Can I get a fact checker please? Austin was a no-show for Wrestlemania XVIII? He's been wanted since the incident? Ugh.

Absolutely sickening. If we needed any more proof the media a) doesn't bother to check facts and b) is insanely biased, here it is.

I'm surprised that f'tard GRUTMAN didn't write this article.

Mr. Williams will always have my support, period. My FIERCE support, mind you, support that wouldn't be so fierce if Vince and his ego wasn't so insistent on now killing the legend of Stone Cold and attempting to replace it with some upstart neanderthal monkey named the Rock.

They must've been told that guy who wrestled Scott Hall at X-8 was actually Will Sasso doing his Austin impersonation.

This little bit of misinformation brings Austin one step closer to becoming the Ultimate Warrior of the new millenium.

From the story...

"Williams declined to comment on her husband's arrest. Austin, who was released after posting a $5,000 bond, had little to say about the incident.

'Nothing happened,' he told the San Antonio Express-News, upon leaving the booking station with his attorney."

I'd kind of like to know what he means with the "nothing happened" statement...is he denying the charges, or is he just saying that nothing new came to light at the police station? The story and the context of the quote makes it seem as if he's just flat out denying the 'incident', which I hope is not the case...unless Debra IS lying (I can dream can't I).

With Austin gone from the WWE lineup and the Rock moving on to movies, officials say they're searching for up-and-comers--such as 6-foot-4, 305-pound Brock Lesnar--to headline matches on Monday Night Raw.

WHOOPS. :)

Are you absolutely sure you want to use those words to describe the Rock?

No, just the common sense police there, DJ...easily miscontrued remarks such as his can make any point he was trying to make seem invalid, or at the very least cause one to "consider the source.".

The only thing I see wrong with the article is its accuracy. I could have rose-colored glasses on, but I don't see any bias there.

Check out KMOL's site as well -- if anyone knows a "Debora" Williams, let me know about that.

As a member of the "absolutely sickening" media you speak of, I politely ask you to pull your head out of the ground for a moment.

Certian members of the media like Rush Limbaugh and Jim Rome hold their opinions and that forms the basis of their shows. However shows like newscasts are not to have a "sickening biased" opinion, and should definitly check facts. There is the three rules regarding the news;

Accuracy.
Brevity.
Clarity.

If a station is not following these three rules, then they aren't doing their newscasts proeprly and you need to go find a source that does do them right. If not, you have no one to blame but yourself for seeing second rate media coverage.

The Rock has been more over than Austin for the past couple of years, FYI.

This came in the Miami Herald website on the 14th:

Plus, this came in on the Herald today:

Pro wrestling's "Stone Cold" Steve Austin surrendered to authorities in San Antonio after a judge issued an arrest warrant for him on a domestic violence complaint.
Steve Williams-his real name- was charged with assault with bodily injury, a Class A misdemeanor, police said. He was free after posting $5,000 bond.
"Nothing happened," the 37-year-old Williams said as he left the Bexar County Courthouse, the San Antonio Express-News reported on its website. He declined further comment.
Debra Williams, the wrestler's wife, called police around 4 a.m. June 15. The officer who arrived at their San Antonio home found the woman at the front of the house crying and said he saw "a large noticeable welt" just below her right eye.
The wrestler had left the house before police arrived but later spoke to the responding officer by phone.
The Williamses married last year in Las Vegas. It is the wrestler's third marriage.
In June, officials at World Wrestling Entertainment Inc. said Williams, who had been their featured television attraction, had failed to show up as scheduled at two events and "is no longer an active member of WWE's talent roster."


At least these people get the facts straight.





After lots of thinking I finally came to a theory: Any non-wrestler who gets attacked by the Island Boyz will immediately recieve praise from the Wienerville community.
There's no other way to explain it.

I'm wondering how you could respond to that without a) asking what the hell the FrostyPhone is and b) why the hell he has the P.C. Police on his speed-dial.

Nothing, I just found that line funny as hell and was hoping my questions would cause you to expound upon them.

Oh well.

Jenkies - this turned into one of those Dial-Up Mode threads in a hurry.

I was rather perturbed by the lack of accuracy in that article as well, considering the hundreds of places and ways one could check their facts.

You know, the only reason we know the media has trashed all the facts they've reported is because we already follow the WWE pretty closly both on TV and the internet (not that you'd need to be a super-fan to spot the inaccuracies, but you get the idea) so we already knew most of this stuff before they reported it. It kinda makes me wonder what other facts the media screws up concerning stroies/topics I dont know anything about.

It could also be the copy editor doesn't understand wrestling and tried to fix something grammar-related and it went from RVD fighting The Big Red Machine to being said machine. Copy editors have this irritating ability to suck.
