Nicolaus Martin has always loved wrestling. Everyone called him Nicky. As a child, he and his brothers would wrestle around as they watched the WWF, WCW and NWA. No matter how poor their lives were wrestling would make it all better, even if it was for an hour. Nicky and his family were very poor. Every winter there was at least a month with no electricity at their home. Nicky was bullied starting at the age of thirteen. The more he got picked on the tougher he got. Nicky and his buddies had such an imagination. They made up their own wrestling in a little town in Illinois. They made their championship belts out of cardboard and aluminum foil. By age seventeen, his toughness got him noticed by a small wrestling organization. Before he knew it, he was wrestling in Japan for $50 a night. Now this was not entertainment. This stuff was real. Nicky broke his nose several times and was on the injured list more than not. He got to the place, that he would not let on that he was in pain. Nicky fought for a Championship 3 times and lost all three times. Two of those times were after he got sprayed in the eyes with a green mist by the Champion. Now Nicky was back in the States broke and broken. He heads back to the gym to see if he can resurrect those dreams of being in the big time on National Television and pay per view as a Professional Wrestler.
