Supreme Pro Wrestling and Pro Wrestling Bushido put on an exhibition Sunday at the Sacramento G.I. Joe & Toy Expo at the Scottish Rite Temple. Several stars from both promotions wrestled throughout the late morning and afternoon giving the expo visitors a demonstration. Inside legendary wrestlers from the past such as Sgt. Slaughter, Luke Williams from The Bushwhackers, Leilani Kai, Marty Jannety and future star Angelina Love were signing autographs and meeting with the fans.
During a break between wrestling, Leilani Kai and Luke Williams held an hour long Q & A session for the fans. The two wrestlers talked about working the independent circuits and the different promotions in the N.W.A. (National Wrestling Alliance) before making runs in the World Wrestling Federation. Luke was a member of one of the most violent tag teams of the day "The Sheepherders" before joining the W.W.F. as a comedy tag team with partner Butch Miller. Leilani Kai was trained and managed by The Fabulous Moolah and held the W.W.F. Women's title and the W.W.F. Women's Tag Team title with fellow "Glamor Girl" Judy Martin.
The two also talked about how ring psychology, promos and telling a story through wrestling are slowly becoming a lost art form in today's mainstream wrestling. They feel that's becoming too much of a spot fest (high impact moves) instead of old fashion grappling. Luke talked about his former tag team partner Butch and his current health problems and how they prevent him from traveling trans-pacific flights. Leilani Kai said her most memorable moment in wrestling was defending her title against Wendi Richter at the first Wrestlemania and Luke Williams was wrestling in front of over 80,000 fans at Wembley Stadium for Summer Slam 1992. After the Q & A was over, the wrestlers chatted with the fans before heading back to their respective signing tables.
Supreme Pro Wrestling returns this Sunday for their September show at the S.P.W. Arena located next to St. Peter's Church. For more details visit http://www.supremeprowrestling.com
