We're back with yet another dose of amazing work injected by you, the Cageside commenters. Many of you have impressed us all by producing some amazing work and golden comments yet again. So it's that time of the week to recognize the excellent FanPosts, FanShots, and comments that were the "Best in the World" (of Cageside) this past week.
Again, thanks to Cagesider Ecstasy with Extra Cheese for cleverly naming our Weekly Cageside Commenters Awards the RECs, which perfectly sums up what this series tries to do. After all, without all of you, Cageside Seats would not be the greatest pro wrestling website on the Internet.
So, without further ado, we present to you...
The cSs REC Awards: Recognizing Excellence in Contributing
FOR EXCELLENCE IN AUTHORING OF FANPOSTS:
- Cagesider Clownburger thought about the sense and nonsense in today's WWE
- Cagesider The Notorious Eddie Mac presented the WWE midseason Slammys
FOR EXCEPTIONAL PRODUCTION OF FANSHOTS:
- Cagesider ukalele wondered what a mashup of Ryback and Goldberg would look like
- Cagesider DarkTalon pointed us to an interview where CM Punk showed his love for comic books
FOR SUPREMACY IN COMMENTING IN THE THREADS*:
RVD is like watching that pathetic uncle of yours proving he can still compete in athletics "like you young whippersnappers" and then wham bam you're calling the ambulance because some old dude broke his back.

60+ minutes of that match was storytelling. A ‘resthold' isn't a bad thing in and of itself if it's logical - two spider monkeys trading high spots can amount to nothing more than the parallel bars gymnastics in the olympics, a lot of flashy stuff that's ultimately useless.

From the "WWE says WrestleMania 28 made over $100 million for Miami" thread:
Quick research: The Super Bowl had an economic impact of $200-250 million in 2012. The Final Four had an economic impact of $30-50 million in 2011. The Sugar Bowl had an impact of $137.28 million in 2009 for New Orleans. The Orange Bowl brings in $100-150 million for Miami. It seems Wrestlemania is number two for events with rotating venues in the US. However, it is behind the major college bowl games, which have a fixed site.

From the "WWE 'Raw' results and live blog for Oct. 15: 'The Decision' with CM Punk" thread:
and also from the same thread...
He handled the subsequent punishment and de-push like a pro though. There's something to be said for a man to acknowledge, through everything but words, that "yeah, I fucked up".
