Scott Fury is a guy I have known ever since the old Arkansas All Star wrestling days in Ward, AR promoted by my old buddy Boss Winters. Here’s a guy who always works hard - provides good matches and has a great attitude. Good attitude both in the ring and in the dressing room. I’m always glad to see Scott at the NEW events and would gladly have managed him back in the day! I wish him success and hope he continues to be a part of NEW – he’s a great addition to the organization and a great guy.
Justin “the Juice” Smart is probably the fastest guy in the ring that I’ve ever seen outside of the WWE. I mean this kid moves like greased lightning!!! When he does the running of the ropes back and forth with the diving maneuvers in his matches, it’s all I can do as a referee to try to stay out of the way. This is 1-2-3- kid all over again. This guy has all the moves, the willingness to ask questions and learn and the right attitude to become a player in this business. A little more size and muscularity will certainly help him, but he doesn’t have that far to go. At his young age, the sky is definitely the limit.
Alan Steele is a guy I have known for quite some time - from the old Power Pro days to Arkansas All Star Wrestling and several WWE appearances. And even a one night stand we did together for XOW. Every time he gets in the ring, unquestionably, he steals the show. This guy has all the moves, size, strength, know-how and psychology to go all the way to the top and don’t you bet against it happening one day--hopefully soon.
