I love going to these "news" sites (with popup killer on) and seeing how horribly they botch news stories. Take a look at this one from

WWE Adds Another Member To RAW Creative Team
Written by Ryan Clark on 04/01/2003

We have learned that WWE has hired veteran booker Virgil Runnels to be a part of the RAW creative team. Runnels previously worked for WCW and the NWA an was always known for his way of ending matches.

The announcement of his signing has created a buzz among the lockerroom, specially Ric Flair, Arn Anderson and Goldust, who were all good friends of his back in the day.


I guess somebody started watching wrestling in 1998. Even then, if you're running a website you should know that Virgil Runnels is Dusty Rhodes who is Goldust's father.

I don't know if today is the day you want to be criticizing websites for "botching" stories.

Come on - it is TOTALLY an April Fool's joke. I read the `newz' item on another site this morning. The way it was written -- that Virgil is known for his finishes, or somesuch -- and not 3-time World Champion Dusty Rhodes, it was someone trying to play a prank.
