This is from I’m guessing 1999 or 2000. When rasslin got real hot there were some short-lived indies in the southwest Michigan area, and that’s where I saw some guys for the first time. Kronan stood out as the best of the group at that point. He didn’t have a long career. I think I heard he wound up being a teacher or something? He was in great shape, worked a fast-paced, WCW cruiser-influenced style, had a decent look. He was a solid young rassler. Obviously of this group, Punk went on to the biggest career, and I would wind up seeing him a billion more times with IWA Mid-South and ROH in 2004-06 when I was going to shows.
