Kevin always followed his fans, I would tweet him and tell him how much of a fan I was. He followed me and messaged “Thanks for support, god bless.” This time, Kevin messaged and said “Hey bro, what’s wrong?”. I sent him a message explaining I couldn’t take life much and this was the end. Without a second glance, he messaged “what’s your phone number and let me talk some sense into you”. I couldn’t seriously believe that Kevin wanted to help me that much. I sent my message and about 2 minutes later I get a private number calling me.
“Kevin Randleman?” Me asking with tears down my eyes. “Hello? Marcus? Right?” Kevin said in a panic
Hearing that made me throw the already tied rope knot and start crying even more, Kevin started to talk me out of the bad situation I was in. He told me about how he understood how I was feeling, he sharing some of his stories about his rough childhood. I told him about my issues with addiction to porn and sexting. I explained about what happened with me and ex gf.
He said, “Mistakes happen, it’s how you grow and learn from that mistake.
I told him how about him, Dan Henderson and Kurt Angle were the reasons I got into wrestling and Greco-Roman style. He told me about how his kids and wife Elizabeth were the Light of his life and made name three things I’m thankful for: “Family, Friends, and Health”
Kevin stayed on the phone with me for a good 35-40 minutes before I told him I wasn’t going threw it anymore. He then left me with this “Don’t ever think that your not worthy of this life because we only have one.”
What I did was next was deleting all of my social media and still to this day I don’t have any besides Reddit. I went to counseling for my issues, and became a changed man.
I never got a chance to meet Kevin but damnit I will always wake up and look to the sky with a monster roar and thank him everyday for saving my life. I’m posting this because if anyone is having issues, please there is someone that does care, even when we are at our lowest. If somebody needs anybody to talk to, please message me.
