Vortex Effect Is Pleased To Announce That Network Site PW Main Event Is Officially Launched

PW Main Event

Today, Vortex Effect expands a little with the creation of The Vortex Effect Network, and the official launch of PW Main Event. This site was created in 2011 to cover many different topics. Primarily a wrestling and gaming site, Vortex Effect also had movie news and reviews, MMA, sports, some occasional music, and even political posts (Ron Paul!). Over time, we completely dropped the politics and music and ultimately shifted more towards being a gaming first site. As of today, we're also dropping wrestling from the things we cover here on Vortex Effect. Unlike politics and music though, we're doing so because we want to do MORE wrestling stuff. I know the audience we get. I see where you're coming from and what you're searching for to get here. I know what articles you're reading, and … [Read more...]

No More Wrestling Content on Vortex Effect

WWE Logo

We started this site in April 2011 and the very first post was a wrestling post. The site was intended to be largely a wrestling site with a focus also on gaming and movie reviews; very much a hybrid mashing of our different interests. Overtime, the site has shifted more and more towards video games and the wrestling took a back seat, mostly. The initial audience we had for wrestling stuff left, seemingly not caring about all the gaming stuff that was dominating (can't say I blame them). Likewise, not too many of our current readership cares about the wrestling content. So, while Vortex Effect remains a hybrid site of gaming and movies, and even sports occasionally, there will be no more wrestling content here (unless its about a video game). Why are sports allowed and wrestling has to … [Read more...]

Wrestling Matters: Free Advice for TNA – Authority Figures

As we approach 2014, just a couple of months away, I can’t help but think about how stale wrestling is getting (or rather has been). This column in particular is geared towards TNA, as the title says, but in actuality these are changes I just would like to see in general. It’s focused on TNA only because at this point WWE is too large and too set in its ways to change their formula up without having to. TNA on the hand is constantly struggling to try and find an identity and a direction that works. The number one problem with TNA is that they simply try to do nothing but be like WWE. Professional wrestling, on a global level, does not have to be like WWE to be successful. If anything, I’d argue that TNA’s insistence on trying to be like WWE is the key thing that holds them back. I … [Read more...]
