Our weekly awards column for recognizing excellence in contributions -- The RECs, featuring you, the Cageside community.
We're back with yet another serving of amazing work by you, the Cageside commenters. Many of you have impressed us all by producing some amazing work and golden comments. So it's that time again to recognize the excellent FanPosts, FanShots, and comments that were the Best In The World (of Cageside) this past week.
Oh, and a shout out again to our very own Cagesider Ecstasy with Extra Cheese; thanks to him we have that clever name for 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 Cageside RECs: Recognizing Excellence in Contributing:
FOR EXCELLENCE IN AUTHORING OF FANPOSTS:
- Cagesider IRodC shared a high flying affair from King of Trios 2009: Night 2

(on Scott Hall vs. Razor Ramon)
Ramon by DQ It'd start off pretty even. They are the same person, after all. However, I'd imagine Razor would take the early advantage and start to break away. His offense is bound to be far more logical, largely because he's not Scott Hall. However, Nash would probably run in as Razor set up the Razor's Edge (possibly after the big fallaway slam.) At that point, a beatdown would likely ensue and Razor's chains would get stolen.
TL;DR: Nash bails Hall out from a whooping, Razor by DQ.
P.S. I'm assuming this is WCW/WWE Scott Hall we're talking about here. I don't think the world could handle the facial hair explosion of AWA Scott Hall's mustache vs. WWF Scott Hall's stubble.

This, to me, is like pitting a decent cut of beef against some prime quality oysters in a cook off... the latter will probably alienate your average person while the former is so accessible in it's appeal that the result of a poll on which is "the best" will probably be fairly uninteresting.

From the "Cagside Seats Weekly Comenter Awards (RECs): Week ending Sept. 28" thread:
Yay, I won another award. My goal is to be the Meryl Streep of CSS. Either people will be completely indifferent towards me, or whenever I win someone will say "not this asshole again".
P.S. I'm not fond of Meryl Streep. I just wanted to clarify, in case it wasn't obvious.

From the "WWE Raw results and live blog for Oct. 1: The Ryback Attacks" thread:
And also from the same thread...
From the "WWE names the top 50 good guys in pro wrestling history" thread:
From the "Video: Ryback and Tensai botch from WWE Monday Night Raw on Oct. 1" thread:
Botch? Tensai is veteran wrestler who had obviously scouted THE Ryback's moves and blocked his finisher not once but nearly twice. This sorta veteran know how has moved Tensai into my fave 50... ...sorry A-Ry, you gots to go.

"We have 3 times as many dummies watching our terrible content, as the UFC has dummies watching their own terrible content" There are certain things you shouldn't brag about.

From the "TNA 'Impact Wrestling' reactions from tonight (Oct. 4) by a teenage girl" thread:
If TNA is a roller coaster...could they be Splash mountain? Only instead of water waiting at the bottom, it's the sweat and shame of Hulkamania.
Or perhaps, its the log ride at busch gardens(if you haven't been there, I apologize.). The ride gears up and it is smooth sailing, a few small splashes here and there, but no big deal. Then in the distance you see a buzzsaw coming, you reassure yourself it won't hurt you but secretly your brain asks "what if it does?". The saw gets closer and closer before the bottom drops out and your sent plummeting down into the water below. The saw didn't maim you for life and it was a fun ride, but in the end you're still soaked, and now you have to walk around the theme park wet for the rest of the day.
In closing, Cagesiders, don't forget this series is all about YOU; so if you think I missed anything, or have any suggestions or tweaks for the Cageside RECs, please let us know in the comments below or email one of the site editors through our Masthead page.
Bring it on with some awesome award-winning stuff for next week's RECs. Until then, see ya in the threads!
Remember, you can't win a Cageside REC Award* if you don't play, er um contribute.
