First, I would like to say Happy Belated Birthday! Second off, congrats on being honored on WWE.com's 'Where are They Now' page. I read each and everyone that's there as I find it really interesting and cool to see where many of my favorite wrestlers I grew with have moved on to. I also find it as great timing that you ended up on there around your birthday.
Now... to me that is what it is all about. To have spent over 30 years living my childhood dreams and be recognized by those who have enjoyed the fruits of my labor. I will never forget those of you that support me, especially your emails, thoughts and prayers.
As I wrote in my last BLOG, at this very moment all of my family are gathered in a Cathedral in St. Augustine, Florida as my niece Donna weds the love of her life Chris. Although I am at home unable to attend becaue of my choice to dedicate my life at this particular time to funeral service, I am there with my love and spirit; and Donna and Chris know that.
Well lastly, some say that the children suffer for the sins of the parents. What did I do to deserve this? The photo below is my youngest son Daniel, who is 20 years old and has trained for the past year; he now has a handful of professional matches under his belt. He has accomplished what he has done without too much assistance from me, as I have worked for wrestling families before and learned some valuable lessons from their mistakes. That is not saying that I am not here for him, nor will I not open the door for him when I think the time is right.
Daniel is using the the ring name "WCT D.J. Pringle." The WCT = World Class Texan, keeping in mind that he was born in 1987 when I was working for World Class in Dallas. D.J. = Daniel Joseph, his given name; and PRINGLE = well... well... well... no explanation necessary. Now to the photo below.... no words necessary here either. Lord... Lord... Lord... what have I done?
