Current WWE Superstar R-Truth recently spoke with Charlotte Magazine about a number of topics, including how he broke into the professional wrestling industry.
“‘I thought I could make a living selling drugs,’ he says. While incarcerated he was discovered by Jack Crockett, son of the late Jim Crockett, who brought wrestling to Charlotte in the 1940s. Jack Crockett offered to pay for his training. Each night after he wrestled, Killings would break down the rings. The next day, he would help put them back up. Killings, who had already been in and out of jail numerous times when he started working with Crockett, says his benefactor helped put him on a better path.”
