I Can’t Stop Writing About WSX

Mar
09

WSX just won’t die, so Tanvir keeps writing about it. Sorta.

I am a big fan of the near-scalping of billionaires. Actually, I’m just a big fan of scalping anybody. The customs of Native Americans are something that I endorse.

There’s more good inside.

WSX Eulogy

Mar
01

When I heard the news, it hit me like a ton of bricks. “How could this have happened?”, I wondered. It was unfortunate; I knew things weren’t looking good after the snafu a few weeks ago, but I didn’t expect this to happen so soon.

Tanvir says goodbye.

WSX #3

Feb
28

Tanvir’s thoughts on the show, before it even aired:

WRESTLING SOCIETY X IS ON AND WILL BE COMPLETELY NOT MEMORABLE TO MOST, EXCEPT MESSAGEBOARD POSTERS WHO WILL TRY TO ONE-UP EACH OTHER ON USELESS PROFESSIONAL WRESTLING TRIVIATA.

How can you not read the recap after that?

WSX #2

Feb
07

Wrestling Society X is a great wrestling product. There are lotsa guys flipping around all over the place, a crowd full of actors woefully playing the parts of “wrestling fans” and a fanbase consisting of 16 year old boys and 35 year old men, who are both trying not to get kicked out of their parents’ basement again.

Tanvir’s recap of show #2.

Tanvir’s Almost End Of The Year Review

Nov
26

It’s almost 2007. I am now 25.5 years old and god damn, I feel old and almost dying. A bad back, an aching sense of godliness and a desire to sing that Kajagoogoo song has led me to the end of the year wondering, “damn, what the fuck happened?” Instead of waiting for the Time Magazine version of what went down this year, I plan on covering ALL of the major moments of the year. Why, you ask? Because I feel like it. Also, I like fulfilled my tainted ego by writing things for the internet denizens. Wrote a YEAR IN REVIEW a few years ago that, like, four of you read. I intend on having maybe two of you read this in full by making this as unreadable as possible. Do you think I can do it?

I surely hope so.
