Kevin Was A Wrestler

Kevin is one of the best comedians in the entertainment industry. 

Many people know him for his role in The Kings of Queens, and he earned a huge fan following for his talent. 

But many people are unaware of him being a wrestler. Back in his high school days, Kevin was on the wrestling team. 

He was in the team of Mick Foley, the WWF champion. According to Kevin, he was much more interested in playing football rather than wrestling. 

His high school had a wrestling team. He and Mick Foley joined his team because they needed a heavyweight to join Mick's team. 

Kevin said he was a better wrestler than champion Mike and would easily throw him while they wrestled together.

But sadly, Kevin had to say goodbye to wrestling after he suffered a back injury.

Kevin Lose 80 Pounds For A Movie 

Kevin had been an over-weighted man since his young days. 

When he was in high school, his weight was 150 pounds, but even though he was overweight, he was active in sports like football and wrestling. 

When Kevin started his acting career, he started gaining more and more weight. 

Slowly he realized that this was causing harm to his health, so he decided to lose it. 

He went through intense training and lost 40 pounds, but sadly, he couldn't stick to his routine and got back to his previous life and gained more weight. 

He was 300 pounds, and after seeing himself deteriorate his health, he again got inspired to lose weight. 

While on his weight loss journey, he got a role as a teacher for a movie titled Here Comes the Boom, which motivated him even more to lose weight. 

To fit into the role in the movie, he lost 80 pounds.

Kevin Killed His Wife

Kevin is best known for his series "Kevin Can Wait," where he is the lead. 

The series was started by Kevin, his on-screen wife Donna, and their three children. 

But in the middle of 2nd season, Donna is shown dead by accident. 

Kevin revealed that he and his team were low on ideas, and they had no story for next season. 

So to twist the plot, he said his on-screen wife was killed in the series. 

He also expressed that while making the series initially, they decided to keep Kevin as a single father. 

But to make the series wholesome and more long-term, the wife character was added up.

Kevin Encountered A Tabloid

Kevin went on a vacation in the summer to the East End of the island in Montauk, and in an interview, he described the brilliant time he had there. 

Fortunately for him, there were no paparazzi around him to annoy him on his vacation. 

The tabloid stated a false fact about him, saying that he sent his manager to the restaurant before him so that he could know about people around the restaurant to avoid attention. 

He then expressed that the restaurant was the only place he wanted the waiter's attention to order food.
