Greetings and salutations.

TheDustinThomas here, you probably don't know me, but I write things here on Destructoid from time to time. Occasionally I get on the front page:

The Most Inexplicably-Often Rented Games At Blockbuster

The Top 10 Videogame Pro Wrestlers

A Retrospective of Pro Wrestling Videogames from the Perspective of a Pro Wrestler

I'm also the host of a pretty sexy gaming podcast that I do with a couple buddies of mine. You can download and subscribe to it here. You should totally do that.

All of my games writing you can find on DToid, but I also write about other things on my personal blog. Here's my top 5 most read blogs:

Let Me Tell You About My $250 T-Shirts

Tempting of the Doon

5 Ways Getting in Shape Has Messed with my Head

Tim Lambesis: A Fan's Struggle to Understand

Why I Already Dislike Planet Fitness

You may notice that most of those blogs are somehow related to pro wrestling. Why? Because I spent 10 years as a professional wrestler before retiring in October 2013 due to back injuries. I actually wasn't too bad.

A bit about me? Well, obviously I love to write. It's not a paying gig yet, but I'm certainly trying to make that happen.

I'm a happily married man, and my wife is smokin' hot.

I have a huge, manly beard.

God comes first in my life above all else. I'm a leader at my church, as well as the head of our media department.

I've been a metalhead pretty much my entire life.

I'm also a die hard fan of The Simpsons.

Other miscellaneous fact.

Listen up fellow DTOIDers. First off, this is not gaming related, I'm simply coming to the community I love asking for some help. For anyone that doesn't know, I'm a professional wrestler, and I have been for almost 9 years. A while back I attended a "Gut Check Seminar" for TNA Wrestling, the second biggest wrestling company in the United States. Right now, TNA is running a contest called the "Gut Check Challenge" where they will be giving a past seminar attendee the opportunity to wrestle on their weekly "Impact" television show on SpikeTV.



I'm reaching out to you guys to help get me the votes I need to move on to the next round. It's done on a bracket by bracket basis.

http://www.impactwrestling.com/news/item/4021-TNA-IMPACT-WRESTLING-Launches-The-GUT-CHECK-CHALLENGE-Voting-Begins-Monday

I'm down in Bracket 13. First round voting ends on March 11th. If you guys could take ten seconds to check that link out, scroll down a bit, and vote for me, you have no idea how grateful I would be.

As proof that I'm a legitimate wrestler, here's a match I had with one of TNA's best wrestlers, Abyss.



Please spread the word, guys. You have no idea what this would mean to me.

Thanks,
Dustin
