One of Mr. Nestlemania’s fondest memories from his childhood was watching WWF Superstars with his grandfather at four years old, which ignited the fire inside him and helped turn him into a lifelong fan from then on, to the point where he lived and breathed wrestling of all kinds. It didn’t matter if it was WWF, WCW, or ECW; he watched them all and hasn’t stopped since. Well, except for a brief hiatus after that whole Katie Vick storyline… the less said about that whole debacle the better.
Ultimately this life long passion for professional wrestling would lead Mr. Nestlemania to become a wrestler himself, training under the tutelage of Maverick Wild, but unfortunately his wrestling career was cut short by a severe back injury. However, this was not before he got to finally experience a lifelong dream of wrestling in front of a live crowd after eight years of hard work, with The Intern as his manager.
He co-founded the Jobber Knocker Podcast with J.C. as a way to further express his love of professional wrestling and hopes that he can continue to entertain people as well with his passion and energy.
The man with the mysterious initials of J.C. originally wasn’t allowed to watch wrestling when he was growing up, but things changed in middle school when his friends began to watch as wrestling’s public popularity went through the roof during the attitude era, and J.C. was instantly enamored by the storytelling and athleticism involved.
A long time fan of sports in general, with an almost encyclopedia level of knowledge, J.C. felt like sports entertainment was the next big thing for him to obsess over. As a co-founder of the Jobber Knocker Podcast, he brings that obsession and endless knowledge to the masses, always ready and willing to debate his point of view against Mr. Nestlemania.
When the Jobber Knocker Podcast first started, chances were good you’d hear a “Our Boy DQ” shout out by Nestlemania or JC when they referenced a hot wrestling take by their co-worker.
DQ officially joined the team as one of the first contributors of JobberKnocker.com and later transitioned into the role of webmaster.
Danny’s love for wrestling – and characters like The Big Boss Man and Ultimate Warrior – began when he discovered a WWF Wrestlefest arcade cabinet as a kid. That love was solidified throughout the years as he followed wrestling with his big brother, TJ.
Highlights of his wrestling fandom were attending Wrestlemania 33 and sitting second row at Backlash in 2009.
Video guru Billy is the man behind many of the videos you’ll see on the Jobber Knocker social media channels. He also will contribute articles to JobberKnocker.com when he’s particularly fired up about something.
He got into wrestling when he was about 5 years old. He used to cut the bottoms of plastic bags and wear them as tank tops so he could rip them off like Hulk Hogan.
His favorite event he’s seen live was Money in the Bank 2014. There were some great matches, but Bo Dallas interrupting Daniel Bryan brought him pure joy.
Billy’s favorite match is Rey Mysterio vs. Eddie Guerrero at Halloween Havoc. It’s a beautiful high flying and psychical match. It’s the match he show people who are like “why do you like wrestling?” And then are willing to watch.
His favorite wrestler is HBK. However, the Velveteen Dream is making a strong case.
Brandon is the man behind the weekly NXT UK articles for JobberKnocker.com.
His dad is a lifelong wrestling fan so he was introduced at a very early age and never looked back.
“The Real Deal” believes the greatest match of all time is Johnny Gargano vs Andrade ‘Cien’ Almas at NXT TakeOver: Philadelphia and Bret Hart is the best there is, the best there was, the best there ever will be.
Brandon makes sure to close out every article with three simple words. . . “Long Live Wrestling!”
TJ has been a wrestling fan since he can remember, watching Saturday mornings with his brother and dad. Like most people his age, it fell off for a little bit, but in 1998 the Attitude Era won him back into wrestling.
From there, TJ was sucked in weekly. In college, he discovered independent Wrestling on the internet, along with Impact and WWE, a whole new passion to the industry. Highlights are attending three Wrestlemanias, seeing AJ Styles debut and Ric Flair’s last match (in WWE and TNA.)
The Joestopper’s love of professional wrestling is matched only by his passion to teach the world proper grammar. He can’t think of a better outlet than JobberKnocker.com to vent about both.
An elder statesman of the JK roster, he became infatuated in the late 80’s with the crusade of Bobby Heenan to end Hulkamania once and for all. He cheered with all of his might for monsters like Big Boss Man, Undertaker, and Andre The Giant to pull off miracles. Yet, his favorite wrestling moment was when the Hulkster ended the mystique and forged a more realistic era of wrestling storylines with nWo and D-Generation X. Although admittedly a keyboard gangster, he awaits with breathless anticipation for both a fill-in shot on the JK Podcast and his #GrammarTroll tee-shirt creation. If nothing else, he’s ambitiously delusional.
Guthrie The Ring Announcer
Guthrie is a former ring announcer for the independent scene of professional wrestling and announced in every New England state except for Maine. He had the privilege and honor of announcing notable names such as Jerry “The King” Lawler, “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan, Ron Simmons, Scotty 2 Hotty and even Shark Boy! He announced his first match at the age of 18.
Since retiring from the independent circuit, Guthrie spends most of his time writing screenplays, directing and producing his own movies, watching endless amounts of WWE and tweeting his frustrations about the current state of affairs. He’s been watching wrestling avidly since 2001. His favorite wrestlers of all-time include Zack Ryder, Alberto Del Rio, Triple H, CM Punk, Jazz, and Becky Lynch.
He is happy to bring his announcing talents to the podcast by introducing Mr. Nestlemania and JC every week.
