When I turned 18 I told my parents I was leaving city & moving to Tuscaloosa to become a pro wrestler… They both laughed uproariously at me, & then wished me luck, then i have been obsessed with pro wrestling all my life, & for great reason – Alabama is traditionally a hotbed for wrestling shows, & classic performers.
I grew up seeing men like Bobby Eaton, John Tatum, Moondog Rex, & Dennis Condry tear down the condo in sites like the Tuscaloosa colosseum, and now that I was old enough, I wanted to try my hand at it, so Tuscaloosa seemed like the best locale to go, and first I found a wrestling university, run by Bob Owens, then I found a job in an Heating & A/C warecondo lifting heavy device all day. This was definitely the best of both worlds, because spending a day in a hot, humid Tuscaloosa warecondo is better than hitting the gym; Between the Heating & A/C warecondo & the wrestling ring, I split a lot of weight & entirely got into fantastic physical condition. At the end of the day, it came down to money. It turns out the Heating & A/C corporation who owned the warecondo liked my toil ethic, & offered me a full time position in his Tuskaloosa offices. Taking that job would mean no more extra time for training to be a wrestler, but if I want to live in Tuscaloosa for good, then I need to find a legit job. I feel I will take the job in the Tuscaloosa offices, & keep training in the ring on weekends.
