The Most Hated Man in Mexico
He’s been featured on CNN, FOX News and in Associated Press and Reuters newspaper articles around the world, including the Washington Post and Canada’s most widely read newspaper, the Toronto Star.
He’s appeared on a plethora of podcasts hosted by everyone from Vince Russo to Chris Jericho and has wrestled in the United States, Europe, Japan and Mexico (where he has worked for the nation’s largest and most well-known lucha libre wrestling promotions CMLL and, currently, AAA).
On Wednesday, September 15, 2001 at 1PM, “the most hated man in Mexico”, Sam Adonis, will be in Las Vegas, Nevada conducting a seminar in Salon D as part of the Cauliflower Alley Club’s 55th reunion at the Gold Coast Hotel and Casino.
Adonis, the younger brother of WWE star Corey Graves, comes to the CAC with a story to tell. Born in Pittsburgh, PA with a promoter father and, later, a WWE star brother, Adonis took the wrestling world and the news media by storm following the US Presidential win of Donald Trump in 2016.
It was upon Trump’s victory that Adonis decided that, although he was 6-foot-4 and 200-plus pounds, he needed something a bit more. Something to set him apart from all of the other wrestlers out there.
“When he won, I don’t think I waited a day. I thought, I’m getting a flag with his face on it. There are 200 other wrestlers out there—you’ve gotta stand out,” Adonis told GQ magazine.
On September 15, CAC attendees can learn a lot from this young man. Up-and-comers will learn about “getting heat”, what it takes to get booked internationally, and how to go about it as well as tips and ideas on how to set yourself apart from other wrestlers out there. Grizzled vets can learn and smile at the thought of a young man who gets, respects and appreciates the old school traditions of our sport and is keeping the tradition alive, internationally.
The Cauliflower Alley Club is both privileged and proud to present Sam Adonis: The Most Hated Man in Mexico as part of our 55th Reunion Learning Series.
