For 5 years now, the world of professional wrestling has enthralled me, especially the WWE. In July of 2003 I saw my first ever professional wrestling show, Smackdown. I was so captivated by the magic of the business. From that day forward the WWE wasn't just a sport for me it was a way of life. Ever since then I have collected EVERY magazine, action figure, poster, card, game, shirt, CD, DVD, and anything else I could get my hands on.
Every one at school knows me as the wrestling guy and as all those people seemed to grow further and further from WWE and wrestling as they got older, I only became more passionate and devoted to WWE.
Growing up they were modern day heroes for me, I never really got into superheroes like Batman or Superman, but for me the WWE Superstars and Divas filled that role.
I went to my first WWE live event back in February of 2005, at the Palace. I was an experience I will never forget. Words cannot describe the feeling that you get when you are at a WWE live event, there is just this atmosphere that sweeps over the entire arena and it is the best feeling in the world.
Since then I have attended Survivor Series at Joe Louis Arena, an episode of Raw at the Joe also, and last but certainly not least Wrestlemania 23 at the Ford Field. That night was the single greatest moment in my life, and it was the moment I knew that I wanted to become a wrestler. I want to walk out of the curtain one-day and hear the crowd chant my name, that is my one dream, to become the WWE champion.
I know that my story isn’t as sad as some of the others in the contest, but this is my dream and by winning this contest I would become one step closer to realizing my dream. WWE is my way of life and without it I don't think I would have turned into the strong, positive, and outgoing person that I am today.
