Bumping Up…JaXon Argos
Interviews can be a tricky topic. Not only do you have to create engaging content, but you also have to come up with questions that make for a cohesive read. And that’s all before you’re even able to find time in the interviewee’s busy schedule to ask the questions.
If it were an interview with someone you’re already aware of, then it’s more likely you will read it, right? But what about those you don’t know. You could be missing out on getting to know your next new favourite wrestler, and you wouldn’t even know it.
So, in order to spread the word on talent on the indie circuit, I got straight to the basics.
Bumping Up is here to point you in their direction and broaden your scope on new talent and promotions. If you like what you read, give them a follow & check out their next show. You never know where all this will take you.
So without further ado, let’s get down to brass tacks & introduce you to…
Name: JaXon Argos
Hometown: Born in Wheeling, WV reborn and trained in Calgary-Alberta, Canada by Lance Storm
How many years have you been a professional wrestler? 2.5
Who are your role models? (either currently or growing up) Growing up I always felt like Godzilla was the best role model. As an adult, I still feel that Godzilla carries role model qualities but I also garner inspiration from George Carlin, Bill Hicks, Jock Samson, and sometimes Judy Bagwell.
Was this something you always wanted to do or did you slowly transition from ‘9-5’ to where you are now? I’ve always seen myself as, for a lack of a better term, being really great at things. Wrestling was always something I wanted to do and now that I am, I’ll never be able to walk away from it.
What are your main goals for the next few years? To win every single championship that my eyes make contact with. I’d like to travel even more and expose the world to the greatness that is JaXon Argos.
What’s your proudest achievement in your career so far? I was the first (and only) professional wrestler to win Rookie of the Year TWICE. In 2016 & 2017, I was voted the International Wrestling Cartel’s Rookie of the Year after having my first year split evenly between the 2 voting periods. My trophies still sit proudly on my mantel.
And finally where are some of the promotions fans can currently see you in action?
