Good things come to those who wait. GREAT things come to those who HUSTLE whilst they wait. . I’ve been waiting months & months for my US visa to be accepted, I could’ve sat on my arse and done nothing but if you know me you know I’m a grafter and I’ve used this time wisely. I’ve been grafting under an arch in East London. Learning the basics of the wonderful sport/business that is pro wrestling, at the finest wrestling school in Europe, the @london_school_of_lucha_libre. Learning from British wrestling legends @gregburridge & @vanderhorne and all the amazing young talent they are nurturing at LSLL (keep an eye out for the next @willospreay). Thank you guys for having me and introducing me to what is to come, and thank you for giving me my first, of what I hope will be many, ‘holy sh*t’ chants 🙌🏽. . Shout out to all the boys and girls at LSLL thanks for your patience and advice, I’m sorry for whom I accidentally leave out. @markroe_ @thekeinen @lordbengston @eros_diablo @callumnewman.p.o.p @malik_pw @thekosta_k @clementineprowrestler @theodore.cameron @murdoch_pw @beaumanvisual @brunobrownpw @bobbi_champagne_jr @neoncassius @coal_girl @ninasamuels123 @tengu_pw @wrestletechkid @thealeahjames
I’m thrilled about this signing. Anthony will be our first developmental project as a company. For those who followed his boxing career and saw his Olympic acumen, you’ll be happy to see he’s now applying that passion and work-ethic to pro-wrestling training. Welcome Anthony! https://t.co/QLARQOTbof— Cody (@CodyRhodes) October 26, 2019
