Change in Plans, New Wrestling History Database Coming



I had mentioned before I wanted to add an MMA side to the site, where you could predict MMA fights and get ranked similarly to how you do right now for wrestling. However, I've decided a project like that would really deserve a completely separate website. (with the option to share accounts between the two sites) I do not expect to begin work on this for a while, though.

What I am beginning to work on, though, is a complete wrestling history database. It will be a database that can hold every match at every card (house show, TV, PPV, etc) along with as much detail as can be provided (the participants, officials, anyone who interfered, order of entry of wrestlers, order of elimination along with who eliminated th person, etc). You will be able to search by anything - if you want to find any matches Shawn Michaels has been an official in (special referee, outside enforcer, etc), you can do it. Want to get a list of all of Rey Mysterio's matches in ECW? You'll be able to do that.

I plan to enter as much data for it as I can, but I am also building the capability for any user to submit as little or as much as possible. If you find a match in the directory, and you know for sure who the official was, you'll be able to add it yourself. Can't find a match you know happened? You'll be able to add it.

Over time I think it could be best record of wrestling history - with features I'd love to have easy access to. Wikipedia and other wrestling sites can help you find matches, but there isn't a match database with multiple search options that I've found, and I think it'll be a great help for anyone researching a wrestling topic. I'm starting it off small, but eventually I hope to even create a feud database, so you can see what feuds happened when, and which matches were specifically associated with that feud.

You'll also be able to rate past shows, matches, wrestlers, and more. For PPVs that are recent enough to have had a prediction game here, the ratings will be linked together so you'd find the same ratings when viewing the PPV in either area of the site. I'll also add in commenting features for just about every option - want to comment specifically on Undertaker's performance in a match? You won't have to do it by leaving it as a generic comment on the match - you'll be able to target your comment to each individual wrestler, official, etc.

This will be a huge project that will take quite some time to develop, but I think it will be a lot of fun. I plan to build it using the easiest interface possible so not only do I think it could be a great resource, but it will be a fun experiment for me, too!
