That's that's the whole thing that was a hard part because I kind of tapered off in ninety six was arrested in full-time anymore. Started training going road. Wrestling guys were with the guys I was training. Sometimes. So even when I got released because I'm still training gas is still in but. Released twice in this last time. It took me a little longer because I was so used to being around it. And so used to doing what I was doing. And it took me good. I thought probably about three years to you know, because you're not calling everybody. You know, I stayed in touch with a couple of people from there. But then again, we don't see everybody all the time. You don't talk all the time. And it's just everybody gets busy doing things. And you know, it is one of those things even even to this day. You know, you're still wired different. Just for the fact of what you've done, and I think about that ad never really had a normal life. No matter growing up or it's eventually when it got the especially when Mark Lewin came into my life. I thought oh my God. Gazes?

I think that's going to be a part of it. You know, maybe not the main part anymore. But at the same time, you something so much ingrained in me for all my life that I don't think I'll ever fully get that feeling outta me. Man. I had some some high times a low times on a road. Like a lot of guys did. And then again, van I got out of the business and the woman I ended up marrying was never professed a wrestling fan as she was a special education teacher and some of her students brought a calendar to class and she saw him in a gym.
