Emmanuel Kirkland Interview:
Eddie Edison: Hello there wrestling fans, Fast Eddie here with an up and coming superstar, Im pleased to be joined by Emmanuel Kirkland!!
EK: Thanks for having me Eddie!!
EE: Well first youre upbringing in Africa, how does it feel to return to your country an established wrestling star?
EK: Its cliche to say but never in my wildest dreams, I thought I could make it here. I remember attending Sengalese wrestling matches as a boy and I used to imagine myself being there. I remember training under some of the local coaches there. Its how I developed my techniques and my way of wrestling.
EE: Its a long way from Senegal to New Jersey, how were you found by JJB?
EK: In my country American and Japanese wrestling were very hard to find. I used to sell cigarettes in the city to make enough money to buy tapes of ZIP Japan, GORE Japan, and The Senetorial. From there I was hooked. I self taught myself some pro wrestling techniques and combined it with my Sengelese wrestling techniques. I then sent some tapes over to a promoter in my town and I wrestled for MMW (Mansa Musa Wrestling in Egypt). Somehow JJB found a match of mine on the internet and went to Egypt to personally recruit me to AAW. He discussed the potential he saw in me and how he can hone that and turn me into a superstar.
I think he has succeeded so far. My win-loss record might not be the best, but each match I learn more and more.
EE: The ultra violent style of AAW seems to be an odd pairing for your background dont you think?
EK: I have to disagree, AAW allows me to be free, I am allowed to do whatever I want, I have no rukes or restrictions in terms of a stylw. I truly feel like Im in a fight everytime I step into the ring. Ive fought many different styles and Im greatful the fans love me. AAW has been a Godsend for me, I met my girlfriend here. Liz [Hatcher] is great and has been trying to teach me more about the American style of wrestling.
EE: Do you feel that youve lived up to your potential so far?
EK: No...I dont feel like Ive shown and given my best. Im honestly disappointed by my later efforts where I give my opponent a tough match but I still lose anyway. I want to be AAW World Champion one day and I want to show the world that I can carry a company on my shoulders.
EE: That call for the Pan African Tour had to be the best day of your life. How did receiving that call feel?
EK: It was the happiest day of my life! My God, Ive been so blessed this year. I never thought that Mr.Phillips would give me the call to go on tour.
EE: Any matches youre looking forward to?
EK: Theres one match Ive circled on my calendar and thats against Thunder Fist. Hes built up a reputation as being unbeatable and unstoppable, I want to show hes just a man. And I know my style can give him a lot of trouble. I hope Fist knows I wont roll over and die. Im gonna give him the toughest match of his career and he will respect me when Im done.
EE: Thank you for your time Emmanuel good luck on the tour.
EK: Thank you and I will return and Reggie [Griggs]

The Philadelphia Extreme Wrestling Alliance and the Senatorial Office are pleased to present the upcoming event:
---PEWA: Horror of Hardcore---
Horror of Hardcore will be a one-night event held sometime in late October, around Halloween time, exact date to be determined.
All matches will be held in some sort of deathmatch format, including the infamous PEWA Insaniarium cage, and will feature both PEWA talent and outsiders deemed appropriate.
So, who's appropriate, you ask? Good question. Horror themed hardcore edits are welcomed. Hardcore edits with a horror themed attire will also be welcomed. Talent old and new are good, no general restrictions other than the usual 200 point limitation and admonition to lean more towards edits that put on enjoyable matches as opposed to trying to win flat out.
Announced matches thus far:
Main Event - Hellfire Explosion Match - PEWA Extreme Title Bout Downtown Lucy Brown(C) vs. Jack Fury
Master of the Arcane Challenge Sir Vladimir Henry (with Heidi Karnstein) vs. ???
Victims or Villians? El Verde(El Evergringo and Eternamente Verde)(Phoenix Rising) vs. ??? and ???
Sir Vladimir's Challenge
As the scene fades in, English noble Sir Vladmir Henry can be seen in a dark, smoke filled room, a wooden table in front of his high backed, ornate chair. At his side, the scantily dressed Heidi Karnstein dons a black robe that hardly covers her curves. An ancient tome sits on the table, which Sir Vladimir peruses.
Heidi Karnstein: You have always said this is what you wanted. This is the reason for this all. And now it is happening. Now you must finish what you have started.
Sir Vladimir Henry: For decades, I have risen up on the dark side of civilization. I have manipulated the otherworldly forces that control society and I have tasted of the power of the occult. Many have tried to put an end to my pursuits, including the odious Victor Van Banning, but none have succeeded.
Heidi: I have told Vladimir that while he has traveled the far corners of the world, and has discovered the depths of what lies beneath, he has never been able to find what he has searched for.
Vladimir: What Heidi has recommended is that while I have sought to be the preeminent master of the arcane, that to do so, I must cease trying to seek out those who stand between me and my desires. Instead, now I call out to those who believe themselves masters of the occult, to those who think they are the alpha predators of the unseen realms, I summon only the strongest, most ruthless, most debased to answer my call.
Heidi: And when a, no, the worthy one answers, Sir Vladimir will eviscerate you for the whole world to see that no matter how dark the places your travels have led you, nobody is more ruthless, more cunning, more willing than Sir Vladimir is!
I don't think I have any edits that fit the bill but I'll certainly keep an eye on this one :)
Also the Pan African stuff was really great and exposed me to a whole bunch of edits that I'd not seen before and tbh I was a big fan of them. Thanks too for booking George really well IMO, he may not have picked up many wins but he was made to look strong non the less which I appreciate very much.
