University of Houston student making it big in pro wrestling

A University of Houston student is seeing his pro wrestling dreams comes true.

Parviz Memari is a busy man.

Somehow he juggles being a professional wrestler with being a communications major at the University of Houston. His goal is to make it into the most prestigious wrestling league, the WWE.

When he can, he trains with his friends at the Domination Zone Wrestling school in Katy. Because Memari is always going.

"I actually got in at 4 a.m. from Dallas this morning. I got a few hours of sleep, got up and cleaned up," says Memari.

"Packed up my car and I leave for San Antonio tonight. When school comes back into session, I am going to have to study in the meantime."

Interestingly enough, Memari says he wasn't very athletic growing up. "Unfortunately I am not someone that can wake up and say, I'm going to be a wrestler. I have to work hard and there is no substitution for hard work," says Memari.

Colony Soto is the owner of the Domination Zone Wrestling School, and has seen Memari grow up in the ring.

"He is an out and out brawler," says Soto. "He is a beast in here, don't let him fool you."

In the ring, they call him Paul Titan. And because his potential is growing, his chances are too.

In 2015, Memari was asked to sub in on WWE's Raw. "There were maybe twenty thousand people in the audience, with billions watching around the world," says Memari.

"The goal now is to get back to that, and do it full-time."
