Eat Sleep Wrestle exists to honor the history of professional wrestling by telling the stories of the men and women who made it great.
Author and owner John Cosper is an award-winning writer with over 25 years experience writing sketch comedy, stage plays, film, television, and fiction. John began writing about professional wrestling in 2013 when he started work on the book Bluegrass Brawlers. He created the Eat Sleep Wrestle website in December of 2014 as a place to share stories about today’s independent wrestling scene as well as it’s vibrant past.
John’s favorite wrestlers growing up were Shawn Michaels and the Von Erichs. His favorite historical wrestlers include “The Black Panther” Jim Mitchell, Stu Gibson, and Elvira Snodgrass. He is a member of Cauliflower Alley Club and an active supporter of the George Tragos/ Lou Thesz Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame in Waterloo, Iowa.
