Ryan Rozanskii has been a professional wrestling fan since he was six years old. His first memory of it comes from witnessing Scott Hall win a sixty-man battle royal at WCW World War 3. Of course, that was before alcohol became a problem for Scott. Speaking of alcohol, Ryan is a youngster…not even old enough to consume alcoholic beverages. However, Ryan has used swear words to describe how much he loves Pro Wrestling Ponderings. That is something he’ll never try again, due to the risk of possibly being grounded by his parents. Some people compare Ryan to Butters from South Park. Currently, that comparison has yet to have any legitimacy.

The Role of the Wrestling Reviewer


2014 has been my least favorite year as a fan of independent professional wrestling since I’ve started watching the indies in 2006.  While the quality of shows was pretty low compared to other years, that alone would not keep me down about independent wrestling as a whole.  After all, I’ve reviewed TNA television, Jersey All-Pro Wrestling, and the Women of ...
