John Cosper is a wrestling historian and the author of Bluegrass Brawlers, Eat Sleep Wrestle, and co-author of Kenny Bolin’s autobiography, I Probably Screwed You Too: The Mostly True Stories of Kenny “Starmaker” Bolin.
He started Eat Sleep Wrestle in December of 2014 as a place to share stories about today’s independent wrestling scene as well as it’s vibrant past. The goal is to share stories that give casual fans and disgruntled former fans a reason to give independent wrestling a second chance. John also hopes to open the eyes of young fans and wrestlers to the amazing history of the business, keeping the stories and traditions of the past alive.
When he’s not writing about wrestling, John also writes fiction, film, and curriculum for children’s ministry. He lives in the indy wrestling hot bed of Southern Indiana across the river with his wife and kids, and he occasionally makes it out to see some live wrestling himself.
