ABOUT THE ONSLAUGHT...

 

Online Onslaught isn't just a column title, any more...  now it's a website!

I can trace my roots back to 1992, when I found the newsgroup rec.sports.pro-wrestling, and began writing and debating about wrestling with the group of hardcores who populated the group.

But it wasn't until 1995 when I actually started keeping a schedule and started a bona fide newsletter.  "The News From Dayton" was made possible mostly due to the fact that Alex Marvez was slumming it in Dayton, OH, and provided unique content that nobody else on the internet had.  With Alex's content and my packaging, the NFD was pretty successful for about 2 and a half years, eventually morphing into a website (instead of just being a newsletter).

Once Alex moved on from Dayton, I'd managed to develop my own content, and re-branded my site as "Online Onslaught."  I was also lucky enough to be invited by Mike "Micasa" Samuda to form WrestleManiacs, which rapidly became one of the most successful independent wrestling websites anywhere.

We were so successful in our first year of business, actually, that SportsLine came sniffing around when they decided to get into the wrestling business.  WrestleManiacs and SportsLine (and WOW Magazine, apparently) eventually teamed up to create WrestleLine.

For another 2 and a half years, OO was a featured column on WrestleLine.  And then, in October 2001, WL was shut down for good due to SportsLine's floundering finances.  OO was without a home for all of 24 hours.

The launch of OnlineOnslaught.com was a slow process, but on December 1, 2001, the whole blasted thing was finally up and running, and at full speed.  I'm happy to be back in the saddle, and even happier to have some old pals along for the ride (along with some new faces that I think will really impress you).

My goal has not changed any in the years since I started:  I've just increased my scope.  Not only do I want to do a column that is factually accurate, insightful, and entertaining, but I want to provide other columns by other writers who supply the same thing.  

And most importantly, I never want to lose sight of the fact that we are FANS.  I don't cotton to the "wrestling journalist" label, and hope that you'll agree.  The people who publish soap opera guides aren't journalists, and neither are the people who are lucky enough to get to write about pro wrestling for an audience.

It's ridiculous that this job exists...  but if somebody's gonna do it, why not me?
