The first time I laid eyes on Kid Karisma, I knew he was going to be a star.
I happened to be in Denver at the same time as the BGEast crew, and so they asked me to spend an evening working in front of the cameras. I never said no when they asked. I was supposed to be taking on a big brute named Red Baron.
I was all, oh, hell, yeah. Bring it on, bitch.
There was also supposed to be another match taped first, with two new guys. One of them didn’t show; the other was Kid Karisma. And when I first saw that kid, stripped down to his underwear, me and the other guys in the crew exchanged glances.
That body! That ass! That face!
And as soon as he slipped on those gold trunks, there was no doubt in my mind this kid was going to be a big star.
I was in pretty good shape, myself. And since someone had bowed out…we decided to go with a three way match, that wound up being released on Masked Mayhem 5.
