Jaysin Static hopes to electrify the Midwest

Posted by reimaginejournalism on June 14, 2009

Jaysin Static’s wrestling career began two years ago at the urging of one of Mid-Missouri Wrestling Association-Southern Illinois Championship Wrestling (MMWA-SICW) mainstays—Shaft. In a relatively short time, Static has traveled across three states with hopes of learning from everyone he encounters.

“[Shaft] told me to come down to a show when I started working [with him], and it was all she wrote from there. I started coming down and watching as a fan and finally decided to get into it,” Static said.

During his time in wrestling, Static has already discovered what he considers one of the most important aspects.

“Respect. We all go out and do the same thing to put a show on for the fans. My main thing is, I’m going to respect you if you respect me. Wrestling’s been around many, many, many years, and I respect everybody and everyone that’s ever been in it because if it wasn’t for them, there wouldn’t be me. There wouldn’t be anyone else,” Static said.

Although Static works predominantly with MMWA-SICW, his journey has taken him to Heartland Championship Wrestling, Juggalo Championship Wrestling and Colisuem Championship Wrestling (CCW) based out of Indiana. While with JCW, Static had the opportunity to step in the ring with one of his childhood idols on April 25, 2008.

“I grew up watching Tracy Smothers and some of the other guys that were on the [JCW] show. Raven was on the show. He was one of the main people that inspired me to [start wrestling].

“[Tracy Smothers and I] still talk every once in a while, and he just inspires me to keep doing what I’m doing… I don’t know. I can’t put it into words. It’s really hard to explain because he just [makes me want] to push harder to get to the level of where they’ve all been,” Static said.

Static looks up to every person in the business because they put their bodies on the line every time they step in the ring. Although Phil E. Blunt has been Static’s most consistent opponent, Static could not pinpoint one wrestler he would like to step in the ring with due to the vast array of talent in the area.

“There [are] so many great, talented guys in the industry, especially here in the Midwest. I really couldn’t put it into words because there [are] great guys everywhere. LWA. High Voltage [Wrestling]. Everybody’s got great wrestlers. I don’t complain about anybody. Everybody’s great in my eyes. Anybody that wants to wrestle me, come on. I’m down for anybody,” Static said.

In addition to his eagerness to wrestle whenever the opportunity presents itself, he also has a sincere appreciation for the art.

“I never stop learning. That’s the good thing about this, you never stop learning. You learn from anybody and everybody that you step in the ring with. If it’s just a regular indy guy from down here [South Broadway] or a big name veteran like Tracy Smothers, you never stop learning. You learn from everybody,” Static said.

With that, Static leaves an open challenge to anyone willing to face him—“Midwest, watch out. Jaysin Static is back, and I’ll face anyone, anywhere, any time.”
