Mike Mizerski and David Peck talk about fear, football, mottos and mantras, his long time battle against cancer, the road to recovery and why family, friends and community are so important.

The Relentless John Atlas is a Canadian Wrestler sporting 225 lbs. of solid muscle and a height of 6'2. John is clearly a force to be reckoned with and in a variety of different ways. He is a fighter in more ways than one. He is a cancer survivor, has recovered from a drive by shooting that nearly took his life and continues to fight a variety of issues inside and outside of the ring.

His real name is Mike Mizerski. He re-branded in 2018 due to life changing circumstances. After battling cancer several times, he knew that he had to share his story in order to motivate, connect with, and be a positive role model for his fans. As a former CFL player, he knows what it takes to work hard and be the best he can be. Having been trained by former wrestler Lance Storm, he's learned some of the most coveted tricks of the trade. 

On todays Face2face podcast, Mike Mizerski and David Peck talk about fear, football, mottos and mantras, his long time battle against cancer, the road to recovery and why family, friends and community are so important.
 
The Relentless John Atlas (aka Mike Mizerski) brings his authentic self to the ring for each and every match and is proud to show off his scars. They serve as a reminder of just how far he will go in order to fight back and prevail and also reminds his opponents that he is a force to be reckoned with.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.

rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
