Jimmy Rave is one of those guys who had a very rough childhood. He could have taken the winding road to the left and wound up with nothing but he choose to stay to the right and he took those horrible experiences as a young adult and turned them into life lessons and used them to strive to get to the top and achieve his goals. There is not going to be another emotional interview like this in 2018 as Jimmy Rave opened up about his early life and the struggles he faced. He was a run away living on the streets who had gone thru a lot of drama with his family, including abuse but he didn’t allow that to break him. He took it all in and only used it to make him stronger and fight the fight to become a star in the wrestling business. Once Jimmy found the world of professional wrestling it gave him goals and he strived to be the best in our business.

When we got to talk wrestling, he held nothing back. He has been in this business for nearly 20 years and has worked with the biggest names that are on National TV like AJ Styles, Bryan Danielson, CM Punk, Samoa Joe and everyone in between.
