Williams has always been a wrestling fan so it was a dream come true for him. He was trained by one of the best trainers and minds out there in the wrestling business Scott D’Amore.

Sports and Wrestling

Over the years sports athletes have crossed over to wrestling world. A prime example of this was when the biggest wrestler at the time in Hollywood Hogan teamed with everybody favorite bad boy Dennis Rodman. This was a match that was made in heaven for the time. They took on Diamond Dallas Page and Karl Malone at 1998 WCW Bash at the Beach. Hogan and Rodman won the match and it turned out to be the biggest payday for the company. Other athletes who have made the cross over to wrestling successfully were Kevin Greene, Steve McMichael in WCW and finally Adam Pacman Jones in TNA.
