America’s #1 School Presenter

Marc Mero’s tour reaches students at a heart level and gives them tools and inspiration to face everyday challenges and view their life from a new perspective. Marc shares his captivating journey with  audiences  worldwide and inspires people to examine their life choices.  Listeners feel a greater sense of appreciation toward their relationships and the “gift of time” – and are empowered to make a difference in their personal life, school, career, and community. 


"In my 22 years of education, I can honestly say that this presentation was far and away the best I have ever seen. Marc’s message is all encompassing on areas of concern including bullying, suicide prevention, goal-setting, substance abuse, and what it takes to make great choices in life. Our students and faculty were moved, and more importantly actively engaged in reflection, tears, laughter, and hope for the entire 70 minute presentation. Equally important, our students, faculty, and community are still talking about the presentation and the impact it had on them and their lives."

Despite many obstacles, while growing up in a single-parent home in Buffalo, NY, Marc dreamed big and set lofty goals. His determination and relentless work ethic led to success in high school with hockey, football, and boxing. While on the path to becoming a professional boxer, Marc’s life took a drastic turn and his athletic career was sidelined for ten years. Then at the age of 31, he entered the wrestling ring and achieved fame as a WCW and WWE Wrestling Champion. For 14 years, Marc entertained audiences worldwide as “Johnny B. Badd,” “Wildman” Marc Mero and “Marvelous” Marc Mero – reaching the pinnacle of athletic success — and then lost it all to bad choices.


"Marc, I was in your presentation today at Hagerty High School. I was sitting in the back, by myself & I was going to go home, and take my own life, then I saw your program… I thought about my mom. How much she loves me. I thought about your story, and why God still has me here. I bawled my eyes out in the bathroom, and realized I’m here for a reason. YOU made me realize that, you saved my life.. You came on the perfect day, right when i’d had enough. Thank you."
