My suscription to the Observer is running out after next week. I'm trying to decide whether to re up with Dave or try out the Torch. What should I do?

I get the Torch, have for 5 years. I'm very happy with it. I've never got the Observer, so I can't speak for how that is.

Last month, I put myself down to try a free issue of the Torch. I wasn't impressed. Most of the news they report can be found right on their website, and most of THAT was lifted from Whatever else is left are their long opinion pieces and roundtables commentaries on pay per views, and I learned after a few minutes of reading that I personally couldn't care less what Powell, Keller, Mitchell et all have to say. Nor am I interested in them teaching me what and how to think about wrestling. We all watch the same shows. My brain works just fine on its own.

I AM glad they finally stopped sending me their VIP emails. Those got really annoying too.

So in conclusion, I think that if you regularly check the Observer and Torch website for news, you pretty much get the gist of whatever they have to offer. Or you can pay cash money to get ALL they have to offer, but I'd say less is definitely more in the long run.

Keep with the Observer. The Torch has been in a downward spiral of quality for over a year now.

Give those choices, I'd keep the Observer (been a subscriber for more than a decade now).

I would also give a try to Alvarez' sheet. I got the sample package and do enjoy it, as there are usually LOL moments in every issue (often involving Bob Sapp).

The Observer is (IMO) the best read around for pro-wrestling. The information put in there is incredible. I like the Torch, but it has nothing on Meltzer's sheet.

I would also like to agree with odessasteps and recommend Bryan Alverez' Figure Four Weekly Newsletter. HILARIOUS stuff. I guarantee that you will laugh like a madman each week when reading his Frank A. Gotch stuff. The price he asks for is pretty high (and they keep going up), but it's worth it.
