Krimsynn's Beyond the Ring #1

Captain's Log: Friday, February 10, 20...wait, that's the Star Trek intro isn't it?? 😋

Let's start over, on Friday, February 10, around 9 p.m. I was in panic mode. No, not because I was nervous about my match, but because I couldn't find my darn knee wraps and knee pads! After searching for an hour, I finally found them. Whew!!! I needed to keep the knee injuries to minimum. 

By the time Saturday afternoon hit, I started my hour and half drive from Liberty to Sandersville. I'm sure most wrestlers do this on the long road trips by themselves: think about that night's match, and how they can give the fans what they paid for. Well, any wrestler worth a crap would, anyway. My opponent for the night, Barry Wolf, was a ring vet that I had faced 4 times already the past 2 years. 3 singles matches and 1 tag. Saturday night's match would also be a singles match. We are of similar height, but I'm sure I outweigh him, not that it means much in this line of work. He's always, been a tough opponent for me and is well respected in the locker room. My personal opinion is that he is extremely underrated. I've always enjoyed our previous matches and I was sure that this one would be a good one as well. It's always a great feeling knowing you are facing someone that you can work well with in the ring. In the back of my mind, I knew it would be an easy night. 

When I arrived at the gym, half of the roster was already there. It warmed my heart to see the other guys that I'd known in the business for the past 16 years. Wait, I've been doing this SIXTEEN YEARS? No wonder I hurt all the time! starts and 7 and I'm in the first match. The nervousness is on me big time. Crap. I hate when that happens. You'd think that after 16 years, I wouldn't get nervous, but I do before every match. There's the Star Spangled Banner, almost that time. 

The announcer says, "Introducing, KRIMMMMSSSSYNNNNN!!!!!! My music hits, I come out and the's the hell out of me. YES!!!!!!! We're off to a great start!! I forgot to mention that the last time I wrestled here, I wrestled Barry, AND I was a heel. Barry comes out, and the crowd loves him, we already have them eating out of the palms of our hands!!

The match starts with some back and forth between us and me making the crowd want to see me get my butt kicked. I took a punch to the face that burst a blood vessel in my eye, but that's all part of the game. We traded body slams, leg drops, punches, kicks, and suplexes before I hit a back suplex and rolled him up and pulled his tights for the 1-2-3 (old school heel move). However, Barry and the crowd convinced the ref to negate my win and he beat me with a schoolboy pin. I pray that there is a rematch. 

I drove back toward Hattiesburg, heading to Hooters (always my post-match meal for wrestling and Sigmar, no matter what town I'm in) to meet my cousin and relax. Sore and bruised I was , but that night we had our favorite waitress and the food was on point.

Good, good match. Always a good one with Barry. Always. Now I have to prepare for my first title defense of my Gulf South Wrestling Tag Team Championship in a few weeks.

I'm currently a tag champion in 2 promotions (Gulf South Wrestling and PowerSlam Productions). I need to take a promo pic holding both belts, but that's another story for another time. I'll have to update you guys on that title defense match.
