Hulkamania

An article on how & why I became a wrestling fan originally appeared on the world-renowned Canadian Site Canoe, in the SLAM! Sports section: Nostalgic For Wrestling

I’ve written several pieces for Camel Clutch Blog:

I Hope Ric Flair is Still Wrestling at Age 80

6 Humble Suggestions for Vince McMahon

6 Demands of Vince McMahon

6 Wrestling Truths You Don’t Want to Hear, Part 1

6 Wrestling Truths You Don’t Want to Hear, Part 2

“Rewriting the Book” is a Column on Wrestlecrap that looks at a pro wrestling gimmick, storyline, character or event of yesteryear and asks “What If..?” it happened differently. The stories follow the change and tells the tale of the aftermath.

My serialized scenario asks: What If Hulk Hogan Never Left the AWA?

All 10 parts will soon be published on Wrestlecrap as one piece & will be offered as an eBook (which will include an unpublished prologue, epilogue and bonus chapter) as well.

I also contribute to another section on Wrestlecrap calledHeadliesand is like The Onion, but for pro wrestling.

Here are a few of my faux-news articles:
