Eight years ago the following announcement appeared on the website of the Junior Professional Wrestling Association, Inc.
On May 29th, 2002, the JPWA Board of Directors decided to close the JPWA web site. The JPWA site has always been devoted simply to wrestling entertainment; unfortunately, some in the media are selectively choosing certain images and making incorrect generalizations and assumptions about our organization. Although we feel that we committed no wrongdoing of any kind, the Board felt that it was in the best interest of all parties involved to close the site. All prior orders for merchandise will be filled. The JPWA Board and wrestlers would like to extend our gratitude to everyone who has shown support to our organization through our existence, and especially to those who have expressed their support in the past month.
Unless the young wrestlers issued complaints and charges of misconduct I never heard about, there doesn't appear to be much more than innuendo to suggest that Davidowich conducted himself in an inappropriate manner. He might have been naive--even repressed sexually--but the pictures are just pictures of guys wrestling. Sure, they are hot, but they are not much different from thousands of pictures of athletes in skimpy gear that turn some of us pervs on. By the logic of the media in 2002, everybody involved in the training of Michael Phelps ought to be arrested and put on trial--whereas simply handcuffing the swimmer to my bed would be enough.
By the way, JPWA appears to have risen from its ashes this year. Its relatively innocuous (though unarguably sensuous) videos are again available on VHS and DVD at its site.
I wonder whether St Michael's is getting a taste of the profits.
