By JOHNNY GARGANO - For SLAM! Wrestling

Tales from the NWA President: Blizzards and meeting Jushin Liger
By BRUCE THARPE - For SLAM! Wrestling
The first time I met the legend Jushin "Thunder" Liger was in 2013 in Kobe, Japan. Actually I had most likely met him on an earlier date, as I made my way through the Japanese dressing room shaking everyone's hand. I just didn't recognize him without his mask.

Macho Man in WWE HOF: 'I can dig it!'
By DAVID MURO - For SLAM! Wrestling
Every young man eventually finds a hero to look up to, someone to be like, someone to represent themselves. Some admire Batman, Superman, Michael Jordan, Wayne Gretzky. Some are fictional characters, and others are real people. Perhaps what makes "Macho Man" Randy Savage so special is that he is both.

The fulfilling feeling behind Miracle on Main Street
By TIGER ALI SINGH - For SLAM! Wrestling
This Monday is the sixth Miracle on Main Street in my hometown of Milton, Ontario, and what a ride it's been. It's funny how, through the years, the wrestling accomplishments of my famed father Tiger Jeet Singh, and my own career, have dimmed, the memories fading. Yet we are more fulfilled and happy than we were during our time in the squared circle.

Tales from the NWA President: Our first trip to Japan
By BRUCE THARPE - For SLAM! Wrestling
We were apprehensive on that first trip to Japan. Even though we had met with New Japan Pro Wrestling officials in Dallas and New York City to discuss details of the first NWA World Heavyweight Title defense in New Japan Pro Wrestling in many years, the feeling of apprehension was still there. We were very new at the helm of the National Wrestling Alliance and holding the position of President still seemed a bit strange. Would there be a double-cross for the belt? An in-ring shoot? We had to be ready for anything. Especially in a foreign country.

Ox Baker: 45 years of memories
By DAVE BURZYNSKI - For SLAM! Wrestling
When one of the heroes of our wrestling youth passes away, time seems to stand still for a few brief moments as we reflect upon the memories they instilled in us over the years. They say, time waits for no one, but as I try to recall all my wonderful episodes involving Ox Baker, father time is going to have to take a break for a few minutes, or take a fatal heart punch, as I relive these memories of the past 45 years.

The rib that shrunk Johnny Canuck
By "DIRTY" DAN DENTON - For SLAM! Wrestling
It is at the point where I hate getting phone calls from Canada early in the morning. That is because it can only mean one thing and that is exactly how today started for me. I actually had two calls and I knew it was time to sit down and reflect on my adventures with Johnny Canuck from Vancouver, B.C.

Guest column: Living the dream along with Michael Elgin
By SEAN "DR. MASK" MURLEY - For SLAM! Wrestling
The first time I ever saw Michael Elgin was at an indy show at Durham College in Oshawa, Ontario. He did not have an opponent or a match that afternoon; he was sitting in front of my son and I on the day we were both introduced to independent wrestling. He had a broken arm and was wearing a pink shirt.
