Welcome to MAT Wrestling Update, what used to be the best WWE Fan Site... ever!
9th January 2008
Well it's a week since the closure people, and I'm already back on the 'net! I'm the 'Chief Administrator' of the WWE-TNA Unlimited message boards owned by former MAT Deputy Leader Ernest Bethea. Here's the link: http://wwetnaunlimited.proboards105.com/. Feel free to register!

On 2nd January 2008, MAT Leader Mike decided to call it a day, and finally close MAT... permanently. With 2 whole years of history, and name changes from Mike's WWE Update, to MLM WWE Update, to MAT WWE Update and then finally MAT Wresting Update, the site will be missed by it's visitors.
Mike's contributions have consumed a proportion of his life, and he has enjoyed every minute of it. "When I launched Mike's WWE Update on what is now Windows Live Spaces, I never expected it to be so popular! And then when I moved to Freewebs, I never expected to lead a dedicated team of wrestling fanatics like I have. I know many people will be happy that the site has closed, whilst others will be upset that one of their best sources has finally tumbled. Before the decision was made for the closure of the site, we had a lot of backstage drama that was really getting to us all. From the well-known eSnips media problems, where our content was starting to be removed, to the same issues with our WWE Videos on Dailymotion. Not long before the new year, we removed several features from the site, claiming that we simply did not have enough time to manage them. I knew then, that the downfall was beginning."
MAT Leader Mike would like to personally thank everybody that has visited the site, whether you be a regular visitor or simply a one-off visitor. He'd also like to thank all those that were fortunate enough to be part of the MAT Staff team, including:
Apologies to anybody whose name that has been missed!
"Don't forget that I'm still a wrestling fan myself, and all emails will be greatly appreciated (email@example.com). It's time for the next part of my life to begin! Thanks a lot, and take care everybody."
