New Jack was a FAVORITE of mine watching ECW. I loved that his matches were pure unpredictably dangerous energy. I remember one of the first things I saw from ECW in general was him diving off a balcony, I wasn’t seeing that on WWF. You never knew what he was going to do. I’m pretty sure that if you had asked me when I was like 13 years old I would have included him in a top 5 haha! Wrestling him was a great experience, people may not believe it due to his reputation, but I learned a lot from him in those 10 minutes. He is a tough and scary individual, but it was all worth it in the end. Plus, it was a triple threat with Matt Tremont who is one of my best friends in this business while benefitting an injured Lowlife Louie Ramos, another best friend. I spent Christmas with these two!. I highly recommend checking that match out, On Point Wrestling did something special there.
6. Also you wrestle for Nova Pro Wrestling in Virginia who are growing with every show, what are your thoughts on NOVA Pro so far and do you think their shows will get better and better next year??
NOVA is awesome. They don’t use me regularly, but I enjoy kind of being that once in a while guy, it almost feels special, like Abdullah the Butcher back in his day. Also, since I am not at every show I get to see them grow in leaps and bounds. I did their first show, and it was solid but there were little things they could work on. I did their most recent show and it was night and day. From the locker room to the energy from the crowd, hell, even to the size of the crowd. NOVA is awesome and it’ll be fun to watch them continue to grow. Lets hope they don’t forget me as they grow!
7. Of course the blog is called TheBritishWrestlingRevival, would you ever come over here in the future if given the chance especially considering CZW does yearly tours over here and if so who would you want to face??
I would absolutely love to. I love travelling outside the US, and I haven’t been able to do it since 2012 (not wrestling related). I’m a big fan of old school British wrestling, believe it or not, I have a stack of Johnny Saint dvds. I don’t follow as much now, but I love everything I’ve seen from PROGRESS. Whether it was PROGRESS, CZW, or anywhere, I would love to get in the ring with Jimmy Havoc. I also wouldn’t mind doing a weird styles clash mix up with someone like Nathan Cruz.
8. What are your ambitions and goals in Wrestling and what do you want to achieve within 5 years would you say??
My goal was always CZW and to be in the Tournament of Death, as well as some other bigger tournaments such as IWA MS’s King of the Death Match. I’ve accomplished all of that this year so looking forward, I want to win at least one major tournament. The biggest of them all, TOD, but I want to bring some trophies home in the next few years. I also want to travel. I’ve never been to the west coast with wrestling, I want to do that. Of course, internationally, I just want to sit on a plane knowing that wherever I am going, it is thanks to wrestling.
9. Where can the readers find Jeff Cannonball on Social Media and where can promoters book you if they wish to do so??
I’ve got a twitter and instagram, both @jeffcannonball. I am very active on instagram and I am working on being better at twitter. Though, Twitter is where you will see me post about merchandise and upcoming dates the most. Speaking of merchandise, check out www.ridethefury.bigcartel.com, it is a buddy of mine who does some cool things with music and enamel pins who also lets me put up my shirts, dvds, and whatever else I sell online. You can find me on facebook at Jeff Guerriero (Jeff Cannonball). Unfortunately, facebook decided “Cannonball” wasn’t a real enough last name and they forced me to go back to the name Guerriero. But I’m active on there, as well. You can book me through that page, or any social media. Or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
10. Have you got any future dates or projects you wish to plug??
Sure, I’ve got very limited quantities remaining of my two current shirts, a long sleeve and a reprint. This is the only design I’ve ever reprinted so once those two are gone, they’re gone. Both at www.ridethefury.bigcartel.com. Check my facebook and twitter for all upcoming dates. And who knows, maybe I’ll accomplish another goal June 10 at CZW’s Tournament of Death, people travel for that show, join them. Thank you for having me.
I hope you enjoyed this interview and I would like to thank Jeff for answering the questions for you to read, please go and support him on social media if possible!
