When Rick came to America, life was not so easy. His uncles taught Rick the wrestling business and bought him a sport coat at the thrift store. Rick went on to amass a small fortune sewing sequines on speedos and capes for the wrestlers and their zany managers. After about 6 years of the 'high life' Rick called it quits saying, "you can only be around half-naked men for so long before you relize there has to be another way to earn a living." Moving from New York to New Mexico and changing his name to 'Diamond Jim', Rick opened a chain of pawn shops along the Indian resevations and became the jewlery and silver baron that he is today.
