Did you ever get to work in the ring?

I was at a WCW House show in Philly and during intermission, my friend Lyle ( was CZW Photographer) and myself were heading back towards our seats and a lady gave me her business card saying that she was a talent recruiter for ECW and to give Paul a call. So I did and I was invited to hang out at a couple of ECW shows in Philly and South Jersey. After having a meeting with Paul, Taz, Chris Chetti (who was the main trainer at the school in Long Island), I decided that I didn't want to leave my good paying job on a hope and a prayer. They wanted me to be Sandman's younger brother ( already had Blonde hair) and to gain a bit of a beer belly ( wouldn't have done). I would be at the shows and get TV time as I was training. They didn't offer me much money and that was the sticking point. They did send me to Pitbull #1 ( Anthony Durante) school in Hammonton NJ, which I did for 3 months. They wanted me to go to Long Island since I learned the "basics" for the angle and I could learn on the fly. I would eventually turn on Sandman and basically get my ass beat for several months after that.
