Since there seems to be a lot of interest in ECW‘s Bam Neely (a.k.a. Hellfire, Gutts, Gutz, Magnus Maximus, etc., etc.), and not a lot of information on some of his earlier work, I went digging around to see if I had any footage of some early matches.
Turns out it would have been easier for me to create a Claymation re-enactment of this match than to dig through a pile of tapes to find it. Should have done a better job of indexing this stuff.
As I think I mentioned before, both he and Prime Time had initially trained with another wrestling promoter and had a few matches before coming to Eddie Sharkey and Terry Fox‘s training camp. I believe this was their first match after switching to Sharkey.
This match originally aired on “Slick” Mick’s Bodyslam Review, hosted by Mick Karch and produced by Al Pabon.
Where is Blood?
The Hellraisers were always in the Main events all over the state, What happened in Steel Domain Wrestling that made them break up?
And as a devoted fan at the time I had real talks with these Guys after the matches and was shocked to hear at the time that there was a real hatred between these two after the breakup!
Do these guy’s talk anymore?
It would be great for all the fans around the world if these two could somehow get back together, They by far were the most entertaining wrestlers in the upper midwest if not the world!
