Mike Check

Working the El Paso market.
Mike Check is a man of many radio personality aliases, from Pecos Billy in the El Paso market, to Barney Goldstein on a Jewish radio station, to Juan Sanchez on the Don Juan Siesta Drive.

Mike Check was the 8th TNA correspondent for WrestleCrap Radio (from February 20, 2009) which he referred to as WWCR -- The Wacker! He ended his segments with a song dedication, such as Snowbird by Anne Murray. Highlights included going on a 'tour' where he escaped death in increasingly improbable ways.

He tragically 'died' on-air in a fireworks explosion after he lit a cigar...or so he wanted people to think. 

In truth he faked his death to escape the man-tracking menace that is John Thomas, now working with Dead Beat Recovery Services, who was trailing him for his failure to pay child support for the more than 30 children he fathered from his radio tenures. During that time on the run he frequently called in from the "pearly gates", which was in reality a trailer park in Minnesota. He was ultimately found by Sheriff "Dirty" Harry Dickwell and served some time in Folsom Prison, where despite his incarceration he still somehow managed to play songs. One both wonders (and fears) how he managed to bring his record player into prison.

To try and bail him out his 'daughter' attempted to sell bumper stickers and T-shirts with his face on them. Buy one today!

Currently Mike is living somewhere in Folsom under house arrest yet still with his "own show" with his 'daughter' taking care of things as the "whiz kid" that she is. Heresay abounds of her own non disk jockey career that she doesn't want to tell her dear old father about...for some reason. 

  • He had been in numerous radio markets under various names during his career. This was both to get away from his spurned women, and to (fail to) reach a wider audience.
  • Despite his many aliases and work history, he keeps mispronouncing "R.J. and Brad".
  • He has a pretend hatred of female work colleagues to hide the fact that he more often than not quickly seduces them.
  • He was once attacked by turkeys while in a helicopter. He survived. 
  • Rumors abound that he is a secret Time Lord, which explains his advanced age. 
  • Fellers, did I ever tell you about the time...
  • Not sure I understand that particular reference there, Brad.
  • Fascinating.
