The Segunda Caida blog was something I read frequently before I joined, I wanted a decent name and being a lazy uncreative shit that popped into my head. I'm also a pretty big Lucha fan and 'segunda caida' is Mexican for 2nd fall so yeah, I'm not one of the contributors to the blog or anything.
Segunda's not Phil Schneider? Eh. Always thought he was.
I had the same initial thoughts until Phil himself shot it down.
Segunda mirrors his view points to a staggering degree. If he is completely sincere his username helps very little. I don't want to call him a biter but he should seriously establish himself independently as I really dont think the simarilites are completely organic.
Random post: Based on what I've read on DVDVR and the people that post there, most of them are VERY similar in how they explain their opinions, how they post, and what they like. Hell, I remember doing an IP check on Segunda when he first showed up because I thought he was a re-joiner with the way he posted (obviously not on this forum as I wasn't a mod at them time).
Location: Golfing with Stephen Hawking, he lied about his handicap. Didn't need a golf cart though, I just sat in his lap.
Re: The 2012 MOTYC thread
I can see what Rizzo is saying, I mean I've never tried to pose as Phil Schneider or anything like that, but I can accept that I do share largely similar opinions to a fair few workers as he does, hell I can freely admit that quite a few guys on the blog as well as some people in the DVD thread (Cal, Andy3000, Yeah1993) etc are responsible for actually making me rewatch old matches after I took a break from wrestling because I saw guys like HBK and Angle etc being called out for having more flaws then I ever remembered them having (fuck Angle was a favourite of mine during 2004-2006) and actually being responsible for me slowly beginning to see their argument.
I definitely see where he's coming from though, I've seen a lot of matches talked about on DVDVR and occasionally WKO and when I've taken the time to watch most of those matches its very rare I've disagreed with the general consensus about whether the match was good/bad etc. I'd like to think I've offered my own opinion on enough matches to be recongised by some as not a clone of the DVDVR crew and someone who can think for themselves, though I can definitely understand where Rizzo is coming from in regard to similarities.
Also Cal I remember you asking me whether I was a re-joiner when I first began posting in the DVD thread .
