I'm a newb, so please don't pelt too much garbage at me if I'm wrong: but "KM"= "KayfabeMemories", right?

I'll agree that it has gone downhill. From about 2001-2005, it was a great resource with some well-informed guys sharing their knowledge with us "kids" (Mask was awesome and helped me fill in a LOT of blanks).

I'll try to find something interesting there, nowadays, but I'm gone after about 30 seconds.

When the 1989 rule came along, a lot of folks took it too literally. It was implemented to kill threads like: "The Ho is Pregnant", when somebody posted something like that as a reaction to Stephanie McMahon's "pregnancy" angle (in... 2002?)

Some were in an uproar because they'd mention WrestleMania 6 (1990)... and a wannabe mod would scold them for going past 1989. Chaos would ensue. The 1989 rule was there to create focus and not censorship. Perfectly fine saying: "Umaga reminds me of Kamala in 1984". Not a good idea to say: "list your favorite Kurt Angle matches".

They lost a lot of traffic and contributors when they had to switch domains, circa 2003. I was fairly active, up until that point. Very limited, since.


I remember JJ Dillon posted there for about a month. George Steele did, for a bit, but got booted after he had some questionable opinions when Miss Elizabeth died.

When Steele was active, I at least got to thank him for inadvertently helping me with my speech impediment in 1985; by way of those silly "therapy" skits he did. So that still makes me smile.

Yes.  And the 1989 rule was ridiculous, especially after everyone ran out of things to talk about.

I had the distinct honor of George pitching me on his MLM business for health products. I explained that since I grew up in and spent 27 years in NJ, that cancer was already in my genes.

I agreed with the 1989 rule to a degree.  It was a site based on the past, and there were posters coming on just to talk about the current product.  There had to be type of rule or cut-off point to how far discussions could take the expansion.  The other territories were gone so there would have been no worry there.  I always said that there were plenty of other sites to go to discuss the current shit on TV.  Why would you go to that type of nostalgic site and try to push in the new product.  Maybe an exclusive forum of it's own for current wrestling would have worked.  Also, they went overboard nitpicking any reference to anything post-1989.

I never bothered to read up on the whole Honky Tonk Man thing-- like there was a poster who was pretending to be Honky in disguise...or some BS. May have been the same guy who did the whole "Lex Luger trunks" thing.

Forgot about "re-writing the book" until I went though this entire thread. Sweet boobs, those were awful. The guy had one featuring Sting vs. Bruiser Brody as the main event of WrestleMania VI. Huh?

Anybody remember "The Richster" (or a guy named Richard SomethingOrAnother) with his stupid questions like: "why did Nikolai Volkoff change his ring jacket?" or "why did Dino Bravo choke out Ken Patera after their tug-of-war? That was not a nice thing to do". That guy had to have been a work, right?

I remember The Richster, and I miss jogging Clawmaster about it. We would sporadically send messages or post about our memories of The Richster. LOL. Good stuff! Always brought up WWF ice cream bars.

Is the "Rewriting of the Book" the guy who posts like soap opera novels at KM? Where in the hell does he find all the time to write those things? They got tiresome after awhile.

There were some serious characters:
Damiende-"what was his finisher"
Coodeville-loved Bruno's musculature and hairiness
Goku-traded tapes with descriptions like no other
Lucious Johnny-I think might have been a troll. Voo hated him.
Buddy Rose & his 8 sock puppets
Smoeter, Donna, Tiger, Hempstead
Richard Sullivan and 12 sockos
Necrosis-I read part of the end of the Rogers thread and it's basically this guy.

Was Willy numbers from KM?

HBF - You are correct! What a cast of characters! It was fun, though, with those posters when you look back on it.

Dystopias or something like that with those real deep but entertaining posts.

Coodeville showed up with the rest of the looney tunes on Steele's message board.

It was something about God and/or Christianity. KM went overboard and warned him about religious dialogue is not permitted. George got pissed and left. George takes his religion seriously and sometimes takes it to the fringe. George started a message which was a train wreck.

There were two who came on at the same time with sort of Game of Thrones type names. Something like Amberon and Hexagon. Tended to do long, analytical posts.

Yes, I think that one I mentioned was one of them was it not?

Necrosis was in that clique I think.  The Hexagon-type name I remember, we were friendly for a while.  They were big into philosophy, humanism, atheism, etc.  They invited me to another board they moderated together that dealt with that stuff, but I only posted a handful of times.
