Aric Byrne Connely (born April 13, 1973) is an American professional wrestler and author best known under the ring name/pseudonym Ric Byrne.
As a child, Ric was hospitalized for several months with third degree burns over his chest, arms, and face due to being intentionally set on fire by a family member. These scars are still visible today, and have been incorporated into his wrestling persona. Afterwards, Ric was adopted by a family with the last name Allen, although he has recently changed his last name back to the family name of Connely.
Famous quotes containing the word byrne:
“As I define it, rock & roll is dead. The attitude isnt dead, but the music is no longer vital. It doesnt have the same meaning. The attitude, though, is still very much aliveand it still informs other kinds of music.”
—David Byrne (b. 1952)
