James Nies Since the very first time I saw World Wrestling Federation on my TV at the age of 4, I have been in love and infatuated with professional wrestling. From my all-time favorite wrestler Bret “Hitman” Hart, through the attitude era/Monday Night Wars, to the current resurgence of the wrestling business both internationally and on the Independent scene I love wrestling now more than ever. My passion for wrestling and sports brought me to the podcast world for the past 5+ years and I have no intent on stopping. Follow Jim on Twitter
Ryan Miller I have been a lifelong wrestling fan and avid Philadelphia Eagles fan as well. I have been active on the independent wrestling scene for over 5 years. Previously serving as a preshow co-host for Lancaster Championship Wrestling and backstage interviewer for Keystone Pro Wrestling. I also lend my voice as a color commentator to the following companies: Legacy Wrestling, Capital Wrestling Alliance, Pro Wrestling Empire, Atomic Championship Wrestling and Rogue Women Warriors.

Matt Muehleisen I have been a fan of wrestling since my early years, truly getting invested in the attitude era of WWE. Embracing D-Generation X to the fullest gave me a true appreciation of the independent wrestling scene and the hardcore storylines from the mid-90’s translated to a passion for death match wrestling later on. My top 5 wrestlers of all time are Shawn Michaels, Eddie Guerrero, Triple H, Trish Stratus, and CM Punk. Follow Matt on Twitter
Tim Taylor Born in the heart of WCW territory, I’ve been a wrestling fan since I can remember. With that passion, I’ve been able to find myself in wonderful situations that I would have never dreamed. Whether it’s sharing my thoughts and opinions with the 3CT boys, cultivating a community on Twitch.TV, creating content with other passion projects, and being the lead commentator for Excellence Professional Wrestling, I’m always thrilled to start the conversation! I guess that goes to show that over the years, the only thing in the life that I completely understand is the wacky world of professional wrestling and I wouldn’t want it any other way.

“Intern” Mark Hottenstein Born and raised in central Pennsylvania, loving father of two wonderful children and professional wrestling fan since 1986. I attended my first live wrestling event in 1987 and saw Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage, Andre the Giant, along with a dozen other now WWE hall of fame wrestlers. I have been completely hooked on wrestling since. Wrestlemania 3 will likely always be my favorite Wrestlemania. When I’m not watching wrestling on television I enjoy attending the local independent wrestling shows, visiting the local flea markets in search of those items I can’t live without, and spending time with family.
