Loser Leaves Town Podcast 9/21/09 - Live at Lucha Va Voom w/ T.J. Perkins and Cassandro!

 

Recorded last night at Lucha Va Voom's successful New York debut, it's the Loser Leaves Town Podcast.

 

First I'm joined by T.J. Perkins (AKA Pinoy Boy/Puma/Cobra II, currently El Bombero in Lucha Va Voom) to discuss his travels around the world as a 25 year-old who's a 10 year veteran. Lots of great stuff about going to New Japan and the LA Dojo including wrestling in the Tokyo Dome, the MMA training that led to him actually having fights, becoming Cobra II while being tempted with promises of maybe eventually being Tiger Mask V, and much more.

 

After that is Cassandro, the top exotico in wrestling today. A 21 year veteran, he talks about his pre-wrestling career as a medical assistant, being trained by Rey Misterio Sr. in the class that included the original Psicosis/Nicho and a very young Rey Mysterio (Jr.), wrestling in Juarez and El Paso, being a gay man in the wrestling business in Mexico, how Antonio Peña helped him and others, his current travels around the world (including wrestling El Hijo del Santo at the Louvre Museum in Paris, France!), and more.

 

-------------------

 

More later when I do my writeup, but it was a tremendously fun show with 2 terrifying balcony dives in the main event.

I kinda regret not moving my ass and go see this. Not enough of a lucha fan I guess, but still. Plus the setting was totally awesome, I mean, El Hijo del Santo at the freaking Caroussel du Louvre (which is under the Louvre Museum).
