and also that The Barbarian is the nicest fucking guy in the world. I learned that too!!
I loved Barb when we worked together. I haven't seen him in nearly 15 years, but I hope he's keeping well. He was always one of these guys who came with a 'fight people and wreck the hotel room' reputation, but he couldn't have been nicer to me. Top man.
Also, the Bobby Fulton match you described sounds like my match in 2006 with Tracy Smothers. I think in the end we went just over 50 minutes. Of that 50 minutes, approximately 7-8 minutes was wrestling. It was a real chore to watch back on tape afterwards, but the live crowd absolutely ate it up on the night.
Did you love working matches with me in various gym's around the Midlands area in the late 90s?
