By Malcolm Parent http://i355.photobucket.com/albums/r461/jester_x7769/BHOTWG/male18_zpstenesp41.jpg BHOTWG has hired Nigel Alexander, out of Seattle, WA who ran a successful booking blog. Owner Tetsuzan Kaneko said that in order to fully comply with the Modern Japanese Movement they needed a true westerner to book the shows. JWI sat down with new booker, Nigel Alexander JWI: Nigel, what made you accept the BHOTWG booking position first of all? Nigel Alexander: As an American, or westerner as you prefer, I am sick of the garbage of wrestling on TV. Wrestling is an athletic endeavor combined with an artistic art form. Instead you have companies like SWF, TCW, and USPW running these silly characters and storylines. Japanese wrestling is a lot more serious and legit, which I love. However business dictates America, or the West, is doing something right. JWI: I think we can all expect changes. The schedule has already changed, what's next? NA: Speaking to the schedule change, it really is not different from what most of Japan is going through with the Modern movement. Tours were great back in the day when people could not watch online, or DVR shows. It is so easy to follow wrestling these days there are no point to highlight shows or crammed in schedules. A nice easy once a week, year round product has proven to work in the West. JWI: Back to the original question, but thank you for elaborating, what do you see changing to match the West? Should we expect a massive change? NA: Not at all. Actually, I plan to change very little. We will let our athletic competitors showcase their personally a little more but will not be creating fake clowns or police man gimmicks for them. It will all be authentic. The only change for now is you will see angles during our programming instead of 100% wrestling, since even given a few minutes can really help characters grow. JWI: Thank you for the quick interview Nigel, we will be following the changes closely. http://i355.photobucket.com/albums/r461/jester_x7769/BHOTWG/BHOTWG_company%20logo_zpsyjjqdbzi.jpg Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
