I grew up reading WWE Magazine and the "Apter" magazines, such as Pro Wrestling Illustrated and The Wrestler and, as far back as elementary school, thought it would be a great job to be able to write about the larger-than-life wrestlers and matches I watched every week. Thanks to Bleacher Report and the readers that take the time to read my articles, I get to do just that, for which I am extremely grateful.

    Hey Erik I just read your NXT Results and Grades for the December 18th episode of NXT and I wanted to share this with you. Please know that I am not a mean spirited guy and I just want to help you out because I do genuinely enjoy your articles.

    "dominated Neville early but cocky and it nearly costed him."
    Erik come on man I think you have a great wrestling mind but that part of the sentence is all sorts of messed up. "but cocky" does not make sense. You need an adverb to describe dominated. Such as arrogantly. Or you could say "dominated Neville early in a cocky manner and it nearly cost him."
    The past tense of cost is cost unless you are an accountant or something and are referring to monetary subjects. Here's a link just in case you think I'm a dumbass : http://www.quora.com/Is-the-past-tense-of-cost-still-cost-If-yes-is-there-ever-a-time-when-costed-may-be-used

    I'm not trying to be a hardass or grammar nazi or whatever but I would like to think that you want to move up the journalism ladder and hey I want you to as well but grammatical mistakes like these are not going to help you succeed. And hey I make errors all the time especially when I write something hastily and don't think for one second that other BR writers don't make these kinds of mistakes because they do. Have a good one dude.

    You need to check your spoilers before you rush to post them blindly in attempts to be the first person on the internet to do so.

    Hey Erik - was a bit shocked seeing a B- rating for the Kane and Jericho match. Being old should play a minimal factor in the match. There were just so many identifiable botches that left me scowling at the TV. Kane going into the turnbuckle which was supposed to be sold HARD and be a finishing point in the match, looked awful and slow. This to go along with Jericho's move from the top rope into a chokeslam and many others. Just an overall absolutely horrible match.
