I became hooked on professional wrestling at a young age and began going to the weekly matches in Miami Beach Auditorium when attendance was measured in the hundreds. I watched Championship Wrestling From Florida grow steadily under the vision of Eddie Graham until it morphed into weekly sell outs across the state. During that era of nonstop upward growth I observed the product transform from simple stories and lots of punches and stomps to believable promos focused on competing and winning titles, and an in ring product that featured “wrestling” like I never saw before of after.
This was the style that I tried to emulate during my career. Yes, I did wrestle professionally and loved it. I went on to promote Central States Wrestling with the legendary former NWA president Bob Geigel.
The business of pro wrestling is one you can never fully escape once it hooks you. That might be one of the reasons I created SHANE CARBO, Professional Wrestling Shooter. The series of fictional books I authored about SHANE CARBO and his life in professional wrestling take you from his early days as a fan all through his career, how ever long that lasts. And that is entirely up to you the readers.
Today, in addition to writing more SHANE CARBO books, I own Ultimate Cruise & Vacation in the Kansas City area with my wife Carol, and plan fabulous all-inclusive vacations for our valued clients along side our son Justin. And I still follow pro wrestling.
