Albany pro wrestler needs your vote to achieve dream

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany pro wrestler Dab Savage needs the community's vote to make his dream come true.

Savage is in the finals of the TNA Gutcheck Challenge, and if he wins he receives a match on national television.

The Westover graduate is currently in 4th place out of 16 aspiring grapplers worldwide.

He says to win the opportunity would be a gamechanger for his career.

"I grew up watching wrestling as a kid, watching all these guys who I thought were larger than life figures, and getting that shot on TV would mean that dream really did come true," Savage says. "So that's what I'm shooting for. I don't want to wake up at 75 years old one day and wonder, 'What if?'"

To vote for Savage, go to http://challenge.tnagutcheck.com/. Polls are open through Saturday.
