IMPACT’s Adam Thornstowe Working ’40-60 Hour’ Weeks In Surgery
Adam Thornstowe, who fans of IMPACT may know as a member of Reno Scum, posted a video message for fans giving them an update on his current life. Outside the ring, Adam works as a surgeon, and he’s currently grinding it out 40-60 hours a week to help his community amidst the global pandemic. The fact that he has been spending time at home outside the hospital has been a blessing to him, and he’s confident that we’ll get through the crisis.

WWC Legend Dick Steinborn Passes Away
In a week filled with heartbreak for wrestling fans, we’ve lost one more legend. Dick Steinborn, who was active in the 1950s to the 1980s, was a multiple-time champion working in WWC, AWA, and other NWA territories. A second-generation performer (his father was a circus strongman), Dick kept in shape even after his wrestling days were over.
He was known far and wide for his amazing feats of strength and popularized the use of squats in weightlifting. In recent times, he’s worked as a fitness instructor and owned a gym. He was 86.
Pro wrestling has lost another great with the passing of Dick Steinborn at age 86. A master storyteller and a treasure trove of wrestling history, Dickie was an amazing mat technician and ring general. The ultimate good guy. pic.twitter.com/aZ0AM7vK7M
