His news updates are the best thing about 411, in my opinion. I wish he'd work more than one day a week, and thus cut down some of the crap (coughcoughEricScoughcough).

I have to agree on both counts. There's a certain tone that Grutman takes in his columns, especially of late, where he's almost condescending, and I'm not sure if he's being condescending towards him for what he writes, or the reader for reading what he writes, but its briliant and I like it.

Yep, Grutman totally rules. Love his work, easily the most readable writer on the site, which says more for him than the site, as they have a good nucleus of solid writers.

Grut is the best thing about Thursday for those of us without UPN. He should REALLY bring back the Gridro philosophy.

I'm surprised I didn't get fired for dying laughing at the way he'd work Lance Storm getting fired into every update, then deciding to switch to Mark Henry running off crying like a schoolgirl. Come on, admit that mental image makes you chuckle.

Although I don't mind Eric S... he, Flea, and Grut are the three recaps I look for.

While I don't think you need to insult Eric to pay me a compliment, it's still good to get a reminder every now and then that people appreciate the writing. Really, you guys just made a lousy day better. Thank you all very much, and if I can remember when I write my report at 11:30 on Wednesday night, I'll slip in a Gridro reference for Johny.

Also, thanks to the people who hate me for not posting on this thread before I read it. You are the greatest heroes of all.

Josh's "Useful" is probably one of the top two or three things I've ever read on the 'net.

Another great column this week. A few comments:

1) This thread got acknowledged.
2) There is a new Buffy next week (assuming its not pre-empted).
3) That was a GREAT line at the end.

He sucks. To be honest, the only ones worth keeping on that site are Hyatte and Keith. I find a pain in the ass, but he is a name and he does draw people there. However, Hyatte really made that site popular and since he left the rest of the writers are just rip him off which I belive one of the 411 writers admitts. I just find the condescending writing, I must throw my cynical point of view into anything I write style to be over and done. What I wouldn't give to have one writer that just has fun with the reviews and is a bit leant on the whole ratings system. Where have all the CRZs and Hyattes gone, I ask you?

A Fan- I don't know if that made sense due it be 3:00 am. Buffy is new this week?

No! This will not become another Hyatte-Keith thread! There are like 8,000,000 of those. If you want to talk about Hyatte-Keith, go to one of those or start a new one. Let's keep our eye on the ball and the focus on Joshua Grutman. Joshua Grutman, who mentioned you guys in his column out of appreciation! Let us keep this thread about him, the most universally liked columnist on the Internet.

Please don't destroy my thread, A Fan. I have so little. Don't take this away.

Sorry, dude, I just call them like I see them. Its also hard not to compare you to those two. When people talk about writers on the net those two are the first that pop in ther. Actually, it used to be Hyatte and CRZ, but now since CRZ is done and Hyatte is only one "vacation". So, you have to be compared to those two, I could have said Sacia.

I have nothing against you personally, its your style is not my thing. I don't expect you to report the news, but not every story needs a bad joke either. I do like your points of view on other things though. Even reading your new report now, I'm just finding it formulatic. I have to watch formulatic crap on every Raw, I am begging to at least make the attempt to be different.

A Fan- I don't know, I maybe just used like certian writers unforuntly 2/3s are gone.

Well Grut, I guess you have to change your signature to "Joshua Grutman is endorsed by Scott Keith, Chris Hyatte, Wrestlecrap Guy, Flea, Ken Anderson, Ben Morse, the 411mania Message Board and the Wienerville message board. That's right, NOBODY hates Josh. Nobody......except A Fan :-("

I don't read the news columns every single week (I'm sorry!!!) but when I remember to they consistently entertain me. And I think the Wrestling Tale columns are the best wrestling related writing that doesn't involve Al Wilson currently on the internet.

Wow, feel the love in this room. I'm sorry, the guy is not what I like to read if I want Hyatte I'd read Hyatte. I'm sure he is a cool dude, he has to be to post here and even reply to me. I just want a person who can write and be cynic about it. I'll endorse the kid, but I just don't like his writing style.

A Fan- Its not like Ashish never let me write movie reviews like he said he would is why I am bashing him.

Joshua Grutman just wants to stress that Joshua Grutman has no problem with A Fan. A Fan is entitled to his opinion. Joshua Grutman's problem was that A Fan tried, maybe without realizing it, to change the topic from the glory (or crap monkey, depending on your point of view) that is Joshua Grutman to Chris and Scott. The conversation would have become, "Hyatte sux." "You're an idiot. Hyatte rules and Keith sucks." "They both suck. Who goes to 411 anyway? Their new site design is so gay." "Hey, you're gay!" "Great comeback, Widro." "Yeah, it was. Hey, were you being sarcastic?"

You get the point. This is a discussion thread, so people should be able to have differing opinions. I'm happy so long as those opinions are about me.

I like grutman because he's funny without having to insult everybody (like other writers, his fans, and wrestlers*).

But really, now Lance has the new pinnacle of wrestling fandom; the stupid Internet recurring joke.

Now he and Dean Malenko and discuss it over a plate of steaming dog.
