I was born and raised in MIAMI FL, I am the second youngest of five children.
Growing up, I was a simple kid; as long as I was able to eat and play, I was a happy camper. The first time I was exposed to wrestling was back in 1997. I remember walking in to the living room on my oldest brother watching television at the age of 7. I seen a guy with a costume on hitting another guy with a steel chair, and then he did a weird dance. I found that to be very funny and cool. I sat down next to my brother, and begin to watch. I asked him what is this, and he replied "This is professional wrestling." From that point on, my oldest brother and I would watch wrestling all the time. I thank god for exposing me to Wrestling, because it kept me out of the streets and out of trouble. In the afternoon when I came home from school, my brother and I used to wrestle in the house when my mom was at work. Sorry about the coffee table mom.
Wrestling became part of me in a big way. I began to emulate my favorite wrestlers when I was in school. A young kid walking down the halls as if he was Undertaker, or have the charisma of The Rock. I soon realized that wrestling was me, and this what I wanted to do with my life. This is my dream.
I did Amateur, freestyle, and Greco Roman wrestling in high school. I have had some setbacks that prevented from doing what I love, including neck surgery, a 2% chance of living, but God has given me a second chance in life. The opportunity to live out my dream. I approach every day now as if it was my last. Showing love, being understanding, and believing God at his worlds " I can do all things through our lord who strength is within me."
Given this chance and opportunity from the Wild Samoan family and Usos Foundation is a great honor for a young man such as myself, to be able to live out his dream.
