While going through old email to try to find the (long since disconnected, surely) phone numbers I had for the man in an attempt to get an official statement for The Internet as to how he could possibly let his domain expire after what happened to that OTHER famous domain, I happened to notice that we're celebrating an anniversary of sorts...

    Subject: An invitation...

    CRZ --

    I think a month or so ago I mention a little web venture that myself and Mike (the MiCasa guy) are starting up... we're looking for somebody to do write-ups of Monday nights, and would be honored if you'd consider coming out of retirement to be that man.

    It's up to you, but I'll remind you that there is a lot of ego gratification that comes with having upwards of 100,000 per week worshipping the ground you walk on.

    WrestleManiacs.Com goes online in a week, so think it over, and let me know in the next few days...

    Later....



    Rick


I think he exaggerated on the audience size. (Also probably the bit about worshipping the ground I walked on.)

I have the first email he wrote me about the "super secret project" he and Mike were working on but sinc eit doesn't work as a 10th anniversary piece, I'll hang onto that one for now. ;-)

Man, that seems like yesterday I was reading that site. I found you guys after following MiCasa to the new page. I remember reading his site the day the Bret Hart story broke about him leaving the WWF and not believing it.

Good stuff.

Hmmm...what happened to Wrestlemaniacs? I think I recall it being bought out by Wrestleline, but I can't be certain.

Can anyone enlighten us as to what happened?

And Online Onslaught's gone! What happened to that, too?

Rick's been seeming more and more bored with it lately (like another former wrestlemaniac I could name) and maybe he just decided to hang it up. My email to him has so far gone unanswered.

Ditto for me as well. It's amazing how things have risen and fallen, as far as online coverage of wrestling, in the last 10 years. Still, it's amazing to think that I've read the reports of some of these folks for almost a third of my life.

If it is the end of Online Onslaught, then it truly feels like the end of an era. That's a bummer.

I don't know how long it's been exactly, but I remember starting reading Rick and CRZ and the others on Wrestleline and didn't wander over there until the days of WOW (World of Wrestling) Magazine was out on stands. You could bet on every issue having a couple of full page ads for Wrestleline. I really liked that Magazine too, it's really too bad it didn't make it.

I'd say TNFD was about 92 or 93 or so. It was before I moved to Louisville, which was in 1995. TNFD pointed me to Scoops and MiCasa and to 1Wrestling and then I finally discovered the musings of a man called CRZ.

Where was Scott Keith in those days? Was he on Scoops? I seem to recall discovering him and kind of going 'eh' - it must have been after CRZ, cause he cracked me up.

I guess I should be the one to comment on "The End of Online Onslaught" since I seem to be doing it everywhere else these days?

Rick used an e-mail address to register the domain that he doesn't have access to anymore. The customer service people at the registry don't believe that he's actually him, so the whole registry thing is dragging out.

Which is fine, because I'm taking a vacation from the Satire for the next couple weeks, and I was pretty much the only regular feature on the site for the last little bit anyway.

Thanks for the update, Matt. I was enjoying PyroFalkon's "All You Need to Know" series, too, since I hardly watch wrestling anymore and he would get me up to speed in just a couple minutes. Nothing CRZ-length in his recaps!

I remember reading TNFD back in the early-mid 90's.

Keith was one of the denizens of RSPW, hence the whole "netcop" nickname. I don't believe he had a regular web presence until rantsylvania started, though he had a geocities page.

Yep, we were all on and off of rec.sport.pro-wrestling (and later, rec.sport.pro-wrestling.moderated).

The News From Dayton started in 1995. http://rspw.org/nfd
