X-Cal interviewed by SK Fulton
S. Fulton-So how are you doing tonight?
X-Cal-Iīm doing pretty good.
S.F.-Ok, I want to talk a little bit about the ICF, because I donīt think a lot a people know about it, and it would be good for them to know what went on. You were part of a group known as The Violence Alliance, which consisted of yourself, Chaz and CBC, tell us little about that group.
X-Cal-Basically we were bad guys, we were heels, and we would go out and, well be violent. Thatīs the best way I can describe it. Iīm not really remembering things from the backyard that well, but those days were fun, they were good. CBC has actually started the class and later we hope to bring in Chaz.
S.F.-A guy by the name of Criminal X joined the group and captured the Heavyweight title and you subsequently left the group due to differences with him.
X-Cal-We never could see eye to eye, either in the ring or out. We never got along that well.
S.F.-Then you went and started a group called Legacy.
X-Cal-That was The New Legacy.
S.F.-Excuse me, The New Legacy with Raginī Madness and Guile Cash, who is Shane Morbid now. The New Legacy went on to take the tag team titles, were you one of the ones who held the titles?
X-Cal-Yes, it was myself and Shane Morbid, formally known as Guile Cash. We won the belts from a group called The Brotherhood of Brutality.
S.F.-What singles belts did you hold?
X-Cal-I held the Inter-federation tile which basically represented all the backyard feds in Oklahoma at the time. There were people from Tisamingo, Halleyville, all over.
S.F.-Iīve seen some of the backyard tapes that are on the market, what made the ICF different, because there are four guys from that here, and two more on the way, you all left the backyard and your now professional wrestlers, so what was it that made you guys different?
X-Cal-Iīd have to give all the credit to Justin Lee and The Outcast. They didnīt want it to be like every other backyard fed out there, filled with nothing but hardcore garbage wrestling. They liked to keep it clean as much as possible and make it look like an indy fed. We got a big break in July of 2001, the OPW training class gave us a try out and about six guys signed up that night, including Justin and Outcast. The two that shined the most was them and theyīve been with them ever since.
S.F.-A short time ago you finally made your debut in the OCW ring. You had some nice showings against D-Day and now youīve teamed up with Tyler Bateman. You two have the potential to become a really great tag team but you just canīt seem to get on the same page.
X-Cal-I donīt want to comment on that too much, but letīs just say that Tyler needs to get a little better aim with those kicks, because Iīm tired of him kicking me in the head every week.
S.F.-He is the man who currently holds the light-heavyweight title and a lot of people see you as heir to the throne so to speak. Any thought about going after his belt?
X-Cal-When I first got in that was my main goal, and he was champion at the time, I wanted that title. But since weīve teamed up I really havenīt thought about it too much. I donīt know, maybe down the road we can go toe to toe.
S.F.-Any thought about going after the tag team titles, they are currently vacant?
X-Cal-We havenīt discussed it really. Weīre just trying to get into our groove, it doesnīt seem to be working, but who knows what the future will bring.
S.F.-Whoīs been your toughest opponent so far?
X-Cal-Thatīs real hard to say, but Iīd have to go with The Heat Seekers against Tyler and myself. I got pretty banged up that match. I had a welt on my chest from a chop Rick Styles gave me. He gave me a spike pile driver as well that almost broke my collar bone. My knee got hurt on his head from a bronco buster that went kind of wrong, so Iīd have to say them.
S.F.-Well that just about does it, thank you for your time.
