YOU dropped ZENK? What, do a bunch of internet wrestling geeks (I don't exempt myself from that) have more credibility than a guy that, you know, was actually a wrestler?
Zenk = Guy with strong opinions based on personal experience and own sense of ego.
Average net writer = hack with strong opinions based largely on conjecture and own sense of ego.
I'll take Zenk any day. Hey, maybe he'll want to write for the [Slash].
I see your point. We also used to get regular contributions from "Lightning" Mike Quackenbush. Here's the problem with having workers as contributors for our site. They either: a) Are active workers and have to consider politics when they post. Nobody's gonna bash McMahon or mock a stupid WWF worker (Lance Storm, for instance) becuase there's always the (super minute) chance that they could get signed. So most stuff from active workers is kind of tame and bland (Quack was funny, but you could tell he was holding back). b) Are bitter and hatefilled, without much to say in terms of constructive criticism. There are some older guys out there I'd LOVE to have contribute (Barry Horowitz comes to mind), but there's also the technology barrier, and the time factor.
Having Zenk was ok for what it was, but in the end he was really sort of taking up space and not trying to be a real part of the site. That's my take, at least.
