Born with cerebral palsy, Iron had a rough childhood as he was often ridiculed for it by peers and classmates. Iron did share a close bond though with his grandmother, who first got him interested in pro wrestling and developed a common love of wrestling. Sadly, Iron lost his grandmother to bone cancer in 1995. Iron also had a tough home life as his mother became addicted to drugs and alcohol, which resulted in emotional and even financial woes and, ultimately, led to the passing of his mother from a drug overdose.
Despite all of these obstacles, the one thing that occupied Greg’s mind and motivated him was his love of pro wrestling.
