Friend Encounters: Billy Corgan and Nick Hausman

Nick Hausman was one of the first folks I met on the independent wrestling scene. Then known as manager Rinaldo Piven, Hausman was carving a niche as one of the area's most popular managers. We even worked together at the beginning of Resistance Pro's existence. That is where he posed with RPro owner Billy Corgan in the pic below (which was photobombed by Ruff Crossing).

A few years later, Nick started to switch to the media side. Since then, he really has taken off. He has worked his way into many big wrestling situations, including the infamous CM Punk All Elite Wrestling media scrum. There was Punk, addressing Nick. It doesn't get much bigger than that.

He also started Haus of Wrestling, a one-stop shop for all things wrestling. He has recaps, interviews, opinion pieces and more. It's a great website for wrestling fans and a regular internet stop of mine.

Nick has earned all he has. He works tirelessly at his craft. Haus of Wrestling is still young and it keeps getting better. I recently interviewed Nick about all of this at On the Beat With Nick Hausman.
