    From New Orleans, the real home of Mid South Wrestling, thank you for 30years of great matches. Whenever the book is released, I’ll be one of many people here to buy it. This is the reason why God has blessed you with more health so you can tell your story. If the book is anything like the Grappler’s is, it will not be put down easily. Be blessed, be healthy,and be well.

    Never watched wrestling except for maybe as side bar walking in a room; however I just read your story that friend of mine posted on Facebook. After reading story on line decided to purchase book. Didnt like seeing the guy back out of the 4 chairs and had a little laugh hearing about the rattle snake. Look forward to reading your book.

    God Bless,

    I am a die hard wrestling fan. I have saved magazines over my 40 + years of watching professional wrestling. Born and raised in Tunica MS., I am a big fan of Kamala and Jerry the King Lawler! I wish you the best, and like Koko B. Ware said, it is not to late to change your life and let God in, I did. I no what you went through growing up.
    Take care,…long time fan…

    I don’t know if Kamala will read this or not. I hope he does. So if he does get to read this here we go:
    Dear Kamala,
    First off I want to thank you for scaring me as a child. I mean I was terrified to the point of nightmares and wetting my bed. As I got older I laugh that I was that sacred. As I myself really got into wrestling, about one to two hundred spectators, I appreciated all the hard work you put into your character. Nowadays at the ripe old age of thirty, I have been forced to retire from in ring work do to a genetic disease. However I am attempting to start my own independent wrestling company, so that leads me to two questions. My first question is, how retired are you, are you willing to do backstage work? And my next question, what advice can you offer to me for starting up my company?

    Kamala, great book. I enjoy biographies on the old territory system. Especially hearing about wrestlers of the past that are probably forgotten or not talked about in most autobiographies, like ‘ol “whack-o” Steve Lombardi. Good job. Hope we get a sequel in the future.

  • Shannon Williams

    Your story was truly inspiring. I remember growing up watching you throw other wrestlers around like ragdolls. Lol those were the good ol days. I just want to say continue to stay strong my brother and may God bless you and your family KAMALA. Our Heavenly Father will continue to restore your health.
