Dallas first broke into the world of professional wrestling as a manager but he eventually stepped into the ring himself. And even though he began his professional wrestling career at the age of 35 he quickly reached superstar status. Injuries threatened to derail his career, but Dallas overcame his physical challenges, and even developed his own spin on traditional yoga which became a total fitness solution, called DDPYoga. It is his work with DDPYoga that has allowed him to continue to inspire and help people, ranging from professional football players, professional and amateur wrestlers, MMA fighters, and regular individuals. His efforts have helped earn him these prestigious honors, the 2015 Jason Sanderson Humanitarian Award, as well as a 2015 men’s wrestling award.
