Back in 2012 I did a column that I always consider as one of my all-time favorites. And it was called “Heroes of the Ring”. This column correlates two mediums I enjoy that are very different but the same in many ways: comic books and pro wrestling. The goal of the column was simple, show that the “faces and heels” from WWE lore are not that far apart from the “heroes and villains” in superhero comics. The good guys were larger-than-life and the baddies were just as detestable. Well, the column did so well that I have wanted to do a part 2 with some of the more modern grapplers in WWE. Read more...

NPW-PRINT-FINALMarvel and DC Comics permeate the comic book shelves for fans attention with so many comics every month that it's hard to keep track. It's why there will always be a place for the little seen independent comics that sit at the checkout counter or in a hidden corner just waiting to be read. When I went to the Austin Comic Con in November 2012, I happened to pick up Nightmare Pro Wrestling from writer/illustrator John David Guerra, who's also a big wrestling fan. After reading one issue, I was in love with concept and had to pick Mr. Guerra's brain on comics, wrestling, and what's next for him in the world of comics. Read more...

424937_500290290004473_916165350_nI grew up to watch and enjoy pro wrestling. It’s one of the many things I’m a bit of a “geek” about, and while the sport is still looked down upon (far more than comics these days) and many people still think that the average wrestling fan is unintelligent, trailer park trash (and don’t get it wrong...there are many people with low I.Q.s that live in trailers that watch Monday Night Raw every week), it doesn’t take away from the fact that pro wrestling has its place among pop culture. Personally, it is a performance art for me. Not like ballet, but more like ballet with folding steel chairs and dropkicks. The naysayers will argue “but it’s fake”...let’s be honest, so are our favorite movies, comics and video games, and we adore and love those. To the point where we will argue who could win in a fight between The Incredible Hulk and Thor as if they are real people! It’s not different whatsoever. And giving people sitdown piledrivers for real would be completely illegal. There’s that too. Read more...

Conway ChampionIf you were a fan of the Ruthless Aggression era in the WWE like I was, you should remember a French-Canadian tag team called La Resistance. They garnered heat like their 80s counterparts, the Rougeau Brothers and were three-time tag team champions. One of them, Rob Conway, a French sympathizer, immediately stood out to me with his honed physique and Buff Bagwellesque looks. Since being released back in 2007, he has kept busy in wrestling with stints in The Insane Clown Posse’s Juggalo Championship Wrestling and now a successful run as the current champion of the NWA. How are you today, Rob, or should I say Robear ? (Laughs) I’m great.   Read more...

On December 15, 1997, Vince McMahon gave a State of The Union address to viewers during an episode of Monday Night RAW. He stated that he would no longer insult wrestling fans’ intelligence by living in the heyday of the eighties to the mid-nineties where he presented a product where “good guys” fought “bad guys. ” The product was going to get edgier. It was going to have more…attitude. Thus, the biggest boom period in wrestling was born, The Attitude Era. Read more...
