TJ Perkins

In the previous post, there was a photo of a masked wrestler from Lucha Libre USA named Sydistiko. Sydistiko is actually 26 year old Filipino-Irish-American indie wrestler TJ Perkins. Would you believe that TJ started wrestling professionally at the age of 15? He was perceived to look too young so he was made to wear a mask. To get to the wrestling arena, the older wrestlers would pick him up from school early on Fridays. TJ has since wrestled under different names like Pinoy Boy (Pinoy means Filipino), JT Quinn, Cobra II, and Puma. He's no longer wrestling as Sydistiko (Paul London has taken over as Sydistiko II), but he's still active in the indie circuit. (Photos by Christine Coons)
