Bumping Up…Kevin Lloyd

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: Kevin Lloyd

Age: 28

Hometown: Warrington, England

How many years have you been a professional wrestler?

6 years of regular shows.

However I’ve been training since 2011. 8 years ago!

Who are your role models? (either currently or growing up).

Shawn Michaels! Prince Devitt, Low Ki & Rob Van Dam.

Was this something you always wanted to do or did you slowly transition from ‘9-5’ to where you are now?

I decided this what I wanted to do since I was 14, and Ive stuck with it since! I started in the gym at a young age, started training in Muay Thai & Ju Jitsu (for a style), and at 20 I started in Prowrestling training.

What are your main goals for the next few years?

To get as much exposure as possible. Wrestle more shows, wrestle more big time matches, and earn a contract as a Professional Wrestler.

What’s your proudest achievement in your career so far?

I have some cool things coming up this year, that have not yet been announced publicly. So maybe you can ask me again in a few months, and I can talk about them. Opportunities I have worked hard for!

And finally where are some of the promotions fans can currently see you in action?

Futureshock Wrestling, BWR & RISE Underground
