Lightbulb Submission Wrestling Encyclopedia

Original post:

Hi, guys!

Recently I have been thinking about a new project - a virtual encyclopedia of female submission wrestling. A place where information about all the wrestlers, producers and artists could be gathered. Because right now there is no resource where people could go to to learn the history of this form of entertainment. At this moment the information is in private hands, scattered all across the globe, and I have this persistent fear that most of it will be lost as the generations pass.

Right now we are fortunate enough to live in a digital era which gives us the opportunity of creating a virtual museum, where the story of female & mixed submission wrestling could be gathered & saved.

This should be a collaborative project, because no one person is capable of doing this work, especially since it will be a part time thing, and it won't be for profit.

Thus we would have to contact everyone who has potentially valuable information at hand and bring them in, teach the wiki editing skills, if they don't already possess them.

As you have noticed I'm quite enthusiastic about it and I'm willing to see who is in. "In" not on words, but really ready to donate their time and share their knowledge.

Even if you are new to the world of wrestling, but possess good English writing skills, you could contribute by editing articles of people like myself, non native speakers.

What do you think Forum?

Great idea!
I hope it will grow to become a massive database on this topic.
I myself have lots of data but no time at the moment. But in a few months, i hope i also can contribute.

I was trying to get a feel for the wiki, and what kinds of information were going to be a part of it...but I still have a question; so just wanted to ask.

I couldn't tell if the "Female Submission Wrestling" moniker was meant as female-only (strictly FvF), OR if it meant any wrestling that had a female participant (as in both FvF and MvF.)

If you could help clear that up for me that would be great

Rhinos,

Short answer - yes, mixed wrestling is a part of it.

The term female submission wrestling refers to the world of female submission wrestling, and encompasses everything related to it. As it is an encyclopedia, it ideally will be full of articles about female wrestlers on the scene, producers - male or female, male wrestlers who are famously involved in competitive female submission wrestling circuits (many of the DWW male wrestlers come to mind), etc.

If you have noticed, in the articles about wrestlers there are two sections of records - f/f and f/m records separately.
