November 1, 2019***Hope all had a great summer as I did.  This month I only want to feature a new story written on me on September 13, 2019 by Javier Ojst who writes for ProWrestlingStories.com and I highly recommend going to their site as they tell some great stories of the stars of yesterday.  Javier lives in El Savador which is pretty cool.  A week after the story came out David Sammartino did his first podcast and talked about our match in 1985.  There were inaccurate things that he said  and  I wanted to set things straight, so they asked me to respond in which I did with some things I have never talked about along with some interesting stories I shared.  I have the video and the story up go to ProWrestlingStories.com section to read and view.  Holidays are around the corner so I will be back in March with a video from Tuesday Night Titans.  Thanks to all of you who follow this site, it is truely amazing and worth doing

AUGUST 4, 2016****************This is the one year anniversary of my website and I want to thank everyone who entered my guestbook and took the time to put up pics and at least a couple hundred more who found my off site email.  I responded back to everyone except some who required more personal info, can't give out my address.

This is why this website was worth doing, because of all of you.  It was a lot of hard work getting it started and I have to thank my beautiful wife Cindy for her help.

I never claimed to be a big name , wheather its a breakfast with Ken Patera or dinner with Chief Jay Strongbow or working out with Nikolai  Volkoff and having a quiet locker room conversation with Bob Backlund, they and many others are the true Big Names in our great sport.

I decided to make last nights show on Wrestledelphia my tenth and last news and radio show tour a fitting way to finish in Phila my hometown where I was born.  This all started with the News Press story by Charles Runnells, here in Fort Myers Flordia where I reside.  I have a lot more pics, programs and videos to add, and in Sept will add another upset match which was broadcast on the USA cable network across the country and Canada and who knows where else.  So keep checking my Current Updates section.   AGAIN A SPECIAL THANKS TO WRESTLEDELPHIA'S EVAN (THE BOSS) CROSS

A Pro Wrestling Blog called (Ring the Damn Bell) wrote a story on myself and the Big Upset (Phantom Submission Match). It was written October 14, 2015  saying even they thought this was one of the biggest upsets in pro wrestling.  It was called a MOMENT IN TIME go to menu section to see this story,  This match still remains as one of the biggest mysteries of what happened that night, even tho we heard from one half of the participants in this match, however I have never elaborated of what mighr have really happened that night. They stated that there was confusion by myself, however I was in full charge and knew what I was doing during the entire match.  Ron  10/24/2015

 

Go to new video for a big match I just added.  Also added some new pics to the News-press section and there are also references of my story in other new papers, and have added alot of scrap book pics to the slide show.  I have also added more comments and a picture of myself with  a broken leg  in that nationwide story done on pro wrestling in the news article section  Ron  10/17/15  more to come
