"HOLLYWOOD" CAPPONI

"HOLLYWOOD" CAPPONI

The Golden God of Stallion, the son of “specialty adult film” star Beverly “Hills” Capponi, unexpectedly made his way into this world as his heavily-pregnant mother drank rosé and gave birth in a bubbling hot tub in her hometown of Hollywood, Florida. Thus begins the story of the original Jacuzzi boy, “Hollywood” Capponi. The tow-headed tot grew to be a charismatic teen, and via his mother’s industry connections, “Hollywood” debuted his emerging acting talent on local commercials for Surf-n-Shake, Pierre’s Salon For Men, and Rail-to-Rail Wax. When he wasn't on the boob tube, you could catch him chasin' the ladies, ripping waves, and pounding surf beats on his bongos all over Broward County, much to the chagrin of the high school wrestling team meatheads who had seen one too many of their girlfriends waxing his boogie board. When unanimously voted Most Beautiful in his senior year, those same ‘roid monkeys boiled over with jealousy and caught Capponi outside of a Publix grocery store and put an evil pounding to him. Never one to feel sorry for himself, “Hollywood” swore no punks would ever get the best of him again. Trading spit with the local librarian got him unlimited access to all the fruits of knowledge Hollywood, Florida had to offer, no sweeter a berry than a series of Kung-Fu instructional books written by Sensei Ted Gambordella. Inspired by Gambordella, Capponi ditched school for good and spent many of his days and nights in a steamy Florida martial arts gym, roundhouse kicking his way to a black belt. With the steely determination Kung-Fu had brought him and an acting career taking off, “Hollywood” left the South Florida beach bum life and dedicated himself full time to becoming a bonafide movie star. He struggled at first, only landing extra roles as "Pool Boy 1" and "Hunk 2" in “specialty” movie projects. To finance his acting dream, he sat in on drums in dank strip club house bands and also used his martial arts skills to gain entry into the wrestling world, first in backyard unsanctioned matches. He struggled at first, losing his first few matches and being paid in coupons to Taco Time, but in classic “Hollywood” Capponi fashion he used those failures as motivation and in no time double fist-punched his way to being a Sunshine State champion, all while protecting his handsome face. While crane-clawing his way across Florida, Hollywood was noticed by a studio executive who recognized his show-stopping appeal and invited him to Hollywood, California for an audition. His devilish charm and fight precision would land him the lead in the cult classic Samurai Street Justice, the launching pad for Capponi's big-time silver-screen career, after a contract bidding war between American International Pictures, New Line Cinema, and Shaw Brothers Productions. He'd go on to star in titles such as Vigilante Blood Bath, American Blackbelt, and Broken Bones/Broken Hearts, all while continuing to wrestle, since the "Kick Ass Clause" in his contracts allowed him to throw down at least once a month, keeping his muscles taut and lethal. While doing some location scouting down in Texas for his self-penned action-drama-thriller Capponi's Way, “Hollywood” ran into the infamous and implacable bar brawler and freelance bassist, Mr. Dynamite. The two had an instant connection as die-hard, never-lose, not-my-problem kind of guys. They then immediately formed the wrestling team Thunder Brothers to terrorize Southwestern wrestling events one match at a time. They would eventually become the muy caliente "Tequila Champs," famed tag-team champions of South Texas, but at a cost. Capponi's Way would have its funding removed by the film’s producers, citing Capponi for "too much time spent wrestling and not enough time industry schmoozing." Unfazed by the big-wigs in L.A., Capponi and Dynamite would continue to choke-slam the Southwest, eventually meeting up with famed wildcat wrestler and musician Luscious Luke at an outlaw show near Dallas. The three saw greatness between them and in less time than it took “Hollywood” to date the entire L.A. T-Birds Roller Derby Team, STALLION was born: a fearsome trio of championship tag-team wrestling, and stadium-exploding rock n' roll.
