I first encountered Resistance Pro Wrestling last year at Wizard World. Since then, I have been featuring R-Pro regularly here and have enjoyed their live wrestling shows at Excalibur. During the course of my learning all about R-Pro, I came across Tommy Else aka T3.
Tommy is a Chicago area guy and also a fan of R-Pro. Actually, he is more than a fan. He is trying to become part of R-Pro.
Tommy has his own site, The T3 Universe. You can read about his audition for R-Pro here. It is a great story, full of passion and real emotion. Making his experience even better was meeting Billy Corgan, one of his favorites.
The story doesn't end there though. Tommy started a campaign to get into the R-Pro organization. You can read about that campaign here and here and here. Tommy manages to show the passion, emotion and humor of a wrestling vet. I have seen a lot of wrestlers and Tommy could easily make a name for himself with the right breaks.
Tommy made his Resistance debut recently for the Vicious Circle event. He is aligned with D'Arcy Dixon as part of Team D'Arcy. I am really hoping to talk to both of these Resistance stars at Obsession on March 23.
I really appreciate Tommy sharing all of this here. I think he has a great future and I am looking forward to watching his career develop.
