I find it depressing that in most newsagents the WWE magazine used to be stacked with other sports magazines, but now it's stacked on the bottom shelf with kids magazines next to the Beano.

Really? I usually find the 4 wrestling mags in the sports section, and only the WWE Kids Magazine in the kids section. At least in most of the Easons I go to.

Used to buy WWE mag when I was younger. Then bought it a few times in my later years cause of the Diva pictures (<_<). Then they stopped doing even them. I find my problem is that there are better magazines out there in every possible way (news, interviews, reviews, etc) and that aren't obviously biased....

Raw Magazine used to be decent when Vince Russo was involved with it (Yes I just praised something Russo related!). They had decent non-kayfabe interviews and features. Best one I remember is one with Edge about his life and career.

Only wrestling magazine I'd get now is Powerslam.

I get both FSM and Powerslam, since I find the articles are strong in the first and the news is better in the second. Plus differeing opinions is always interesting.

I shall be cancelling my subscription to FSM in the summer when it runs out though; It takes way too long to get to my house by post for some reason. Have seen it in shops two weeks before it arrives at my house, thus making the subscription pointless...

So you are cancelling FSM as it takes too long to get to you but you buy Powerslam for the news instead for paying for an online site?

Ah yeah your dead right, Eason still stock it in the Sports section!

In Tesco it's bottom shelf with the kids rags. Tesco have a cool looking new WWE 3D mag with 3D posters in stock now.

I've taken a serious knock in my liking of FSM due to their shocking subscription service. I still buy it, but I find I rate Powerslam more nowadays...

I found whenever I bought Fighting Spirit it was just a bit full of itself & the Lance Storm articles were pure boring.I only bought 3 & never read the last one before dumping it out in the recycling. Way rather Power Slam their review of Mania was right on the head but I could do without the 6 page 3 part Edge love-ins.I was particularly dissapointed with the Savage article this month,thank god they are doing a 2nd part.

I used to really enjoy a mag called World of Wrestling which later changed to Power of Wrestling. Bill Apter was the editor if I remember correctly. I haven't seen it anywhere in years now though, I presume its no longer published.

When was the last time you read FSM out of interest? Personally I dont pay attention to Lance, Nick Adlis, Apters stuff at the end of the mag.

they reviewed Couture vs Big Nog & talked about ROH losing Danielson & McGuinness. It was around Autumn 09 I think. It was a bit out of date when it had a interview with McGuinness talking about him signing with wwe.
