QUEEN KB – Queen of Wrestle Royalty
A woman who came of age in the 1980’s and early 90’s, Kendra has a long view of professional wrestling, its stories, characters and performers. She is the person who introduces professional wrestling to her friends and acquaintances – getting them past the “wrestling is fake” stigma, and showing them the sport through her own eyes. Her love for professional wrestling is infectious and proves to be a great conversation-starter in surprising places. Kendra’s writing about wrestling began quite some time ago, as she wrote a detailed summary of each episode of the WWE’s flagship show RAW for an online wrestling information site. After a few years, an opportunity arose to start writing opinions and then news, she jumped in with both feet. Soon to be dubbed ”Queen”, she developed a devoted following who look forward to chatting with her during pay per view events and in the comment section of her blog entries. She balances wrestling with a healthy dose of parental guidance, mothering, wisecracks and sound advice. Many weekends are spent getting away from the modern world and celebrating the best parts of medieval life with her friends and family in the SCA.
SIR MITCH – Writer/Social Network Manager
I have been a Pro Wrestling Fan ever since the humble age of three. I don’t claim to be an expert, but I know enough about the industry to get me into trouble! Often opinionated, never duplicated, I am Sir Mitchell of Australia! First Duke of Wrestle Royalty and Scourge of WWE Drones everywhere.
SOVEREIGN S.A.M. – Writer
My name is Sam A. Melara, better known as Sovereign S.A.M. to all of you here at Wrestle Royalty, and yes, those are my initials that do spell out “SAM” and yes, I consider my initials to be among the coolest ever. I live in a somewhat small town of Norwalk, California. It’s in the Southern California area and am currently working on my AA degree in Paralegal Studies. I have been a fan of pro wrestling for as long as I can remember and the match that truly made me a wrestling fan was Mr. Perfect vs Bret Hart from Summerslam 1991. My favorite wrestler of all-time is Bret “The Hitman” Hart. I have grown up watching just about every promotion I was able to from WWF/E, WCW, AAA and CMLL Lucha Libre and everything in between. Currently, I would say my favorite wrestler is A.J. Styles with Tetsuya Naito coming in at a close second. I have loved being a part of the community being built here at Wrestle Royalty and am looking forward to watching it continue to grow.
DUKE DRE – Writer
What’s good everybody, I’m Dre (Andre R Holly II). I’ve been a fan of pro wrestling fan since the late 80s (around the time I was 4 or 5) and am thankful for the opportunity I’ve been offered by the Queen to join her and the rest of the crew here at Wrestle Royalty that I’ve had the privilege of discussing wrestling with over the past few years. I consider the people here my wrestling family. We’ve often laughed together, debated and argued amongst ourselves like siblings at times but we’ve always shared a genuine respect for one another and a special bond because of our love of wrestling and I’m excited that we’ll continue to have that opportunity going forward. I look forward to being able to share my thoughts and opinions with everybody here as it pertains to wrestlers, backstage news and events that occur and whether those of you reading agree or disagree with some of my views/opinions, I look forward to hearing feedback from you. But most important of all, I hope you guys who frequent “Wrestle Royalty” are able to find a home here discussing wrestling.
JESTER JASON – Writer
My name is Jason and I am from Cincinnati, Ohio. I am currently married for over 10 years to my wonderful wife, Angela. We have 4 cats and 1 dog. I am presently employed as an Independent Contractor that delivers for Amazon and Instacart in the Cincinnati area. I became a wrestling fan in 2002 when Shawn Michaels returned to the ring against Triple H. My favorite wrestler of all time is Shawn Michaels. I have always loved his in ring charisma and agility. My current favorites are Jeff and Matt Hardy. I love watching them perform the high-risk acrobatics. My favorite match of all time has to be the first HBK vs Undertaker at Wrestlemania. That match, for me, was just something that I had never seen before. My favorite in-ring moment is a tie between Jeff Hardy diving off the old Raw set and the first time he went through the ladder at WrestleMania.
BARON BOTCH – Webspinner/graphics/video/audio/memes/other things
Hey, kids, I’m Botch. I began as a humble fan of what was happening at the other place where Kendra, Marie, and the others congregated and one fateful conversation on Facebook brought me here to work on the best professional wrestling website of its kind. I do many things but all of them are done at the service of the amazing writers who put the work in and the even more amazing readers who support us daily. We’re all so thankful for that and we hope you enjoy reading the site as much as we enjoy producing content on it.
I also work on other websites. One such site is here: http://vinylalbumcovers.com. If you’re into album covers and musical nerd-ism, this will be right up your alley. Have a look!
