A. This site contains a variety of professional wrestling results in database form. The web-based front-end allows searching of results to generate match histories of particular wrestlers. The results of over 10,000 cards (wrestling events) are now included. Many wrestlers have hundreds of matches listed; some have over 1,500 matches listed!
Q. When did this website go live?
A. The site was originally launched on 5th August 2008. Due to heavy bandwidth, we moved to a new server on 16th January 2009 and later moved again on 6th October 2009.
Q. At what stage of development is this website and database?
A. This site is an ongoing project. Due to the nature of professional wrestling this site will continuously be updated with new results. Whilst the majority of major cards from recent years (at least in the United States) are already entered, there will be numerous more results added as time allows.
Q. What information is included in the database so far?
A. Amongst the card results in the database so far are:
Q. What is being added to the database currently?
A. All sorts of stuff from around the pro wrestling world.
Any PPV's or TV results from WWE, TNA or ROH that occur during this time will be updated as soon as possible.
Q. What is in scope for inclusion in the future?
A. Essentially, as much as we can add, we will.
Over time, expect more results from WWE, TNA, WCW, AJPW, Dragon Gate, Zero-One, CMLL, AAA and more. However please note that adding results to the database is a lengthier and more involved process than just publishing them as text on a website. As such, it cannot happen overnight.
House shows are in scope. Many are already included, including all Madison Square Garden (MSG) results and a large number from Japanese promotions. More North American house show results will be added in due course.
Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) results are not in scope unless they took place on a pro wrestling card. The site Sherdog.com fulfills the need for a MMA database already.
Q. How can I stay up-to-date about new features/ scheduled downtime, etc?
A. We now have a Twitter account @wrestlebase. Feel free to follow us. In the future we will have an opt-in/opt-out email distribution list too.
Q. If I follow your Twitter account, will you follow mine?
A. Honestly... probably not. People should use Twitter to follow a person or a body if they feel it is in their interest to do so. But reciprocal schemes just for the sake of boosting social media numbers isn't something we want to be part of.
Q. How can I send feedback or let you know about a mistake in the results/ code bug?
Q. Can I add results to the database myself?
A. Not for the time being. This is a consideration for the future of the site, but should not be expected soon.
If you're interested in editing the site in the future, please let us know via the Contact Form.
Q. What sources did you use to obtain the results?
A. Whilst many of the results on this site come from our own unique research, some of the results were obtained through a combination of other sources. In some cases, results sent in by our users may have been partially sourced from other sites. All of these deserve credit for their own individual research. We would like to single out the following sources for their hard work and dedication:
