Our weekly Cageside Features awards column for Recognizing Excellence in Contributions -- The RECs, featuring you, the Cageside community.

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...

From the "TNA 'Bound for Glory' results and live match coverage TONIGHT (Oct. 14) from Phoenix" thread:

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.

and also from the same thread...

Magnus is way too tan for a british guy, he looks like a weird Mexican.

From the "CSSGMT: (3) Shawn Michaels v Bret Hart, WrestleMania 12 vs. (14) Shawn Michaels v Triple H, Raw 2003" thread:

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 "TNA Turning Point 2012 video trailer promises 'the truth will finally be revealed' with Aces and 8s" thread:

It's obvious the leader has to be someone disgruntled with how they were handled and the lack of respect they got. The leader is Claire Lynch.

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 $[1]30-[1]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 "Video: Sting's TNA Hall of Fame ceremony highlights" thread:

Sting has tiny eyes like a rat.

From the "Hulk Hogan sex tape update: Announces $100 million lawsuit against Bubba the Love Sponge, Gawker" thread:

It was devon all along!
the aces & 8's strike again!

From the "WWE 'Raw' results and live blog for Oct. 15: 'The Decision' with CM Punk" thread:

From the "Video: Kofi Kingston botches finish in Miz match on WWE Raw; delivers a brutal head kick" 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".

From the "Kofi Kingston wins Intercontinental title from Miz one night after kicking his head off on WWE Raw"

WWE announced this because they are scared the ratings are going to take too big of a hit going against Cageside Live.

From the "WWE '13 player ratings and roster attributes stats" thread:

WWE is expecting that a lot of adult gamers will want to beat the crap out of Cena
So they made him a 96 to at least make it harder.

by Man from Manila on Oct 17, 2012 9:28 PM EDT

From the "Paul Heyman on Stephanie McMahon confrontation: I hope it was real" thread:

[Stephanie McMahon] slapped him so hard he gained 1/4" of hairline.
