I'm the #1 WWE Fan -- by Bill Yankowy

Last Saturday night on Confidential, they did a piece on a guy who claimed to be the #1 WWE fan. Now, I've got to admit, I felt bad for him because he lost his wife, that is sad. And I liked his signs, but to tell you the truth folks? I AM THE #1 WWE FAN. Here's why. Since 1991 I have been subscribed to WWE Magazine, I have watched at least one PPV by them every year since 1990, I have there action figures, and most of all, I have over 100 wrestling tapes produced by the WWE. I have so much WWE merchandise, that it could drive people insane.

Now, when you debate who is the #1 WWE fan, just remember of the stuff that I have. And most important of all, how dedicated I have been to the WWE, and I believe that I'm the #1 WWE fan. I hope you guys have a happy holidays and remember if you get something that is WWE merchandise, just remember who is the #1 WWE fan. That is Bill Yankowy!


A Few of My Heros -- by Brad Dykens

Dick Hutton (profile) passed away on November 24, 2003. Dick Hutton wouldn't be known to many wrestling fans today, but he was one of the many men who helped pave the road for this great industry. Imagine being HAND PICKED by the great Lou Thesz to win the NWA World title as Thesz was on his way out. Dick Hutton was a decorated amature wrestler before stepping into a professional environment. In 1949, he lost an NCAA tournament match to future pro great Verne Gagne in the finals on a controversial referee's decision. As wrestling fans, we should never forget those who laid the foundation for the sport we love so much. Dick Hutton is a true legend, and will be missed -- REST IN PEACE.
1923 - 2003


Larry Booker (aka Larry Latham/Moondog Spot) passed away during a match in Memphis on November 29, 2003.. Larry Latham started out in Memphis, where he would eventually become an ICON in the territory feuding with the likes of Jerry "The King" Lawler, "Superstar" Bill Dundee, and the Rock'N'Roll Express. Before Larry became a Moondog though, he was one half of another dominant tag team called the Blonde Bombers, his partner was none other than Wayne Ferris (later known as The Honky Tonk Man). The early 80s saw the Moondogs take the WWWF by storm, winning the Tag Team titles, and later became a motivating factor in the angle between Hulk Hogan and Paul Orndorff. Some would say it was poetic justice that Spot passed away in the building where he worked and entertained fans for several decades as a top star. Wrestlers just don't share the same passion for the industry any more, and I can garantee you, this Moondog, will be sorely missed -- REST IN PEACE.


Don't Believe the Hype! by Andrea Kaufmann

Here's a guy who doesn't even know how to kick Bret Hart without ending his career. It has actually been said by doctors the stroke may have kept him out of the game for awhile, but if it hadn't been for that Mule Kick delivered by Goldberg, he would still be in the ring. Goldberg doesn't deserve what he's getting. Yes, I was sick of seeing HHH as the champ, even though I love the guy, but anyone but Goldberg! The guy is probably the most undeserving person on RAW and SD! combined. Hell, in NWA:TNA, WCW (when it was around), ECW (when it was around), WWE, WWF, Stampede Wrestling, all those combined plus any I missed! Don't believe the hype! HHH had the best description of Goldberg I have ever heard: A good idea gone bad. All the right hype, none of the talent. Goldberg, it's only the fan followers who want you around and less and less of those are being found today, get the F out!!!
