Former ECW champion Justin Credible published a new column at www.PWMania.com, addressing the Miami Dolphins situation and the pro wrestling locker room.
Credible wrestled as Aldo Montoya, the Portuguese Man O’ War, during his early days of his wrestling career in the WWF, now WWE. He wrestled in the WWF from 1993-97.
Here is an excerpt from his column:
“Switching gears, I want to talk about the Richie Incognito, Jonathan Martin situation. I want to relate this to what young men and women in pro wrestling go through in big league locker rooms. I remember going into a WWF locker room at age 19. I was barely an adult in a world of alpha males. I was hazed terribly. I had my eyebrows shaved, my gear destroyed and even tied to a pole, but you know what? I learned respect. I learned to honor this business and those who came before me.
“I was hazed by Curt Hennig, Davey Boy Smith and even JBL, but they always let me know, in their own way, hang in there kid. I manned up the best I could and earned my stripes in any locker room anywhere in the world. It sounds crazy, but we police ourselves in wrestling.
“I’m not advocating hate or malicious intent, but I really think in the wrestling business, respect is lacking. I always said, ‘When is it going to be my turn?’ Well, it’s my turn as a veteran to say we need to respect our business and treat it that way, because frankly indie wrestling is all many of us will ever have. Respect it.”
