Dragon Con 2013: 13 Questions with CB Suavé

In my ongoing quest to provide you, the Phantomaniacs, with the most in-depth and exciting coverage of Dragon Con and Dragon Con Wrestling, I have come across more than a few larger-than-life personalities. Some are well known to me and some have come from that mystical federation of legend called Anarchy Wrestling.
            As you may have picked up from past Q&As, a lot of the talent used for DCW comes from Anarchy’s roster or has at least worked for the promotion. Anarchy’s shows are just far enough away from me that I haven’t ever ventured out, despite the fact that some of my favorites work there regularly. It’s probably the best-known of the Georgia independents and definitely has an impressive roster. I know for a fact that the shows they put on are worth the trip out to Cornelia, GA, but I just don’t have the time.
Today’s Q&A comes from an Anarchy guy that has worked a couple of DCW shows now and definitely has his own style. CB Suavé has performed under the Hooligans-appointed pseudonyms of Danny Drummond in 2011 and Vin Weasel in 2012. He is the seminal DCW curtain-jerker, but at least he doesn’t get pinned every year like Muffin Top.
This year, CB promises an all-new gimmick – the real him – and a memorable and triumphant night of Dragon Con Wrestling.
1) What was your very first match as a pro wrestler?
A) First match...was July 4th, 2009 in Auburn, GA against Latino Kid. I thought my stomach was gonna come through my mouth! Ha ha!
2) What was your favorite toy when you were a kid?
A) I had a lot of TMNT toys and of course wrestling action figures. BUT I was more of an outside/athletic kid.
3) What is one album everybody should own?
A) Albums! ? They still make those? Kidding! If I had to pick one I would go a lil’ old school and say The Chronic(Snoop Dogg/Dr. Dre)  I usually buy mixtapes or jam out to PANDORA!
4) How did you become involved with DCW?
A) I was training with Slim J at our home promotion (ANARCHY) and still do every week. Anyway, he mentioned Dragon*con and I had no clue what it was and asked to be involved and he's said yeah sure. You can be in the rumble at the end of the show. And of course I was game.
5) Can you tell me about your first DCW experience?
A) As I mentioned earlier I was supposed to be in the rumble at the end of the show, but some guys couldn't make it and I was asked to work the first match! There go the my nerves! A fatal 4-way to kick of the show and I'm looking at all the empty seats before the doors open for the show and I'm like holy s#@t! The room seats close to 1700 people. It’s the biggest crowd I'd ever seen in my career at the time… well actually still is... I know we’re out there to have fun and put on a show but I'm taking it as a huge deal considering the crowd. The match was AWESOME.  The crowd was AWESOME. When the match was over I didn't want to go to the back, I was on cloud nine! Dragon*Con is by far my favorite show of the year to do – it’s only once a year and the atmosphere is like no other!
6) What is your DCW dream match?
A) Favorite dream match... hmmmmmm... I got a few but my dream match would be a singles Ladder match with one of these guys - Slim J, Anthony Henry, Shaun Tempers, Ethan Case - there are a few more, but those guys came to mind first.
7) What is your favorite piece of gear you’ve ever owned?
A) All of them! Simply because my grandma make ALL of my gear and that's special to me. They keep getting better and better..this year my gear will be a lil Macho Man inspired and the first time Dragon*Con will be introduced to the real CB Suavé (the past two years I've dressed up for the show).
8) How does a DCW match differ from other matches?
A) A Dragon*con match to me is a lil’ different than others. Some may say it’s just another match but for me it’s once a year and the fans are so into it and easy to interact with. I don’t know if there are any real words to express the feeling… you'd have to experience it first hand to understand what I mean.
9) Which actor do you feel like you could sit and watch for hours no matter what they were doing and why?
A) Me of course. I've been in two movies with face time, thank you! Ha ha. But I'm on the Z list if there was one. Ha ha ha!
I'd say Will Smith or Terrance Howard. .they're both great in all genres. Their work speaks for itself!
10) What inspires you to do what you do?
A) My passion for the wrestling business. My strive to be the best and be the best match on the card of every show I’m on. Also the fans and my ultimate goal to be a Hall of Famer and to be remembered as one of the best in the business.
11) What is your big nerd passion?
A) I'd have to say online racing. Mainly on iracing.com and my Sci-Fi movie addiction..Star Wars is my FAAAVVVOORRIITTTEEEE!!!!
12) Is there a movie that should never be remade and if so which one?
A) They remake everything nowadays! Some good, some bad. I was in a remake (the Steel Magnolias remake) I don’t know - I'm kinda indecisive on this one.
13) Closer – can you cut a promo for the DCW crowd?
A) Listen up GEEK-CUADS!! What you’re gonna see on Aug. 30 is the debut of the most handsome man on the planet in CB Suavé!! When the ladies see me they’re gonna want to come back to my hotel room instead of that fat, stinking, dickey-doo slob they came in with. I'm the best around and the sooner you realize that... the sooner you'll realize why.... you... LOVE TO HATE ME & HATE TO LOVE ME!!!!!
This is it, people. Unless I receive a last-minute post from some tail-gunning, lollygagging DCW wrestler that’s just too good to not post, this is the last DCW-related post before the BIG NIGHT.
Dragon Con Wrestling is this Friday, August 30th at 7 PM in the Hyatt Centennial Ballrooms I-III and I can personally guarantee that if you attend this battle bowl of blood and bestiality your views on Our Great Sport will never, eeeeeeever, be the same… again.
