Trixie


A Trixie is awarded for opening a forum topic that attracts at least 100 meaningful replies from others.

The Trixie was always intended as a prestige award and it is only appropriate that it was awarded on the first time for a milestone achieved at the time of The First Lady of Wrestling Trixie Pallo's death in February 2013. The first recipient of a Trixie was JN Lister's Timeshift. We have been surprised and encouraged that this topic has now been joined by others, and thank all our enthusiastic forum contributors.


Trixie holders are entitled to use the words "Wrestling Heritage Trixie Holder" in all correspondence, at the foot of their Talk Wrestling forum posts (use Edit profile) and in all Wrestling Heritage related matters.



Congratulations to the current holders...
