Right, I'll get straight to it. I'm quiting eFedding. Completely and permanently. It's for two reasons, the first is that I simply won't have the time any more, what with me going into an exam year, and also other life changes. Secondly, it's just not fun any more. eFedding is a hobby, and when a hobby isn't fun any more, you stop doing it. It's just feeling like more of a chore than something fun now, so yeah, that's why...
I've had a lot of fun eFedding, so I want to say thank you to everybody I've been involved in, for giving me countless hours of fun.
Thanks especially to:
The JBW, especially the JBW from about eight months ago when I first joined. Silver Ghost, R(ob), Kash, Rome, Jose, JMan, K-Jammin, SES, Leggs, Zapp and everyone else.
HWA, the place I really felt Rob Rage grew. Everyone there was a really friendly and we've had some great times. Broc, Sully, Pau, Eddie, Van and all the boys. It was a blast.
EWA, my baby. Everybody there really made it something special. Special thanks to all my creative guys; EHC, Shining, Pau and Ben. Thanks for making EWA what it was.
After a bit of thinking and a good nights sleep, I've had time to dwell on my position here on EWN. As much fun as it is participating in the feds and socialising with a lot of great people here, I've decided that I want to take a long break, possibly permanent, effective as of the end of this post.
I remember when I first came to EWN, i'd never heard of wrestling spoiler/news sites before (2011 i know!) and felt i'd give it ago sharing my opinions on the various rumours that were presented. I quickly fell into the fedding scene and EWNCW welcomed me in after I decided, rather conceitedly, that slumming it in the indies wasn't for me, how wrong I was. I wish i'd have taken the taken to start slowly and build a character from scratch, make a name for myself rather than come out of nowhere and expect everyone to believe in the hype. During that first period I never really felt that people got me, or really wanted to get me as I was just this guy who liked long promos and pretended to be clever.
I had a good run with EWNCW creative, me and TT were a good team although my temper got the better of me on a few occasions, I think of him as Vinnie Mac filtering out all the bad ideas, and myself as Russo (without all the swerves). The fiasco that was the EWNCW vs JBW period was my least favourite time of being here, rather than working together it became all too clear that we were all about out doing each other, a shame really as we coulda been a great team. Grind was there too and he was always supportive and became a really good friend, guys like eboy and TBOZ always offered ideas and help.
Then I found HWA, who also took me in after I offered my most creative and well received character to date. Erebus. Admit it, he's got the best name in the feds, you gotta give me that! I remember giving Eddie some grief over a booking call he made early on in his writer career, and I really should apologise for getting too big for my boots, you made the right call! It was really a pleasure interacting with people as Erebus, and the praise I got for playing him really meant a lot to me, when a guy like Jman tells you you're onto a winner you better believe it.
HWA collapsed and ICW opened its doors to me, and in the short time I had there I played a really fun guy who seemed quite well liked, was fun IC'ing with Shaz, Darius, VHX and all the rest. And then that was cruelly taken away from us.. twice. It wasn't Bears fault, I think we all needed to cut him a little slack at the time, writing isn't always lollipops and rainbows, there's a lot of crap you have to deal with.
Finally, I decided I was going to make a fed, we all saw how that turned out after I threw my toys out of the buggy after having my fed turned down in favour of a collaboration. Where a bigger man should and would have taken the chance to work as a team, I decided i simply couldn't be arsed, if my idea wasn't being used then i didn't want to know. Seriously, that's what it came down to, selfish ain't I?
So, enough from the biography of a whiner, and onto what i should be doing. Thank you, to everyone who took the time to talk to me, discuss ideas with me and read my promos. Thank you to TT and EWNCW for giving me my first chance, and then taking a risk on a newbie by hiring me as creative. Thanks to Broc and Sully (boooo) for letting me join HWA, and Eddie for giving me the time of day to push me as far as you did. Thanks to Bear, to everyone in ICW for IC'ing with me as Malcolm and letting me win on my first and only PPV there :P. And a big apology to R(ob) for not being big enough to accept that we both had a really good idea, and could have made a great team.
Here's our old girlfriend bashing friend Shining Light with another of his amazing stories dated 09-23-2012

As many of you will know, I come from a City called Manchester. Home of football, shopping centres and the occasional racist drunk or two. The forum users that come from England will be aware that Manchester has always had it's fair share of gangs, with it even being dubbed "Gunchester" due to several gun crimes taking place in the heart of the City.
Most recently, about 4 days ago, one gang decided to harrass my little brother. From what he told me, they basically saw him on the way back from school, started to push him around and stole his iPhone alongside some money he had on him. When he came back crying his eyes out and he told me what happened, I was so angry. Those of you who know me well will know that I am not an angry person, instead choosing to always "look on the bright side of life". But this incident just sent me over the top. When my brother described to me who had stolen his phone, I knew who it was straight away. The dickhead had previously given my friend's grandmother a ton of abuse which forced her to leave the area.
I spent the next couple of days trying to figure out what to do and on Thursday I decided to take action. I knew where the gang hung out and I headed over there to demand the iPhone and the money back. To cut a long story short, I'm now currently sat here with a broken jaw and 1 missing front tooth.
But it doesn't end there... You see obviously I wasn't going to demand the phone back just by using words, so when I was face to face with the dick who stole my brothers phone I grabbed hold of him and pinned him against the wall. It was then when the rest of the gang jumped me and well, you know the rest.
I can't keep rambling on so I'm going to have to keep it short here. I am being threatened with the charge of assault, since the gang have lied to the Police and insisted that I threw the first punch and what they did was purely in self defence. Luckily the Police didn't believe the self defence story and have managed to arrest 6 of the gang members (There was 9 in total) including the dick who stole my brothers phone and money, but they have believed that I threw the first punch.
I'm leaving the forums for a while and I don't know if I return but I'm going to say my goodbyes in the next post on this thread just in case.
IF THE MODS CAN MOVE THIS TO THE TEA SPOT, THAT'D BE GREATLY APPRECIATED. THANKS TO TOMMY FOR LETTING ME KNOW WHERE IT SHOULD GO, MEANS A LOT
Since being here at college, I have been slammed by papers, homework, classes, and social life as well. As it is, I am getting to sleep at 2 in the morning on a good night. And on top of that, I will be getting a job here too while I am at it, and because of this, I have to regrettably take a leave of absence from e-fedding, if not permanently for good. Now I know I'm not the most important figure here, but I wanted all of you to know rather then me just disappear. I am sorry to all of the eFeds I am in, especially EWNCW as I am a champion there. But I am sorry to all, I really am. Please, I hope to not be hated because of this, I just can't give my best here anymore because of time constraints. There are a few here I want to thank besides everyone here who is great:
- Tommy Thunder: You brought me into eFedding a year ago and I have loved my time here, you are a great guy I'm sorry for leaving you high and dry.
- eyehatecena: You, are a great friend man, you and I were associated in some way and I loved working with you, I'll miss you.
- Robareid: You gave me a chance to be in the first ever world title match at EWA, and I couldn't be more gracious of my time in EWA.
- bearkg88: You man, are a machine, you always deliver man, for ICW and for everywhere else, a true workhorse and a great friend.
- chunky: You were a ton of fun to be around here and working with you was awesome. I'm sorry to leave you high and dry.
- Van: You...were like my best friend here, and my number one rival. I'll miss you a ton man, honestly.
And everyone else, honestly, you all made this fun to me, thank you, just thank you all, and again, I'm sorry for this, and also if I wasn't important enough to make a goodbye thread, I am sorry for taking the space.
Its not original anymore, I know but... I'm gone. The groundswell of people leaving recently has become too much to not notice. This place is harboring some bad things and it sucks. I'm not going into some long drawn out speech here but I'm going to say that I never intended to leave like this. I always wanted something else to drive me away... not the users on this site.
I have loved working with the majority of you but some are vultures just waiting to pick the flesh from bone. Just look at what happened tonight as an example. I won't go into it fully but, you have three members walking around here who can lay claim to three knives being in my back right now. It's cool. Karma is a bitch... you know?
I want to say that its been a pleasure working with guys like Ka$h first and foremost, ehc, eddie, HJ, JMan, SEZ, TDA, and anyone else I may have forgotten. But the ones I just named off are the ones who I could count on, who I could go to and vice versa. I had a blast doing this crazy shit but now through bitterness, pain and ultimately sadness... goodbye.
Many of you know my backstory. I am a Marine who has served several tours of duty in both Iraq and Afghanistan and I was wounded by a roadbomb in Iraq March 5, 2011. 6 surgeries later on my right knee(as if I'm counting or anything) including having total knee replacement, I'm finally able to get around again--albeit with a small yet noticable limp. What many of you don't know is that had I not been injured, by this time I would have been training to be be a professional wrestler. It had been my dream since I was a child and I had every intention on beginning my training as soon as I got out of the military after this final tour as my military contract was due to expire later in the year.
The reason I tell you all this is to bring you to my point. When I first came to eWN, in August of 2011, I was fresh out of having Total Knee replacement surgery. I had no idea what an "e-fed" was much less what the heck went on in one, I just came here to read the main news stories and to blog. I quickly met a friend in Mr. Robert Woodward, better known as Rated_R(ob)KO to all of you, through blogging and he introduced me to JBW. I instantly fell in love I guess you can say.
I realized when I got injured that my dream of actually competing in a professional wrestling match was over. Knee replacement surgery limits you so drastically in movement that, as much as I would have wanted to, it was just physically impossible. That being said through JBW I was able to create a character and in a child like sense I was able to live at least a part of my dream of being a professional wrestler. It was fun, almost too much fun.
That fun however has become less and less in recent months. In fact until just recently it had been non existent. I just wasn't enjoying myself anymore but I kept hanging on due to a feeling that I somehow owed it to everyone to keep going. I just can't do it anymore, so it is with a heavy heart I announce my retirement from e-fedding.
Now people who know me on here know that I won't leave anyone hanging so here's the deal.
EWNCW: Thanks to Tommy Thunder and the crew over and EWNCW for taking me in and allowing me to be a small part of your show. You guys allowed me to be what I had wanted to be all along, a character in the show amongst characters. I've been having a blast and for that I'm truly thankful. You guys are soooooooo efficient with your shows that it's just crazy but in a good way. I just cannot do it as I can't put all of my heart into it. I will finish my obligations to you by finishing this program with Romulus and Seraphim, as long as it takes to give it the end that Mr. Thunder so desires as I'm sure he's got a full plan laid out already.
JBW: My home and my original Fed. Thanks to Kash, R(ob), and the rest of the Jabe crew for taking in a newcomer in me and allowing me to grow. You guys allowed me to in a small part live out a childhood dream that I'd never would have been able to do without you. For that I'll always be grateful. When I became a part of creative, it kind of killed alot of the fun out of it for me though. If I can give a little bit of constructive criticism it would be to not allow JBW to be the "one man rules all" fed that it's becoming and HAVE FUN AGAIN. Isn't that what all this is about in the end? You're not superman Ka$hy, don't be afraid to let folks help you . I'll finish my obligations to you guys by helping finish SHOWDOWN! and helping out in any way I can to make Kingdom Come the jizz in your pants PPV that Jabe is so well known for. After KC though, that's it for the Poot-Hair.
Wow, this whole thing has turned entire too long...I apologize for that. I'll end all this by saying take care guys, and I love you all from the bottom of my very Pooty heart. Peace out.
Hello SHOWERHEADS and SPRINKLERS of all ages. This will be my last post ever on EWN. Dont worry this isnt crying wolf, this is real. Over the last year and a half I've had fun on here hopefully making people laugh and make you think outside the box. I hope to be remembered not by my many flame wars but as a cool guy that was different from the pack. You see, pro rasslin has always been an escape from reality for me and has brought much joy in my life. One day I found this site and felt for the first time I could talk to people about my passion for pro rasslin without them rolling their eyes at me and saying aren't you too old to be enjoying that stuff. I feel if most people on here really knew me in real life we would be friends and possibly drinking buddies. Ever since my first post on here I was honest with everyone. I told you about being bi-polar and having post traumatic stress disorder. Some people on here made fun of that fact with putting that on tags in threads. I understand, you dont know me or live my life and I certainly dont take that to heart. There's been many on here that tried to bring down the man that goes by the name IPEEINTHESHOWER, its cool. Being different and creative I understand why I'm often imitated (but) never duplicated. I hope you find some peace in your life and I'm sorry if I caused you grief. That will never be what I'm about. It take guts to be different in this world and I sure am different . I'd like to thank everyone on here for the laughs and especially letting me share my thoughts and idea's in my own way. I really want to thank everyone on here for bringing a little joy to my life when I really needed it. Thank you. So I'd like to end my last post of IPEEINTHESHOWER's with my favorite quote.
From the State capitol to the nations capitol to the pineapple to the big apple there will only be one IPEEINTHESHOWER.
Say goodnight to the bad guy, you'll never see another bad guy like this.
