PWHS Means to Me...
Before we get into "What PWHS Means To Me", all of us here at PWHS need to say a big thank you to everyone who supports both the group and the website. Whether you have been with us from the beginning or just a few weeks it all helps and any kind of support is always appreciated. If you've ever posted in the group, shared website pages, bought the t-shirt, donated to help with website costs, simply told a friend to check us out or anything else thank you. People liking stuff and commenting in the group is the very foundation of what the group is, but those little extra things provide more help than you may realize. If not for the impact they have on the groups growth. Then the reassurance and motivation it gives us that we'e doing something right. Especially early on those little things really spurred us all on when things were more unsure. Even now though, it's still so motivating to see the support from you all.
The PWHS team consists of: Greg Skelley, Jimmy Wheeler, Terry Kent, Mike Steele, H.K. Schwarz, Jay Boutwell, Barry Rose, Harry Grover, Curtis Tompkins & Brian "Bubba" Edwards.
On behalf of myself (Jimmy), Greg and Terry. We would like to also specifically thank the rest of the PWHS team for understanding our goal and helping us to achieve it on daily basis. Also, a huge thank you today to the people who have contributed to the website over the last twelve months. They are: Dr. Mike Lano, Scott Teal, Hisaharu Tanabe, Phil Lions, NJPW Gaijin Eric, Austin Porche, Kris Levin, Roy Lucier and Bob Colling.
A special thank you must go to Julie Hankinson, formerly of "Comprehensive History of Pro-Wrestling". Thank you for having enough faith in PWHS to choose us as the ones to continue archiving your excellent work.
Another special thank you must go to Ronald Großpietsch. Like Julie he thankfully saw potential in what we do. Since then he has kept a constant flow of European Tournament Research for the website. Thank you for sharing your continued research and opening up a world of pro-wrestling that otherwise would have gone for the most part neglected.
And last, but certainly not least. John-Paul Volino was actually going to take part in "What Does PWHS Mean To Me". It seemed fitting given his constant help in the group and he had written several articles for this website. As you'll be aware from our tribute on the homepage, John-Paul sadly passed away and we just wanted one last time. Thank you and let your passion for wrestling live on through your writing. R.I.P.

"Happy One Year Anniversary" is stated in the top banner! And what a year it has been for the society in general and especially the website. The content has grown quicker than we ever imagined it would thanks to the valuable contributions of those mentioned. It looks as though the coming year is going to keep up that pace as we look for ways to turn it up yet another notch.
In honor of that we decided to take a moment to reflect and put into words exactly what PWHS means to us as individuals. Apparently, it was a lot easier for some than others to put into words. So, without any further ado, I'll stop typing and leave you in the "capable hands" of...
