Joel Starr is currently employed as the color commentator for the popular wrestling promotion, CWF.

Early Life

Born Jonathan Bartleby, Joel Starr adopted his pseudonym from one of his favorite professional wrestlers, Joel "The Shooting Star" Johnson. His parents were extremely abusive towards Joel, and beat him frequently as a young boy. When Joel got fed up with their bullying ways, he trained for hours upon hours in the high school exercise room. The next time his father laid his hands on his son, Joel broke his arm in four places and gave him a severe concussion. To this day, Joel's father has a speech impediment.

Joel fled his home immediately following this incident, and ended up in Cleveland, Ohio, where he trained with a local promotion. For twenty years, Joel wrestled in various small-time businesses in order to make a living. In an ironic twist, in the middle of April, 1987, Joel suffered a traumatic head injury. However, he was scheduled to wrestle the next day, and did so, suffering another injury. He was diagnosed later with post-concussion syndrome, which ultimately ended his career. From then on, Joel dedicated himself to calling matches, and was paired with Greg Harris for the original CWF. Like Harris, Starr went into retirement after the original promotion closed down, only to come back at the request of new owner Anthony Romeri.
