Website Role: Owner/Chief Editor
Bio: I’ve been a wrestling fan for almost 25 years now. I watch almost every major promotion in the world such as WWE, TNA, NJPW, PWG, ROH, SHIMMER, Stardom as well as of course the British Wrestling scene. I started Wrestle Ropes in late 2012 as a Facebook page with a website following four months later as a way to consolidate information on the best promotions in the UK in one place as at the time, nothing like that existed. Fast forward to present and Wrestle Ropes is bigger than I could ever imagine with traffic from all over the world and more promotions covered than I could imagine. The website has featured some very well known stars of British Wrestling through interviews, features and columns which all seemed impossible just a few years ago. British Wrestling is already grown so much since 2012 and continues to grow all the time. Hopefully the website will continue to grow with it and we continue to produce content which you engage with and enjoy.
Website Role: Scottish Results & Events Editor/Writer
Bio: For just about 20 years (jeez…I didn’t think it was that long), I’ve been watching professional wrasslin’. I’ve watched the Attitude Era, the Ruthless Aggression Era, the good times, the bad times and the awkward times. In 2012 I attended my first British wrestling event and from then on I consumed my life with professional wrestling in Scotland. In 2013 I started a YouTube show called OSWtv which burned out but the upside was I began writing, setting up the OSWtv Facebook page then the website.
Slowly gathering momentum, I’ve been working on the OSWtv ‘brand’ for the last 3 years building a great source for Scottish professional wrestling. Interviews, previews, reviews, pretty much anything I can think of, or can do, with my limited technological ability. Building some great relationships with the likes of Wrestle Ropes who were kind enough to allow us to reblog results and help on the Facebook page, now we’re joining forces like The Megapowers, or their Dean Ambrose to my James Ellsworth (a joke that will be irrelevant by next year).
I’ll be helping out with posting results and, you never know, I might pop up with an article or two.
Website Role: Results Editor/Writer
Bio: I’ve been a wrestling fan for 15 years after first seeing Wrestlemania X7 on VHS. Ever since then I’ve been watching WWE, barring a slight hiatus in late 2011 and 2012. In 2013 I went to my first independent wrestling show at the Beach Ballroom in Aberdeen, Aberdeen Anarchy presented by WrestleZone. Once I had discovered that independent wrestling existed in Scotland, I soon found myself watching ICW on the regular and after a year of waiting for my 18th birthday, I attended Fear and Loathing VII, my first ICW show. I try to watch as much wrestling as humanly possible but the main promotions I keep up with are WWE, ICW, PROGRESS, PWG and ROH.
I first got involved in writing about wrestling when my fellow Editor; Billy, asked me to become an admin for his site, OSWtv, in mid 2015. Since then I’ve been writing articles for him and helping out where I can.
I was asked to join the Wrestle Ropes team as an Editor in November of 2016 and have since been writing the occasional article and helping keep our results up to date.
