Dustin has been a wrestling fan for most of his life. At age 16 he discovered an Indy show in his local area called EPW. One night Dustin snuck in the back door to watch the show. Apparently security in these days wasn’t much of a thing. After the first show he immediately became infatuated with the promotion and decided that it was something he wanted to be a part of. That night he met with the promoter and talked his way into a position writing online articles and covering the results for the promotion.
He would remain with the promotion until age 18 when then booker Izzy Rotten decided his services were no longer required. Dustin attempted to become a color commentator for the promotion’s local public access show, but Izzy would not allow Dustin to work onscreen.
Dustin then went to Corinth, MS where a rival promotion had opened up. On his first night the ring announcer for the show no-showed, the event leading to Dustin once again talking his way into a job with the booker of that show Justin “Bumpy” Rhodes.
After only a few weeks as a ring announcer Rhodes decided that Dustin was better suited to become a manager and arranged to have him trained at a local wrestling school. Three months later Dustin made his debut as the manager for the team of El Brujo and Richie Rage.
Almost one year later Dustin would return to EPW where he would continue his wrestling career for the next 14 years before going on hiatus in 2015.
Today his focus is primarily on The Smack Download Podcast, where along with his partner Jackson, he continues to create new exciting content every single week!
