"The Ego" Robert Anthony was one of the first wrestlers I noticed on the Chicago wrestling scene. Ego stood out from the others, because he had it all. He was excellent in the ring and on the mic.
I had the pleasure of working with Resistance Pro Wrestling during his time with the company. He was a great champ and was voted to the Mt. Rushmore of RPro by listeners of The "Or Else" Podcast. I continued to follow Ego after he left RPro, but I only saw him wrestle a few times.
A few weeks ago, Ego posted on social media that he would be wrestling for All Elite Wrestling. Of course, I tuned in. He has made several appearances since then.
I don't know if this is a short run or a longer stint, but either way I am happy for Ego. He deserves the spotlight. He works incredibly hard at his craft and he remains one of my favorites.
Recently, Ego sent a shout out to Johngy's Beat, from his basement gym. I appreciate the kind words. It's typical Ego, on point, crisp and probably in one take. UIt brought me back to good times at RPro.
Thank you to Rob for doing this. I encourage everyone to check out Rob on AEW. You can see their schedule at AllEliteWrestling.com.
