Bassman Shares Lessons in Life

Posted by Levine Communications Office on March 27, 2013

By: Kathy Portie

rick bassman

Rick Bassman’s life reads like a parable of reinvention and resiliency. And if the Sugarloaf resident has his way, you’ll be reading all about it, too.

Bassman is writing his memoir, “Been There, Done That” while living in Big Bear. The former Emmy-award winner and pro wrestling mogul wants to share his topsy-turvy life as a tale of inspiration. The tagline for his book is “How many chances at life can one man have?” Bassman has identified eight times he’s reached the lows in life only to lift himself up.

According to Bassman’s bio, he’s a Disney executive, been a film and NFL agent, pro wrestling mogul and mixed martial arts pioneer. But it hasn’t all been rosy. Bassman is a stage four cancer survivor, a gunshot and stabbing victim, and a criminal. He’s been homeless and battled addiction. “It’s the ultra dichotomy between winner and loser,” Bassman says.
