Episode 105 - Jeff Cannonball (CZW, Altered Boys, Black Kites)
In celebration of the release of Bloodlust: Tournament of Death over at Vice.com (Release Date: Nov 15), Damian sits down with one of the movies most memorable characters: Jeff Cannonball. But as Damian learned while making the doc, Jeff is no mere wrestler, Jeff is a basement playing, on the floor sleeping, front seat of the van riding, kid of the hardcore. Listen in as the two discuss going from playing Ieper fest to wrestling New Jack.
