Danny Limelight Rivera is one of the most talented wrestlers on the independent scene today. He is known for his work in Championship Wrestling from Hollywood and NJPW STRONG. Limelight is a charismatic wrestler that may or may not have the proportional strength of a spider. If you’re not familiar with his work then allow me to explain why Danny Limelight is your next favorite wrestler.
He’s got the “it” factor
I don’t like saying someone has the “it” factor because it’s unquantifiable. However, if the phrase accurately describes anyone it’s Danny Limelight. He just jumps off the screen due to his energy. Comparisons to Rocky Romero are not only apt because of look but also personality. Just like Romero, Limelight’s personality is infectious and engaging.
Limelight is from Brooklyn
Tupac Shakur once said, “I remember goin places and motherf***ers was scared to say they was from anywhere but Brooklyn.” Danny Limelight is from Brooklyn and hence is a product of its vibrant Puerto Rican culture. Limelight is certainly very proud of his roots. It not only made him who he is but it’s also why he does what he does. His pride in being Puerto Rican, an American, a son, and a father is what drives him.
He is a former Marine
All the coolest fictional characters have military backgrounds. Jack Ryan, Dirty Harry, Frank Castle, Ben Grimm, and Benson Payne for example. However, Limelight’s backstory is no work of fiction. Danny Limelight served his country in the United States Marine Corps. Although he’s somewhat jovial in the ring, he carries an air of discipline that only comes with military service. The former drill instructor certainly doesn’t sweat much knowing that he helped create over 300 men that are tougher than you.
Limelight is a budding actor
It’s not surprising that the guy is trying to break into Hollywood because his name is Limelight. Danny Limelight acts and is an accomplished stuntman. It not only keeps him on his grind but the experience makes his wrestling persona far more polished than most. I believe because of this attribute he could fit into most major promotions today. Nobody can find a camera like Danny Limelight.
Limelight is a Marvel Fanatic
Many wrestlers wear their comic book fandom on their sleeve but how many have the Spider-Man logo tattooed on their chest? Danny Limelight is clearly a huge Marvel fanatic because of his tattoos and toy collection. So, what does this have to do with Danny Limelight being your next favorite wrestler? Well “true believers”, it’s no coincidence that the common theme that makes Marvel a pop culture phenomenon is the same reason you’ll love Danny Limelight. It’s the relatability of trying to stay true to yourself and giving your honest best for the ones you love. “Excelsior!”
