Introducing Ohio Valley Wrestling Trainee Michael Hayes

Posted by flairwhoooooo on December 7, 2010

Last month at Pro Wrestling Epic we were on hand to watch the PWE Champion the Mississippi Madman team up with former WWE’s Eugene to take on “The Future” Donovan Ruddick and Mason Beck.

During the evening I had the chance to sit down with a young Michael Hayes. Hayes is just beginning to train under Eugene (Nick Dinsmore )and the rest of the staff at Ohio Valley Wrestling.

The website says it best

Ohio Valley Wrestling is recognized around the world as one of the finest professional wrestling training facilities in the industry. OVW counts among its many accolades that it was once one of the official developmental programs for World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE), the sport’s leading promotion.

Over the years, OVW has trained over one hundred superstars for the WWE, including many current and past WWE Champions: Batista, John Cena, Victoria, Doug and Danny Basham, Shelton Benjamin, Charlie Haas, Randy Orton, plus many more including Rob Conway, Eugene, Sylvan Grenier, Bobby Lashley, and Lance Cade.

Located in Louisville, Kentucky, OVW‘s training center is under the supervision of OVW owner “Nightmare” Danny Davis, a former pro wrestler with nearly 30 years’ experience in wrestling, managing, promoting, and training, with Rip Rogers as lead trainer – who is a veteran pro wrestler and trainer in his own right.

Let me share with you a special interview I did with Hayes.

The Fan Shop (formerly known as The Pro Shirt Shop) has changed location and name this past fall, but hopes to carry on the tradition of providing the wrestling fans with a place in St Louis that they can come and buy wrestling merchandise, souvenirs and autographs.

I went to their new location this past week and was delighted to not only see a wide range of merchandise but a mini museum of wrestling history. They had on display an autograph Cape from Hulk Hogan’s character Thunderlips from the movie Rocky 3 that really impressed me and for the younger generation there is a Rey Mysterio worn mask from his days in WCW. This is just a few of the fun stuff to check out at the “The Fan Shop”.

 

The store is now owned by wrestling manager Mr. Bigg and managed by fellow manager The Mat Maniac/ Mr. GQ Matthew Wayne Schuyler 3rd. With years in experience in the sport they are knowledgeable with a passion and love for the sport as you and I do.

 

If you know anything about me then you know I enjoy wrestling autobiographies and Wrestling shoot interviews. While I was in the store I picked up the Larry Matysik book Wrestling at the Chase- The Inside story of Sam Muchnick and the Legends of Professional Wrestling. A book so good I have had a hard time putting down long enough so that I can work on the Missouri Wrestling Revival site. The Fan Shop also has a wide range of classic St Louis Wrestling at the Chase videos you can catch up with the backbone of Professional wrestling’s History with matches that include Harley Race, Ric Flair,Dust Rhodes, Bruiser Brody, the Von Erich’s and much more.

 

Ladies, it is close to that time of the year where you will be searching for a Valentines gift for the special man in your life, why not try The Fan Shop? Show him that he is your World Champion with classic and current Replica Belts. Look for the T-shirt, action figure or DVD of his favorite wrestler, The Fan Shop also has many authentic autographs that will be sure to bring a smile to his day.

 

They also are branching out to All Sports- Collectibles and Autographs. Are you looking for a Custom Jersey or an Autograph come in the store to find out if they happen to have what you are looking for. If you are a fan of MMA, the Fan Shop should be a place for you too check out; while I was in the store my girlfriend even found her a sexy girl UFC shirt that impressed her proving that there is something in the store for anyone.

The Fan Shop is world renown for bringing in some of the top stars in the area for you to meet. In the past three years they have been a part of autograph signings that is a who’s who in the sport. Current WWE Superstars Batista has been in the store as well as Hall of Famers Harley Race, Terry Funk, Bret Hart just to name a few of the legends to grace their way to the store.
