Hello, Bleachermaniacs. I'm a 2010 Westfield State College graduate with a degree in Journalism & Media Arts.

I am a huge wrestling fan. I followed WCW from 1998 until its close in 2001, and WWE from 1998 until about 2002 or so. I was a bigger fan of WCW by far, which was apparent given my lack of interest after it was sold to WWE.

However, a few years ago, nostalgia kicked into gear and I found myself 'caring' again. In February of 2006, I purchased six bootleg wrestling DVDs on eBay out of pure curiosity. One was WCW's Great American Bash 1991. I have to say this was a terrible show. However, it, along with Starrcade 89 and 90, hooked me back into wrestling. Seeing Steve Austin before he was "Stone Cold" and seeing Sting before he dressed in black and hid in the rafters intrigued me to the point where all I wanted to do was research and learn about all thing wrestling.

Two years later, I have amassed a collection of a couple thousand shows and have gotten to re-live some important parts of my childhood/young adult years by re-experiencing favorite years of wrestling (like WCW's Nitro in 1998.)

Who cares if it's 'fake?' It's fun. 8-)

Speaking of fun, I co-administrate a pro-wrestling discussion forum. If you think you love wrestling as much as I do, come join up and get in on the discussions at!

Also, check out Off The Ropes, a wrestling news, rumors, and review show that I co-host with Matty P and fellow BleacherReporter TC Vreeland every Wednesday night at 10PM. You can find us everywhere...

    I see your point on stating "opinions in articles", but that is what makes my artciles great instead of just saying facts.

    Thank you for the feedback Franny. Most people just edit artciles without telling me what I should do to improve.

    Thanks for the read and rating. BTW the "J" in J. Michael Morris might stand for Junkyard, as in Dog.
