In looking at the countries above, I assume there’s a good possibility that at least a few of those PWBTS.com visitors are from the US military. According to AddFreeStats, I already know there have been many visits from US military hostnames. For those of you in the US military, wherever you’re serving, thanks for taking time to read PWBTS.com. I hope we’ve given you some enjoyment in the middle of your difficult task.
In other milestones, AS I SEE IT also begins its eighteenth with this column. Additionally, PWBTS.com, its flagship site has now reached over 45 million page views during its 18 year history.

To all of you… wherever you are from, thank you for taking time out of your day to read PWBTS.com’s mix of wrestling news and opinions.
