Goodbye To A Legend

 Chavo Guerrero Sr. January 7, 1949 - February 11, 2017

Today I'm heartbroken to hear about the passing of Chavo Guerrero Sr. My condolences go out to Chavor Jr. and the entire Guerrero family.


In the world of lucha libre the connection to Japanese wrestling is undeniable. Men and women have battled from the land of the rising sun to South of the board, delighting fans with their skills and unforgettable characters. Arguably one of the most successful men that have helped build this connection is Chavo Guerrero. Chavo had many ring wars over the NWA International Junior Heavyweight Championship in the U.S., Mexico, and Japan.


The Legend of Chavo Guerrero - The Mountain Goats

"Today the world lost a true rebel. He did things "HIS" way. Not always right, not always wrong, but He always followed what he believed in. He was diagnosed with Liver Cancer in early January of this year. As a believer in Christ Jesus, he is now in Paradise. Today is a Sad day in the Guerrero Family. Rest In Peace Chavo "Classic" Guerrero Sr." - Chavo Guerrero Jr, via Instagram

Update & A Baby

October was a busy month. Things have been a little crazy. I had a birthday, we moved, and I've neglected my website again. However, the biggest news is that we welcomed Baby Briar into the world!

Briar Lucinda Love Grundon - 7lbs 11oz
Oct. 13th, 2016

It was nice to have us all together when we took Briar home from the hospital. We are all moved into our new place. We still have a little work to do on the house, but we won't be staying long. We still have our hearts set on moving out of Indiana as soon as possible. 


Meanwhile, I have officially announced (via Twitter and Facebook) that I've started rewrites on the book incarnation of TERMS. After talking with Joshua Hull, Mike Dobrzelcki, and two different publishers, we've decided that it's time to get this book out. Stay tuned for more details!

Now that things are settling down I'm ready to get into some serious writing.

Let's Get Ready To Lucha!

I'm very excited to announce that I will be a staff writer for Rudo Can't Fail. RCF is a new monthly English lucha libre magazine, published in conjunction with Masked Republic and LuchaDubs. The first issue ships in November.

With the success of El Rey network's Lucha Underground and the recent English presentations of AAA PPVs, interest in Mexican wrestling is at a fever pitch.

It is no secret that I am a huge fan of lucha libre. RCF gives me the opportunity to combine my love of lucha and writing. I'll be able to point fans in the direction of the best Mexican wrestling on the internet and share information about the best promotions from around the world.

You can find RCF on Facebook or on Twitter @RudoCantFail.

Stay tuned for more information and details on how to get your copy of Rudo Can't Fail!
