Whatever Happened To....

When I started Beefcakes of Wrestling in 2010, I featured several independent wrestlers who looked like they would have long and promising careers. But things happen and now these wrestlers seem to have dropped off the radar. Here are a few who were featured on this blog from 2010 to 2011. To see their older posts, click on their names in the label section below.
Johnny Prime aka Lucky Cannon

David Flex

Truitt Fields

Jon Cutler

Lupe Santiago

Troy Jackman

Eric Priest

Jason Static

Ricky Williams aka Ricky Ortiz

Jason Steele

The Troublemaker


15 comments:

  1. Jason Static wrestles as Dr. Fixit. Priest is retired.Truitt Fields married, has a little boy and works for an energy company. Flex, I think, worked a bit under his real name, Meyers (?). Steele got a bit tubby, but was in South Africa, so is hard to find. Cutler still wrestles occasionally in Canada. Prime and Jackman probably retired after being released from FCW, I think Santiago went into bodybuilding, all probably reverted to their real names, which makes them hard to find. No idea about Troublemaker.

  15. So, basically what Anonymous said in one email.
    Static's 2014 matches and his Twitter, e.g., can be found if one Googles "Dr. William Fixit."
