I doubt Shane has any hair left given all of the attacks on the site.

I loved TWT, hope Shane can right the ship.  The tech/spam/hack issues have been a problem for quite some time.

I would advise staying away from thewrestlingtalk until this malware issue gets settled.

I don't understand why their site is being singled out for attacks.  They certainly don't deserve it.

As of 4:30pm today, they are claiming that it's fixed.

Go at your own risk. My anti-virus blocked a Trojan horse off of the main forum page.

I'm no computer guy, but I would guess it's not being targeted any more than any other site.  I'm just guessing the upkeep has fallen behind and made it more susceptible to attacks.
Since Jammen has told me twice to change my signature, I can only assume his wrestling knowledge is no longer something I can count on along with pizza and beer.

I hope TWT is soon back to its old self. It rescued me and many others from the Mat.com debacle a few years ago. Still, the silver lining is that I found this site. Hello to my old friends who are here.

Hi, Russ. Good to hear from you. I hope that in your avatar you're the guy sitting in the chair.
