We sincerely appreciate your interest in writing for Pro Wrestling Stories! We are thrilled that you’re interested in joining our team of passionate wrestling history enthusiasts. Your love for writing and professional wrestling is exactly what we’re looking for, and we can’t wait to embark on this journey with you.

Our Rich History

Pro Wrestling Stories has been a haven for wrestling aficionados since 2015. With over two million readers each month, our authors have become trusted sources of wrestling history and nostalgia. We’re not just a website; we’re a community of dedicated writers and readers worldwide who share a profound appreciation for the vast and great history of professional wrestling.

Inclusivity Matters

At Pro Wrestling Stories, we believe in the power of diverse voices. We welcome writers from all backgrounds, cultures, religions, and genders. Our commitment to inclusivity ensures that every perspective is not only heard but celebrated. Your unique experiences and insights will enrich our collective understanding of professional wrestling’s rich tapestry.

Writing Experience

You may be wondering if you need previous writing experience to contribute to Pro Wrestling Stories. The answer is no! While prior experience is not necessary, we do have high publication standards. We seek writers who are not only passionate about wrestling history but also display strong writing skills. Our dedicated team of editors will guide you through the writing process, providing constructive feedback to help you grow as a writer.

Topics We Love

When it comes to choosing your writing topics, you have creative freedom.

Our tales run the gamut from backstage stories to career retrospectives, interviews with legends, road stories, ribs, reliving the territories, or your favorite great angles, matches, and moments. We love list posts, too, but aim for impartiality by keeping them unbiased and free from personal opinions.

Pitch us an idea that moves and excites you and that you’re knowledgeable about, and once we greenlight it, prepare to dig in. We explore all aspects of the fascinating history of the wrestling business.

Verifiable Sources

Credibility is crucial to us. We only publish verified stories, so make sure to cite your sources when using direct quotes or referencing external information. Trustworthy primary sources, such as autobiographies, interviews, and reputable publications, are the backbone of our content.

No to Reviews and Previews

We take pride in being a hub for wrestling history and nostalgia. Therefore, we do not publish opinion pieces, previews, reviews, or articles focused on covering the best matches of the week. These topics are readily available on other reputable wrestling websites. Our niche is celebrating the past and offering unique insights into wrestling’s history.

Article Length

While there’s no strict word count requirement, articles between 1200 to 3000 words tend to resonate best with our online audience. What truly matters is that your content is comprehensive, balanced, and engaging.

No Deadlines

At Pro Wrestling Stories, we understand that life can be busy. That’s why we don’t impose deadlines on our writers. Write when your passion ignites and time allows. After all, wrestling history is timeless, and it’ll be there when you’re ready.

Submission Process

Submitting your work is simple. Draft your articles in a .docx file and send them to us via email. We’ll take care of the formatting. Senior writers even have the option to log in to our website to write and edit their pieces. We aim to make the process as smooth as possible for you.

Visual Elements

We recommend that authors include images and videos in their articles to enhance the reader’s experience. Remember to provide source information for each image to ensure proper crediting. High-resolution images (1600x900px minimum) are preferred.

Writing Guidelines:

To help you succeed, we’ve outlined some further writing guidelines for you:

– Before diving straight into the article, start with a captivating hook (2-3 lines tops) that captures the reader’s attention.

– End your article with a solid conclusion that ties everything together.

– Use subheadings (like chapters) to structure your article. Heading 1: Introduction/strong hook, Heading 2: Early Days, etc.

– Incorporate primary sources such as quotes from others in the business discussing your topic. When using direct quotes, include the source URL at the end of the sentence where you used it (rather than at the end of the piece). We will embed the link directly into the sentence where the source is used during editing

– Include one image for each sub-heading. You can copy and paste the images directly into the .docx file where you want them to appear. Please include only high-resolution photos (at least 1600×900 pixels). Additionally, provide suggested captions and the source details for the photos. Once you’ve done that, leave the rest to us!

– No author opinion, biased statements, or first-person references like “I,” “my,” etc.

– Proofread your work before submission to ensure that there are no spelling, grammar, or punctuation errors. Tools like Grammarly can be immensely helpful in this regard.
