Wesley was born on March 27, 1954, to Joseph and Grace (Adams) Fierros in Tupelo, MS. He is the third of four children. Joseph was an HVAC technician. Grace is a stay-at-home mom. He graduated 38th in his class from Tupelo High School in 1972. As a freshman, he began apprenticing to be a plumber. In 1975, he became a journeyman. In the same year, his father welcomed Chad Young as a journeyman HVAC technician.
In 1977, he and Chad started CW's Plumbing and HVAC. They met Arnold Adams in 1978 as they came to inspect the furnace at MVW's headquarters.
While Chad had very little trouble figuring out a gimmick, Wesley couldn't figure out what he wanted to do. It was actually Amy Andrews who came up with the idea of Joe Blow. Wesley looked like your average everyday man. She suggested the idea of simply an everyday guy. Wesley added the plumber look, wielding a crescent wrench.
He married Celicia Williams on October 16, 1979 at Northeast Church of Christ in Tupelo. Their son Wesley Jr. (Dance Machine) was born on March 3, 1981.
In the summer of 1996, Chad decided that he wanted to quit wrestling. Wesley wanted to continue. He hadn't done much in the way of singles wrestling. Everything had revolved around Ghetto Gang as one of the most dominant tag teams of the previous two decades. Finally, in October, Wesley agreed that he would retire too instead of trying to find another tag team partner. While Chad put wrestling behind him for the most part, Wesley continued to be an avid supporter. The fact that he had several nephews involved helped garner his continued support.
As of 2010, Wesley and Celicia were still married and living in Tupelo. He and Chad continue to run CW's. He has plans of retiring when the coroner pries his crescent wrench from his cold, dead hand.
