Yo Brand!

It’s about 5:45 in the morning here in the Rockies so I thought I’d take a minute to check in.

It was only a short time ago that I vowed that I would blog on here every day, but obviously I haven’t been able to live up to that.

The circumstances that have taken place in my professional life over just the past 3 months have been a case of Divine Intervention, and I honestly mean that. It was only about 3 months ago that mutual friends brought myself and Matt Yaden together, and I started working with his gifted students at the Mercury Pro Wrestling Academy. Our goals were real simple—to build a solid regional territory in a state that we both love. That’s really all the two of us were setting out to do. National television wasn’t even on our radar, simply because it just wasn’t realistic.

So you can imagine how I felt when I was approached by a third-party asking me if I knew of any indy promotion that might fit the air time that he had on The Hunt Channel on the Dish Network. Immediately I thought it was all BS—I really did. I personally know of some wrestling companies who have been trying for YEARS to get their show on TV. But, in due time I realized it wasn’t when Matt was signing a legal, binding contract.

Man, I have no problem in telling you that Rocky Mountain Pro was NOT READY for this. Again—we had a plan, and a vision, and this WASN’T IT. But, when an opportunity like this knocks—you open that door. So, as you can imagine, the last couple of weeks have been all about getting RMP ready for TV, while trying to juggle RELM, PODCAST ONE, FIGHTFUL.COM , monthly PPV reviews for WRESTLING INC.com, and acting as the active commissioner for both NOW-THIS IS WRESTLING and VINTAGE MODERN WRESTLING, not to mention the other personal appearances I have made and committed to here and there.

Am I complaining? Hell no–I’m just a bit tired. When I was “released” of my duties as a consultant for TNA about 3 years ago–or, whatever it was I honestly don’t remember–I swear to you I had no idea what I was going to do next. I was quickly going through my savings and opportunities we just not presenting themselves to a 50+ year-old man with 20+ tears of wrestling experience. Depression was taking over my life and NOBODY wanted to give me an opportunity—NOBODY.

But—like I always say—GOD IS GREAT—my friends. I never lost faith in the Almighty One for a second. I knew he created me to do great things to glorify His Kingdom, but I also knew that everything was on His time . . . not mine.

So, as I get ready for yet another chapter of my life, please know how much I appreciate all of you who have supported me, my career and my family no matter what it was I was doing. You’ve always been there for me, even in my lowest of lows and I will FOREVER be grateful to you all.

The tattoo on my left wrist reads, “Don’t Stop Believin'” and I encourage you to NEVER STOP. Not for a day, not for a minute, not for a second. Be faithful to God and He will be grateful to you.

Love & Peace,




  1. Great pick me up this morning. I’m striving to put myself in a better financial situation so I can get married and buy a home an so forth. I try to keep my anxiety and depression at a low level but it creeps in when day to day gets frustrating. I have to really beat myself over the head to remember to just keep my faith and let God handle all the things in my life because I simply can not. I’m so stoked to get to see some real pro wrestling in October. You guys are going to knock it out of the park. Once you start on tv I’m just watching RMP and Impact. I won’t waste anymore time watching a show made by people who don’t care/don’t get it/or are just trolling their own fans. Love you, bro and that goes for the entire Brand.
