Welcome to the first post of Ring The Bell, my look at the crazy, ridiculous, bizarre, unique, and completely awesome world of professional wrestling. After years of bothering my friends, family, and co-workers with my thoughts on pro wrestling, I was finally convinced to start a blog.
And who am I? I’m August Baker, the Special Guest Timekeeper, because every wrestling personality needs a gimmick. And I can’t think of a more illustrious path to follow then that of the guest timekeeper. With role models like Liberace, Vanna White, Gerald Briscoe, and Jonathan Taylor Thomas, I can not possibly be led astray.
I’m going to keep this first post short and sweet. The next few updates are going to be “State of Affairs” style columns about the current promotions I follow. After that, who knows? I plan update this thing at least three times a week, with thoughts on current events and news, in-depth match reviews, wrestler profiles, and reviewing shows both old and new.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I’m going to watch some NXT.
