Are we rolling? OK yeah, we’ll edit that out.
*Cough* So fam, here we are, as promised, with Adam Llewyn James, the SOUTH FLETCHER BUTCHER himself. Say hi to the fam Adam.
With me I got my trusted camera operator, it’s ya boy KURTIS.
And last, and also least, I got John Theodore Baldwin here, who’ll be our random input guy for today. Say hi to all the nice people John.
Nice. Without further ado, let’s get this thing started. So Adam, can I call you Adam? Or do you prefer THE BUTCHER?
Sweet. So Adam, you’re serving a life sentence for slaughtering like ten people with, um, an axe?
Daaaamn. So how, um, did it feel smashing their heads in and all?
Felt good, kid. You can’t begin to comprehend the power that comes from taking an innocent life. It’s...like stealing a little fragment of God’s soul.
Shit, um, I bet. So did you know any of them, you know, before?
Like, did you know them personally?
You come very ill prepared for this interview, boy. Don’t you know a single thing about me? They were my family. Mother, father, wife, kids.
Jesus. That’s messed up man. What do you think, John? Isn’t that messed up?
Um, yeah, I mean, yeah.
You heard him, folks. John thinks it’s messed up too. So um, Adam...Can you tell us what went through your head?
You wouldn’t understand, kid. It’s been there since I was born I reckon. A darkness, impenetrable blanket of unholy night, spreading like cancer. That day it grew out of me, and I could no longer contain it. I’d slit your throat too if I could. This is me now. This is who I am.
Damn, that was intense. I don’t know though, is it enough?
Look, no offense, but we need something JUICY you know. Did you like, um, do stuff with the corpses?
Shoot. OK, um, I guess we’ll do the random. Did we take care of the cameras?
What is going on?
See this thing? I found a tutorial on it, it’s a prison “shiv”. Means knife I guess, but you know that probably.
Don’t worry, we paid good money for privacy. So I’ll, um, hold him down would you Kurtis, we don’t need the camera for this.
* Bestial screams - Yucky stabby noises *
OK, um, are we rolling? Let me just, um, get into character.
JESUS FAM, we just um, we just witnessed a LIVE MURDER, the uh, the SOUTH FLETCHER BUTCHER just, um, BUTCHERED John Theodore Baldwin like aah a blood-crazed animal.
You’re ge... keep reading on reddit ➡
I like B&B, they're kinda neat. So is this trivia!
Like most, I didn't know a lot about them - they didn't really have huge indie careers - but I do find them quite cool for their role.
With that said, they're getting up there in age. They still perform well tho, so I hope to see them get a tag team title reign or two.

For a show set in the southside of chicago, it could also stand to have some more people of color in the cast. Also the "I'm more southside than you" between micky and lip was the corniest shit I've ever seen
