Ouch – I am a sore loser!

I assume you win some and also you lose some, however during the last 10 days or so, I have been put by the wringer and really feel like a loser particularly contemplating I misplaced extra usually than I received.

It began with 2 matches Thursday on a chilly Florida night. I do know, it isn’t that chilly, however nonetheless – wrestling in 50 diploma climate is tough….and it was even worse the following day as I wrestled in what felt just like the coldest out of doors occasion I ever wrestled on proper subsequent to a Central Florida lake. 

The suplexes and physique slams begin to add up further quick when your physique is that chilly. Jogged my memory of a number of the matches I had on chilly days in England and Scotland, however not less than these have been shielded from the weather. 

Over 5 days, I competed in 13 matches (possibly extra) and my physique is certainly feeling it. Some days we would do 3 or 4 matches. I misplaced rely. I do not know if it is a document variety of professional matches for me, however it’s undoubtedly up there and (shock shock) my physique does not heal up as quick because it used to. 

In my final match, I caught a imply proper hand to the attention that swelled up instantly. The gang loved it! I, alternatively, am nonetheless feeling it nearly per week later.

I took 2 days off earlier than heading out to be an “further” at a wrestling television present. It is cool seeing how the large leagues do issues and attending to stumble upon previous faces from the years I used to be full-time on the scene, in addition to make associates (in all probability extra like acquaintances) with some new dudes. 

HUGE DEATH in professional wrestling final week. I had met Jay just a few occasions both on occasions I used to be wrestling on or at occasions the place I used to be visiting associates. We weren’t associates however he was all the time heat to me and everybody round. On high of that, he appeared to be a fantastic father. One among my favourite modern-day performers within the ring and on the mic. Undoubtedly a giant loss.


Wow! I meant to share this awhile in the past, however I have been so overwhelmed and exhausted that I saved transferring it down my to-do listing. 

A number of weeks in the past, I mailed a test for $6700 to my previous hometown’s Group Motion Program to assist with heating help for the locals. I spoke briefly to the director and he or she let me realize it was the proper timing as they’d an inflow of purposes for heating help this season. 

So, I do know I’ve thanked everybody individually for supporting and donating to the trigger, nevertheless, I might wish to share my appreciation as soon as extra for everybody and anybody who donated or just shared the hyperlink.

Subsequent up, scholarship season. Final yr, I used to be in a position to do 3 so I am hoping to do the identical this yr. Do folks go to varsity anymore? Possibly this scholarship concept is out of date. Any various concepts for instructional sponsorships? 


Unsure what’s subsequent for me. The dude that I share my wrestling area with lastly moved out, so I’ve cleaned up his mess lately. Nonetheless have a bunch of stuff to do away with and clear out. If anybody is close to Clearwater/St. Pete and needs to present me a hand, let me know. I’ve acquired 2 large ass vaults/safes to maneuver, however a wall wants to return down. This dude left them behind to be my headache and I am no carpenter. 

I might like to begin internet hosting reside professional wrestling occasions. One thing like an evening membership occasion or secret speakeasy. I am unsure the foundations on that. 

I am additionally gonna proceed to ply my wrestling craft on the indy scene for the following few months with the hopes that one of many nationwide TV wrestling firms wants an A+ stage jobber for his or her TV exhibits. Anybody have a connection there? 

I feel it will be time to wind down quickly. I am going to nonetheless partake in a match here-and-there. I simply assume it is nearly time for me to step away from the entrance of the digicam and create some magic behind it…or begin a brand new passion altogether. 

I have been the King of Customs 😉 for a decade plus and wrestling skilled off-and-on for over 20 years. What’s subsequent? Possibly you may information me
