Before I get into comments and questions, I want to start off by saying thank you. Anybody who writes only for money will put out garbage product. Writing needs to be of the soul and the heart to Continue Reading...

Rewriting The Book – What if Goldberg never lost at Starrcade ’98? (Part IV) by Jed Shaffer Previously in RTB, Eric Bischoff’s mismanagement of WCW led to extreme fan disapproval, sagging ratings, plummeting PPV buyrates, and most alarming, a talent revolution.

Rewriting The Book – What if Goldberg never lost at Starrcade ’98? (Part III) by Jed Shaffer Previously in RTB, Goldberg’s undefeated streak remained intact thanks to corporate protection, but thanks to bad booking, his star power dwindled. WCW honcho Eric Bischoff turned Goldberg heel, and did so by aligning him with a returning Sid Vicious. Crowds chanted for Sting Continue Reading...

Rewriting The Book: What if Goldberg never lost at Starrcade ’98? (Part II) by Jed Shaffer Previously in RTB, Goldberg’s title run and undefeated streak became protected by mandate of Turner Sports executives.

Rewriting The Book: What if Goldberg never lost at Starrcade ’98? (Part I) by Jed Shaffer (Author’s note: Stephen King once said that any story that couldn’t act as its own defense attorney didn’t deserve to be written.

Howdy. Long time no … anything, I guess. And for that, I need to apologize. I should’ve popped my head up sooner and given you all the low-down. Hope you all aren’t too mad at me.

Children of all ages were enamored with meeting Fezzik. And the press and general media had gone above & beyond (with no bribes) in promoting Continue Reading...
