Although the focus of Inside The Ropes Magazine will be largely geared towards modern content with news, reviews, profiles and analysis, the new publication is also intended to cater for wrestling fans who yearn for the “good old days”.

Inside The Ropes Magazine will look to achieve that with extensive retro-themed content (including classic figures, video games, title changes, PPVs, TV shows, merchandise, magazines, wrestler profiles and much more), bright and vibrant styling throughout, numerous hidden Easter Eggs for long-time fans, and an overall 80s/90s aesthetic.

“I wouldn’t be in the position I’m in today if it wasn’t for wrestling magazines like Power Slam. I owe the career and life I have to the great work done in wrestling magazines over the years. To bring together this Mount Rushmore of wrestling journalists in a collective effort to preserve this vital medium for years to come means the world to me.” – Kenny McIntosh

“I get goosebumps when I think about this magazine and that I am part of it. This cannot be the last hurrah for wrestling magazines. It’s up to us to keep it alive. It’s up to you to support it. It’s a tradition.” – Bill Apter

“There’s no doubt the media world is changing and this may be the last chance to have a great wrestling magazine” – Brian Elliott

“This is our opportunity to really save wrestling magazines and pass that down to a generation that needs it” – Keith Elliot Greenberg

“This magazine feels like a natural progression of everything I’ve done prior to this point. I can’t wait to get started” – Findlay Martin

“Our magazine is written by people who love pro wrestling, who remain fans. We want our magazine to transport readers into a larger-than-life world. We are going to pay homage to magazines of the past – to the past in general – but with modern, well-written content that people can enjoy in 2020 and beyond.” – Dan Richardson
