Pro Wrestling Opinion Exclusive – Q & A – John Cosper Discusses Tracy Smothers’ Autobiography “If You Don’t Buy This Book, Everybody Dies”

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

As someone who has been hired and fired from every major wrestling company, played many roles, held many championships, beat cancer and wrestled three different bears, Tracy Smothers has damn near done it all in the business.

Smothers grew up in Springfield, Tenn. and experienced everything from Mexico City fan riots to Malaysian bar fights. He survived the territories’ last days, broke through in Smoky Mountain Wrestling, served as a jobber in his World Wrestling Federation days and even had a hand in Extreme Championship Wrestling.

Pro Wrestling Opinion recently had the chance to talk to John Cosper of Eat Sleep Wrestle and co-author of Smothers’ 314-page autobiography “If You Don’t Buy This Book, Everybody Dies,” now available on Amazon.

Photo courtesy of Eat Sleep Wrestle.

Pro Wrestling Opinion – What would you say was yours and Tracy’s biggest goal with this autobiography?

John Cosper – The goal was to tell Tracy’s story in his own words. Tracy has so many amazing stories, from wrestling bears to working the territories to working for the “big three” during the Monday Night Wars. We wanted to get all the stories everyone has heard in print and we captured a lot of stories that have never been told. This book is going to be a treat for wrestling fans of all eras.

 

Pro Wrestling Opinion – What significance would you say this book serves the modern generation of wrestling fans?

John Cosper – Outside of Smoky Mountain Wrestling, Tracy was never the top guy, but he worked with everyone. He saw the big stars on their way up and many on the way back down. In recent times, he has had an incalculable impact on the modern independent scene. There are hundreds of young stars who call him “Pops” and hang on his every word. He watches every match and he gives positive, constructive feedback to anyone who will listen.

 

Pro Wrestling Opinion – Which would you say was the biggest challenge in telling a story of this magnitude?

John Cosper – That’s easy. We wrote this book while Tracy was battling cancer! There were nights we spent two hours on the phone while he was hopped up on medication and hooked up to chemo. There was one scary night when we hung up after five minutes and he had to be rushed to the hospital. Of all the fights Tracy has had, cancer was the worst. He’d rather wrestle 20 more bears than go through that again. It’s a miracle he survived and he will tell you working on the book gave him a reason to keep going every day.

 

Pro Wrestling Opinion – Did you have any other potential titles for the book or was it set from the beginning?

John Cosper – The title was my suggestion from the start, but we did hear and consider two others. Tim Denison is the guy who connected me to Tracy. He’s a good friend of Tracy’s who wrote one of the forewords for the book and he suggested the title “Tracy and the Three Bears.” Hy Zaya, who also wrote a foreword, suggested “G is for Jail ‘Cause a Thug Can’t Spell.”

 

Pro Wrestling Opinion – How does it stand out or differ from other pro wrestling autobiographies?

John Cosper – Every book is different because it gives you another angle on the wrestling business. The more vantage points we get, the better we can see the bigger picture. Tracy has worked with everyone and for everyone. He’s been hired and fired from every major company. He pulls no punches and more often than not, his stories are hilarious.

WrestlePOST – Pro Wrestling Under Your Thumb

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

 

Armed with a background of both marketing and 20 years of restaurant management experience, RJ had worked for the West Coast Wrestling Connection (WCWC) as a referee, ring announcer and interviewer for five years. One of his last projects with The WCWC was to create an app for them.

Once their weekly television show came off the air this past December, RJ had an opportunity to move on. He figured, “Why not create an app for everybody?”

“That is one of the main reasons I did it,” said RJ. “Any database out there that I have found is messy and out of date if you’re looking for pro wrestling promotions, so I wanted to bring those two things together.”

Thus, the WrestlePOST app was launched in March 2019 with the purpose of being a tool for fans, promotions and wrestling talent to find each other, buy and sell gear, merchandise and equipment, as well as post and find other wrestling-related services.

“In the time I spent in wrestling getting to know the performers, if there is a struggle, it’s [for] independent contractors to market themselves and try to promote themselves and get booked,” said RJ.

Dynamo Pro Wrestling and Gateway Harley-Davidson Present Bikes, Beer, and Body Slams

    Dynamo Pro Wrestling, in association with Gateway Harley-Davidson, are pleased to announce a series of professional wrestling events.

In a match already signed for this event, the brand-new Gateway Harley-Davidson champion, C.J. Shine, will make his first defense of the championship against the challenge of “The Snitch”.

Since winning the Gateway Harley-Davidson championship at our last “Bikes, Beer, and Body Slams” event, C.J. Shine has competed in many high-profile matchups. His challenger, The Snitch, has complained for over six hundred days that he has not received a chance at either the Dynamo Pro Wrestling D-1 or heavyweight championship. The current Dynamo Pro Wrestling RIOT on the River tournament champion, The Snitch outlasted all other competitors in a battle royal at the last “Beer, Bikes, and Body Slams” event to become the number-one contender for the Gateway Harley-Davidson championship. The next chapter in this long-standing rivalry will take place on Thursday, August 15th, 2019 at Gateway Harley-Davidson in St. Louis, Missouri.

WWE Extreme Rules 2019 Preview/Predictions

Photo courtesy of Wikipedia.

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

 

The main roster has been in a place of recovery in recent weeks after the announcement of both Paul Heyman and Eric Bischoff as Executive Directors of Raw and SmackDown respectively.

Although Bischoff is expected to begin his role after this event, it has been said that Heyman had his “fingerprints all over” Raw the last two weeks. The first week was complete with Corey Graves swearing on air, a stage explosion/pyro angle and logical storyline developments, a key aspect to Heyman’s creative skills.

This most recent Raw episode felt like more of the same filler we had previously, yet SmackDown was the better show, so who knows if Heyman had his way with the blue brand just prior to Bischoff’s beginning?

Extreme Rules is being looked forward to by many, only because it will mean the end of one era (hopefully the dreadful Wild Card) and the start of a more meaningful one. Enthusiasm is dead with the current main roster product and if anybody knows what to do to rejuvenate it, it might as well be Heyman and Bischoff at this point.

Let the games begin.

  • Kris Statlander has struggled to get back to her winning ways since losing the IWTV Championship back to Orange Cassidy in June. TONIGHT she addresses her future in Beyond Wrestling.
  • Since coming back to Beyond Wrestling Chuck O’Neil has spent the bulk of his time blindsiding and bullying people with impunity. But in recent weeks Wheeler YUTA has put a stop to this and has been the one man who seems to be able to block O’Neil’s technically precise and dangerous armbar. This week both of them will be in singles action taking on former Discovery Gauntlet entrants as O’Neil battles fan favorite “Big Bacon” Brad Hollister, while YUTA takes on the impressive DL Hurst.
  • Speaking of The Discovery Gauntlet, Christian Casanova is back for the fourth straight week. Will he be able to make it five, or will a new competitor enter the fray, pick up the win and move on?
  • Bear Country have been on a rampage since making their Beyond debuts back at Uncharted Territory, Episode Five. TONIGHT they face off against the debuting tandem of Jimmy Lloyd and KTB in a match that is sure to be a fight.

WWE Stomping Grounds 2019 Preview/Predictions

Photo courtesy of Wikipedia.

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

Stomping Grounds (Or Stomping Ground? We had to literally look at the poster to remind ourselves) comes at a time when main roster television has become uninspired at best. Is it just Lesser Super Showdown aka Less Than And Not Equal To WrestleMania?

It only made sense that last night, the WWE app accidentally let out a notification that the show was “about to begin,” clearly meant for tomorrow night. It was quite a “universal” problem (wink, wink).

We almost wanted it to happen yesterday, just so we can get it over and done with already.

The Wild Card rule continues to drag down Raw and SmackDown in quality and has made both shows feel the same. We have started to forget who is on which show now. What’s the point of a brand split then?

This probably has to do a little bit with SmackDown’s move to Fox in October. Maybe Creative has saved their best stuff for then, but it’s a chore these days to watch. Give us something. Anything.

Outside of the imaginatively hilarious and outlandish Bray Wyatt vignettes, the storylines have become immensely repetitive – Shane McMahon says stuff, Drew McIntyre is angry, Sami Zayn loses, Alexa Bliss is a disgruntled Starbucks customer, R-Truth loses the 24/7 Championship and wins it back (although not this week), Ricochet may or may not win his match and Baron Corbin is simply terrible.

You have not missed much outside of the aforementioned. Shame.

WWE NXT TakeOver: XXV Preview/Predictions

Photo courtesy of Deviantart.

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

All Elite Wrestling grasped the wrestling world after their first Pay-Per-View last week, topped off with a Five-Star Rhodes Brothers match, Awesome Kong, a tag team classic between The Young Bucks and Fenix/Pentagon Jr. and of course, Jon Moxley (the former Dean Ambrose of WWE fame) at the end.

Anybody who looked to WWE for an answer was left hopeless on Raw and SmackDown, side for a surprise mention by Sami Zayn on Raw.

The only true competitor with WWE’s name is its NXT brand, spearheaded creatively by Triple H. The 25th TakeOver event celebrates all that has happened before while also giving us another five-match standout card to feast on.

The essence of TakeOver is the heart of NXT itself – it’s where the up-and-comers showcase their true potential. Who knows where we would be if we didn’t get Zayn-Shinsuke Nakamura, Bayley-Sasha Banks, Johnny Gargano-Adam Cole and The Revival-#DIY, amongst other countless memorable bouts? It’s matches like those that have elevated NXT to the bar that has been set for wrestling expectations in 2019.

TakeOver has become more than a live event. It’s a movement. Beyond that, it has happened in America, United Kingdom, Canada and other places. It has brought NXT to the conversation of actual world domination.

Triple H’s formula to build stars, sign big names, focus on wrestling and characterization is one for success. It’s hard to believe there have been 25 TakeOvers, but we don’t think anybody will disagree that NXT can make 25,000 more TakeOvers for all we care.

WWE Money In The Bank 2019 Preview/Predictions

Photo courtesy of Wikipedia.

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

The poster of this event is a microcosm of the problems that plague the main roster – the illusion that two’s better than one.

In a panicked reaction to low ratings, Vince McMahon introduced (in a half-assed manner, mind you) the “Wild Card Rule,” where four superstars from Raw could appear on SmackDown and vice versa. McMahon messed up the promo to explain it and then managed to break his own made-up rule as five superstars from SmackDown appeared on that very Raw.

Since its forgettable introduction, it has actually made Raw and SmackDown feel like the same show, with Elias, Roman Reigns, Shane McMahon, The Miz and The Usos being most of the “Wild Cards.”

We’ll get into the bigger problems later, but Money In The Bank comes at a time when the main roster needs unpredictability and luckily, the briefcase holders can contribute a bit of that to their respective Title pictures.

*The Following Press Release Was Issued By IWTV*

 

In a relatively brief amount of time, the IWTV Independent Wrestling Championship has emerged as a unifying force on the indie wrestling scene. Though the championship has only been around for a year and a half, in that time it has been defended 37 times in 15 promotions, in 13 different states, against dozens of different opponents.

Three wrestlers have held the IWTV Independent Wrestling Championship:

  1. Jonathan Gresham: 126 Days, 7 Defenses
  2. Tracy Williams: 309 Days, 17 Defenses
  3. Orange Cassidy: Current Champion, 13 Defenses

All of them have been excellent representatives of independent wrestling and their combined efforts have served to make the IWTV Championship what it is today.

Recently IWTV debuted a new title design for the Independent Wrestling Championship. This new design honors and reflects the history of the championship, as promotions that have hosted championship defenses are featured on plates affixed to the title. New plates will continue to be added as defenses are made in new places, making the championship an evolving monument to its own history.

Makaze vs. Surge – The Final Chapter

Photo courtesy of Dynamo Pro Wrestling.

*The Following Press Release Was Sent By Dynamo Pro Wrestling*

 

APRIL 10TH, 2019

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Makaze vs. Surge – The Final Chapter

                Dynamo Pro Wrestling is proud to announce an all-ages professional wrestling event on Saturday, April 20th, 2019. This professional wrestling event, sponsored by Slackers and Aries Screen Printing, will be held at the Concordia Turners Gymnasium, located at 6432 Gravois Avenue in St. Louis, Missouri. Doors open at 7:00 P.M. with a bell time of 8:00 P.M. Adult tickets are $10 in advance and $15 the day of the event. Tickets for children from five to twelve years old are $5. Tickets for children under five years old are free. Advanced tickets can be purchased at dynamoprowrestling.bigcartel.com.

 

In the main event, the Dynamo Pro Wrestling heavyweight championship will be on the line as Dynamo Pro Wrestling heavyweight champion “The Wind of Destruction” Makaze will defend against former champion “Lights Out” Adrian Surge. For close to two years, these men have been intertwined in one of the fiercest rivalries in Dynamo Pro Wrestling history. On September 21st, 2018, Adrian Surge defeated Makaze to win the Dynamo Pro Wrestling heavyweight championship. After a vicious attack, organized by Makaze, Adrian Surge had to relinquish the championship and spent nearly five months on the sidelines with a shoulder injury.

 

Through manipulation and intimidation, on November 24th, 2018, Makaze regained the Dynamo Pro Wrestling heavyweight championship. Since regaining the Dynamo Pro Wrestling heavyweight championship, “The Wind of Destruction” Makaze has created a path of misery and destruction throughout Dynamo Pro Wrestling. At our last event at the Concordia Turners Gymnasium on March 30th, “Lights Out” Adrian Surge returned to Dynamo Pro Wrestling and demanded an opportunity to fight Makaze for the championship. Makaze agreed…but some severe provisions.  This match with be contested with no disqualification and the loser of the match must retire from professional wrestling.  Come out and experience the final chapter of this storied feud on Saturday, April 20th at the Concordia Turners Gymnasium.

 

Since 2007, Dynamo Pro Wrestling has strived to bring professional wrestling fans of all ages with hard hitting, fast paced, edge of your seat professional wrestling action.

WWE WrestleMania 35 Preview/Predictions

Photo courtesy of Wikipedia.

By Nicholas Jason Lopez

 

NXT TakeOver: New York (or TakeOver: Brooklyn V?) came, conquered and impressed everyone in all its glory.

300-pound Heavyweight Hanson performed a handspring back elbow and a top rope senton to the floor, Velveteen Dream was the GODDAMN STATUE OF LIBERTY and the main event between Johnny Gargano and Adam Cole delivered more wows than a summer blockbuster.

To be frank – WrestleMania will pale in comparison to its NXT counterpart and that’s to put it nicely, despite the fact that Mania will run more than twice the amount of time and contain more than three times as many matches.

Below are our predictions to shape Mania into a halfway decent show. If you’ve followed the Raw side (without falling asleep), the build has been abysmal while SmackDown has held themselves together better thanks to Kofi Kingston’s journey, but there are still some flaws here and there.

Let’s get to it.

WWE NXT Takeover: New York Preview/Predictions

It has become yearly tradition that NXT trumps the main roster and this time around on professional wrestling’s biggest weekend, it’s set to happen again.

Two nights before WrestleMania graces New Jersey’s MetLife Stadium, NXT “takes over” Brooklyn’s Barclays Center (yet again) and if history’s doomed to repeat itself (again), we’re in for a treat.

Compared to WrestleMania’s overbooked 15-match extravaganza, TakeOver’s refined to five simple bouts.

We’ll give our preview and predictions below.
