Neither Richard nor Mask were part of the work.

 

Though, it seems that most all the intraweb IWC elite knows who Smokey was yet when you ask them who it was, they respond with "a dude who posts on George Steeles message board".

 

I would love to have a chat with the guy who came up with the ruse.

clawmaster wrote: Recap of Smoeater story.

One day a researcher nobody knew named Hempstead came to KM. He started a thread called Buddy Rogers 1963. He wrote about he interviewed Buddy Rogers several times and began relating his version of Buddy's story. Many people were transfixed by the story and the story got publicity all over the net. Crimson Mask for one believed every word of it. I wasn't a believer or non believer. I knew very little about Buddy's career at the time. I suspect that there were many others like me. Hempstead told his story for months.

Then one day, Hempstead's gf came on the board and said Hemp was really sick. Hempstead never returned but the story continued as Smoeater, a guy Hemp allegedly interviewed many times about Rogers, began sharing his memories. Smoeater revealed he alledgedly worked for the McMahons and was nearly 90 years old living in a nursing home. After the nursing home stuff was revealed, many people including myself began saying the story was a work. We had no proof except that a near 90 year old man posting at all hours of the day and night was a little too much to believe. Crimson Mask and many others were still transfixed by the story and believed every word of it.

The story was building to a climax. Then one day pictures were posted with the theory being Buddy was not in the ring with Bruno Sammartino the night Bruno won the WWWF Title. That it was in fact Buddy's look-a-like brother. A twin Buddy if you will. Mask still believed the story and even stated you could see the differences in the ears of the two Buddys in the pictures. By that time more people jumped off the story's bandwagon and the validity of Hempstead and Smoeater was in question.

Eventually Hemp fucked up and sent an email to somebody. His IP was revealed. He was unmasked as a researcher from a suburb of Philadelphia. I think his name was Steve. Needless to say this caused Mask huge embarrassment. Not only that but it also caused the KM board itself embarrassment.

That's the story as I remember it. People were really pissed at the end. 


Claw- thanks for the recap.  That last part is the part I missed.  I never knew they posted photos.  I guess there was a bombshell announcement at the end - a total bullshit announcement.  Hilarious.  I do recall the shit leading up to that point was pretty riveting.

Stand corrected on the CM part, everything that goes wrong on these boards can be traced back to bad traderz and workerz.

No ,CM was fooled like the rest of them. I found the story interesting at first and then it became boring, because I did not know what the hell they were talking about back in the day.  I sort of thought it was somebody like Skoaland or Altomore conveying worked stories to somebody to post.  

The big lead up moment for KM was when Buddy Rose was given a weekend or 48 hour time limit to reveal himself in the "I was there, true story" thread which Buddy and mostly his cast of supporters kept going for many months (it may have wnet over year) by bumping the thread up.  It was like over a 100 pages long.  On the old KM board, anytime you modified a past post such as adding or deleting a comma, it would bump the thread up to the No. 1 position in that forum.  People were pissed, because this thread would be buried back 7-8 pages and everybody thought the bullshit was over, and then Rose or one of his lackeys would make a minimal modification and the thread would be bumped to the top.  It was a way for Rose to get self-satisfaction and a means for him to stroke his own ego when nobody else would.  The time limit expired and nothing.  A few or several days later Buddy finally created an account with his real name.  So now he was using his real name and about 3-4 sockos.  He discussed things with himself on several occasions.

And once again, WHY WHY WHY would anybody give a fuck?  So the guy trolled an internet message board which had shitty software.  Quite often, if I see a thread that rossi started, I dont read the fucking thing.  If I do read it, I still dont give a fuck.

 

Some people.  geez.

After it all blew up, Sullivan came along to claim he was part of it and it was a book project to show how easily people could be fooled on the Internet.

There's some guy who posts on Steele's board as "Jersey Fan" who uses a lot of the same bullshit.

Steele's board is about dead, though. There are weeks with no posts and he doesn't seem to be interested in participating any more.

And that was a ruse to get people to join Bodyslam Nation, which Chris JPN had shut down, because Chris is a cunt.

Has he fooled anyone into believing he's an actual filmmaker?

A bump because I was curious, but does anyone have any more of the Hempstead or smoeater posts saved somewhere, or the actual reveal that this was all a work?

George Schire chased off many a good poster with his sanctimonious attitude.  George Steel was also a dipshit supreme over there.  I really hate that the main site went dormant.  Before Vince had kids and was able to, that site was absolutely top notch.  The Message Board had its moments but when they left EZ Board it honestly jumped the shark.

If I remember correctly it was Steve Yohe who was the first to tell Smokey he was completely full of shit.
Yohe punched giant holes in smokeys stories. Thing then quickly escalated to Buddy Rogers Earlobe because I guess the trolled knew his days were numbered.

I for one bought into the whole thing up until Yohe got involved and even though no one likes to admit it, I think 98% of you bought into it too. It was masterful fiction. Just like the Bible and the Warren Commission reports.

I didnt buy into it for 3 seconds and Im the opposite of a rasslin theoretician like the rest of you people. No way in hell a 90 year old in a nursing home knew how internet message boards worked. Then with the whole magical hospitals, wrecks, nurses and shit went down it was obvious to me. I argued it with Mask a few times and he refused to even entertain the possibility that it was bullshit until he absolutely had to, not unlike the rest of you stupid fagits who need to be murdered.
