So I’ve been thinking about it. I want to write a book. I want to write about the reasons I’m a wrestling fan and the moments that have defined and strengthen my love of professional wrestling since I began watching 24 years ago. This, of course, begs the question: If I were to write a book, would anybody buy it? Let me know!
The founder of BoredWrestlingFan.com and it’s parent company, Fropac Entertainment, ThinkSoJoE has been a wrestling fan since he first saw WWF television in 1986 at the age of four. His first wrestling memory was Hulk Hogan on Saturday Night’s Main Event talking about getting King Kong Bundy in a cage at WrestleMania 2. Sixteen years later, he met Hulk Hogan on the eve of WrestleMania X-8. On December 9, 2013, he legitimately won a Slammy Award (Best Crowd of the Year). ThinkSoJoE currently hosts the weekly BWF Radio podcast.
I would. Then again I'd pretty much buy any book on wrestling not written by Chris-Chan. I'm working on one about southern wrestling in the 70's and 80's. Once I get a rough draft finished I'll send you a PDF of it (and anyone elose that wants it). One of the stories I have in it is about watching a local show back in the early 80s and seeing a young Jim Ross ref all three hours of the show.
I'll definitely take a copy. I love reading about wrestling. I need to catch up, I wasn't reading anything for a while but Eric Bischoff's "Controversy Creates Cash" got me back into it. I actually have an autographed copy of "Wrestling's Greatest Moments" on my shelf, and that book is definitely the biggest inspiration on the one I'm working on.
I'll buy it, only if I get 75% of all profits made from the book 😛
Are you going to write 75% of the book for me? 😛
No! Don't let him do that! He's Australian. He doesn't even speak English. 😛
If you need help, turn to the person who teaches journalism (among other things). 🙂
I would. I actually like the idea of a book explaining (or at least trying to explain) why a fan is a fan, and the specific moments that stand out.
That's precisely it. In fact, the working title is "You Know That's Stuff's Fake, Right?" It's going to be an attempt to explain why I love pro wrestling and why it's highly likely that nothing will ever change that fact.
That title is great!
