The month of January continues to roll on for The RCWR Show as we welcome former pro football player turned pro wrestler Ricky Ortiz next week!

Before becoming a pro wrestler, Ricky Ortiz spent time playing football in the NFL, AFL, CFL and even in Vince McMahon’s XFL. Ricky Ortiz would soon turn his attention to pro wrestling starting off in Ohio Valley Wrestling before moving on to the WWE were his greatest fame being part of the new ECW brand and also appearing on Smackdown.

Ricky joins Lee Sanders to discuss his latest projects and upcoming appearances that includes his return to the Extreme Rising promotion in February for their next IPPV after having a successful debut in December with a victory over Homicide.

“It’s an honor to be able to chat with Ricky Ortiz”, Lee Sanders says of Ricky’s upcoming appearance. I was a big fan of his work from WWE and was heart-broken when he and WWE parted ways. He’s been doing very well for himself since then having wrestled in various promotions. Even loaning his talent to the Extreme Rising promotion which is something we’re trying to cover monthly for our listeners. No doubt we’re talking all things wrestling on that episode”!
