Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s Editor Retires – Replacement Announced

Mar 11, 2020 - by James Walsh

After over 40 years on the job, Stu Staks announced that he is stepping down as the editor and publisher and retiring from the Pro Wrestling Illustrated magazine. 

Staks announced the news via the official PWI Twitter feed on Tuesday afternoon. 

“It’s with a broad range of emotions that I announce I will be retiring and stepping down as editor and publisher of Pro Wrestling Illustrated on June 5,” wrote Staks on Tuesday. “I’ve devoted two-thirds of my life to this magazine and its sister publications and, believe me, it’s not easy to walk away.” 

The comments came from a lengthy statement issued by the 40-year veteran of one of the most-beloved pro wrestling magazines of all-time, which features the annual PWI Top 500 List of Wrestlers special issue every year. 

It was announced that Staks will be replaced by Kevin McElvaney.
