Pro Wrestler Brian Anthony Talks Growing Up in Bethel + Connecticut Cancer Foundation
He attended Bethel High School and dreamed of becoming a Professional Wrestler since he was a kid. Now entering his 13th year with Northeast Wrestling, he’s done it all, including holding the N.E.W. Championship belt.
For Brian Anthony, it didn’t come easy. When he first broke into the professional ranks, most of the wrestlers where massive. At 5-foot-11 and 200 pounds, many considered him too small to compete in the square circle. That never stopped him, though, and once he got his break and joined Northeast Wrestling, things really started happening.
Not only did he become the N.E.W. Champion, but since he’s one of their in-demand performers, he gets to wrestle some of the biggest names in the business. For Brian, that means going head to head with some of his childhood idols.
Sidelined due to injury over the last few month, he made his comeback Friday night in Danbury. One of the main reasons he wanted to get back in the ring was because the evening was also a fundraiser for the Connecticut Cancer Foundation, a cause that’s very close to his heart.
Before the big match at the Danbury PAL Building, he stopped by our KICKS studio and we put him right to the test — a special 2-out-of-3-falls version of the “Price Game” with Suzy. Watch now, you won’t believe what happens:
