I figure this is OK to post since my full name is right on the sidebar of this page, so here you go. Ever Google yourself? I have, and I’ve noticed that there are some pretty successful Adam Richardses out there:
The heavyweight boxer (“Adam Richards (9-1) outpointed John Dixon of Gautier in a four round heavyweight fight.” Way to go, man!)
The local pro wrestler. Holy crap I’m such a badass! Check this out:
Name: Adam Richards
Nickname: The Chosen One
Faction: The Texas Mafia (w/ Kyle and Michelle Richards)
Hometown: San Antonio, Texas
Entrance: The arena goes dark and the lights begin to flash red as “New Abortion” by Slipknot hits the BlazenTron. Flames explode when the first yell is heard and when the first lyrics are heard, Adam Richards appears on the stage. After staring at the crowd, Adam makes his way to the ring, slides inside and moves to the far right corner of the ring to pose. Adam then jumps down, turns around and waits.
Fighting Style: Brawler
Persona: Adam Richards loves to scare the fans with all the painful moves in his repertoire. He hates the fans and everything they represent.
Signature Moves: – Tornado DDT – Frog Splash – Standing Shooting Star Press
Finishers: – Pure Impact (Swinging Sidewalk Slam) – The Apocalypse (Electric Chair Drop)
Quote: “I live for the thrill of the violent moment!”
Superstar History: Originally from San Antonio, Texas, Adam Richards, who was trying to follow in his brother Kyle’s footsteps, tried to find a job in the wrestling business with no success. Even though Adam was a virtual unknown in the business, the Epic Wrestling Organization gave Adam a chance to compete with their company. It was on November 13, 2004, that Adam Richards worked his first match for the eWo against Devin Washington and Shane Nitro and impressed, even though it was in a losing effort. After a long wait in-between matches, Adam Richards got his first chance at eWo gold in a battle royal on December 22, 2004. The match was for the eWo National Championship. Adam lost the match, yet again impressed the company in a losing effort. On January 5, 2005, Adam Richards would again have a chance for more gold, this time for the eWo Gutz and Glory Championship. However, before the show took place, the company was bought by Kevin Void and has not had a show since. Tired of waiting, Adam decided to try his luck elsewhere and joined the Blazenwing Wrestling Federation to team with his brother Kyle and sister Michelle as the Texas Mafia.

The Utah engineering student:
Adam Richards dreams of designing or flying helicopters.
US: If you were a superhero, what would your name be? Why?
Richards: Super Dusty. Dusty was my nickname as a kid.
US: What is your pet peeve?

US: What is your personal philosophy on life?
Richards: It’ll be all right.
