The big man took a chance and it paid off.
Major League Wrestling announced last summer that they would once again be promoting wrestling events after a thirteen-year absence of doing so. The promotion is piloted by former WWE creative writer Court Bauer and they have struck a TV deal with 'beIN Sports' in the United States for their weekly television show entitled 'MLW: Fusion' which airs on Fridays.
The promotion crowned a new MLW World Heavyweight Champion for the first-time in over a decade last month. That very tournament was filled with some of the top talent from around the pro wrestling world and there are talents who are contracted to the promotion who are considered by viewers and fans to be some of the more talented in-ring performers in ths sport. MLW will be hosting a show in New York for the first-time in nearly 13-years inside of the 'Melrose Ballroom' in July and one of the talents who will be appearing on that show is the 6'2, 420-pound big man Barrington Hughes.
SportsKeeda had the opportunity to interview the flamboyant Hughes and he shared his story about how he took a chance on himself to get in contact with Major League Wrestling about competing for the promotion.
"I've been plying my trade on the Florida indies for almost seven years and I remember watching MLW in my high school years. Last year, I saw that they were looking for talent and I thought to myself, 'The worst they could say is no.' So I sent over my information and didn't get an immediate response." He continued, "A couple of weeks later, management contacted me and offered me an opportunity to join the roster. I said yes and never looked back."
Barrington Hughes also discussed his sense of fashion, his training regimes, and more. To read the full interview, click here.
