listed in alphabetical order by catagories

Table of Contents


Wrestling Journalism

  • DDT Digest
  • Bill Milano's excellent site for wrestling news and views. Bill also runs the Arn Anderson web site and was instrumental in producing Arn's biography, "Arn Anderson 4 Ever: A Look Behind the Curtain"

  • The Independent Insider
  • "The Independent Insider is THE original member of the Hook Up!" So says the tag line on the main page of this comprehensive indie promotion news source. News from several such promotions along with pictures of the action, editorial comment, links to independent promotional web sites, and of special interest to Solie's readers - the Insider Classics section which brings us up to date concerning the participation of legendary wrestlers such as Ronnie Garvin and Boogie Woogie Man Jimmy Valiant.

  • Japanese Womens Wrestling
  • This site is designed to keep everyone up to date with the Japanese womens wrestling scene. Match results, current title holders and profiles of women wrestlers highlight this comprehensive site.

  • The Wresling Booking Sheet
  • The Booking Sheet was an online professional wrestling newsletter which published creative ideas, "booking plans", for different scenarios in WCW, ECW and the WWF. While hardly great literature, The Booking Sheet was entertaining in its own right. Eventually, when my time grew scarcer and WCW only provided entertainment of the train wreck sort, the newsletter died. In the years since the wrestling business itself has grown less and less entertaining, a prime reason for the plummeting revenues and the survival of only one major wrestling company in the United States.

  • The Wrestling Truth
  • WT covers every piece of WWE news and every other story related to Pro Wrestling in as much detail and in as high quality as they can. They go to great lengths to authenticate the wrestling news and wrestling rumors posted on their site, visiting multiple sources and by doing their own research.

  • USA Independent Wrestling
  • A very complete site featuring news and commentary regarding the Indie Wrestling scene. Includes indie show reports and results, personalities, a message board, links, columns, indie tapes for sale, interviews and more.

  • Wrestling.com
  • Edited by Ross Marshal - formerly of the Ringside Insider, and Blake Norton who also edits the current version of the TBR newsletter.

There are People who think they are WRESTLERS but have never been in a Pro Wrestling Match on TV. Before you pick a Wrestling School and a Coach, know who they are or check their background. Don't trust a web page, anyone can put a web page up. Check books for title holders, video tapes, talk to wrestling fans see if they have ever heard of that particular Wrestler. Know your Coach!" So says Brooks, who ought to know. "One last WARNING don't give your money to a school or coach that is not certifide to train you in Pro Wrestling. He can only teach you Pro Wresting if he was a Pro Wrestler." There is no doubt that Killer Brooks is a pro-wrestler, and a very famous one at that!
