Thank you for your interest in WrestlingNewsWorld.com. Many people have asked about the history of WrestlingNewsWorld.com, here is a brief overview:
Wrestling News World was founded in 1999 as UltimateWWF.com by George Patton, a professional wrestling fan turned Internet wrestling reporter from Ireland. The site achieved a phenomenal amount of success as one of the most popular sources online for professional wrestling news. In 2002 George Patton moved the website to WrestlingNewsWorld.com following trademark issues with what was formerly known as the World Wrestling Federation.
In February 2003 site owner George Patton decided to pursue other interests and put the website on the market for sale. Gray Internet Technologies, a Limited Liability Company out of the state of West Virginia, purchased the rights to the WrestlingNewsWorld.com domain name in February 2003 but did not retain any of the site's original content. Brothers Richard and Ryan Gray revamped the website with an all new site design and direction. While the site had achieved a substantial amount of success under Patton, the entire mission of WrestlingNewsWorld.com was changed to a new modern direction under the new ownership.
Under the new direction and ownership, the popularity of WNW soared to new levels, quickly establishing itself as one of the most popular independently owned professional wrestling news websites on the Internet. Throughout the years WNW has added exclusive and interactive features including the first professional wrestling news website to feature weekly blogs where fans can leave direct feedback on opinion based editorials. In June 2011, Ryan Gray stepped down from WNW and handed his duties over to Richard Gray.
In February 2017, Brad Cohen purchased WrestlingNewsWorld.com and started revamping the site by bringing in fresh ideas and talent. WrestlingNewsWorld.com went to WrestleMania 33 with promotions, pictures and live videos on site as things happened in Orlando, FL. New life and excitement started to flow through WNW, the writers, and the readers, making it more fun and exciting for all involved.
Today WrestlingNewsWorld.com proudly serves nearly 1,000,000 unique visitors monthly. WrestlingNewsWorld.com is recognized throughout the entire professional wrestling industry as one of the top sources for accurate and up-to-date professional wrestling news, rumors, and information.
