In the first point I'll make, uh, Web Sheriff was once embroiled in a controversy involving none other than Taoi Cruiz (whose name is actually a really cool African name). Web Sheriff reportedly, at the time, sent a fake birth certificate using the name "Jacob Taoi Cruz" to a website called MusicBrainz.com. Unfort...

  Looks like justice has been served for the jackass that forced an innocent wrestler to cut his hair, or, be forced to forfeit a game.  The New Jersey School District that reportedly employed former referee Alan Maloney, uh, has confirmed that he has been fired in wake of the racially charged incident.

Merry Christmas from Our Family To Yours

This post is very important to me, because, I am unable to make it home this year. Due to several obligations, and then health issues, it ended up being better off for me to stay in New York City.
