Recently, I had the good fortune of speaking with Valerie Wyndham, better known to millions of wrestling fans as Total Nonstop Action (TNA) Wrestling “Knockout” So Cal Val.
In the ring, she portrays a spoiled rotten, pampered, rich girl who cheats to win at all costs. Over the phone, she was humble, a joy to speak with, and cried no less than two times – proving once again what I believe is true, and not said enough: Professional Wrestlers are among the nicest people you will ever want to speak to. With Val’s permission, and with credit to her, TNA Wrestling, Spiffbox.com and SoCalVal.org, I present to you her unedited, gut reaction to my work.
Not because I’m in need of an ego boost, but because it touched her and we agreed the kids need your help, and your dollars. If every one of Val’s Twitter followers (http://www.twitter.com/socalvalerie) gave ONE DOLLAR – we would have $13,000 and send another 16 kids with muscular dystrophy to camp.
