Brian Da Brain
What is your favorite thing/things about design about wrestling and designing?
Brian Da Brain – My favorite thing about designing wrestling graphic art is people reacting the same way I did when I came up with the idea. I have this vision in my head of what I think would look cool for a poster or cover art or whatever and I just make it. When people respond with the same positivity as I did when I made it, it warms my heart.
The same thing goes for any other project I do for work or for practice. My goal is to have people see the same vision I do in my head. I love to communicate some sort of message in my graphic design work and it’s even better when people pick up on that message.
What are some of your favorite things you have designed?
Brian Da Brain – Of course the BOLA cards which completely changed things for me. My other top pick pick would be my Mystery Vortex III poster. I’m so proud it came out the way it did. That got a lot of praise by people too. When I saw the subtitle of “Rock and Shock the Nation” I immediately recognized the lyrics from “Da’ Mystery of Chess Boxing” by Wu-Tang Clan and then the idea of the poster built from there.
When did you first meet with PWPonderings and start working with them?
Brian Da Brain – May 25, 2012. That was the day of PWG’s Death to All but Metal. Jerome and Chris said they were flying-in for the show. I listened to their podcasts on the regular and reached out to them. I e-mailed about possibly being the PWG/LA representative. We met at the show. They trusted me enough to podcast on my first night in. Everything went smoothly and I joined PWP from their.

When did you know were The King of Taunts?
David Starr – I came up with the nickname and style organically while I was a part of Juicy Product. It stuck and I really enjoy doing it.
What is your favorite aspect/aspects of wrestling and cats?
David Starr – What a combination haha. I like the art and emotionally draw from wrestling. It can really tug at your heartstrings. Cats are awesome because they are difficult to crack, but once they love you they show it and it’s adorable. They are independent and they are hilarious.
How would you describe your wrestling style?
David Starr – A hybrid of everything
How was least favorite thing about mustard?
David Starr – The fact that it’s the spawn of Satan. That’s probably the worst thing about it.
Will the world ever know the meaning of #JML?
David Starr – If you don’t know, then you don’t know.

What is your favorite part of running wrestling promotions?
Denver Colorado- i love when we put together a complicated angle and the performers nail the timing and the fans lose their mind.
When did you come with the change of tag line Craft Wrestling?
Denver Colorado – Within the last year when WWE started using guys that weren’t under contract. Tumi independent wrestling means independent of a corporation or a contract. In that way NXT is independent wrestling since they are featuring guys that are not signed. So then I thought what makes Beyond wrestling different than NXT. We are an artisanal wrestling promotion. Small batch specialty professional wrestling
Like a craft beer
How would you describe your two Tournament for Today’s you running?
Denver Colorado – Rather than focusing on up-and-coming athletes we’re focusing on the best 8 men’s wrestlers and 8 women’s wrestlers that we already work with.
Where did you get the idea to book Keith Lee vs Zack Sabre Jr?
Denver Colorado – Both guys have been asking for it and I think we teased it on Twitter once and it got a lot of activity.
