Has anyone else read his stuff recently? I had been skipping over his articles at 411 just b\c I had not enjoyed reading anyone other that Eric S., Flea, and Hyatte there but out of curiosity I read his latest article and then went to the TBR yahoo site and read this one and I have to say it was probably one of the most enjoyable reads I have had in awhile as far as the IWC goes. I had gotten burned out by all of the negativity and wanted to go back to being just a fan, and while his article does criticize, it does so from what I consider a fan's point, or at least this fan's viewpoint.

I hadn't seen anyone mention him on this board or anything about his writing so I was wondering what anyone else thought. This probably doesn't belong in the site BASHING area but I didn't think it really fit in just wrrestling or in Random.

Yeah, c'mon. When I read "site bashing" and
"Blake Norton" it creates a certain level of
expectation, like all those Austin teases on
RAW. What, you aren't going to bash Blake?

BOOOOOOO!!!

I've met Blake Norton. In fact Blake Norton
and I did commentary at an APW show together.
Blake is the typical fan who really desperately
wants to be part of the business in some form.

Blake realizes how the business works and he's
one of those people who tries to be helpful in
any way he can, what cynical, negative people
often refer to as a "shill" or a "familiar."

But I shouldn't disparage Blake, he seemed
pretty earnest and honest, except when he
was complimenting Miss Galatea on anything.
She appeared to have no redeeming qualities.

Blake is more likely to end up being the next
Mike Lano than the next Bill Apter. He wears
his affection for the business like a badge,
so people in the business see him as a mark.

He was a nice enough guy when I met him, so I
wish him the best of luck. I hope he makes a
career for himself outside the business because
he'd either be eaten alive or corrupted by it.

Of course that's true of almost everyone.

LOL, no bashing here. I tend not to bash too much. If I don't like a certain style of writing or a person's columns then I just don't read them. With that being said, I guess that may be why I don't post too much here since I do enjoy the WWE for what it is worth and quite a few of the 411 articles. I guess I am in the minority here or is it the silent majority...lol

It's funny that you mention Blake Norton. He is a contributor to a sports radio show here every week. He comes on Tuesday's from about 6:45 am and talks wrestling for about 15 minutes. It's mostly mark stuff, but they do get smarky sometimes about how much Raw sucks and how HHH is holding people down.

We also have Bubba the Love Sponge down here. He's a shock jock with a morning show on 98 Rock. He's Hogan's best friend and has him on the show every other day. Funny thing is they don't really talk wrestling. Bubba's always using wrestling terminology, like calling people marks, saying how he's going over and swerving everyone. Jericho, Kidman, Torrie, Christian, and Test come on the show sometimes because they all live down here.

Some guy called Bubba a couple of weeks ago when Stacy got hit by Jericho's chair shot, all serious like, asking Bubba if he knew Stacy's condition. Bubba called her later and Stacy pretty much laughed when she was told about the question. I guess someone missed the memo about all kayfabe all the time.

Do you know if Bubba the Love Sponge is broadcast on internet radio anywhere?

Speaking as someone who's had a decent show (Dee Snider) replaced by Bubba, lemme say it's not worth the effort to find his show. Sometimes, he's funny when he makes fun of how far he's burrowed up Hogan's ass, but he's not that good.

I have never been a Norton fan. His IGN stuff was ridiculous. He absolutely hated the Rock and was just anotha Smark. Nothing he did differentiated him from the other writers on the other newsboards. Give me the CRZ, Rick Scaia, good ol' Mike Samuda, or Scott Keith (early Wrestleline days, not his supersmarked out shell now). Those were the guys to listen to.

Well, Blake did train in the Hart Dungeon. That differentiated
him from the other writers on the other newsboards, though not
necessarily in a good way.

(Still gets a kick of Blake's final column bemoaning the loss
of his personal fanboy gravytrain at IGNWrestling.com.)

This site is five days old so bash away. Constructive critiscm is nice too. Just a newsboard and some links however it has a nice ad free forum. CRZ give it a gander if you would. Remember that favor you owe me? This will set us straight.
