I've got a few connections...

I worked as a ring announcer for the United Independent Wrestling Alliance (the company that started current ROH Champion, Samoa Joe) and Millenium Pro Wrestling.

I was a production head for Ultimate Pro Wrestling, which is where I met most of the "big names". I spent every show right behind the entrance, next to current TNA star Christopher Daniels, every month. (Daniels ran the gorilla position for UPW when I was there). During that run, I was with John Cena & Victoria when they started out.

This past January, I ring announced on a tour of military bases. On the trip was Virgil/Vincent/Curly Bill/Shane & Disco Inferno/Glenn Gilberti.

It was fun, but I'm mostly out of the whole business nowadays.

I sincerely hope that your finisher is called something along the lines of "Extreme Vowel Abuse". I think that would make my day.

Nothing doing here. I'd love to be a ref or a ring announcer, and I think I'd have some good ideas should I get in creative. But, alas, I'd have be the mickey Jay type of referee (fat).

If we are to count backyard wrestling, I'm a three year veteran! Of course, I've only won one match in that entire span of time due to agreeing to put people over too much. But as long as the match was entertaining it doesn't bother me any. I've also been a ref once and work in our announce booth for every show.

Yeah, I do the occasional summer show in the Central/South Fl. indies. Nothing big, nowhere NEAR famous, just basically putting that year of training at the Malenko School to occasional use. My style isn't that popular here though (Japanese Strong Style/ MUGA) with the emphasis on submissions and heavy use of ring psychology. It's fun to get in the ring once in a while though, meet the occasional big name that shows up and introduce them to my favorite bars in the area (In most cases they already know the place and hook me and my boys up with a round of the usual!).

Oh yeah, that'd be my role, if I was in wrestling. But no money and career aspirations that don't quite lend themselves to that... but who knows what'll happen. Might actually get into it.

I volunteered to help disassemble a ring one day at a local state fair, and got $20.00 for it. It also allowed me the chance to hold the wardrobe for a wrestler who used to be on raw and made it to a PPV.

That's correct, I held his crown while King Queasy wrestled.

I helped take down the ring, at a few indy shows around here, nothing major and I never got money, but I did get to roll around the ring for a bit and got to meet some wrestlers the most famous being wrestling legend Kurgan.

I never did go back after getting my MFA.

Sadly canadianchick (The W) likely didn't qualify for this thread when it was posted, and has since gone on to bigger and better things as Nicole Matthews (or so I have been told in other threads).

Hey, to all those who are workers, in some semblance, what do you use as a finish?

I kinda did this weird Crucifix Dominator.

MUGA-style workers don't really have a single "finisher", just two or three signature moves. In my case, a mean German Suplex, the "Cherry Popper" (modified belly-to-belly suplex into a head and arm choke hold... named because of the squeal/scream the victim lets out)and a Deathlock STF.

Obviously my fave is to use the Cherry Popper just because it's fun to shout "You just got your cherry popped, BITCH!" in front of a crowd of 50 or 60 drunks! ;-)

If I ever get tired of making enough to pay the bills and drop the day job to pursue this full time, I'd DEFINITELY take the show to Japan. It would be a dream come true to work a match with Osamu Nishimura and just get all pure technical for a half hour or so!

Huzzah! Somebody must've clicked the link in the .sig file! :-)

Yep, I'm technical director for ACW-NWA WI (that's the link waaaaaaayyyyyyy down there) Home Video and TV (when we were on). In addition, I've shot video for MPW, AAW, NAWF, some other fed whose name escapes me, and I've covered WWF and WCW house shows in the past for my local TV station.

I've also even a couple of accidental bumps I've taken put on home video (getting hit with a pool cue during a "Sicilian Death Match"...earned some respect for the locker room for having the presence of mind to sell it and not therefore poop on the match), and one even televised. (Got the GREEN MIST OF DOOM from a Satanic masked wrestler, thrown face-first into locker, dumped upside-down into laundry cart, and wheeled length of locker room into more lockers. Actually my idea...d'oh!)

It's an addictive, destructive business...but {General Patton} my God, I do love it so. {/General Patton}
