I Hate Mickie Knuckles

Way back in the infancy of RESISTANCE Pro, when Jacques and I were putting together our initial talent roster, the first name out of my mouth was Mickie Knuckles. While several now-famous names worked BLACK FRIDAY, the one I wanted the most to be there wasn’t....

Be a Dick

The difference between RESISTANCE Pro and other independent wrestling promotions is we genuinely love our fans and appreciate their loyalty. For example, if you come to our shows, you’ve probably seen (or more likely heard) DICK GRIFFITHS from his seat in the...

St. Sammy’s Day

I’m not Irish. I don’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. For someone who grew up in the Mount Greenwood neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, that’s like being an alien. Whatever. I don’t celebrate any other nationality’s holidays...

‘Tis the Season

Every January – usually just after we’ve all taken down our holiday decorations – “wrestling season” kicks in to high gear. Football is nearly over with, hockey and basketball fans have decided wether their teams are worth continuing to...

Eggbert

2011 was a year that had more effect on me than I could ever possibly know. Not only was it the year that we started RESISTANCE Pro and embarked on this crazy journey, but it was one of tremendous loss as well. While losing my job in the auto industry was a financial...

The Melting Pot

Way back in 1994, I entered Saint Xavier University here in Chicago with a hope and a dream – to get my own radio show on their student run station WXAV 88.3FM. I was madly in love with music (as I still am) and wanted to bring all the great kinds of heavy metal...

Anything You Can Do…

“Please take my hand. I give it to you as a gesture of friendship and love, and of faith freely given. I give you my hand and welcome you into my dream.” -Wonder Woman #167 Boys have it easy. They get all the cool superheroes like Captain America, Batman,...

Sarah’s Story

ALL THE COLORS OF THE DARK on Saturday March 21st at SPARK Recreation Center is a fundraiser for “Hairs to Sarah” benefitting our friend Sarah Walczak. This is her story: When Sarah was born she was a healthy little girl. She was in a hurry to enter this...

No Obligation

As a “thank you” to our fans – and as an appetizer to those who have yet to check us out – we proudly present the entire ANIMALS event FREE on our YouTube channel RealRESISTANCEpro. In stunning HD quality, this show is the first step in the...

Louder Than Words

On January 17th, RESISTANCE Pro began it’s “New Era” with ANIMALS at VFW Post 6863 in suburban Summit, IL. It was – to myself and brother/partner Jacques – the most important show in the history of the company. Not to say there...

ANIMALS – updated venue and charity info!

Tomorrowland

Guest Blogger: “Special Dark” Suge D I woke up today after what you’d call “a little partying”. By a little partying, that’d be a Lionel Ritchie AKA “Dancing On The Ceiling” pretty much “All Night Long”...

ESV Christmas

Guest Blogger: Eric St. Vaughn (one-half of RESISTANCE Pro Tag Team Champions BODY MAGIC) As a kid I think we all at some point have that ONE big present you’re hoping to get for Christmas… For me it was CASTLE GRAYSKULL! When I was just a little “Personal Trainer To...

Christmas Eve

My favorite, most vivid childhood memory of Christmas always revolves around Christmas Eve. When we were kids, we used to go to our paternal grandparents house to celebrate on the 24th. Dad was usually working at least part of the day – Mom sometimes, too...

Faith

George Michael said it best when he said “You gotta’ have faith…” so many years ago. Faith is what makes us human. It gives us hope, comforts us when we’re down, and gives us a goal to work towards. Whether you believe in a “higher...

You mean… they’re real people?!?

One of the coolest things about the people of RESISTANCE Pro is not what they do inside the ring or at shows, but what they do on their own time. Whether it’s an interesting hobby, skill, or job everyone within the company has something unique that makes them...

True Heroes

When RESISTANCE Pro was able to perform at Taft School District 90 in Lockport for …AND JUSTICE FOR ALL on November 7th, it was done for two reasons. One was to put on our 3rd Anniversary celebration in the town where R-Pro is based out of, and the other was to...

Are they like this all the time?

Just a slice of “real life” for you as R-Pro stars MAD MAN PONDO and CRAZY MARY DOBSON clown around with “Rocky Horror Picture Show” star Dr. Frank N. Furter at Days of the Dead on Saturday November 22nd, 2014. There’s a lot more photos...

Why Wrestling for the Baron Brothers?

At …AND JUSTICE FOR ALL last month, a reporter interviewed us for a local paper regarding our third anniversary. There were a fair amount of questions asked that have become routine – when did you first start to watch wrestling, what do your wives and...

Thanksgiving might be the best holiday on the calendar

Don’t get me wrong – I absolutely adore Christmas. I always have. But the days leading up to the big day are infinitely more enjoyable, especially Christmas Eve. Once December 25 hits, there’s that feeling in the pit of your stomach that the world...
