I'm just following the crowd here. Also, I like to write list-based blogs, so shut up and stop judging me. Anyway, I'm no one super special here on DToid (I'm only moderately to semi-special), but I do love this community, and I like the idea of letting everyone in on some personal stuff for those who are interested. So, here it goes.
1. I spent 10 years as a professional wrestler.
Okay, so this is probably the one thing that most DToiders know about me if you've read any of my blogs in the past. I just recently retired due to life happening, also, extreme back pain. I was blessed enough to step in the ring with some childhood heroes, as well as some of the best wrestlers in the world today. Without question, my favorite moment of my career was wrestling Tatanka back in 2007, dude was completely awesome. At one point in time, my future looked promising, but then some backstage stuff happened and I became disillusioned with the wrestling business and sort of lost interest. I no longer enjoyed traveling all the time when I could be sitting on the couch playing videogames with my wife. So really, it was life, back pain, and loss of interest in the lifestyle that caused me to make the decision.
Fun fact, I once had a street fight match and used my Powerglove as a weapon. No one in the crowd understood it.
Anyway, like I said, I retired recently (October to be exact), and it was probably the best match of my career against my best friend. Here it is if you wanna take a gander.
You may notice that most of those blogs are somehow related to pro wrestling. Why? Because I spent 10 years as a professional wrestler before retiring in October 2013 due to back injuries. I actually wasn't too bad.
A bit about me? Well, obviously I love to write. It's not a paying gig yet, but I'm certainly trying to make that happen.
I'm a happily married man, and my wife is smokin' hot.
