Rich is a high school teacher from Brooklyn, New York and Associate Editor at Last Word on Pro Wrestling. When he's not working, he's a rabid wrestling fan, a Red Bull Season ticket holder and a generally long-suffering Mets, Jets and Devils fan. Father and Husband. He started watching wrestling when he was 7 in 1991. Due to now defunct local video rental stores, the exposure to anything made by Colosseum home video and other wrestling content providers was extensive. He also regularly attends local NYC shows, both small and large and watches as much wrestling as possible.
