McKenzie’s native son Isaac Melton has been infatuated with televised wrestling for as long as he could remember and dreaming of someday becoming a professional wrestler. Undeterred, even as he served a six-year tour as a Marine in the U.S. Armed Forces, he has never given up on his dream.
The last two years has been a serious struggle for Isaac’s dream chasing. He has worked a full time job at ServePro while performing in the wrestling rings all over the U.S. on the independent circuits, struggling to be noticed. Now it seems that elusive opportunity has come in the form of what some would call a Christmas wish.
The World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) has finally noticed Isaac’s talent and drive and invited him down for a try-out. Less than one percent of all wrestlers ever receive such an invitation.
The tryout is a grueling four day test consisting of ring drills, cardio, basic fundamentals and promos; basically everything it takes to be professional wrestling superstar. Isaac is headed for the Performance Center in Orlando Florida.
