... Since 2002
One of the most dynamic and charismatic performers on the national independent wrestling circuit Eric Smalls a.k.a. The Half Pint Punk ™ discovered his calling as a youth spending countless hours studying vintage footage from the WWE, formerly WWF, NWA, WCW, Mid South, AWA, and Georgia Championship Wrestling.
Smalls honed his grappling skills on the mat as a freestyle wrestler as part of the Whitehall (Ohio) Rams high school wrestling team. As soon as the opportunity presented itself, he traded in his singlet for a pair of wrestling tights and boots with the intent of pursuing his life long dream of becoming a professional wrestler and entertainer.
Beginning at the tender age of 15, Smalls began pursuing his education in sports entertainment with an emphasis on ring psychology and the art of cutting an effective interview and promo.
He had the good fortune to train and be mentored by wrestlers who made it to the big show and featured on previous years Pro Wrestling Illustrated (PWI) Top 500 List such as Jeff Big Guns Cannon (founder of Ohio Championship Wrestling), Marcus Dillion, The Hot Commodity Matt Mason, and Nikita Allanov. Smalls continues to hone his craft under the tutelage of Blue Water Championship Wrestling's (BWC) Andrew D’Arcy.
From coast to coast Smalls has entertained fans from intimate wrestling venues to sold out arenas whether as a featured wrestler as part of Heroes and Legends of Wrestling to nationally sports and entertainment televised promotion Half Pint Brawlers to winning the Blue Water Championship Wrestling promotion’s Micro Championship.
2018 was a monumental year for Smalls as he was a featured performer as part of WWE WrestelMania 34 accompanying the New Day as one of the dancing pancakes. (video highlight courtesy of WWE and www.bleedingcool.com)

Thank You Message
Let me take this opportunity to thank all my devoted fans, my colleagues (brothers and sisters) who have accompanied on my journey to entertain the masses as a sports entertainer. A heartfelt thank you to my family, friends, and professional supporters who stood by my side and continue to believe in The Half Pint Punk. ™
Tommy Hilfiger once said: "The road to success is not easy to navigate, but with hard work, drive and passion, it's possible to achieve the American dream.
In closing, a special thank you and salute to America's Armed Forces and their families. Without your sacrifices in protecting our nation's freedom, supporting peacekeeping and humanitarian at home and abroad I wouldn't have the opportunity to perform and uphold my charge: standing up for the people.
