â€The Natural Oneâ€ Michael Modest. Mainstream wrestling fans know him as the kid from “Beyond the Mat” who had a dark match on WWF Television during the peak of the wrestling boom. NOAH fans remember him as a hard-hitting gai-jin and a lot of his matches with tag partner Donovan Morgan. Bay Area wrestling fans, specially APW elitists, see him as a â€œWrestling Godâ€, no disrespect to JBL.
Wrestlewarehouse.com presents the first in itâ€™s series of brand new shoot interviews, a sit down interview with â€œThe Natural Oneâ€ Michael Modest, conducted by Rubber Guard Radio host Kid Zombie. KZ and Wrestle Warehouse take Mike down memory lane, covering his entire career from A-Z up until now for two hours and forty five minutes.
Early on, Mike talks about how he got into wrestling in due part to his uncle and how he was attracted to the legendary Ray â€œThe Cripplerâ€ Stevens up to his first match as an enhancement talent, putting over Koko B. Ware of all people, at age 18. â€œPlayboyâ€ Buddy Rose is revealed as the first guy Mike ever worked who actually listened to him and did the moves that he wanted, until he got punched right in the nose. And Wrestling is supposed to be fakeâ€¦ right?
