As a kid growing up in Pikesville, Ron Snyder always loved watching professional wrestling on TV. The wild action and over-the-top drama attracted him, and Snyder often went to the then-Baltimore Arena with his parents to see live wrestling matches.
Snyder also loved writing and became a local community journalist. But he never lost his passion for professional wrestling – the WWE (World Wrestling Entertainment) kind, not the competitive type of wrestling found in high schools and colleges.
A 1996 Pikesville High School graduate, Snyder has combined his writing and reporting skills and knowledge of wrestling to put together his first book, “Wrestling’s New Golden Age: How Independent Promotions Have Revolutionized One of America’s Favorite Sports” (Sports Publishing).
