2008 was a historical year in Professional Wrestling. Chris Jericho and Shawn Michaels contested one of/if not the best pro wrestling feuds of all-time. I continued writing & reporting on the UK scene, my lifelong dream (attending a Wrestlemania – Wrestlemania 24 live) came true and I met my Childhood Hero – Bret ‘The Hitman’ Hart.

2008 is the year WWE could have catapulted Paul London to the main event (they didn’t, so I fantasy booked him there). 2008 also had some great matches – I share my thoughts on some of the best, lastly 2008 was a big year in terms of the women’s wrestling evolution we are now living through in 2018 (I explain how we have got here) and as a special bonus I share my thoughts on the beginning of 2009.

Oliver, after watching a truly historical and ground-breaking year (2016) in World Wrestling Entertainment, decided to repeat the writing, editing & publishing process in 2017 by releasing the best work of his 14 + year career, (so far) in the form of – A Fan’s Perspective: 2016 – What A Year To Be A Fan Of WWE.
