We like to support independent wrestling here at One Stop Wrestling, and recently we had a chance to talk to Australian independent wrestler El Más Terriblé. El Más Terriblé is currently working with Wrestle Strong Dojo which you can currently catch on Fite TV.

Like every pro wrestler around the globe, El Más Terriblé has been affected by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. I was able to talk to him about how he had been personally affected by this, as well as discussing career so far, his inspirations, and who and where he would like to wrestle after the pandemic ends.

QUESTION: When did you first start training to become a wrestler? Was it your first sport?

“2007. However, debilitating shoulder injuries put me on the shelf. I moved to Muay Thai in 2009 but after my 20th shoulder dislocation I had a full reconstruction and bone graft. I returned full time into the ring in 2018”

QUESTION: What wrestling did you watch growing up? Who were your favourite wrestlers?

“Growing up my favourite wrestlers were, without a doubt: Sting, Ultimo Dragon & Shawn Michaels.”

QUESTION: Where did you get the inspiration for your gimmick?

“A variety of people influenced my gimmick:

Blue Demon Jr, Adon from Street Fighter, Georges St Pierre, Ultimo Dragon. I hand-picked elements of each, but the rest is all El Más Terriblé”

QUESTION: What can fans expect when they watch you on Wrestle Strong Dojo?

“I can guarantee the fans will be entertained, but that’s not my intention. My intention is to win and to look good doing it. I don’t spend all that time in the gym and training to look like a bum in the ring!”

QUESTION: How has the pandemic affected you wrestling over the past year?

“Unfortunately, bookings were cancelled and the shows I could compete in had limited crowds. Yes, they were sell-outs – but dozens of people were turned away.

Like any sport, the crowd can lift your performance – so it’s been difficult not having the fans cheer El Más Terriblé’s every move.”

QUESTION: After the pandemic ends where do you want to wrestle outside of Australia?

“Okinawa & Japan are on the top of my list, but I don’t want to limit myself. North America, UK, Korea, and Hong Kong are also on my radar.”

QUESTION: What is your dream match with any current active wrestler?

 “A dream would be to share the ring with Ultimo Dragon, but if it were a true challenge I would love to face Alexander Hammerstone. Physically and mentally I’d need to be at another level to compete with him.”

QUESTION: Do you have a positive message to give wrestling fans around the world who are affected by the pandemic?

“Train. Stay positive and stay healthy. Keep up to date with your favourite wrestlers, luchadors and promotions because there is a ton of content available. Don’t believe me? Just have a look at Wrestle Strong Dojo on the Fite TV app!”

QUESTION: If you weren’t a pro wrestler, what would you be doing for a living?

“Male model. I don’t wear the mask because I’m not good looking, I wear it to spare everyone else the shame of being compared to my handsome face.”

QUESTION: What is the best advice you’ve been given about the wrestling business, and who gave it to you?

“The harder you work, the luckier you get. Adios.”

We at One Stop Wrestling would like to thank El Más Terriblé for taking the time to speak to us.
