Hey folks,

Anyone here who's been around long enough to remember DEAN's posts - or if you know of him from the DVDVR or even back to the RSPW days - might want to check out this fundraiser. He's having some life-threatening health issues and his family can use our support.

As Hobbes put it on Twitter, "Dean is one of the godfathers of internet wrestling reviews and even if you're too young to have been influenced by DVDVR, I guarantee you people who you follow and even ones who actually make the wrestling you like were."

Wow. Thanks for the link, James. Tony Khan kicked in $5,000, which was the total initial goal. Nice.

Thanks for sharing the link, James.

Wouldn't you know, this sign appeared on Dynamite yesterday.

The image is broken for me, but I assume it's the DEAN sign from Dynamite - I just checked the DVDVR Twitter, and that was indeed a DVDVR board poster's sign.

It is the DEAN sign from Dynamite, yes. Glad that they confirmed it!

Very sad news to share from the DVDVR Twitter:


    Good Evening Everyone. I hoped to never ever have to make this announcement but, per his wife, our beloved Dean Rasmussen has passed away. I have no more information than that. Please continue to keep his family in your thoughts. - Rippa

I'm 41 now and this message board has been around for more than half my life, first starting while we were all trying to figure out how to navigate the online sphere - let alone the nascent IWC. Dean was present from the start.

I dunno, this hits hard for some reason.

RIP Dean.

Sad news. DEAN's passion was infectious, and he had just an incredible ability to get you excited about the dumbest stuff. "The clubbing blows - how they club!" is a regular turn of phrase in my house. DEAN will be missed.

DEAN took something I liked, wrestling, and made it better. He made it fun. One of the best wrestling message board posters and match reviewers of all time. You couldn’t help but feel the joy he felt when describing a match. His Smackdown Comix Reviews and adventures of Al Wilson are legendary. There is so much negativity and gate keeping with wrestling fans and DEAN was the exact opposite of that. I hope he rests easy and I thank him for the laughs and little bit of joy he brought me writing about the things he loved.

I'm really sorry to hear of his passing. Reading back over some of his writing, he had the ability to take something like a WCW Pro jobber squash and make it sound thrilling and exciting.

I'm trying to share his work with people who aren't familiar, are his comics available to view, still?

Ohhhh, this is too sad. I used to love reading DEAN's workrate reports here, with references to his "terlit".

I know he was a bit older than me, but still. Too young! He was dean.

Sad to hear of Dean’s passing. He was a legend ( along with our own host here) in the IWC. RIP to DEAN.

I think you're asking for trouble.... From my own personal experience: Last girl I dated is still in high school. In fact, she's currently doing Grade 11...for the 5th time. She is 20. So she's certainly no academic scholar.
