"On Oct. 19th of last year, I asked Kristi to give me one year to attack and pursue a new dream after I retired from Greco-Roman Wrestling...
"It ended up taking two weeks longer than I asked for, but I think she'll forgive that -- considering we've moved to sunny Orlando, FL just as the Minnesota winter was about to kick in.
"I am proud to announce I have signed a contract with WWE and begin training tomorrow at the WWE Performance Center here in Florida. For those that have known me a long time, you know being a pro-wrestler has been a dream of mine since I was 11 or 12 years old. I'm honored and humbled by the opportunity. I am extremely lucky to have a wife and family that has supported me in every dream I've chosen to chase, however unlikely it may be. Never underestimate the power of a good support system, people!
"For those interested in following the journey, feel free to follow me @chasbetts on Twitter. See ya down the road, friends!"
