By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet) launched on February 11, 2008. At the time, I didn’t know that the site would last 14 weeks let alone 14 years. I can’t say thank you enough to our staff members Jake Barnett, John Moore, Colin McGuire, Will Pruett, Briar Starr, Laurence Gibbons, and Rich Bailin, as well as all of our past staffers and contributors. A big thanks to those who handle the technical side of the business (yes, even you, server hamster). As always, thank you to my longtime partner Christina for putting up with all of the long hours, the evening television shows, the lost weekends, and just for putting up with me for 24 years as of this coming Monday. I am truly blessed. Last and certainly not least, thanks to all of you for supporting this website. I truly appreciate it.
