One thing you realize quickly when doing the blogging thing, is that nobody's going to curate or celebrate your work for you. In the world of online writing, anything posted more than a week ago is, like, gross, and old, and probably best left forgotten.
Over the next few days I'm going to try rescue some of my Uproxx stuff from the gaping maw of history. First up, a collection of my pro wrasslin' "Fascinating Facts" articles. While these are packaged in a share-friendly way, they're secretly fairly detailed little biographies, which I put a good deal of effort into. I combed the Internet, I watched documentaries, I read books goddammit. Maybe someday I should repackage them as classy oral histories or personal essays about, uh, how the Big Bossman inpsired me to take charge of my life? Or something?
Anywho, I ended up covering a pretty good chunk of the most important names in pro wrestling history (and Jim Duggan). Scroll down to learn a thing or two...
