LOL, holy shit those last two paragraphs though.  My god, this entire thing is cringe.  From Nash’s post to Mike Johnson’s race to get the obit up before he actually dies to those last two paragraphs about “lessons learned”.  Get fucked.

I like Mike but he tries way too hard.  He's just not a great writer.  He's competent enough by wrestling standards if he's just putting together a narrative of someone's career, but attempting the flowery language and the life lessons is cringe indeed.  This is a C- in any high school English class.

I mean, dragging out the "lessons learned" narrative in someone's obit may be on par with Mask's "He got sideways with me a few times.  RIP."
In all seriousness, Mike Johnson must have another full-time job, right?  This wrestling journalist thing is just a side gig I would assume?  He can't be making more than $50 a week writing these pieces.

No, Johnson and Scherer have often said they've been full-time at the website for many years now.  I can't imagine what annual salaries look like, but they make enough to survive apparently.

Speaking of Mask, I see he dusted off his medical license to chime in on the situation over at KKK:


"When your body acclimates to running on substances, the shift back to running on food, water and air can be a fatal shock. There's a point past which it's just too late. The problem is you don't know till you try.

It's too bad, but actions have consequences.

Hell of a performer in his prime."

That's pretty generic medical advice, but I'm sure the sycophants on there enjoy him sharing those pearls of wisdom.

Yes, tame stuff compared to the medical knowledge on display there when Brodie Lee died.

I'm going to hold off on judging that prognosis until I hear from Wong Lee.

Not seeing it reported anywhere yet. This is turning into a Monty Python sketch.

Me neither. There are RIPs all over twitter but they are either preemptive posts or people trying deliberately mislead people for whatever reason.

Yeah, our package of stories and photos is ready, but I try to take the high road.

I like Mike Johnson as a person, and his connections are incredible compared to mine ... but yeah, his writing can be something. But generally it's more decipherable than Meltzer.

People are having flame wars about whether it’s respectful or disrespectful to offer condolences and share thoughts on Hall before he’s officially dead. A lot of people have too much time on their hands. This could’ve been avoided if Nash had just stayed off Twitter. But he’s clearly brain dead if they’re about to pull the plug, so I don’t see the point in these arguments. It’s splitting hairs now.
