About Ringside Intel 

Ringside Intel Origins

Ringside Intel origins run deep in the arena of combat sports. Bringing together sports brands and journalists with decades of pro wrestling and MMA news, analysis, and insights. Backed by the history and expertise of brands like WrestleNewz, Caged Insider, MMA Frenzy, Fightline, and more, Ringside Intel can now rise as the ultimate source for fans of combat sports and wrestling.

Ringside Intel re-launched in 2023 under a joint partnership between Intermarkets and The Publisher Desk. Intermarkets delivered the brand expertise while The Publisher Desk brought their monetization and technology know-how. 

In November 2023, The Publisher Desk fully acquired Ringside Intel with one mission: to bring fans closer to the combat sports they love with in-depth coverage, breaking news, and expert analysis.

Ringside Intel is funded by The Publisher Desk via ads and where noted in articles by affiliate links. Find out more about The Publisher Desk

Joe Lisnow

The lineage of pro wrestling dates back centuries, tying the world together through the art of storytelling. After nearly 30 years of watching, now Joe has the chance to report the news about men and women competing inside a 20-foot by 20-foot ring. Joe is a journalism professor and the Wrestling Editor here at Ringside Intel.

Jason Burgos

After getting his journalism degree, Jason ventured into the world of MMA contributing to sites like MMA Sucka and Sherdog before assuming the role of managing editor for MixedMartialArts.com. Jason has done countless video interviews with stars and influential figures from multiple sports and has co-hosted several podcasts. Jason is currently an editor for Sportsnaut as well as our MMA Editor here at Ringside Intel, and has a degree in journalism.

Dana Becker

The world of MMA is one of the few sports that brings together people from all walks of life. I try my best to tell those stories and also present breaking news to the masses.

John Deegan

Introduced to professional wrestling in the 1980’s thanks to Superstars and Saturday Night’s Main Event, John’s passion for the medium was reborn thanks to ECW in the 90’s. A former in-ring “talent” with a career 0-2 record, he finds it more rewarding, and far less painful, to write about wrestling now.

Anthony Walker

Ant Walker is a native of the Washington DC area that now lives in Los Angeles. He has been in combat sports media since 2015 with work published on Sherdog, MMA On Point, The Body Lock, and My MMA News.

Dorathy Gass

Dorathy’s been an avid fan of the WWE and sports entertainment since she was a small child. She attended her first live at the age of three. As a full-time freelancer, she not only writes about professional wrestling on WrestleNewz but on other topics including health, wellness, and parenting.

Ringside Intel Future

Our goal is to bring fans closer to the sports they love with in-depth coverage, breaking news, and expert analysis. To do this, we’ll be looking to get more Ringside Intel scoops and get exclusive interviews from the world of combat sports and wrestling. 

Our content will always remain reliable, engaging, and authoritative. So check back often to join us ringside for a journey into the heart of the action.
