Yes, I indulge in a lot of pro wrestling writing. No, I’m not embarrassed about it. For some, wrestling is two half-naked dudes play-fighting in their underpants. For me, it’s showmanship, drama, theater, blockbuster movies, storytelling, and as valid a form of escapism as television, a good book, or computer games.
The following combines links to my published and self-published pro wrestling writing.
Retro Pro Wrestling
Retro Pro Wrestling is a personal project I began a few years ago merely as a place to review a couple of WWE DVDs I was planning to get rid of. Since then, it’s dramatically expanded, and today is the place where I’m working through a mission to watch and review every WWF/WWE Pay Per View from Wrestlemania 1 – 30. Along with that, I also review old pro wrestling magazines, DVDs, merchandise, music and more.
If you’re a fan of my work there, you can also follow me on the Retro Pro Wrestling Twitter account or check out my many pro wrestling Pinterest boards here.
