My mother was wrong.
For years, she told me that professional wrestling was a waste of time – a brain cell-melter. It was silly, she said, as she recommended that I use my time more wisely. I should be reading or studying or doing something to prepare me for life, she thought.
Well, she got it all wrong.
Turns out, that pro wrestling – or ‘wrasslin’ – prepared me just fine for my career. I couldn’t have picked a better way to get ready for a career covering the Alabama Legislature.
