Column: John Striker Offers His Latest “Pillar To Post”

March 24, 2009 · Print This Article

Greetings from the Motor City , and welcome to another great edition of “Pillar to Post.”  I am your benevolent host, John “GQ Assassin is jealous of my good looks” Striker.

Last Minute Notice
Last Minute Notice was a great show, as expected.  GQ Assassin and Rave K. capturing the Tag Titles once again was sure to be a highlight for those in attendance.  I think this third title win finally and truly cements the Friends as the dominant tag team in CLASH, past or present.

One thing I have to wonder though, is who’s going to step up and challenge for those belts?  The CLASH Tag Team division is currently suffering, what with the departure of Steff O’Riley, the splitting of Wreckingforce, the injury sustained by the Blue Ranger, and the disintegration of the H3RD.

Of course superior teams breed superior competition.  I’ve got wind that both the Brothers Fusion, who traveled to CLASH to see what the buzz was about, and Danny Danger and Josh Thor have the CLASH Tag Team Titles on their minds.

CLASH Wrestling – Fountain of Youth?
I met the sweetest lady at Last Minute Notice.  She was of a more advanced age, probably sixty to sixty-five or older.  The show had just gone to intermission when she comes up to me and says, “Is Ace High single?”  I respond, and I’m sorry to break the news to the thirteen year olds reading this hoping one day to marry the champ, “No, he’s not.”  “Oh, that’s too bad,” says the woman “He’s so sexy!”

I couldn’t help but laugh.  I mean, think of it.  Cameron Skyy, partying out in Vegas, hitting all the clubs and hot spots… with a sixty five year old woman on his arm.  Luckily, instead of slapping me, the lady was laughing too.  She returned to her seat and laughed and giggled with her friends like she was a teenager.  My “This lady is crazy” notion turned to “Aww, that’s cool that she can have such fun with something like this”.  And really, isn’t that what it’s all about?  At the end of the day, you can hate Jack Night and love J. Miller but what’s most important of all is that if you come to a CLASH show, you will have fun.

Double Shot Weekend
So CLASH is doing a double shot this weekend, with shows in BOTH Gibraltar Trade Centers.  I do wonder why they are called the Gibraltar Trade Center when neither is actually in Gibraltar. Raven will be on hand for both shows, which is always a plus.  Raven is an intelligent and humorous personality both in and out of the ring. Those of you that listen to CLASH Radio, which ought to be all of you, can imagine what fun we had recording with Raven.  It won’t be all fun and games though, there will be some serious matches taking place.  Aside from Raven’s matches against Wreckingball and Tommy Tydie we also get to see J. Miller in action as well as Kreed and Ace High teaming on Saturday and facing off for the CLASH Championship on Sunday.  I know I am going to be so pumped up it’s like I had a double shot of espresso. Oh, double shot weekend… those marketing people are genius!

Bigger and Better Things
Speaking of genius, I have to tip my hat to the CLASH board of directors and Jeremy Jones.  I know Jones can be a bit of an odd character, but he’s leading CLASH in the right direction.  I’m proud to be a part of CLASH.  We’ve got Raven, we’ve had Scotty 2 Hotty, Marty Jannetty, and Shark Boy.  We expanded to run shows not only at the home base of Taylor Town Trade Center but also in Livonia , Rockwood, Mt. Clemens, Dirtfest, the Downriver Cruise, and both Gibraltar Trade Center’s in one weekend!

I really don’t mean to sound like a lackey of the board of directors when I say expect big things from CLASH.  We’re redefining wrestling in Michigan and the whole Midwest region.  These are exciting times we’re a part of and I just have to encourage everyone to be a part of it!

Until next time, folks, I’ll be at the Chinese Buffet… see ya!
