We certainly understand that not all of the DDTrs will continue to post at this forum. But, ultimately theddt was becoming too much to maintain and without a lot of visits. A lot of energy was being put into making this Site successful.
There was a talk about out-right getting rid of theddt with no replacement. In the end, this seems a good compromise. In that, it's a place on the new site that would be as difficult to maintain. I think it was a good nod by James towards the old DDT members of essentially saying, we're moving on, but, we don't want to leave folks behind as there were lots of good dudes still at TheDDT.
I dig this site. Its got the same people and it actually has content ... WHICH theDDT used to have.

That last point is a good one. theddt had content originally. And in its current form, it just didn't. And, most of the people who were members of the forum were there because of the content.
Now, you could say to just call this place theddt instead of the powerbomb, but, one, I think Reject was worried about legacy if this place didn't work out...or, just because it is completely different. Plus, we couldn't get BFP back in the mix.
Here's the big positive...theddt wasn't attracting new members. That was obvious. Reject even had that ad with Wrestling Observer. So, now, with a forum where the content is, well, if thepowerbomb takes off the way theddt did, longterm, that could definitely make the place a bit more vibrant than theddt forum was currently.
theddt unfortunately turned into "what the fuck will Pollak say next?"
Well unfortunately, Pollaks trolling and the reactions to it were the only thing happening on the site.

Indeed. We are hoping that eventually we can get the forums here back to what they were when theddt did have content and did have things going on. This is kind of the first step. The motherfuckin' bomb has only been around 2 weeks or so.
