It's May 2014, which means I somehow came up with a new theme for the month. This month on The Juicy Details, we'll be celebrating tag team wrestling with the aptly named "Tag Team Month". All month long I'll be interviewing some of the best and brightest tag teams on the independent wrestling scene. Today I am joined by a tag team of 9 years in wrestling, and close to 30 years in life, as Devin and Mason Cutter, The Hooligans, stop in on The Juicy Details

#HardcoreMonth continues on with Episode 39 here on The Juicy Details. Being hardcore doesn't necessarily mean being involved in hardcore/deathmatch style of wrestling all the time, being hardcore can also mean being one of the most hard hitting, badass wrestlers on the scene. On Episode 39, we in fact interview a hard hitting badass wrestler, that being "The War King" Eddie Kingston
We were live on location again, this time at AAW in Berwyn, IL to interview Eddie during the show. In his interview Eddie discusses how he became a fan of professional wrestling, his favorites growing up, what the word "hardcore" mean to him, his most hardcore matches, who in his eyes is hardcore, and whole lot more. Eddie is one of the most unique and toughest wrestlers in independent wrestling today, and this interview confirms it.
Without a doubt The Juicy Details has scored our biggest guest yet for the podcast. As I'm typing this I am in Chicago, IL for the weekend for AAW and Shimmer wrestling, and while I was here I figured I check out some of Chicago's finest food establishments, and the one I had to check out immediately was The Squared Circle, owned and operated by former WWE women's champion and former TNA Knockout's champion and this episode's guest, Lisa Marie Varon (a.k.a. Victora, a.k.a. Tara)
Lisa takes time outta her busy schedule to sit down to briefly discuss her career in wrestling, including how she became a fan of professional wrestling, training, her influences, her take on the Diva's division when she was starting out, her opinions on female competitors taking part in hardcore wrestling, thoughts on intergender wrestling, and much more.
Lisa also answers a "juicy" question that a lot have been wondering, that is if she would ever compete in Shimmer wrestling, and if so, who would she like to face. To hear the answer, listen to this fantastic interview.
