BAINBRIDGE, GA (WALB) - A masked monster, a cowboy boots wearing grandpa, and an Italian hearthrob showed up at the Hutto Middle School gym in Bainbridge for a beating. Kids and families root for a fight to help the Laymen Brotherhood Outreach program keep young men out of gangs, violence, and drugs.
"I preach in the street, the prisons, and the ghettos and I'm trying to help the young men change their lives," said Laymen Founder Reverend Adren Bivins.
Bivins, also known as the the Black Assassin in his pro wrestling days, uses beat downs to help at-risk youth who may not have father figures.
"I'm trying to be their dad and I'm in the courtroom and the prison with them and I'm trying to change their lives," Bivins noted.
The smackdowns, body slams, and power slams attract rowdy crowds which raise money for Bivins to provide his young men with school clothes, college tuition, and job corps training.
"We're based on Godly teaching and Godly work and we're doing the best we can to help our young men," Bivins added.
"Johnny Romano" and his tag team partner "Dab Savage" have been through the pressure Bivin's youth encounter.
"Everybody was a troubled teen at one time so it feels good to help out a good cause," wrestler "Dab Savage" said.
Whether it's a rodeo or monster ball, the wrestlers are here to pound in a message to keep youth on track. The Laymen Brotherhood Second Chance Outreach is a faith based program that's been around for about two years. So far it's brought roughly 150 men off the streets and on the right track.
