From time to time, PWO gets accused of having one mind and one opinion in regards to certain wrestlers/styles/matches that are our favorites. I find this to be fairly astounding given the diverse opinion of the group of people I interact with about wrestling on a daily basis.
Here was a quick listing that I thought of off the top of my head with prominent posters/mods here on things we disagree on:
1. I had the 8/24/94 Kansai/Hotta vs. Hokuto/Kong match as my #2 MOTY and *****, Loss didn't rank this on first watch at even ***.
2. Loss is generally a big fan of Hayabusa, I am not a fan and Childs especially isn't.
3. I rated Rage in a Cage from 1997 as *****, Childs hated the match.
4. Goodhelmet sees Murdoch as a top 30 worker of all time, he will have to fight to make my bottom 25.
5. I disagree with a lot of what MattD says/views wrestling. 12/25/86 Rockers vs. Somers/Rose.
6. Me and Parv have had our share of disagreements on matches, the current product, etc.
7. Grimmas and Will can dig the fuck out of minis, take them or leave them with me for the most part.
8. I praised a Nikita vs. Sting match on WTBBP, Shoe went the other way as did Parv.
9. Dylan digs ECW, I have been left cold by almost everything dealing with it.
10. Dylan highly praised Curt Hennig heel stuff on the AWA set, me and Parv thought it was middling.
This is ten examples but it shows that this happens between moderators and people that share podcast hosting duties.
I don't need to get into the arguments between Joe/Dylan and JDW/Parv that have occurred. All of the above examples are people I readily consider to be "friends" with.
Certainly when building a leadership team for a website/podcast/etc, you tend to view people who are fundamentally like you from time to time, but true success usually comes from diversity, springboarding off of that facet, I know for a fact through personal facts, that the entity of PWO is a lot different outside of wrestling too religiously/politically/etc.
Does this mean that Lawler may be considered the #1 wrestler of all time here and no where else? Sure, but don't take that to mean that everyone agrees with Will stating that and in fact podcasts have been conducted of counterarguments to that claim.
We will agree on some and disagree on others but the strive of PWO is to bring intelligent, focused wrestling discussion. I don't want to stray off of that initiative.
My plea is that we don't think of PWO as one thought but a community of minds discussing a hobby we all enjoy.
