We’ve never shared the ring together, but pro wrestlers all have a very special bond.
Pro wrestling is a very unique, intense and wild culture that’s not for everybody. When you love the wrestling business, you become very respectful about the wrestling business. And when you’re respectful about the wrestling business, you become PASSIONATE about the wrestling business. It seeps deep into your DNA.
Fans can always sense who’s passionate inside that squared circle ~ and who’s not.
This man is passionate. We share that DNA. (And he flys like the Superfly)
Keep kicking ass brother and give my love to your family.
And when you become world champion one day, I’ll be right there rooting ya on” – posted Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson.
