Wrestling stars from around the country are coming to the Waukesha County Expo Center for Blizzard Brawl 11.

That includes 52-year-old professional wrestler Al Snow. Snow absolutely loves what he does.

"I've been lucky to have gotten to do this for 33 years," he said. "I haven't had to work a day in my life. I've been on vacation my entire adult life."

Snow said his job his fun, but it's intense. "Because regardless what people think of professional wrestling, the outcome may be pre-determined, but it is still a very physical and athletic endeavor."

Trainer Mike Sweeney puts Snow through the paces.

"It's a high performance strength training style regimen so we have to keep his cardio and strength up. So what he does on a physical standpoint it's what's required," Sweeney said.

It's all to keep Snow in great shape for events such as the Blizzard Brawl.

"Yeah, you better be there!" Snow said.

Blizzard Brawl 11 takes place at 7pm, Saturday, December 5, 2015 at the Waukesha County Expo Center.
