    The Big Four (as far as respect & actually covering the genre):
    IN ORDER
    1. www.f4wonline.com - The merged home of Dave Meltzer & Bryan Alvarez. A shitty designed website, but by far the best source for detailed info & audio. They also cover MMA in great detail as well

    2. www.pwinsider.com - They had their ups/downs mainly bec the owner is a complete dick & accepted spyware, etc. on his site (in ads). Mike Johnson his main reporter breaks a lot of news, but in his rush to beat out others, he post a lot of wrong info. If you go, use ad-blocker, etc

    3. www.prowrestling.net - Jason Powell used to be #2 guy at Torch, but spun off with his own website. A good site & JP doesn't take himself seriously which is both good/bad

    4. www.pwtorch.com - Was a close #2 for years to Meltzer/Observer, but connections dried up & the main guy (Wade Keller) goes into wacky conspiracy theories a lot



    Meltzer/Alvarez are by far the most accurate & reliable. They don't post until they feel something is as accurate as can be. On their forum, a lot will post that "so & so reported" & Dave will go into detail on what he knows & what he is waiting to find out. Recently Mike Johnson posted that Cena's injury was legit Mon on RAW & Meltzer pointed out they did the backstage dressing room bit before RAW went live so it was impossible.

    The other sites are copy/paste from those 4. A site like Wrestlezone is the worst bec the outright steal & say "I was told by a source", etc.

    For audio www.f4wonline.com can't be beat & bec I like both wrestling & MMA the membership there is well worth it

    What site(s) do you go to & enjoy & why?

    I haven't been there today. I can't go there on my notebook; it instantly crashes every time I try.

    This is the type of "reporting" I hate with wrestling



    That was from PWInsider, MJ says nothing, no names, etc.
    People come & go all the time in WWE & the next person that comes back, he will say "see"

    Not too much news but the guy has good recaps and previews. The previews are in the forums.

    I remember OO from over a decade ago
    I didnt even know they were still online

    If its the same guys/site, I agree with you
    They never tried to be anything more than they were and didnt make up newz or steal from others

    Good find

    I've followed them since the Monday night wars. The had a guy Micasa but he dropped out years ago. The guy that runs the site Rick Scaccia or something does a good preview before every show and either him or a guy that writes for IGN does a recap.

    They were onlineonslaught.com but he let the domain run out and became oowrestling.com. He got the original back now. He was actually paid by CBS for a while when wrestling was hot. They have a pretty active and knowledgable for wrestling board.

    This BS is why you shouldn't go to "Wrestlezone" & other BS sites

    Wight signed a new contract this past summer

    I don't trust any of them. Even Meltzer is often wrong. I just watch the show. 30 years of watching, you can tell what's really going on anyway.

    I once got a wrestling news site to post that Mick Foley's then-upcoming children's book was to be titled "Crackers for Breakfast." All I had to say was that my aunt worked for the publisher. I didn't even name the publisher and nobody ever followed up with me to see if I was full of crap or not. Then, that news was stolen and used by other sites without crediting the first stie or the name I used. Wrestlezone was one of the sites that stole the news and I just found a post on some old Yahoo message board where someone repeated the news and credited wrestlezone as the source. I didn't really expect to even find any reference to it when I googled it since it's been so long but I was curious to see if it was still up anywhere.

    Out of boredom I downloaded a Wade Keller (PWTorch) audio show & it was OK & Wade is near the top in reporters, but all it did was remind me why I shouldn't slum to other sites
    He had no idea of Dolph & his mania match (this was after SD tapings) & then said the dumbest thing about Lesnar/HHH
    He said everyone thinks Lesnar will request MMA rules, but MMA rules are the same as WWE .............................
    I hate to imitate Miz, but ....... REALLY?

    WWE allows you to leave the ring - MMA does not
    WWE has no rounds - MMA does
    WWE allows pinfalls - MMA does not
    & many more
