Welcome back to WPAN: The Interviews! Before he was Dominik Dijakovic in WWE NXT, he was Donovan Dijak in the independent and in Ring Of Honor. Take a listen to this classic conversation from before his WWE signing! PLUS, will there be a WPAN reunion on a DIFFERENT podcast?
FROM 2016: Pro wrestler “The Kingpin” Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett are talking shop with Donovan Dijak from Ring Of Honor Wrestling! Hear about his training with Brian Fury, having his first match in a WWE – yes, WWE – ring, his thoughts on the ever-changing indy landscape, how he got to ROH, his run so far in Beyond Wrestling, the biggest match of his career coming up in Lowell, MA on September 30th and more!
This time on WPAN: The Interviews, it’s independent wrestling standout Josh Briggs! We got him before he got his EVOLVE contract and before the WWE put him on the Network. PLUS, if you’re involved in the New England wrestling scene, we NEED to hear from you. Listen for details!
FROM 2018: Pro wrestler “The Kingpin” Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett are back at their home away from home, the New England Pro Wrestling Academy, to speak with one of their top students, independent wrestling phenom Josh Briggs (@TheJoshBriggs)! Josh came from the West Coast to play college football and stayed here to pursue his true dream as a pro wrestler. We talk about his early training with Mike Hollow and what then brought him to Brian Fury’s school, his first encounter with Donovan Dijak, marketing himself, being Mike Honcho, reaching his goals, working with Jack Swagger, winning titles, being backstage at NXT, getting put over by Dijak and so much more. Chances are he doesn’t like you, but there’s a better chance you’ll dig this conversation with one of the wrestling’s biggest rising stars!
This week on WPAN: The Interviews, we hear from maybe the hottest (maybe the only?) heel in wrestling, All Elite Wrestling’s Maxwell Jacob Friedman. MJF peels back the curtain in a way that just doesn’t happen for him these days, so take a listen!
FROM 2017: Pro wrestler “The Kingpin” Brian Milonas and referee Mike Crockett are joined for a compelling conversation by 21-year-old Maxwell Jacob Friedman (@The_MJF), current CZW Wired Champion and a guy who has had great success in a short period of time. We’ll get into his whirlwind career and what it’s taken to get to this point, including his training with Pat Buck and WWE’s Curt Hawkins, the development of the MJF character, his bond with Sami Callahan, and his appearances on the Rosie O’Donnell show as a young kid!
