Local pro wrestling hopeful would appreciate your support

Tuesday, February 05, 2013   by: Staff has received the following e-mail from a loyal reader and wrestling fan:


To whom it may concern,

I have a great story for you to follow.

My good friend Jim Fiore that lives here in the Sault is trying to make his dream a reality and has the opportunity to do so.

His dream is to finally become a professional wrestler.

His hard work and dedication to the sport has finally lead him to the cross road of making that happen.

He is currently running in a voting bracket on the Impact Wrestling website called the Gut Check Challenge.

Unfortunately, there is not much publicity for this event here in the city and he is very far behind with the votes.

He has just over 200 votes as of today and I feel that if it was out there for the public to see he just may have a chance to make this dream a reality.

He has to make it to the top three in his bracket to advance and then fate is in his own hands to do what he does best it's just helping him get to that point.

I am going to be making some pictures and will  be posting a timeline on Facebook for him so that he may get more votes as well.

The voting ends February 15, 2013, and I thought I would write in to see if you could help out.

Thank you so much for your time,

- Tasha Zore

You guys are idiots! I work with Jim and he happens to be a great guy. At least he has interests outside of work and is making them happen.

Matthew Ferranti in bracket 13 is another local wrestler.

Why not help out a local kid. Oddly enough, I just voted 3 times in a row and saw his number go up by one each time. Obviously no limit to the number of times you can vote, so why not spend some time this week voting as many times as possible. He's over 900 now, but far from the top.

He is in group on the group # 14 to vote for him, then choose his name. You can vote as many times as you choose.

I'd like to see you guys run your mouths to his face, or go spar/train with him. Sure it's fake but it still hurts!! Keep chasing your dream DD

How many of you have had a dream of making it on national television? Furthermore, how many of you have put as much time as this guy has into his craft? Give the guy a break man. Lets show our support as a community and help this mans dream become a reality!

I voted. He's bracket 14, towards the bottom of the bracket.

Sorry folks, i didn't read the article carefully. I guess Jim needs way more than 200 votes.
