Originally posted by a Dave Scherer mailbag on pwinsider I know that this may be a little outside the lines, but whatever happened to Al Isaacs of Scoops Wrestling and Mike Samuda of Micasa Wrestling? Any word on Christopher Robin Zimmerman these days?
Ah, some of the guys that were around back when wrestling on the web first started. I know that Al has a website at www.alisaacs.com. Mike Samuda ran Micasa while he was in law school. Last I heard, he graduated and is now a lawyer. I have no idea about Zimmerman. I met him at one of the ECW conventions a decade ago, but that is all I know about him.
And while I have no intention of blowing your cover, maybe you'd want the extra clicks?
But it seems hard to believe that someone working (at least on the the periphery of) the industry wouldn't know about this board.
I just read that too. I'm sure Dave just got bombarded with a few dozen emails. That article did bring back some memories though of the early days of the "newz" sites. I miss reading the daily Micasa reports.
It does Dave no good to let on that he knows where I am now, so why would he bother? That's just Dave. ;-)
(I'm funnin' - I'm sure he honestly has no idea where I am or even that I wrote 13 weeks of ECW recaps as I'm sure he has much better uses of his time, and hardly ANYBODY was aware that I was writing ECW recaps as it was a stealth project. Although... using Google isn't all that hard!)
Funny that they all call me "Zimmerman" there, though.
I could email Dave and set him straight, but I have to turn the honesty 'pon myself - if you hadn't posted this here, there's no way I would have known anyone was even talking about me (until the next time I Google myself - which isn't as often as it was when I was younger, sadly) so...I guess what I'm saying is I'm very, very lazy. But feel free to talk to Dave on my behalf, if you're already talking to him. Don't go out of your way or anything.
Finally, it's funny that Rick isn't mentioned - it could be because the questioner knows Rick still has an active website, but the conspiracy theorist could posit that because Rick DOES have an active website, Dave wouldn't necessarily want to bring any attention to it, since it's a "competitor," so he would have just left that name out. Oooooooooooooooh....!
Originally posted by BigDaddyLocoWhat was the meeting with him like?
With Dave? It wasn't really a meeting - it was the r.s.p-w Convention in Philadelphia in 1995. We went to a show in Jim Thorpe on Friday and went to Double Tables on Saturday. I "met" lots of people there, and remember maybe half a dozen of them. I doubt I made much of an impression on anyone myself - my biggest act of defiance was wearing my WWF hat everywhere I went on the first day.
My overall sense of Dave was that he really wants you to let him know how much fun you're having with him. Also, he really doesn't like Herb Kunze for some reason. ;-)

Could also be that Rick takes every opportunity he can (which isn't as often as it used to be, sadly) to rip Dave a new one in a column.

Umm, is it because no one CARES for what Rick says? I try and read him for old time'sake once in a while and he just comes across as a bitter old drunk who doesn't realize just how pathetic he comes across on the web. :-/
And I say this as someone who actually admired his vigorous writing style. Sadly none of it remains with him.
Scot Keith, for all his blind-spots, can still WRITE. And is probably still cool. :-)
Something I think could work with the Royal Rumble and make it even more important to win it. What do you guys think about the winner of the Royal Rumble getting a shot at BOTH world titles at Wrestlemania?? I can see it as one of two ways: (1)
