#Throwback to 2013, and hard to believe 2 of the men in this video are no longer with us. . Jon Ian was the first promoter in Southern California to give me a wrestling home in the form of Mach 1 Wrestling when I arrived to Southern California in 2009. Through Mach 1, I met @cwfhmarquez and eventually through that connection met Percy Pringle/Paul Bearer who became my manager for around 3 years at @cwfhollywood . I’m incredibly grateful to all these men, and Jon Ian in particular for welcoming me to Mach 1, which ultimately led to many lucky occurrences and good fortunes going forward in my wrestling career. . I’m really bummed to hear of his passing, especially since i haven’t seen him in around 2 years. My condolences to his family, and to Jon Ian, I will be forever grateful. Thank you and Rest In Peace
