|I started my career as a Professional Wrestler back in 1980 after being trained by "Killer" Kowalski in his Salem Mass. training camp. So, for the purpose of this site I'll focus on my wrestling career and try not to get to heavy into my personal life......I hate mixing business with pleasure.|
After getting my start in the business wrestling for the International Wrestling Federation (IWF), which gave me the opportunity to work with some of the great names that have become legendary in the business (The Valliant Brothers, Domenic Denucci, Larry Zbysko, Manuel Soto, Louis Martinez, etc.), I started booking myself with other various Indy promotions. I held the Tag-team championship with Sweet Daddy White in the Continental Wrestling Alliance (CWA), were I met and began working with D.C. "mad dog" Drake. My partnership with Drake lasted for a few years during which time we worked extensively with the National Wrestling Federation (NWF), and even did most of the booking and T.V. production for them as well. During the NWF years is where I worked with several other superstars such as, Abdullah the Butcher, Bruiser Brody, Superstar Billy Graham, Sgt. Slaughter, The Wild Samoans, Dr. "D" David Schultz, Kevin Sullivan, etc. BTW thats also when a young photographer by the name of Paul Heyman started actually working as a commentator before we gave him his first break as a manager named Paul E. Dangerously.
Besides wrestling we also toured the country speaking out against drug and alcohol abuse at several area schools whenever our schedule would allow. I must say that was some of the most rewarding experience I had during my lifetime. There is no better feeling in the world than knowing you made a difference in the lives of so many of those kids.
Because of the Hardcore style of wrestling I had grown into during the NWF era, the ECW (Extreme Championship Wrestling) was a natural fit for a guy like me, and that's also where I wound up working for Paul Heyman (a strange twist of fate). By late 1996 I had made the decision to drop out of the wrestling scene along with my partner/wife Lady Alexandra to start a family. And since I already said I didn't want to talk about my personal life here......all you need to know for now is that.......well, you'll just have to stop by and check out my site from time to time and I'll keep you posted.
To Be Continued.........
