All posts by James Dixon

James Dixon has been watching wrestling for over 20 years. Inspired by the likes of Davey Boy Smith, Bret Hart and The Undertaker, Dixon was drawn to the business like any other fan, for reasons that are difficult to explain. A hobby quickly became an obsession, and Dixon was determined to get involved in wrestling by utilising the one thing he could do: write about it. James is actually a former British professional wrestler, but he has adopted the pseudonym to retain relative anonymity and to distance himself from his past career in the industry. However, that past experience does give him a unique and more inside perspective on things than the others, though he is still a “mark” at heart. James has limited patience for anything in wrestling post-2002, and much prefers 80s and 90s grappling. Curious really, because as you will see, he spends a lot of time complaining about it. James currently lives in the North of England, where it rains the majority if the time.James and his team at www.historyofwrestling.info currently have four books published about pro wrestling (available from lulu.com and Amazon) and plan on releasing many more in the next few months and years.
