My Sam Story

Although I have been with Resistance Pro since the very beginning, when I came to work with them I didn’t know anyone involved in the company beforehand. They literally hired me on as their photographer because my friend and former WWE/ECW superstar, Mike Bucci,...

31

Of all the people who have come in and out of my life, the only two that I genuinely miss both left the world at the same age – 31. The first, of course, is the “patron saint of R-Pro”, our beloved Sam Thompson. The other was a lynchpin in our...

#WomenOnTop

Jacques and I were blessed (?) enough to be raised by a very strong Italian mother. While our dad worked long hours as a carpenter in our formative years, our mom worked full-time as well. She managed restaurants, supervised a chain of hotels, and was a high-powered...

Be a Dick

The difference between RESISTANCE Pro and other independent wrestling promotions is we genuinely love our fans and appreciate their loyalty. For example, if you come to our shows, you’ve probably seen (or more likely heard) DICK GRIFFITHS from his seat in the...

St. Sammy’s Day

I’m not Irish. I don’t celebrate St. Patrick’s Day. For someone who grew up in the Mount Greenwood neighborhood on Chicago’s South Side, that’s like being an alien. Whatever. I don’t celebrate any other nationality’s holidays...

‘Tis the Season

Every January – usually just after we’ve all taken down our holiday decorations – “wrestling season” kicks in to high gear. Football is nearly over with, hockey and basketball fans have decided wether their teams are worth continuing to...
