BiB004: Street Fighting, Vacuums and Meeting Your Wife by Amputation With Dom Dumais

Domnick Dumais is taking a more colorful route through life than most people. From starting ice skating at age 2, things took a turn for the more extreme when he got stabbed at age 12, before becoming a TV-featured, teenage pro-wrestler. And that was just the start of it.
