I am a lifelong WWE fan in my early thirties living in Los Angeles, California with my wonderful wife and two dogs.
Teaching high school English is my passion, and I am able to share my love for writing with high school seniors on a daily basis. My favorite pro-wrestlers have always been the “bad guys,” and I used to taunt my friend with my liking of Jerry “The King” Lawler over Bret “Hitman” Hart.
I have attended way too many pro wrestling matches than I can count with my favorite attended wrestling events being Wrestlemania 2000; my first WWE house show in Anaheim, California in 1998; and a WCW house show in Los Angeles, California in 1998. I try to attend all WWE events that take place in Los Angeles. Also, I try to attend as many Indy shows as possible to see up and coming talent.
I enjoy pro wrestling history as well, and the history of its development from the territory system to the national/international system seen today. There is nothing like attending a pro wrestling event live, and I encourage everyone to do it (fan or not).
I have been involved with following and commenting on professional wrestling online since the mid-1990s on newsgroups like rec.sport.pro-wrestling and through various websites I created while in middle school and high school. I am part of the "Internet Wrestling Community," but I try not to get too caught up in what I view as the negative aspects (disliking pro wrestling because it is not how the "Internet" wants it) of the IWC.
I am excited to be attending WrestleMania XXX, the Hall of Fame ceremony, Axxess and the Monday Night Raw the day after WrestleMania XXX in New Orleans, LA.

I have been incredibly busy lately with work, being sick, and upcoming jury duty next week. Suffice to say, I have not been writing articles lately. I am hoping to write one next week. Thanks for the support.
