From the loft: 14 years of WCW, WWE, WWF, TNA and ECW coverage

From the death of Brian Pillman back in late 1997, all the way through to the current John Cena, all contained with the pages of Power Slam magazine.

I've been collecting these magazines, on and off since my teens, but alas, as a thirty year-old man, it's time to get rid of them.

So they're going, this Sunday, on eBay.


Here's what's up for grabs:

52 editions of Powerslam Magazine from 1997-2011, 3 editions of Fighting Spirit Magazine containing exclusive interviews with Kurt Angle and AJ Styles, several pull-out specials and two WWE merchandise catalogues from the Attitude Era.

A full list of the issues, the month they were published and the main feature can be found below. Some of the highlights include:


  • Death of Brian Pillman and tribute
  • Brock Lesnar and Stone Cold leave WWE
  • Kurt Angle joins TNA
  • Several years of PS50 - Ranking the top 50 pro wrestlers in the world


Most of these magazines are in fair-to-good condition, though a few haven't stood the test of time so well and do have a few tears, creases or marks. I've clearly labelled the condition of each magazine in the list below.

Hoping to sell all these as a job lot as I no longer have the room in my loft for them, but if they don't sell I will consider selling individual issues.
