Wrestlecrap plans on releasing a book with profiles on the most inane gimmicks such as Bastion Booger, Giant Gonzalez, PN News, etc.. It'll be chalk full of anecdotes from RD, and if you were a fan of the site, you'll probaly enjoy the book. They have a slight problem though, it's in regards to photos of these wrestlers. That's where I come in. Besides, what would a Wrestlecrap book be without the pictures?

Apparently he can't use WWE copyrighted photos seeing how it's not an official WWE publication, and he'd be in all sorts of trouble if he did, or if he did, they'd probaly want a huge cut in the book's revenue, so RD plans on using actual photos from the Apter mags such as Pro Wrestling Illustrated, The Wrestler, and Inside Wrestling.

Unfortunately, RD doesn't have any Apter mags, but luckily, I do and a scanner. I'm plan on scouring my collection of Apter Mags tonight, I've got roughly 100 issues, and I'm going to post all the wrestlecrap photos I can muster up for him on a secret page. They have to be in the specific gimmick though, like it has to be 'Saba Simba' and not plain old Tony Atlas, or 'IRS', and not plain Mike Rotunda.

RD will then review the photos, pick out the specific ones he wants for his book (I'll have the page number, mag issue info underneath each photo), and purchase the actual photos from London Publishing, the parent company of PWI.

And that's basically it. The Wrestlecrap book should come out this year. Check out wrestlecrap.com for the latest info on it.

If it's half as good as the site, I'll buy it. His little explanations for the gimmicks are always funny and I hope that he expands on them for the book.

One of my favorites is back up right now for Mantaur -

"A wrestling bull? Shit."

If somebody hasn't seen the site yet go there NOW (www.wrestlecrap.com) - it only has a few up a week, instead of the usual archive, but right now his Mantaur and Repo-Man bio's are up. They are LMAO funny.

I'm going to have to disagree on this one. Remember, going into KOTR '96, Austin was coming off losing a feud to Savio Vega and was borderline irrelevant in the grand schemes of the company. For the previous 2 years, Austin had Col.
