Eurotripping

I can’t wait to go back! As most of you know, I shot overseas with Cameron for two weeks in mid-July. I ended up having a lot more free time than I anticipated, which wasn’t the worst thing, there was so much to see and do. The flight over was pretty miserable, I forgot to reserve a seat in advance, so I was sandwiched between people.

We started our trip off in London, where we wasted no time getting wild. Adjusting to the time change was a little hard, we napped a little more than I intended (but it was much needed, I didn’t sleep the night before, or the entire flight over) for the first day or two. We made up for it, for the hours we were awake though. I was lucky to get a match in with a very good friend while they happened to be in London at the same time. It was a really cool experience, I didn’t have a chance to cross everything off my to do list, it’s such a big city. We did head north to see some pro friends, and check out a pro show.

13662158_1556426011327024_8760872206069959150_oAfter that we shot down to Wales for a bit. The scenery is definitely different, especially for somebody who lives around Boston. It was almost like driving through Vermont, just more rural, and way more sheep. After making a couple stops to eat and see some castles, we ended up in Cardiff, which was one of our trips highlights. Friendly people, beautiful city, and there was a day long beer festival happening down by Cardiff Bay. After our Cardiff adventure, it was off to see Stonehenge.

 

Dublin was up next, we started off pretty strong (after a nap of course). I wasn’t feeling very well for this leg of our trip because of some heath issues I’ve been having, so unfortunately Dublin was the most disappointing part of our trip. We were supposed to head out and do the Cliffs of Moher, outside of the Guinness Storefront, this was one of the things I was looking forward to the most, but I was bedridden most of the day. Eh, it happens. Up next….

Paris! Or at least that’s what we thought. We ended up at some obscure airport about an hour and a half north of Paris. Thankfully, the person who was sandwiched between us on our flight over helped us get into the city. We probably would’ve been there a lot longer if it weren’t for them (neither of us speak French).

Paris, on a whole, was probably one of my favorite parts of the trip. The only negative was that I  surprised how poorly the grounds around the Eiffel Tower were treated. The panhandlers there leave an outrageous amount of litter, I’d assume the local police would at least attempt to take measures against it. I’d like to go back to see some of the other museums we didn’t get a chance to visit, and to spend more time in the Louvre. There’s no way you can see everything in there with one visit. I think next time, I’d opt for one of the audio guides as well, unless I’m with somebody who can translate for me. Not being able to read the signs also resulted in us sprinting across the Arc de Triomphe roundabout, instead of taking the much safer underground walkway, which we found after playing human frogger.

We capped things back off with another couple days in London, beat up the biggest jobber in the UK together, and it was time to head home. Thankfully I was able to reserve a window seat for the flight back.

Now that I’m back home, back on schedule, and finally settled in, I’m working on a couple ideas, and arranging a big shoot for August. I’ve been dealing with a variety of health issues, they seem to be under control, but things were a little scary for awhile. I was really close to having to cancel my trip to Europe. All I have to contend with now are a couple nagging injuries (I fractured my ankle the week before I left for Europe). It’s also my birthday month! I’m not sure I’m going to offer the DVD specials like I did last year, but I have something else planned. Football season is almost here, I can’t wait to see how Jimmy G plays until TB12 comes back and dominates the NFL. If they can stay healthy, I don’t see why this team can’t win another Super Bowl.

What’s this? An update?

It’s been awhile, I didn’t really realize it till now, but the Club Firestorm members have been getting a lot more love than you guys. Well, that all changes now. Sort of. Let’s get the cheap plug out of the way first.

Club Firestorm has had several very recent (as in tonight) changes. You’ll notice them immediately by visiting the Exclusive Content section(s), and the wrestlers section. The discounted content and free clips are going to be following suite later this week. I think it’s just a better method overall for displaying content, and making sure everybody can see exactly what they’re looking for.

Incase you’re on the fence about it… why join Club Firestorm? This is why

I’ve done 2 pro shows in the last month, which is pretty much what I’ve done per year for the past couple years. I’m feeling pretty good, my knee has held up just fine. Granted, I’ve changed up the way I wrestle slightly, so I’m minimizing the risk involved. I’ve also been going to pro training every Monday at a local school. It’s not the most prestigious place to train, but it’s close by and there’s a lot of rookies. Coaching people up is something I enjoy, and being at a more inexperienced school has given the the opportunity to do just that. I don’t necessarily want to be considered a trainer, but I do like pulling people aside, and give them my two cents. So far everybody has been very receptive, and eager for me to help them, which is nice. Almost makes me feel like I know what I’m talking about. Most of them aren’t destined for anything other than local, weekend warrior VFW status, which is fine, but one or two of them do have the potential to make something of themselves. I’d also be lying if I said the appeal of going to a new school full of rookies wasn’t about recruiting new talent, and beating up jobbers 🙂

I’ve been dieting and working out almost as strictly as I was when I lost all that weight a couple years back. I’ve been in the gym (and killing it by the way) just as much, the diet has proven to be a bit more of a struggle. I’m taking a day or two where I definitely go over my numbers for the day, but for the  most part I’m on point. I’ve lost 15 lbs already, I feel pretty good, I think I definitely look better, and I plan on sticking with it for another month or two, just so I can get the abs back in time for summer. Just kidding, sort of. It’s mostly just so I can be happy with the way I look. I don’t mind being a little beefy, it’s easy to do with my height, adding on 5 lbs is very notable when you’re 5’5 as opposed to 6’0. My clothes weren’t fitting right, my belly was jiggling while having sex, it was time for a change it up for a bit. So fans of fit Jonny, get ready, because there’s no telling how long it’ll last once it happens. Fans of beefy Jonny, no worries. There’s plenty of archived footage, and let’s be serious, it’s not going to last, I love beer, and junk food entirely too much. Plus, football season starts in September, game over diet. However, as I write this I’m ending a night where I had a perfect diet, but had a couple beers too many. The carbs alone put me over my numbers by a ton. Need to regroup tomorrow.

I’m kind of nerdy, not full blown, but nerdier than most. I can’t wait for this summer’s lineup of superhero movies. Batman vs. Superman followed up by Captain America: Civil War is going to be super bad ass! Game of Thrones can’t come soon enough, and the Walking Dead feels like things are really about stop start picking up. Can’t forget about DareDevil this Friday on Netflix!

I’m supposed to be having a sleep over with the one and only Cameron Matthews on Thursday. Some St. Patty’s Day festivities at the end of the night, but first, we’re going to be inviting a select group of New England pro’s to my personal ring space to work out with us. It should be a really fun night, anytime we get together is. Cam even showed up to my last pro show with a “Jonny 3:16” sign. lol.

I recently had my first taping since my knee injury. I wrestled in 5 matches, which was about 2 1/2 horus of ring time. It was a lot of fun, definitely helped build my confidence back up. Some of the other in attendance were Kayden Keller, Drake Marcos, Ty Alexander, Chet Chastain, Charlie Evans, Brice Moore, Ethan Andrews, and Biff Farrell. It’s always good to get a bunch of people together to wrestle, but I also really enjoy the social interaction. Plus, being crammed into a hotel room together, and sharing a bed with Biff is never a bad thing.

I’m talking to some brand new wrestlers, so expect to see some brand new faces (like, really brand spanking new) pop up soon. I’m also working on getting some of those elusive dram matches put together, Chet Chasten vs. Aryx Quinn anybody? So hopefully you’ll be seeing more of those soon.

Well, it’s way past my bedtime, I need my beauty rest! Surer sleepers to all Firestormers, and to all a goodnight!

Firestorm Friday, Sleeper Holds 1

This Friday, July 31st, will be Firestorm Friday. On Firestorm Friday, I’m going to make one of the exclusive Club Firestorm matches available to everybody, for the weekend only. At 12:01 A.M, Monday morning, it will go back to being a Club Firestorm exclusive match. It won’t be offered at the discount price that Club Firestorm members get, but it’s a one time special offer that is going to kick off the month of August, which happens to be my birthday month!

Club Firestorm members can expect some extra content thrown in this month as well. I’ve been experimenting making Blu-ray discs available, in addition to downloads. The picture quality is superb, but to commit to doing it, I would need to make some software improvements. Is Blu-ray something everybody would be interested in? I like to think that my downloads have good picture quality, but the Blu-ray test discs that I’ve made, blow them out of the water.

I’ve updated the store with a brand new download offering. Sleeper Holds 1: Jonny Firestorm vs. Damien Rush.

I ambush Damien while he’s in the middle of a posing session. Before the muscle stud knows what’s happening, he’s nearly KO’ed. I don’t want the fun to end there, I let him regain his composure, just to get locked into a different sleeper variation. I repeatedly sleeper out my new muscle play toy, standing, on the mat, in the ropes, and spread in the corner. A hot, sleeper hold lovers, dream bout.

Click here to visit the store and purchase the video. Remember, Club Firestorm members will be able to purchase this video at it’s discounted price on August 1st.

So far I have no actual plans for my birthday, I was hoping to have a big gathering out in Vegas, but most people couldn’t make it work. I’m open for suggestions. I think it’s likely that I’ll end up in Boston for the night. Speaking of Boston, I just spent a night out on the town with Cameron. We extended an invite to Scott Williams, but he wasn’t able to check out of the museum he’s kept in. It’s understandable, he’s an important part of the ancient history of jobbers.

That does it for now Firestormers!

Top 10 wrestlers I’d like to wrestle. Part 1.

I’m bringing this blog post back from the past, part 2 will be later on this week. I’m going to be very busy this week with a mix of BG East tapings, and stuff for the Firestorm site, and Club Firestorm. Expect a full update after things settle down next week! For Club Firestorm Members, a new Exclusive match, free video clip, and photo gallery has been added. You’re also going to get another added bonus at some point this week!

I’ve stepped into the ring, or on the mat with a modern day who’s who of BG East wrestling. But, I haven’t locked up with everybody on my personal “to do list”. Some wrestlers have retired, others have managed to slip through my fingers. Here’s my top 10 wrestlers I’d like to sink my teeth into. This blog post will feature wrestlers #10-6.

Honorable mentions: Beau Nasty, Gabriel Ross, Shane McCall, TNT, Bryan, Wade Cutler, Greg Leary, Rafe Sanchez, Kid Vicious, Dark/Scott Rogers, Kid Brock, Biff Farrell, Cameron Matthews, and Chet Chastian.

#10- Vinny Trevino

Boxing stud Vinny Trevino

Boxing stud Vinny Trevino

Vinny beat out Dark/Scott Rogers for my #10 spot. Look at him, you’d be hard pressed not to include him in a top 10 list for anything. His pecs, abs, arms, legs, and back, the guy was built like a brick shit house. He wasn’t a pushover either. He displayed his boxing talent in several of his matches, using those skills to put a beating on Patrick Donovan in Gut Bash 2. Just the idea of stringing him upside down in the corner, and beating on those abs, or tying him in the ropes, and pounding on those big, beefy pecs is what really earned him the 10 spot.

 

#9- Morgan Cruise

A potential challenge in Morgan Cruise?

A potential challenge in Morgan Cruise?

He nearly beat me out for “Heel of the Year” in the BG East awards one year. I’d like the chance to put him to the test. With Morgan it’s not about appearances or desire. It’s about the challenge. He would be a very formidable opponent for me, he’s strong, he has a sadistic streak, and he’s proficient with his wrestling skills. It would be a fun battle.

 

#8-  Troy Baker

Ultra ripped Fantasyman Troy Baker

Ultra ripped Fantasyman Troy Baker

Like I really need to get into why. He’s Troy fucking Baker, look at him. The things I would do to that body.

 

#7-  Scott Williams

Jobber of the millennium, Scott Williams

Jobber of the millennium, Scott Williams

No need to adjust your monitor, nothing’s wrong with it. Nope, not a typo. It’s not April 1st either. I’m not sure why he’s on this list to be honest. With a face a mother couldn’t love, the body of an underdeveloped Proboscis monkey (which does resemble Scott, look at that nose), and non existent wrestling skill, he wouldn’t pose much of a challenge. I’ve heard his screams of submission echo through the BGE arena more times than I care for. The match would be fun though, his reluctance to submit, and the never ending nonsensical babble that comes out of his mouth, would only help motivate me to perform one of the best squash jobs BG East would ever see. Too bad this one will never happen. Retired would be an understatement, he’s border line extinct. Last I heard, Scott was on display at the Smithsonian. 

 

#6- Lane Hartley

Hunky rookie Lane Hartley

Hunky rookie Lane Hartley

Ruggedly handsome, and highly skilled, Lane Hartley exploded onto the BGE landscape by dismantling Brad Barnes. Lane’s comparable to Donnie Drake in my book. Hopefully for me, the outcome of our match wouldn’t be the same as the match with Donnie. I’m always up for a challenge, and I have no doubt Lane has what it takes to push me to my limit. I’ll be lining up at Kid Leopard’s door asking for this match. I think Lane’s inexperience in BG style wrestling would ultimately be his downfall. One strategically time crotch claw would probably throw him off his game, and give me an opening to put him down for the count.

 

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 🙂

 

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

http://www.gronkspartyship.com

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.

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!
