Q: When did you become a wrestling fan and how?
Monster Mack: My Dad watched it when I was a kid, we used to get all the PPV’s and I really started to get into it.
Trainee #1: I grew up with my family already big wrestling fans, so I’ve always watched as far back as I can remember.
Q: Where did you grow up?
MM: I grew up in Normandy France, but I now live in Massachusetts.
T#1: South East Mass, Fall River to be exact.
Q: Who were your favorites growing up?
MM: Some of my favorites were Mic Foley, Hulk Hogan, La Parka and Vader.
T#1: Everyone loved Hogan when they were kids, I’m no exception, as I got older I started diggin the smaller guys more though. It’s hard not to like guys like Michaels, Gurrero, Jericho and Malekino.
Q: Did you attend wrestling shows when you were a kid?
MM& T#1: All the time, we were lucky, WWF, the original ECW and all kinds of indy promotions ran in the city all the time, we’ve been going to shows forever
Q: What is your favorite wrestling match
MM: That’s going to be a tough one since I have a horrible memory, but I’m going to have to go with Rob Van Dam and Jerry Lynn, Living Dangerously 1999
T#1: Of all time? Damn, I’d have to go with Flair and Michaels at WrestleMania 24, cause even after all this time they had me sucked right in.
Q: What is your favorite event?
MM: Royal Rumble easily because we all gamble on it, good times and good friends.
T#1: I’m a big fan of pretty much every Royal Rumble and I was always a fan of ECW’s first PPV, Barely Legal.
Q: First impressions of the business when you were training?
MM: I always had a lot of friends who wrestled so it’s always been a good time hanging out with my buddys getting to meet new people,
T#1: Tough, mentally and physically, people have no idea what goes into putting on a good match, never mind what it takes to have a good show.
Q: How has life been on the Independent Scene?
MM: Overall pretty good, I’m a friendly guy so I pretty much get along with every buddy. I enjoy traveling so it’s nice to go on road trips with my buddys, my homies, my dogs.
T#1: life is filled with drama, pro wrestling is no different, I on the other hand try to keep everything positive all the time so it’s nothing but smiles and sunshine.
Q: Who are some of the notable names you have wrestled?
MM&T#1: We’ve worked with alot of talented guys, but some of our favorites were Jalil Salaam, Gregory Edwards, Scott Levesque, and it’s always fun when to work with our boy Scotty Jive. Wrestling has allowed us to branch off into other forms of entertainment, we’ve worked with some top notch people on that end too. McNastee, www.McNastee.com, is probably one of my favorite people we’ve done business with. He and a group called Edifide have both made custom songs for us plus right now we’re working on signing another top name in the underground horrorcore world to make an appearance on The Monster Mack Show.
Q: Do you believe kayfabe is dead?
MM: I still think it’s alive to an extent, I mean I’d like to hope so, without some sort of kayfabe there is no pro wrestling.
T#1: I think that it still exists, just not to the degree it used to be. With the internet it’s hard to keep anything secret, that’s why I go out of my way to make sure that I don’t put on or take off my mask if there are people in the locker room or backstage that aren’t supposed to be there, without the element of mystery there’s no point.
Q: Any TV/Media appearances:
MM: I was on the front page of the Herald News in my city for my work with children, it was pretty cool to pick up a paper and see my beautiful face looking back at me.
T#1: a few popular websites have shown us some love, especially www.Faygoluvers.net, they’re probably the top juggalo news site online and they’ve had a few Mack and Trainee updates. Plus Swami, an online radio show host at CyberstationUSA.com has had us on at least 5 times.
Q: What are your future plans?
MM: We have our new season of The Monster Mack Show coming out this year as well as a full length Monster Mack documentary called “Mack Attack:The Mack-u-mentary” narrated by underground hip hop artist McNastee
T#1: and more wrestling, we’re always looking for new places to travel to do what we love to do
Q: When and where was your last match and what was the result?
MM: I lost to Johnny Primer in a no DQ match for the PWA, we brawled all over the building but my thumbtack ploy backfired.
T#1: I took on Ali for the PWA in Maine and took the win, although Monster Mack did have the most entertaining match of the night.
Q: When is the next show you are working?
MM&T#1: We have a few dates all over New England that we haven’t announced yet, so remember to check out www.MonsterMack.net for all our future updates!
