Heart recipient & fan of pro wrestling gets new lease on life

WAUKESHA (WITI) -- Waukesha's Shawn Weber speaks with a whisper. So at times, you have to pay close attention to what he's saying. That's wise because with every word, you learn why he's a young man who touches everyone he meets.

Because of his life-long health issues, Shawn hasn't been able to go to college or hold down a steady job. But consistent with his caring heart, "The Webz," as he's known, has been able to volunteer as an elementary school teacher.

Shawn also loves pro wrestling and he's been following the action at Brew City Wrestling in West Allis for two-and-a-half years.

Recently, a surprise visit from Brew City Wrestling owner Frankie De Falco and a few of his performers while Shawn was in the hospital, left Shawn shocked. Ask him what he would say to other people going through challenges of their own in life -- and he draws from his love of wrestling.

Complications from the heart transplant delayed Shawn's leaving the hospital and watch his Brew City Wrestlers until mid-March. But when it came, it was a night everyone had hoped for. Shawn was given a life-time membership to the Brew City Wrestlers shows.
