Another Black Friday is in the books!  I’ll detail it all on Joker’s Mustache (an absolute steal at under a dollar a week, check it out here), but let’s see….I witnessed a guy in reindeer antlers holding up a check out line by being completely engrossed by a King Tut National Geographic magazine, ate the most chickeny chicken breakfast burrito in Continue Reading...

Thanksgiving week coming up here in the US of A, so a couple quick housekeeping notes to start us off this week.  First, no new induction on Thursday because, well, no one ever reads them when I post on Thanksgiving.  Secondly…and most importantly…you definitely want to be hanging around the site starting on December 1.  There are BIG things coming, Continue Reading...

One night when I was a teenager, my Mom came in to a darkened room to check on me.  She was concerned, and rightly so – she heard me crying, sobbing uncontrollably.  I’ll never forget her eyes…and her softly asking me what was wrong.  I couldn’t speak.  I was trying to catch my breath.  All I could do was hold Continue Reading...

RD’s Mailbag – Halloween wrestling costumes, 20th Anniversary Death of WCW, Great Khali, Ken Patera, and What Vince is Doing RIGHT NOW

Hope everyone had a fantastic Halloween!  We had lots of trick or treaters, but would you believe it, not a single one was wrestling related.  Didn’t that happen once upon a time in the past?  I would have sworn a few years back with had a John Cena Jr or two show up at the door. Didn’t stop me from Continue Reading...

As I write this I am waiting to catch a redeye back to Indianapolis from Vegas.  Out here for work, and sitting with a buddy trying to explain what WrestleCrap is.  Imagine trying to do such a thing.  As we talked, I brought up Blade and it hit me…I think the last place Blade and I were ever physically together Continue Reading...

Another weekend is upon us, and this one should be…interesting.  I have a fifty mile bike ride ahead of me helping RD Jr. get his cycling merit badge as he pushes on to Eagle Scout status.  Won’t lie, I am more than a bit nervous as I have never in my life ridden that far.  I did do a 25 Continue Reading...

It’s been nearly a quarter of a century since I’ve had a hangover.  As a rule, I don’t drink.  I don’t hold it against folks that do (as long as you keep it in check), but it’s never been my thing.  That said, I do remember one horrific event back in the mid 90’s where I got completely smashed and Continue Reading...

October is here!  It may not mean much to you, but for me we’re hitting the zenith of the entire calendar year: Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas all in the span of the next 90 days.  All that and SURVIVOR SERIES!  Remember when that event actually meant something?  And when it took place on Thanksgiving day itself?  Folks like me that are as Continue Reading...

Want to thank everyone for the crazy amount of feedback I’ve gotten on the Roddy Piper Saturday morning cartoon special I inducted a couple days ago. I love finding bizarre stuff like that – wrestling folks in outside the norm entertainment like game shows and specials like this scratch a bizarre itch for me.  If you know of any of Continue Reading...

What a difference a week makes. Just seven days ago, I was looking forward to a trip to Chicago and All Out with my son.  We had an absolutely incredible time, more due to the 500 mile road trip where we just kinda took our time and goofed off.  We met some very cool folks, and I was able to introduce Continue Reading...

Looking forward to heading to Chicago this weekend to check out All Out.  While I am sure the show will be a lot of fun (say what you will about AEW of late, but their PPVs always deliver), it’s not so much the in-ring action I am excited about.  No, it’s the fact that RD Jr will be going with me Continue Reading...

As part of the revamped WrestleCrap site, we’ve decided to pull something out of the mothballs…namely, RD’s Mailbag! Look, we even brought back the hideous rainbow vision graphic we used 20 years ago! So yeah, submit those questions rightchere and I’ll do my best to answer them.  If we get like zero questions, we’ll probably fill this slot with something Continue Reading...
