A former American football player (his real name is Tom Pestock and he played for Division II powerhouse Northwest Missouri State University, as well as a couple training camp stints with NFL squads in Indianapolis & Arizona), the Lone Wolf dropped roughly fifty pounds when he transitioned to pro wrestling for his last career and, well, the skin around his naval didn’t get the memo.
