From his son, Aaron:

"It's my unfortunate duty to report that my father Zoogz Rift died peacefully on March 22nd at 12:20 PM. His death was due to serious complications from diabetes which he had been battling for well over a decade. A memorial page is going to be worked on to showcase his talents from musician to artist to wrestling performer. In the meantime, follow​zoogzrift for more info."

For the uninitiated Zoogz was a manager and one of the bookers for the Herb Abrams UWF as well as a prolific RSP-W poster in the mid 90s. He made a comeback to wrestling helping produce some SoCal indy shows from 2000-2002, which is when I got to work with him.

There is a theory which states that if ever anyone discovers exactly what the Universe is for and why it is here, it will instantly disappear and be replaced by something even more bizarre and inexplicable. There is another theory which states that this has already happened.

The net sucks. There are 10 people on the net, and 8 of them are retards. Nothing has changed. The net is NOT this great "information superhighway" nonsense they try to sell you---it's a bunch of anal-retentive lunkheads blabbering about the most inane nonsense imaginable. - Zoogz Rift, The Liquid Moamo

And he was most definitely one of 'em.


EDIT: The only interaction I could quickly find between us on r.s.p-w was this thread where he failed to sell my super awesome joke (

sorry to say I don't remember him. Best wishes to his family.

The person from the era I remember most that I don't think stll has an online wrestling presence is Herb Kunze.

I remember Zoogz. Oldschool RSPW back when it meant something.

I recognized his name immediately despite it being well over a decade since I visited RSPW on a regular basis. I always enjoyed his posts in particular. My condolences to his family and friends.

Um gotta disagree. The are in no different position then they were in before he came in and are likely in worse shape with him in the promotion. He did a lot for WWE, WCW, and the AWA but nothing for TNA.
