Solie's Wrestling Newsletter Archives

Featuring

The Tuesday Morning Report

Click here for the listings.

753 editions of Solie's Wrestling Newsletter were published, originally twice a week and then, later, once a week every Tuesday from May of 1996 until November of 2003. It featured House Show Reports from Readers, columns by Solie's contributers like John Cross' Crossface Connection, Wrestling Historians Ervin Griffin, Jr. and Matt Benaka, great articles by Ric Drasin, Joe Crowe, Jeff Yelton, "Wild Bill" Rawlings, Len B and several others, All Pro Wrestling News by Jermz, Solie's Classic Reprints historical pieces from the WAWLI Papers, Jeremy Hartley's exclusive interviews with wrestling legends such as Lou Thesz, Ricky Steamboat, Buddy Landell, Bob Blackburn, Les Thatcher, Larry Zbyzko, Ted DiBiasi and even Gordon Solie himself - plus my own topical rants.

It represents a blow-by-blow history of the decline and fall of the pro-wrestling business during those years.

Thank you all so much for your kind comments and continued interest.
