So yeah, the ball is rolling on this blog and I'm actually quite proud of myself for that. Putting words on a blank slate always intimidated me, but the response so far has been positive, so why not keep on going?
I know that the topic I chose can be a VERY broad one, especially for me. I wanted to challenge myself as I'm not very good at talking about myself (seriously I'm not), so a broad spectrum seems like the perfect thing to dig into for this entry.
When I say "My World", or anyone else says "My World", it almost makes you wonder what exactly that means. We all live on the same planet, on this Earth. But I believe that we view this giant rock in so many different ways, and interpret things that this planet does and has so differently from person to person. For instance, someone may be dedicated to literally only spending their lives photographing wildlife across the globe. Someone else may spend their days out at sea. Some unfortunate others will spend their days in a negative environment, while others live in luxury. The world around us is shared, but our section of the world, our STORY, is what makes our world, "our world".
My own personal world is centered around many different things. Mostly, I am a very devoted Christian, devoted to family, my fiancé, my close circle of friends, and Professional Wrestling. Obviously, along with wrestling comes diet and fitness. This world of mine is one that I would not trade for anything, because my journey has put me through so many emotions, that I feel like I have lived a full life and I'm not even 25 years old.
First of all, everything I do has to be morally correct for me. I have been devoted to Christ since a young age, and morally, I want to always do the right thing for Him and for my overall faith in general. My family has been the backbone of support for me throughout my career. This family, which consists of my parents, my grandparents, cousins, aunts, uncles, etc., have all supported me since day one of my Professional Wrestling career. They would have supported me regardless of the career path that I chose, and I know this for an absolute fact. I guarantee that if someone on here is reading this and knows me, or has seen me wrestle, they have also met my parents. For eight years, they have traveled and supported every part of this journey, even as far as to take picture and video footage at events so I can improve in the ring, and post content on social media as needed (which I need to work on more).
My fiancé, a former wrestler named Taylor Kubat, has been pushing me to better myself in and out of the ring since she almost wiped me out with a ring pole in Fort Worth, TX in June of 2016 during an event set up. It's ironic that our meeting happened at the time that it did, because that very next day, she would leave for Florida in (what she assumed) would be her last few wrestling events. So, maybe if that meeting never happened in Fort Worth, she and I never would have met. After all, she lived in Tulsa, Oklahoma at the time, so it's not like I would just randomly run into her again otherwise. Through ups and a few downs, we do our best to build each other up and talk. I think that actually talking to somebody is almost a lost art nowadays, and holding things in (which I am PHENOMENAL AT) can be unhealthy. So for her to continue to support my dream in Pro Wrestling, and for me to support her dream in equestrian horseback riding, we both share as much positive energy as possible when we are not absolutely driving one another batsh*t crazy. ****IF YOU ARE READING THIS, I LOVE YOU AND YOU DONT DRIVE ME CRAZY (DONT KILL ME)****
Speaking of her and immediate family, there is a VERY cool project that myself and my Papaw (my granddad) are working on, and it is gonna blow some people away. For work, I help him with his construction business around our immediate area. Currently, we are working on a new place locally for Taylor and I, and I could not be happier with how quickly it is coming along, and how efficient it is going to be in many ways. Again, I am obviously hiding something about this, so stay tuned for details as we continue the project.
My close circle of friends is a relatively small one because I was not the most social child in school. However, I got along with pretty much everyone, and I could literally be welcomed into any "clique" that was formed inside Mabank High School. Funny thing is that some of the kids that did not truly know me, could not figure me out. I overheard some of my buddies say that some people were actually somewhat intimidated by me in school because of the blank stare I would have. You have to understand, even though I did fantastic scholastically, that did not mean that my heart was into it. In a sense, I only existed in school. Yes, I enjoyed my friends and the company, and yes I enjoyed learning certain things, but my Sophomore year of high school, I began training to wrestle. At that point, I wanted to go to school, get it done, and go train or learn more about the sport that I knew I was destined to be a part of.
Professional Wrestling. The thing and the passion that gave me a new lease on life. When you talk Pro Wrestling, you're talking about a big part of my world. This sport that so many people shun and look down on is something that I have dedicated my entire adult life into pursuing. Slowly, year after year, I reach new milestones in the business and hear new voices and achieve new possibilities. The end goal of wrestling is not what I enjoy, because my current world revolves around this story that is being written while getting to that final destination. This story is being told through me and shared through my family, my fiancé, my faith, my friends, my struggles, my triumphs, and my unending desire to be remembered as somebody that left Professional Wrestling, and this world that we all share, a better place.
My world is your world just with a very different perspective and meaning than some others, including some reading this entry, may have.
THAT is my world, and as always, I am so happy that the eyes reading this are attached to somebody taking the time to listen to my story and care.
Please keep sending your feedback and responses. This is only starting, and I could not be prouder.
Also, what is your story? What is "your world"? Let me know. Let's make a difference.
See you soon.
