Jon Judy

Jon Judy: "The lumberjack match is an old-school stipulation, one that’s been around for so long that now it’s passé and hard to get excited over. The idea is that after a long, drawn-out feud in which the heel routinely escapes the righteous wrath of the face by hightailing it back to the lockers and losing by countout, the fans will be hungry to see a blowoff match, one in which the feud finally ends and there is no way for the heel to abandon the fight."

Jon Judy is a professional educator who moonlights as a ring announcer for local semi-pro wrestling matches in Canton. He's also a very good writer, and his insight into the business and the sub-culture is fascinating.
