Coach’s Wrestling Class – A Short Film

I grew up watching wrestling. The loud promos of “Stone Cold” Steve Austin and Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson were always echoing out of my living room. Three weeks into high school I was labeled “the wrestling kid.” Maybe it was because I talked about it all the time… Or maybe it was because I wore a different wrestling shirt to school everyday, consistently, for three weeks!? We may never know the answer.

If you’re reading this… You probably know how madly and deeply in love, I am with hip-hop. I started writing songs in high school. I would lay awake at night and think about how one day I’d be famous (hey, it can still happen… Right!?) and do a wrestling themed music video. I could see it in my head – I’d invite all my favorite wrestlers to be a part of it.

The universe can be really slick at times. Because a variation of that actually happened (though I’m still working on the famous part – It can still happen RIGHT?!?). And it all began with my dear friend Sonjay Dutt.
