Hello everyone



I recently discovered the boards on a google search (I was looking into vegetarian body building/fitness models and such). Anywho, I looked around for a bit, and decided to join!



Sooo..I guess I should introduce myself. My name's Laura, and my journey to becoming a vegetarian started about five years ago. I cut out meat when I was about fourteen, and about six months later went completely vegan (my poor mom had noo idea how to feed me). I wasn't educated on being vegan, so as you can imagine I got really weak, and skinny, it wasn't pretty. I started incorporating meat back into my diet after about three years of being vegan. It was challenging at first, because I dont like the taste of meat at all, but I did what I thought I had to do. For about a year I studied, and learned as much as I could about becoming vegetarian, and what I needed to include in my diet, etc. Six months ago, I took meat out of my diet completely (not cold turkey, it was gradual for about a month), and now I'm completely meat free, however, I still eat dairy, (skim milk, cheese, yogurt, etc). I haven't gone vegan yet, however, it is a goal that I am working towards! I feel SOOO good, and my energy is fantastic!



Other than being a vegetarian, I am also a Professional Wrestler! I wrestle all over Ontario, and am now branching into Quebec, and the States!



What else ...hmmm..OH! I have a wonderful little ****-a-poo named Hulk Hogan, and I work for a gym



WOW, that was a long introduction! LOL



Can't wait to meet everyone and strike up some interesting conversations!!



Take Care!!!



- Laura

Welcome!



I'm a fan of pro wrestling myself (I'm not involved in the industry, just a smark ). Just curious, who did you first train with?



How do the other folks in the locker room react to the way you eat? If they are even aware, that is. Vegetarians always can fall back on, "well, Killer Kowalski was a vegetarian ..." if anyone gets lippy.

Thank you for the warm welcoming!!



Dave:



I was trained at Squared Circle Training by Rob Fuego, and I was also trained at the Neo Spirit Dojo by Danger Boy Derek Wylde, TJ Harly, and Shawn Spears.



Not too many people in the wrestling world know that I am a vegetarian, I guess because I never felt the need to tell them, lol. I've been questioned by the people who know that I am, but most of them are very respectful and if anything are curious as to how I survive (sounds dramatic, but seriously true!). I've actually introduced tofu to some of them, and they were pleasantly surprised!



So tell me, who are your fav wrestlers?

Hi Laura, Welcome to VB! Wrestling isn't my thing, but I think you'll be an interesting addition to the board anyway.

Hello and welcome to VB! Welcome back to the wonderful world of veg*nism. I hope you can manage to migrate back to being a vegan, if that is your goal! It also sounds like you're up to the task of being the healthy type this time

Wow, that's one of the most unusual professions I think I've seen here! I take it you mean the um, cable television type of wrestling and not the greco-roman type?

Okay, this has got to be the most fascinating introduction thread I have ever read. I've never met a wrestler before.



Well, welcome to VB!

Kinda fun looking over those Ontario Independant Wrestling sites. Been awhile since I went surfing the indy sites. Don't think I ever ended up there before.

Easy, I'm a huge Chris Jericho fan. The guy handles the mic like no other. Decent ring skills too.



When he debuted on RAW (the first time ... years ago) ... the only time a televised wrestling show has brought me to my feet, whoopin and hollerin and generally making a fool of myself. Good thing I was in the privacy of my own apartment



I guess ya had to be there ....

Very nice!



Here are some highlights for those who may just want to watch bits and pieces:
  • working up the crowd at the beginning - I like it! you must be the "good guy" lol
  • move at 3:10 was pretty good
  • 3:54 and 3:59 must have been painful
  • by the way, does the PA ever shut up?
  • awesome move at 5:38
  • wow, you're getting her butt kicked the entire match, then pull a Hulk Hogan at the end
  • awesome move at 9:18 to win it
  • opponent is really pissed at 9:44 (think fish)
