After eight awesome months, I’m shutting The Pro Wrestling Nerd down for good. Ever since starting this site back in July I have seen my readership grow, my writing improve, and more importantly I have seen the way I take in wrestling grow and evolve. And with this growth it’s time to change gears and start something new. Next month my new site, Pro Wrestling Update, will launch and I couldn’t be more excited about it. Although still a one man operation at this point (I don’t accept free labor), Pro Wrestling Update presents a shift in the way I’m going to do things; this site represents wrestling journalism and commentary the way I want to see it done: without all the tabloid gossip, spoiler reporting, and the dirtier aspects of the industry that continue to make the pro wrestling media irrelevant in many people’s eyes. At Pro Wrestling Update, you’ll still find news, recaps/reviews, features, all sorts of wrestling site staples but the news reporting will be relevant and will not rely on misleading headlines or female wrestlers in skimpy outfits for hits. Pro Wrestling Update is for the wrestling fan who wants to be informed and entertained without being insulted.
Right now I’m still working out the kinks, but make sure to bookmark Pro Wrestling Update for future reference. It’s just a landing page right now but the site is all but set to go live Wrestlemania 29 weekend. You can also follow me on Twitter for more site-related announcements (or general wrestling blather) and “like” the new PWUpdate Facebook page which will kick into gear once the site does. As for The Pro Wrestling Nerd…the site will stay up as long as WordPress (and the internet) exists so feel free to scope through the archives to get a handle on my writing style. Hopefully you’ll dig it and follow me over to my new digs.
The end is truly the beginning and I cannot be more thrilled.
