Episode Details: Pro wrestler “The Kingpin” Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett did a podcast last year spotlighting one of New England pro wrestling’s founding fathers, “The Boston Bad Boy” Tony Rumble. This week, we’re doing it again, paying our respects to one of the area’s most influential men, Steve Bradley! Helping us do so are two of the guys who knew him best – “Firebrand” Brian Fury and “The Golden Greek” Alex Arion. We talk about Steve’s pre-teen wrestling promotion, his early days working New England indies, catching the eye of Jim Cornette, his entire WWF/WWE developmental run – from the Funkin Dojo to Memphis to Puerto Rico to HWA and OVW – and his release. Tons of stories, including Steve and Alex’s origin story, breaking in Kurt Angle, the birth of the Mofo, being forgotten on an island, pitching “The Murderer” gimmick, squashing Randy Orton, and how he started a riot in a soccer stadium!
Plus, this Promo About Nothing deserves an Oscar and we trade one Brian for another!
This Week’s Promo About Nothing
About The “Wrestling Podcast About Nothing”
There are so many Wrestling podcasts out there today. Everyone is doing something. We decided we need to be different, so we’re doing nothing. You read that right. If you love the world of pro wrestling and are looking for nothing to do, you’ve found the right podcast. The Wrestling Podcast About Nothing is a fun and most times funny journey into the world of professional wrestling hosted by a couple of guys who have dedicated their entire grown-up lives to trying to make it in the wrestling business.
Mike Crockett is a long-time independent wrestling referee, currently on an extended hiatus. Mike was introduced to this strange world when he discovered independent wrestling as a high schooler. Having performed all sorts of roles in addition to refereeing, Mike will be able to offer insight into the wrestling business that few others could.
“Kingpin” Brian Milonas has been performing all over the Northeast independents for well over a decade. The WPAN’s resident big man has shared the ring with some of the biggest names in the history of wrestling, including Vince McMahon and John Cena. Brian has also been a trainer, producer and booker in one of New England’s most well known wrestling promotions. Pulling no punches and sparing no feelings, The Kingpin will tell it like it is at all times.
