Queen of Wrestle Royalty
A woman who came of age in the 1980s and early ’90s, 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.

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.
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.

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.
I’m Oscar Escamilla hailing from the Mile High City Denver, Colorado. I have been a fan of wrestling since I can remember. I grew up watching AAA and the Lucha style of wrestling. Then one day I fell in love with Friday Night Smackdown. I would not miss a show. Friday would come and everyone knew where to find me and I haven’t looked back since. As I got older and I discovered the internet, wrestling became part of my life. I spend hours looking up wrestling history, from early ROH to the great wrestlers of New Japan. This past year I was able to sit front row at a WWE live event and fell in love with wrestling all over again. Shout out to Kofi for taking the time to take a picture with me and chat it up. I’m excited to be part of the team and Wrestle Royalty. I’m ready to give it my all and write about my first love, wrestling.

Writer, director, producer and of course lifelong WWE fan from the UK, I got my first wrestling t-shirt at ten and have been hooked ever since (WWE > WCW). How dedicated am I to wrestling? Well, shows air at 1am over here and I’m sat in front of the TV ready to watch it live, and I book time off work to watch the Royal Rumble and WrestleMania every year. The Undertaker/The Rock/Kurt Angle/Chris Jericho would be my own personal Mount Rushmore because without those four I may not have been the fan I am today. But I’m not all about WWE, because AEW had well and truly got my interest and hope they don’t make the same mistakes WCW and TNA did when trying to compete with WWE.

I’ve been following the circus known as wrestling since 2002 when Shawn Michaels made his return. In the time since, I’ve found myself clowning around and juggling between the different promotions. I’m not afraid to make my opinion and thoughts on people known, especially when they deserve to be taken to the gallows. I hail from a small shire known as Browns Mills in New Jersey and have 2 small furry demons, a large wildebeast, and am happily with my wife of 13 years now. Feel free to tickle my brain and poke around, but be careful that you don’t get stuck in the vortex of craziness!

An 8-year old who was dropped off at Queen’s doorstep with nowhere to turn, Botch has taken up residence inside an old cardboard Frigidaire box (Queen spares no expense) while he toils quite fruitfully for Wrestle Royalty. On top of his many duties here, Botch also obtained his Master’s Degree in Gullah – an Afro-Seminole Creole language spoken mainly in South Carolina and Georgia at the tender age of 10. He has also recently found a second occupation as a translator of episodes of “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” in that tongue.
Botch’s main aspirations are to restore the mighty iron back to “Monopoly” prominence, marry a fingernail model named Hortense, and to finally be able to answer the question, “Why do 7-11 convenience stores have locks on their doors when they’re open 24 hours a day?”
