Since 1989, Mike Mooneyham has written the longest-running pro wrestling column in the United States. He is a member of several halls of fame and has received the Jim Melby Award for excellence in professional journalism.
He was a writer, editor and columnist with The Post and Courier in Charleston, South Carolina, for nearly 40 years, retiring in 2016. But he continues to write his popular Sunday wrestling column and it’s easy to see why.
Mooneyham loves pro wrestling – his passion dropkicks you with every page. He has released a collection of wrestling obituaries from over the past two decades titled “Final Bell: Legends of the Mat Remembered,” which I highly recommend in my review.
In this interview, Mooneyham discusses how he established such close relationships in a highly guarded industry, growing up during the height of the Mid-Atlantic territory, Bill Watts’ reaction to one of his columns and much more.
