Robert Henderson (born August 29th, 1995), better known by the name SOSA Henderson, is an American professional wrestler currently signed to Elite Answers Wrestling (EAW) where he competes on the Voltage brand as the current EAW Champion.

Early life

SOSA Henderson grew up in the streets of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania in a very large household. He has five brothers and three sisters. Sosa, being the youngest, was very mistreated among his family. This caused SOSA to become very distant from his siblings by locking himself in his room and only devoting his attention to watching every single EAW episode weekly or writing poems. As a year or two go by, the landlord has requested for his family to vacate the house due to unpaid mortgages. Thus the family separates with Sosa and two of his close brothers sticking together and moving in with their mother's grandmother. Sosa's grandmother lived in a bad neighborhood, making life difficult for SOSA as he witnessed violent crimes every single day, including homicide, stealing, and gang beef. Drugs were also heavy around the area, of course. SOSA, being the youngest was still picked on by two of his brothers. Lacking guidance from his older brothers, at the age of 15, ended up spending six months in a juvenile detention facility due to numerous counts of theft and vandalism. This lifestyle eventually led to his involvement with the "Ace Trey's" gang in Philly. After some time, SOSA eventually realizes that he would be better off without the gang and chooses to leave that lifestyle behind. He begins to seek another outlet for providing for his mother.
