Where It All Began....

People ask me all the time why I love wrestling. The answer is simple... It's in my blood. When you look at the picture above you'll notice that there is an old man holding a puzzle of The Immortal Hulk Hogan, but what you won't know is that the man is my Grandpa Lee. He is the reason I am the man I am today, because he is man who introduced me to pro wrestling, something that I have loved every second of my life since day one. And thanks to him I have found the strength to draw inspiration from wrestling just like he did 20 plus years ago...

He was a simple man, he loved wrestling with all his heart, and back then he still thought it was real like most others did during that era. His favorite was Hulk Hogan, I will never forget the times I would spend at his house.. He would make me some peanut butter toast with a little sugar on top and we would sit in his living room while Saturday Night's Main Event was on, He would yell and scream at the tv, which I could giggle about. He would always tell me how great Hogan was and how no one would ever beat him. I never fully understood until years later how much wrestling meant to him. He passed away in 1992, and a few years ago in 2005, my dad gave me a box that my Grandpa had left for me. It had all kinds of old figures, puzzles, magazines, ect... in it of old school WWF. And since I never grew out of it, It meant the world to me. Now that I am older and know alot of guys that work in the buisness, I am proud to say that it still means as much to me now than it did to me as a child. I will never "grow up" and pass the phase known as "wrestling fan". There are other stories I remember about my Grandpa, I will share them another time. The pic below is me in the early 90's wearing the hat he gave me before he died. Ironically it's a WWF hat and WCW Sting t-shirt.

As I sit here now, I am beyond happy to report that the love I have for wrestling will continue, not only in me, but also in my 4 year old daughter, Tori, who absolutely loves every second that it is on. It reminds me of when I was a kid, I couldn't take my eyes off the screen. She struggles with Cerebal Palsy, among other things, but that doesn't stop her from showing her passion when wrestling is on. She kicks, hollars, punches, and laughes during the course of the matches. I honestly cannot tell you how much it means to me that she shares the same love and passion as I do for it. It adds another layer to our relationship, and guarentees I will always have someone to share it with.

In conclusion, if you call yourself a fan, you should take the time to sit and think about why, and make an effort to share your story with others. If you actually read all of this, I thank you. I hope you enjoyed it because I shared a piece of my heart with you. Again, Thanks for reading and...

Keep on Keeping On!

RDLee Free Insanity: JT

A special thanks to JT for telling it like it is in his first ever shoot interview EVER! They say "Controversy Creates Cash" so after this one is over, I'll be rich!

Read the full interview below...

RDLee: Hey JT, thanks for joining me today! 

JT: Thanks for having me buddy, it's an honor to be here.

RDLee: How long have you been a member of the message board?

JT: Since June 2007. I've been a reader since May 2006. For some reason I always thought that you had to pay to join the message board, so that's why it took me so long to join up.

RDLee: So in your case, you have seen many members come and go, Who has been your favorites and who are you glad is gone?

JT: Well other than RDLee, I have to say that my favorites have been those on the Impact thread Drowgoddess, JohnnyCraze, ThinkSoJoE, and Fritz Stephey. If it wasn't for them, would've given up on Impact long ago. 

Who I'm glad to see gone, that one is easy, Johnny Rebel, though he does reappear from time to time with his idiotic remarks and undying love for WCW. 

RDLee: Who's side are you on? The "Fritzey Woods" or "The Canadian BullZahs?"

JT: Canadian BullZahs since I'm a multi-time guest head shaker and they've both mentioned me in their audios, so I'm on their side. Plus I'm part Canadian so it helps too.

Aaron Wood sucks on levels I never even knew existed. Once you think he can't possibly suck any more, he tops himself. 2 hour 10 minute audio taking about RAW as he watches it just so he have the longest audio on Club WWI, I'd rather watch the movie Gigli than listen to that piece of crap.

Fritz is cool though.

RDLee: If Zah sits in a "Airchair" what do you sit in?

JT: A "Chairair"

RDLee: Is Mike Rickard really Magnificant? And if so, is he like the Wizard from Oz?

JT: Yes he is magnificant. With his through knowledege of Wrestling and the fact that he's the oldest one on the message board (I think), I would think of him more as Yoda than the Wizard of Oz.

RDLee: Is there any truth to the rumor that are "WWI's Original Redhead? How certain are you of this?

JT: Actually it's WWI's Resident Redhead. It's an hommage to Jimmy Wang Yang's "Smackdown's Resident Redneck" gimmick. However, since I am the only one with red hair willing to come out form behind the message board and show myself, then yes it is true that I'm WWI's Original Redhead. 

RDLee: Do you think that JG should start paying you royalties from his book as well? 

JT: Nah, just give me a free lifetime membership to Club WWI and I'll be happy.

RDLee: What is keeping you from joining the other "Newz" sites message boards and telling them all of our secrets?

JT: Wait, there are other sites besides I know, and, but I thought that's it. So if I don't know about them, they must suck and are not allowed to have the priviledge of having me post on their message boards. 

RDLee: If you could pick one WWI member to step into the ring with Snitsky, who would it be and what's the outcome?

JT: NozeNuggets. Snitsky kills NozeNuggets in a typical Snitsky squash match, then after the 3 count, Snitsky rips Noze's head off and punts it into the crowd ridding us of NozeNuggets forever.

RDLee: If you were trapped on a deserted island, who would you choose to have with you? Mae Young, Aaron Wood, or Chris Benoit?

JT: Well since Aaron Wood and Mae Young have something going on between them, I wouldn't wan't to ruin Aaron's only chance to get any from a live woman, so I'll pick Chris Benoit. Plus Benoit's already dead, and I like the peacefulness in being alone. 

RDLee: That wraps it up for us, thanks for joining me today and best of luck in all your future endevours.

JT: Before I go, I just want to give a shout out to Ayatollah Blassie, Sabuisgod, Green Teabagger, Keevel, bmartin, the people I play soccer with, all of my facebook and myspace friends, all of my stablemates in Death Dealer's Dirty Dozen, anyone else I forgot, and most of all RDLee for having on here because RDLee = Ratings.

"TNA iMPACT" TV Commercial

Wouldn't It Be Nice...

I watched one of my favorite movies of all time again last night for the first time on Blu-Ray, "50 First Dates" starring Adam Sandler and Drew Barrymore. I think this movie is amazing! It's super funny, has a heartfelt story and a great cast. If you haven't seen this movie yet, this is a MUST SEE!

Halo 4's First Screenshot Leaked?

While I cannot confirm whether this pic is real or fake, it certainly looks legit and interesting to me. This comes on the heels of the strong rumor that sites like IGN & G4 posted regarding info on Microsoft releasing Halo 4 with the next generation Xbox system.

I am praying that this is gonna happen because the screenshot above looks freaking awesome! But what do YOU think? Leave a comment below and let me know!

Ryan McBain's Thoughts on Xbox 360 v.s. PS3

A special thanks to Ryan McBain for submitting his interesting point of view regarding the PS3/Xbox 360 war. Make sure to check out his site @ and sign up for the Board of Legend to discuss or debate his opinions which you are about to read below. Or simply leave a comment here and I will pass along your thoughts to him myself. Here is his article:

"I get a lot of crap from people for buying a PS3. They either call me a dumbass, or a Sony fanboy. I'm neither. I just like what both systems have to offer. The Xbox 360 has the best online period.Plus, right now their library of games are more impressive. The main reason why I bought a Playstation 3 (60 gig model) was because of the potential the machine has. When Home comes out, I really think we're going see some amazing things. Plus having Blu-ray is a big help. John Carmack of id Software has stated that the upcoming shooter Rage will need at least 2 discs to be played on the 360. Even with 2 discs, that wont be enough to contain all of the high-resolution textures (the 360 will use a different compression technology to fit everything on those discs) and the PS3 version will look superior as a result.

By 2009 I think the PS3 will surpass the 360. I could be wrong. But, if games like Heavy Rain, and DC Universe Online, Resistance 2, Killzone 2, and Socom out. Plus don't be surprised if Gears of War 3 ends on the heard it here first :)

Speaking of Gears of War...

People always ask me what games I play online. I was never really a fan of shooting games, especially first person shooters. The only reason why I bought Halo 3 was because all my friends had the game and I didn't want to be left out. I saw Gears of War was third person, so I thought I would give it a try. I was hooked from the start.

GoW, is the only Xbox 360 game I play constantly. I most likely wouldn't own the 360 if it wasn't for this game. The funny thing is (at least to me) that I like the game for reasons it was not intended for. My favorite multiplayer mode is warzone. I really dig it because you can shoot your enemy until he is down and then have your way with him. And by have your way with him I mean tea bag him, nail him from behind, make him toss your salad, slap his ass, smoke tag him and then nail him from behin.. ect. The possibilities are endless. Yes, it's juvenile but it makes me laugh. It's a real treat to hear the guy who you raped yell at you at the end of the match. Apparently people don't like to be sodomized. Who knew?"

RDLee Free Insanity: Aaron Wood

FINALLY Aaron Wood breaks his silence, in this special, exclusive shoot interview with RDLee. I ask him all the hard questions about his rivalry with Canadian Bulldog and Zah, about his alliance with Fritz Stephey, about JG paying him royalties and finally which WWI message board user he would most like to vanish! A special thanks goes out to Aaron Wood for agreeing to give me the exclusive first and only interview he has ever done! So go ahead and read the interview below...

RDLee: "Thank you for joining me today, let's get down to business shall we?"

AW: "OK then. How much for those oranges?"

RDLee: "Question number one, Do you really hail from Scotland or is it just a rumor?"

AW: "Of course. But here's the thing, is Scotland actually real? I mean, people think the Loch Ness Monster is real, but it's not...maybe the whole country is mythical as well???"

RDLee: "Is your god given birth name actually Aaron Bartholomew Wood II?"

AW: "Not quite. It's Aaron Barholomew Chareth Singeon Bartholomew Smith-Smythe-Smith Wood LOLOAQICI82QB4IP"

RDLee: "What are your thoughts on fellow WWI writer Canadian Bulldog?"

AW: "I think he could be a fine worker if the WWE actually put him on TV. There's no good in signing Davey Smith's son and not using him..."

RDLee: "When and how did this feud with Bulldog start? Is it jealousy over something?"

AW: "Well, the truth is that I discovered that he did some "adult" entertainment aimed at other people of a homosexual persuasion under the name Spanks Hardbody. He seems to have taken against for some reason. I mean, what he wants (or needs) to do to make money is absolutely his business and no-one else's."

RDLee: "Why do you think Zah jumped in and started to bash you as well?"

AW: "I would like to refer you to the previous answers and allow you to draw your own conclusions about "Pete Hutt"...

RDLee: "Do you have any tips on who Zah and/or Canadian Bulldog really are behind their gimmicks?

AW: "I've discovered more about those two than I ever needed to know..."

RDLee: "Why is it do you think that Bulldog and Zah continue to bully you and say you suck?"

AW: "I don't know. I mean, the only thing I truly suck at is figuring out how the tax system works. Those two...well..."

RDLee: "We have been hearing rumblings about a Aaron Wood/Fritz Stephey alliance, any truth to that?"

AW: "My people are talking to his people. I think he's kinda like the US in WW2. He doesn't really want to get involved, but if provoked, he could climb on board..."

RDLee: "If you ran into Bulldog or Zah on the streets, would they run away or try to be your best friend due to fear?"

AW: "If they ran into me on the street, they'd hit the pavement. I'm one wide and fat fucker...hard to shift..."

RDLee: "Do you feel that James Guttman should be paying you royalties from his upcoming book?"

AW: "You mean he's not?"

RDLee: "Do you consider yourself a role model for young children?"

AW: "I don't know about "Role model", but I'm certainly very easy to "roll". As I said earlier, I'm rather round."

RDLee: "If you could vanish any member from the WWI message boards for good, who would it be and why?"

AW: "I wish to leave this question unanswered due to the foul language that would be required to be used. Suffice to say, if they don't know who they are by now, then they'll stay utterly retarded and they should never have come back..."

RDLee: "What is next on your agenda, a possible jump from WWI to Wrestlezone or The Torch?"

AW: "No, but Rick Scaia of OO is after me, seeking an upgrade since Canadian Bulldog left."

RDLee: "Thank you so much for setting the record straight today, I wish you the best of luck in all your future endevours"

AW: "What? I'm fired????? You can't fire me! You don't have the power! You're name isn't RDGuttman!!!"

Look What I Got!

That's right people, I just got Heroes: Season 2 on Blu-Ray today!
Which is a whole 5 days earlier than you! HA HA!
And yes... that is my hand and it is that sexy!

And on a side note, Bob gives it 2 thumbs up...

Too Human, Too Long?

Last night at 11:00 p.m. on the dot, me and my cousin Vertigo Fox played some co-op on the new Xbox 360 game Too Human. We played the 2nd level of the game and we had no problems cruising right through the level..... which literally lasted FOREVER!!!

I told Vertigo that I was hoping to go to bed around 12 midnight, but due to the lack of save points (which is annoying as hell by the way) We ended up beating the level at around 2:30 a.m......
That's right folks! It took 3 and a half hours to beat ONE level!!!!!

Now normally this would be great news to me and anyone else, knowing that the game has a longer lifespan than most, but without being able to save at ANY point during the level is disheartening. So because of this, I can tell you that the game is very fun, but I would recommend you to renting this before buying if only for that reason.

New Green 360 Controller

If anyone wants to get me a Christmas gift, this is what I want!

Two Great Wrestling Books to Pre-Order

If you are a fan of wrestling like me, and like to enjoy a nice read with plenty of knowledgable insight and witty commentary then do youself a big favor and pre-order both of these books today!

The first one is written by the head of World Wrestling (The only good wrestling site I ever read) James Guttman, this is his second book after the previous one WWI: "The Decline and Fall of a Family Empire" captured the hearts of wrestling fans around the world. JG (as us cool kids call him) combines humor and honest opinions about the wackiness in pro wrestling. From personal experience I would say that you would be silly not to give his first and second book a try, and I guarantee you will not be disappointed.

The second book is his first. Mike Rickard is another columnist/audio host on and is one of the FEW, TRUE wrestling historians out there. When it comes to his articles and/or audios you can't help but enjoy being educated by this man's knowledge and charming wit of pro wrestling. I will be picking this book up as well and I hope some of you take a chance and buy one as well. I promise you that you will be very pleased with either or both books pictured above.

I posted the links to the Amazon preorder pages for both books on the right of the blog. What are you waiting for? PRE-ORDER NOW!

Univeral to go "Green-Ray" with the Hulk

The upcoming release of The Incredible Hulk is pure marketing genius and will be coming to Blu-ray in October with limited edition “Green-ray” packaging and BD-Live features, and will feature a limited edition 3-D lenticular cover.

Also promised on the upcoming release will be BD-Live connectivity, including a “My Chat” feature allow multiple users to watch the movie simultaneously, as well as possible additional web-enabled features to be announced at a later date.

October 21, 2008 is the street date for the Blu-ray, which is day-and-date with the standard DVD. Personally, I can’t wait!

Parasite Eve Sequel Announced

I am beyond happy after reading about the newly announced PSP game "The Third Birthday" which is a sequel/spin-off of one of my favorite games growing up, Parasite Eve. It's being made in the same tone as FF7: Crisis Core, meaning that rather than being a direct sequel the game will feature Aya Brea in a different storyline.

This just became another great reason to own a PSP.

The pic above is currently the only screenshot available for the game which is expected to be out late next year. I can't wait!!!

"THE" New WWE Diva's Champion???

The Brian Kendrick won the WWE Diva's title on Smackdown!
Here is a pic of him celebrating his title victory with the belt!
And congratulations to anyone who actually believed this B.S. story. LOL!
While your here, Go ahead and bookmark my blog. I have no shame!


IT'S TIME for the world to learn why "RDLee = Ratings"
