* John Petrie's Slobberknocker Central. The best non-CRZ Monday night recaps of anyone. Petrie was quite fair: when he liked something, he effusively praised it. When he didn't like something, stand back and watch the snark.

* Bill Milano's DDT Digest. Probably the best pure-WCW page of all time. Show recaps were always right on time and pretty informative, and much hilarity was gleaned from the reader-submitted top ten lists.

* The first wrestling website I ever went to, a news/show reports/PPV results hybrid. The guy who ran it was pretty funny, and he had a gimmick where he pretty much related every show to how it affected Mr. Perfect. For example, his recap of the 1990 Royal Rumble....."Hulk Hogan won after Mr. Perfect leapt from the ring to keep from causing Hogan any more pain."

This one I don't know. :)

I was going to say DDT Digest, but I didn't know whether it would count or not. The all-time top ten lists is great reading, even it is very dated. All of the recaps were fun to read. That complex design of his can't be beat. I liked how Bill also shared some "old-school" WWF stuff on his site since he was probably an old WWF fan.

On that tangent, I would also like to name Wade's Wrestling Stuff and Xavier Doom's Slayground as great long-gone sites.

I know this is only the third reply, but ScoopsCentral/Wrestling.com has to fit in here somewhere.

Also, these are the first wrestling sites that I went to when I first got AOL lo those many years ago. Wrestlepress.com, WrestlingInsider.com, K-Rock and TooSweet's wrestlingheadlines.com (which I found through the wrestlepress site, IIRC) Anyone remember these?

The Bagpipe Report

Mike Samuda's news reports, before he joined Rick Scaia.

The Grandstand, which hosted ECW's official site as well as the Wrestling Chatterbox. It later evolved into cybrsports before disappearing entirely.

Does Oliver P (I can't even begin to spell that last name) still have a site open?

Steve Black's WrestleWeb.

Hack-Man Otto Heuer, who still has a site. It hasn't been updated in about five years, though.

Yes, I remember K-Rock and TooSweet. Most had a newsboard as well as some media. I think I still have a couple of picture files from that place.

nWoCentral (which evolved from newworldorder.simplenet.com) was a great site, run by a guy named Mark Coleman if I remember correctly.

Micasa '98 and '99 were fun.

WrestleLine sucked but I miss it for some reason.

TooSweet's Wrestling Headlines was my first wrestling site. Then his and K-Rock's Wrestling Headlines was a definite daily stop for a long time.

XWrestling was awesome. I definitely miss that one.

ScoopThis was good until it got too high on itself.

WrestlingArena had good screen captures but was one of the trashy group of sites that leached off the big guns.

the-revolution.net intrigued me...

That's about it.

There was a 'newz'board that was around a few years ago that was decent for only one reason. The site was called wwfwcf.com (I think). It was the typical newsboard site with hokey rumors and stolen news bits from all the usual legit sites and all, but the one thing that was decent about the site was the fact that for every major PPV, whoever did the ongoing coverage also included screen captures of matches in progress. I was able to grab screehshots of Booker T winning the WCW World Title for the first time and him holding up the belt. It was his first moment of glory with the world's heavyweight championship. (Yeah, it certainly doesn't rank as great.)

I've only been able to go online since getting a computer back in late 1999, so I think I ended up missing most of the older sites that were around. But I'm glad I found slashwrestling when the URL was still crz.net/wrestling. Otherwise I wouldn't be a wiener!

And does oursocalledsport count? I REALLY miss that site, especially 'Taker's columns. Priceless and HILARIOUS.

While not totally dead, when the full site was up a couple years ago, I spent hours going through his archives...

Scoops goes in that last for sure, not to mention ScoopThis.

WrestleLine had some interesting stuff from time to time.

For pure comedy value, how about wcwwrestling.com?

Hey, I remember Xavier Doom's Slayground! That was another terrific site. Didn't the guy that ran that get sucked up into the Blog World Order or something?

There's also the New World Wide Web Order, though the columns on that page were either really good or really horrible.

MiCasa. Favorite memory of MiCasa was when they printed Dave Meltzer's article about Survivor Series 1997 from the Wrestling Observer.

Also, The NWWWO was one of my favorite sites way back when, as well as Slobberknocker Central, and I admit it, Rantsylvania.

Was that the one with Dave Gagnon leading the pack? I can't remember if it was that, or something similar sounding. If so, I did some writing for the site for a brief spell....

Micasa and the News From Dayton were the first two sites I found along the IWC road, after reading CRZ in usenet. I always thought Mike and Rick had good writing styles, used actual nouns and verbs, usually spelled correctly and in general, didn't insult my intellegence. In those days, I suspect I wandered around (scoops, 1Bob, ddtdigest), but those were the ones I visited on a regular basis. I still visit OO - but the people on their forums don't do anything for me

I do miss Mike Samuda. A lot. I recall when CRZ started to call Torrie Wilson Torrie Samuda and chuckled heavily. I still really don't know why he did that.

I guess it's been about ten months since I've provided the link to this old Wrestleline interview (web.archive.org) to people...

Damn, he was all over her! It got kinda gross after awhile.

Meanwhile, it's funny how when asked about who her fav WWF performer at the time was, she says Mr. Ass.

Wow, is that ever telling. The two highlights for me:


MIKE: Do you still keep in touch with your father?
TORRIE: Yeah.

And now he's.... sniff.... GONE....

and

MIKE: Would you ever pose for Playboy?
TORRIE: No.
MIKE: Is that a moral issue for you? Or is it that you're shy?
TORRIE: It's just something I feel, to be a role model for people, for girls, I don't really need to do that. I don't see it pushing my career as far as acting goes.

Thanks, Chris - Mike got a little excited, eh? That's a side of him I hadn't seen. You think he does that in the courtroom these days (He's a Lawyer, right?)

The most classic wrestling website for me was "Demian's Wrestling Warroom," one big long scrolling guestbook where I wreaked much havoc.

That, and the memory of the Bam Bam Bigelow/Tatanka feud remind me just how much I miss 1994
