He's not pro-choice. He's not pro-life. He's just pro wrestling.
At age eleven, Ted Schuman witnessed one of the most inhumane crimes of the twentieth century: Baron Von Murder lost the heavyweight wrestling championship. Ted would witness many more injustices throughout his life, but none hurt as deeply as the Baron's loss. He had a moral obligation. He vowed to right the wrong.
For six years Ted endured broken bones, barbed wire, lobster races, piranhas, and golf balls on his way to the top. Under the tutelage of his childhood hero Baron Von Murder, Ted became "Senator" Phil Schumacher, who was up until recently one of the top superstars of the professional wrestling business. In doing so, he has not only offended thousands of people with his controversial "evil politician" persona, but he's managed to hide from his personal demons as well. Now, in the twilight of his career, Senator Schumacher shares two lives with wrestling fans: the one he led, and the one he was afraid to.
