The Will Power Of Will Hobbs

Athletic Growth and Development

Trained by All Pro Wrestling (APW), Will Hobbs is an eight year veteran whose highly respected athlete among peers and fans. Hobbs’ growth and development as an athlete hasn’t stopped, consistently training and working hard. Where he now often trains with Big Ryck (Former WWE Superstar Ezekiel Jackson). 

Hobbs grew up having faced adversity and tragic situations that has shaped the man he is today.

Growing up and living in one the slummiest neighbourhoods at the time. He tragically lost his brother who was brutally murdered on the doorsteps of the family home. His parents would battle and fall to addiction. 

Hobbs would go on to be raised by his grandparents where they would grow a bond over professional wrestling. He would hear their memories of their fandom and stories of their times attending wrestling events at the historic Cow Palace. 

Hobbs would later get to attend many wrestling events at the Cow Palace. However, WCW Superbrawl VIII in 98, Hobbs sat close enough to reach out and get a high five from Booker T who competed against Rick Martel. A brief moment in time, but one that silitified a kid’s dream.

Early in his career, he would wrestle under the name “Will Roode”. He would soon come to feel tired of and lose some belief in that name. Looking to grow as a performer, he would change things up after a conversation with trainer/mentor Big Ryck who suggested the name “Will Hobbs”. Taking from reality and The Rock’s character from the Fast and Furious franchise. 

Attributed to his great work ethic and determination, Hobbs has gone on to accomplish many accolades throughout his career. Such as, the GRPW Dynamite Division Championship, being a PCW Tag Team Champion, 3x APW Tag Team Champion and 3x APW Worldwide Internet Champion.
