At NOVA Pro Wrestling in Northern Virginia, things have become personal between booker Mike E. King and professional wrestler Angelus Layne, to the point where Layne threw a fireball in Mike King’s face last month. Our friends at Squared Circle Sirens had Angelus Layne on their podcast to explain her side of the story, and PWP co-founder and NOVA Pro Wrestling commentator Kevin Ford felt it was only fair for Mike to have the opportunity to share his side of the story. This podcast is exactly that. Mike details his friendship with Angelus Layne, why she was pulled off of the October 2016 NOVA card, the night she hijacked the preshow, the fireball incident, and what led to Mike booking her against Keith Lee at this Friday’s “Cool for the Summer” event. Plus, Mike runs down the rest of the card as well.
