A university film student with a lifelong passion for professional wrestling. Began watching in 2011 and have more or less remained a consistent fan since then. Expanded my horizons to other promotions in 2019 and would now consider myself a global wrestling fan. Also an actor, dancer and performer so very much enjoy the logistical performance art of wrestling, both from a physical and character perspective. Long live pro wrestling!!
