Founding of WWE[edit]

Then if that's the case, then why did it say it say the WWE was founded in 1952 by Vincent K. and Linda McMahon? There's no possible way Vince K. McMahon could've founded the World Wrestling Federation/Entertainment in January 1952 when he was 6 years old. I mean, I know Vince McMahon is an intelligent man, but I don't think it's in any way possible for a 6 year old child to start up a wrestling company. Powderkegg (talk) 19:01, 30 April 2018 (UTC)

@Powderkegg: A bunch of kids did start a wrestling promotion back in the 80s I believe. They even had their own TV show. But when it comes to Vince McMahon, he didn't start the WWE. He took it over from his father Vince McMahon Sr. who took it over from his dad Roderick McMahon and Toots Mondt. Vince Sr. ran it as WWWF than WWF til 1982 when Vince Jr. bought it from his Vince Sr. In essence It's right in the article. If the infobox is wrong, you fix. But some might deem that a controversial edit. If you want to bring it up, you can do on the WWE talk page and or the professional wrestling project talk page. Mr. C.C.Hey yo!I didn't do it! 02:22, 3 May 2018 (UTC)
I think the confusion is that WWE, the entity we know now, was founded in 1982 by Vince McMahon, as Titan Sports. His grandfather started Capital Wrestling, which eventually became WWWF, then WWF. When Titan went public it was renamed to WWFE, while the subsidiary continued to operate as WWF. Then in the early 2000s both became known as WWE. - GalatzTalk 02:33, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

Hi Galatz, I just wanted to let you know that I have added the "autopatrolled" permission to your account, as you have created numerous, valid articles. This feature will have no effect on your editing, and is simply intended to reduce the workload on new page patrollers. For more information on the autopatrolled right, see Wikipedia:Autopatrolled. Feel free to leave me a message if you have any questions. Happy editing! Schwede66 19:36, 2 May 2018 (UTC)[edit]

I put up for discussion on the sources talk page of the project which you can see here. Nobody has posted their thoughts on that site as of yet. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks. Mr. C.C.Hey yo!I didn't do it! 00:02, 3 May 2018 (UTC)

Your Retracting of ROH PPV Edits[edit]

I have some additional sources that prove that the events I added happened on PPV. Redjedia (talk) 03:21, 11 May 2018 (UTC)

Vengeance and Night of Champions[edit]

I posted this on 2 different talk pages but didn’t get a reply but WWE lists them as seperate events. In the NoC archives its listed from 2007-2015, link - It seems they consider them seperate and the 2007 event is considered a dual event. Ron234 (talk) 17:13, 14 May 2018 (UTC)

Unnecessary revert of part of the WWE Hall of Fame (2018) article[edit]

You have did a uncalled for and unnecessary revert of my edit on the "Event" section of the article on this year's WWE Hall of Fame even before you have checked that the first part of that section and realizing that the event DIDN'T take place before WrestleMania XXX but before WM 34! As such, I hope you undo the revert and don't make this mistake again. Kyrios320 (talk) 15:42, 15 May 2018 (UTC)

@Kyrios320: I really hope this is a joke. If not read your edit [1] read it really carefully. According to your edit WWE Network has only been around for 2 months. Great work! - GalatzTalk 00:23, 16 May 2018 (UTC)

I've already read your revert and I didn't read the section properly before editing it, sorry about this. Please, don't ask for a full ban of my Wikipedia account, I'm truly sorry about this. Kyrios320 (talk) 08:04, 17 May 2018 (UTC)

Reversion of my Simpsons page change[edit]

I added a bit to the section on the "decline in quality" pointing out that the last 4 or 5 seasons have had a distinct shift in their quality compared to the previous 10-15. Just wondering why you reverted it? Thirdprize (talk) 16:36, 23 May 2018 (UTC) @Thirdprize: I assume you are talking about this edit [2] from 3 months ago? Its pure WP:OR and WP:POV - GalatzTalk 16:48, 23 May 2018 (UTC)


Hello. I added WWE as a minority owner because of the articles which recently came out. Here is the link

Proposed deletion of Heavy Machinery and Street Profits articles.[edit]

Hi Galatz. I'm not sure if I'm doing this correctly at all so if not I apologize. I recently set up two articles for official tag teams competing in NXT (WWE brand), namely The Street Profits and Heavy Machinery. To be very honest with you, I'm quite new to to the editing side of Wikipedia but have been a major fan of the site, in general, since its inception. I may have unknowingly broken rules and if I have, I'm sorry for that. I'd like to maintain the above named pages if possible and I promise to look after their upkeep with references but at the same time not to pointlessly add redundant information.

Thank you for your time — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fwaig (talkcontribs) 13:15, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

@Fwaig: The issue with the page is that currently they do not meet WP:GNG which is why they were deleted based on Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Heavy Machinery (professional wrestling) and Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/Street Profits. - GalatzTalk 13:24, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

@User:Galatz . Thank you for replying. I see. So do I need to include a wider variety of sources?

@Fwaig: At this point those two pages will likely be deleted again because as I said, they currently do not meeting WP:GNG. A team/stable takes a lot longer usually than two individuals to become notable. If they broke up tomorrow would they ever be remembered? As an example, The Undisputed Era just got their own page after doing a lot more over a much longer period of time than these teams. - GalatzTalk 13:53, 24 May 2018 (UTC)
@Galatz:I suppose that comes down to what one's interpretation of notable is. Heavy Machinery are around since 2016 and are the longest serving legitimate tag team on the NXT brand. I take your point on their achievements though. I'd be happy to monitor the page's progress and keep things up to date and free of spam if it's allowed to stay, as well as adding some more outside and recognised sources. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Fwaig (talkcontribs) 14:15, 24 May 2018 (UTC) Fwaig (talk) 14:18, 24 May 2018 (UTC) User:Fwaig
@Fwaig: What is needed to be considered notable can be found at WP:GNG and what wrestling specific websites are notable can be found at WP:PW/Sources. Note that certain websites like cagematch are notable for things like supporting information, but cannot be used to establish notability. - GalatzTalk 14:25, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

@Galatz: Thank you for the advice, I shall have a look at those links now. Fwaig (talk) 14:36, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

@Fwaig: If you do find appropriate sources, the next step would be a listing at WP:Deletion review. —Cryptic 21:05, 24 May 2018 (UTC)

NPR Newsletter No.11 25 May 2018[edit]

Hello Galatz, thank you for your work reviewing New Pages!


  • WP:ACREQ has been implemented. The flow at the feed has dropped back to the levels during the trial. However, the backlog is on the rise again so please consider reviewing a few extra articles each day; a backlog approaching 5,000 is still far too high. An effort is also needed to ensure that older unsuitable older pages at the back of the queue do not get automatically indexed for Google.

Deletion tags

  • Do bear in mind that articles in the feed showing the trash can icon may have been tagged by inexperienced or non NPR rights holders. They require your further verification.

Backlog drive:

  • A backlog drive will take place from 10 through 20 June. Check out our talk page at WT:NPR for more details. NOTE: It is extremely important that we focus on quality reviewing. Despite our goal of reducing the backlog as much as possible, please do not rush while reviewing.


  • There will be a large increase in the number of editathons in June. Please be gentle with new pages that obviously come from good faith participants, especially articles from developing economies and ones about female subjects. Consider using the 'move to draft' tool rather than bluntly tagging articles that may have potential but which cannot yet reside in mainspace.

Paid editing - new policy

  • Now that ACTRIAL is ACREQ, please be sure to look for tell-tale signs of undisclosed paid editing. Contact the creator if appropriate, and submit the issue to WP:COIN if necessary. There is a new global WMF policy that requires paid editors to connect to their adverts.

Subject-specific notability guidelines

  • The box at the right contains each of the subject-specific notability guidelines, please review any that are relevant BEFORE nominating an article for deletion.
  • Reviewers are requested to familiarise themselves with the new version of the notability guidelines for organisations and companies.

Not English

  • A common issue: Pages not in English or poor, unattributed machine translations should not reside in main space even if they are stubs. Please ensure you are familiar with WP:NPPNE. Check in Google for the language and content, tag as required, then move to draft if they do have potential.


  • Development is underway by the WMF on upgrades to the New Pages Feed, in particular ORES features that will help to identify COPYVIOs, and more granular options for selecting articles to review.
  • The next issue of The Signpost has been published. The newspaper is one of the best ways to stay up to date with news and new developments. between our newsletters.

ECW/FMW Supershow[edit]

If it wasn't shown on PPV in the US and only in Japan, should it be considered an official ECW PPV?--Stco23 (talk) 20:49, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

@Stco23: Were the WWE Rebellion and WWE Insurrextion PPVs not officially WWE PPVs because they only were shown in the UK? - GalatzTalk 19:53, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

I was thinking about putting it only as a official FMW PPV with ECW being a special guest. It was never an official ECW PPV since it was never announced as a PPV by ECW.--Stco23 (talk) 20:47, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

@Stco23: Do you have a source to support your claim? - GalatzTalk 21:08, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

This shows FMW/ECW which should indicate that FMW was the one that ran the PPV with ECW being a special guest.--Stco23 (talk) 21:21, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

@Stco23: Sounds to me like that means its jointly produced. - GalatzTalk 21:35, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

This is the FMW Wikipedia article and it talks about their brief history with ECW.--Stco23 (talk) 21:34, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

@Stco23: ROH/NJPW do events where its one promotions events and the other one also has wrestlers there, just like Impact/Lucha Underground. They also do jointly produced events. - GalatzTalk 21:37, 29 May 2018 (UTC)

Two purposes for categories[edit]

Re: today's reverts, please see Wikipedia:FAQ/Categorization#What is the purpose of categories?. In this case, Ohio Valley Wrestling is a sub-topic of the topic "Sports in Louisville, Kentucky". The topic category isn't meant to be a list of individual sports. Stevie is the man! TalkWork 17:31, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

To Stevietheman: Per WP:PW/SG "Categories should not include sports specific categories." It is entertainment, not a sport. If you want to create Category:Entertainment in Louisville, Kentucky go right ahead and create it then add this to it. This would be consistent with Category:Professional wrestling in the United States - GalatzTalk 17:35, 5 June 2018 (UTC)
Oh I see now. Thanks. It would have been nice if this was in the original removal edit summary. Stevie is the man! TalkWork 17:38, 5 June 2018 (UTC)

In Wrestling[edit]

I only saw the discussion recently. When I started a discussion on Diva Dirt, I made sure to notify people to get more of a wide range of opinion. If a major change like this was wanting to happen, it would have been nice to have been notified about such a discussion. Mr. C.C.Hey yo!I didn't do it! 15:24, 14 June 2018 (UTC)

@Fishhead2100: It was on the wikiproject, which you clearly follow since you comment all the time. - GalatzTalk 16:22, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
That doesn't mean I see everything. Mr. C.C.Hey yo!I didn't do it! 16:41, 14 June 2018 (UTC)
