I always like following someone's journey from the beginning. I can't recall following anyone farher back than Kal Herro, though.
Long before he was "The Fanny Pack Kid," Kal was a toddler seen at Great Lakes Championship Wrestling events with his dad promoter and #SuperFriend David. I remember Kal almost from when he started walking.
Watching his growth in life and wrestling has been amazing. It's been fun, exciting, heartwarming and more, all rolled into one young man's life.
Right from the start, Kal seemed to have the "it" factor. He had a sparkle in his eye. He had personality even without speaking. The kid didn't fall far from poppa Dave's tree either.
Kal is grew up with wrestling legends, teaching and guiding him, but none of that would matter if Kal hadn't put in the work and dedication. Nothing has been handed to Kal. He has earned everything he gets and more.
He is currently wrestling and learning at Ohio Valley Wrestling, run by his "uncle" Al Snow. He already holds tag team gold with Dustin Jackson as The Fanny Pack Party and had some great matches against Jesse Godderz, OVW National Heavyweight champ. I am not going on a limb by proclaiming Kal will one day (soon) be in the major promotions (WWE, AEW or Impact). This young man is that good.
Saturday, February 26, Kal will once again be in action, as part of a six-man tag match at Release the Titan, featuring Adam Scherr (fka WWE's Braun Strowman). I will be "On the Beat" reporting on all the action.
