Ronnie Aaron Killings, better known to the WWE fans as R-Truth, is also a musician and an actor on top of being a professional wrestler. R-Truth is a multiple-time WWE World Champion contracted under WWE Raw.
R-Truth started his career in 1995 when he competed in the amateur division. He wrestled for WWE (branded as the WWF back then) from 1999 to 2003, going by the name K-Kwik, and went on to win the WWF Championship thrice.
However, Truth was finally let go by WWE before returning on a two-year developmental contract.
He came to the wrestling network under the name “R-Truth” after the WWE changed its name to “World Wrestling Entertainment” from “World Wrestling Federation.”
Killings was born in South Carolina and went to Harding University High School. Before starting his career as a professional wrestler, he played football with Major League Baseball star Ray Durham.
He used to sell cocaine to make a living during his early life.
Killings also participated in track & field and was a gifted athlete in both disciplines, earning many college scholarships, but he declined them to start a career in music.
He finished high school at 18 but kept trafficking narcotics to support his music career financially. He was caught five times, spending brief periods behind bars before serving 13 months under incarceration.
On April 7, 2011, Killings got married to Pamela Killings. The couple welcomed a daughter on November 16, 2014.
WWE banned R-Truth for 30 days in 2011 for breaking the company’s health-related ethics. WWE imposed the ban following a failed dope test. People discovered that R-Truth was using illicit performance-enhancing substances (PEDs).
Francesca Killings, R Truth’s sister, was diagnosed with leukemia and breathed her last in July 2014, losing her eight-year-long battle against cancer. R-Truth calls it one of the most painful times of his life.
