Hey everyone. Greg Mehochko here for Kevin Hunsperger. I’m excited to bring you two sides of a story in Episode 183.
As you are probably aware, Kevin puts his undefeated record on the line this Saturday in Pinckneyville, IL. More importantly, Kevin steps into the cage to fight for the honor of his twelve-year-old daughter and all victims of bullying. If you remember Episode 181, Kevin’s daughter Brooke was sitting ringside in Carterville a few weeks ago when “The Mad Viking” Roger Matheus threw Brooke into the ring and threatened to power slam her. It was all in an attempt to get Kevin to sign a contract for this Saturday’s event. Kevin signed the contract and Matheus still power slammed Brooke.
In this episode, I talk with Kevin, discussing the events that led up to this moment and his apprehension to stepping into the cage with the most dangerous man in Stride Pro Wrestling.
I reached out to Matheus to get the Viking King’s side of the story. While the events are the same, he definitely has a different interpretation of how things went down, where and how he felt wronged in Stride Pro Wrestling. He even blames Kevin for the events just a few weeks ago. And Matheus has a chilling message for Kevin and everyone else in Stride Pro Wrestling.
I’ve been a longtime fan of pro wrestling. And I’m proud to say I’ve been involved with some of the finest independent wrestling companies in southern Illinois. I’m extremely grateful for my current role as the ring announcer in Stride Pro Wrestling.
But now I find myself once again backed into a corner and having to defend not only myself but my 12-year-old daughter. You can hear the whole story on the podcast this week. But yes, I am stepping into the ring, this time surrounded by a steel cage against Roger Matheus on Saturday, May 26 at Pinckneyville High School.

First, thank you all for checking out this podcast. This is episode 100 and I wouldn’t be where I am today with the show without your support. I truly appreciate the fact that people are listening and sharing this podcast with their friends. I am focused on finding more quality guest to have on each week as the show moves forward.
For the 100th episode, I was able to book Bushwhacker Luke as my guest. Big thanks to Jerry Travelstead for helping make this happen. Jerry is a school superintendent in Pinckneyville, Illinois. On Saturday, Nov. 5 Bushwhacker Luke will be wrestling at a fundraiser show for the district.
Luke talks about his career before, during and after WWE. He also provides an update on his longtime tag team partner Butch Miller. If you live in the area, come on our November 5 and meet Luke. There will be opportunities for photos and autographs too. I’ll be there along with local favorites like Heath Hatton, Ax Allwardt, Farmer Billy Hills and Tony Flood among others.
Hey tough guys! It’s not hard to figure out who this week’s guest is. WWE Hall of Famer “Hacksaw” Jim Duggan joins me for a discussion about his career and friendship with the late “Rowdy” Roddy Piper.
Hacksaw will be in Pinckneyville, Illinois Saturday, May 14 for a fundraiser show. You can learn more here. The legend is also trying his hand at comedy. You can check out his schedule on his website or follow him on Twitter @OfficialHacksaw
