Wrestling With Words: Making Towns - Before My World Grows Dark

Everyone, and I mean everyone, needs to take a moment and read Papa Hales' love letter to the pro-wrestling industry.  Here's a small taste.
I love pro wrestling. Always have. I love everything about it. It has been a huge part of my life for sixty years. I have been watching and going to pro wrestling shows since before I first entered elementary school. It is a generational thing. Some of the greatest wrestlers in the world battled in my grandfathers living room in Edina. He had a lot of connections in Japan and Minnesota and personally knew many of the all time greats. My dad loved it. We watched together and he took me to my first live shows.

While you're at it you should check out the rest of the Wrestling With Words site and their message board. Swing by the WWE & NXT forum and banter about wrestling with me there.
