About the Author

My name is Chad Venters and I live in Reno, NV where I am a college lecturer in Humanities.  I am an academic holding a PhD, but I am also a person that enjoys biographical writing and popular culture.  My interest in studying Jim Hellwig was to bring a well-researched and nuanced view of him as a biographical subject to a larger audience.  His story is a human story, and I wanted to tell that story the best I could.  This research began in 2009 when Hellwig was still estranged from WWE, and has continued until today.  It is a provocative narrative about an extraordinarily complex individual.  My goal is to apply academic and journalistic standards to create a gripping and accessible narrative.  Thank you for taking the time to visit the site.
