|All I can say is thanks, Chris. I've been reading your recaps for over three years now (since I found WrestleLine)and never made it through one without laughing my ass off. |

|I'm kinda surprised there hasn't been a 500 post thread like the other hiatus.|
Anyway, I liked the GoatBoy reference.
Thanks for the memories, CRZ. Good luck in whatever you do.

|CRZ, I hope you're truly gone this time, because no one on earth should have to sit through meticulously recapping any more of that abysmal show. Best of luck on the cross country move, and be sure to post the wedding registry online so your many admirers can buy you flatware.|

|Zed, thanks for all the work, all the details, all the "ugh" moments.|
And congrats on the move, and the upcoming something-close-to-blissful future. Best of luck, man.

*wipes tear from eye* I know he added that in just for me! Thanks Zed.
I always read your reports and try my best to give it props on the Raw Recap feedback thread as much as possible. I really enjoy your work over the year or so I've been reading.
I really appreciate how you give matches that most recappers would just skip over (ie women match) you give it some respect actually knowing that their are fans of that match/ woman that could be interested in a real recap.
I'm greedy, I'm a little bummed that there's no Zed Raw report next week but I do wish you all the best.
Have fun Zed =)

Thanks for all the recaps, I've been reading you since you first started back with Wrestlemaniacs. And, more importantly, Good luck to you and Kim on your new life together. I've been married for over 7 years, have 3 kids and wouldn't trade it for the world. I wish you all the happiness for the future!

|Well, poop. Weird thing is, I only started reading online stuff about wrestling a little over two years ago, thanks to WOW Magazine(hey, I never claimed to be an old hand at this), and I was first introduced to The Boss's work via Wrestleline. Originally I was of the impression that his stuff was a bit on the wordy side, but the blistering attention to detail and funny asides were what made me a fan. I'm sad that I missed the heyday of his work and that I most likely won't be writing for anyone else(and now I'm ripping off the facetious self-pity thing. Bite me), but I'm glad I was able to contribute what I could for a site like this. Good Luck with the rest of your life, CRZ, and hopefully we'll be seeing you again. Forgive me if I'm being a little incoherent, but, well, you know. Thanks for your time.|

|That's a damn good reason to bow out. Congrats. You will be missed, that's for sure. I don't think there's anyone else who has the kind of dedication to do the kind of recaps you put together every week. Me, I can't even listen to a HHH promo, let alone transcribe it.
CRZ... is walking.

Good luck to the both of you - and thank you Chris for 10 years off an on, but specifically the last 4 and a half. Unbelievable work.

|Well, I'll add my 2 cents before this thread gets too long. I've got no witty references that haven't already been made, I just wanted to say thanks. I originally found you via Search engines/Wrestlemaniacs/Wrestleline and then finally wound up here. (Where I should have been in the first place?)|
Your recaps helped me drown the sorrows of watching WCW implode, I can't imagine what it must have been like trying to watch that AND recap it.
So congratulations, take your well deserved "retirement" and have fun with this new step in your life. I'm 6 years in and it's more than amazing.
Don't be a stranger, stop in every once in a while to say "Hi!". (Which will cause us all to post another 500 post thread titled "He's Back!")

|Yep, what everybody else said. |
All those recaps, all those words- thank you for sacrificing your wrists for we, the readers. Thank you also for giving me a forum to recap a show or two, as well as for telling me once that I "still rule" in one of the old letters sections, years before I had the chance to argue with you in the Politics forum here.
Congrats also in order for the upgrading of your living arrangement. Enjoy life, enjoy not having to write recaps of shitty shows, and enjoy leaving a much tidier corpse than Sean Shannon did. Huzzah.

|Hey CRZ, Im going to chime in to and say thanks and good luck. I ran across CRZ at Wrestleline in 2000. I would cut and paste his recaps and email it to some of wrestling buddies out to sea on a six month cruise. They loved it and they certainly appreciated it. They like me couldnt believe that someone could translate every detail of every show. Anyways thanks, you made a bunch of navy guys lives a little bit more bearable. congrats on getting married... |

What more of a compliment would a person want? But seriously folks; thank you Mr. Zimmerman for many of hours spent dicking around at work reading your recaps.
Best of luck to you and yours.
