This could be a long one! So yesterday was slightly surreal. For years I've been a fan of pro wrestling and watched it religiously every week and gone to live shows, admiring the athleticism of the people the other side of the barriers...yesterday, was the first time I was on them otherside of those barriers!
I've wanted to do this for years but like many things as a kid I decided not to due to being bullied in school and worrying what others would say or laugh at me for doing it. Not far off exactly a year ago I decided to do it, with me being in a better place 10 stone lighter and have boxing experience behind me and taking myself out of my comfort zone.
In my eyes yesterday was a big 'f*ck you' to the people that bullied me and made me feel like I couldn't do anything, yesterday just proved you can do whatever you want if you set your mind to it!
Sure, I've had funny comment and laughs along the way but it is what it is but after all the training and long days yesterday was all worth it! I want to thank @the_hybrid_theory85
for the training he has put into me and the rest of the academy, the countless hours of his own time, @curtis.eley
for putting on a great first match with me and all the rest of the boys at @allstylepro
for everything and for us all putting on a sick first show yesterday!
Here's to many more in the future!
