Meet the Team!
Ryan became a fan of pro-wrestling in 2008, then fell out of love and came back to it full force. He watches everything from WWE to AEW to NJPW to Stardom to MLW to NWA to your local indie. Plus, he’s slightly insane and created a document that tells him who his favorite wrestler is, did he like them more this year compared to their history, and what dream match will he probably like the most, all based on matches he’s seen and rated. Someone help him!

Mikey Manfredi is a wrestling fan from New Jersey who has been watching since he was just 5 years old. He started with WWE and has since been diving into more promotions like AEW, Riptide, Beyond Wrestling, Defiant, and more! His greatest wrestling memory is when he and his friends would blatantly ignore "Don't try this at home" and wrestle with each other on a trampoline for hours. It's pretty amazing that he hasn't gotten injured yet.
Zach Batista’s first memories of pro-wrestling were watching ECW with his dad when he was around four or five years old. While he did go on hiatus from watching pro-wrestling in middle school and high school, he started watching more in college and hasn’t stopped watching since. He usually watches AEW and WWE, but has recently started to expand into watching more indie wrestling thanks to his and Mikey’s podcast!
Loren Rosenberg has been an avid wrestling fan since 2008. As time progressed, he has become a great fan of the independents which has morphed into a love for his favorite genre of Deathmatch. Loren has been very excited to share his love of wrestling that usually slips under the radar such as the indies and deathmatch. You can always see him booting up his IWTV subscription or getting ready for Wednesday night Dynamite looking for the next great star in wrestling! His favorite wrestling memory was his first live wrestling show in the summer of 2016 when he attended NXT Takeover: Chicago, as it ignited his love for going to live wrestling shows for the very first time.
Amanda is the lady who knows squat about wrestling. She did watch some WWE growing up so she can call out some of the heavy hitters from the 90s, but for the most part, it's all-new. She is diving right in by learning the vocabulary (and using it in a sentence), watching matches from multiple companies and choosing her favorite wrestler, go figure, it's Cody Rhodes.
Ashley is the lady who knows A LOT! Ashley's love of wrestling was reignited in 2015 after taking a long break. She watches everything from AEW to NJPW to the indies. Ashley loves watching old PWG matches and her biggest regret was never going to a show in Reseda. She will always love Kenny Omega.
Scott has been a wrestling fan since 2007 and has never let it go. Starting as a WWE fan, he now watches everything possible (religiously) with Stardom and Joshi being his main focus (shoutout Sendai Girls). Sleep is not an option for Scott who will spend all the days he isn't working making sure to develop and create wrestling content while also watching it all. Scott is one half of Ring Post Radio and loves discussing anything and everything going on in the wrestling world. Oh, and he also rates every single match he watches because he is crazy like that. Don't you ever forget Mayu Iwatani is the GOAT.
Raffe is a podcaster from the most isolated city in the world Perth, Western Australia. Wrestling is still a pretty niche interest in Australia so he's spent his whole life looking for others to discuss it with. So at the end of 2020 he created his own podcast Faces & Feels. This began as him talking into a microphone alone and telling stories about the wrestling he loves but over time evolved into a weekly interview series where he regularly interviews professional wrestlers from all around the world. Now with over 100 episodes released he has started a new podcast with his friend Curtis called Okada's Shorts where they discuss their love of everything good & bad about one of their favourite promotions New Japan Pro Wrestling.
