Our Team:

ShayneShayne has been a wrestling fan since 2008 when he stumbled upon a midnight airing of SmackDown. Jeff Hardy had just won his first WWE Championship at Armageddon and was about to wrestle Edge in the main event. After watching that match, Shayne was hooked on professional wrestling and hasn’t stopped watching since. (He still holds a little bit of a grudge against CM Punk for being the one that “forced” Jeff to leave WWE in 2009.)

Formerly, Shayne was a contributor to FanSided‘s DailyDDT website, where he met Brendan Mizgala, and the two would start the Wrestlaholic podcast, they then started the website to give wrestling fans the wrestling coverage they deserve.

brendanBrendan is a lifelong wrestling fan. Having grown up in Upstate New York, the WWE was his main source of wrestling. During the Monday Night Wars, he’d record Nitro and watch it once RAW ended. Now he and his wife attend local independent shows as well as catching the weekly programming.

Brendan is not only an editor, and contributor here on Wrestleaholic, but is in charge of our Japanese wrestling coverage as well. He runs our Wrestlaholic Japan Twitter account, while also writing and editing our Japanese content.


Dominic Punt is our contributor from across the pond. Dom is a third-year student at Southampton Solent University working towards a degree in Sports Journalism.

Dom has been a fan since he was 11, with a resurgence in his fandom at WrestleMania 31.

Dom is now our U.K. Director and Editor. That means he is in charge of our Wrestlaholic U.K. Twitter account and is also in charge of all of our U.K. content on the site.

Mike is also a huge fan of Stone Cold, The Rock, AJ Styles, and of course the Bullet Club. Submission and Strong Style wrestling are his favorite wrestling styles.

The art of storytelling is essential to keep fans engaged in the match.


ZakI’m a cell phone salesmen by day and a wrestling filmer and photographer by night.

Steven’s writing work includes sketches you’ve never heard of, plays you’ve never seen performed and over 1000 wrestler statistics sheets that will never see the light of day. Steven has taught English but believes grammar is mostly a lie.
