Hulk Hogan's Micro Championship Wrestling
Johnny "Attitude" Greene
Johnny is an all-or-nothing kind of guy. He slept in his car through Wrestling School, sacrificed his marriage and burned bridges with employers – all in the pursuit of his dream to become the CEO of MCW. As if all the sacrifices weren't enough, he maxed out credit cards purchasing touring trailers, developing merchandise, buying training equipment, hiring talent and funding their travel. With no back-up plan and everything at stake, Johnny continues to invest everything into his wrestling business, believing confidence and the power of positive thinking will be enough to make him succeed.
Born in the Bronx and raised in Long Island by a modest Catholic family, Johnny has always been the black sheep of this family. His mother was a stay-at-home mom, his father worked as a New York City Transit operator, his sister went on to become the president of a bank and his brother has a wife, family and successful career in the air-conditioning industry. But Johnny chose a different path. After graduating high school, Johnny followed his entrepreneurial spirit, taking jobs like fish mongering at local open-air markets, converting an old truck into a mobile coffee shop and eventually falling upon the idea that he could make money with just his body.
Johnny opened a gym and got a second job as a dancer. Making his way to becoming a local celebrity as the host of a 1990 TV show Beach Control, Johnny discovered a new love that he still chases today – being in front of the camera. Johnny met his childhood hero, Hulk Hogan, on the set of Beach Control and found yet another way to make money off his body: wrestling. After the TV show wrapped, Johnny invested everything he had to attend the prestigious Power Plant wrestling school in Atlanta.
Since becoming a wrestler in 1994, Johnny has survived four major elbow injuries, lived off instant noodles and skated through debt to support his far-reaching goal of developing the MCW brand. Johnny says his only source of income is the MCW, and everything he makes gets re-invested back into the business. If his business fails, he has nothing on which to fall back.
