Friend Encounters: Demolition and Ryan

Friend Encounters is a weekly series featuring friends who have met celebrities.

For the last decade, Pro Wrestling Tees (One Hour Tees) has been the producer of my Johngy's Beat tshirts. They did great work at reasonable prices.

Things changed a bit when the actual physical store closed, making it just an online business. Wrestlers had stores online at PWT. I applied for a store, figuring it was a longshot. I was not a wrestler, nor did I really work within the wrestling business. To my surprise, I was granted a store. I think I am the first non-wrestler personality to have a shop online at PWT.

Ryan is the founder and CEO of PWT. He's a great guy and businessman. He still has the storefront, although it only operates as a pickup place for customers, a printing place and a spot for random events.

Ryan met Demolition at one such event. I always liked Demolition, even though they were made by the WWE as an answer to Chicago's own Road Warriors. Demolition definitely carved their own niche.
