Wrestling With Optimism #2 - The History of WWE.com Anniversary Special

February 27, 2015

Happy birthday to...


Ring of Honor!

The WWE Network!

This week, the Optimism is back as Brad Stutts and Dan McGinn have an in-depth conversation with Graham Cawthon about the origins of the website in February 2002, the state of pro wrestling on the internet at that time, legends that found the site early on, and how the site has grown into a community of wrestling fans (including, years ago, Scott & JR of The Place to Be).

They also talk sifting through rumors and misinformation, shoot interviews, newspaper clippings, ring results, interviews, fan photos, books, T-shirts, Graham's favorite things, and what the future of the site has in store.

For the next month, TheHistoryofWWE.com is celebrating the big 1-3 with a Pro Wrestling Tees T-shirt contest. Click here for details: http://on.fb.me/1G0F96n
