If you have a wrestling blog or visit one regularly, post the link here on this sticked thread. I know Bix has one. So do carlton st and CWHall.

I have enough bookmarks. Figured why not make a thread about blogs and have the "bookmarks" listed here on the board.

Besides the Bix blog, none of these match up to the greatness that was Mark Rickwalder.

I'm trying to make it a good mix of old and current topics - reviewing old shows from various territories I'm researching for results while at the same time keeping up with how Raw and Smackdown are doing.

Stumbled onto this online wrestling comic.
Click on Archives and scroll to the bottom of the page and follow it from the beginning. Kind of humorous in spots although I'm sure many here are already aware of this site.

If you aren't, enjoy!

I was shocked to see in Maple Leaf a program from 1971 with Dewey Robertson- didn't he go on to be the Missing Link?  Wow he must have been very old when he was using the Missing Link gimmick!

Wong Lee, I didn't realize you had joined the group.  I've really appreciated some of the L.A. results you've posted in the past on this board.  The California Classic Wrestling is a great group page and we're glad to know that you and the Clawmaster are aboard.  Enjoy.  :D

I've created a Facebook page as an online home for my research. I'll still be updating results thread here, though, it's the only place I have the territory results all together.

https://www.facebook.com/AmarilloWrestling

There's only the results document for 1977 on there at the moment, but I'll be adding 1969-1981 in the next few days.

Very little content. The 20th century cards he has up only show the main events. Maybe it will improve over time. He's really trying hard on the 19th Century stuff though.

Hope y'all don't mind a plug for "my" site:
Da' Wrestling Site

We've been around since 2007; doing all sorts of wrestling reviews. The current PPVs are usually posted shortly after the event. We're a small crew of different writers with different tastes, so it's not the same opinion or even writing style, over-and-over. Hopefully, you'll find something you like.

We're also on The Facebook,, if you're into the socializing with media thing:

I`ve got something for you to-day you might like. Countingthelights is a blog that nobody ever reads, yet it may have some of the finest writing I`ve ever seen. It hasn`t been uptated since 2015 but I just keep coming back. I think you may appreciate it:

http://countingthelights.com/?p=12776

You know how Ric Flair dropped the NWA World title to Jack Veneno in the Dominican Republic because he knew the crowd would riot if their guy lost? You get the idea that if Randy Orton goes to Kinshasa to defend against Super Angleouma, Vince will have a chicken sacrificing champion and wrestling will be banned in the U.S. for 100 years.

http://countingthelights.com/?p=12268

Sometimes, a match comes along that makes all the wrestling we watch worthwhile.This is not that match.“No one in the Orient Express is even really Asian!” yelled Noah.“Well, Virgil shouldn’t have to sell for a manager,” Sam replied.“Virgil is a manager, too. So he has to sell.” Noah fucking beat Sam with that.

http://countingthelights.com/?p=12679


8. Batten TwinsUp until last year I only thought these guys were bootleg macho man’s and worked for Kenny. Turns out they were in the Crocket Cup and I will admit had I known this fact back in the ‘90s I might have tried to be a little nicer but truth be told I still would hate them. My hate story was one at one DWF when these guys gave me a cassette tape to play their music. Granted tapes were still around but this was the time where people had actual CDs and you could burn your own on almost any computer for about $2 each. Anyways I put in the only side with a sticker and hit play. After about 3 minutes of them not coming out they both walked out together and came to my table like they were going to beat me up. They started screaming that I was playing the wrong song and that I was dead after the show. Well similar to Israel I don’t negotiate with terrorists or assholes so I did whatever any good DJ would do. I ejected their tape thru it in the ring at them and then turned off the mic so they would shut up and quit yelling at me. Ironically this was a deaf show so the music didn’t matter, but the hate lives on!
