I was kind of a big deal you know…in the late 1990’s, my words were regularly read by over a million people each month. I appeared on podcasts, and in video interviews. As a lifelong wrestling fan, I got to live a dream. Then that dream stopped being fun, and for nearly a decade I stopped watching wrestling.
This week one of the guys that I’ve followed since the very beginning of his career retired from professional wrestling, and in a lot of ways it kind of closed the chapter on a period of my life. WWE’s Edge has retired from active duty as a WWE wrestler after an amazing 14 year career.… Continue reading So long Edge
BretHart.com is CRAPTASTIC! Wow. The new Bret Hart.com redesign is just as craptastic as the old design…just even more craptacular. You would think that the site would be semi-decent, I could throw a dart and hit a half dozen fanatical web freaks who would LOVE to build the guy a site (hell, I could toss… Continue reading BretHart.com is CRAPTASTIC!
I got a lot done this weekend, in addition to working on the big idea that Ryan and I are working on, I managed to get a little bit of re-design for HeadsDown done, and managed to figure out a layout, content schematic, and roughly work on the style sheet. With a little persistance, I… Continue reading An eventful weekend!
It’s come to my attention that Jeff is STILL debating the fact that his team didn’t win the award for “most jobbers” in this year’s Royal Rumble. I thought it best to break down Jeff’s Team in order for him to see that it was a pretty frickin’ decent bunch of guys (oh, and Jeff… Continue reading Putting the debate to rest
I’m number 95! I was named to 411Wrestling.com’s 100 most influential wrestling writers list, and I’m number 95! My TSN.ca/Wrestling co-writer Josh Shiaman was named number 60 on the list. Doesn’t mean a whole lot, I mean I’m not going to get a raise for it or anything, but it’s pretty cool anyway!
The Royal Rumble is by far my favourite WWE PPV of the year, I love the whole concept of the Rumble. For the last couple of years, my friends and I have got together and made a few bets on the outcome. We all throw in five bucks, and draw numbers from a hat, the… Continue reading The Royal Rumble
This week I picked up my new motherboard, a KT3 Ultra. I’ve been basing everything on buying the MSI K7T266a, because I didn’t think I’d be able to find the KT3 at retail for another few months since it was only officially released at the end of February. However, on Friday before Axxess, I popped… Continue reading Still confused.
The Royal Rumble Pool was a ton of fun, but it didn’t exactly turn out as I had hoped. Why not? Take a look at the much vaunted “Team Darkside”, and then compare it to that of my competitors. The winner: Benson’s Brigade (along with the order in which the wrestler emerged): 2 – Goldust… Continue reading Royal Rumble Pool winner
Thirty men enter. One man leaves. Here are the official Royal Rumble Pool Rules: Thirty numbers will be placed in a recepticle (be it hat, or popcorn bucket), and each person will take a turn drawing a number until all numbers are taken. The number will represent the wrestler who arrives in the ring in… Continue reading Royal Rumble Pool
