Dave Scherer

  (Redirected from Pro Wrestling Insider)

Dave Scherer is an American sports writer and journalist,[1][2] best known for writing about professional wrestling for the ECW Magazine, New York Daily News,[3] World of Wrestling Magazine, 1Wrestling.com[4][5] and founding the newsletter The Wrestling Lariat[6][7] in 1995[8] and the website PWInsider.com, which he created in 2004 when he left 1Wrestling together with several other reporters.[9][10][11] Scherer played an important part in making Extreme Championship Wrestling noticed in the early 90s through tape trading and gained a cult following among the hardcore ECW fans at the time when he appeared at the promotions shows.[12][13][14] Scherer later worked for ECW in various capacities while still reporting with independent publications.[15][16] PWInsider is one of the most popular pro wrestling news websites[17] and has been cited by CBS Sports as perhaps the most trusted source for wrestling news, despite Scherer not being a traditionally trained journalist,[18] but the site has also been criticized for its liberal use of advertising, many of which are pop-ups, which has been blamed on Scherer.[19][20][21]
