Ron "The Truth" Killings Facts

Better known as Ron “The Truth” Killings, the American pro wrestler was born on January 19, 1972. He is also known as a rapper that had a thing for break-dancing.

He grew up in Charlotte, North Carolina struggling financially because of the fact that his parents were underpaid and sometimes not even being employed. This situation motivated Ron to make something of his life and used his energy in track running and football. Offers of scholarships were given to him but because of his affinity to music; he turned them down and even left school when he was 16 years old. Meeting rappers like 2Pac and Easy-E was a great factor in his decision to become a musician. This carrier needed money – a lot in fact – so he turned to drug dealing as an income for three years; this gave him enough capital to pay a recording studio for his debut album. Unfortunately his source of cash led him to 13 months in jail but on a bigger picture helped him realize he needed a normal job.

After going to some wrestling matches, he realized that his physical abilities can give him the legitimate job he needed and this kind of life incited him, too. He debuted in NWA Wild side as K-Krush and he made a statement there being awarded not later with the newly-created NWA Wild side Television Championship. He continued his carrier with an aggressive manner that brought him the nickname of Killings; this also helped him along with ambition to win titles and recognition of his value.

Killings teamed up with James Storm to beat Frank Wycheck and Jerry Lynn at TNA Slammiversary 2007, pointing out that now he is a heel. Later this year he resigned from TNA but was not able to go free because they wouldn’t let him go. The latest news about Ron Killings is that he didn’t show up at the New Japan event, a world cross promoting TNA/NJPW. It seems that this is the last drop for the company and the wrestler could get his wish and be apart from TNA. However until an official statement will be made, the wrestler is still stuck with them, whether he likes it or not.
