Former WWE superstar and current professional wrestler Zach Gowen joined us on the Wrestling Mayhem Show to share some of his amazing story!
Gowen, who lost his leg at a young age from cancer, fought his way to become a major star in the WWE.
During our conversation, Gowen discussed his life post WWE; how he lost his identity and went down a dark path and how he found his way back, got clean and found meaning in life.
Gowen also talked about a possible new era for professional wrestlers; as some are now bucking the trend and beating some of the addictions that plagued and eventually killed many before them.
Viewers of the show then asked Gowen questions like: what his favorite match was and who his favorite opponents were.
These questions lead to Gowen discussing the viciousness of professional wrestling when he started, to what it is now.
Gowen then talked about his interesting relationship with fellow professional wrestler Gregory Iron. Iron, a professional wrestler with cerebral palsy; used Gowen as inspiration to become a professional wrestler and clean up his own life.

Eamon and Mike Sorg then discussed some of the independent shows coming up around WrestleMania. Like:
The annual pre-Wrestlemania ROH show.
The “Meet Me There” movie premier starring Dustin Rhodes and several independent wrestling stars!
A wrestling fan since he was a wee little lad. Sorg fondly remembers the big blue cage that Hogan and Orndorf jumped to the floor off of at the same time fondly. Founding the Wrestling Mayhem Show in 2006, he spreads his love of the "sport" of wrestling to all.
