did you get your break?
had just quit playing Arena
Football but was still staying in shape working
out when Tugboat Taylor
approached me at the gym and suggested I try Pro Wrestling
and the rest is history.
Who trained you?
Taylor of the old ESPN
Wrestling show Global.
Who have been your biggest supporters?

have worked for TASW, EWF, NWA-SW, and ETW here in

toured Japan 6 times. I am currently working for Wildside
and Ring of Honor based in Philadephia.

Heavyweight champion, ETW Heavyweight Champ, TASW
Heavyweight Champion, TASW Hardcore Champion, and
hopefully the Wildside Heavyweight title.
Worst injures suffered?
Ankle - I have a plate and 7 screws put there. 40
stitches on shin, dislocated hip was the most painful.
did your parents say when you gave them the news about
is something I have wanted to do since I was a child.
My parents were against it. After my mother passed
away and I decided it was time for me to make my own
decisions and just went for it.
What motivates you?
to be the best Heavyweight that has ever came from
Texas. With legends like the Funks, Hansen, and Rhodes--I
have my work cut out for me.
What was your best match?
have two. One was a allout hardcore match versus Necro
Butcher of IWA MS and the other was a tag match
in All-Japan versus Hosaka
of FMW and Honma of Big
What current feuds are you in,
and what is the background?
am currently feuding with the NWA Wildside Heavyweight
Champ Iceberg. He is
billed as the 600lb No Pain Train, an unstoppable
force with his little greaseball manager Jeff
Bailey egging him on. Iceberg has destroyed
everybody he has faced and I guess he didn't like
me being the new kid on the block giving hte fans
some hope of him being dethroned. So after one of
matches he attacked me from behind and had his manager
choke me out with a coat hanger until I was bleeding
internally. Which in turn kept me out of action for
a couple of weeks.
I finally was able to come back I took a page out
of Iceberg's notebook and attacked HIM after his big
cage match. Clotheslining him so hard it knocked Iceberg
silly and since then the war is on! I won't stop until
I take his precious title away and/or can get my hands
on his Bailey which ever comes first!
are your stats?
next for your career?
being mentioned in the same breath as Wildside legends
like AJ Styles and David Young. Become apart of the
NWATNA roster or go back to Japan but this time full-time.
What's your motto?
To be the best Heavyweight that has ever came from
note: Don't bet against him.
