Cyanide Interview



12 August 2003

Wrestling 101 UK Scene RSS Feed | Feeds

Cyanide is a young 17 year old pro wrestler, that started his pro career in the Chris Curtis run GBH promotion in Staffordshire. This young lion is hot for success and will not stop till he finds it. Cyanide whose real name happens to be Wesley Coburn has recently joined the up and coming promotion B.X.W. Look to hear a lot more about Cyanide as he battles on to make a name for himself in British wrestling.

First off can you tell the readers a little about yourself?

I am cruiserweight wrestler, I started wrestling for GBH and have left since and have started to work for a number of promotions and am in touch with a lot of others.

You wanted to get in to wrestling from a young age, was the wrestling biz anything you imagined it to be?

It is nothing like I expected to be. I expected it to be painful, but its much more painful than I expected it to be. I didnít expect all the politics either.

Where were you trained, and who was your trainer/trainers?

Dean Allmark and Robbie Dynamite trained me at the GBH Camp Of Pain.

How long from you being trained, did it take for you to get your first pro match?

I took me about 3 1/2 months. I was told I would be in a survivor tag and had about 3 weeks to prepare, so I would say 4 months.

Now you started off in GBH, which is in Stoke On Trent, how did you find things up there in that particular promotion?

At first I thought it was fantastic, I had a place to learn to become a professional wrestler and everyone was friendly with me there. I was tempted to leave and go home when I first saw the place they trained, it was a complete dump. I thought I had travelled this far I might as well give it a go. It went from there really.

Are there any other promotions you have worked for?

Yeah, I have worked for Wildcat Promotions and Brawl-Midlands, GBH and I am working on the BXW show tomorrow night. I am Debuting on 7th April for K-Star wrestling also.

Now I understand you have left GBH, what made you want to leave, and are there any plans to join another promotion?

It all started off when GBH got a bad show review, Chris started shooting his mouth off about it over the net and banning people who review the shows from coming, and inviting ones who would give it good ones thatís where Matt Violent came in. Matt gave each show a review like it was a 5 star show all around, hyping up things that were untrue i.e. Samson Horn the UKís most dangerous worker. Saying things like that will stop him from getting bookings, would you book someone who was dangerous? There you go. All of that was getting me and the rest of us bad names. On top of that I was paying £10 a week to train in a garage that was dirty, cold and damp. When someone wanted to put a car at the back of it, training was stopped and the mats were moved for them to do it. When it rained the rain came through the roof and dripped all over place including the mats, they were so wet that I was doing rolls and slipping on my head nearly, never mind all the other stuff we did like moves. If we didnít train he would not book us for the next show, so we had no choice but to train there to get on the shows. I couldnít get to any other place to train so I had no choice. At the shows he was playing politics as well, asking a certain wrestler to go into the other locker room and call him all the names under the sun and tell him what they all said about him. To the wrestlers credit he said no. It was like the final straw at the December show and I left of my own will and others followed suit.

Talking of promotions, I hear your working the BXW show, which is owned by Iceman & Lee Butler, which starts off in Nottingham on March 23rd. Can you tell us a little about your match up on that particular show?

I am in a Four-Way Dance against Rob McKay, and I canít remember whom else right now. Its Robís first time in the ring as a professional tomorrow night and I think itís the others as well. Itís billed as a pay your dues match, so I shall be handing out a lot of punishment J

Do you think BXW will be around for a long or a short time?

I think it will be around for a long time. The show is being promoted a whole lot with ads going in the paper and posters being put around and 5000 leaflets will be handed out a week before the show, It has the talent and a lot of workers have offered to work on the show so I am glad to be a part of it. I cannot see why it will not succeed.

What has been your most memorable moment in your career?

I donít have a memorable moment to be honest.

On the subject of memorable moments, could you tell us what, as been your worst moment in your career?

After what had happened with me at GBH I am sorry I stayed as long as I did, maybe if I left sooner I might not have lost interest in professional wrestling, but I did. My interest has come back and I am loving wrestling at this current moment. If I didnít work Wildcat

Earlier this month and meet Maddog, Rob Hunter and Carl Mizzery, It would be my last match after BXW in professional wrestling. At least till I re-found interest.

Which wrestler did you grow up watching and wanting to be?

I grew up watching Bret Hart, Shawn Michaels and Owen Hart. I was always wanted to be Shawn Michaels.

Were you a fan of British wrestling as a child?

No, by the time I was old enough to take notice of it was already taken off the TV and I never went to any wrestling shows.

Who has been your inspiration during your career?

My inspiration was Rob Van Dam until I started watching Japanese wrestling and I started to notice Dragon Kid, Tiger Mask and others that have inspired me. I am a cruiserweight wrestler and my current fave is Kenta Kobashi and he is a heavyweight, usually people like wrestlers in the current weight category.

Any last comments you wish to make before I wrap up this interview?

I hope you have enjoyed reading this interview and to see what the latest in my career is go to http://www.cyanide.2ya.com. Thanks for doing this interview with me Aaron and I will see you all soon.

On a last note, I just want to say thank you very much for your time, and on a last note, just would like to say that I will see you at the BXW show in Nottingham on the 23rd of March, as if you didn't know I am the commissioner of BXW, and I will be keeping an eye on you to make sure you stick to the rules in your match. Good luck for the future and I look forwarded to meeting you on the 23rd of March.

Aaron Spencer
