Hey wrestling fans I'm back with some more on Indie Wrestler, Orlando Savage. I had the distinct pleasure of talking to this young man on the phone.
He is intelligent, charismatic, young and savvy, and humble. He takes his craft seriously. Orlando is like a young, straight-edged CM Punk.
When asked about the money aspect of it, he replied "I hardly make anything. I once traveled 100 miles just to wrestle in front of eight people. I received $20.00. I didn't really mind because I was doing what I love doing and that is to wrestle."
He also said that there were times when he couldn't afford to eat because he wanted to save the money for gas to get to his matches that a lot of the time, took him out of state.
Again he didn't mind because of his love for the extreme sport he is so good at, wrestling. He has what it takes to make it in the business.
I also asked him if his dad ever took him to matches when he was younger. He told me that was how he got hooked in the first place. " I knew way back then that I wanted to be a wrestler and be in the WWE," he says.
Wrestling is his life, its the air that he breathes, the dreams that he dreams at night. Orlando eats, drinks, and breathes wrestling. He also says that its his second skin.
Recently, Savage did a try out for Shockwave and said he did pretty well. They want to see him again and maybe set him up in some matches.
Orlando has sacrificed so much in his young life so he can continue his craft. He is very dedicated. Savage isn't just a flash in the pan, he's the real deal.
I cannot express enough and there isn't enough words to describe this young man. There's more to him that meets the eye, but its all good. I never in my life met someone so loyal and dedicated to something as Orlando is to wrestling.
When we talk on the phone its all about his career how much he wants to work for the WWE. He has all the right moves and says he learns more and more everyday.
Ohio has a hot ticket with Orlando. All he needs is the right people to watch him. Bret "The Hitman" Hart has seen him in the ring and thinks he's good. So why isn't anyone picking him up?
Maybe its because his name isn't Hulk Hogan, John Cena, Triple H, or Jeff Hardy. His name is Orlando Savage. And to be perfectly honest, there is no doubt in my mind or ever has been where Savage belongs. That my friend is in the WWE.
