I’m going to be doing a small custom taping next weekend. Chase Addams will be making a rare appearance. Coming off his smash hit matches in Tag Team Torture 19. Chase isn’t usually in the area, so if you have a scenario involving him you’d like to see, be sure to pounce on the opportunity to get it done!
Biff Farrell will also be around and he’s packed on even more muscle than pictured. He’s now a muscled, lean 210 lbs!
I haven’t finished assembling the whole cast, but also available are
It should go without saying that I’ll be available as well.
I’ll keep this post updated as I add more wrestlers!
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.

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!
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 Firestormmembers 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. email@example.com
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!
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!
Florida ended up being a very busy trip. I think I saw the water once, might have been out in the sun once. Not that you’d be able to tell from my non existent tan lines.
I can’t post pictures from the BGE taping, but I will brag about the guys we had wrestle. All of them were studs. I can’t wait to see the reaction people have when the matches are finally released. Two of them aren’t new to the wrestling world and another two are brand new rookies who should be early favorites for some of the year end awards in 2015.
Of course there were some night time shenanigans as well. My first night in I went out with the boys to a well known local establishment and we got our drink on. Things can get a little out of control when you have alcohol and wrestlers mixed together, this was one of our calmer photo ops.
That being said, it probably wasn’t the smartest idea to have a couple nights of drinking under my belt before we started filming. I was more bloated than I should’ve been, but like I said in my last post. Everything seems to be on track, just gotta focus more on the mid section, and I have been!
I filmed a lot of custom matches, I wish I had time to do more. The response I got from my previous blog was overwhelming. I’m still trying to catch up on emails from the trip to let people know that I didn’t have time for their request.
I can’t post some of the images from the matches I did for a couple different reasons (imaginations run wild), but I hope you enjoy some of the photos I am willing to share.
I’m going to be doing another (larger) custom match taping mid to late April, I’ll have the cast posted as they confirm. This time I’m leaving myself plenty of time to fulfill any and all custom match requests that I receive.
We had several different themes from the matches pictured. Some of them have a theme of me being the leader of a heel cult. Our sole purpose is to recruit new heels (sometimes against their will) and train them in the art of domination. If they’re able to survive their initiation some are promoted to the next rank, others are doomed to forever be the punching bags for the next group of heels in training.
We had several low blow themed matches. One with me and Austin Cooper that was very back and forth. Another between Drake Marcos and me that had be busting his bulge the entire time. I had fun, he probably had less fun.
I also did a sleepers themed squash match where I repeatedly knocked out Austin Cooper with a variety of different sleeper holds.
The one that I enjoyed the most was probably a custom requested Custom Combat, where I destroy poor Ty Alexander. He was a trooper, he took everything I could dish out. Not with a smile on his face, but he survived. When you’re on the receiving end of a squash match with me, surviving is all you can ask for.
When we were done with two very long days of filming, I went out with the boys and celebrated. We went out to dinner and hit up the Manor after. We were separated and not all of us went home together. I hope they had as much fun as I did!
I don’t have a lot of downtime, despite what most people think. I was home from FL for about 24 hours before shooting up to Montreal. It was a short visit, I can’t wait to go back though. I love going up, there’s always something fun going on, the people are nice, the food is good. I can’t wait till the weather is a little nicer and walking around the city is enjoyable.
The new camcorder works great, there’s a slight learning curve that I’m getting accustomed to. As you can see from the photos, we were whited out at times. In the past having too much light in that ring room was never a problem, the camera handles low light situations spectacularly. Lesson learned. I haven’t played around much with the 4K recording mode yet, mostly because the computer I have isn’t equipped to handle the footage. In about a week that won’t be a problem anymore.
I had a great week in the gym… at least I think that I did. I stepped up my ab work and have been doing some extra work on my chest and back this week. Next week I’m going to start working in some cardio on my non lifting days, so hopefully the abs will start coming in faster.
If the formatting on this is a little off it’s because I’m doing it from my phone while running at the gym. That’s it for now Firestormers, till next time!
I’ve been slacking with the blog lately. I’d like to think its for good reason though. I’m making strides getting back into shape, I’ve been taping plenty of custom matches, and I even did a pro show the other week. I’ve had my share of shenanigans as well. I got punched in the face on St. Party’s day…by a lesbian. It hurt and the ring left a nice little cut. It was a honest/drunken mistake. She was a classmate of mine in HS, I went over to say hi and wrestling came up. Next thing you know, “I could be a wrestler” is slurred out, and BAM! Right in the face. I’ve been hit harder by tougher though, it’ll take a lot more than that to put the firestorm down.
The pro show was a lot of fun. I filled in for somebody on short notice. I haven’t been on a show in a long time so it was nice to get back in front of a crowd and do my thing. Believe it or not, in most of my pro shows in the baby face (good guy). I was in a triple threat match with two other heels, who wasted no time forging an alliance and double teaming me every opportunity they got. I fought back and picked up with win though, and I felt like it went well enough that I might start doing shows again semi regularly. Im hoping to have the video up soon.
Getting back in shape has been a very frustrating and rewarding experience. I’ve had days where I’ve felt like the man of steel and others where I’m a total failure. The diet aspect is always tough for me. I’ve stuck with it for about 85% of the time. Had a couple nights where I broke down and binge ate snacks late at night or had some drinks after a stressful day. Or eating clean while I travel is tough as well. I don’t mind if I know I’m going over my numbers while I travel, if I know it’s good that at least has nutritional value. It’s when I stupidly woof down a piece of chocolate cake that I feel like an asshole.
The gym has mostly been a success. I forgot how much I enjoyed lifting weights. It really is a high for me. I feel great after a good workout. There’s been a couple days where I’ve been off, or just so tired I wasn’t able to have a killer work out, or even a good one. I those situations I do my best to “get through it”, without dialing it in. Some days the strength just isn’t there for me, so I go lighter and higher reps. Just yesterday I had one of my best days in the gym, I’m lifting weight back up near my normal numbers finally. Felt great to bench a couple sets at 225 again. The squats are around 275 right now, front squats 185. Curling varies wildly for me depending what else I’m doing that day and if I’m using free weights or an EZ bar. Free weights I’m back up around 40/45, the EZ bar 70/80. I’m starting to see some results. I think in another month or so I’m going to look pretty damn good, and will just need to focus on the abs coming in to be back in firestorm shape.
Filming custom matches has been a ton of fun. I’ve had some wild conceps lately and a couple more coming up that I can’t wait to do. Unfortunately my camera broke and it forced my hand into making a mich needed upgrade. Next I’ll need to upgrade my computer so I can take advantage of all the new features the camera has. I don’t often get much feedback from clients other than, “thanks Jonny, that’s exactly what I wanted”, but here’s something a satisfied customer wrote. This match was filmed with about 15 minutes of advance notice, we nailed it with barely any prep time.
“That was fucking fantastic Jonny. It was really, really fun. In fact, it was nearly perfect. I loved the variety of ways the blows were inflicted and the garish reactions that followed. Both of you were clearly all in on the theme and it showed. I will definitely order more matches from you in the future! Good stuff Jonny! I really appreciate your making this for me. You boys are great!”
Speaking of custom matches I’m flying down to FL right now to shoot a batch and I think I have some time to squeeze in one or two more matches if people are interested. The line up goes: me, Austin Cooper, Drake Marcos, Ty Alexander, Kelly King, two new hunks who have bodybuilder physiques similar to Austin’s and another cute twinky boy or two. If you’re interested shoot me an email at, firstname.lastname@example.org but act fast, we have very limited time left to film any matches.
Expect another post FL blog filled with fun behind the scenes photos and hopefully stories of more shenanigans!
