PRO WRESTLER SLYK WAGNER BROWN

Q&A SESSION WITH "THE UNDERGROUND KING" SLYK WAGNER BROWN

We are here today with Boston native and disciple of one of the wrestling worlds greats, Killer Kowalski, welcome The next big thing "The Underground King" Slyk Wagner Brown. Thank you for taking time out of your busy schedule to do this Q &A with us Slyk, We don't want to keep you any longer than we have to so lets get this underway.

Louis Velazquez: Slyk what drew you into wanting to become a pro wrestler?

SWB: I started watching it when I was 10 and was hooked ever since.

Louis Velazquez: That's usually how it starts, but not everyone gets to realize that dream.
How was it the first time that you stepped into the ring?

SWB: It felt like a dream come true.

Louis Velazquez: It must've felt like a calling.
So who came up with your gimmick?

SWB: Tre "The Smooth Operatin' Gangsta" (Kowalski student)

Louis Velazquez: Kowalski has developed some great talent over the years, his star pupils are Triple H And Chyna, if that's any indication then I have to say that you are Star Bound.
Now was that the first gimmick that you used or were there others?

SWB: I've been using that gimmick for the past 6 years.

Louis Velazquez: Thats a positive thing it allows you to continue to get your name out there.
What else do you do beyond wrestling?, what are your hobbies?

SWB: I'm currently studying computers. My hobbies include homework and whoopin' a$$ in Madden 2004!

Louis Velazquez: Come on, you're not playing Smack Down.... , well its a good stress reliever.
Slyk do you see yourself eventually making it to the corporate structure of the wrestling world, namely the WWE? Or are you content where you are now?


SWB: I would love the opportunity to wrestle for the WWE. I appreciate the opportunities I've been given so far, but I'm still hungry.

Louis Velazquez: Ah, key word HUNGRY, its funny in this business how people get content really quickly, but its good that you are striving for me, then you can fail.
Most people that get involved with wrestling have other aspirations, do you see yourself going into acting in the future?

SWB: Yeah, I hope so. Thanks to The Rock, acting has become a better option for more pro wrestlers today.

Louis Velazquez: Most definitely, Hollywood is wide open, you just need to go for it.


Slyk I need to ask your opinion on this, over the years wrestling has changed a lot, the envelope is constantly being pushed which is forcing today's workers to perform more extreme moves, this holds true for both the small Indies and the corporate structured promotion, what are your feelings on this?

SWB: I feel this is a problem and could become a major one in the future. Most wrestlers with 1-3 years experience are willing to kill themselves rather than going to wrestling school and learning how to wrestle.

Louis Velazquez: I think that's because they are trying to climb the ranks quickly without learning the ropes, so to speak, that's why today's younger wrestlers are sizzling out earlier and the ones that have the training and potential, like yourself, will always rise to the top but when someone is willing to literally break their back to get a pop you would think that a promoter would think twice, but that rarely happens.
So back on track here, Do you feel that the Indy scene is starting to develop more of a following nowadays, especially with only one major promotion in Wrestling?


SWB: Yeah, I do. However, most people still don't know that the Indies exist...but times are changing quickly, so hopefully that will change too.

Louis Velazquez: I think that they will but only if these Indy promoters band together and work with each other because way back when, you had wrestling territories and wrestlers would go from one promotion to another and always get a major pop when lets say they were in the AWA and showed up one day in the NWA, even when the big war went on and someone in WCW showed up in the then WWF, Major pop. That's what the Indy's today need to give the wrestling fans Something to draw them in besides bringing in a name.
If you can change anything about wrestling what would it be?

SWB: Politics.

Louis Velazquez: I agree with you on that.
Slyk, Now we're going to stray off the Pro Wrestling path, tell us more about the real you, your likes, dislikes, your ultimate goals in life both business and personal.

SWB: I like to watch movies, workout, and drive my girlfriend crazy. I dislike the cold, nosey people, and my 9-5. My ultimate goal in life is being able to provide for my family.

Louis Velazquez: Tell us about your training routine, how often do you lift weights? How often do you get ring time?

SWB: I lift weights 5 times per week. There's an interview called 'Fighting Fit' on my website (http://www.SlykWagnerBrown.com)... It includes one of my training routines. Besides working shows on the weekend, I'm not getting much ring time, but I'm hoping to change that soon.

Louis Velazquez: If you had to pick one person, who would you say that you pattern yourself after?


SWB: I couldn't pick just one person. However, some of the guys I like to watch are Kurt Angle, Eddie Guerrero, Shawn Michaels, Rey Mysterio, The Great Muta, and more!

Louis Velazquez: Those are some great athletes, the Great Muta in his prime, Eddie and Rey in the ECW/WCW days, intense.
Now we are going to wind it down because I know that you have some business to handle, Slyk, do you have any inspirational words or stories to share with your devoted fans?

SWB: Sign up for my newsletter and keep yourself posted. I appreciate your support, Thank you!

Slyk, thanks for taking time out of your busy schedule to do this Q & A. We will revisit with Slyk in the coming months to get an update of his wrestling career. Make sure to visit his website www.slykwagnerbrown.com to get the latest updates.
