Episode 081: e’d Rather Be In Ihe Ring Than Wear It with special guest Frankie “Mr. Top Notch” Estrella Vacation is over! Now I’m back to reviewing Life lafter Divorce podcast week 81. Quite the colorful character this week, none other than Frankie “Top Notch” Estrella. Wow! He gave us such insight into the life of a professional wrestler. I was so unaware of that lifestyle. I do get the whole going to the gym in the middle of the night and it’s just a huge part of your personal hours and the need to work out. Frankie mentioned his Mom’s thoughts on not being with one woman and he found out that she was right. Serious girlfriends did not fit in with your lifestyle. However, married wrestlers doing their threesomes is news to me. The very thought of it never crossed my mind. But hey, I now have a new way to view wrestlers. Frankie certainly had his experience with relationships. They were all somewhat different but he learned a lot about women and himself over the years. He has also grown and got clean. He is now having fun in the comedy world and enjoying a little karaoke. It’s perfect for him. All Frankie needs
Episode 81: He’d Rather Be In The Ring Than Wear It with special guest Frankie Estrella aka Mr Top Notch Leanne and The Boyfriend discuss how jobs/careers really impact our relationships. For instance, in comedy it’s really hard to date someone who’s not a performer. Most people don’t really understand why their partner is hanging out at a bar all night. They don’t perceive that to be real work. It’s the same for many performers. They keep different hours, they’re not sitting behind a desk, it’s a very creative environment. And because it’s not really structured, it’s hard for other people to relate. The same can be said for people with more traditional jobs. If someone works long hours, he/she may be more likely to date someone in the same field because they get it. Meet Frankie “Mr. Top Notch” Estrella. Frankie is an Improviser, Clown Performer, Former World Power Wrestling Heavyweight and Tag Team Champion, and Host of W.T.F.E. Podcast (listen on SoundCloud). Frankie has never been married and he’s not so sure he wants to ever get married. He finds that most people end up divorced or not valuing their vows – so what’s the point? Frankie keeps late hours and works out
