There seems to be a lot of Earthquakes around the world, and ever since I arrived here in 2011 people have been saying that we’re due for the big one. I’ve gone through a few reasonably minor ones and they’re not fun but compared to the hurricanes and tornadoes that the southern states go through I’ll stick with California any day. Here’s another excerpt from my book ‘Hollywood or Bust’.
2007 was an eventful year with WWE naming me as the possible head of the 'to be formed' WWE Europe. They decided not to make the extension in the end but a LOT of stuff happened that I've covered in my biography "Do or do not". Here's a segment featuring some names that are now household, and the video shows two of the best in action at a 1PW afternoon show at The King of Europe Cup.
My adventures at RAF Cosford in early 1970 continue with anoither excerpt from my biography 'Do or do not". 404 entry were a smaller group, and seemed to be a lot more amicable which suited me as 217 had a few unsavoury characters. Military life is designed to be uncomfortable in order to mould you in the image they want you to be, and that includes marching you up and down a parade ground many hours a week, insisting that your boots and brasses are shiny, uniform razor sharply pressed and your hair short and neat with NO whiskers showing through. At least once a week you’d be on your hands and knees scrubbing the bathroom, corridors and polishing the wooden floors of the billet. Every morning you had to make your bedding into a specific exhibition that the billet corporal would inspect, and you would be personally checked on parade by Sgt Geraghty who enjoyed such little comments as “Did you use a mirror when you shaved this morning lad?”, “Yes Sergeant”, “Well next time use a razor it’s sharper”, and the classic from behind “Is your hair hurting you Davies?” “No sergeant”, “Well it should be I’m bloody standing on it”. Being honest these guys were chicken feed compared to the US Boot Camp Drill Sergeants, but my 16 year old mind didn’t enjoy it so much as I wanted to concentrate on the subjects.
I had decided from a very early age that I wanted to join the Royal Air Force, and from the age of 13 I served with 30F squadron of the Air Training Corps in Ely, Cardiff (my home town). While my parents were away on summer holiday in 1969 I signed up and left school at Christmas that year. Here's a segment about the first days from my biography "Do or do not".
January 12th 2007 was incredibly memorable as Real Quality Wrestling hosted The Great Muta's European Debut at York Hall in London. Here's the story as covered in my biography "Do or do not!"
As I settled into Los Angeles life the daily diary started filling up. here are a couple of excerpts from my book "Hollywood or bust".
A couple of years ago I was very blessed to have my first book released. It was a collection of my daily blogs from 2011 and 2012 when I arrived in Los Angeles to pursue my dreams. Here's how it all began.
Following Donald Trumps Presidential win in 2016, a friend created a series where the US would no longer be a part of the G7 as it was felt he would alienate too many other countries. This was pre-produced and planned as a pilot (sales tool) to be shown in Cannes in the hopes of a series being greenlit. The creator, Sacha Puysségur, asked me to set up a shoot to bring his creation to life. He sent me the initial outlines which we turned into a script, and we had 4 days of pre-production as he only had two weeks before his trip to Cannes. I am truly blessed to know some very talented actors and we set up a day to film everything. The key to maximizing such a shoot is to not have too much distance between locations, and this was achieved by only using one, a large house in the hills around LA that provided all of the separate locations with the minimum of change. While one scene was being shot, the next was being set up. While we were filming the leaders meeting and the equipment scene, the actors were staging and rehearsing their fights ready to go. Kevin Indio Copeland, (Dwight Campbell) who played in the equipment scene opposite Francis Chen, had been in hospital after an accident that left him with an injured back, but he checked himself out of hospital just to be at the shoot, but naturally he was in no fit state to do the action scenes as was intended, but there was no way I was leaving him out.
