WANT TO BE A PWO CO-FOUNDER? Calling All Wrestling Fan Engineers, Marketers, and Entrepreneurs!

If I have learned anything at all, it's that the vision I have for Pro Wrestling Only will never be achieved if I continue operating this as a one-man show. I have quite a few great ideas for how to make the site rock, but having the idea and having the skills to execute it are two different things. That's where help come in.  I am looking for two CO-FOUNDERS to join me in getting Pro Wrestling Only off the ground. In exchange, you'll each get 25% ownership of the site. In the future, you c

BIOGRAPHY: Eugen Sandow, late 19th-early 20th century pro wrestler and "father of bodybuilding"

The Prussia-born Friedrich Wilhelm Müller (Eugen Sandow, 1867-1925) was an iconic professional wrestler, nude model, and bodybuilder during the late 19th and early 20th century, an era during which the three industries had significant overlap as part of what at the time was called "physical culture". Heralded as the "Father of Bodybuilding", Eugen Sandow was a groundbreaking figure who established and published training methods still used by professionals today. He is largely credited with popul

THE FEUD: Atlantis vs Villano III

In light of the sad passing of wrestling legend Villano III, we thought it might be a good idea to put together a YouTube playlist that shows the buildup and fallout from the most famous match of his career: the mask match against Atlantis from March 17, 2000. We have curated this playlist for you and hope you enjoy it.  Last year, a group of us walked through the week-to-week TV of this feud. The matches, all of which are on the above-linked playlist, are also listed below with links to th

MATCH REVIEW: Daniel Bryan vs The Miz (08-19-18)

Daniel Bryan vs The Miz WWE Summerslam PPV August 19, 2018 Brooklyn, New York 8.6 The match between The Miz and Daniel Bryan at Wrestlemania recalled a match that happened nearly 35 years earlier under similar circumstances. 1984, whether surprisingly or not, was a real slump of a year for Jim Crockett Promotions. After the overwhelming success of Starrcade '83, perhaps they had nowhere to go but down. It didn't help that they lost so many top stars to the WWF, including Rod

HELP WANTED: It's All About The Gaming

If you've ever wanted to write video game reviews, PWO might be the place for you. We're looking for at least one writer to review both new and classic pro wrestling-themed video games for all consoles. This also includes mobile and PC games. If you're interested, send at least one sample review my way. Gaming is not really my forte, so I don't have a format in mind, but I'd prefer to get an idea not just of your writing style, but what you think is the best way to actually structure a game revi

Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About PWO Database Plus

With the infrastructure for PWO Database Plus more or less established, I thought this was a good time to share both my ultimate vision and an explanation of the layout. What follows is a description of what type of information you'll be able to find in each section, and guidance on how you can directly engage the content as it's added. Introduction When most of us think of a database, we think of something that we access more than we think of something with which we interact. It's one

SHOW REVIEW: Starrcade '83: A Flair For The Gold

16 months before the first Wrestlemania, Jim Crockett Promotions decided to go big, broadcasting Starrcade '83: A Flair For The Gold on closed circuit in eight states and flying in talent from the Puerto Rico and Florida territories to really give this the ultimate supercard feel. One could argue the first Starrcade as the night wrestling stopped being what it was and started being what it is, since from here on, the biggest and most notable shows were delivered to a much broader audience than j

FREE MATCH: Jerry Lawler vs Kevin Thorn (07-06-18)

YouTube user FanCam Guy has uploaded a new Jerry Lawler match to his channel from Memphis Redbirds Wrestling Night on July 6. Lawler's opponent is Kevin Thorn, formerly Mordecai in WWE.

If you're a fan of Lawler, this channel has plenty of under-the-radar matches featuring Lawler and other Memphis talent that you might find interesting. Let us know your thoughts on this or anything else on this channel

Pretty good camerawork considering that it was shot via smartphone in the audience. You can watch it below. Let us know what you think! UPDATE Reader Wahoo's Leg pointed out that

NEW STREAMING: Best of Sherri Martel in SSW

Beau James has recently launched the Southern States Wrestling network on Pivotshare, which should be a nice addition of some classic pro wrestling many of us haven't seen. One of the most recent additions that is likely well worth checking out is a Best of Sherri Martel in SSW video, which includes footage of her both wrestling and managing and includes her induction in the East Tennessee Hall of Fame. Sherri is most remembered for her run as a WWF manager from 1989-1993, first paired with

NEW MATCH: AJ Styles & Daniel Bryan vs Samoa Joe & The Miz (WWE Summerslam Heatwave Tour 07-16-18, Reading, PA)

The incomparable Master of Muppets has added a match to his YouTube channel from the house show on Monday night (July 16) in Reading, PA. The match sees AJ Styles team with Daniel Bryan against Samoa Joe and The Miz as part of the awkwardly-named Summerslam Heatwave Tour. The camera quality isn't great in this particular case, but if you can tough it out, it's a good chance to see Bryan and Miz opposite each other -- a matchup that has evaded us on television since Bryan's spring return and will
