I'm not the most active poster (though I do lurk a lot), but I'm pretty sure Charlie Reneke's heel turn/departure has to make the set.
--Charlie's flameout--Whatever time period at the end of this past summer when we all had a collective rage fit and every thread was turning into bitter flame battles (me vs. Chin, Chin vs. Dougie, Me vs. Bad Chad, and a few more). --The introduction of Scott Says--The Raw live thread from after Mania--The blog crashing after MITB 2011--Baked: Jesse Baker's greatest hits--The Banning of Elvy --And of course, the first live thread I showed up drunk to.
It would be 9,992 flame wars and 8 Jesse Baker posts.
MRobert21's raw recap with the 25 different spellings of "limousine" will always be my favorite. That and his nickname for Bobby Lashley, Black Lesnar.
I would happily read a collection of Jesse Baker's ideas so far. You have to admit, that guy has one Hell of a creative imagination.
Is that the same guy that coined the term Blandy Boreton? God he was bad.
Who bribed Kane too intimidate you into saying that
That I know of, both of those names have been around for a while. I love Blandy Boreton, but only if you call him Son of Blah Boreton.
Me and Chin went at it pretty good when Lawler had the heart attack. Any one of my favorite posts was when I described your drunk posts as a Briscoe Brothers promo in written form.
How about Nipple H (for Stephanie)? Can we credit him with that one? (I had to use the magic of Google to find that one.)
Charlies pissy pants depature post telling everyone off was legendary.
How about the blog hitting 1 million views just for a milestone sake
I came on here JUST to post about that guy and "Blandy Boreton" and saw it was already taken care of.
Nipple H was born on WrestleCrap years and years ago, wasn't it? Well before this guy foisted it upon the BoD.
Yeah, that one has been around for quite a while.
I think my writing reviews for a few months in 2009, stopping, then returning in 2012 ranks somewhere around moment 9,947 out of the top 10,000.
...and with this discussion, the BoD officially jumps the shark.Nice knowing you people. Last one out turn off the lights, please.
I learned it while dancing with Mark last April.
Elvy trolling us brought a level of excitement and bonding between members of WMR like no other time. Sure the guy was a troll but maybe he was just working us to become a more close knit community? Checking the blog after Elvy posted use to make my day... sigh.. yes my life is that empty.
Kind of a weird topic...Either Charlie or MRoberts I guess.Elvy never bothered me all that much. Some (SOME) of what he said was pretty reasonable.The total deconstruction of Chad Bryant was a more recent highlight. I wonder when he'll be back?
This is all a little too meta for me
I'd assume is off somewhere still trying to learn how to do a snapmare takeover.
In a barn with Verne Gagne no doubt
First time commenter, LONG time lurker...been following Scott since Wrestleline, I think, and used to write myself for Rantsylvania. I think this might be the best site Scott's ever had. My comment though is: what is it that makes writing about wrestling make people go a little nuts? Wasn't there a guy who had gender reassignment or something? Sean Shannon or something like that?
I honestly don't really remember Elvy. I remember he made posts and that he was into TNA, but I don't remember anything in particular that he said. Anybody have any highlights?
Yeah, Sean Shannon is the guy you're thinking of. I still remember his last post, ending with something to the effect of "In conclusion, fuck you all". To which I thought "Fuck you too, I won't miss ya!"
I don't think that he's actually gone through with the surgery, but he lives full time as a woman now.. Yeah..I've been loosely following his personal blog ever since his meltdown, for reasons that I've never quite isolated.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMN2SFLI-UQ&feature=results_videoKeep in mind, that's the only video he's uploaded in his channel. I'm willing to bet that the random posts every couple months or so where I new guy calls Scott fat and talks a whole bunch of shit and is quickly banned (like the one with photoshopping his face on a naked fat chick) are him.
Yes, god, I remember that exact last post. Man, something about this crazy world of wrestling gets in some people's heads. Charlie's flame out was pretty fantastically nuts, too, from what I remember.
Oh good, it's not just me.
I somehow missed that one, or just forgot about it. Anyone have a link?
Oh my god lol.What a WEIRD thing to do. Then it starts repeating and you realize he has no clue what he's doing lol.
Those are all good. We were a tad hard on your first drunken appearance, me included, my apologies to you.-I would add Caliber's "cracked" fiasco.-John Sorrow/Danny Treo...damn that dude was a giant troll. Some conspiracy theorists think that guy is Dougie now.-The thread with that guest article/email: "The Truth really is..." or whatever that was called. Chin nearly lost his mind on that one.-Chin losing his mind in general at times. Always a funny sight, especially with the "wrestling is for little kids" rants. I love ya Chin :-)
Then there was that one guy, Eric S. ... good recapper, but the columns became a sort of diary about his job prospects and it got a bit worrying after awhile. Hope he's alright these days.
It's not really a conspiracy theory; John Sorrow and Dougie have the same IP address. It's just that he behaves himself much more now.
He's heavily involved with Anonymous. So...no.
End of an era, if you will.
lol, I didn't want to just come out and say it, but yeah, I knew that was him. Same snarky style.
The Fuj's ripping of Chad Bryant was glorious and some of the funniest posts ever on this site.
Guy's got some mental problems, right? Talk about a fuckin' loser...
I'd love a thread for stuff like that, permanently linked to the top of the page. A little BoD history thread, so when new people come along they can get a sense of some of the crazy stuff that goes down. Although maybe that is a little meta.
I remember that guy, yeah. And there was one guy who used to work at a meat processing plant, I think? We need a "where are they now?" for old wrestling recappers.
Yes. he was on a serious role in the condemning of 'Not-On-The-List" Chad Bryant. Once he posted the YouTube clips of his 'ringwork' and 'promos' it was probably a bit of an easy target though.
Maybe he is like 13 years old? I just can't imagine that was made by an adult with an intact mind.
Oh god. I completely forgot about Magnum's nervous breakdown.
I don't think so, he was around back in the Livejournal days.
that explains so much
Thanks to flair4dagold for reminding me. Magnum DA's letter to Abraham Washington and Charlie-esque departure was hysterical.
I've toyed with the idea of doing a FAQ for the site to explain the in-jokes and types of e-mail that are most likely to get answered and suchlike.
Welcome to the party!
Maybe he thought by adding 37 numbers to the end of his name, he'd be inconspicuous.
Will you do a rundown of all the major players, like with the old RSPW FAQ?
Thanks...it's gotten to the point where I mostly watch WWE so I'm able to keep up with the Blog of Doom, rather then the other way around, so it's cool to finally be joining the conversation.
Here is a link to Charlie's "Goodbye" message -- I can't recall if there was more after this or not:http://www.rspwfaq.com/2011/09/16/my-william-shatner-moment/
I missed that completely..
It's shame you can't read the comments on the old posts anymore. And I think I was one of the few who dug Charlie's reviews.
Yeah, Charlie never bothered me that much, but I can see how he totally rubbed folks the wrong way and his departure was sad and hilarious at the sametime.I also recall him losing his shit over the 2nd UT-HHH WM match (counting WM17 as their first of course). He posted like 3 threads trying to convince people how shitty it was and how stupid you were if you thought it was good. Good times, lol.
it was WAY TOO LONGER THAN THAT
you missed out on PURE GOLD TEXAS TEA
Its like the Bizarro Cornette face montage Maffew didBut still I cant stop laughing.
Will you finally clarify your stance on plugs?
Yeah, I didn't mind his reviews at all, I just found him incredibly abrasive. He had a tendency to pull stuff completely out of his ass to support his arguments too, just totally wacky made up stuff.
How you can not remember Elvy?He single handedly made Michael Bradley relevant on the BoD with the Pro-TNA comments.
I was thinking that too.. I think this might have been the warmup. I miss the comments!
Especially after Elvy got banned and went to 411mania and would post as us and make pro-tna comments.
I think Scott has them all archived on his computer, although I don't know that it is practical to restore them.
And there you have it, that right there is a thing that exists.
Still never got the review of my choice for being the millionth visitor.
I know, it's weird because I remember people talking about him constantly and I know he was on the board at the same time I was, but I somehow missed his epicness I guess.
Nipple H was wrestlecrap proboards circa 2001-2003
You forgot Goldturd
you blocked him out.
Really? That's just fucking ridiculous.
In that case, we need to get Herb Kunze to come in here and do a guest spot.
Didn't he also call Bobby Lashley, Black Lesnar? ha ha.
His old columns are still archived on rspw.org.
Oh yes.For months on 411mania or IP Elvy would post as Fuj/Andrew/MagnumDA and spout out pro-TNA comments so we get flamed by the reatrds there. I cant even post on 411mania or i get flamed.
Super-Meta but any chance to put myself over.-The ascension of the Ham N Eggers/Johnny Come latelys (Jobber/zanadude/Jef vinson/David LONGASSNAME et al)-Jesse Baker: Blog MVP candidate-Caliber Winfled/Cracked article-Pro-TNA Elvy-RAW 1000 thread-The self-destruction of the Catalyst Chad Bryant-Chin and his kids vs. whomever-The tag team tournament (we need to do another Scott)-Running off Kyle Fitta
Up until they finally got Disqus a couple months ago 411 had the worst comment setup on the net. Just a complete joke.
The Hulk Hogan sex tape post was by far the funniest in BoD history. Just looked it up and it was on the old site so it looks like the all the jokes are lost.
Just looked it up and skimmed it and that definitely belongs in any BoDHOF.
gimme a link so i can laugh again
http://www.rspwfaq.net/2012/05/over-limit-open-thread.html#I think this was the first time Drunk Murphy was unleashed. Or at least it was the funniest.
Still can't believe that I totally missed that, I'm usually around.http://www.rspwfaq.net/2012/08/markssmarks.htmlFuj:and it begins.. Jobber vs. MagnumRound 1.*grabs popcorn*Magnum:Fuck you, Fuj.
Oh god that guy was such an asshole!
Wow that actually explains a lot
Come on, this sort of blatant self-promoting video is all Scott Keith. He probably made it himself. ;)
That sucks that the comments are lost. If there was a BOD HOF, I'd read your comments from that thread as to why you should be a first ballot HOF. You had me spitting up my drink. No, that was not meant as a reference to the Hogan sex tape ;-)
I actually just re read all my comments from that thread because they are still saved in my disqus comment history. I think my favorite was "It was actually a Bret Hart sextape, but Bret couldn't finish so Hulk had to come in to send the fans home happy, brother."
Same guy I think.
"Caliber's next blog post, The Top 4 Times I Drunk Posted In A Live Thread."-cultstatuslol, I listed Caliber's "cracked" incident as one of the most memorable moments on the BOD.
MitB 2011, where everyone was submitting their guesses as to what would happen, fun times :)
I love how Caliber had nothing to do with it but I still used Drunk Murphy to take a random shot at him.
Who among us wouldn't buy The WrestleLine Era DVD? Hosted by Rick Scaia, of course.
Or it clearly had the best. The sheer rancid stupidity of the comments section was glorious. I think my favorite example was the 411 trolls outing one of the writers as a sex offender, only to find that it was a different person with the same name, but by then no one cared and they just beat it in to the ground. Also, the endless RVD one shot deal, Paul Roma, and Undertaker's dong memes were alternately awesome and awful.
On the plus side, at least he didn't use that damn .Fun song.
Just read it again.Murphy's rants were funny, but my shit was the nail in the coffinhttp://www.rspwfaq.net/2012/08/the-smark-rant-for-tna-impact081612.html
Yeah, I always enjoyed his tidbits and his posts. He was a pretty well known guy back in the day and one of the first people I really talked to online back in 1995 when I got 'smartened' up. I think he fell out of love with wrestling though and moved on to other things.
That was you at your very best, Fuj. Of course, Chad didn't help his own case by being such a shitty worker that even the CZW "wrestlers" would be embarrassed to be in the same ring with him.
Looks like I'm never getting any sleep if these old threads keep popping up. LOL @ maffew's line It sounds like the plot of Metal Gear Solid 2.''The Patriots implanted the idea of writing the article into the subconscious of America!''
chin/chan at his best... taking on @mr_e_mahn @jordan and others.http://www.rspwfaq.net/2012/08/family-guy.html#disqus_thread
That's right! He actually did one using my name too now that I think about it. I guess I did block him out lol
He decided to wear his sister's angora sweater for Halloween...then one day, it was no longer Halloween.
For me, it was probably Charlie Reneke going all Batista on us and quitting, calling us losers for watching half-naked men rolling around. What made it even better was that nobody gave two shits about him leaving.
I fondly remember the first thread where Johnny C went on and on about the greatness of Ludvig Borga, suggested he should have gone over Bret for the WWF title at WMX because he was a "real wrestler." The only time I have ever seen someone categorically deny that they know anyone from Finland. Also there was this weird period where a lot of us must have all been out of work at the same time where there were massive rebooking threads on the blog every day, my favourite was rebooking Survivor Series 92 with traditional Survivor Series matches. Good times.
Yeah, Herb's stuff was awesome. I had fun reading his old rants when I was in college- he'd already mostly stopped posting them by then, however, and he eventually just vanished from the 'net.
His articles were a bit more involved than that, and had multiple parts, but yeah, I hated the whole "so I had another job interview" thing. I think he actually HAD a job, but he was constantly looking for another one. Kind of too self-involved diary-writing for my tastes.I don't know what happened to him- his last article mentioned nothing about him leaving- it's like he just vanished from the web.
Makes sense- I read an article online about him actively protesting $cientology, because they deny the existence of mental health conditions that he himself has.
The BOD TAG TOURNAMENT~!!!!! Demo's should have beaten LOD...
Almost a threadjack - but can someone who'se been around for ages tell me what happened to the Scotsman?
LOL I know right? This is a good one. I love the idea that someone suggested that Scott must intentionally bring in mentally unstable writers so that when they flame out, he looks like a champ. Seriously it's like one after another, guys losing their minds.
Look at these old farts reminiscing about the good 'ole days.
Jesse Baker reappearing on the blog about 4-5 years ago was a big moment. He used to be Scott Keith's biggest Stan until Keith started writing for Wrestleline exclusively and he went batty like Glenn Close in Fatal Attraction, claiming Scott sold out. Then he then hooked up with Hyatte's entourage as a hanger on and ended up outlasting Flea (retired) and Josh Grutman (turned into a crazy Stan who was even worse than Baker) before Hyatte vanished and Baker ended up crawling back to Keith. As someone who remembered Jesse back in his "Judas12" days on Rantsylvania and Smarks, I was shocked as hell that Scott didn't banhammer him when he returned.
johnny c... wow.... forgot abt that guy.he was like number 2 troll behind dannytreo
downvoted cuz ur a johnny come lately.
He does some tech stuff for the blog, and finally reviewed WCW Thunder.
Ah, Flair, you do read my site. Otherwise you wouldn't know I always go Top 4 instead of Top 5. I am honored though to be thought of in a Greatest Hits way. Even if it is for people thinking I'm a complete hack who rips-off other websites. But I still stand my ground, I came up with the idea for it while I was reading the article. That counts! It does, dammit!
My favorites were Charlie's departure, obviously. The Hogan sex-tape article, Kyle leaving in a huff because he couldn't handle it [hey, I just took a break. I'm like Jericho], the whole Cracked debacle with me, and after SummerSlam 2011. Scott had to shut down the blog for fear of another MiTB situation, and I remember the last thing he said was "just in case Stone Cold shows up and gives Punk a stunner after he wins, I'm closing the blog down" and low and behold, that's damn near what happened....wait...did Scott tell Nash to stick the winner?
Yeah, Kyle Fitta did the news. I think that was just bad timing, because it was right during Mania season and the switchover to the .net blog and people freaked out at all the change coming in at once.Magnum's ragequit over the AW rape joke was another great one, yeah.
That was my takedown goddamit! Fuj just came in with the assist.
Yeesh that was brutal. As always, I very much really was drunk. Reading that back, the harshest dig was from Blottie: "I wonder which of his parent's basements he's typing that from." At the time it wasn't true, but since me & the wife split, I needed somewhere to go, and Dad still has a spare room in the basement, so.... *shame*
Johnny C was a lot like dougie, in that they actually have their own opinions, strange and misguided though they may be, but they just don't know how to argue them without being a condescending troll. I pointed that out to Johnny C once, that I actually was interested in hearing what he had to say but it was so hard to handle with all the I AM RIGHT AND YOU ARE WRONG AND THAT IS THAT IN ALL CAPS shit. I don't remember seeing him around much after that so, I think, that's my kill.
I never got the big deal with Hyatte. Flea and Grut were both more talented than him, IMO.
Fuj's catch phrase getting over once others started aping it.
You need'nt stroke Fuj's ego, trust me, he'll get around to it...
My favorite was this one;"caliaber 's a usty aold count tooo, he unfirended me on VACce beook becasue I didnat't agreree with mhim bout SOUTH hpark. And CUCdz hesa a lyihg bitch whao thinks he;'as got muscles evanayt though I caoucld beat his masx mbencha or saquat any fuckain day."For the record, I didn't unfriend you. I also didn't post viagra adds, or like some stupid "fun fact of the day" crap on FB. And hey, I have muscles! Don't make my dad call your dad and force you to print a retraction! I'll do it!
Well you ended up not friends with me for a minute there, and I didn't unfriend you that I remember, so I think it had to have been you. As for the muscles, I'll contend that you could probably beat me on flat bench, because I try not to push too heavy on the chest and just do toning exercises (because my tits are big enough as it is and I want to shrink them, not grow them) but I will go toe to toe on legs with anyone on this board, no questions asked. I don't even leg press anymore because it's more of a pain in the ass to put 6 100-lb. plates on the rack than it is to do the reps.
I feel like I've had some solid blog contributions in the form of comments, but nothing memorable that stands out. I need my blog "Wrestlemania moment". (I'm pointing at the Blog of Doom header as say that)
What happened, is I had some bullshit virus that still fucks with my FB. Likes pages I've never seen, sometimes makes posts promoting odd shit, deletes friends and what have you. Honestly, you might take me in squats, although I've never squatted before. I work out in an apartment gym, which doesn't have a lot of stuff. But I am the king at leg extensions though. My bench record is 335lb so far. Hoping to make 350lb sometime soon
I think this Greatest Blog of Doom moment thread is the greatest Blog of Doom moment. And the Meta-Powers Explode!!!
Whatshisname's meltdown where he blamed the negative attitudes of wrestling fans getting him down...having written nothing but negative articles for the site.
I believe it, it's all kind of a blur for me though lol
Chad did that? Fuck man.
Oh man, so many fond memories of that thread. God bless you Caliber.
Lol WMR is the website I run... typo, I meant the rspwfaq blog!
Yeah. He posted something as me saying something to the effect of "Check out rspwfaq, I'm totally trolling Chad Bryant and getting him so pissed off!". I don't even know how to use a newsfeed site. The really funny thing is, with an action like that, I truly thought the kid was like, 16, 17 at the absolute oldest. I was FLOORED to find out he was 32 at the time. I mean, good God, what kind of guy in his 30's pulls shit like that?
''I DIDN'T PAY FOR STING VS. JEFF HARDY BUT I FELT IT WAS THE MOST OFFENSIVE THING EVER'' amused me to no end.
Well you've seen the people who hang out here. And we're the ELITE. Scary thoughts, huh?
Obviously you guys were never on RSPW....
He was really funny at times but started believing his own press and thought his stuff was some brilliant thesis on internet culture. He wrote this column called "The Taking of HHH" that was damn near unreadable but he treated like the Gettysburg Address.
Hyatte was and is pathetic. He was still trying to rag on Scott a year or two ago in a fictional masterpiece he wrote. The massive disproportionate belief of his own importance was awful. He'd then try to play it cool like he didn't care... only to write a a super serious column where he thought he was changing the world. All of his online "feuds" reeked of douche-osity as well.
PROTIP: you can have a penis and still be a woman. there are plenty of trans people who can't afford surgery, and others who just plain don't want it. that doesn't make them any "lesser" or w/etl;dr gender ain't what's between your legs. it's turned out to be a lot more complicated than we thought!oh yeah, and the whole "gender dysphoria = crazy person" line i've seen on here before is pretty fucking gross. even if sean shannon fit that description, that's not a valid reason why. just saiyan
PROTIP: Fuck off dickhead.I didn't say that anyone was lesser than anyone.Neither did I imply causation between gender and mental state. Sean Shannon is nuts. Also, transexual. Go troll for a fight someplace else.Subject: [rspwfaq2] Re: Scott's Blog Of Doom!: Greatest BOD Moments?
"You can have a penis and still be a women"Uh no you can't
You can have a penis and be a little bitch, though (as my wife has reminded me on numerous occasions)...
"Fuck off dickhead" -- Always amused by people who sound really tough behind the safety of a keyboard -- And no, I'm not trolling for a fight -- I just can't understand the need for crass namecalling as a response -- It seems so...lazy...
Glad I could amuse you Nate.I'm not trying to be a tough guy, keyboard or otherwise, but he was being a dickhead and I call 'em like I sees 'em.I didn't say one word of what he was implying, and starting your comment with PROTIP is a total douchebag maneuver.
Just looked up PROTIP (I'm not as up to date on the jargon as I probably should be and don't play video games) and I agree, that is pretty douchey...
His takedown of Jay Bower back in the Wrestleline days was pretty cool and his story about the birth of his daughter was a pleasantly unexpected tale...
