>> SCHERER, WOODWARD, JOHNSON AND MCGRATH LEAVE 1WRESTLING TO START PWINSIDER.COMBy Dave Scherer, PWInsider.com
* The following is a paid advertisement *
At the end of January 2004, Buck Woodward, Jess McGrath, Mike Johnson
and myself left our former home at 1Wrestling.com and formed our own
new website: www.PWInsider.com.
Over the past month, I have been asked what happened to lead to our
leaving our former home. Here is the quick version of what transpired.
My contract with Bob Ryder and Joey Styles, the owners of my former
site, was coming to an end. After beginning talks to strike a new deal,
it became obvious very quickly that we were on different pages and that
I would be leaving the site. No matter how great the people are that
you work for, when you are employed by someone else, you have to abide
by their rules and when my five year contract came to an end, where I
wanted to take the site and where the owners wanted it to go were two
different places, so we amicably parted ways.
I had an inkling for the past year or so that it would come to that, so
I had www.PWInsider.com designed and ready to go in case it I left.
After notifying the staff that I was leaving, I was honored to find out
that Jess, Mike and Buck all wanted to join the new site. On January
27th, we opened for business and the response has been amazing. We have
been going strong ever since, working as much as is needed to deliver
all of the top quality content that you have come to expect from us.
PWInsider.com has all of the columns and features you have probably read
in the past, from my Daily Lariat news report, to Buck's PPV coverage
and reporting, to Mike's outstanding work covering the business
overseas, and of course Jess' amazing work on the independent scene. We
have also set a standard of reporting almost all of the breaking news in
the professional wrestling business around the clock at PWInsider.com,
in a completely impartial and independent manner.
For the fan that wants more from their wrestling sites, we have started
the PWInsider.com Elite Service at our new home. Elite members of this
website will get access to:
- Our exclusive weekly newsletter, which covers everything that went on
in the business over the past seven days.
- Our Elite only message board area.
- Weekly audio shows featuring the duos of Mike Johnson-Jess McGrath and
Dave Scherer-Buck Woodward.
- Audio hotlines from the four charter members of the staff of
- Lightning fast ad-free access to the site.

And more content currently in the planning stages.
You can even try all of our Elite content for three days, ABSOLUTELY
