Meet Daniel Rivera of Danny Limelight
I was born and raised in Brooklyn New York to a humble Puerto Rican family. At the age of 17 I joined the United States Marine Corps. I traveled the world as a Marine for 10 years. Half way through my career as a Marine I had a beautiful little daughter named Khaleesi Rivera. I became a Marine Corps Drill Instructor where I graduated top of my class and made 350 Marines. In 2014 I began my journey to become a Professional Wrestler. Since then I have traveled all over wrestling in as many states and countries as I can. I am also an Actor and stuntman. My daughter is also an actress. I volunteer my time as Spiderman (cosplay) for children’s hospitals and school visits. I was also a youth sports coach for 4 years. I make the most of my time & I love life. My daughter is my biggest inspiration and I strive to be a better man everyday.
It’s never a smooth path. I believe all roads eventually come across roadblocks, obstacles and other minor setbacks. I’ve been broke, homeless, & alone but I always got back up and fought to get to where I want to be. I’m never satisfied and I know once I overcome one obstacle another one is waiting but everything worth having in life takes time & perseverance
I’m in business by myself. I am an independent professional wrestler and I wrestle by the name Danny Limelight. I am a striker, a submission specialist a high flyer. I love to bring the energy for the crowd to feed off of and I never forget my roots as a Puerto Rican from Brooklyn.
I always rather be significant than successful. Success is defined by others in many different ways. To me success doesn’t have a dollar amount. You’re successful when you’re significant and your legacy is one that will carry over when you’re gone & those you inspire along the way will pave the way in your name.
