It never ends. I love keeping busy, positive and moving forward on a daily basis says, Ric. Living in Sherman Oaks Ca is fine but I also like to take breaks from the daily routine and come to Venice for a workout and lunch at the Firehouse. I always meet new fans and set up interviews as well. Venice will always be my roots and my home.
Still training 6 days a week and staying good shape even though have suffered many wrestling injuries. It’s the only way to live and train. I know no other way. Ric received the Joe Gold Lifetime Achievement Award in Las Vegas in 2012 and last year the Orange County Legends in Wrestling and Sports Achievement award.
