Superstar Spotlight

A monthly in depth look at the ECWA performers by Josh Martin

by Josh Martin

     There have been many foreign characters in the ECWA over the past 39 years, but none more dangerous as Kermon "The Crazy" German. The young star from Berlin is as tough as they come in the squared circle. He credit's much of his toughness to his living in Germany throughout his days as a youngster. While on the road with wrestling, mainly in the United States, he does try to get home as often as he can back to Germany to visit family and friends in the Berlin area. This 6 year veteran of many mat wars, may have a bad haircut and a wild look in his eyes but don't let that confuse you with his tremendous mind when it comes to defending himself in the ring. He can brawl, do technical wrestling, some high flying, but his biggest attribute is not only his athletic abilitiy, but also his sharp sense of knowing where he is at all times during his matches. While automatically being hated by fans as being from a foreign country, he has added to the hatred towards him by joining manager E.S. Easton's Army. Whether competing as part of that Army, or competing as a singles wrestler, one thing is for certain, Kermon is one of the finest foreign talents to ever lace up his boots and enter the ECWA ring. I recently caught up with the German Star and posed some questions. I hope you enjoy.
