Our CHIKARA week continues here on the blog, ahead of CHIKARA’s Aniversario UK Tour at the end of May, as we spoke to former CHIKARA Grand Champion Icarus. Find him on Twitter at @IcarusWRW
What first got you into watching pro wrestling?
Watching wrestling as a kid was what first drew me in. I was a fan of tag teams guys like The Rockers, The Hart Foundation, Demolition and Legion of Doom. The vibrancy and the energy of professional wrestling is unlike any other experience.
Who was your favourite wrestler when you were a kid?
What made you want to be a pro wrestler?
Who was your trainer?
Who has been your favourite opponent so far?
Who has been the biggest influence on your career?
Who would be your dream opponent to meet in the ring?
What is your finishing move?
What do you think of the current state of pro wrestling?
You were previously CHIKARA Grand Champion, how proud were you of that?
What are your ambitions in CHIKARA for 2016?
If you could pick your own King Of Trios team for this year, who would you pick as your partners?
Heidi Lovelace was an amazing partner. A tenacious little firecracker with the heart and desire that pushes everyone she’s around to be the better version of themselves. So teaming with her would make me better and I like when I’m better. Dasher Hatfield’s ability and integrity make him a great leader as well. I dig his accent too.
What does wrestling mean to you?
What should someone who has never seen a Icarus match expect?
SOMEONE STOP THE DAMN MATCH!!
