New download, custom tapings

I’ve just added a new download to the store. This one is definitely something out of the ordinary for what you’ve typically found on my website so far. The premise of this match is that I’m training to win a gold medal at the Ball Bash Olympics. My previous training partner quit on me, and training solo hasn’t been going so well. Luckily for me, Drake Marcos walks in and volunteers his sack for punishment. Drake took quite the ball bashing, he wasn’t walking right for the next day or two. I’m happy to report, that I did win gold. So his suffering wasn’t in vain. The bashing happens in, and out of his jockstrap. It’s a 27 minute download, available now, in the store for $60 (or $30 for all you Club Firestorm members).

 

Food for thought. If you aren’t currently a Club Firestorm member, and you plan on purchasing this bout, why not join first? The $25 sign up, plus the 50% discount on the match, will bring the total to $55 spent. Still under the $60 on the main site. Plus, you’d have access to all of the other great content. The two FREE streaming matches this month are Jonny vs. Chace LaChance: the Cult, and the Challenger 3: Jonny vs. Guido Genatto. Plus you’d have access to the other Club Firestorm members only exclusive match, free photo galleries, video clips, discounts on all the other downloadable videos available on jonnyfirestorm.com and exclusive members only blog posts. Just saying ūüôā

 

I had a killer session at the gym today. I hit my biceps and triceps super hard. I wasn’t really amped up to go to the gym today, I couldn’t find any motivation at first. So I threw on a tank top and decided to hit the glamour muscles. After the first set, and seeing how bad ass (I thought at least) I looked with a pump, it was all the motivation I needed to power through the rest of my routine. I finished it off with an ab routine, and called it a day. I’ve rededicated myself to eating clean as well. With all the traveling I did last month, it was hard to keep on top of my diet.

I had a private 2 on 1 wrestling session yesterday as well. Actually, come to think of it, my last two private matches have been 2 on 1 matches. They’ve both been a lot of fun as well. One out in Chicago with Cameron Matthews (at first as my partner, but I double crossed him, and beat him up), and the one yesterday with other wrestlers. In the match yesterday, I KOed my opponent with a figure 4 head scissors, and could’ve easily with my sleeper hold as well. I was making him ask permission to give up, and then depending on my mood, I’d allow him to ask, or deny him his request. It as a fun little game, something I’d like to use in future videos.

I’m also planning another video taping coming up, the date isn’t quite set yet, but it will be in July, possibly multiple weekends depending on availability. But I expect to be seeing Damien Rush, Biff Farrell, and Brute Baynard. All of whom, look more muscular and better than ever. I also think I’ll be seeing Lon Dumont, Kayden Keller, Ty Alexander, and a couple of my pro friends or nameless jobbers. We’ll definitely have time to take some scripts. customs@jonnyfirestorm.com

I’m going to leave things on this note

I need to go on this. He’s wrestled his brothers shirtless in night clubs, if I can get a video of me wrestling Gronk… ¬† ¬†anyways, till next time Firestormers.

Ringwars 24, FL, CF update

For those of you who haven’t had a chance to check out BG East’s latest set of releases (109.1), you should do so at www.beast.com

You’ll see your friendly neighborhood Firestorm is in action on Ringwars 24, against Rory MacLeod. Truth be told, I don’t recall much about this bout.

  

I’m guessing it was the start of my gradual decent into my beefier years, hence the singlet. Looking back on it now, it’s not like I was in bad shape. Hell, you can still see abs in this picture!

  

I think the photo selection on the website is slightly misleading. I could be wrong, but I don’t recall the match being that one sided. I remember feeling that¬†this was a strange bout for me at the time, because I didn’t particularly care for Rory that much. It’s not that I disliked him, but I was indifferent. It’s easier for me to get excited for matches if I have some connection with my opponent, or there’s something about the match that I find interesting. Whether it’s some match type, or personal goal that I want to accomplish. Not that my desire to destroy all who dare to step in the ring with me isn’t motivating enough.

  

I don’t remember who won, so if you’ve seen the match, shoot me an email and let me know!

I’m also excited to see the release of Guido Genatto vs. Chet Chastain from Fan Fantasy 3. Guido’s an incredible heel (Club Firestorm members just got an exclusive reminder of that), and Chet is one of the best new prospects to come along in awhile. He’s handsome, skilled, has a great body, and the attitude to have long successful BG East career. That being said, he’d be wise to avoid matches like this if he wants a long career. Guido mops the floor with the stud, in what could possibly be the sexiest match that both wrestlers will ever take part in. It’s a must own if you’re a fan of either.

  

The other match that you can’t go wrong with is Kip Sorell being repeatedly KOed by Zach Reno, in Sleeper Surrender 1. Kip is the epitome of perfection, it’s almost unfair that one person can have that much going for him. So it’s great to see Zach make him suffer for being such a pretty boy.

  

I just got back from my trip to Florida. It was a busy, but rewarding trip. We filmed a lot of new BG East matches, I was able to get some Jonny matches done, and celebrate with Drake Marcos for his birthday. We went to the Manor for his birthday with a small group that consisted of me, Drake, Kayden Keller, Rolf Fulton, a BGE rookie, and a friend of ours.

I also updated Club Firestorm with several new photo galleries, free video clips, exclusive matches, and free streaming videos. Expect a CF Members blog soon, with a couple more behind the scenes photos.

I wasn’t able to get any sleep last night, so I’m about to take a nap. Till we meet again, Firestormers!

Florida tomorrow… err… today!

I’m going to Florida tomorrow for a weekend of BG East video tapings, and some of my own as well. I still need to pack my suitcase, I can’t ever seem to get the damn thing packed any sooner than the night before. I have no problem getting the equipment together, but unless the flight is 10 hours away or less, the suitcase is an impossibility.

I’ll have some free time over the weekend to film one or two more custom match requests. I’m not 100% sure about the available roster, but these are the confirmed wrestlers that I have available:

Lane Hartley will also be around.

There will be some others, but I’m not sure of their interest filming custom matches.

Because I’m going to be away¬†frequently in June, I’m going to release the bulk of all the Club Firestorm content right away on the first. Usually it would be spread over some time, but I don’t want to get caught up during the tapings, and not have time to update.

I spent some of Memorial Day with Cameron. I consider him to be one of my closest friends, and whenever we’re together it’s a good time. Here we are trying to decide who gets to roll first in Monopoly.

Well, that about does it for now. I’ve got a suitcase to pack!

My first BG East match

I have a couple of my older blog posts saved and plan on publishing them again periodically. I’m nearly done with another project that should (hopefully) be something very exciting for all you Firestorm fanatics. So then, enjoy this blast from the past!

Most of you think my first match was against Brad Rochelle, in the Contract 6. That was my first match to get released, but I had wrestled several matches prior to that. Now I’m not going to spoil the surprise, and tell you who all my opponents were, and what happened. I will tell you about the first match I ever did for BG East, and my thoughts leading up to it.

I was 19, or maybe I was almost 19. Jeez, I’m already messing up my own story. I swear it will get better from here on out. Either way, the point is, I was still very young, only 2 years into my professional wrestling “career”. Cameron Matthews had been on my case for some time to come do BG East. I was hesitant. Not because of the content but because I was worried it would somehow impact my pro career. I finally decided to give it a go. What’s the worst that could happen? At worst some sleazy promoter doesn’t give me $15 to come wrestle on his crappy show in front of 20 people? I could live with that.

I was very nervous about going to BGE. I didn’t really know what to expect, how the people were going to be, what I would have to wear. At the time, I was a verrrrrrry shy kid. I wore baggy wrestling pants for gear on shows. I just recently started wresting without a shirt on. I know, horrendous gear choice, but it was sort of “in” at the time. Especially if you were a shitty Indy wrestler. Lol.

Cameron agreed to pick me up. I was either carless at the time or my car wouldn’t have made the trip, I forget which. During the ride in, I didn’t really ask much about how this all was going to work. I wanted to, but didn’t want to bring it up for some reason. Besides,¬†we had plenty to talk¬†about with the local pro scene, and our dreams of becoming WWE Superstars. We were nearly at BG East, and I was still pretty nervous about how things were going to go. Part of me expected to pull up to some sketchy looking wrestling bathhouse.

Pulling up to the BGE facility, I was in awe…¬†definitely not a bathhouse. If you know of the facilities or have ever seen photos, you know what I’m talking about. Upon entering, I¬†was greeted by Kid Leopard and the rest of the staff. KL was very personable, and helped put me at ease. We were behind schedule (for those of you who know me, you’re not surprised) so we had to rush through the pleasantries, and get right to work.

The arena had more wrestling stuff in one room than I had ever seen. I had some of the same toys as a kid. Lol. Now it was time for the dreaded gearing up process. I was terrified. I tried on several things, and hated all of them. It wasn’t because he was throwing me in g-strings or anything but I was just so used to wearing baggy stuff, I had never tried on anything¬†this tight. Well, other than my wrestling singlet, that covered a lot more though. I hated the way everything looked. I was pasty white, had razor bumps all over me, not an ounce of muscle and had on these little black speedos with flames on the front. Now that the gear was decided it was onto the match, I was nervous about what I’d be called though. I definitely didn’t want to use my real name, for the obvious reasons.

“Firestorm”, Cameron jokes. I’m assuming the flames on the trunks are what made him think of it. KL agreed, Firestorm worked. Jon is my real name so Jonny was the easy first name. I wasn’t in love with it but at least it wasn’t something like “Rod Steel” or some other typical porn name. Now, I honestly couldn’t picture going by any other name. So big props to Cam for that!

Taking pictures always made me uncomfortable. I never really was photogenic and now I’m in the tightest, smallest pair of speedos I¬†had ever seen, trying to flex my non existent muscle for KL. I couldn’t wait to finish with all the prematch stuff, and get to the wrestling. When I look back at it, I can’t help but laugh. These days (because I’m in shape) I can’t wait to put on some form fitting, sexy trunks and take some pictures. I still don’t think I’m particularly photogenic (not like some of the other wrestlers) but I enjoy it.

Cameron and I warmed up, stretched out a bit. Talked a little shit pre-match, and prepared to do battle. That’s kinda been the fun thing about being friends with Cameron. We both get along very well, but when it comes to wrestling it’s different. Almost like we both have split personalities. It’s understood that whatever happens in the ring, or on camera stays there. One of us might have some bumps and bruises, or a battered ego after, but we don’t (or try not to) let it carry over into our personal life. It was a tough match, I didn’t really “get” what we were going for. I asked for some guidance from KL before the match and he was more than happy to offer up how he’d like to see Cameron tortured.

It wasn’t a squash job by any means. I don’t think I was capable of such a thing at the time. It was a tough match with some good back and forth. I won’t spoil the match by revealing details. I haven’t watched the match in quite some time,¬†but looking back on it, I think you’ll be able to tell I was a Indy wrestler doing BG East. I approached and treated the match like I would any other on a wrestling show. It was go, go, go. I wasn’t methodically inflicting pain, and punishment on Cam like I would now. I tried to be a bad ass, but I had never been a heel before! I was always interested in being a heel, and felt like it came naturally to me. More so than faking the baby face role. Once it’s released, I’d like to watch it, followed up by something recent. Just to see the difference and evolution of my wrestling style.

Post match, I had a nice chat with KL. We got along great. He said I’d be welcome back if I was interested in continuing by BG East career. Obviously I took him up on the offer and the rest is history!

Top dog

I won BG East’s year end award for the “Best Squash of 2014”, I think this is the 3rd year in a row I’ve been involved in the best squash job. My poor opponent was newbie, Nicholas Rush. As soon as the Boss set him in my cross hairs, I was drooling to sink my teeth into him. Just look at the two of us, it was a mismatch from the start.

 

I don’t recall poor Nicky getting a single offensive maneuver in. I was in a muscle building phase during this match, so I’m a little beefier, but more muscular than I typically am. Despite our appearances, we were the same weight. Nicholas did have a 9 inch height advantage over me though, not that it mattered.

  

The match has a terrific write up on the BGE website, click here to visit the webpage. Demolition 17 is a fantastic DVD overall. It also features 2014’s top babyface winner, Jake Jenkins. Poor Jake is matched up against the beefy bruiser, Guido Genatto. That match in particular won the “Best ring match and the best submission, of 2014”. Demo 17 has a little something for everybody AND it’s on sale until March 1st! Just to reiterate, best heel, best babyface, best squash, best ring match, and best submission all on one DVD, at a discounted price. It’s a no brainer.

  

Here’s a fun behind the scenes fact, the visible scratch on my head during this match is a result of an impromptu wrestling match against Jake Jenkins. I forget who else was around but Jake and I both have extensive amateur wrestling experience, Austin Cooper was egging us on a bit and we threw down. It was pretty intense but I was able to get the better of Jake. We all went out into Boston that night and Austin wouldn’t stop teasing Jake about it.

I’m finally back on track as far as dieting and working out go. I’m not sick of eating healthy yet, no cravings and I haven’t had a cheat day…yet. Working out has been a bit discouraging. I know it can take a while to get back to where I was before but it’s very humbling. I’m struggling to put up half the weight I used to and I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck. I think with another week under my belt the level of soreness will go down significantly, my body just needs to adjust to lifting weights again. If I keep at it, I’ll have my abs back by April.

I’d also like to give Cameron Matthews a congrats on finally winning best ass. I’m glad your ass is finally getting the recognition it deserves.

Fan Fantasy 2, NYC

First, let me have my fan moment.¬†What an amazing Super Bowl! I was one play away from throwing the nearest object through my TV. I know people are saying the Patriots got lucky, and they did. But Seattle was just as lucky getting the ball all the way down there on that bobble catch. So the two plays kind of cancel out. For all you upset Seattle fans, I have this to say…

 

BG East just put out a new catalog and I’m starring in one of the products. Fan Fantasy 2 pits me against BGE icon, Christopher Bruce.

  

This match was very early in my BGE career, not quite a heel, not quite a jobber, just an eager young wrestler looking to make his mark. I was super pumped when Kid Leopard called and said I was going to be wrestling Chris Bruce next. He was¬†one of my idols, somebody I never imagined I’d get to step in the ring with. He was always entertaining to me, always very well built and skilled. He went from being a¬†young fantasyman beefcake¬†in his early releases¬†to a beefy muscle hunk as a veteran grappler. It’s hard to keep your appearance up throughout the years (I’ve found that out the hard way, lol), and I¬†admired that Chris Bruce was consistently a stud every time he stepped in the ring… or on the mat. He takes a lot of flack for always coming up on the losing end of things, but he’s good¬†in the ring. There’s a lot of power behind his attacks. He just happened to be up against other high quality opponents.

  

Let’s be honest, I suspect that in many of his matches he was set up to fail. When you look the way he does, the Boss will often match you up against the biggest, baddest, dirtiest wrestlers around. With his physique and handsome face, why wouldn’t you want to see him get bashed. That’s what pretty boys are for. Looking back on this match now, I wonder what KL’s motives were. Was he seeing if Chris Bruce could put me in my place, or was he grooming me to become the heel I am today?

  

I vividly remember this match being around the time my BGE career started to take a turning point. I wen’t from the skinny newcomer and soon after this bulked up to be a muscle pro. Chris Bruce taught me some lessons in the ring during this match that I still use to this day.

 

On a side note, I’m going to be in NYC again next¬†Friday (2/20). As of right now it’s just a day trip, but I wouldn’t mind extending it into Saturday if need be. Email privates@jonnyfirestorm.com if you’d like to schedule a private match.
