Sadly, our interview with Lou had to be cut down due to the mass amount of work he has on this was a delayed interview.

My name is Lou King Sharp, I'm from Glasgow, Scotland and I've been wrestling for 4 years, I've worked for 40 promotions across 9 countries but the main promotions I work for are ICW, 5 Star and PBW.

How long have you been in the business and what made you want to become a professional wrestler?

I started training in 2010 and made my debut at the end of 2013, I think the main thing that attracted me to it was the showmanship but it's always been something I've wanted to do for as long as I can remember.


What are some of your career highlights?


I'd consider my career highlights to be my most recent stuff as part of the Fite network/Pure Dead Brilliant in ICW and 5-Star, getting to perform in huge venues on Live TV and I'm really happy with a lot of the stuff I've done in Europe recently.

If you can name 3 wrestlers who influence your style, who would they be?


If I'm studying wrestling I like to take influence from smaller guys like myself I'd say the main guys I watch are Spud, Nunzio and Homicide.


Who would you put on the Mount Rushmore of Wrestling?


Pure Dead Brilliant and Kamala.


Who would you say is/are the next breakthrough star(s) in Scottish Wrestling?


I reckon Owen Jakks and Logan Smith are gonna have a great year as well so there worth keeping an eye on as well as Dylan Angel Prince Asad and Ian Skinner.

Who are your favourite and dream opponents to face?

I'd say my favourite person to wrestle is Stevie Xavier I've never had a match with him that I've not enjoyed and every time I've wrestled him I've came out after it feeling like I've learned from it. Spud is without a doubt my dream opponent with him being such a huge influence and I reckon it would be a lot of fun to be able to work with him I can't imagine it'll happen anytime soon with him being in WWE now but hopefully it'll be able to happen somewhere down the line.

Scottish wrestling is on the rise at the moment, what are your thoughts on that?

It's amazing that Scottish and British wrestling as a whole are on the rise and that promotions like 5 Star and ICW are getting guys mainly stream exposure, I think it's only going to get better as well because there's a lot more younger guys like myself in the Scottish scene right now especially in ICW and were all looking to leave our mark and keep the UK scene on the rise.

What’s it like to be part of the Fite Network in ICW?

It's without a doubt the most fun I've had in wrestling.

Jimmy asks: When is your bedtime?


When I'm finished wae yer maw.


Jordan asks: How did it feel having a rare height advantage when you faced Swoggle?


It's hard to describe what height Swoggle was, I'd say about the same height as yer maw when she's bent over.


David asks: How challenging is it being a smaller guy, in what is regarded as a big mans sport?


Not as challenging as getting yer maw to leave the next day.


One last question. What’s next for you? Where are you going / what are your plans?


I'd like to continue to working in Europe and hopefully get to work in the US again I want to wrestle in front of as many different crowds as possible but mainly my plan is to continue to grow in the promotions I'm currently involved in. There's a lot coming from PDB.
