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, watch and review a match that occurred on that day. For example, on January 1, I’ll post a review of 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

That’s basically it. I started out with more rules, but it’s enough of a challenge keeping up. In the spring of 2021, my family and I got COVID-19. That plus some other family issues, plus a big work opportunity that came along in the summer, meant I had to put the project on the back burner. My plan is to revise the initial batch of 60 matches, rewatch them, and maybe swap out a couple of lackluster entries from that group, while I build up a queue of entries and then do my best to stick with the calendar during 2022.

I hope you’ll be back to join me on this journey.
