Many stars have shared their success stories in the crowded genre of professional wrestling autobiographies. But for every star, there are a hundred also-rans, those of us who fell short of our dreams.
We, too, have a story to tell.
In my autobiography, The Somebody Obsession: A Nobody's Desperate Journey to Stardom, I reveal how I overcame a troubled, impoverished childhood to live my dream as a professional wrestler. I had to succeed; failure meant damnation back into the white-trash hell from which I came. While self-medicating the scars of a tormented youth with sex, booze, and wrestling, I reached for the stars and could feel them at my fingertips before my amazing ride crashed to an abrupt end.
My story is The Bullpen Gospels meets I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell. Funny and poignant, it is about overcoming challenges and shows that sometimes the dreamer's biggest obstacle is often the one that stares back at him in the mirror.
