Where Are They Now: Jimmy Wang Yang



WWE.com has it’s latest “Where Are They Now” article up, with former WCW & WWE star Jimmy Wang Yang.

Life has always been a party for Jimmy Wang Yang. He lived out his childhood fantasies in the squared circle from the moment he graduated high school, travelling the world as a member of the WCW and WWE rosters. Today, he’s keeping the party going with a unique business venture — Jimmy’s Redneck Party Bus, a Cincinnati-based celebration on four wheels.

It may sound like an unexpected career turn for the man born James Yun, but the truth is that everything about his career has been unexpected. He can trace his beginnings back to a Halloween night in suburban Georgia. A die-hard wrestling fan, Yun had heard that WCW star Diamond Dallas Page lived in the area and hatched a simple plan to meet him.

“We went to every house until we found DDP,” he said with a laugh. “He was really cool. He was so much cooler than I would have been to fans stalking my house.”

After getting a picture with the former WCW Champion, Yun told DDP that he was interested in becoming a wrestler. He didn’t expect the response he got from Page.
