How long will it be before the folks at 411 Mania pull the plug on the wrestling department? You got folks there (Hyatte, Eric, Taylor) claiming the new guys are ripping them off, and just about every 'veteran' writer starts off his column by saying:

1)I don't really watch wrestling anymore, except to write the column)
2)I think I'm gonna move to the (music, movies, figures) section of 411
3)If they lose me, everybody will jump with me

I think Widro and Ashish should just pull the plug on that section themselves and tell the whole lot of whiners to go fuck themselves.

Yeah, I like reading wrestling columns about wrestling, but I'm not so much interested in reading wrestling columns about how, gee, writing about wrestling doesn't interest them anymore, and maybe they'll switch to writing about something else. Shit or get off the pot, but quit whining about it in public.

Most of those guys that are "whining" have entertained me for so long, they can write about whatever they want to write about as far as I'm concerned. Nobody is forcing me to click on their reports/rants/whatever, and there's plenty of wrestling news all over the place both at 411 and at other sites on the net.

I'm guessing that they want to continue writing, but don't necessarily want to give up their 411 audience. Maybe http://www.1ryderfakin.com will evenutally be thier only refuge when people are as used to clicking there for them as they are clicking to 411. Of course, this is all merely conjecture on my part, and might not have anything to do with reality.

Hopefully they'll continue to entertain me tho, since it's all really about my enjoyment ;-)

He's on vacation this week.

See http://scottkeith.blogspot.com for details. He gives some NM and Raw thoughts there, as well.

According to his blog, he's off from his day job this week, and the shows haven't motivated him enough to warrant his taking a break from his vacation.

Edit: I really need to stop thinking so much when I post and just click the 'submit' button without hesitating. I apologize for the repetition.

Here's some more 411 goodness:

Survivor Series News, Possible Spoilers And Wrestlemania Implications

What is WWE planning over the next few months?

-Steve Austin isn't scheduled to wrestle in the Team Austin vs. Team Bischoff match at Survivor Series.

-SmackDown! is also planning a five-on-five, traditional Survivor Series match which will include Brock Lesnar and others. There likely will not be a WWE Heavyweight Title defense at the show.

WARNING: POSSIBLE SPOILERS

-As of now, the plan at Survivor Series is for Vince to defeat the Undertaker in the "Buried Alive" match, with help from Stephanie. This would then lead to Taker taking an extended leave, only to return at Wrestlemania XX as the "Dead Man", to possibly face Kane in an interpromotional match.

-The other "brand vs. brand" match rumored for Mania at this point is Goldberg vs. Brock Lesnar.

AND...

WWE Notes: Takers Rep, Brand Split, Japanese Stable, New McMahon

Lots of news and notes...

-There are rumors that Shane and Marissa McMahon will be having their first child.

-The Undertaker's recent happiness with his character's direction is making some wrestlers lose respect for this locker room leader.

-Tajiri's new Japanese stable was originally going to be called "Yakuza" (the real name for the Japanese mafia), but Tajiri apparently refused to use that name for fear of offending the real mafia.

-RAW and SmackDown! will continue to be separate rosters after WrestleMania XX, and as of January WWE Magazine will be called "SmackDown! Magazine" and only cover SmackDown!, while "RAW Magazine" will only cover RAW.

411, not only do we post other people's news, but we post their uninteresting rumors too!

No....you'll have to have a better reason than that, I'm afraid. I mean, what you've added is just cutting and pasting and you tacked on an observation we've heard a thousand times before in this forum. So what? It gets OLD.

VPJG: Are you telling me you didn't think that everyone wouldn't know that was a joke?
See Our Zed: Are you aware of how many stupid dumbasses are members of that board?
VPJG: I mean, come on. It wasn't hurtful.
VPJG: Still, you gotta have a sense of humor with them.
See Our Zed: DevilsNightOut13: Shit, you can't take a joke, can you?
             DevilsNightOut13: For deleting my post, I give you a 95 hour and 36 minute ban
VPJG: Well, that's not that funny.
See Our Zed: Let's just say the fourth time I read somebody "giving me a ban" it isn't as tremendously funny
VPJG: Now THAT'S funny.
VPJG: Not for you.
See Our Zed: Eh
VPJG: Oh, come on. Imagine it happened to someone else.
See Our Zed: Well, SURE, if it happened to someone else!
VPJG: You need to learn to laugh.
VPJG: At you.
See Our Zed: Can I cut and paste this chat into that thread, then delete your response to it?
VPJG: It's your thing.
See Our Zed: I'm laughing...but only on the inside
