Dalton Castle Recalls His First Job In The Pro Wrestling Business


Former ROH World Champion Dalton Castle was a recent guest on the “Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend” podcast to discuss a variety of professional wrestling related topics, including his first job in pro wrestling. He said,

“I was 16, I used to travel, I wasn’t yet trying to be a pro wrestler, but my friends were all pro wrestlers. It wasn’t Rome, New York, but it was close to it. They didn’t have a referee and they were like, ‘this guy can do it. He’s here.’ They gave me a striped shirt, it was in a school gymnasium. There were maybe 40 to 50 people, spread out, so it was cavernous. I had to ref a hardcore match, it was the middle of the show, three or four on the card. There were these two dudes wailing each other with light tubes and chairs and bleeding everywhere in this empty gymnasium. I hear this blood-curdling scream from the hallway that said, ‘STOP THE MATCH!’ I look over and there is this woman who is the curator of the event who was screaming and bawling, she was crying so hard to stop the match because the name of the show was a charity event for a place called Stop The Violence and no one had told her this match was going to take place. I just shrugged my shoulders and rang the bell.”

Dalton Castle vs. Chris Jericho for the ROH World Championship will be taking place on tonight’s episode of AEW Dynamite.
