Over the years, I have seen this man many times on Smart Mark Video, going nuts during a “bar fight” (when the wrestlers set up 2 chairs facing each other and trade punches to the skull) with Necro Butcher and many other opponents.

He’s been to Carnage Cup (the fifth edition in 2009 comes to mind), Tournament of Death, and King of the Deathmatches, among many other shows.

One thing that impressed me about this fan was the distances he drove. I’m watching footage from Philly’s Arena…there is is! I’m watching Deep South footage from Calera, Alabama…there he is!

Another thing I appreciate is how nuts he goes when the wrestlers perform a spectacular maneuver! He truly enjoys himself while at the show. Watch the footage. You’ll see him jumping up and down, cheering during a bar fight or big spot!

Particle Don: If possible, give us a list or semi-list of all the deathmatch shows you’ve been to!

Robert: All CZW and IWA, 2002 – 2011.

Particle Don: What would be your dream match?

Robert: Necro Butcher vs. Hilary Clinton in a House of Pain Lumberjack match.

Particle Don: Any recommendations of specific wrestling shows or promotions we should check out? Where can we find it?

Robert: Big Japan. Here is their website.

Particle Don: Any unique experiences or fan interactions you’ve had while attending a deathmatch show that you could never get at a normal wrestling show?

Robert: The time a fan “Hardcore Mike” had a chance to give a dumb fan a free unprotected chair shot to the head. He gave a wimpy chair shot.

I asked him why he didn’t lay him out. He said “I didn’t want to get sued”. He is now called “Corporate Mike the Soft-Core Punk Rocker”.

Particle Don: What are some of your favorite bands?

Robert: Anything before 1979.

Particle Don: Throughout wrestling history, what is your favorite entrance theme? Why?

Robert: Anything with AC/DC, as they are Australia’s greatest band.

Particle Don: Where did you first hear of Particle Don?

Robert: From Atom…ha ha

Particle Don: What is your favorite Particle Don song?

Robert: I like Don, but not music after 1979.

Particle Don: What entrance theme would you like to hear Particle Don write words for?

Robert: The Munsters.

Particle Don: What is the origin of your nickname Chris P. Lettuce?

Robert: Cactus Jack’s first book in 1999. One of the wrestlers used it as a name. I took it from the book.

Particle Don: What are you looking forward to with deathmatch wrestling in 2015? Do you plan on attending any shows?

Robert: Light tubes on fat bald guys who are not wearing shirts.

Particle Don: Do you have any side projects or creative endeavors you’d like to share?

Robert: Check out this link.
