Talk about other wrestling sites goes into Site Bashing. This is not a new thing.
It's not the site that's down, just the board. Which means it's just a vulnerabiity in the php board script Rick was previously unaware of - it's no big deal, it's just the reason why sane people don't run boards, too much junk to deal with. I'm sure he'll fix it as soon as he gets a chance.
If I'm not mistaken, Cole and Tazz were on Raw once to plug the upcoming Smackdown. At one point, there were Smackdown house show commercials, too, which were stated as having been paid for by the Raw brand.
