The B/R Wrestling Community: Let's Keep This a Peaceful Place!

Matthew HesterSenior Writer ISeptember 27, 2009

Hello, everyone. As always, I would like to thank all of you for spending a few minutes with me today.

Let me first start of by saying that the BR wrestling community is a wonderful place. It is a place where wrestling fans can share their love for the fine art of pro wrestling.

You have men and women of all ages writing articles and discussing wrestling with each other.

To me that is the cornerstone of what makes this community great. We also get to see an array of different writers on here. Some use BR as a stepping stone, while others just write on here for the love if it.

No matter what your reason for you writing on here is. It is great to see so many people showing their love for wrestling. It gives me a lot of hope that the sport is alive and well.

I am going to be honest with everyone, though. I can’t help but worry a little about the way things have been on here lately. It seems like we are starting to see more ugliness and bitterness poke its head out.

At first this ugliness would only pop up once in a while. A few uncalled for comments here and there. I have also noticed more and more arguing between writers on here.

While this is to be expected, it seems that things are getting a little out of control. How are we supposed to stay strong as a community when we have our top writers constantly going at it like dogs?

To make matters worse, we have even dragged other sites into the argument. For reasons unbeknownst to me, we have writers on BR, hating on the writers for The Wrestling Daily.

It makes no sense to why this is even happening. The guys who founded the Wrestling Daily are all great writers. They decided to branch off on their own and start a site. I think that we should be happy for them.

It does no one any good to be upset by someone else’s success. We make our own success in life. It’s just a matter of grasping the bull by the horns and doing it. If anyone is upset for anyone’s success, they should only be upset with themselves.

All I want is what is best for the BR wrestling community. I couldn't care less what any other person or site is doing. We are a great community, and I would like to see it stay that way.

I will be branching out myself soon. That doesn’t mean that I am going to stop writing or posting here. In a way, we are a family: a family of wrestling fans that are passionate about the world of pro wrestling.

Isn’t that what this site is about anyways, all we are doing by fighting with each other is tearing the thread of the community. I would like to see all of this come to an end before it becomes a major problem.

I apologize if am coming off as trying to preach to all of you. I am just simply trying to keep peace amongst us all. Like I said before, this is a great community and I would like to see it grow and get better.

I would like to thank all of you for joining me today.

As always, have a safe and blessed day.
