Every week, PWTorch VIP members gain access to a new vintage PDF back issue of PWTorch Newsletter from 20 years ago. These issues have not been distributed in any way for 20 years since they were originally published; they have never been posted online before.

#163, cover-dated March 12, 1992: The Cover Story headline reads "Pillman and Sting win World Singles Belts - Liger vs. Pillman Steals Show, Luger Leaves with a Fizzle" in a report on the WCW Superbrawl PPV... Pgs. 2-4 features the Torch Newswire with updates on the WWF scandals and Koko B. Ware winning the USWA Title... Quotebook features the best utterances of the week... Pgs. 5-7 features WCW Superbrawl coverage including Keller's match report with star ratings, Staff Roundtable Reviews including Mark Madden and Bruce Mitchell, and reader thoughts... Pg. 8 features Ringside Beat house show reports including Randy Savage vs. Jake Roberts in Philly, an early ECW event, the WWF in Michigan with Hulk Hogan & Roddy Piper vs. Ric Flair & Undertaker, and WCW in Dallas, Tex. with Ron Simmons in the main event... Eric Krol's feature column on Vince McMahon's difficulty to cope with change... Pgs. 10-11 features reader letters and a Torch Top Ten List on the top pro wrestler pick-up lines... On pg. 12 Wade Keller's BBL editorial contends that Vince McMahon must rediscover his market niche, stating that continued arrogance and irresponsibility will likely lead to bankruptcy...
