Interview: Sensei Michael Parisi ( Hardcore Wrestling International )


Where did the inspiration for the character Sensei Michael Parisi come from?

Sensei Parisi is a reflection of Michael Joy. I had just finished a ten year journey and earned the title of Sensei in the art of Aikido. I had reached my goal and captured my first degree (shodan) black belt. Now, I was ready to embark on another journey in the world of Hardcore Wrestling International. I wanted to use everything that I learned in Aikido and combine it with my knowledge of professional wrestling, and hopefully create a unique style for myself. I think HWI commentators once called me an “athletic nightmare”. At the time, there were definitely more similarities than differences between myself and the Sensei Parisi persona.

Obviously playing heel is more fun than being the face. But from a creative stand point what did you do to separate the face Parisi from the heel Parisi?

Sensei Parisi as a face is very relaxed and reserved, patterned after wrestlers …

eBay Monopoly

Friday, June 1,2012
SAN FRANCISCO (CN) – A federal judge refused to dismiss claims from a class action that claims eBay monopolized the market for payment systems used in online auctions.

eBay’s accepted payment policy prohibits sellers from asking buyers to contact them for additional payment methods or from asking buyers to use a method a seller did not include in their listing, according to the class. If it believes a seller violates the policy, eBay removes seller’s listings.
In January, U.S. District Judge James White disagreed that the class tied its claims of attempted and actual monopolization to eBay’s acquisition of PayPal.
The class instead ti…
