SLAM! Wrestling announces columnistSLAM! Wrestling is pleased to announce that Montreal's Eric Benner will start a regular column for our site, starting next Thursday.
Benner fills the columnist void left by the departure of Big Daddy Donnie Abreu.
Our readers will remember Benner from his guest column on July 23 (Staying neutral in the war), which was well-received for its honesty, fairness and lack of bias.
"I guess the response from the readers was as great on SLAM!'s end as it was on mine," said Benner.
Besides columns, Benner will continue to contribute occasional stories and features on wrestlers, such as the account of the WWF charity softball tourney last weekend in Montreal. (WWF takes over Montreal.)
Benner (photo right) is attending Marianopolis college in Montreal and has been a wrestling afficianado for thirteen years. His favorite wrestlers include the Hart clan, Rocky Maivia, Chris Jericho, Perry Saturn, and Marcus Bagwell.
