For people on here, y'get a free pass.

But for people who send in recaps to certain sites and do these house show recaps like they're SK or CRZ or Eric S. or even Hyatte -- stop.

Write who wrestled who, describe what happened, and emphasize if anything special happened (i.e. Nathan Jones/Matt Hardy).

Some are ok and keep things simple, while others think they're the shit because they're getting their 15 seconds on a wrestling website. Leave the smarky remarks to the pros, 'k?

So, having an opinion or trying to inject a little flavor is bad?

There's nothing more fun than venting in print after you've wasted time and money to see a bad product, be it wrestling or a movie or a concert.

If I hadn't been so tired last weekend, I would have written a wonderfully mean-spirited recap of the faux TNA show I went to in rural Virginia. Because it's cathartic.

That said, I agree that people being too clever for their own good is a royal pain in the ass.

I hate the ones who try to tell us every chant they tried to start or how they told these jokes and had people laughing around them. Here's another one I hate. "It was a Jeff Hardy match, therefore I went to the bathroom". The ones where you would just want to slap them if they were sitting by you. Report the details and let us know if anything exciting happened. We don't need another Scott Keith.

I remember sending in a house show report to the Bagpipe Report in 1996 when Warrior started no-showing. (leading to his eventual departure) It was my first taste of net fame, so I was pretty excited at the time. Of course, back then I lived in a bubble and called everyone "Mommy". Stop looking at me...

I kinda know what you mean. When my first comment about someone's writing on the Torch showed up on the page, I was so psyched (I'm such a stupid mark for myself).

I had thought about sending in show results, especially about some of the Philly independent shows (I go to some 3PW shows). But then I realized that I obviously don't have the memory skills necessary to go into real depth on the matches. I could write the results down as I watched the show, but I would feel like even more of a dork than usual. Sitting there with a clipboard writing things about psychology and lack of transitions scares me.

I'm torn on reading house show results. I really laugh hard at some of the smarky remarks, but other times it is very annoying to read about every single chant started. I don't want just a cut and dry listing of results though.

That's the point here -- I don't care if you inject some of your own home cooking -- just make sure it tastes good.

I also go to these shows to WATCH THE MATCHES. I don't go to take detailed notes about how the match went, the order of the matches, and the times. I leave that for the professionals. I just posted my live report from RAW tonight and you'll see that mine is much more of a report from a fan's eye view.

I disagree. I don't want to read any cookie cutter, dry fact sheet. You can get the bare bones facts at any site. I like getting as much detail and opinion as possible.

For an example of a great recap, see the Torch's Guttman's recap of the Raw X show. His description of Taz eating cheese was great.

Also, the best part of my Survivor Series recap was the "Free Booker T" chant. I'm using my free pass.

    I said this months ago. Posted on 7.5.02:

    Wrestling fans always seem to take offense when they are referred to as mouth breathing morons by "reputable" news sources... however, they always seem to feed right into this stereotype by participating in the dumbest behavior at live wrestling shows. For example, I cruised on over to 411 this morning to see if there were any live accounts of Raw... I generally enjoy these reports, as they tell the true story as to how the crowd felt about a certain wrestler, etc. Unfortunately, they also report on any goings on in the audience as well. Personally, I have no use for that crap, nor do I care. So what if someone was acting like a moron and got tossed? No big deal, that's to be expected at almost any and every sporting event in North America. My problem with this recapper is that he takes the time to simplistically narrate what happened:

    "...one guy in the lowers before we even went to Heat, then another during a commercial break near the last quarter-hour of RAW, which was complete with fan interaction, singing "Na na na na, na na na na, hey hey hey..."


I still feel the same way and totally agree with Teppan.

There's a fine line between just giving the results and providing useless data. I like it when people list the results, but throw out the really "Wow" information about a match or sketch. Since I don't watch, I feel like I'm getting some details without being bored by minutia...
