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.

Fun in the sun

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!   

Superbowl Sunday & The Challenger 2!

Deflate this

I don’t think the ball deflation thing¬†is a big deal at all. I think if it were any other team this wouldn’t be¬†a story whatsoever. The fact that the nation has been talking about the Patriot’s balls for the past two weeks is ridiculous.¬†Let’s talk about the game instead.

Patriots 30 – Seattle 21

I think Seattle’s schedule this year was a joke. They struggled a bit early on (as did the Patriots) but the media and Seattle fan base keeps saying the defense really came alive at the end of the year. Oh really? It sure did, I’m sure it’s tough keeping Drew Stanton (backup, Arizona), Colin Kapernick (starter, SF), Mark Sanchez (backup Philadelphia), Ryan Lindley (backup, Arizona), Logan Thomas (rookie backup, Arizona) and Shaun Hill (backup St. Louis) out of the end zone. Kepernick is the only starter in the group and he’s not exactly an accurate passer or great decision maker. The point being is the 0-16 Detroit Lion team (fun fact, Drew Stanton was on that team), could’ve picked up at least one win against this stellar group of quarterbacks that Seattle has faced. To be fair, Seattle has had two good wins all season. Week one against Green Bay and week three against Denver. They did lose to San Diego, Dallas, St. Louis and KC this season. To get to the superbowl they had to beat a team with a losing record (Carolina) and in my opinion, the best team in the NFC, the Green Bay Packers. If Aaron Rogers was playing healthy, Seattle wouldn’t have won¬†that game. By my count still just TWO impressive wins all year.

The Patirots schedule had me worried at the beginning of the season. Turns out, they were a lot better than I thought. Ugly loss to Miami in week one, the next loss to KC (KC fans must be pissed they beat both teams in the SB), Green Bay and the last game against Buffalo (resting so many players basically made this a glorified bye week). NE had a brutal stretch of games from week 4 on till the end of the season. KC is no joke, Cincinnati looked like the real deal at the time (once the Pats put up 43 on them it brought them back to earth), Buffalo and the Jets might not be good teams but those defensive lines are exactly what foils the Pats (see the NYG superbowls), Chicago (not so tough, scary WRs though), Denver (smacked Manning down 43-21), Indy, Detroit, Green Bay, San Diego, Miami (not all around good but still has a better QB than Seattle played down the stretch) and closing out with the Jets and the BIlls. They¬†beat up on a lot of those teams outside of the loss to Green Bay (26-21 thanks to that TD right before halftime), they not only beat, but manhandled most of those teams. To get to the superbowl the Pats had to get by the next best team in the AFC at that time of year at least, the Baltimore Ravens, and they had to embarrass the Colts…. again. I think it was impressive smacking down Denver and Detroit, beating SD, and the Ravens. That’s at least 4 quality wins, I’d say beating Indy twice should add two more to the total but those games were so out of hand it’s tough to justify it.

As far as the big game, I think New England’s offense can match up and put up points against Seattle’s defense. If NE is able to contain and negate Marshawn Lynch they win the game, luckily BB is able to constantly negate the¬†oppositions best weapon. Russell Wilson is a good young QB but I don’t think you can expect him to put the game on his shoulders and throw against Revis, Browner & McCourty, especially with the average group of WRs he has. Those guys are playmakers, and we’ve all seen Wilson throw ugly picks when up against a D that’s good in coverage. For the Pats, Blount and Gronk are the keys to victory. Seattle’s been run on this year, they gave up 100 yards in both playoff games and 6 times during the regular season including all 4 of their losses. In those other games they’ve been lights out against the run, but again like the QBs they’ve played, not much competition against elite RBs here. They’ve also struggled against TE’s, at least ones with decent skills (Antonio Gates torched them in the SD loss, and Witten gave them fits in the Cowboys loss). They’ll be facing the best in the league against Gronk, I fully expect to see some Gronk spikes in the end zone this Sunday.

With two weeks to prep I think BB and #12 have an answer for anything Seattle wants to do defensively. Sherman doesn’t move from his side of the field that much, so you can scheme around that. I’d like to see them toss Gronk out there for a few and see how physical Sherman¬†wants to get against somebody capable of “throwing him out of the club”. I expect to see a lot of motion from the Pats, probably stack up the WRs on one side with Gronk in the slot, that should help the WRs get open. I really don’t expect Seattle to ever have the lead, call me crazy but the Patriots are going to be in control of this game from start to finish. I think a lot of drives will end in FGs though, which is why the score is as close as it is. I think that if Seattle gives the Pats 3 redzone chances like they did the Packers, NE comes away with at least one TD. Seattle’s definitely a good team, and they have the talent¬†to win this game, defensively they can give the Pat’s a hard time¬†with the pass rush, and their outstanding secondary. The Legion of Boom is what makes Seattle great. I just think a healthy Gronk makes all the difference in the world. I also expect Julian Edelman to do something awesome, because he is awesome. SB win #4 for the Patriots, Tom Brady will be the greatest QB to ever play the game and there will be one very happy Jonny Firestorm.

Now onto Firestorm stuff. My diet hasn’t got off to a good start so I’ve basically delayed it till after the Superbowl. I would be doing good for a couple days and then fall off the wagon and then it’s impossible to diet during a Patriots game.

If you’re a member of BG East’s Arena you’ve been treated to some of the photos of my upcoming match against Christopher Bruce! I won’t post any photos of the match yet because it hasn’t been released but here are some portraits of the two of us from the bout.

  

It’s always fun for me to look back on matches and see how far I’ve progressed since then. I was younger, leaner, still skilled but lacked the real heel mean streak I have now. I remember being so impressed by Chris Bruce, he had been around the block at BG so I knew all about his reputation. Still to this day, I’m a big Chris Bruce fan.

I did a lot of filming last week (15 1/2 hours), mostly for custom match orders but also a couple matches for the Firestorm site. I just released one of the matches, scroll down to see more about that. I’ve also increased the quality and the video size for the VODs (new ones, not the old ones), so you should be seeing me as intended, bigger & better.

I have absolutely no travel plans as of right now. That can change at a moments notice.¬†I’m a little behind on emails but I should be all caught up by the end of the day today.

My gear collection is running low, anybody want to send me something that I would wear in upcoming videos? I could use some speedos (small and medium) and singlets (medium), International Jock has some cool stuff on sale now. I’ve noticed some of you don’t care for the black speedos. With my big project taking up most of my time and resources, buying new gear isn’t at the top of my list. Speaking of the big project, I’m about half way done with it. I’m expecting to debut it in mid February.

Now for the next VOD announcement, The Challenger 2: Jonny Firestorm vs. Riley is now up in the VOD download section. Riley is a rookie to the underground wrestling scene but he’s a very talented pro. When I issued the open challenge for anybody to step in the ring with me, he was one of the very first people to respond. It’s taken some time to set up but we finally locked horns last week and he did not disappoint. He’s cunning, technically sound and deceptively strong. The photos don’t reflect how even the match is but it’s a total 50/50 back and forth bout that ends in a submission.

 

That’ll do it for now. Go Pats!

 

PS. Check out this “year end award” that I won for my work on POV 1 – La Sustancia.¬†Thanks Jose, and I hope I can continue to innovate, entertain and tantalize you and the rest of my fans in 2015!
