There is something that Professional Wrestling Manager Leroy Jenkins would like for you to know. Actually, I remember it like it was yesterday. During my childhood I didn’t have many friends but I had my grandfather. And we used to spend Saturday mornings eating cereal together and watching cartoons. When noon came around we always turned on channel 12 and for 2 hrs we would escape into the world of professional wrestling. We had our favorites of course—Dominick Denucci, Bobo Brazil and of course Bruno Sammartino—and we had the ones we villified—Superstar Billy Graham, Baron Scicluna, George Steele—–but no matter who was on I was always enthralled. I remember telling grandpa Joe “That’s gonna be me someday. I’m gonna be in that ring.” He always encouraged me but deep in his heart I knew he thought it was a moot point and i would always be just a fan.
You might not know this from watching me on the Pro Wrestling Fit International TV Show but,I have Aspergers Syndrome—a disorder that doesnt allow me to mature at the same rate as most “normal” people. I’ve been different since I was a kid and I will remain different til the day I die. Thats why I am forever grateful to Rick Love and Kevin Rhodes of CWFL who saw the passion in the silly 44 yr old “12 yr old” And gave me the chance to fulfill my childhood dreams.
Fast forward to the present. Whenever Leroy Jenkins comes to the ringside for Pro Wrestling Fit I always am reminded of Grandpa’s dying statement to me—“When we forget childhood memories and dreams we are an angry adult—but when we give up on those same dreams we are nothing but an immature brat.” The little kid inside of me comes out in every instance that Ed Couture keeps his life in the backstage area and Leroy Jenkins puts on a show.
Championship Wrestling from Florida is an incredible opportunity for wrestlers, managers, and fans alike to experience what “real wrestling” is all about. We have wrestlers of all shapes, sizes, an styles. We have legends of the past like Randy Starr, Tony Mulkey, and Redd Alert. We have up and coming superstars like Justin Cage, Moco Loco, and Lucas Taylor. We have super heavy weights, we have lightweights. Whatever your cup of tea you are sure to find it at EVERY CWFL show and in the ring at the PWF pro wrestling training center here in Florida.
But what we mostly have is a group of passionate individuals who’s main objective is to give every wrestling fan in Florida an experience they will always remember —and every kid out there a chance to live the dream the way I have.
For all you who are interested in fulfillling your dream of being a professional wrestler, manager, or referree—they have a training facility on site and you can be trained by experts who have many years in the business.
In closing I want to say that PWF has given this silly big kid a chance and taken him under their wing and making him feel like a true man and a professional performer. For that I am forever grateful. That is why I am very proud to be a part of this company. I hope that you will take the time to say hello to me in person at one of the live events, listen to me on the PWF Radio Show or even come hang out with me at the After Party at Gator’s Dockside in Ocoee where me and the rest of the guys from the TV Show like to hang out at night.
