Rico Constantino is living proof that dreams are not limited by age, and perseverance coupled with determination can make goals reachable and attainable. Rico can be called an “overachiever”. He graduated at the top of his class in the U.S. Naval Academy, and endeavored in the career of a police officer before testing himself in more physically challenging careers.
He made his television exposure by becoming a contestant on the American Gladiators in 1990, winning his particular round and advancing to the Grand Championship.
In 1998, at nearly 37 years old, Constantino was in phenomenal shape and began his professional wrestling career. He then became one of the marquee names during the WWE “Ruthless Aggression” era, portraying a hair stylist as “Rico”, and managing the tag team known as 3 Minute Warning.
Rico did not stop as a manager, though. We would then use his wrestling talent to become a two-time WWE Tag Team Champion, and defeating legendary names such as WWE Hall of Famers Ric Flair and Rikishi.
After leaving WWE, Rico would return to law enforcement, and become one of the most respect officers in the state of Nevada.
Unfortunately, the constant physical toll involved with professional wrestling caused severe health issues. Within the past year, Rico has visited the doctor five times, and was forced to stay twice. He has two leaky heart valves and two blood clots, and traumatic brain issues.
As professional wrestling fans, let us rally behind Rico to change this state of declining health to transform into the name of this WWE theme song – “You Look So Good to Me.”
PLEASE donate and share. Let’s show the world how strong and unified wrestling fans can be, and makes these medical bills and health issues tapout.
Help spread the word!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Hollywood, California – September 6, 2016
Empire Wrestling Federation is proud to announce that their “old school” professional wrestling product is now being embraced by a new younger audience!
SIRKtv, a National Television Network, has become the “go-to” television provider for many millions of young college students. SIRKtv is delighted to offer their most recent acquisition “EWF: Wrestling of the Empire Wrestling Federation” to 57.2 million (and growing) TV homes.
“We’re bringing back old school!” Empire Wrestling Federation CEO Jesse Hernandez exclaimed. “Now people can experience what true professional wrestling used to be.” He paused, grinned, lowered his voice and added “only better!”
Hernandez enjoyed quite a successful run as an “old school” professional wrestler and referee and just celebrated his 20-year anniversary as an award-winning professional wrestling promoter.
Not only is the EWF brand “going wide” in the U.S., but it also appears that the promotion is now going international. A major Swiss production company is in post-production on an EWF TV one-hour special that will soon be seen throughout Europe. A US-based television company has offered to air an additional EWF-produced TV show, with negotiations to be finalized in November. Additionally, a large Chinese business group has approached Hernandez to produce his TV show and to promote live EWF wrestling matches to huge audiences in China!
“We’re moving very quickly now,” Hernandez explained. “Finally we have the perfect team – amazingly talented wrestlers, great people in front of the camera and a ‘dream team’ of experienced and really knowledgeable professionals behind the scenes. Now it’s time to expose the world to quality ‘old school’ wrestling as true family entertainment, presented respectfully, in a fun and tremendously exciting way.”
“To experience our new show on SIRTtv, you’ll have to “check your local listings,” Hernandez added. “The affiliate stations have different schedules.” Smiling widely, he added, “including the 9 stations in New York, 7 in Los Angeles, 5 in Chicago, 4 in Philadelphia, 2 in Boston, 2 in Washington D.C., 6 in Atlanta, 7 in Houston and 3 in Detroit.”
