I was born in Greece and learned quickly that I needed to know how to fight. We were poor. I became a Pro wrestler so I could protect myself. The chicks really dig me now. I came over to the US in 1988 and started my career. I'm a little older now and have started to write poems about my experiences in the ring. I once wrestled for the US Championship in 1996. I lost.
