A big change is coming for Pro Wrestling Illustrated.

Bill Apter, who was once the face of PWI and the "Apter Mags," has long corrected people when referring to them as such, noting Stu Saks' influence on the magazines. PWI and others were instrumental in gaining exposure for talents particularly in regional areas before the advent of the internet, and the PWI 500 continues to be a huge discussion point today.

Fightful wishes Saks the best of luck in retirement, and we thank him for his contributions to wrestling media.
