From nytimes.com: "In World of Wrestling, Trying to Keep It Real Dave Meltzer, who began watching professional wrestling at age 9, has been putting out The Wrestling Observer as a weekly since 1986. By JAKE ROSSEN Published: May 14, 2013 Dave Meltzer was gravely ill, but the phone would not stop ringing. It was December 1993, and someone had circulated the number of the hospital where Meltzer was being treated for a ruptured appendix, the delayed diagnosis of which had caused a life-threatening abdominal inflammation. The professional wrestlers he often wrote about called to wish him well. Several would then launch into trade talk or gossip, which a fevered Meltzer would dutifully record. “For 16 days,” he recalled, “I sat there with my notebook, waiting to go home and write.” Full article: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/05/15/sports/wrestling-reporter-dave-meltzer-tries-to-keep-it-real.html?pagewanted=all&_r=1& (edited by JustinShapiro on 17.5.13 1315) Promote this thread!

I was too distracted by omg messy office OMG MONITOR hey where's the Beatles poster? Originally posted by JustinShapiro Lot of buzz coming out of it about Dave's pinky ring too. Is it just me, or does the article make it sound like Bret Hart witnessed Bruiser Brody's murder and refused to testify?

I bet, rather than that photo being staged, during the shoot Dave really did have to hop on the computer to post the latest Pro Wrestling Syndicate results.
