He is in a Texas prison. He has had health problems since being in prison, but that has improved greatly. His plan is to still wrestle when he gets out and also to start a wrestling school. He wants to teach newcomers to the sport of wrestling how to avoid the bad decisions that he made! There was a rumor going around that Awesome had a heart attack in prison and died ! I assure you that is not true. He is doing his time and holding his own and facing his responsibilities for what he has done. If anyone would like to send him letters, please let me know ( Petruscagail@aol.com ) and I will send you Awesome’s address. But I have to know ahead of time ok. Unless you are a reporter or a reverand or something like that and then you would need permission from the warden at his prison. PS He will also have another fight name when he gets out. It will be Texas Kong.
