Hopelessly in love with professional wrestling since age six, she enjoys exploring emotionally impactful moments and the humans behind them.

Sonal joined WrestleTalk in 2020 after spending hours talking to absolutely nobody about her love for Japanese wrestling.

Feature Writer

You might know Tranquilo Club as that one guy on YouTube who talks way too much about AEW. Growing up a fan of WCW and TNA, Tranquilo Club is the guy you got into arguements with in class because he always watched the alternative over the more popular wrestling show.
