Tommy Phillips - Sales Consultant
This is Tommy Phillips; Tommy is a dedicated Husband and Father of 5 beautiful children. Tommy believes that a family is not complete until you add the perfect vehicle to fit your family’s needs.
Growing up in Oak Ridge, TN, Tommy lived vicariously through the larger than life professional wrestling characters that he watched perform in the ring. He followed his dream and at age 17, he started training to be a wrestler like his heroes on tv. Tommy was trained under the tutelage of former NWA, WCW, ECW, and WWE Superstar, “The Wild-Eyed Southern Boy” Tracy Smothers. At age 19, Tommy was already a well-traveled wrestler and on the radar of the major wrestling companies like Impact Wrestling and the WWE. In 2004 Tommy, then known to wrestling fans as Shawn Shultz had graced the pages of Pro Wrestling Illustrated and stepped in the ring of the Nashville based Impact Wrestling. “In the Summer of 2005 I had tears in my eyes as my life-long dream of wrestling for the WWE was finally coming true. I started performing for WWE’s Developmental Company, Deep South Wrestling, which was based right here in Georgia.” Tommy proclaimed.
After 18 years of being thrown around the 20x20 stage, an accumulation of injuries caused Tommy to step away from in-ring performing. “As much as I love professional wrestling, I love being a father 100 times more” Tommy explains. Now living in Blue Ridge, GA, Tommy needed to find a career that could provide for his large family. The move from entertainer to Car Sales was natural for Tommy as he explains, “Being physically and mentally strong were two of the most important things in wrestling, but none of that mattered if you couldn’t make it to the event. You have to have reliable transportation to make it to the show to make money, now I have to have reliable transportation to get my kids to school, doctor appointments and all the activities that my wife and I have to play chauffeur on a daily basis”

“I don’t want to help you find a car, I want to help you connect with the vehicle that you trust, enjoy, and that becomes a part of your family” --Tommy Phillips
