I trained at the Hammerlock northern facility back in the mists of time (late 90s or early 2000s) under Alan Johnson and Jonny Moss. I was in decent shape but was a young idiot who could do moved but didn't know why.
I did a few northern feds, well, 2 that were in Barnsley. I forget the name of one, but both were shit. And that's the level I was lucky to get to. I quit within a year.
I did retrain with 1PW, but I had become fat and my body was fucked. Though I had more of an idea as to why I did stuff so my matches were probably far better than before. I did a few shows in Wolverhampton, including one quite bloody match. I knew I was far too shit, not improving and generally a blight on the UK scene so I had a final match which got good reviews of my selling by Tracy Smothers.
