One of the larger stories that came out of the 2018 Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast, Australia was the one of Kevin Wallen. The president of the Jamaica Wrestling Federation, Wallen competed at 86kg in freestyle and won his opening match 11-10 over a wrestler from the Bahamas.

At 48 years old.

On Episode 61 of the World Wrestling Resource, we'll catch up with Wallen, who was raised on the island nation of nearly 3 million people before moving to Canada and discovering wrestling. It was a means to keep him out of trouble and give him a pathway to a post-secondary education. What is Wallen doing to grow wrestling in his homeland, and what in the world possesses a 48-year-old man to go out and scrap with wrestlers, in some cases, 20 years younger? We'll find out in this amazing episode of the World Wrestling Resource Podcast.
