Power Slam was probably the UK's best known wrestling magazine here in the UK. This week, it was announced that, after 20 years, it's ceasing publication.
It's strange to think that my primary monthly source of wrestling information is no more, but I wonder what this says more about the declining popularity of wrestling in general? We know it's been a long time since the hot streak of the Attitude years, but that little magazine had always manage to survive through the increasingly leaner times. It feels like another step towards the abyss for pro wrestling.
Am I being too dramatic? Anybody else on here ever read it?

I think it says more about the state of print magazines than it does about wrestling in general, especially since Power Slam started at a pretty bleak time in wrestling and lasted until now.
