Statement From Maffew

30 Submitted by on Fri, 11 January 2013, 20:47


Being asked to be part of the relaunched Wrestlecrap is a huge honour for me. I remember vividly discovering The Crap back in 2001 when googling ”Aldo Montoya”. Here was a site with humour and information (back in the dark ages before YouTube and fire were invented) that focused on the side of wrestling you weren’t supposed to focus on.

God knows the bad moments in wrestling far outnumber the good ones, but rare is it the bad moments are brought up or mentioned. Only in the past few years has WWE openly made reference to such blunders as The Shockmaster and Paul Roma: Horseman. Nearly all bad gimmicks and angles went to the same magical place that household pets end up that must never be spoken about. But Wrestlecrap decided to focus on these things, defiantly going against the short-memory expectations wrestling companies asked of it’s fans. Like a sarcastic Elephant Graveyard, Wrestlecrap became a weekly fix for me.

Wrestlecrap became a common term on the internet and it resulted in Mr. Reynolds becoming a three-time published author whilst building a firm reputation as a Nice Man (boop boop). Ten years ago, I wondered how nice it would be to turn a hobby into a success without compromising myself.

The Botchamania happened and I found out that it was ”pretty hunky dory.” I don’t consider myself some sort of icon but I certainly have a Scorpio-esque feeling down below being asked to be a part of this.

I look forward to writing articles, being well known and then quickly becoming long forgotten as Wrestlecrap decided to forget about me and never reference my tenure again.

And I wouldn’t have it any other way.

    He’s already lasted longer than Savage’s stint with TNA

  3. Brian E says:

    Welcome, Maffew. As a longtime follower of both Botchamania and Wrestlecrap, seeing you here just helps puts everything into place…well, whatever can be put into place; disarray is rampant in the world of Wrestlecrap, but somehow it all works out.

    Give ’em hell, lad. You’ve got a good thing going here.

  4. Autrach Sejanoz says:

    No joke, I only found out about Botchamania last year, but having gone back & watched every single last video, I can honestly say it is nothing short of fantastic that you’re now contributing to Wrestlecrap as well.

  5. Jesse Ali says:

    Wrestlecrap acquiring Maffew is as epic as Death Row Records signing 2pac!
    Botchamania and The Crap on the same squad, I’m loving this!

    • The Great Gouki says:

      Jesse Ali, I couldn’t have said it better. Let us hope Maffew doesn’t get killed in a hail of gunfire in Las Vegas after watching a Mike Tyson get revealed as a member of D-Generation X.

    anyone else here remember when jason rivera used to write recaps for pwinsider?

  15. Semi says:

    The logical result of this is the introduction of video inductions.

  16. Mccotter says:

    The definition of a number of truly great composition blogs and forums or simply webpages to create newspaper posts?

  17. Amedar Consulting says:

    Wonderful paintings! This is the type of info that are meant to be shared around the internet. Shame on the search engines for no longer positioning this post upper! Come on over and talk over with my website . Thanks =)

  18. alexXx says:

    I think if RD and Maffew could somehow find Chris Hyatte, this would be the be-all end-all of the internet.

    • RD Reynolds says:

      Holding out hope for Al Isaacs personally.

      • Cassidy says:

        Sir Reynolds, I be not anything but a peasant in your presence, but I would like to inquire about a position on your wonderful WrestleCrap staff as a contributor. I think I have the knowledge and experience needed to fit right in. Please let me know.

  19. Trent Johnson says:

    A true wrestling icon

  20. Cassidy says:

    You are living my dream, good sir. As I too hope to branch out and contribute my vast wrestling knowledge to the world via WrestleCrap. I work for and, but I seems to fit my humorous side.

    By the way, can I get a job? I think I could be a great contributor……

  21. MightyK says:

    I was wondering when this would happen

  22. mind matter says:

    I think other website proprietors should take this web site as an example , very clean and great user friendly layout. “When we lose one blessing, another is often, most unexpectedly, given in its place.” by Clive Staples Lewis.

    Hyatte just hit Twitter. @Hyattelives.

    No joke.
