BR Writers Wanted: Throwing Out an Open Challenge

Matthew HesterSenior Writer IAugust 13, 2009

Hello, everyone. As always, thank you for taking the time to read some of my ramblings.

This isn’t an article on any wrestler or anything like that. What I would like to discuss is the future of the BR Wrestling Community. As I am sure most of you know, Shane has addressed the BR community.

I’m not here to discuss any other sites or if we should have another CL. Shane is doing a great job as far as I am concerned. What I would like to discuss is the lack of diversity in the reads.

I would also like to throw out some challenges out there to anyone who would like to broaden their horizons.

I say this for a couple reasons. For starters we have some really talented writers on here who I think can do so much better. Look at me, I’m a subpar writer and I am sixth on the list as far as best writers.

I know just from reading some of the work out there, that there are much better writers then me!

Secondly, I would like to mention something that Shane mentioned before. We need this section to be more diversified with its writing. It’s cool if you want to write about the WWE.

I myself write about it often, that being said it would be nice to see other stuff. There are a lot of great wrestlers and promotions out there.

I know Shane isn’t going to do this, but I would like to continue the tradition of posting suggestions on my board. It isn’t a required or anything, it will just be up there for some writers looking for ideas.

I would like to just throw out a few open challenges for all of you if I may.

As it stands now we have plenty of Raw and TNA recaps. What I would like to see is for someone to do weekly recaps for the ROH. It is a great promotion that deserves a little more spotlight on here.

I would also like to see me more independent reports. I and three other writers or doing weekly spotlights in Indy wrestlers, but it would also be nice to see detailed results posted for the Indy shows in your areas.

My last idea I want to see get done is a BR power ratings. It would require all the writers involved to vote monthly on the rakings of today’s wrestlers.

I see them in many magazines and it seems to be a fan favorite. I think something like this could do some real good for the wrestling section.

I will be posting more ideas on my board in the next day or two. Please feel free to come by and check it out. If you don’t like my ideas that is fine, but it can't hurt to take a look at them.

We are a fantastic wrestling community that shares a love for a great "sport." I think that there is no reason why we can’t be the best source for wrestling news and reads.

I wish all of you a pleasant and wonderful goodnight.

As always, have a great day and God bless.
