Squared Circle, Full Circle by Joe Abel with Scott Stevens

Hello, I’m former professional wrestling manager, Joe Abel. I worked on the independent circuit during the 90s and into the 21st century. You might remember me as Joe Cool, Gigolo Joe, or Al Bino. During my lengthy career in the business, I worked with some of the greatest wrestlers of all time. Alongside these big named performers, I had opportunities to make the jump up to the next level and play with the big boys. Instead, I settled for a long, slightly less successful career, just a step below the big time. I have no one to blame but myself for all the “what if” scenarios in my life, and believe me, there were lots of them.

Even though I was always one step shy of my ultimate goal, I have no regrets today about the decisions I made. Join me and I’ll take you on a fun ride that begins with me as a fan, and ends with a long run as an innovative and successful professional wrestling manager on the independent circuit.
