INTERVIEW WITH DOVE PROWRESTRING
How can I explain about them and their party? Those who has visited
their party once already knew they're not normal wrestlar. The party
has not only their fight but also DJs' playing during every fights
dance paformance or Janbe parcasioners playing. Have you ever seen
such a crazy wrestling party?
P: Because of we've been good friends for long, I think it's not easy
to ask you guys about what's deep inside of yourselves. But please
feel free to say anything you want. So for first, what made you strat
Jiro: The first thing that got me interested in wrestling
was wretling video games, because I could fight actually. After playing
games, I started watching wrestling on TV. So what I really like
is Kamen Rider!
Goshi: When I was around 6years old, before I startedelementary
school, I watched the Tiger Mask cartoon and so that was my first
impression of wrestling.Then when I was in my 3rd year of junior
when a friend of mine told me that Zen-Nihon, a famous wrestling
team, was really 'Yabai'(bad like good bad), so I got wrestling
I was really into lots of crazy things, like heavy metal and the
P: When was the first Dove-Prowresling
party? How was that?
J: About 2 years ago, it was in fall of 2000,
at Border Cafe.
P: With DJs?
J: At that time we just have a few djembe players drumming
while we wrestled, with no DJ.
P: How did the first party that combined
music with wrestling start?
G: It was Koki's idea.(Koki is one of
their crew) Now we can't fight without music!
P: Why is music such
an important part of your parties? Tell me a little bit about what
music means to you.
G: While I'm wrestling, I feel the rhythm and
hear the music within me first, but through the DJs this
is communicated to the audience. And having the
DJs helps people
be intersted in wretling to enjoy our events.
I agree with everything G has said, but personally when I'm fighting,
all I'm thinking about is wrestlig itself.
P: Besides music, what is
wrestling itself for you?
J: Kamen Rider!!
G: I like things that are extreme, strange, or
dangerous. Wrestling is a way for me to be
Extreme, strange,and dangerous. While I'm wrestling,
I can be the
bad guy that I really
am. If I acted
like I do whern I'm wrestling in real life,
sombody would kill me!
J: The charactor of
us while we're wrestling is something we have inside ourselves, but
P: While you're fighting, do
you feel anything from the audience?
J: Sometimes, the audience is
so excited, I'll do something, like take a minute
to drind some
so calm the
audence down. With
I always play the role of the hero,so
the audience is always cheering me on so much,
I meed to
do something that
they won't expected.
P: Are you satisfied
with where you are now?
J&G: No! We never be satisfied. It's
really hard to find places to hold our events. We're all busy and
it's hard to get together to
practice. The biggest obstacle
thouth, is find places to hold our events.
P: What are your plans for
J&G: We'll be number one in Japan! One day, eneryone
will be wearing wrestling masks!
P: Thand you very much.
