I had a chance to sit down 1 on 1 with star Oliver Grimsly. We touched on numerous different subjects ranging from his best and worst moments as a pro and also his upcoming 4 way fatal tag match with Fenix Fury against The Hell Cats, New Age Scumbags, and Mitch Miller and Paul White.
Q. In your wrestling career what has been your best moment so far?
A. Several moments are up there. My Rage TV title win, my first shamrock cup, the Super 8 and being on the first national pro wrestling day in a 4-way against 2 Cold Scorpio
Q. And in turn how bout your worst moment of your career?
A. Losing the Rage TV title.
Q. How was it like training with the Dudley Boys at there wrestling academy?
A. It was a great opportunity I wish to anyone looking to become a pro wrestler, the wealth of knowledge and technique you learn is 2nd to none.
Q. For the fans who don't know much about you describe your in-ring style on who you think you mimic?
A. Much like myself, my wrestling style is like none other. If you expect the unexpected you would still be surprised.
Q. How did you come up with the character that you portray in MCW?
A. Character???? Oliver Grimsly is what Oliver Grimsly is!!!! I owe a lot to Sinn Bodhi (formerly WWE's Kizarny)
Q. Your coming home to Waldorf on May 3 how will it feel to get in the ring in your hometown?
A. Everything comes full circle. The town I left to chase my dreams and expand my horizons becomes the town I come to in order to chase my dreams and expand my horizons.
Q. You do have a fatal 4 way at bodyslam autism how are you and Fenix going to combat 3 other teams. And your also way smaller team then the others what edge do you think you'll have over the other teams?
A. Neither Fenix or myself are any stranger to being the smallest freaks in the fight, it's just par for the course at this point. In this 4 way, the talent is stacked. No one is to be overlooked, everyone in this match should be considered an odds on favorite. However, between our speed and unorthodox offense, none of the other teams can prepare for when the freaks are unleashed.
I recently had the chance to sit down with the lovely Amber Rodriguez and talked alittle about her background and also tried to get her comments on her recent turn of Gfed and Buck Chyld and what her future holds inside the ring and with the Black Wall Street.

During Autism Awareness Month 2014, Maryland Championship Wrestling, Jimmy Cicero & Sean Waltman (Formerly X-Pac) Come Together to Body Slam Autism.
Autism is a developmental disorder that affects an estimated 1.5 Million individuals in the United States and tens of Millions worldwide. Today, it is estimated that one in every 88 Children and One in Fifty Four boys are diagnosed with Autism.
Matt Bowman who performed as a Professional Wrestler under the stage name "The Wiseguy" Jimmy Cicero for over two decades now uses his notoriety to bring awareness to Autism. In Early 2009 when Bowman and his Wife Windra learned that their young son was autistic, he returned to the ring for the sole Purpose of promoting Autism Awareness. Bowman's Mission became even more important to his family when his second son was also diagnosed with Autism.
"Autism is the fastest-growing serious developmental disability in the United States," says Matt Bowman, Husband and Father of two autistic sons ages 4 & 6. "Boys are nearly five times more likely than girls to have autism."
Co Owner of MCW Dan McDevitt is a long time friend of Matt Bowman and on April 25th, they will team up with Sean Waltman to Body Slam Autism. "I am ecstatic to be a part of this event and to be assisting Matt in his efforts to raise money for Autism Awareness, "says McDevitt.
"For me, raising Autism Awareness achieves victory on two different fronts. It allows me the opportunity to encourage families who suspect that a loved one may potentially be on the autism spectrum to seek an early diagnosis which in turn can lead to early intervention. I also am able to build bridges within the special needs community. The daily challenges that families with autism face are monumental, for me to be able to share information and provide support is absolutely invaluable." Bowman Said.
