Former WWE Superstar Mark Jindrak, who is now known as Marco Corleone, has published a new column at PWMania.com. Jindrak goes in depth and spotlights international wrestler Rocky Romero, looking back at his career, how he got his break in wrestling, working with X-Pac and much more. Jindrak also includes photos and videos of Romero in action.
Here is an excerpt from his article:
“As most of you might know, I began my career in the WCW around the year 2000. After the WCW fell, I was fortunate enough to continue my career in the WWE up until 2005. After the WWE released me, I furthered my career in Mexico for CMLL in 2006 until this very day in 2014!! Before my time in the WWE came to an end, I didn’t keep up much with what was going on in foreign lands in terms of wrestling. To my awe, it was amazing to venture out in different companies abroad and see such amazing talent. So to start this new year, I want to do a talent spotlight on someone that hasn’t been in the WWE or TNA.
However if you follow the wrestling of New Japan you will be more than familiar with this man. I’m talking about 31 year old foreign journeyman Rocky Romero. His list of accomplishments are striking and his ability shows us that WWE and TNA superstars are not the only talent occupying this great earth. So enjoy and please check out the videos of his action you will find at the end of this article. It will reinforce all the accolades I will talk about regarding Romero.”
“Rocky Romero started his career in 1997 at the young age of 15. Standing only 5’7″ and weighing 155 lbs, Rocky paid his dues on the indy circuit around Southern California under the tutorial of Kevin Quinn. A quick learner, every year he came one step closer to his dream of being a top performer. Always thirsting for more opportunities, Romero knew he had to continually mold his craft to make up for his lack in physical size. Under additional training from Jesse Hernandez in the late 90’s into the new millennium, he was prime to breakout. Mixing an aerial attack with a great ground game, his style set him apart. However his break didn’t happen on our American soil.”
