For several years you worked as a manager for the WWF star, Nikolai Volkoff. How did you two meet?

 

I was working in the patrol division for the police department and there was a Sunday afternoon indie card at a recreation center in the area that I worked. I saw the advertisement poster in a local store. So being a tape collector at that time of old matches, I figured I would attempt to talk to Nikolai. Now I had never been to an indie show at that point, so I had no idea of what that world would be like.

Well when I walked in it was unusual from what I was used to seeing in the Baltimore Civic Center. But as I was there in uniform waiting, along comes Nikolai and he saw me in uniform and said "Hello sergeant." He went into the locker room and changed and came out for what I would learn is the ritual of selling photos before the card.

So we talked in between Nikolai greeting fans and exchanged information and from there a friendship emerged. Nikolai actually lived very close geographically to me and we were able to get together on a regular basis.

 

Any interesting stories or reflections from your time in the ring together?

 

You better believe it! Nikolai has a positive mental attitude and really is a true comedian. So the long hours on the road were made more bearable by being with someone that you want to be with.

One thing that we would do to keep ourselves occupied was to play games with the toll booth people. Like asking a booth operator "Are you married or happy?", the old Three Stooges line. Or asking if the job "Takes it toll on ya."

Then Nikolai would like to show people his balls. If you are in the business and have not seen Nikolai's balls then you are not truly a member of the fraternity. Of course I am talking about a magic trick, shame on you with dirty minds!

 


You also worked a "real job" per se with the Baltimore Police Department?

 

Correct, I retired as a detective sergeant after 27 years of service.

 

Is Baltimore as dangerous a city as some rumors have it?

 

I have nothing to gain or loose here, so I will give you a non political answer. Baltimore has gone to hell. It's a true life horror story. Between the drug infested neighborhoods, to the misguided, uninformed ultra liberals, to the political hacks it has led a once great city into near ruin.

The Freddie Gray case is an excellent example. Here is a case where police were actually instructed to increase drug enforcement in the area where the incident began. They did, they made an arrest and in the course of the transport the prisoner ended up dead. How his injury occurred is still not defined, there is only a theory behind the charges.

It is an unfortunate incident but to turn it into a murder case is way beyond comprehension. The riots that followed were a result of bad media reporting, notice how the headlines always like to stress no matter what the facts are, WHITE OFFICER shoots BLACK SUSPECT. Or in this case black suspect dies in police custody.

Are the police supposed to close their eyes if a suspect is black? Unless of course the officer involved is an African American. But that's not even true because of the Baltimore incident. It's a lot like the wrestling business. News is news entertainment. Ever hear the term "If it bleeds, it leads"? It's the same thing with wrestling, well the old style, the classic wrestling. "Red turns to green" when you bladed.

And now the police have been turned into the heels and the criminals the baby face because they are for whatever reason not responsible for this situation that they have been cast into and the police should not respond with force. Have you heard the rants of Bernie Sanders. He is what I describe as a white ultra liberal that is a phony, misinformed worker.

First, we are all liberals or we would be communists, not to be untrue to my gimmick, but that's a fact. It's the uneducated ultra liberals that are dangerous to society. They are marks for the money making leeches that play off of the division among us.

Do these people live in neighborhoods of color? No. Do they shop, eat or mingle there? Come on, talk to someone that walked and drove through those neighborhoods. The police are the ones that really care about quality of life. It's like Hillary & Sanders making a point of the number of people of color in jail. Well I ask, who are the victims in those cases? Answer-In a large majority other people of color.

The police departments are not those of the 60's or 70's. The racial and ethnic mix is just that a mix. There is no leader setting police loose on neighborhoods of color. Baltimore has the Vanguard Justice Society which serves African American officers. So to insinuate that police departments have institutional racism is misinformed and misguided.

If you stop and consider these true facts, when you have an accident, the police respond. I would say we are usually first on the scene of most house fires. Domestic violence and child abuse and sex crimes victims are all protected and avenged by police. And when our enemies come for us, all of us, black, white, all religions, the police are the first line of defense. The military cannot even defend themselves on their own bases.

I was in Internal Investigations for several years, so I know there are problems. Police recruit from the human race so you will never have a perfect world. But to paint the police as the villain and to pervert the minds of those that are misinformed is an atrocity. It's bad enough that we have the "Momma's Babies" out in the world demonstrating about everything and anything, but when the workers of these coddled wandering zombies inflame the problem, we have what is basically an unsafe environment.

It won't get better anytime soon. Let's look at this in your face, in the news example. It's like Trump. He has a following because people believe that he is a savior because he is not one of the political establishment. But he will never be the nominee because he is not favored by the ones that control the money in the world. I say world, not just the US. They fear the faucet will be shut off.

 


I imagine you could tell some really hairy true crime stories from your years there?

 

Too many, the job is not one that you can do and be everybody's friend. Someone is gonna end up unhappy. But you must do what is right, otherwise our society will cease to exist.

 

Foremost, however, is your shift to the film world? What brought this change?

 

Pro wrestling of course, while doing documentaries someone told me that those were acting credits. For me it didn't matter, I had no interest in acting. Then I was invited to do a film, called Terror in the Pharaoh's Tomb. That was the start, then I worked with Darren Aronofsky on pre production work for The Wrestler. Then gradually I started moving away from wrestling and into acting.

But I did have quite an acting background because as a police we would do the set security. So I worked on a multitude of projects over the years before I ever got into wrestling. Spending 8-12 hours on a movie/TV set, well you gotta stay alert of course, but you need to be occupied. You can't read, there were no hand held devices back then. So I watched and learned from the pros.

And I am talking super pros like Bruce Willis on Twelve Monkeys I watched, and I mean standing next to Jodie Foster as she directed Home For the Holidays, Holly Hunter, and a host of regulars and guests for Homicide: Life On The Street as that filmed in Baltimore. And of course the great Barry Levinson and John Walters.

 

You have recently worked on a film on human trafficking. Would you elaborate on the film?

 


The movie is called Brush with Danger and it's actually not about human trafficking directly, but does reflect some of the same problems. This movie is about a brother & sister that come to America looking for a better life, but they come here smuggled on a container ship and have no means of support. So what happens is they are taken in by an opportunist, and that equates to what human trafficking victims must endure when they are forced onto the streets to escape their living condition.

I personally have a script ready that deals more on the direct topic of violence against women and I am hoping to get that made into a movie. I tried the book version but it was too civil liability laden, so I changed the names to protect the innocent as Jack Webb used to say.

 

What were your functions in the making of this movie?

 

I was deeply involved. Aside from being one of the main characters I was also the casting director. That means I was involved in auditioning every person that we used in the movie. I also was on set daily assisting Livi, she is one of my closest friends in the world, so it's not just that I was doing that as a job, but helping my friend and for myself learning even more along the way.

I believe that you have to know what every aspect of a production is about to be the best that you can be at what you do. Like in wrestling, we should be in tune with what a referee does, etc.

 

Does the movie have any ties to your experiences or interests in working as a police officer?

 

Of course, my role is a detective sergeant, so my expertise came in handy. I was able to offer what real life is like for those living on the street and the dangers that they face.

 

Human trafficking is a major problem no one seems to want to talk about, wouldn't you say?

 

That is true. One reason is that there is a misconception that human trafficking is a woman being hit over the head and dragged away to be taken to a foreign land and sold as a sex slave. Well what we as a community deal with on a daily basis is runaways and women that flee abusive relationships that live on the street and are taken advantage of. People shrug it off as just prostitutes, like a person aspires to have that as a career. It's a victimization process that needs to be addressed. And people really don't want to be involved, they have their reasons, but we are fortunate that many do want to be involved.

 

Are you hoping the film calls more attention to the crime?

 

Yes I do. And the way the kids are portrayed and what they endure will help send that message.

 

Who starred in this?

 

Myself, Livi and Ken Zheng and Norman Newkirk. The film was Oscar eligible, NOT NOMINATED! There is a huge difference, yet it was a great accomplishment for Livi in directing her first movie.

 

Is there a webpage where readers may find out more about the film?

 

Yes, Brushwithdanger.com.

Facebook has a page too or my Facebook page or Google it.

There was nothing unusual about the filming of it. But I will say this, Seattle, as a city is also a co-star because we shot on location. We didn't use establishing shots of Seattle and film in LA. We did film a lot in LA, but what you see as the streets of Seattle is reality.

 

Closing comments?

 

I want to thank you for giving me the opportunity to put my career information out to the public. Every time, every interview is another page of who we are and lets people know what we are. Keep wrestling alive people, the indies are all that's left of the old ways. The big production, well good for them. But the grass roots of what pro wrestling was is being done on the indie level. Don't let that word throw you. Indie is not subservient or diminished, it just means, smaller budget, not smaller heart!

 

Thanks for the interview!
