Here we go people, it's 2021! I wish you all the best of the best in the new year.

There are three people that have changed my life...One I lost in 2020, one I live with, and the other is "The Mouth of The South" Jimmy Hart. Sounds kinda weird, huh? Let me explain.

Back in the early 2000's it was WCW vs WWF....pro wrestling was riding an incredible wave with competing products, what an awesome time. I grew up a huge wrestling fan, so when I received a call from WCW one day, asking if I would like to wrestle on WCW Nitro, in Rockford, whoa...mind blown.

I grabbed Double T as my manager, and climbed into the ring in front of a sold out Rockford Metro Centre. What a way to "start" my pro wrestling adventure.

"The Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart, the legendary manager, was across the ring from me and I was pumped...How in the world could I NOT beat a manager?? About half way through the match, the WCW team "Three Count" made their way to the ring and attempted to spoil my debut. (Editors note, I can still HEAR the sound of Gregory Helm's fist flying past my face, holy sh*t.)

In the end, I was victorious as Double T slid into the ring and took the place of the injured referee...sorry dude. After that show, I was approached by an independent wrestling promoter out of Chicago...long story short, I spent the next 12 years wrestling. THANK YOU JIMMY HART.

Tonight is WWE RAW Legends Night...Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair, the list of WWE legends is as long at the tails on Jimmy Harts jackets, baby! Check out the action on the USA Network beginning at 7 pm.

Here is my interview with WWE Hall of Famer, my friend, "The Mouth of the South" Jimmy Hart.
