Rose was an ass.  Yeah, there were other former workers who had the same attitude, but Buddy was right up there on the list with Pringle in throwing tantrums and being able to dish it out but could not take it.   Buddy was worse than Pringle when it came to disrupting discussions.  When he was finally reprimanded on KM, he went through a major meltdown.  Pringle was a dick, and you knew what you were getting with him.   Rose was actually so annoying in general discussions that people left.  The multiple usernames got very old and stale.

It was just that he was a dick in each of the sockos.

I never got the Buddy Rose hate myself.  He was arrogant, but other than Ken Timbs I've never come across anyone who was in the biz and on these boards who wasn't.  He certainly wasn't anywhere close to as big a dick as Percy Pringle.  I got along well with Rose and we PM'ed occasionally.  I took everything he said with a grain of salt, but I think he also had a lot of good info.

Pringle at least would leave on his own when he felt slighted even though he came back occasionally. Rose was, as noted by rossi (lol) arrogant as all hell.

Even if he was "working" on the board, he should have realized that it wasn't going over very well at a certain point and evened his posts out a little. He never did, or even tried that I could see.

Dude was a great wrestler and I bet had tons to share that he never did because he wanted to play the heel on a rasslin message board. Too bad.

I'm with Voo 100%. Rose created user names to back himself, which was ridiculous. 

My only enjoyment of Rose was playing him on MWTapes abortion clinic.

I never got if Rose was "playing heel" and basically trolling, or if he was really that insecure (i.e. defending himself with multiple user names).  It was pretty transparent and I got a kick out of it because of how obvious it was, and yet how upset it made so many people.  I guess by that point I didn't take the discussions very seriously anymore so I didn't care about the disruptions.  At the beginning, I thought KM had a treasure trove of information, but after a couple of years of the same discussions again and again and being able to search almost anything you had questions about, I found the place so redundant and tired with the normal smark shit that I enjoyed Rose.  I just hope for his sake that he was having fun with it and enjoying himself and not taking it as seriously as some think he was.

No, he had some serious meltdowns.  I always thought they were fueled by D & A or both.  He was a very insecure character.  I should have saved his PMs.

I knew Rose well. And those of us who were his friends would just say it was Buddy being Buddy.

Buddy was an interesting guy for sure. There were times we talked all the time, then there were times he would perceive something as a slight and I wouldn't hear from him for months. And nearly everyone, including his closest friends will say the same thing.

When talking with friends or family that knew him before he got deep into the business and into the drugs you would get a completely different impression of him. Even years into the business he didn't drink or do pills or touch any drugs. He could almost be mistaken for Jerry Lawler as he would drink a half gallon of chocolate milk and each a burger after his match.

Wrestling really affected him as I've seen with other people who have reached some level of fame it can be worse than drugs. And like a lot of celebrities they do get to become paranoid and insecure.

When you got him alone he was different, he was Paul. And when he was Paul he was great. One weekend he was staying at my house as we were working on his book and hanging out. We went to a Rick Springfield concert who Buddy loved and knew him from back in the early 80's. Had a good time and met up with Rick later and shot the shit. Then we watched tapes, Memphis tapes which Buddy hadn't seen a lot of. It was like he was transformed back into a young adult who was just a wrestling fan.

I hate to say anything negative about Buddy because he was good to me for the most part, we did have a falling out but then he pulled a Buddy and everything was good and nothing was said about it. But he did have his demons obviously. He also had a lot of good attributes as well.

As for his vices, drinking was never the issue later on in life but pills were.

I remember one of his meltdowns just after Claw became a mod over their (it was a brief tenure IIRC). We were in a chat one night and he was telling us about having to chase Rose and his socko's posts all over KM to delete them because of the content.

So yeah, Buddy had some issues I suppose.

rossi, I get why you liked him in the sense that you described it in your last post. For those of us that hadn't been around KM or the message board world for very long, Rose and what he was doing was kind of hard to make sense of.

He was just fuckin around on the internet. Its not like as if his 600 lb ass could go out on the town anymore. Rose was ok to me. I enjoyed his fucking with Mask and the rest of you. Feelers were broken.

Buddy took on the persona of a woman at WCMB not too long before his death. This "lady" sang the praises of on Buddy Rose until he was outted. It would have been funny if it weren't so sad.

At times it was Buddy. But he also had a friend named Theresa who would post as that girl (can't remember the posters name) and Theresa lived in the Florida panhandle. Of course Buddy would feed he what to say. I knew her well as we would talk (she had an incredibly hot daughter)
There were times Buddy would ask myself or other friends to comment on a message.
