...I figured I could kill two bird with one stone by both getting it started again AND giving a cheap plug.

Okay so some of you know that I'm a writer and editor for former Fox Sports' affiliated site, Powerwrestling.com. The thing I don't like about the site is that it often goes overlooked as one of the 'IWC' sites for one reason or another, despite the fact that our hit counts are in the same ballpark as a lot of recognised sites. The reason for this is probably due to our less 'smarky' fanbase and how, as one of our writers put it, 'we're more of a site that weans marks onto the net scene, whereas the like of 411 is complete smark city'.

Now I'm happy with the amount of readers and exposure I have. Sure I could always have more and the feedback has a propensity to suck because half our readers haven't figured out the intricacies of Hotmail yet, and the other half are a lazy pack of sods, but what I don't like about the lack of recognition is the absence of criticism and praise for our site other than the odd 'Ure site ROOLZ/SUX!' emails we get in.

SO, if CRZ and Guru Zim will do me the courtesy of seeing this thread as more than just a cheap plug, I'd like to get YOUR opinion on the site. Please take time to check out our columnists (may I recommend Ian Goldsworthy and Jeff Wolf in particular, of course you could also check out my archives if you wish...), our news reports (headed by yours truly) and any other of our range of facilities and offer up some constructive criticism on what you enjoy and what you would like to see improved. Anything CONSTRUCTIVE is much appreciated and thanks to all in advance.

I've been to PowerWrestling over the years, infact I used to write there at one time. It's a decent site in the way that it is nicely designed and that it has a lot of content. The main reason why I don't visit there regularly is because the owners/editors of the site, Kev and Bill (I think?) are too full of themselves and are too self important for no reason.

Watson is actually veeerrrrry easy going now, and the great news is that Kev recently left. Not to sound like too much of a shill for the site, but Kev's replacement, Carl Walsh, working with Watson has made things get done a lot quicker and the whole place has been run a lot smoother as of recent.

You're dead on about Kev though, the guy deleted my @pw.com email addy because I jokingly called him 'lazy' in a show report once and single handedly made me apply to 411 for a spot once, but PW's been a pleasure to write and do work for in general since he's left.

If it's of any interest to you, you can read the thread where a lot of the community rip him to shreds after he announced his departure here if you wish.
