NEWS, HISTORY AND ANALYSIS THAT MATTER TO THE SERIOUS WRESTLING FAN
A MESSAGE FROM THE EDITOR
Published Thursday, November 10, 2005 by DEVELOPMENTALspotlight | E-mail this post
Welcome to The Pro-Wrestling Chronicle, the new home of news, history and analysis for the serious wrestling fan. It is our mission to deliver only the news and coverage that interests those who thrive to dig deeper into the wrestling business. This site was born of necessity. It is difficult to find coverage of professional wrestling in 2005 that appeals to the true fan and student of professional wrestling, and that isn't bogged down with negativity and bias. Our mission is to take the latest news from all of the major credible sources on a specific daily story and tie it all together in the most complete update available. Our premiere update that speaks on the status of Christian for example draws from two hotlines, two newsletters, three websites and wwe.com, and puts the pieces together in a few paragraphs to form the most complete coverage of the story available. No punch-lines, no cuteness, just the information that the dedicated wrestling fan wants. Our mission is to make our news coverage complete enough to be the only source of wrestling news one needs if they so choose. We will strive for coverage with the maturity of a newsletter. We will always credit the source of our news, and we highly encourage you to support The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, The Pro-Wrestling Torch Newsletter and the PWInsider Elite area. We will not speculate on news, and if the source of our news does, we will report it as such. We will avoid bias. We will not resort to knee-jerk reaction or sensationalism. The black and white design of our site exists for a reason. We are not a flashy presence, our mission is to let our content speak for itself. In addition to current news, each week we will offer a glimpse back in time with the stories that were breaking in the wrestling world 5, 10 and 15 years ago. To maintain authenticity to the period, our news will be presented as it was at the time. If Tim Horner was scheduled to win the NWA World Heavyweight Championship in mid 1990 (and obviously he wasn't), we will report that Tim Horner is scheduled to win the NWA Title in mid 1990.
Television reviews and star ratings will not be a focus here. The stories, people and events that make the wrestling industry turn, and the business side of the sport as a whole will be the dominant focus, and if three words best describe our interests, they would be the bigger picture. With the launch of the site we have part 1 of an interview with Vince McMahon conducted by Playboy Magazine, where the most powerful man in American wrestling recounts being beaten with a wrench by his step-father for attempting to stop him from beating his mother, only to have his mother sexually assault him as well. While other sites call Vince McMahon twisted, we want to know why he is the way that he is. If Lanny Poffo says something interesting about wrestling twenty years ago, we'll print it. Simply put, The Pro-Wrestling Chronicle is for the wrestling fan who is never content with only examining the surface of a story, for the wrestling fan who can never take in enough information on the industry, and for the wrestling fan who wants more information and less opinion.
Thank you for your interest in The Pro-Wrestling Chronicle. Please take some time to look around, and please bookmark the site and tell a friend if you enjoy what you see. The Pro-Wrestling Chronicle is still very much a work in progress, and invites any and all comments and criticism. Together, we can look at wrestling the way it should be looked at, with the respect and passion worthy of all of those who sacrificed their livelihoods and bodies to keep our dream alive.
