    My name is Charley and I am a Chicago native and an indie correspondent for If I am not at a show or watching wrestling on my couch, I am usually podcasting with fellow wrestling fans on my podcast called 2 Heels and A Face. I'm a huge fan of well-timed in-ring action and phenomenal in-ring storytelling. Some of my favorite past and present women's wrestlers are Trish Stratus, Becky Lynch, Deliah Doom, Kylie Rae and Su Yung.
