"How it is, How it was & How is ought a be!"
Born in CA. Started sports at a VERY young age, amatuer wrestling at the age of 10 then continued throughout High School. Went on to play Pro Baseball between HS & College, where I played starting center for Whittier College Poets Football team, where I seriously injured my knee that took me out of the Professional Baseball scouts book! Fast forward a year, when my older brother Ken talked me into the Professional Wrestling Ring. I traveled the World on the Wrestling dollar, when the Territories were still around. I spent 32 tours in Japan, wrestled in Isreal, Australia, Canada, Mexico, Puerto Rico (which I will NEVER return to) and ALL across the United States. This BUSINESS of Professional Wrestling has been good to me for over 40 years, but has been very Rough on my body! I have continued to raise and train Thoroughbred Race Horses on my families ranch in Montague County, TX, help young athletes train for the sports they love and give back to the business / sport that I have loved for so long! I am here for anyone that is interested in doing what is RIGHT in this business and not treat it like a mockery..... Cowboy Johnny Mantell www.johnnymantell.com
