I rather enjoy some of the columns on the site, but I thought this funny, in a story about the XPW...

"their roster pages go to Obsessed With Wrestling's profile pages, and it includes signed TNA and WWE talent, as well as wrestlers who are currently dead."

Well, be sure to let us know if the latter's status changes.

Even better, in the article title they call it "XPW" and the web address the give refers to it as "XWF". Now if I know my third rate national wrestling promotions (which I don't), XWF was the one with Henning, Sable, and others with Hogan behind the scenes, and XPW was the one with porn "moguls" Ron (?) Black and Lizzy Borden? Of course *anyone* can make a mistake, I suppose.

It's pretty obvious that it was just a typo. Easy enough to make, I guess.

What I found odd was that the letter from Colin Bowman on the main page didn't really say anything about the relaunch other than the following:

    Originally posted by Colin Bowman
    "When I parted company with the XWF, I never for one second envisaged that I would be sitting here 4 and a half years later writing an article for a newly relaunched and rebuilt web site dedicated to a 5-month period in wrestling history that changed the business … although not in the way we all hoped."


(Boldface emphasis mine)

So, to me, this says the company's not necessarily coming back, but that the website's going to act as a tribute to the company, which crashed and burned pretty quickly. Shrug.
