Some 25 years ago, Stu Stone was just a punk kid learning how to bump in the famed Canadian Bulldog basement of Thornhill, Ontario -- think "The Hart Dungeon", only with my father banging from upstairs whenever the Superstars Wrestling Alliance (SWA) action got a little too loud.
Today, Stu is a legitimate multimedia superstar. He's appeared in films such as Donnie Darko, The Boys Club and Kickin' It Old School; starred with Jamie Kennedy on the hit MTV series Blowin' Up; lent his voice to cartoons such as Babar and The Magic School Bus; and in his spare time, has a successful music career and hosts the groundbreaking podcast TSM Radio.
What does any of this have to do with professional wrestling?
A lifelong wrestling fan, Stu helped launch Colt Cabana's Art Of Wrestling podcast (you know, the podcast where CM Punk spilled his guts for the world to hear?) and is thanked by Colt on pretty much every episode. And over the past few years, he's become one of the hottest managers on the independent scene, leading his faction The Family Stone to victory in Championship Wrestling From Hollywood (CWFH), which now can be seen online. And last month, columnists at 1wrestling.com named him Manager of the Year -- a massive accomplishment for the little pisher that I used to piledrive at age 13.
In this EXCLUSIVE Canadian Bulldog's World interview, Stu Stone discusses everything from managing and announcing in CWFH, to working with Colt, to LJN action figures, to the infamous "Julia Roberts Incident".
