SLAM! Wrestling Online Editor, John Powell.
A wrestling fan for over 21 years, your intrepid SLAM! Wrestling Online Editor attended and graduated from Centennial College's journalism program.
He went on to work at Venue Magazine and The Outreach Connection as a film critic and editor. From there he was lucky enough to score a job at Canada's Web Site..CANOE. John's entire ring attire (wardrobe) is black, he is an opinionated SOB and his eyes are crosseyed from watching too many flims. He looks forward to arthritis in his hands (too much typing), glowing florescent green (too much computing) and lungs imploding (too much smoking).
