A new star will make his in-ring debut in 2019.
2019 will see the professional wrestling debut of the original Green Power Ranger who was played by Jason David Frank. The 'Laredo Wrestling Alliance' which is a promotion based in Laredo, Texas held their 'Let's Say Goodbye' show on Saturday night. Ringside for the main event of the aforementioned show was Jason David Frank and he got to watch the 'LWA United Pure' Champion Ricky Swayze go one-on-one with Brysin Scott.
Scott was not happy about Jason David Frank being ringside and decided to call the actor out which led to the two getting into a scuffle and eventually being separated by security. Once they were separated David Frank got into the ring and announced that he will be returning to 'Laredo Wrestling Alliance' as an in-ring performer to face Brysin Scott. David Frank was interviewed by 'LMTonline' after the show and shared that he's always been interested in stepping into the squared circle. David Frank does have experience in MMA as he has a 5-0 fight record with four amateur wins and one win on the professional level. His last bout was in August of 2010 at the 'Texas Cage Fighting - Puro Combate 1' show where he submitted Jose Roberto Vasquez in 46 seconds.
"I’ve always been interested in stepping into a wrestling ring," David Frank said. "I don’t do this stuff. I do MMA. Just to learn this stuff is cool. I went to WWE, but just to see this passion in these fighters, everyone is hungry and everyone wants to be the best they can. I like that."
'LWA' owner Rey Chavarria told the outlet that the house on Saturday night was the biggest crowd that the promotion has ever drawn and added that the fans in attendance were all behind the original Green Power Ranger. Chavarria said that Laredo, Texas will now be known as the place where Jason David Frank made his professional wrestling debut.
"If that’s not a big deal, what else is there to say about wrestling in Laredo?" Chavarria said. "This is the place to be. The Green Ranger is wrestling for the first time in LWA. Just listen to that over again. Laredo isn’t known for that. Now it’s going to be known for the home of LWA and where Jason David Frank made his wrestling debut."
Jason David Frank also credited CM Punk and RAW Women's Champion Ronda Rousey for bringing his eyes over to the wrestling business and to read the full article on this topic, click here.
