  • Erica's favorite G1 Climax tournament was in 2018. Between Kazuchika Okada having a pseudo-existential crisis involving balloons and the incredible B Block final between Kota Ibushi and Kenny Omega, there was something for everyone in that tournament.
  • How did Erica and her husband mark their fifth wedding anniversary? They managed to get tickets to All In and hung out in suburban Chicago for a long weekend where they celebrated both their love and quite the historic moment in modern wrestling history.
  • Some of Erica's fondest childhood memories involved having "ladder matches" with her older brother in the living room where they'd put a "belt" atop a bookshelf and climb it to become what they called "Family Champion." It's a miracle they didn't break anything, like that bookshelf or any bones.


Erica has written in the digital space for over a decade. Her love of writing can be traced back to her mid-aughts teen years, when she filled notebook after notebook with top ten lists ranking topics in a variety of fields from wrestling to music and everything in between. She writes full time for Beasley Media Group (BMG) where she's a Senior Digital Content Editor. In addition to providing editorial support in this role, Erica also covers the rock/classic rock news beat for all of BMG's rock/classic rock radio station websites.
