Here is an interview with referee  C J Roberts ! Enjoy !


How was life growing up?

My younger years before my teenage years were pretty normal but in my teenage years I got involved with drugs at an early age and was getting into trouble and I dropped out of school in grade 10 but I was one of those lucky ones that had parents that didn't give up on me and sent me to rehab at 19 years old for a year and it was the best thing they ever did for me.

  Did you attend college?

Yes I did attend college first I went back to School at 30 years old to get my High School Diploma and then I decided to go to college at 35 and got my Electronics Engineering Technician Degree in the year 2000.

  Who trained you?

   I trained first to be a wrestler I was being trained by guys like Tommy Blade, Rick Sterling and Pat Hamilton the Scotsman in the old CPW Promotion out of Gatineau Quebec but I did not continue because I kind of got scared because there was another student that was a kid about 17 who was a lot bigger than me who was being taught how to do a simple back suplex and he broke his ankle because he did not have his fett placed properly on the mat. well I'm thinking this kid is 17 and not in the greatest shape and I'm in my 30s struggling with health issues and weight problems and I have a young family that depend on me at home so I decided that being a wrestler was not for me but I wanted to be involved in the Indy Wrestling Scene in some Capacity so I decided to be a Referee and the Guy who took me as his Protégé and trained me was Big Dick Patrick of the old CPW
   


 What was a typical day of training for you?

A typical day of training for me was going in the ring teaching me how to take basic bumps and when Crusher Kline became Head Trainer in the old CPW out of Gatineau Quebec we practiced all our bumps but now with Crusher Kline who is now the trainer of Bodyslammers Canada out of Ottawa Ontario Canada was training us the psychology of wrestling too & when I decided to train as a Referee I was taught that a Ref is important as well in the psychology of a wrestling match today so I really believe that anybody who gets trained by Crusher Kline will become a better wrestler and Referees.

  Were you a wrestling fan growing up?

Yes I was a wrestling fan growing up since the age of 8 years old.

  Who were your favorites?

My favorites growing up was Jay Youngblood, Wahoo McDaniel, Chief Jay & Jules Strongbow Mark & Chris Youngblood, Ricky Steamboat before the Dragon years and also Chris Tatanka Chavis as you notice most of my favorite wrestlers growing up were Native Americans I used to love the gear they came in with especially their headdress they were so proud of their heritage every time they wrestled and that always made me proud of my Algonquin aboriginal heritage.

 Did you attend any shows when you were younger?

Yes I did International Wrestling Quebec out of Montreal came into Pembroke when I was growing up Wrestlers like Dino Bravo, Gino Brito Sr. and Jr. the Rougeau Family Masked Superstar Joe Leduc, Tony Parisi, Abdullah the Butcher and Rick Martel also the managers like Eddie Creachman & Frenchy Martin etc


  What was the first time you realized you wanted to be a referee?

   Like I said before the first time I decided to become a Referee I was in my 30s but the first time I dreamed about becoming a wrestler was when I was about 12 Years old and I saw for the first time Chief Wahoo McDaniel wrestle and using knife chops and the tomahawk chops on the top of the head coming off the top turnbuckle. I felt he was big guy and he was moving like a lightweight in that ring easy and I thought if he can do it I can do it but as years went on I did not get that opportunity to get into in my younger years the internet was not available when I was kid.
   


 What promotion did you start out in?

 I started in 1999 in Canadian Professional Wrestling (CPW) in a bingo hall in Hull Quebec.

  Did you ever want to quit?

Yes I did want to quit it was in 2003 at CPW's Anniversary Show Reincarnation it was a tag-team match with Abdullah the Butcher & Wild Dangerous Dan vs Guy "The Legend" Sauriol & Dave Le Justicier and Big Dick Patrick was the Referee of the match and I was in the back watching the match & out of the blue Dan attacked the Referee & bladed him after Dan was finished with him it was Abdullah's turn with the Ref & he took his infamous fork and started jabbing the fork into his forehead & the blood just started gushing. At the time of the show I have only been in the business for about 3 years and I probably have about 10-15 matches under my belt & that kind of freaked me out seeing that & Big Dick Patrick never came back to the business after that show, but I'm still here cause I have never put myself in that predicament as long as I have been in the business.

 Who was the booker at the time?

The Booker at that time was Gino Brito Sr.

What makes you angry in pro wrestling?

The things that makes me angry is when fans say to me that wrestling is fake and that they don't get hurt in the ring and that some of them think that it is not real blood.

 What is you biggest pet peeve?

My biggest pet peeve is when a fan comes to me & says I can do what you do knowing who is going to win all you have to do is make sure you make the count of three, yes that is true in a way I do have to make sure I am there to make the count of three but if the wrestler does not kick out before I hit the mat for the count of three the match is over & I don't just stand there. I feel Referees do not get the respect that they should deserve by the fans and even by some of the wrestlers, but that is my opinion.
 
What's your favorite wrestling move?

Well I like submission moves myself so my favorite move is the Undertaker's submission move Hell's Gate.

What kind of music do you like?

I grew up listening to Country Music but I am really into R & B new & old

  Where is the farthest place you refereed?

The farthest place I have refereed is in a place called Chicoutimi Quebec somewhere in no man's land.

  What place is your favorite place to referee?

Well I have two places that are my favorite the first one is with Big Time Wrestling in Ottawa Ontario and the other one is Mecca Pro Wrestling out of Cornwall Ontario

  Where do you see yourself in wrestling in five years?

Well I am 46 and I'm hoping in five years I will be still refereeing.

 What do you want to accomplish in wrestling?

 Well what I want to accomplish in wrestling is respect as a referee the fans say that it is easy to be a referee well I have been in this business for about 15 years & it is not as easy as the fans think it is I have already had 3 surgeries on my left knee over the years I have been involved in wrestling & I am very lucky I can still do this today.

  What was your favorite match?

Well I actually have 2 favorite matches they both happened at CPW Reincarnation 2003, the first match was Aftershock VS Dru Onyx & FOD. The second match was PCO VS Thunder in a Dog Collar Indian Strap Match they were very intense matches.

  What was your favorite indy match that you didn't referee?

My favorite Indy match was El Generico VS Kevin Steen before the ROH days.

 Any crazy fan stories?

The only crazy fan story I can remember was when I first started refereeing in CPW I was refereeing a hardcore match it was Jason VS Iceberg and Jason put Iceberg through a table and this fan came out of nowhere and hit me with her umbrella because she did not like the fact that I let Jason put her favorite through a table & I swore this fan was nuts she had this look in her eyes and I grabbed the umbrella and threw it into the crowd and hence that is where I got the nickname The Hardcore Ref While I was with CPW because CPW stuck me in hardcore matches for the first 3 years of my career.


  Any good road stories?

. Well I don't know if I can call this a good Road Story but sometimes CPW did road shows and this particular show that I was going to was somewhere in Quebec it was like 9 hour drive or something and I didn't get there until 14 hrs later it was me and 2 other refs that were booked for that show I can't remember the name of the town it was some kind of French name that I couldn't even pronounce. we got lost I ended up somewhere in no mans land there was no street lights I felt like we were in redneck country it was winter time and it was cold as hell and no cell service and I didn't know a lick of French so I had a hard time reading the signs in French so all I did was drive and hope to see any sign of life and about an hour later we came into a town with civilization and cell service and I called the promoter and asked for the directions to the show and it was like 30 minutes away from where I was, and I never lived that down for a long time, so from that day on I went out & bought a GPS so that would not happen to me again the GPS would read the French sign instead of me LOL.

What's the craziest thing you've seen at a indy wrestling show?

The craziest thing I've seen at a Indy wrestling show was at the now defunct International Wrestling Syndicate (IWS) show called UNF**KENED SANCTIONED 2008 at The Medley where I saw the Hardcore Ninjas take their opponents up to the balcony and they had tables stacked up on each other & they decided to jump off the balcony with their opponents through the tables and that balcony was pretty high and if it would've been an average person doing that stunt he/she would have been seriously injured but not these guys the got up and wrestled for another 5-10 minutes before the match was ended, I'm wow these guys are crazy.

  What are some of your hobbies besides wrestling?

Well not to many people know this I am a certified Computer Technician so I do a lot of tinkering with computers & laptops I also into video editing anything that involves media.

  Do you follow UFC at all?

Yes I do follow UFC and the fighter I like Anderson Silva.

  Do you have anything to plug?

If people want to see some wrestling in the Ottawa area and bring the whole family to some fun family entertainment Big Time Pro Wrestling has a show on Feb. 16th 2013 at the Rideau Carleton Raceway & Slots located in the lower level on Albion Rd. Doors open at 6:30PM the show starts at 7:00PM you will not regret it. I would like to plug something else to those young fans who dream of becoming a wrestler I would like them to check into Bodyslammers Canada. It is a Pro Wrestling Training School run by Head Trainer Wayne Cryderman A.K.A. Crusher Kline and it is located at the Rideau Carleton Raceway & Slots in Ottawa Ontario Canada. You won't only learn the physical aspects of the business, you also learn the psychology of the business which is great. The website to Bodyslammers is bodyslammerscanada.ca and they will get all the info that they need if they want to train to be a pro wrestler. I wish Bodyslammers was here when I was 17. So I just want to say to the young fans take advantage of this. I would have taken advantage of training at Bodyslammers if it was around when I was 17.

  Do you have anything to say to your fans?

The only thing that I want to say to my fans is that to those fans that supported me all those years that I have been involved in the business I really appreciate it & to those fans that have booed me over the years I appreciate you too because that is when I found out that a ref could be hated as much as the wrestlers I realized then that it is all up to the fan who they like or hate in this crazy business I'm also hoping that I can still Ref for a few more years & I feel that I still have a lot to offer in this business.

Well, I thought the venue was great. The show was frooping awesome. I can't pick a match of the night because there's just too many great matches.

Show ended at a decent time, so no complaints there.

All in all, good f'n times.
