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."
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.
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.
Sad to hear of Dean’s passing. He was a legend ( along with our own host here) in the IWC. RIP to DEAN.
We'll be back right after order has been restored here in the Omni Center.
That the universe was formed by a fortuitous concourse of atoms, I will no more believe than that the accidental jumbling of the alphabet would fall into a most ingenious treatise of philosophy - Swift
I direct you to Altoshaam's comments in regards to my favorite episode. All of Bookman's monologues are absolute side-splitters! However, I am also very partial to the episode where Elaine finds out Puddy's a Born-Again Christian.
