Last night during Raw live tweeting I made an announcement regarding my position here on DTRTwrestling. After much talk it has be decided by Trevor Decker that I would take the place of Ed Boston thus becoming DTRTwrestlings’ new co founder. I am extremely excited about this opportunity. I promise to bring premium content to our site involving two of my favorite worlds. The world of professional wrestling and MMA.

The Vanessa Era as I liked to call it will be unlike anything you’ve seen. I’m not going to hold back. I won’t censor myself because to be honest that’s not any fun. After all I once was called DTRT’s most opinionated contributor & I fully intend to live up to that name. If you’re a fan of what was once called “the attitude era” then YOUR GOING TO LOVE what I’ll have to offer. Nothing is off limits & anything goes. I hope you will continue to follow me on this ever so awesome journey. Your support goes a long way & I greatly appreciate it.

I would like to take the time to wish Ed Boston all the very best in his life & his future endeavors. It has been an honor working along side you my friend.
