Spotlight On: Independent Wrestler ‘The Living Proof’ Jastin Taylor

8. Who are your mentors? Who has influenced your career the most?

The people who have influenced me the most at the beginning was Jack Logan (TOP OF TEXAS) and Fred Urban III (OSW).  Both of these men were the first two to see potential in me and I wouldn’t have gotten those matches with legends if they hadn’t first given me a chance.  In the past few years, Bob Evans (Ring of Honor) has really been a life-
saver.  His motivational videos and seminar camps lit a fire in me when I was stagnant, and his influence and lessons have truly revitalized my wrestling career up until this point.  I can’t thank these people enough for what they have done.

9. What are your long-term goals for your career, where do you see yourself in 10 years?

In ten years, I believe that I will have traveled the world performing and I will either be celebrating my work in the major wrestling companies or training the next generation on how to be better performers.  I also am an aspiring screen writer, so by that time I fully expect to see my some of my stories told on the big screen!  At the end of the day, one thing is for sure, I will be “Living Proof” that life is simply what you make of it.

10. What advice would you give to up and comers trying to break into the wrestling business?

Always seek to do right by the business, go where the proper training is.  Be evaluated by those who have had success and will tell you the truth.  Take chances to get where you want to go.  And never, ever, ever, EVER give up on yourself and your dream.  The only people who can see the future are those that create it.
