An excerpt from spencerdailyreporter.com, interviewing TNA star Davey Richards…
I actually lived in Cleveland, Tenn., near the Georgia border. I worked in the factory all day then I would drive an hour-and-a-half to train. I would drive back home and dragged myself into my little apartment. There was a few times during the day I’d find a place to take a quick nap.”
A good portion of his work, until joining TNA, was done in Japan and England.
He and Edwards worked for the same company in Japan but hadn’t worked together.
“Finally we were on the same tour and we started talking about it (partnering). We randomly got booked on same show in England,” Richards explained, and as the saying goes, “It’s been a wild history, but the rest is history.”
He said the two had done everything there was to do on the independent circuit and began looking for a bigger, more permanent contract. They took an opportunity presented by TNA.
“We’ve never looked back. Couldn’t be happier with TNA,” he said. “It’s been great.”
Richards said he doesn’t mind the hectic lifestyle he has maintained.
“I’ve slept in my car, slept on the floor, not slept at all. I’ve chased this thing all over the world,” he said.
