Quinn O. Ojinnaka played football at Syracuse and was selected by the Atlanta Falcons in the 5th round of the 2006 NFL draft. The offensive lineman spent four seasons with the Falcons, followed by one each with the New England Patriots, Indianapolis Colts and St. Louis Rams. In all, he played in 62 gams, starting 20.
When his football career ended in 2012, he embarked on a wrestling career, first training with Curtis Hughes. He made his debut for Dragon Gate USA. He then wrestled for Global Force Wrestling, Ring of Honor, New Japan and Impact Wrestling, where he currently calls home.
Wrestling as Moose, he has already racked up a few titles and awards. He was names Rookie of the Year for 2015 by Pro Wrestling Illustrated. He held the Impact World Championship and a few other titles in Impact.
One look at him and you immediately know why he is called Moose. The guy is massive. Even among other wrestlers, Moose stands out.
At Blizzard Brawl a couple years ago, I was looking for Moose and he was easy to find, even wearing a jacket and sitting down. He is as nice as he is big.
Moose was one of the highlights for me that year, but every year, there are plenty of great wrestlers at Blizzard Brawl. It's a great night of wrestling meet-and-greets, followed by a full card of wrestling. They have about 25 wrestlers meeting fans and/or wrestling and there is plenty of time to meet them all. It really is a fantastic time.
This year, Blizzard Brawl takes place Saturday, December 2. For more info, go to GLCWWrestling.com.
