TC Kirkham was an avowed wrestling hater until meeting his longtime wrestling devotee wife Kim (now host of the wrestling podcast Ring Around The Rosie), getting into it thanks to her for the first time in his early 30s. He’s been a fan for nearly three decades now. Over the years, he has run a number of wrestling websites, and wrote several columns for PWInsider in the mid-2000s, but got out of wrestling for a number of years, only coming back when his wife started raving about a new company called All Elite Wrestling; from the second he saw AEW’s All Out PPV on August 31 2019, he was hooked again. Now, TC has found the joy of being a wrestling fan again, thanks to AEW and many indies that have become favorites including Game Changer Wrestling and Black Label Pro, thanks to the near-non-stop availability of indie wrestling through streaming services like IWTV and FiteTV.
From the very beginning his all-time favorite wrestler was, still is, and always will be Sean Waltman, and over the years has been a big fan of many others including Chris Jericho, Amazing Red, Chris Sabin, Alex Shelley, Shannon Moore, Shane Helms, and others, but at the moment, his favorites include Jungle Boy, Luchasaurus, Griff Garrison, Brian Pillman Jr, Sammy Guevara, Orange Cassidy, Kip Sabian, Nick Gage, Logan Stunt, Effy, Still Life with Apricots And Pears, Blake Christian, Allie Kat, Hikaru Shida, Lio Rush, Billie Starkz, and of course, the modern-day wrestling god, Mr. Fun Size himself, Marko Stunt.
TC’s match of the year 2020 was Blake Christian v Kylie Rae, Black Label Pro – We’re Back! A Wrestler’s Story (August 23 2020) and his crazy match of the year was Logan Stunt v Nolan Edwards in the absolutely bugshit insane Lego Deathmatch, Unsanctioned Pro 9: Indiana Vacation (September 27 2020).
