It’s the eighth installment looking back the PWI 500 magazines that have become a popular publication over the years. 1998 saw the WWF get a lead in the ratings war, while WCW was still highly popular. ECW continued to grow throughout the year, as well.

Unlike last year, the number one ranked wrestler is a toss up between a WCW wrestler and a WWF wrestler. There isn’t controversy attached to this years ranking.

Reminder, I don’t look at every wrestler in the magazine, but a full list of the rankings can be found HERE.

The grading period was from August 1st 1997 to August 31st, 1998. (more…)

It’s one of the first magazines I remember ever purchasing from Wegmans after hounding my mother to spend a measly $2.50 considering I was only six at the time. For the most part, magazines like the Wrestler were the only ways I kept up with wrestling. Aside from watching Livewire and the occasional Nitro, I didn’t actually watch much wrestling at such a young age.

Inside this magazine we find out the fear that is preventing the Steiner Brothers from competing in WCW or WWF. A preview for a match between Sting and Hulk Hogan that WILL HAPPEN! Plus, Dr. Yankeem bringing the Undertaker back from dead and the Heavenly Bodies having a bone to pick with Jim Cornette over the WWF Tag Team Championships. All that plus the usual good stuff from the Wrestler! Lets check it out! (more…)
