Fred Rosser: Vision, success, and fight.
Fred Rosser gave us an amazing interview about his lifestyle of “constant grind, hustle, and struggle”. Get ready to be inspired by MrNoDaysOff’s life vision, success, discipline and his fight to end the hate and stigma that surrounds those who come out as LGBTQ “or anyone that gets bullied into silence”.
When did you know/feel for the first time what you wanted to do in life?
“LOL! I’ve been a life-long wrestling fan since I came out of my Mom’s womb in 1983. I was fascinated by the larger than life characters, the athleticism, and the lavish costumes the superstars would wear to the ring”.
Did you ever think, back in Union High School, that you would one day become a WWE Professional Wrestler?
“Absolutely! The last sentence in my High School yearbook was “WWF here I come!” I then pursued the now WWE with laser-like focus from 2002-2009 and finally out of 75 guys and girls from all over the world, I earned my contract with WWE May 4th 2009. My journey into WWE wasn’t an easy one. I was told NO by the company over 30 times until I got that one YES and my life changed forever. I always say, “Without commitment you’ll never start, but most importantly, without consistency you’ll never finish.”
Talent vs. Persistence, which counts more?
“Balance is key for me so, if you sprinkle in a little talent and a dash of persistence then you get me Mr. Nodaysoff! The nickname Mr. Nodaysoff is what best describes me as a person which is a lifestyle of constant grind, hustle, and struggle. My fight is much bigger than in the ring. My grind is to end the hate and stigma that surrounds those who come out as LGBTQ, or anyone that gets bullied into silence”.
“I was told NO by the company over 30 times until I got that one YES and my life changed forever”.
How much time do you dedicate to your body?
“I always say health is wealth and that’s something that no one can take away from me. My workouts are very simple and I don’t try and reinvent the wheel. I like to call my workouts The Power Hour because there are no excuses for us NOT to devote one hour to our health in a 24 hour period. During the power hour, I always try to use the best methods of working out that are going to provide the greatest, most reliable results, in the least amount of time”.
What’s the importance of using top-quality products for you?
“In my profession, I am truly inundated with people and companies asking me to use their product or stand behind it and although the quality of the product is of utmost importance, the quality of the people and the vision of the company is of equal importance to me”.
How’s your CBD experience so far?
“CBD has been a staple in my life for many years now. I’m always looking forward to building great things and educating the masses on how CBD has benefited me throughout my years in wrestling and beyond whether it was reducing inflammation, helping me sleep better, or combating symptoms of a concussion from the ring. Through all of my social media platforms, I’m most importantly always looking forward to delivering new innovations that have meaningful health benefits for not only myself but all families as well”.
“Being the first openly gay WWE Superstar, I’ve been able to pave the way for wrestling fans and athletes all over the world to go after their dreams never allow the opinions of others to derail them on their journey to greatness”.
What’s your favorite thing about Hola CBD?
“I love being involved and collaborating with companies such as Hola, that places such a high value on quality, research, and education, that is absolutely essential.
Health isn’t about taking a supplement although Hola’s is an awesome one.
I’m about empowering individuals to make positive, healthy changes in their lives from all angles: internally, personally, and professionally if I can”.
What’s your final advice for those who look up to you and would like to become professional wrestlers one day?
“First and foremost, wrestling isn’t easy but like I mentioned earlier consistency is key. If you decide to get involved in wrestling, you’re going to be flooded with all types of good and bad advice. You have to be mindful enough to distinguish the two. My #1 advice tip to anyone pursuing wrestling as a hobby or career is…Take Care of That Body!!! Even though professionally wrestling is scripted, entertainment injuries do come with the territory.
Lastly, being the first openly gay WWE Superstar, I’ve been able to pave the way for wrestling fans and athletes all over the world to go after their dreams never allow the opinions of others to derail them on their journey to greatness.
Ever since coming out, I use my confidence to raise the voices of those who still hide in uncertainty and fear and my goal has always been to inspire others to be comfortable in their own skin.
The Blockthehate movement is definitely worth championing because the point of this movement is to show that we all aren’t as different from each other as we think. We all get bullied for one reason or another but in order to be strong and successful, you must #BLOCKTHEHATE!
