PWO Database Plus is coming along nicely! We have found a way to leverage our old Match Discussion Archive and the informed, thoughtful voices in our community by adding a one-stop shop for wrestling information. We hope you'll follow along as we continue building and expanding on this resource.
The newsreel archive is in progress. This will be a full archive of all of the pro wrestling newsreels, mostly from before the 1950s, that we know about, compiling information from the Moving Image Research Collection, Associated Press, MyFootage.com, Getty Images, and other newsreel databases in one searchable place. The newsreels from British Pathe before 1930 have been catalogued with the film numbers, official titles, and when possible, embedded video here!
While many of the clips are wrestling related but do not contain matches, in cases of actual matches, we've also added topics to the Matches section so that you can watch and share your thoughts. We also have threads for all pro wrestling footage that we know of before 1930 added to this section.
Stay tuned for more updates!
