19 YEAR OLD WON 35 MILLION POWERBALL, STARTED WRESTLICIOUS in 2008
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Los Angeles, CA-Saturday March 28, 2009
The Executive Producer of the new Jimmy Hart's Wrestlicious TV show creating a huge buzz on the internet,
,19 year old Jonathan Vargas, is excited about the overwhelming response. Vargas, the youngest Powerball winner ever, won 35.3 million in May 2008, and wasted no time pursuing his dream of being involved the wrestling business. Vargasm who lived in Gaston, South Carolina at when he bought the winning Powerball ticket recently moved to Tampa, Florida to be closer to the Wrestlicious production.
"It definitely always been a dream to be in the wrestling business. I grew up watching Jimmy Hart, Greg "The Hammer" Valentine and Nasty Boy Brian Knobbs, and it seems surreal that they are all part of Wrestlicious now.
We have assembled some of the best producers and talent in the business, I know in my heart Wrestlicious
will be a home run"
Vargas will appear in the show as "JV Rich", the laid back and affable Rapper/Owner of Wrestlicious. Regular features will include "JV's CRIB", a look at the goings-on inside JV's mansion frequented by The Wrestlicious Girls.
"I thought he was very nice, and doesn't seem to be affected at all by his good fortune. He was totally respectful to all the ladies on the set. He seemed to me to be involved in Wrestlicious solely because he genuinely loves wrestling and not as a vehicle to meet young women" said Wrestlicious star Lacey Von Erich.
"Mr. Vargas has been a pleasure to work with since he first expressed his interest in women's wrestling to me last summer" added Wrestlicious Senior Producer and GLOW alumni Johnny Cafarella "He's a very smart young man and
surprising business acumen for a guy his age"
