punks of the world, come in with a huge fan base and once they start to get elevated the promoters retaliate by saying no, you come up when I say so.

SS: Exactly! I take it you watch a lot of the American Dragon, or Daniel Bryan as they call him now. His style is completely different to what it was in the Indies years ago. He’s clearly one of the best technical wrestlers who’s ever came up to the game. If you watch him now, you realize it’s a more watered down version in order to cater to the mainstream fans.

RJ: All right, let’s talk about the “Omega Black”. It was a stable with the names Greg Jones, Dashing D. Weatherford and Suntan Superman attached to it. Who created the group?

SS: “Omega Black” was the brainchild of Greg Jones and Joel Maximo.  I wasn’t an original member there were four other individuals and I just came in to try to help them. They basically getting their asses handed to them almost every night.

That’s when I told Joel that he has got to put me in there and instead of being security for them; I basically became an enforcer and then eventually got into the ring. I love a good rumble and getting hit. I enjoy(expletive) like that. Sorry, excuse my French, ha-ha.

RJ: It tells a better story when you project it that way.

SS: Yeah, you’re right. I came in there to join the group thinking I was going to be some kind of equalizer but you know Greg he’s always got his head up his ass and I figured I should probably let it go and get the hell out of there.

They feel a certain type of way and I’m out there trying to have a real good fight. This is pro wrestling, not a beauty pageant contest. Just give me a fight. Put me in a corner with somebody and have them put their dukes up and lets rumble. That’s my thing.

RJ: Speaking of rumbles, what were your thoughts heading into the two on one Rumble in the Bronx match against your former comrades?

SS: Basically to sum it up, I wanted to kick their asses. I hopped on that bull and rode it. I punched and chopped all throughout the match. I did a lot of heaving and hoeing.

You got that little manager in Weatherford whose got all these bumps in bruises for always getting in the way a lot and you would think he’d learn his lesson by now, but nope so I had to let him know.

RJ: I’m sure fans are dying to know if we’ll ever see a rematch between you and Magma for the FSW Primero Championship?

SS: You see what I did rubbed Greg and Dashing the wrong way so they cost me the title. I really have no beef towards Magma, but I would love to get my chance against him again.

Unfortunately right now I can only focus on one thing right now, but I’m sure we’ll meet up again. He knows who I am; he’s felt the power before. I put the boots to him a couple times.  So he knows whom the real meat and potatoes really is, I’m not worried.

RJ: So where did the name Suntan Superman come from? Did you come up with it?

SS: In 2002-03 I was at this bar called Santa’s Pub near Nashville, Tennessee, where they were filming TNA for their weekly PPV. After that show a bunch of the guys went to this bar, which was owned by this guy who was skinny but had this beard like Santa.

There was this wrestler name K-Quick (R-truth in WWE) and a bunch of other wrestlers who were coming in and out. So K-Quick and I got drunk and we were trying to mack on the bar tender. I was telling her how I was known as the son of Superman and so we were standing in the middle of the bar floor and the bar tender was trying to call Santa but instead yelled out “Suntan, Suntan” mind you she was a little drunk because we bought her a couple shots.

So I go up and told her I like that name and K-Quick was next to me and said he was going to also use that name in his song. I was always known as the son of superman because I am a big time mark for Superman; I love the guy’s philosophy and work. Suntan was basically created at a bar and on top of that, it’s a name that can easily roll of your tongue.

RJ: ‘Batman vs. Superman’ comes out next summer in theaters. Who’s going to win?

SS: I’m telling you Batman is the braniac in the DC universe. If there’s a rock, Batman will find it and put Superman down.

I got my money on Batman. I know Batman has all those gadgets and such, but it’s proven that Superman isn’t invincible. Both Braniac and Doomsday have proved it. Batman is one up against these guys. The movie will be an awesome picture, but I have to put my money on Batman.

Philadelphia (May 27,2015)–This Friday night at the Stadium Holiday
Inn in Philadelphia, King’s Promotions presents a great night of championship boxing that will headlined by 10-round UBF Lightweight championship bout between Frankie De Alba (15-1-2, 5 KO’s) and Bernardo Gomez Uribe (14-3, 10 KO’s).

Chambers, who came originally to Philadelphia with former Heavyweight title challenger, “Fast” Eddie Chambers, fought 23 times and the famed Blue Horizon in Philadelphia and will be making his first start in the City of Brotherly Love in almost 6 years.

“I have been training hard and working on opening my new gym with (Lightweight contender) Rod Salka,” said Upsher.

“It showed that I can compete against that level of fighter. Plus everyone of those guys was bigger than me. I am a natural 140 pounder and can make 135 if the right opportunity presented itself.”

Chambers went back to his native Pittsburgh to train in neighboring city Coal Center, PA.

“My mind is set on winning a world title at 140 pounds. After the three losses, I cant afford any missteps. People see about the losses. I know I have the ability to be a world champion and on May 29 that will start to show.”

On the veteran opponent, Rodriguez, Upsher said, “I know he is tough and from Mexico. I will look at a little film before the fight and go from there. I really don’t worry about what he will do. He should worry about me. This fight is redemption for me. It’s a start and then I would like to right all of the losses. But first I am looking for a dominant performance on Friday then I want to end all doubts.”

Atlantic City, NJ (May 20,2015)–This Friday night,May 22, boxing returns to the Claridge in Atlantic City with a full 9-bout card promoted by King’s Promotions in association with DeeLee Promotions.

Welterweight Bryant Perella will take part in his first eight-round bout when he takes on tough German Perez.

Perella, 26 years-old of Lehigh Acres, Florida has a record of 8-0 with seven knockouts and has stopped five straight.

He already has quality victories over Benito Tovar (3-0-1), which was a first-round stoppage and his last bout when he stopped Justin Johnson in four rounds on February 20.

“Everything is good. I am going to make weight and take care of business,”said Perella when contacted on Tuesday.

“I know Perez is tough. He is 11-1 and from Mexico. I have not seen video on him but I am preparing for a rough fight. I know a lot of guys Tijuana come forward and are aggressive.”

Former WWE superstar John Morrison aka “Johnny Mundo” headlined NWA Smoky Mountain Wrestling: “Collision Course”

By Randy Jean

May 9, 2015 was a spectacle to say the least. That is, if you are a wrestling fan.

NWA Smoky Mountain presented Collision Course 10, from Kingsport, Tennessee’s civic center.  The event is available for purchase as an iPPV on Go Fight Live (GFL).

What looked to be a packed crowd, all seemed to be waiting anxiously as Bruce Tarpe came out to address them. Fans were then introduced to the induction of Rob and Don Wright into the NWA Hall of Fame. The two brothers dominated the promotion as a tag team tangent in the early to late 70’s.

The first match on the card presented members of “The Agency” in Galvin Daring, Jordan Kage and Shawn Shultz vs. The newcomer in Skylar Kruze, Wayne Adkins and Axton Ray. There was some great back and forth action coming from both sides with an impressive showing from Skylar Kruze.

NWA original Adkins, for sure, had his hands tied with Kage, who proved to be an overwhelming opponent for the opposing trio. Eventually, The Agency pulled away with the win, as the referee mistakenly thought the chain used by Daring to gain an advantage, came from Kruze.

Nick Hammon won the vacant Mountain Empire Heavyweight Championship, in an impressive fatal 4-way match with EZ Money, Timmy Lou Retton and Jeff Connelly. From the fans’ reaction towards Connelly to the array of talent in each corner, this match was quite special and, in the end, Hammond came out victorious and received a standing ovation from the crowd.

We next found ourselves watching Rob Conway and Bruce Tarpe entering the ring and totally disrespecting the accomplishments of Jax Dane. After Conway aired out his disdain of Dane, the latter competitor demanded an apology from him.

Unfortunately, Dane’s hot headed temper backfired, as he hurt his shoulder while attempting to spear Conway.  It’s then that we found out that, under Conway’s ring attire, were metal plates attached to his chest.

It was an overwhelming matchup for Dane, as Tarpe interfered to protect his meal ticket. After Dane warded Tarpe off, he only found himself in more hot water as he had to defend himself against KAOS.

After fighting his way through, Dane found himself with the advantage as he almost decapitated Conway with a clothesline. Unfortunately, as Dane turned around to spear Conway, Conway managed to avoid it and knocked Tarpe out.

Conway screamed for help as the locker room emptied out to carry the president away.  The interference ended up proving to be too much for Dane to handle. It’s going to be interesting to see how Tarpe responds to the situation he was placed in by Dane.

Next up, Vince Brent took on Chris Richards, with a number one contender spot at stake for the NWA Southeastern Heavyweight championship. Brent, although demoralized by Richards’s brute like offense, ended up coming out with the win.

IWGP World Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles proved to the world that, at the age of 37, he has no ring rust, making one wonder why TNA ever got rid of him.   Although he came up short, Chase Owen is a superstar that should not be overlooked.

In the main event, NWA Southeastern World Heavyweight Champion Jason Kincaid took on former WWE intercontinental champion John Morrison. All I have to say is WOW.  This match had a sort of cruiserweight-like feel to it as both opponents showed that they weren’t afraid of heights – literally.  Although Morrison came up short, he showed that he’s a different type of competitor from the one who used to reside in WWE.

Not only have Morrison’s parkour-like moves improved, his knack for feeling the crowd didn’t go unnoticed. As for Kincaid, he will be a force to reckon with in the future. His tenure as longest running champion in history (1,200 days) cannot be ignored.

Collision Course 10, without a doubt, lived up to the hype. With the wrestling industry in desperate need of a change, I’m interested to see how NWA will continue to shake things up.
