Cageside Seats Weekly RECs: Week ending Dec. 21

Cageside Features: Our very own Cageside 'REC' Awards, for "Recognizing Excellence in Contributions from the Cageside Community". Are you a winner of the Interwebs? Could you be? Let's find out...

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.

As always, thanks to Cagesider Ecstasy with Extra Cheese for cleverly naming our Weekly Cageside Commenters Awards "The RECs", which perfectly sums up what this feature tries to do. After all, without all of you, Cageside Seats would not be the greatest pro wrestling website on the Internet.

Before we get to the fun, however, a quick apology to those who wished to see more REC's for the "AJ Lee says hi to all you Cagesiders" thread. I made a judgment call on the comments, and many of you disagreed with it. The REC's are for you guys, and I do not wish to deny anyone what is due. So this is a delayed REC to all the great comments in the thread.

Also, because this is the season of giving, there are a higher number of REC's being handed out this week. There were a lot of great comments, and I did not wish to deny anyone an award they deserved.

So, without further ado, we present to you...

The cSs REC Awards:

new gimmick: Show should do the austin thing when austin listen to his watch before giving someone a beat down. Show should listen to his chair and ask should I hit him? by tutliu on Dec 19, 2012 4:12 AM EST 2 recs

From the "WWE Raw results and reactions from last night (Dec. 17): WOOOOOO!" thread:

"I refuse to call him 'Ryblack' and you shouldn't call him that either. It's bad" THANK YOU. It’s straight up ignorant and sophomoric and, perhaps worst of all, it’s right up Vince McMahan’s racializng alley. How can fans poke at Vince’s race teams, while doing, pretty much, the same shit? How can fans look down on WWE’s misogynistic booking, while unironically regurgitating the deranged and devious slut trope WWE is so intent on giving AJ? by sun yue on Dec 18, 2012 7:28 AM EST 5 recs

and also from the same thread...

It's not about racializing Big E. It’s about pointing out how generic the character is. You could call him Mark Henry Jr. (Seriously, it’s Henry’s Nation outfit) or Bob-E Lashley and have the same effect. by Flashking on Dec 18, 2012 9:24 AM EST 9 recs

and...

Exactly Hell, Ryback got the treatment himself when he debuted and people were calling him Ryberg. If some white guy came in and copied Mark Henry or Booker T’s gimmick, we’d make fun of him too. I think "Ryblack" is hilarious. by Mister Wednesday Afternoon on Dec 18, 2012 9:51 AM EST 4 recs

and...

SOULBERG! by IRodC on Dec 18, 2012 7:34 PM EST 5 recs

and...

You know I agree I have gone on a 80% cheering of all the heels and how they tell the truth. My 12 year old nephew had no clue what I am talking about so I had him watch the Attitude era on you tube and told him to listen to what every heel has to say dont ignore their argements and ever since then he has started cheering every one I cheer and feels that the heels speak the truth while the face lie through there teeth. Ha I dont know what I started but he goes against every 12 and 13 year old in his class. Ha I love being an influence. by dandeman on Dec 18, 2012 2:39 PM EST 1 recs

From the "WWE SmackDown results and live blog for Dec. 18: Super special and commercial free" thread:
