Welcome to my web site. I’m Jay French and this site is dedicated to my SHANE CARBO series of fictional books about professional wrestling. SHANE CARBO is my pro wrestling character who takes us on his journey from his days of trying to get into the secretive fraternity-like business of pro wrestling through the early days of wrestling in small towns in the south to catching his first break and headlining, to a return to his first stomping grounds as a polished main event wrestler. Along the way SHANE CARBO encounters both real life and in the ring adventures that challenge, educate and mold him. Shane takes us on the inside when it comes to pro wrestling and backstage politics, life in the pro wrestling territory days, opposition promoters, groupies, kayfabe traditions, beer and blood galore, balancing girlfriends with the demanding travel schedule, and shoot wrestling matches you have never imagined.
SHANE CARBO is not your traditional 1978 pro wrestler. His titled amateur wrestling background, dedication to training and the sport of wrestling provided him with a physical appearance superior to the beer belly performers of the era. His believability both in the ring and on the mic endears him to the fans. His background and ability to shoot wrestle not only got him in the door when others failed but allowed him to compete in the toughest shoot encounters.
Welcome to Shane Carbo’s world of pro wrestling. He loves every minute of it and so will you.
As for me, I wrestled in many of the towns and territories Shane Carbo does. I went on to promote and commentate for Central States All Star Wrestling. You can read all about my interesting but far from famous career in pro wrestling and see many of the photos, magazines, posters and programs I managed to hang on to. So browse around and buy a book. I hope you will be glad you did.
Order a book from this site, pay the shipping cost and I will be glad to personally sign your copy if you are interested.
