This week, it’s wrestling talk with wrestling entrance theme-writer Sheri Shaw at wrestling-themed restaurant The Squared Circle (2418 N. Ashland).
The food was awesome… I tried the “Screamin’ Demon” (Merkts cheddar and fresh jalapeno stuffed, Merkts cheddar, fresh and pickled jalapeno, pork rinds, cholula aioli), a burger I justifiably described as a “two-hander.”
As for the interview, Sheri and I go way back. I first met her in the 90s, and I explain why she’s been on my office wall for years.
We talk about her latest musical project, sstaria, and how she got sucked into the professional wrestling world. Specifically:
*How she started working with Billy Corgan six years ago (“it’s a very Cinderella story”)
*The Resistance Pro days (“It was really fun at first”)
*The Resistance Pro reality show on AMC (“there were a lot of egos”)
*The benefits of kayfabe (also: What is kayfabe?)
*Why Billy Corgan is living the American Dream
*The end of the line for Billy Corgan at Impact Wrestling (“Billy is a total fan… he loves it so much”)
*What’s next for Sheri in music, wrestling and otherwise
