Long-time wrestling publication to stop printing after 173 issues.
The UK’s biggest wrestling magazine, Fighting Spirit Magazine will be no more as in their latest issue they announced that they will be ceasing production.
With no formal announcement made online yet, several people have been posting messages of thanks on social media. @Allan_cheapshot tweeted a quote from editor Brian Elliot saying that “After issue 173, released on August 15, there will be no more”.
The publication launched its first issue on April 13th 2006, in print form and boasted feature columnists such as professional wrestlers Stone Cold Steve Austin and Nick Aldis as well as MLW commentator Jim Cornette.
Legendary wrestling Bret Hart, Mick Foley and Chris Jericho have all written for FSM and Bill Apter worked in an administrative role.
There are no reports yet whether it will continue in digital form.
