Bumping Up…Gambit

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: Gambit
Age: 16 years old
Hometown: London

How many years have you been a professional wrestler?
I began training on February 2nd 2019 and made my in ring debut on the 9th November 2019!

Who are your role models? (either currently or growing up)
I always looked up to Jeff Hardy as a child because I loved how agile he was in the ring when wrestling. More currently, I look up to Velveteen Dream. I am inspired by his open flamboyance and sassy nature in the ring, which always captivates me and gives me encouragement.

Was this something you always wanted to do or did you slowly transition from ‘9-5’ to where you are now.
As a child, younger than I am now, there was always a part of me that was in love with wrestling. I knew that I wanted to do it for the rest of my life, and I guess it didn’t shake as I grew older. It became something I got more passionate about over time, until I made the decision to begin training for it, and it’s something I could never regret!

What are your main goals for the next few years?
To improve. I’m definitely only at the start of my career and over time my biggest goal is to develop and become the best version of me I can be (in the ring and on the mic) I want to get out there more and gain as much experience as possible.

What’s your proudest achievement in your career so far?
Being able to have an in-ring debut; I think it’s definitely such an opportunity to be able to start a career in a field such as pro wrestling so I think the fact that I can say I actually got off the mark and show people who I am in the ring is an achievement enough!

And finally where are some of the promotions fans can currently, see you in action? I haven’t wrestled in a lot of promotions, however, you could see me in Ultimate British Wrestling!

Make sure you follow Gambit on Instagram and Twitter. He’s clearly very passionate and open to as many opportunities as possible, and very deserving of our time and backing (support British wrestling!)

As always, if you know of an indie wrestler (from anywhere in the world) who deserves the spotlight shone on them, let me know in the comments below!
