Okay, I know that I am bordering - okay Frick bordering - I am careening out of control across the median of spamming with my hair on fire.

But, and this is key, tonight on Viewer's Choice, the Internet Wrestling Syndicate will have a PPV that *I* wrote, and the reason that I have that gig is CRZ.

(Somewhere Chris is saying, "Oh Sure, Blame ME."

See, back in 2001, when I first started poking around the internet, I stumbled across Wrestleline, which led me to slash/wrestling, which led me to ye old CRZ ez-board, in which milk and honey flowed etc...

After posting on the message board for a while, I decided to start writing for slash, encouraged no doubt by CRZ's editorial policy of publishing damn near anything. After writing some stuff about growing up watching old school wrestling in the Maritimes, I wrote the spoilers for the first SmackDown ever to hit Montreal. I enjoyed writing the spoilers, but I didn't think that I really nailed the piece, that I wrote as well as I could...

So, coming out of the Paramount after watching Jericho beat the Rock and win the WWF title, when someone handed me a flyer announcing live indy wrestling (and a mid-show hot oil wrestling) I decided to go and write about it. That was how I was introduced to the IWS. I wrote about 10,000 words about it, Chris was deranged enough to HTML it and put it on the site and a chance Google search later the owner of the fed read it and soon all of the wrestlers had as well.

For about a year, I went to IWS events monthly and wrote about what I saw on slash. In January 2003, Manny Elefthriou (God, I know that I am misspelling that.) aka PCP Crazy F'N Manny, the owner of the fed asked me to start writing for the IWS instead of about the IWS.

Despite some misgivings about selling out and becoming a PATHETIC SHILL (Yes, I know, I have no soul, move on.) I agreed.

And now, a year and a half later, my name is in the credits of a wrestling PPV, and to a certain extent I owe that to CRZ.

So a tip of the hat to the dictator,

and a plea to my fellow Canuckistanians:

Fellow Youth of Canadiana:

You MUST buy the IWS PPV Tonight on Viewer's Choice!
(8 pm there are replays)

WHY? you ask.


1) It's only $5.99
2) It features the return of Sid Vicious to wrestling
3) It got a great review on Slam Wrestling
4) You get to see how hard a seperatist can kick someone in the face.
5) You get to see Kevin Steen
6) I wrote the show
7) You get to see El Generico
Did I mention that I wrote the show?
9) You get to see Pierre Carl Ouellet
10) My name is in the credits!!!
11) You will be supporting Indy Wrestling in Canada
12) The more people buy this one, the more likely we get to do an all IWS PPV again
13) Did I mention my name is in the credits!!!!

Hmmmm... I shouldn't leave it there. 13 is an unlucky number.

Thanks Calzone Lad

Well, Negotiations are ongoing to bring this PPV to the states with extra footage - the tag team death match with the four guys who were at the CZW TOD3 - Eddy & Green Phantom vs. Arsenal & Ninja.

I'll let you know how that goes.

It will also be available on Bell Express Vu later this year . (September?)

Oh and for those who missed it yesterday it replays later this week - July 31st - 6:00 am, 7:30am, 9:00am, 10:30am, 12:00pm, 1:30pm, 3:00pm, 4:30pm, 6:00pm, 7:30pm, 9:00pm and 10:30pm

Okay, okay - the hard sell worked. I'll watch it this week(had been meaning too, anyways). Looking forward to it.

And Llakor -- congrats on all your success. Writing an entire PPV can't be easy, but kudos to you for following your dreams all the way through.

Big props on your devotion to your fed. They benefit from your help; sure hope they're thankful. SUPPORT INDY WRESTLING!

Dammit, this ain't on DirecTV or something down here (down where?) in the States!?

Star wipe, and...we're out.

The man is no liar, folks. I've seen him in action backstage at an IWS show and there's a guy who's devoted to his fed. Kudos, little man.

Plus, no one else I know owns a kickass Spider Man shirt like yours.

Congrats, Llakor. I wish I lived up there, I'd buy the PPV just on general principle.

Llakor wrote the PPV for me.

No, really, I swear as Sid was throwing guys all over the place I could feel the love for ME glowing through the screen.

As perhaps the biggest self-professed Sid fan on this board - the show worked for me in a BIG way. Sure, there was Lots Of Other Stuff, but NONE of it matters because Sid was all "DIE IWS" and they were all "we're gonna die" and then they died.

$6??? I'd have paid $100 for Sid going crazy.

Who cares? It's only Nowinski/Maven (and I like Nowinski). It's not like we're talking Brock/HHH here. I'm more peeved these 2 have a PPV match while RVD eats wings at The World (and I'm a casual RVD fan).
