Mark Madden autographed shirt

Crapper Anthony Cox writes:

So I went to an indie show out in the Pittsburgh area for International Wrestling Cartel. Before the show, there was a Q&A by Mark Madden! I wore the shirt to the show, and he autographed it.

I replied…

A shame you had to ruin a perfectly good shirt like that. πŸ™‚

and Anthony came back with….

Hey the shirt was on clearance for 7 bucks!

Why would you even want a shirt autographed by someone like Mark Madden in the first place?!

You could’ve spent that $7 on something much more sensible… like buying 28 of those cheap $.25 capsule toys from the vending machine at the grocery store!

    You must mean worst commentator–non-nepotism division. David Crockett is by far the worst of all.

  2. Andre R. says:

    Meh. He was no better and no worse than Mr. Fruit Booty himself, Stevie Ray.

  3. George from Dudleyville, NY says:

    Lee Marshall was pretty bad. Also growing up with Bruno Sammartiono and Vince announcing makes me question what level of crap were talking about. I prefer Lord Alfred Hayes over everybody listed.

    Be careful Paul.
    The last time Deal said something uncomplimentary about Mark Madden, we all know what happened! Prepare for the flaming of a lifetime!

    I think I am the only one that actually liked Mark Madden………..

      I liked Mark Madden, too… when he wasn’t talking. I have zero desire to watch a wrestling show where there’s a heel commentator trying to throw inside terms out there that go over the head of the majority of the audience, and wavers back and forth on who he’s trying to cheer up throughout each match.

      He made “I stopped giving a shit” Tony Schiavone look like “Back when I was really good and not a running joke” Tony Schiavone (this would be from the late 80’s through mid 90’s. The Hogan Era killed him, 1998 through the end was just a corpse).

    Speaking of hopeless commentators when will Tony Dawson get his WC induction?

  7. Black Swagger says:

    I’m very happy my item has made it here on Wrestlecrap. And I am a Mark Madden fan myself. He does some good radio here in Pittsburgh.

  8. Vic says:

    I hate Mark Madden more than anybody else involved in the wrestling business. He is the worst commentator of any sport bar none and makes Art Donovan look like Gorilla Monsoon and Bobby Heenan.

  9. BaltoJim says:

    A shirt signed by Mark Madden is kind of cool, but a shirt signed by Tony Schiavone would be THE GREATEST SHIRT IN THE HISTORY OF OUR SPORT!!!

  10. Dan Sheldon says:

    Said it before and I’ll say it again, Dutch Mantell and Mario Savaldi were the worst commentating team I ever heard. They did English commentating for IWA out of Puerto Rico. Mark Madden made me laugh from time to time. I wasn’t a hater.

  11. Mister Forth says:

    At least something good came out of WCW 2000.

  12. Thomas Moffatt says:

    So when IS Tony Dawson getting his WC induction???

  13. Sean Bateman says:

    At least Mark Madden is better than Ed “Oklahoma” Ferrera
