Gabe Dalton, Connor Stampley's Bother (and Brother).  Trends indicate that the Louisiana Wrestling News will publish more Gabe photos than Cody Hill, Connor Stampley, Jake Rando, Trent Mahoney and Gavin Christ combined if he ends up wrestling.  Albeit with the talents his is demonstrating, a gig at Sea World comes to mine, as does the Cirque du Soleil.
