I got my start at 1wrestling.com. Saw a commercial or something during a syndicated ECW show. Then I moved onto what has been my favorite- Wrestleline. Loved this site with Ask The Rick, and they also had some very good articles there. 411 was my next fix but most there writers suck, with a few exceptions. Although the ones that are good I dont see post much.

Xavier Doom's Slayground was a tremendous site. Near the end (if memory serves) he posted this incredibly strange 3-way correspondence he had with some demented prison inmate and this inmate's sister/girlfriend (I can't remember which). They wanted him to send comp tapes to the prison and it got very strange (I wish I would have saved that stuff).

Our So Called Sport had the single funniest page I've ever seen. It was a inside look at the omni-presence of Goldberg's Monster Truck. It seemed that Goldberg's Monster Truck was present for some of history's biggest moments including the Fall of the Berlin Wall and it was even on stage at Woodstock! And it was all luckily documented with photographs.

I enjoyed OSCS' touching story of Tommy Dreamer getting work at Ace Hardware myself and giving it all he had as only Tommy Dreamer can. Something about Tommy bellowing "ACE FUCKING HARDWARE!" cracks me up to this very day.

I also enjoyed EmZee. Not neccessarily because it was a good site, but because it's very public self-destruction(s) were the Internet equivalent of a slow drive past a 5-car pileup.

I read the Tommy Dreamer at Ace Hardware story on The Shooters, which was amusing not just for GH & Joe's recaps (at least that's where I read them), but much like Emzee for the very public lunacy involved with the site. Luke was so gone, and when he and Sean Shannon collided it was like watching two neurotic stars crashing into a supernova of idiocy.

Hmm. . .well damn, guess I had it wrong then. *L*

The Shooters was an odd odd site before GH and Joe injected some much-needed levity, and so was EmZee. I never really knew that you could sustain a wrestling website with the mission statement of basically, "I hate you."

Obviously, I'm a bit naive.

Ahhh yes, Luke and Sean. "Sean, you're out of line." That was back during the time when Sean Shannon was feuding with every single person on the Internet wasn't it?

Wrestlemaniacs was the first wrestling site I ever visited (some time in '98). I followed Rick and CRZ from there to the "bad place" to where they are now.

Scoops was also very enjoyable in the day.

I believe that 7Pac was part of the NWWWO, so he probably had someting to do with Sean Shannon

>And does oursocalledsport count?

Well, of course OUR so-called SPORT counted. We were a website, we were in the past, and we were great.

I'll confirm that Tommy Dreamer Ace Hardware store thing wasn't us. My memory of my own shit isn't the best, but I know we didn't do any Tommy Dreamer stuff outside of making fun of him in TV recaps.

Goldberg Monster Truck was definitely us. A rare journey into PhotoShop that produced something pretty funny.

Personally, I miss the old school Wrestlemaniacs from the mid-90's. CRZ, Scaia, and whoeever else under one roof before WrestleLine came and died. Those were the days when writing about wrestling on the internet was about fun and not about cynical bitching.

I'm pretty sure it wasn't 7Pac of nWWWo fame but I could be wrong. I think there was a guy named Tito Levito there too. It was basically a site that just had a newsboard. Damn, I wish I could remember the site.

Yeah, I remember that page. As I remember, he was a huge UT and Mankind mark. He had a career retrospective of UT around the time of the SummerSlam Boiler Room Brawl referring to the graveyard of victims he has buried and I remember the last line was "The future of Mankind?" He played guitar as well. If you went to his main page, he had stuff about his band and his love of Metallica. I remember him bitching about how on the end of "Hero Of The Day", there's apparently some great solo by Kirk that you can't hear too well because it was hidden in the mix. You can actually still find at least one of his pages through Google/Yahoo. I remember he was very anti-WCW and he had a WCW drinking game. To paraphrase the best line from it : "If Hogan or Duggan win with a submission, invade Milwaukee." I seem to remember the address was http://ct.online.net/~shadow but I may be wrong about that.

As for other sites I can remember that disappeared...

http://www.dinferno.com which was a giant linksite
Is Solie's Tuesday Morning update still around?
I still want to know exactly what happened to OSCS. I know it disappeared but I've never been quite sure why.
http://www.theshooters.net version 1 was great--wasn't that where 411's Eric S. got his start? The second version wasn't as good but it was passable until it became just a forward to some guy's personal website.
Whatever happened to TC Kirkham of the 123 Page? I remember him trying to organize a boycott of the WWF in 1996 because of the way they were treating the 123 Kid. I can only imagine what he'd have wanted to do to WWE in 2002 when they released X-Pac.
And finally...
When I first got online in July 1996 (just in time for the Hogan heel turn), I remember finding a site that recapped Monday Night RAW with the following tagline: "For action that's wild, sporting, and follows no law; tune in each week for Monday Night RAW." Does anyone know what that site was?

PS: RKMtwin, the site you meant was wcwwwf.com but they changed their name to http://themayehm.com a few years ago dute to a lawsuit, they said. No idea if they still do the screengrabs from PPVs, though. It's very pop-up heavy though, so I tend to avoid it.

Yes. Earl Oliver is still going strong - In fact his latest news/opinion column is his 742nd.

I used to read him all the time . . . He had great supplemental material like "An Illustrated History of the Four Horsemen."

If you don't mind tons of bad take-offs on wrestlers' names (example: He calls John Cena "Vanilla Lice"), then give it a look.

The first site I regularly went to was Off The Top Rope. The site closed down and I moseyed over to Online Onslaught and MiCasa. I also dug Hyatte's weekly show recaps, especially the way he put Freddie Mercury lyrics in Dan Severn's dialogue.

I wrote often to oursocalledsport and signed my letters "a so called fan." The Shakespearean Nitro was a scream. "Thou didn't utterest such. Tell me thou didn't sayeth this."

I remember my local newspaper used to run syndicated columns by a writer out of Florida every two weeks. I loved those.

To give you an idea about South Carolina, this same paper also ran Flair's first departure to the WWE on the Sports front. This was when he used to wrestle within a 90-mile radius of Upstate S.C. every month.

Wow, Solie's was the first wrestling site I discovered on the Internet. I was even the (only) resident WWF mark on his message board back when only WCW was "cool". I had no idea it was still around.

I greatly miss Sean Shannon Productions, if only for the documentation of his steady decent into madness. I also seem to remember he had some mathematical way of formulating a show's rating that made no sense whatsoever.

7pac used to write for and run The Inside Update. It was a news board mainly, but then focused on columns by him and a few others...I think "The Franchise" was another writer, but I can't remember. He then turned it into moonsault.com, before someone mailbombed his private e-mail account, which his mother also used, and she cancelled their internet connection and he was off the net for awhile.

The Shooters V2.0 was pretty good until Luke started delegating control over the site to Kurt Schulz, who made it repeatedly clear to anyone who would listen that he didn't want to run the site and who spent every moment possible moment being a negative, self-hating Smark who bitched and moaned about everything and anything just to have something to bitch about. Especially when it came to updating the Shooters website, which led to his famous "I'm not allowing any new content onto the site because everyone is a bitter know-it-all except for me" breakdown, which according to Luke led to a near revolt in regards to the Shooters writing staff....

What was your name over there? I used to frequent that site quite a bit. It was also my first internet wrestling experience.
