Help a DTOIDer Live His Dream!

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.

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.

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.
