I just want to extend a hearty thanks, here, for Slashwrestling and Wienerville. Between these two sites, you've mangaged to take my interest in professional wrestling and increase it a hundred-fold. The fact that I can catch up on everything I missed with your detailed Recaps, the fact that I can talk to decent fans about Wrestling and other things here on your message board just makes me a pretty happy guy. So while I could've emailed this and hoped for a blub on the next recap, I felt I should just put this up here on Wienerville, because I love it here, and I think that all has to do with your influence.
And wow, didn't that sound like some kind of heady love letter? Ah well, I think I'll just leave it at: I truly enjoy your work, CRZ. Thanks.
I don't have a single witty thing to put right here. Yet.

I will second that thought. I'm only home about 12 Monday nights per year and occasionally my VCR doesn't tape what it is supposed to tape. In the summer I'm usually playing golf when Smackdown is on and it's too much of a pain for me to attempt taping that. (I have a digital satellite that makes taping Raw EASY, but I have to fiddle with the VCR too much to tape Smackdown, which I get through "rabbit ears".) I read the recaps even when I watch Raw and Smackdown, but the recaps allow me to keep up with what is going on. While it is true that there are other recaps, I honestly don't get the impression that CRZ feels he is smarter than his readers or that CRZ feels he is a "better" wrestling fan than his readers. So, thank you for the effort CRZ.
I would also like to take this time to jump on the CRZ bandwagon and thank you and all that help out for your efforts in maintaining this site. I recently went on vacation and did not get to see Summerslam, the following Raw or Smackdown. But what I was able to do was go to slashwrestling to catch up on the prior weeks events via recaps and columns.
In fact there are times when I actually get more enjoyment reading your recaps than I get out of watching the actual show. Is it due to the quality of your recaps, or the lack of quality of the shows? I'll let you decide that one for yourself.
After listening to all that has been said... I still prefer the sound of my own voice.
"Mad props" to you Zed. Now that I don't get to watch Smackdown!, at least I can read your recaps to catch up with what I missed. And wienerville is by far the best message board I've seen during my travels on the internet. Keep up the good work.
On seperate note, will you be adding any more features? I mean, you now come with added sarcasim, so is there a chance that there will bea ~SUPER DELUXE ULTRA SPACE CRZ complete with sarcasim, bitterness, contempt, and a whole lot of rage? That would be the pretzels. Or you could just keep the sarcasim.
So to finish, solid work Zed, and keep it up, I appreciate it (and apparently, so do others).
