The Cauliflower Alley Club announced today that Steve Johnson has been named the club's 2022 James C. Melby Historian Award honoree.
The Virginia based writer and editor has been the author of articles on business, politics and sports in dozens of newspapers and magazines and has won more than 20 regional and national awards for his reporting on a variety of stories. It is for his renowned research and work chronicling the wrestling industry, often in tandem with 2021 Melby honoree Greg Oliver, that Mr. Johnson will receive this honor. Mr. Johnson wrote his first wrestling magazine article in 1973 and is a frequent contributor to the SLAM Wrestling website. Additionally, in tandem with Greg Oliver, Steve has co-authored the Pro-Wrestling Hall of Fame series of books focusing on tag teams, heels, heroes, icons and storytellers.
The Cauliflower Alley Club extends our sincerest congratulations to Steve on his selection to receive this tremendous honor and we look forward to seeing him, together with all of our 2022 honorees and all reunion attendees this September in Las Vegas.
