    The Hall of Pen

    EDITORS

    Romeo Moran (@roiswar) is the Editor-in-Chief of Smark Henry and one of the three hosts of The Wrestling Wrestling Podcast. He gets by in this hard knock life through working in advertising. Smark Henry was his and Stan Sy's original vision of a watering hole for local wrestling fans. He roots for the undersized guys who hit hard, and he likes taking your wrestling questions over on his Curiouscat account.
    Stan Sy (@_StanSy) is the Editor-at-Large of Smark Henry and is also a radio DJ on Wave 89.1, an events host, a freelance writer, and the host of On Deck, as well as one of the hosts of The Wrestling Wrestling Podcast. He also used to be one of the hosts and writers of The Wrestling Gods on FOX. He enjoys watching WWE, AEW, and the occasional New Japan match.
    Anthony Cuello (@cindacuello) is an HR professional and training designer. When he’s not sleeping or reading the Harvard Business Review, he covers NJPW and Lucha Underground for Smark Henry. A psychology nut, he tends to watch wrestling looking for these small nuances of in-ring behavior. He dreams of a wrestling business with good people management practices, and hopes to help make that happen one day.


    REGULAR WRITERS

    Ricky Publico (@TeetotaleRicky) is Smark Henry's resident RAW reviewer... for better or worse. A known lover of wrestling tournaments, he's a sucker for well-executed promos and fast-paced matches. While he enjoys nitpicking shows, he now prefers enjoying wrestling for what it is instead of stressing himself over things he can't control. Let him in.
    Miguel “The Migz” Llado (@the_migz) is your NXT reviewer at the Smark Henry offices. A lover of music, wrestling, videogames, and food, he lives his life tweeting his mind off, Instagramming random food items and locations (@tha_migz), and streaming videogames on Twitch (@the_migz) while he pursues his musical career via his YouTube channel (Migz Llado) and courtesy of his band The Mox (TheMoxGarageRock). You can also add him on PSN (MigzLlado) to show your WWE2K19 (or any PS4) skills.
    Nico Parungo is a freelance contributor for Geeky PH and previously wrote for Epicstream. He provides weekly recaps of AEW Dynamite for Smark Henry and has contributed several reviews of PWR and MWF shows. When he isn't frustrated about the WWE, he's playing video games at home and is bugging his friends with glorious puns. He's new to the world of Twitter drama but is quickly getting hooked.
    Jacob Tambunting is a freshman at the Ateneo de Manila University currently studying BS Psychology. In his high school years, he authored plays for competitions, essays for projects, and fan fiction for fun. He currently lives with his two parents, his two siblings, and his two dogs, and is probably writing something angsty on his 10-year-old laptop. He breaks down WWE SmackDown and writes The Supercard, where he presents a three-match card of wrestling matches from different promotions based on a certain theme.
    Wreddit_Regal is the resident sports kinesiologist of Reddit's wrestling forum, r/squaredcircle. From the most basic of punches to the most intricate double-team maneuvers, he can explain them within the realm of human anatomy and physics, because when doing absolutely nothing wrestling-related, he also happens to work as an operating room nurse.
    Jackie Arias (@bouvierx) is a writer and former content creator for a feminist lifestyle website. Aside from casually catching up on wrestling news, you can find her listening to music and playing video games she can never finish while drinking copious amounts of coffee. Her Twitter and CuriousCat are open for story suggestions and comments—or photos of your cats.
    Steven Tan (@steviesaidyup) works for an e-commerce company by day and operates The Geeky Juans podcast and blog by night. He's a fan of the Anaheim Ducks hockey team, comic books, and the Moomin franchise. You can find more of his geeky thoughts on Twitter.


    WRITERS AT-LARGE

    George Carlos Pastor pops up and kips up for Smark Healthy content. He wrote our weekly #WTFWednesday column as well as all things MMA-related. He got into judo because it was the closest sport available where it was perfectly fine to slam someone without getting expelled.
    Lance Tan Ong has been a banking guy for the past few years but a wrestling guy for most of his life. And after checking out matches of Mitsuharu Misawa and Shinya Hashimoto at an early age, he's also pretty much a puro guy as well. Currently checking out WWE (mostly NXT), NJPW, DDT, and other promotions that catch and demand attention. He recently spearheaded the Smark Henry Hip Toast series—our happy place where we interview various personalities in pro wrestling, shoot from the hip, and raise them a toast. He previously handled NJPW news and coverage for Smark Henry.
    Marck Rimorin (@marocharim) is an advertising professional, writer, bookworm, and overthinker. While a lifelong WWE fan, he also watches puroresu, lucha libre, and old clips of European wrestling. When not caught up in reading, making brand communications, or eating waybread under the shade of mallorn trees, Marck wrote the overthink piece for Smark Henry: The Word on the Rings. He writes occasional wrestling obituaries, too.


    PAST CONTRIBUTORS

    Mark De Joya (@MDJSuperstar) is an advertising professional and brand strategist by day, but dreams of being the Vince McMahon of the Philippines by night. He wrote anything to do with numbers for Smark Henry: People Power (our weekly fan survey), Best For Business (our regular financial report), and Basic Smarkometrics (our PWR Power Rankings). With 18" arms and a 395-pound squat, he was also the official bouncer of the Smark Henry offices.
    Jocs Boncodin (@caboncodin) was a Managing Editor of Smark Henry. He answers emails by day and watches wrestling by night. An aspiring writer, Jocs spends most of his idle time fantasy booking angles and overthinking wrestling storylines. A big fan of the WWE, his introduction to the local online wrestling community Smark Gilas-Pilipinas has opened his eyes to the wonders of puroresu and lucha libre. He handled Smark Hen-XT, the site's weekly NXT review.
    Mikey Llorin (@mikeyllorin) was a Consulting Editor of Smark Henry, as well as a teacher, performer, events host, and critic. Mikey wrote The Critical, which covers aspects of wrestling through the lens of literary/cultural criticism. He enjoys WWE, NXT, and Lucha Underground, and he has set his critical eye on the Philippine wrestling scene.
    The Throwback Tito is Enzo Tanos, a freelance writer and the drummer-slash-manager for garage rock band The Myopics, where he hopes to debut his masked lucha drummer persona “Sin Verguenza” in future gigs. A wrestling fan since childhood, he’s old enough to remember watching Outback Jack’s pointless vignettes, and One Man Gang’s politically-incorrect transformation to Akeem the African Dream.
    Michael Bueza (@mikebueza) is a data curator for Rappler.com and a huge trivia geek (FACT!). He was a Managing Editor of Smark Henry. A post-Attitude Era wrestling fan, he caught up with what he had missed by literally reading through all WWE (and some WCW) pay-per-view results on the Internet! He posted quick show and PPV results for the site and conducted interviews on the side.
    Jofer Serapio (@ShawarmaJoe) reviewed WWE RAW for Smark Henry. He has been an avid professional wrestling fan since grade school. These reviews are as close to professional wrestling as he can get. According to him, Kevin Owens is his best friend in the whole wide world. These people are terrible recruiters.
    BJ Recio wrote articles about Manila Wrestling Federation (MWF).
    JP Abcede, CIS, has an ongoing love-hate relationship with the WWE, depending on what Bret Hart's mood for the day is. A financial adviser and Certified Investment Solicitor (that is what the CIS stands for after his name) by profession, he catches up on his weekly dose of pro wrestling by streaming shows and using them as background noise while he is doing something else. This way, he is able to zone out the boring parts while remaining productive.
    Ardelle Costuna (@aandthejets) works at a news organization somewhere along EDSA whenever she's not watching wrestling. As someone who just recently turned to Japanese wrestling (full-time ish), she is a sucker for no-sold German suplexes, kick-outs at one-count, and whatever the hell Tetsuya Naito is doing right now. Send her your (joshi) puroresu match recommendations and watch her swoon over Kenny Omega, and Jake Lee on Twitter.
    Nicole Le Saux is the first female co-host of FOX Philippines' The Wrestling Gods. She previously handled the Smark Henry RAW Report.
    Raf Camus (@cavemancamus) was one of the hosts of The Smark Gilas-Pilipinas Podcast. He is an aspiring wrestler and all-around marketing and production guy. His wrestling viewing habits include WWE, NXT, NJPW, PWG. and taking in the local wrestling scene at large. He is possibly the biggest Sami Zayn fan in the Philippines. He enjoys long walks with his dogs, Star Wars, and keeping the voices in his head busy.
    Lorenzo Magnaye (@RenzoSaurus) hosts the #HomeRun on 99.5 PlayFM. He once wrote Smark Henry's #ThemeSongTuesday column. It's a good thing, too, since his childhood consisted mostly of watching professional wrestling and listening to his parents on the radio. He's only recently rekindled his love for the WWE, and has been trying to make up for missing out on everything post-WrestleMania XX by praying to Seth Rollins thrice a day.
    Brandon Sy is a PhD student in Biochemistry and Molecular Genetics currently based in Sydney. Since he wasn't allowed to watch wrestling as a kid, he's been overcompensating ever since. Despite being a huge fan of Japanese wrestling, he still holds a soft spot in his heart for WWE's Kane. He's good for recommending matches from pretty much anywhere, whether it be Japan, Europe, the US or Mexico. He'd be ecstatic if you watched Dragon Gate though.
    "The Senyorito" Jake De Leon (@SenyoritoJDL) is the tractor-riding, helicopter-flying, payrolling, alipin-dropping, son of a haciendero and master of Minimum Wage, Maximum Rage. He's been a wrestling fan ever since he was a little senyorito, growing up on the WWE and later on growing his wrestling palate by including TNA, NJPW, ROH, and LU. He's currently part of Philippine Wrestling Revolution, aiming to help bring professional wrestling to prominence in the country through PWR and Smark Henry.
