#tbt To a crazier time in my life of winning my 1st wrestling title while learning how to "hustle and cut my teeth" in Memphis.
Before the bright lights of the WWE, I started my wresting career in the U.S.W.A (United States Wrestling Association) based out of Memphis, TN. I drove over 2000 miles every week to wrestle in flea markets, state fairs, high school gyms and my personal favorite - wrestling in the parking lots of used car dealerships all throughout the south. Grinding away all for a contractual guarantee of making $40 bucks a match. True story. I had no bread and nothing to lose, but willing to drop sweat and blood nightly 'cause I was doing something I was passionate about. The night I won this title, I celebrated the only way I knew how and certainly the only way I could afford - your boy at like a king at the Waffle House.
The takeaway here is never forget your hard times, find something you're passionate about and go after with relentless drive. And always take a moment to eat like kings and queens at the Waffle House.
