371.jpgWith zero parental support, my brother and I needed to figure out a way to make money while wrestling in high school and college; this led to us starting Meathead Movers with our friends. Wrestling was our passion, in fact, our first logo was a wrestler, see below, and we have stayed connected with the wrestling community, never forgetting where we come from or who we are deep down. This unique sport has helped shape us and millions of men and women around the world into hard working and confident people. On February 13, 2013, the International Olympic Committee’s recommendation to eliminate wrestling hit all the media channels. At first, we were surprised and confused, then hurt, then furious and later deeply passionate to do WHATEVER we can to protect the sport that has shaped our character. Apparently, we were not alone. With just one Facebook post over sixty wrestlers showed up to my office for a single day of video shooting and we created a short video to share a little about how this sport has impacted those in our small community.
