Recently the world lost my favorite wrestler of all-time, Macho Man Randy Savage. The Macho Man happened to be Jewish. But he never embraced his Judaism in the ring. A few have. Barry Horowitz was the classic stereotypical Jew who had a solid career in the WWE(F). Goldberg never denied his Judaism. And of course former NWA champion Colt Cabana/Scotty Goldman has played on his Judaism as he rises the ranks of the Indy circuit, Ring of Honor, and even while he was in the WWE. But now there is a new wrestler using his Jewish roots to develop. His name is Ethan Levin. He is in Florida Championship Wrestling, which is the WWE’s developmental facility. Here is what they write about him.

“Self-made millionaire, Diamond wholesaler, entrepreneur, Ethan Levin is a natural born Israeli icon who possess tremendous leadership and interpersonal communication skills. Levin’s charisma, phenomenal physical abilities and remarkable political power are few of the qualities he owns. These qualities helped him to become the first male wrestler to get a developmental contract directly from beginner’s class.

Ethan Levin came to the FCW from the Diamond Bursa (Israel Diamond stock exchange). From a young age, growing without a father, Levin had to pull his strengths and helped his mother to raise his sister and himself. Do not let Levin’s gentleman elegant look deceive you. Levin spent years in studying different MMA, from Krav Maga to Muay Thai. It is better not to be on his black list. Throughout his life, Levin conquered, by force or by Money, everyone who stepped in his way. “If I cannot beat you, I will buy you” (Levin’s words of wisdom). These words of wisdom brought Levine to leave the VIP Diamond Club and follow his childhood dream of becoming a WWE Superstar.

‘In this country, you gotta make the money first. Then when you get the money, you get the power. Then when you get the power, then you get Ethan Levin.’”

We do not know much about Ethan Levin quite yet but we are excited for his success and hope to see him in the WWE soon. B’Hatzlacha.

And Let Us Say…Amen.
