Marc Mero is a retired American amateur boxer and pro-wrestler, who is currently a motivational speaker. Gifted with natural athleticism, he was a highly successful amateur boxer in the 1980s. However, he could not translate all that talent into a professional boxing career. He became a professional wrestler, and enjoyed much fan following working for different wrestling promotions. At WCW, he made his name as Johnny B. Badd, where he would often come out with his iconic confetti gun, the ‘Badd Blaster’ and entertain audiences with his 'Tutti Frutti’ finishing move. At the WWF (now the World Wrestling Entertainment), he was the ‘Wild Man’ and later ‘Marvelous’ Mark Mero - The Intercontinental Champion. He was a well-liked individual among his wrestling co-workers. Following the loss of many of his friends and loved ones in a short span of time, he turned all his attention to motivational speaking. He uses all the little ‘hills and valleys’ from his life and career as examples to motivate kids during his packed-out lectures in schools around Florida on the positives of living life without grudges, and the negatives of drug use and bullying in school surroundings.
