Dear Wild Samoan Training Center, First of all, I would like to thank Afa and Lynn for giving me an opportunity to do something I love more than life, which is to wrestle. I want to personally thank Afa for taking me off the streets away from the gangs, drugs and the rest of the trouble that surrounds me. By letting me wrestle, Afa has given me goals to succeed in life as well as in wrestling. Wrestling has changed my life completely. I don't get into trouble in school anymore, but I'm still having a little trouble in school. Then again, I always had trouble in school. I know with Afa and Lynn's help, I can change that too. Basically what I'm trying to say is "thank you" Pops And Mom for giving me something positive and good in my life. I will never forget it and I will always love you for that, always. Sincerely Your Son, Junior (Havoc) Allentown, P.A.
New WXW Champion, a member of Usos:
By Eric Shaffer, WXW Staff
World Xtreme Wrestling has a new Heavyweight Champion, and he is a proud graduate of the Wild Samoan Training Center and an exemplary member of the charitable organization known as Usos. The Usos foundation was created by Afa the Wild Samoan and is named for the Samoan words for "brotherhood" or "we are brothers". One of the goals of the program is to enhance the lives of young people by giving them positive outlets and keeping them away from negative influences. One of these youths saw his dream come true, as "Hurricane" Havoc turned his life around and is now the WXW Heavyweight Champion. The former WXW Television Champion and Wrestler of the Month (July 2002) rose through the ranks and took home the top prize on November 12th 2005. But this success story was nearly five years in the making. As a teenager, Havoc came to the Wild Samoan Training Center in hopes of becoming a professional wrestler. Through his Usos foundation, Afa emphasizes the importance of hard work and goal setting rather than giving in to outside pressures that youths may find on the streets. This is precisely what Havoc was looking to do. Before joining Usos and the Wild Samoan Training Center, Havoc admitted to having difficulty in school and trying to stay away from the temptations of drugs and gang violence. Through Afas motivation and tough love, Havoc strived to live his dream as a professional wrestler and it paid off through the next five years of training and wrestling. At a recent match in his hometown of Allentown, Pennsylvania, Havoc defeated Bison Bravado to earn the WXW Heavyweight Title. The family values that Afa instills in his trainees was immediately evident following Havoc's match. Before he could even thank anyone, Havoc was joined in a proud congratulatory embrace by his younger brother who has idolized him from the start of his career, even once dressing as him for a Halloween costume contest! In an emotional interview, Havoc then told the crowd that he never thought he would make it to the top of what he loved doing, and had overcome many obstacles to get there. He was extremely grateful of Afa the Wild Samoan for believing in him and giving him a chance to make a difference and prove himself. On behalf of the Usos Foundation, World X-Treme Wrestling, the Wild Samoan Training Center and its extended families, we would like to proudly congratulate "Hurricane" Havoc on living his dream and overcoming the odds to make it to the top!
