Here's a pic from right before Against All Odds in 2006: http://web.archive.org/web/20060203050254/http://www.talktna.com/forum/index.php?
By that point we had 12,600 members. I started posting back in 2003 when it first started when it was the official forums of then NWA-TNA.com(TNA's original website). Dixie Carter(user name 'tnadixie') and other people/talent in the company posted. I remember anytime Dixie posted she got trolled like crazy.
Eventually TNA got rid of their forums, but the members continued the forums under new not-affiliated with TNA names. TalkImpact.com(Talk iMPACT! Radio came from this) was the first I think, then it eventually led to the different variations of Wrestle Connect that we have today.
I thought I'd give a little history of where this thing we call Wrestle Connect came from for the new users and how we actually are a spin-off of sorts today of TNA's official online forums.
Indy, Swarles, etc. feel free to chime in if you want. I used to post as 'JoCrazy' back in the day.
