So did you guys even read what he said? He really laid into the nWo. He might not have the name of a Honky Tonk or an asswhipping list, but his comments are more bitter and once in awhile almost make sense.

He's also a MASTER OF PHOTOSHOP. And in terms of his name recognition...
Teamed with Rick Martel in the WWF as one half of the Can Am Connection.
Teamed with Brian Pillman in NWA/WCW, held the US Tag titles. Also held the TV title for a brief period of time. Went on to work All Japan puroresu.
I dunno. He might be bitter, but we like him. And we're tasteless, baby.

I think we lost sight of the original point, which is Who Cares About Tom Zenk Any More Than Any Random Crank On A Message Board.
Well Zenk has a better point of reference than say, you or me since he was a worker and knows some of these guys personally (unless you were a worker, I'm assuming you weren't). Now does that make his opinions any more valid? Nah. Is he a kook? Hmmm maybe. But his insight into the biz can't be completely discounted. He's all over weird historical moments. For instance...who did Vader squash in his first WCW match? That's right, the Z-Man. Plus anyone who's heard his WOLive appearances appreciates his (insane) wit. There are less informed and less credible people out there with larger followings (look to the north, you shall see him in his rotund glory...). To say Zenk is "just some crank on a messageboard" is like saying "Meltzer isn't a credible source". And really, what kind of person would do that?
You know, everything you're bitching about here actually applies to pretty much every wrestling news site on the web; Meltz always posts misleading headlines, and puts out both the SmackDown overnights AND the final numbers.
