Grader Bio of the Month:

My name is Michael Cook. I’m married with 3 kids living in Naugatuck, CT  My first clear memory of wrestling was the match where Macho Man dove onto Ricky Steamboat “crushing his larynx”.  I was hooked ever sense.   The only Wrestlemania I have ever been to was 19 in Seattle, (and also the Raw of the next night.)  Some of the most memorable moments that I have seen live was Austin’s last match, Goldberg’s debut.  The last appearance of John Laurenitis, the night where R-truth became number one contender (who would have ever imagined).  Which was also the same night where Edge retired.   Also a random Mohegan Sun event that Scott C was also at, which was the night Matt Hardy returned after that whole thing with Edge and the return of Tatanka for the Eugene Invitational.   My favorite all time match, is Rock vs Austin at 19.  I know it wasn’t their best but being there live was awesome.  My favorite wrestler (please don’t judge) Chris Benoit.
