RIP WWE Magazine


According to The Wrestling Observer, the last issue of WWE Magazine produced by the company itself will be in October. The Magazine will have been in operation for thirty years; it first began as WWE Victory Magazine in 1984.

There is still the possibility that another publisher will pick up the magazine, with WWE licensing the magazine name to them. This probably isn't that surprising of news as print media has been dwindling down in many forms over the past several years, from magazines to newspapers.

Well, it was going to happen sooner or later, with print essentially being something of a dying medium. And while it'd be hard to imagine a world without a WWE Magazine, I can take solace in the fact that, at the very least, it would have died while a lesser form of itself.
