WrestleMania recap
Sudeep Popat - 4-4-2005 at 06:40 PM

I'm wondering why Rick hasn't yet posted the recap. I've been waiting for it. I'm from India, and we don't get to watch PPVs until two weeks later, so I always look forward to reading the recaps here.

Anyway, I just had this conversation with a friend, which I thought was worth posting to get a response from loyal OO visitors.

BTW, I'm the one with the cool chemical name in the conversation .

Carlito was in the mania

in piper's pit

Stunner!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Stunner!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Stunner!
now thats cool! says:
still cool on the mic and made a good impression
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Yes
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Read all the results, eh?
now thats cool! says:
yeah.
now thats cool! says:
you said it wont be good. it was a good mania as i said.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
I thought you didn't want to be spoiled!
now thats cool! says:
i did this time.
now thats cool! says:
and rajah is better than the crap sit eyou gave
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
http://www.onlineonslaught.com?
now thats cool! says:
http://www.rajah.com/base/2005/2835
now thats cool! says:
yeah
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
In your dreams!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Rajah is one of the crappiest sites around
now thats cool! says:
the fact that there is so much coverage in rajah and no coverage in onlineonslaught makes your statement pretty obvious
now thats cool! says:
Randy Orton, who lost to The Undertaker at last night’s WrestleMania, will be out for around 4 months. He requires surgery on a torn rotator cuff. Six months since more realistic then 4, however we’ll have to see what happens.


Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
now thats cool! says:
the fact that there is so much coverage in rajah and no coverage in onlineonslaught makes your statement pretty obvious

OO doesn't do PBP
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
And Rick Scacia's computer broke down, that's why the unavailability of the report
now thats cool! says:
what is PBP
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Play-by-play
now thats cool! says:
haha
now thats cool! says:
i am not saying play by play
now thats cool! says:
some news on the mania should be there.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
They'll all be there by tonight
now thats cool! says:
Although Carlito returned to the ring on SmackDown! this past Thursday, he is still three weeks away from a full recovery. This is why his match with John Cena was short-lived, and why he didn’t endure many spots which could further aggravate his shoulder injury
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Rajah runs a newsboard where newswhores post to advertise their site
now thats cool! says:
24 hours fter the event.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Rick runs his own site, has to do it himself
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Yeah, well, I prefer quality over shittiness
now thats cool! says:
i prefer quality but not having news on the mania isnt quality
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
No site had as good a preview of WM as OO
now thats cool! says:
http://rajah.com/base/index.php
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
No site!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Not a single!
now thats cool! says:
tell me what is crap from all the links on the site
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Not one!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Not uno!
now thats cool! says:
huh/
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
The Rock Makes Post-WrestleMania Party Appearence, Who Batista Hugged First
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Who Batista Hugged First!?!?!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
What crap!
now thats cool! says:
its a news. its a fact. not stories which arent true. its genuine information.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Yeah well, information that doesn't matter!
now thats cool! says:
dismissing a site such as rajah as crap just cos you prefer some other site which cant write mania reviews for 24 hours is pathetic.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
In a surprising note, following his World Heavyweight Title victory over rival Triple H, the first person on Batista’s list to hug was none other then Triple H’s father. Triple H’s mother was also at the show, situated alongside her husband on the front row.

Who cares?!?!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Usually, Scacia's report are posted immediately after a show
now thats cool! says:
well after breaking a world record, it would be interesting to know whom carl lewis hugged first.
now thats cool! says:
not useless.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Usually, Scacia's report are posted immediately after a show
now thats cool! says:
not excusable.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
And Scacia doen't report news, OO is an opinion site
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
If you want news, go to Rajah
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
If you want a detailed recap with COOL opinions, go to OO
now thats cool! says:
it does report news.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Yeah, to keep people like you in your pants
now thats cool! says:
you should no more about the site then.
now thats cool! says:
well you have extremely biased opinion calling some site without evidence.
now thats cool! says:
cheers
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Look man, you're talking to someone who has written for Rajah!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
And as a previous writer there, I can obviously say it's crap
now thats cool! says:
oh you cant. lol
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
If you think Rajah's cool, go to http://www.pwinsider.com - That's where Rajah gets his news from
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
PWInsider is the ultimate source for wrestling news
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
You'll find more new there than Rajah
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Rajah is nothing but a thief
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
PWInsider
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Check it out, dude
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
That's where details of who hugged Batista would've been firstb mentioned
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Even before Rajah
now thats cool! says:
ookay. pretty let down by a site yuo gave me 3 days ago tho
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
All details come first to PWI, then Rajah
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Originality or Thief?
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
I pick originality
now thats cool! says:
but you gave me some other site in the beginning. which is not all sufficient.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Look - I'm not aruging OO is good
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
I'm arguing Rajah is crap
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Because Rajah does nothing
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Absolutely nothing
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
It's just stupid 15-year old reporters stealing news from PWI
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Rick Scacia does his own site
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
You just wait for a couple of hours
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Then check out Scacia's report, and then honestly tell me whether or not that's the best report of WM or not, okay?!?!
now thats cool! says:
if i had to wait, i would see the show 13 days later on tv
now thats cool! says:
its stupid to not have a report cos your computer broke down
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Hear this!!! Scacia's PPV reports are done 15 minutes after every show - This one's not done because of some technical error!
now thats cool! says:
if cricinfo said that, imagine what would happen.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Where would he write it then??!?!?
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Your computer?!?!

Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Cricinfo is a professional site
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
OO is a site run by a guy, who works for a REAL company!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
He has a REAL job!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Unlike the reporters at Rajah!
now thats cool! says:
unlike you.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
If his computer is broke, well, would you send him an airticket, so that he can come to your place and write a report on your stupid computer?!?!
now thats cool! says:
all news sites copy from each other?
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Yes
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
All
now thats cool! says:
any other damn computer.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
PWI is the only site
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Which comes up with the news
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Check any wrestling site, you'll see the same news as Rajah

Tazz and Cole feel they have put in enough work to be recognized as a great commentating team, so much that they feel they are above any type of criticism. One source says they are “miserable” to be around and seem somewhat bitter.

Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Everything on OO is original!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Everything!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
You might want to go read their Year In Reviews
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
And tell me whether they're not the best pieces of columns ever
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
I can't believe you fell for Rajah's stupid site
now thats cool! says:
i didnt fall for it
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Because the stuff you see there is on every site out there!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Rajah's nothing special
now thats cool! says:
it was a better alternative to your excellent OO for 24 hours
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
He has all the stuff that others do
now thats cool! says:
the news
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Well, OO is excellent, there's not a single doubt about it
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Just wait for a couple of hours, see the report
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Then they judge for yourself
now thats cool! says:
you miss the point sadly.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
And then consider the fact that that detailed a report Rick does within 15 minutes of a PPV everyt single time!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
I don't, you do!
now thats cool! says:
in the internet if you delay 24 hours, yuo lose people who go to your site.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
What makes Rajah special?!?!

now thats cool! says:
specially during a period like wmXXI
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
No you don't! Not when you're so damn good!
now thats cool! says:
specially cos it shows irresponsibility
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
You're accusing Rick Scaica or irresponsibility?
now thats cool! says:
you missed the point as i said.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
The best writer, the most dedicated wrestling writer on the net?!?!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Irresponsible?!?!

Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Dude, you can't do three profiles in three weeks
now thats cool! says:
irresponsible to his readers who want to see a report and have to go to another site for it.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
He does three huge articles in one week
now thats cool! says:
my lack of work doesnt compensate for his.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Why?
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
He has a JOB!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
J
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
O
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
B
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Job > Exams
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
http://www.onlineonslaught.com/feat...roadtowm4.shtml
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Go to that!
now thats cool! says:
so do i. but if i missed the main article on a site, it would be higly poor
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Go to that!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Isn;t that the most awesome preview ever?!?!
now thats cool! says:
after the event why to road to WM
now thats cool! says:
see you miss the point and i cant believe you are defending the guy here.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Well, CW isn't that updated either
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Cricinfo > Cricketweb?!?!

Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Hell no!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Because we've got the forums!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
You're missing the point!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Not every site is the same!
now thats cool! says:
okay tell me one thing.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Okay
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Ask me that thing
now thats cool! says:
i want a report after the main event. i go to the site. i dont find a report. no news. every other site on the internet has a report. would i not think this site is crappy if i don know any thing of the past reputation of the site
now thats cool! says:
if CW didnt do a report of the world cup finals withing 24 hours, what would externals feel of it.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Well, after India v Pakistan, you go to CW, you don't find a report until when I do it the next day, do you stop visiting?!?!?!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
No
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Because you come here for the forums!
now thats cool! says:
its not just a raw or smack down. its the Wrestle Mania!
now thats cool! says:
biggest t hing in wrestling.
now thats cool! says:
but i wont go tere for articles then again would i
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Dude, you're obviously missing the point that is he does it for every PPV
now thats cool! says:

Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Well, you'd be pretty dumb to judge a site by just one glitch
now thats cool! says:
he does it for every paper view. he didnt for th ebiggest paper viewo f the year. he cant compensate for it. accept it.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
HOW IN THE BLUE HELL IS HE SUPPOSED TO DO IT IF HIS COMPUTER ISN'T WORKING!
now thats cool! says:
its a pretty big one at that.
now thats cool! says:
haha
now thats cool! says:
there are no cyber cafes or some thing?
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Nope, none in USA
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
No cyber cafes in USA!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
And using your site's FTP on other computers ins't safe enough
now thats cool! says:
oh he could go to a friend's place if he is running such a site
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Ask James, if he does that!

Neil | FM 2005 - Grecians in Europe has been added to the conversation.

now thats cool! says:
Neil settle some thing.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Yeah, at 1 in the night, he'll go to his friend's place?!?!?!

Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Neil, you're busy, just a quick judgement should do here...
now thats cool! says:
CW doesnt do the report of the world cup finals for more than 24 hours after the event just because James' computer doesnt work.
now thats cool! says:
wouldnt that be irresponsible. for the biggest match in 4 years.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Site 1: Awesome articles, misses a report of a major event due to a technical problem
Site 2: Crappy site, steals everything, but gets it done on time
Which would you prefer, Neil?
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Well, other people write for James
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
James has given us a Berita account
now thats cool! says:
dont bring rajah into this. and try and deviate.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
James doesn't need to be online to report the final
now thats cool! says:
whoever has to.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Rick Scacia does his own reports!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
His own!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Own!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
O
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
w
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
n!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Site 1: Awesome articles, misses a report of a major event due to a technical problem
Site 2: Crappy site, steals everything, but gets it done on time
Which would you prefer, Neil?
Add to that that the site #1 does the reports regularly, with the best details!
now thats cool! says:
if cricinfo didnt do the reports just cos the reporter's computer broke down, it would be hilarious.
Neil | FM 2005 - Grecians in Europe says:
okay if you would both wipe the rabid froth from your mouths and start again slowly so i understand what youre on about
now thats cool! says:
okay
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Site 1: Awesome articles, misses a report of a major event due to a technical problem
Site 2: Crappy site, steals everything, but gets it done on time
Which would you prefer, Neil?

This Neil!
now thats cool! says:
i will speak first
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
No!
now thats cool! says:
if sudeep doesnt interrupt.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
You won't!
now thats cool! says:
why
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
I'll speak first
now thats cool! says:
you are afraid
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
I'm defending something
now thats cool! says:
i started
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
You're just accusing
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Okay the go first
now thats cool! says:
no i am not
now thats cool! says:
i have a point.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
But make sure Neil hears everything
now thats cool! says:
yeah sure.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Judge Neil, here he goes...
now thats cool! says:
Sudeep reckoned x site is the best wrestling sit e on the internet

Mr. Sexy has been added to the conversation.

now thats cool! says:
i go there for a wrestling report of wrestle mania.
now thats cool! says:
i dont find a report 24 hours after the biggest event of the year and no apparent reason explaining the same.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
11 hours and 45 minutes
now thats cool! says:
so i go to another site and find a report which may well be the crappiest site in the world.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
You'll find one in 15 hours, for sure
now thats cool! says:
so do i not having reason to believe the site x is irresopnsible to not do a report and not explain on why it hasnt done it when Sudep claims its the best wrestling site.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
now thats cool! says:
i dont find a report 24 hours after the biggest event of the year and no apparent reason explaining the same.

LIes

It's been only almost 12 hours
now thats cool! says:
and i have to go to a site called rajah in depsair which in Sudeep's words is rap
now thats cool! says:
crap*
now thats cool! says:
12 hours when ever other site on the net has information on the event.
Neil | FM 2005 - Grecians in Europe says:
surely if theres a technical issue, thats a perfectly viable explanation for there not being any update..
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
See there
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
And it gives the most detailed reports
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
The most detailed
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Better than watching live
now thats cool! says:
you said the guy who does the report has his computer broken down.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Neil you couldn't match your cricket reports with his wrestling reports
now thats cool! says:
on the internet you want fast news as well. not just detailed news.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
The guy is the OWNER!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
The guy runs everything!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Okay then, you might also want to consider that OO is a sister site of http://www.wrestleline.com which had the best PBP for the event
now thats cool! says:
its his poor management then that he has responsibility so skewed that in case of a glitch there is no report.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
You're freaking accusing OO of poor management?!?!
now thats cool! says:
i rest my case.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Okay
now thats cool! says:
yeah.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Neil, should I go ahead with the defence?
Neil | FM 2005 - Grecians in Europe says:
this is all hitting 10.0 on the don't-care scale
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Take this example then, an example of cricket maybe?
Neil | FM 2005 - Grecians in Europe says:
10.5
now thats cool! says:
now wrestle line is a good site.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Because Rick Scacia made WRESTLELINE what it is!
Neil | FM 2005 - Grecians in Europe says:
11.0
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Neil, just consider this cricket example and we'll let you go
now thats cool! says:
yuo said OO is the best. It apparently isnt if i have to go to other sites for wrestling stuff on the same things.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
now thats cool! says:
yuo said OO is the best. It apparently isnt if i have to go to other sites for wrestling stuff on the same things.

Doesn't happen everytime
now thats cool! says:
like CW is the best for forums. so i dont go to any other site for cricket forums.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Yes, OO is the best for opinions!
now thats cool! says:
you didnt mention that.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Not ridiculous news!
now thats cool! says:
you said best best.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
And reports as well
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
It's the best for reports as well
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Okay, Neil consider this...

World Cup final discussion going on on CW, the server crashes, would you never visit CW again?!?!
now thats cool! says:
it loses out on responsibility though big time compared to even crap sites like rajah.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Answer that Pratyush too!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
World Cup final discussion going on on CW, the server crashes, would you never visit CW again?!?!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
World Cup final discussion going on on CW, the server crashes, would you never visit CW again?!?!
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
World Cup final discussion going on on CW, the server crashes, would you never visit CW again?!?!
now thats cool! says:
if i am a new visiter it will be unlikely.

Neil | FM 2005 - Grecians in Europe has left the conversation.

RIP Pope John Paul II has been added to the conversation.

http://www.wrestleline.com/columns/...cha033005.shtml
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Mr. Casson could help maybe?
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
World Cup final discussion going on on CW, the server crashes, would you never visit CW again?!?!
now thats cool! says:
no he cant.
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
Okay, don't visit OO then
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
You'll miss everythign!
now thats cool! says:
nothing can make you see the point if you dont want to.
now thats cool! says:
cheers.

now thats cool! has left the conversation.

Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
What I'll do is post this on the forums wrestling thread, and see what people who've visited both sites have to say
Dinitrosopentamethylene Tetramine says:
If they care

No...I think the what was for "what the fuck happened to my brain cells?" because I know a couple of mine committed suicide after reading the first couple of lines.


Figure Foreskin - 4-4-2005 at 08:46 PM

Okay, I've read the whole thing (okay I scanned it) and the gyst of it seems to be:

1. Rick's recap isn't up yet.
2. Sudeep Popat has a friend who thinks OO sucks because of that.
3. Sudeep Popat defends OO
4. Sudeep Popat's friend lists every website on the internet claiming they are all better than OO.
5. Sudeep Popat defends OO.
...etc.

And there's your Sudeep Popat's giant post recap.


(For the future Sudeep, you can just post "Where the hell is the recap, Rick?" and we'll get what you're driving at. We're not all dumb loutish Americans that need everything spelled out in the most elaborate way possible...some of us are dumb loutish Canadians)

Okay then, you might also want to consider that OO is a sister site of http://www.wrestleline.com which had the best PBP for the event "

OH HELL YEAH, mo fos! WrestleLine.com: rockin' the socks off India's wrestling fan base since 1999!

(And yes, we did have "PBP" last night, in the form of a live updating recap of the show).

Mostly I just meant what as in



What?


Sudeep Popat - 4-5-2005 at 03:30 AM

Okay, I'll cut a long story short from now on.

But yes, why isn't the report still up? Almost 24 hours since the conclusion of the event now...


folby - 4-5-2005 at 03:47 AM

Because The Rick is long winded.


whyme - 4-5-2005 at 03:55 AM

because deep down he is hurt that his boy orton lost

Well, its Tuesday 10:20am ET and still no updates. Wonder if some emergency or computer issues arose.


Sudeep Popat - 4-5-2005 at 03:24 PM

No Monday's OO either...


borntorun - 4-5-2005 at 04:09 PM

He missed our regular Tuesday morning The View brunch date.


nilesanderson - 4-5-2005 at 04:15 PM

Yeah, I'm wondering where The Rick is too. I always like to read his PPV recaps with match reviews. And I never miss the monday, wednesday and friday updates when they happen. What's the deal?


Sudeep Popat - 4-5-2005 at 05:39 PM

Yes, my over-excitement for getting the report is because I told this friend about OO's awesome reports, and he's not being convinced OO's the best wrestling site on the net.

I'm worried too, I've been a regular OO visitor ever since it started. I know Rick won't go so long without an update. I just hope it's nothing serious that's keeping him away.


Canadian Bulldog - 4-5-2005 at 05:55 PM

Fact: The last site update was late Friday, early Saturday morning.

Fact: Pope John Paul II died Saturday morning.

Coincidence? Obviously not. You can draw your own conclusions.... we know that Jeb was the "pope of online onslaught", so perhaps The Rick was "the pope of everything else except OO."

If this is true, rest.... in..... peaccccccccceeeee (GONG!)


2HoT - 4-5-2005 at 06:19 PM

I just hope it wasn't a citrus-related emergency like running out of limes or something.

Actually, he's had recaps up as fast as the night of the actual payperview, but it's been a couple of days now. I'm sure he'll have an explanation for the delay, though.

OR...

Have we heard anything from Erin yet?... Hmm... Maybe they finally hooked up!

Really though, it would be understandable if Rick decided to take a sabbatical, although I know he'd let us suckas know first.

Figure Foreskin - 4-5-2005 at 06:45 PM

Yeah, this is weird.

Weirder still that Rick's peeps don't even know whats up. Jeb, Matt, Bulldog, Erin? Does anybody know what's up?

Denny?

PyroFalkon?

.....anybody?


zimm7778 - 4-5-2005 at 07:11 PM

Actually I thought about something later, I seem to remember Rick being catholic (although, I dont know that for sure) is it possible he is mourning the Pope's death and doesnt feel like now is time to discuss wrestling?


Laner - 4-5-2005 at 08:21 PM

I don't recall him ever stating he was Catholic. On the contrary, he tends to take potshots at organized religion every now and then.

Dammit, it's the neverending stream of cracks like this that are enough to make me feel bad that I wussed out on an idea I had for a Very Special Forums-Only April Fools Prank. But for the record, I can state with authority that Erin's carefully-maintained 1000-mile Rick Buffer Zone remains intact and inviolate. For now...

Also, I can report that the Pope's death, if anything, came as a mild relief to me: it's not like he hadn't been on death's door for the past several months, and I was just kind of happy that it came quickly and easily (because the second I started reading about the Pope's "feeding tube" around the middle of last week, my brain nearly imploded at all the retarded possibilities). Additionally: I may be a confirmed Roman Catholic, but I'm not exactly practicing, and in fact, am secretly hoping to figure out a spectacular way to get excommunicated some day.

Of course, it's talk like that which probably brought the wrath of god down upon me on Sunday, resulting in a frightening 36 hours or so in which I honestly thought that I'd have to reformat the hard drive on my PC. The story, basically, is this:

On Sunday afternoon, I picked up a nasty little computer virus. I wish I could say that I got it off PWInsider or something (I like Dave Scherer better than any of those other jack-offs, but his is the only site that, if I make the mistake of ever visiting it, causes my MS MediaPlayer to become infected and unusable; boo on that!)... but I'm assuming nobody would believe that, since we all know where the naughtiest of trojans and spyware come from, and it ain't from reading up on Papal Succession at www.vatican.va. But I also have just about the most basic, non-perverse tastes on the planet, so I usually don't run into any serious problems on my periodic surveys of available materials from more-or-less reputable sources.

And yet, somehow I managed to click the wrong link or something. No big deal, right? The firewall and anti-virus software will leap into action to save me, right? Not quite... in fact, the security software managed to make things worse. Instead of allowing the trojan(s) to install completely, I ended up with a bunch of my Windows system files getting infected, but then my software preventing certain registry/start-up entries to be changed at the same time. Which then meant that the infected Windows system files wouldn't work correctly, since some of the associated other things it was trying to call to HAD been blocked. Explorer.exe and others actually wouldn't run AT ALL. It basically amounted to my computer booting up, telling me that Windows couldn't load and my system was fatally damaged, and then restarting and repeating the process. Even safe mode wouldn't work. I called the one tech dork I know, and he said he didn't know what caused it, but that I was basically gonna have to wipe everything and start from scratch.

For reasons that I shan't burden you with, I considered this an absolutely unaccpetable alternative. So with an aggressive combination of getting super-duper-mega wasted so I could try to forget this problem and enjoy WM21/RAW/24 in good moods, and doing all kinds of research into my problem and realizing none of the literature addressed my rather unique fucked-up-the-ass half-a-virus, I began trying to fix the problem myself, despite no actual knowledge of the inner workings of Windows or PCs.

And somehow, magically, around 2:30am last night, I ended up with my PC back to near normal! The lesson kids: if something is broke, get super-wasted and play with it till you fix it! Honestly: sometimes I amaze even myself... call my unpleasant to look at and even more unpleasant to talk to, if you must: but I refuse to be modest about this big ol' brain I got on me! Tech dorks telling me "Nope, you're screwed"? I showed them! I should, like, go work for the NSA or something... it doesn't matter if I don't know dick about a subject, just gimme a few hours and a bottle of whiskey, and I *will* figure it out! You people don't even know the half of it, but let's just say that this is not the first time I've solved a little riddle like this with next-to-zero useful starting information!

Anyway, now 12 hours after my victorious return to full functionality, and a mere 48 hours removed from one of the biggest scares of my life, you know... the Rest Of The Story.

Now I gotta figure out how to fake my way through recaps for RAW and WM21... I watched both under the impression that I wouldn't bother recapping them, since it'd be days before I just gave up and did the reformat/reinstall. And on top of not watching them with my "Recap Eye," I also was more than a little buzzed for each. Now, it's soon enough that I still want to go back and do Mania for posterity, and I'm pretty much obligated to do RAW, right? Just know that I'll be phoning it in, folks.

Thanks for all the heartfelt concern, though... I honestly didn't realize it'd be that big a deal: I really only missed one fricking day, and I had people worried? It's nice to be loved, I guess....

maclen - 4-5-2005 at 10:04 PM

Bless you Rick...


rk - 4-5-2005 at 10:16 PM

What? All this because he was looking for something to jerk off to?

I feel so unclean.


Figure Foreskin - 4-5-2005 at 11:00 PM

Well, from the sound of it it was probably just some tame thing with two topless chicks making out or something. I really don't think Rick's into www.scat.horsepenis.com/barelylegal/transvestite/pissing/midgets.html or anything like that.

I'm a member of that website by the way. If anybody needs a password, I can hook you up.


Attitude Adjuster - 4-5-2005 at 11:17 PM

Come on, we all know it was simply www.trishandivorygetiton.com that ripped up The Rick's computer.

No Molly?


OORick - 4-7-2005 at 12:06 AM

Yeah, no Molly? Ivory is *soooo* 2000. It just hasn't been the same for me and Ivory since she annoyed the living crap out of everything that moved at the All-Day-Long WM special that year... you give me a choice between two distasteful things I have to wake up to on Sunday mornings, and I pick "Church" over "hyperactive chick who doesn't realize I need a whole carafe of cranberry juice and some peace and quiet more than I need my own live version of Regis and Kelly" every time. Molly wins!

My infatuation with Ivory lingered in a diminished capacity for maybe another 2 years, but was killed for good following an entertaining anecdote from the Pillman 2001 event in Cinci that also involves Victoria and William Regal.

That anecdote? Shall not be spun here. Perhaps someday, as it is a much more hilarious and non-me-looking-stupid anecdote than the run-in I had with Raven, and the world could use more of those. But I'd rather get in and tell it right, which would take some boozing and about 2000 words. So not now. Perhaps you can all have some fun trying to envision exactly how The Rick, Regal, Victoria, and Ivory all fit together?!?

Instead, I'll just note that if rk wasn't asleep at the switch here, then you'd ALL know about my one and only perverted fetish and know that I get my cheap thrills at:

www.dudesnamedrichardgropingandlungingathotatlantacoeds.com

Christ, do I have to do *everything* around here? Pay the bills, write the columns, *and* make the funniest jokes that come at my own expense?

OOMatt - 4-7-2005 at 07:12 AM

Man, I dominate the Mania predictions without even having seen Smackdown, and you can't even give that a mention?

You're slipping, sir.

rk - 4-7-2005 at 01:21 PM

Well, I was going to add that we all really need to chip in and get Erin a plane ticket to Dayton so you could have some "tension release" and prevent future "technical difficulties", but the joke seemed way too obvious.

The running gag is so much less fun when you're not only playing along, but leading the charge.


Figure Foreskin - 4-7-2005 at 07:08 PM

Maybe it's time to retire "Rick hearts Erin" and move on to something new...

Jeb hearts Bulldog

Who's with me!?


Attitude Adjuster - 4-8-2005 at 12:08 PM

Three way!

Jeb hearts Bulldog hearts...

...Orton!
