The early days of Slam Wrestling, which launched in 1997, didn’t have much to do with video. Everyone was on dial-up, and our clips that we posted were hosted in a separate place and were tiny and short. And then our site never got re-designed to take advantage of multimedia, especially as widespread broadband access — and especially YouTube — came along. So, here’s an attempt to remedy that. We’ll be posting our original content, and links to interviews with our contributors. Watch on!
