5 Questions With…
For this installment we give you 5 Questions With…“The Old Timey King Of Swing” Dasher Hatfield!! You may be familiar with Dasher from Chikara and his team The Throwbacks with Sugar Dunkerton or “Mr. Touchdown” Mark Anglosetti. Apparently Chikara is no more so you can find Dasher at a Wrestling Is Fun! show near you! I first saw him wrestle for Chikara in Ottawa, Ontario Canada and I was immediately impressed by the way he makes his moves look so easy. I ran into him at a CWA event in Ontario a couple months ago and as always he was a true professional and very entertaining. Here we go!
1.) Which wrestler made you want to get into the business?
“Lou Thesz. I was a big Lou Thesz fan. (At this point in the video we see Pinkie Sanchez make an appearance!!) Definitely not Pinky Sanchez. He’s a guy that would make you wanna get out of the business. Run little children, run.”
2.) Who is your toughest opponent?
“Fire Ant. No matter how many times you hit that little bugger, or slam him really hard, or even squash him, he just keeps getting back up!”
3.) What was your greatest match?
“In Easton, PA I took on Brodie Lee. I say it’s my greatest, not only since I beat him single handedly, but I used my noodle. His finisher was a big boot so I just took his boot off, and then his major weapon was gone!”
4.) What was your worst injury?
“I’d probably have to say, very recently I broke a few ribs. In this business I’d say I’m pretty lucky that’s my worst injury.”
5.)What are your plans for the future?
“Just keep wrestling as long as this old body will let me. That’s about it. Just keep trudging along. And keep the Mrs. happy of course. Happy wife, happy life folks.”
