ONE HALF OF THE FLATLINERS
"SICK" NICK MONDO
Because I am talking about... MATT BURNS!!!
MATT BURNS!!! is an indy wrestler (real name: "Sick" Nick Byrne (fun fact: "Sick" Nick Mondo's real name, as seen above - Matt Burns)) working for Legend City Wrestling out of St. John's, Newfoundland, but more importantly, he posts at the GSB/POW, where I've been going since I was 15 (which scares me because I am now a growned-up).
I should probably explain the caps and exclamation marks...
Picture STEVE HOLT as a wrestler:
MATT BURNS!!!'s gimmick, essentially, is pointing and shouting his own name, a la Steve Holt. Although he doesn't don the letterman jacket or the dopey, son-of-Gob (spoiler? ... oops) expression, he does shout his own name like a CHAMP. Check it out:
I really think this would get over with any live crowd, it's pretty friggin' ingenious. I'll post an update with a match of his in the near future, once a recent one goes up on YouTube. I'm definitely excited to see anything new from him, since he's only been wrestling for about a year and a half, and the only full match he has online right now is one from a year ago.
If you want to check out more of MATT BURNS!!!, here's what you can do:
And finally, LCW will be doing a short tour of Eastern Canada in May. If you're in the area, try and make it out to see MATT BURNS!!! All of these events feature Highlander Robbie McAllister! And Kurrgan. Maybe. But more importantly, MATT BURNS!!!
