Forums should always have a place. I have never been a fan of posting in Facebook groups as you can't keep up with your past and I couldn't be arsed with private messages from people unhappy with my views. Many years ago I tried bigger forums but hated the popups, the adverts, having to pay for extra features and places being too busy so you just become another name, take the time to make a post and come back a few hours later to dozens of replies in a topic, but nothing quoting you.

So after our proboard we started this place. It's just a hobby and we don't mind paying a monthly fee to keep it going and have never asked for people to chip in because that's not we are about. We like how clean it is. You won't ever get adware for example here, no silly adverts, no pop ups to close and rules are very relaxed because adults shouldn't need rules to know how to behave anyway.

Social media has really helped grow the fanbase and we get people from word of mouth because if you know wrestling fans, tell them about here. Others have come from other things such as John The Baptist seeing our Powerslam magazine advert and Tommy Rice joined after seeing our forum URL across the tight t shirt JJsGirl wore at a TNA show in Glasgow LOL

Yes that sure fire one day hall of famer Tommy Rice who may go down in history as the only member to join off the back of seeing the forum url scribbled across a set of fun bags

Like Adders I tried a few so called busier forums in the past, didn’t like them, you’re very much just a number there and the conversation doesn’t flow due to the rapid fire posting, a lot of good contributions in threads get completely ignored and you often get cliquey groups of posters who just chat amongst themselves in threads blanking everyone else.

I don’t like Facebook groups either, they lack the intimacy of a good forum as cheesy as that sounds. Social media has had a negative impact on the activity at a lot of forums.

I posted at Baz’s forum because activity here was at a all time low and as loyal as I’ve always been to here you can only take zero activity for so long and I wanted to chat Wrestling, it all worked out for the best as this place had a resurgence and everyone kissed and made up. Baz like many I think just fancied a crack at running his own place but in the end decided it wasn’t for him and came back. It may have ruffled a few feathers but really I don’t think he did anything wrong.
Baz was like Eric Bischoff in that he got his own place, took the top talent from here and was number one for a brief spell before everyone flocked back and his gaff closed its doors and everyone was absorbed back into the ranks here.

All in the past now and activity continues to improve here with some decent new members and the returns of some quality old school posters. It’s a much more mature vibe around here now which I enjoy.

R.I.P Powerslam.

Met some great people on here thanks to that mag. Seems like everyone grew up and got lives now though. Steph is on her second kid now, Grace got married, Fletch had a kid, even that little virgin runt Raven got himself a missus.

Still the greatest forum ever in its prime.

Yeah RIP Powerslam seconded, only wrestling rag I ever read every month.

Everyone has grown up for sure, I turn 40 at the end of this year for fucks sake! Raven was a spotty pre-pubescent when he first joined, he was probably only just discovering masturbation at that point who would have thought he would ever actually spend time with a real life naked woman.

So Steph is on her second sprog? Whatever happened to her she just completely vanished from the online world?

Fuck me I thought I were old reaching 30 you old cunt. She deleted her FB ages ago I think. She's married to a Chinese fella and literally just had her 2nd kid.

Baz - her name was 'Asuka' on here (not named after the wrestler)
