A few months ago I came clean with all of you: I love pro-wrestling. Yes, you read that correctly. A gainfully employed, romantically involved, college educated guy loves watching the WWE every Monday. You can check out the afore-linked blog post to see my reasons or I can sum it up for you right now: it captures my imagination. It’s a never-ending story with a rich history and mythology. In recent years, the WWE product has shifted their attention from in-ring action to telling their story with interviews and video promos. Each one of those segments are carefully crafted by the WWE writers and the athletes are asked to execute them to perfection in front of live audiences upwards of twenty thousand people. A quick look in the mirror reminds me that I’ll never be on the microphone or in the ring, but I’ve started to realize that maybe someday I could be in the writer’s room. So here it is, the beginning of my portfolio for my application to WWE!
This weekly feature will begin in February. The goal of this feature is to embrace nostalgia, keep fans updated, offer my hypotheticals or best guests for upcoming shows and most importantly, make pro-wrestling more accessible and interesting to the large and diverse audience I’m so fortunate to have. Maybe this will segue into a position with the company I so admire or maybe it will just be a fun hobby, either way I’m looking forward to sharing with all of you one of my greatest passions.
