Man I love wrestling. Granted I’ve been doing this for almost 18 years but it’s crazy to see so many people I know who are making a living doing what we love. Life is amazing

‘Tis the season for being thankful. While 2019 has been an odd year for ROH, I am still thankful about many things.
I am first thankful to Wade Keller and PWTorch for giving me the opportunity to write and talk about ROH and pro wrestling. It is an honor and a privilege to contribute to the rich tapestry that is professional wrestling.
I am also thankful to ROH for bringing me new and exciting wrestlers in an easy-to-consume platform. A lot of people talk about PWG and all of the great matches, but unless you are lucky enough to see it live, you need to buy a DVD at a later date. I appreciate that I am able to see talents like Bandido, Brody King, Jonathan Gresham, and now Flamita on a regular basis. No matter what happens, ROH has made me a better wrestling fan. For that, I will be forever grateful.
