In the mid 90’s Brett got involved with pro wrestling and was running the WWE’S minor league company Ultimate Pro Wrestling in Orange County California. Producer Thom Beers found Brett while filming a documentary called “ Wrestling School” for Discovery Channel and asked Brett to come on board and be the voice for a brand new show called “Monster Garage” with Jesse James. Brett was the voice of the show for 5 years and 89 episodes and even filled in as the host for 4 episodes. From there Discovery Channel took notice and gave Brett his own show called “Monster Nation” which he hosted 40 episodes. Brett also got to co-host the popular first annual “Biker Build Off” awards with Bill Goldberg for Discovery Channel.
The Schwag was dabbling in Los Angeles radio for years being a fill in host and guest on “ESPN’S Mcdonald Douglas Show” on 710 am and from there started his own talk show called “Monster Radio which was syndicated in 85 markets from 2003-2006.

Brett travels and works up to 20 major bike, car and Drag race shows a year. Including the last 5 years at the world famous “SEMA SHOW” in Las Vegas.

Brett became the spokesman for Bad Boy Mowers in 2004 and continues to work with the Arkansas based lawn mover company doing all there commercials and events and even gets to rub elbows with the likes of Willie Nelson and Toby Keith who are also spokesmen for the company.

So lets look at the present for Brett Wagner and see what’s going on. Brett currently hosts the #1 rated show on Speed Channel called “Pass Time”. The drag racing show is on tv 4 days a week and gets 3 million viewers watching. Brett has hosted over a 150 episodes and will be filming for episodes 2009 and 2010.

His alter ego “The Big Schwag” wrote a book with co-author Bruce Collins called “The Big Schwags Positive Self Help Guide for Complete Losers Like You”. Which is selling very well and can be bought at And on the acting front Brett has got two major movies coming out in early 2010. Tekken the widely popular fighting game for the arcade was made into a major motion picture with our buddy Brett Wagner playing the grumpy bartender.
