Cageside Seats Weekly RECs: Week ending Dec. 14

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.

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

The cSs REC Awards:

From the "Cageside Seats Weekly RECs: Week ending Dec. 7" thread:

Thanks, Dick. I’ll just have to console myself with my ability to proofread my own work. by s1rude on Dec 9, 2012 1:53 PM EST 7 recs

and also from the same thread...

s1rude, you clearly need to add some more Chyna porn to your weekly feature if you want it to get some REC love. The three C’s: counting, compiling, Chyna. Kurt Angle’s three I’s are sooooooo 10 years ago. by Kanenite on Dec 9, 2012 1:20 PM EST 3 recs

From the "Daily Open Thread for Dec. 9, 2012" thread:

Smarks won't enjoy, well maybe they will. I woke up, hungover, passed out on my buddy’s couch from watching the Nate Diaz fight, and you know harming my liver. Stumbled over his 100lb mutt, cleaned my face and headed to the gym. Not a lot of people in there, I change, throw on some stinky ass gear from my gym bag, and head to the floor. Not 15 minutes later, what do I see, a white silverback gorilla lifting. I go back to telling myself I’m way too hungover to be here, and then I realize HOLY SHIT that’s John Cena. My first thought is to not interupt him in his natural habitat(full disclosure my second thought was HOLY SHIT he does own clothes other than khaki shorts and WWE shirts) but its John Cena so I have to approach. I autopilot my way over to him in between his sets, and muster out, “You’re awesome”, to which he responds, “Thanks” and shakes my hand. I then left the gorilla to his iron. So I met John Cena while I reeked of Coors Original, and day old gym clothes, and all I could say to him was, “You’re awesome”. So even if Daniel Bryan is my favorite and Chris Hero was the best I’ve seen in person, I feel like I should only chant “Let’s go Cena” from now on. by silverandblack88 on Dec 9, 2012 11:49 AM EST 2 recs

From the "TNA 'Final Resolution' results and live match coverage TONIGHT (Dec. 9) from Orlando" thread:

Seven. He has made seven picks. Which is good, because that is the number we are each allowed to make, this time around. by ReverendKain on Dec 9, 2012 8:02 PM EST 1 recs

and also from the same thread...

Nolan it’s like that time when I almost asked you about your opinion on Lord Tensai but then I figured I should get to know you better first. I’m still working up to that level. by Kanenite on Dec 9, 2012 9:51 PM EST 5 recs


I'll tell you what I think about Tensai. I’m a hoeski. by s1rude on Dec 9, 2012 9:53 PM EST 1 recs


also...YOUR MOM. GAY JOKE. POOP. by joliemadchen on Dec 9, 2012 9:58 PM EST 1 recs


After Jesus was crucified, they hit him with a trash can lid. by TJLethal on Dec 9, 2012 10:43 PM EST 1 recs


And then he "Christed-Up" and made his big babyface comeback. by s1rude on Dec 9, 2012 10:45 PM EST 1 recs

Even if [Randy Orton is] not seriously hurt he should wear a cast for a couple years. Family tradition and all. by ReverendKain on Dec 10, 2012 11:28 AM EST 3 recs

It’s like when one partner doesn’t give quite everything you want so you occasionally go elsewhere for some butt play on the side. by Kanenite on Dec 10, 2012 12:39 PM EST 5 recs

From the "WWE Raw results and live blog for Dec. 10: The TLC go home show" thread:

Tonight Ambrose hopefully reveals his plan. “It’s simple. We kill the Ryback”. by Flashking on Dec 10, 2012 5:54 PM EST

“Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. We are tonight’s entertainment! I only have one question. Where is Paul Heyman?” by Buckeye Brawler on Dec 10, 2012 6:35 PM EST


"Wrestling is like gravity. All you need is a little push.” by Phinsphana on Dec 10, 2012 6:42 PM EST


Do I really look like a guy with a plan? You know what I am? I’m a dog chasing cars. I wouldn’t know what to do with one if I caught it! You know, I just, do things. The WWE has plans, the WWE Universe have plans, Ryback’s got plans. You know, they’re schemers. Schemers trying to control their worlds. I’m not a schemer. I try to show the schemers how, pathetic, their attempts to control things really are. So, when I say, ah, come here, when I say that you and your wrestling organization was nothing personal, you know that I’m telling the truth. by Maclovio Williams on Dec 10, 2012 7:12 PM EST


“Those nWo fools want you gone so they can get back to the way things were. But I know the truth: there’s no going back. You’ve changed things … forever.” by Buckeye Brawler on Dec 10, 2012 7:21 PM EST


(Ryback) Why do you want to pin me? (Dean) I-I don’t want to pin you! What would I do without you? Go back to ripping off Indie dealers? No, no, NO! No. You… you… Complete me. by Phinsphana on Dec 10, 2012 7:42 PM EST


We come not as conquerors but as liberators to return control of the WWE to the people. by Jonathan Loesche on Dec 10, 2012 7:46 PM EST


I think I figured it out. John Cena went into that locker room to sign autographs. by Kanenite on Dec 10, 2012 8:42 PM EST 1 recs


[On why The Rock gets a title shot] Something something, gay joke, pie, virginity by joliemadchen on Dec 10, 2012 9:03 PM EST


Yeah. Since last Christmas. Mick Foley magic. He gave up his ability to walk so Hornswaggle could speak. Probably shouldn’t have though, since it turns out Hornswaggle is an asshole. by TJLethal on Dec 10, 2012 9:35 PM EST 1 recs

From the "WWE Raw results and reactions from last night (Dec. 10): The TLC go home show" thread:

I thought the show was pretty decent. Good wrestling and Cody’s moustache will let a lot of things slide. But I freakin’ love the picture you guys are running with the article. Cody looks like he’s Dr. Strange about ready to bust out some Crimson Bands of Cyttorak or use the Eye of Agamotto to pluck Miz’s crappy insults out of his mind before he can even speak them. by ReverendKain on Dec 11, 2012 2:35 PM EST 3 recs


the satchel should form a stable with Otunga’s mug, Barrett’s waistcoat and Zigglers asscape. They can be locked in a perpetual feud with Cena’s Rainbow Coalition of merch. by s1rude on Dec 11, 2012 9:57 PM EST 5 recs

From the "WWE TLC 2012 free live streaming pre-show features a 'Santa's Helper' number one contender Diva battle royal" thread:

Best Thing They Could Do Here...

…have all of the divas walkout on the battle royal. Cut a big promo about respect and how they’re wrestlers and it’s bullshit like this that’s keeping anyone from taking them seriously. They go on strike until they get the proper treatment.

…except Eve. Eve being the perfect, suck-up, power-hungry heel that she is goes to McMahon and say she thought it was a great idea. She shows up every week for whatever ridiculous match or idea or gimmick they have planned and wins, uncontested.

All of this leads to Vince giving in and offering the Divas a legit, no-gimmicks Royal Rumble match of their own leading into Mania. Where Kharma returns, wrecks shop, and then obliterates Eve at WM29 and kicks off a new era of legit women’s wrestling that will rival the glory days of Trish/Lita/Jazz/Ivory/Molly Holly/Mickie/etc.

…or we get AJ’s thighs and Lawler making some odd “jingle bells” or “stuffing a stocking” joke.

and also from the same thread...

Yes, brother, Hulk Hogan will f**k himself, jack. Never doubt the Hulkster’s ability to put himself back in the spotlight, brother. You see, never the Hulkster ever does is by accident. You know the time, brother, when put suntan oil on Brooke’s tight ass, brother, I knew the paparazzi was there. I knew they would take a picture of it, and TMZ would say something about me being a freak and a creep, brother. They brought it hook, line, and sinker, jack. It got people talking about the ol Hulkster. by TheMasterGeek on Dec 12, 2012 11:09 PM EST 1 recs

Honestly, if [Hardy] came to the ring wearing only assless chaps and a ball gag... the only surprising thing would be the lack of facepaint. by Ecstasy with Extra Cheese on Dec 13, 2012 8:47 PM EST
