365 Wrestling: The Project

365 Wrestling: The Project

Greetings, all! I’ve re-imagined my long-dormant WordPress site to focus on my favorite of favorite hobbies: professional wrestling. I discovered wrestling when I was 9 years old, and since then I’ve pretty much been hooked, although there are times life gets in the way and my fandom has lapsed. I’ve also been fortunate to work in wrestling on an independent level, mostly as a commentator but also a ring announcer. I even had the chance, long ago, to dabble in some booking.

For a while, I’ve missed being able to write about wrestling, but struggled to find a way to funnel that desire into something that felt unique. I don’t have the time to work for a wrestling news site anymore, and everyone has their take on the latest episode of Raw, Dynamite, or pay-per-view. Meanwhile, with the proliferation of accessible wrestling content now out there online and the aforementioned life getting in the way, my fandom has gaps. Big, gigantic gaps.

And so, I came up with 365 Wrestling. The concept is simple: for each day in the year, write a match that occurred on that day. For example, on January 1 (tomorrow), I’ll watch a match from a previous New Year’s Day… and so on, and so forth, all the way through New Year’s Eve.

The “Rules”

–Trying to avoid matches I already have seen and remember

–Avoiding the same wrestler or promotion on back-to-back days

–A tag match every Tuesday

–A women’s match or intergender match every Wednesday

EDIT (6/3/2021): Falling behind on entries by about three months due to a combination of work, travel, family responsibilities, and getting COVID rendered the themed entries for Tuesdays and Wednesdays rather pointless.

This will be a work in progress, to be sure, but it all starts tomorrow with a lovely little bout from 2004 that involves two of my all-time favorites. I hope you’ll be back to read my thoughts on that match, and join me on this journey.

Got a match you’d like me to watch as part of this 365 Wrestling project? Let me know by using the contact form on this site, or reach me on Twitter.
