Being in the NYT has to be a huge honor for Meltzer, I would guess.

"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.”

I never even noticed that! I was too distracted by omg messy office OMG MONITOR hey where's the Beatles poster?

Is it just me, or does the article make it sound like Bret Hart witnessed Bruiser Brody's murder and refused to testify?

I think that was just poor sentence arrangement.

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.

if there had also been typos, I'd have thought it was a subtle homage to the Observer itself. :>

Correction were made to the article. Apparently Bret Hart isn't from Montreal.

I'm sorry, this isn't working out. I can't take any more of you. You're a moron. You add nothing to this board but aches in my head. You are the weakest link. Goodbye. Please say hi to "elbarto" for me.
