The series the once was a common series on this site has once again returned after a short hiatus from the site and we are back with another blog. For those of you who may have never seen any previous installments of this series this is my way of giving back as I search the internet for wrestling blog sites and pick a post from the site to share with all of you. Now I don't think many people know that even in wrestling some talent have agents that handle their bookings it doesn't matter if it's wrestling related or not.
"Drew Galloway, Samoa Joe and A.J. Styles are among the biggest names to become available on the independent professional wrestling scene over the past couple of years. One of the first people they got in touch with was Bill Behrens.
Behrens is the most prominent and successful agent in the wrestling industry. He currently represents some of the biggest names in the business, and has dozens of clients who he books dates for. While he has booked and promoted shows and wrestlers, Behrens never was an in-ring performer. His past lies in television.
Behrens’ father worked in television, which is how he got his start. As a child, Behrens appeared in children’s programming his father produced and sold. He graduated from Emory University in Atlanta and went to pursue a law degree at Wake Forest. After about a month, though, he decided that law wasn’t for him. He then began working as a syndicator for his parents and Universal Television, among other companies, before getting his first break working in wrestling. In 1993, Behrens, who was always a fan of professional wrestling, wrote a letter to the Pro Wrestling Torch. It was ridiculing a Jim Crockett Promotions television taping that was shot in high definition television, thinking that was the next big technology. That wasn’t the case in 1993, though, so Behrens felt the need to bring some of Crockett’s issues to light."
Bill has a long history in the wrestling business and it doesn't matter if it was working for WWE, TNA, USWA, JCP, or even owning his own company, Bill had a great mind for the wrestling business. It wasn't long after his second stint in TNA ended that Bill realized something. "Behrens then started having more interaction with promoters across independent wrestling, and decided his way to keep making a living in the business was as an agent. Figuring his talent was helping develop talent instead of actually booking or promoting it, he started putting wrestlers in positions to succeed across independent promotions." So to has that Bill has been able to do everything that has to do with wrestling other then getting in the ring is an understatement and honestly shows the dedication Bill has to this great sport.
