Hey yo,

Howdy, everyone, I have bought WrestlingSmarks.com. I want to start by saying I know I'm coming into an already established community and I'm not looking to ruffle any feathers. Obviously a few tweaks here and there will be needed, but I plan to take plenty of input from you, the members and staff of Smarks, before making too many radical changes. That said...

I'm Brandon, I am almost 30 years old, and I manage a gas station and convenience store in New Hampshire. I've had a passion for Professional Wrestling for as long as I can remember. I used to watch early Royal Rumbles and root for the Big Boss Man as a little tyke. As I grew up I became a bigger fan of WCW and ECW for their more adult oriented stories. This was before the Attitude Era and even then, I was a WCW die hard fan until the very end. I used to watch every product known to man, WWE, TNA, ROH, PWG, FIP, SHIMMER Women Athletes, but these days I mostly just keep up with WWE. I'm a big fan of the way WWE is run now that Triple H and Stephanie have more input on what goes on, especially the NXT brand. Some of my favorites wrestlers ever are CM Punk, AJ Styles, Seth Rollins, Scott Hall and Kevin Nash. I used to love TNA Wrestling before all the show changes and talent turn overs. I think I may have been the last person jump off that sinking ship... :lmao

I've spent the past few years trying to build an internet presence and I'm always open to learning new things. Even after six years I'm still learning everything there is about managing and building forums, and that is especially true for Wrestlingsmarks. What works elsewhere won't necessarily work here and I am open finding out what those idiosyncrasies are. I am here to be a wrestling smark first and foremost and I want nothing more than to see it thrive and be better than ever. Anything I can do to improve the experience here and integrate myself into your family, just let me know. I believe in full discourse and input from anyone. Don't be afraid to tell me what you think in public or grab my attention in a private message. I understand I am coming in as an outsider and I'm not looking to alienate anyone who's been here for the long haul. This will be our home moving forward and I'll do whatever I can to make this transition as smooth as possible.

I also own and run a few other projects, mostly wrestling related, and at the moment there are no plans to intertwine them. I'm here to reestablish the WrestlingSmarks brand and I hope to do that with your guys help. I am on a learning curve and I'll need you guys to let me know what works, what doesn't, and what makes Smarks what it is.

I know there have been quite a few management changes over the last few years, but I promise you I'll do the best I can for WrestlingSmarks and give everything I have to keep this thing alive and thriving.

If there's anything else you need or want to know about me, the future of WrestlingSmarks or just any comments in general, please share them. I am here to answer any questions or worries you may have. Thank you for reading my lengthy ramble.

Welcome Brandon and that was a good introduction. Like you I am very much an old school fan and sadly believe that Wrestling is pretty much dead now. So if you could balance the talk of the current product out with lots of old school stuff that would please me. I'm not so hot on this place as I once was, but maybe you can do something to change that. You have a tall order on your hands good luck.

Thanks for the response, good sir. I am very much a fan of the older product. Probably spend a good deal of my time watch the WWE Network, especially now that they have added a lot of the older Raws, Nitros and ECW on TNNs.

I will certainly do what I can to increase the presence of old school and general wrestling discussion. I would certainly enjoy that very much. Thank you for the warm welcome.

Now we have someone to kill that bot account of Twitchys and stop spamming videogame stories.

A million times this, I might even be tempted to come back and start posting if that happens. Also, CHATBOX.

I take it you guys don't like Ultimate? ;)

If it means means getting you back here, that's definitely something I will look at.

What's wrong with the chatbox?

It's just a stupid bot account that was created that posts the most pointless shit.

I don't see a chatbox.

Gotcha. I'll see where he set it up and disable it.

It appears that it wasn't coded on the main style, but does show up on the Dark Style. I'll fix it.

Haven't really been an active member, stopped watching wrestling consistently so couldn't contribute to any discussions without being ignorant. Back into wrestling now, so I'll try to be more active.
