New Layout and Site News

As you can see, we’ve got a brand new layout here at and our gallery The Peep Show and you may have noticed something else… I’m extremely happy to announce that we are now the official fansite of Jay ‘Christian’ Reso!

Thanks to Natalie, Carmisha and the man himself, Christian for making this happen! We’ve also got an approval video, which you can see on the sidebar. / Instant Classic – Eight Years Online!!

It’s hard to believe that this website was officially opened eight years ago, on this very day… although things have obviously slowed down a lot over the past few years, the website is still going strong, eight years later! It’s even a shock to me! Haha. I know that it’s said that everything just starts off as an idea and that’s just what this website was… an idea, even though I had no idea what I was doing, I had no resources and I doubted this place would even be around two weeks, let alone eight years! But hey, if you’ve been aware of the site for years, you should already know the story…I’ve told it every single year for the past eight years! So I’ll just move on and say thank you….

I wanted to take the time to say thank you to everyone. Thank you to the visitors, even though things have been going slow ever since Christian’s unfortunate forced retirement, but you have still been visiting the website and keeping it alive for the past few years and I will try to repay that back  – but I’ll explain more about that later! Thank you also goes out to my buds Carmisha and David, you guys already know why! Of course, another thank you goes out to Christian, none of this would have been possible, in the first place, if it wasn’t for you!!

Okay, so now to explain a few things….there were supposed to be new layouts up, specially made for the anniversary, but plans unfortunately fell through. The main reason was because of stuff that is going on behind the scenes. As many of you know, I have been meaning to revamp this whole website (including both galleries) for the longest time, but I’ve only been able to really focus on doing so for past few months…and you can see how large our galleries are! It’s been an unfortunate slow process but it has been picking up recently, so hopefully it will all be completed soon! With this, I’ve tried to limit newer uploads to the archived gallery – which needs the most work – which funnily enough, is what I want to upload the most to. Once the revamp is completed, I’m planning on adding a new section to the main site as well as add captures from a huge catalogue of Christian’s wrestling career, that I’ve been fortunate to get a hold of – like I said before, I will be repaying those who keep the site alive and I will try my hardest no to disappoint!

Thank you again everyone, thanks  for the patience, thanks for taking your time to visit and thank you for the past eight years!! It means a lot!

We’re Back Online!!

Hey peeps and welcome back to Instant Classic!

Sorry about all of the recent downtime, but as you know we unfortunately lost our old host recently, I would like to give a huge thank you to Flaunt for now hosting the site as well as the gallery. As you can tell, there are a few changes here… well, one mainly… the site is now under a new main domain –, as well as the gallery – – though the site will still keep a little of it’s history and we shall be keeping the Instant Classic name.. can’t change too much now, can we!

I’m still working on few things, but for the main part, everything is in working order. If you notice any broken links or any other errors, please let me know and I will get everything sorted out as soon as possible.

Huge thanks to everyone for your patience!

Our Galleries Have Been Moved

Just wanted to give everyone a heads up, if you’re not already aware, as the title says, our galleries have been moved. You can now find them in the links below, as well as in our sidebar and in the site’s main navigation at the top of the page. – Celebrating 6 Years Online!

Today, I’m proud to say that / has been online for six years. And I told myself that it would only last two weeks! Ha! (Yes, I know that I say that each and every year)

I can’t believe that it’s already been six years, it still feel as if it were only yesterday when I was even considering making a website. To think it all started because a few friends and I were complaining that there were no active fansites for Captain Charisma and over the years the site has grown so much and become one of longest running and leading resource for everything Christian and his amazing career. I honestly can’t believe how far the site has come over the years and I can truly say that I am so proud with how this site has grown. I’ve been lucky enough to meet great people, most of whom I can still happily call friends and none of it would have been possible if I hadn’t started IC. The site, as well as myself personally, has been through so many ups and downs during the years, but just like Christian, himself, we just keep bouncing back, better than ever.

I just wanted to say thank you, to each and every one of you out there who have ever visited the site, anyone who has donated anything, commented or even taken the time to send messages to me over IC’s social networks. I always, ALWAYS have to say a special thank you to Carmisha and David, you guys are the reason why is here in the first place. None of this would be possible without your constant support, I wouldn’t still be here if it wasn’t for you guys and that goes for everyone!

One more special thank you goes out to the man himself, Christian. You truly are an amazing and talented individual, with an already legendary career that just continues to grow. You’ve been and continue to be an inspiration to so many people out there, including myself and I’m so, so proud to call myself a fan of yours, even though honestly, that’s probably an understatement. Thank you for everything. For what you’ve done to entertain people all over the world and also for the support that you have shown me, you have no idea how much it really means to me and I, as well as the peeps all around the world can’t wait to see you get back in the ring once again!

Once more, thank you to each and every one of you out there, just know that I appreciate every bit of support that all of you have ever shown me over the years. Here’s to yet another year and hopefully many more to come!!

Welcome Back To!

Hey peeps, welcome back to!

First off, I want to thank each and every one of you who have stuck by me for these past few years, especially during the hiatus. It was a break that I needed to have and I had to take a step back from here because over the last few years, I just wasn’t able to put much effort into this site, not through lack of trying of course, just a lot of personal reasons. But I just have to thank everyone for the patience and support, I appreciate it so very much.

Over the past few months I’ve been working stupidly hard (yes I did just say that) on revamping the site as I hadn’t changed much of anything for going on three years. Because of that and because of how the site has been run for the last couple of years, I decided that it would be best to start all over again; a new beginning.

With that being the case, not only has the site got a new look, but I’ve also archived the gallery which will hold photos up to 2012. Also, as a side note the site is also mobile ready, so to anyone who accesses the site via their mobile phones or tablets it can be easily viewed, this option is also able to be shut off so you can view the site either way – this has been the case even before the hiatus but I thought it would be best to at least mention it.

Over the next few, well, however long it takes me, I’ll be adding all of the missing photos to the archived gallery as well as a few newer ones to our newest gallery, including missing screen captures, magazine scans and many other things.

Again, I just want to thank everyone out there for having a lot of patience with me, during the hiatus. I’d love to hear any feedback from you guys, so be sure to let us know what you all think via Twitter and/or Facebook.
