Austin Boykins is an associate editor with an interest in sneakers and music. On the weekends and during his spare time you can find Austin screaming at the TV while he's playing 2K or stuffing his face with shrimp. Otherwise, he's definitely binge watching classic wrestling matches from the "Attitude Era."
