Nothing found with http://sitecheck.sucuri.net/results/www.wrestlingforum.com/ or http://urlquery.net/report.php?id=324710 or http://www.urlvoid.com/scan/wrestlingforum.com/. But that shows that there is more than just this domain on that IP address. So it is possible that the block is by IP address (one one of these domains) rather than on the wrestlingforum.com domain.

That said I don't get an alert on the wrestlingforum.com home page, that said there are a lot of external sight links which could also be an issue. As I use firefox with NoScript and RequestPolicy add-ons which don't allow these I may not be getting the alert.

That said looking at your link to the avast details (see image, click to expand), avast isn't alerting on the wrestlingforum.com site but what looks like a banner ad site bannerplusapi.com. So this could be a bit of ads poinoning.
