What you are witnessing is the website of a wrestling fan and hobby blog/column writer. That sums it up, fairly well.
The front page of this website contains blogs about every kind of topic, but mainly pop culture and pro wrestling. Grammar Nazis and comment trolls, please be aware that I do not claim to be an expert on any subject and unless duly noted, these are all my opinions. I don’t spend a hell of a lot of time proofreading, because I’m not going for a Pulitzer prize. So there will be some mistakes and typos here and there. This is just an outlet for me, a hobby. Before you spout off about how I spelled something wrong, or disagree with my opinions, keep in mind this is a BLOG.
The forums of this website contains a vast array of topics, dealing with every type of subject imaginable, split into numerous categories– as most forums are.
Just about everything you’ll find on this website is related to wrestling or pop-culture. The website was created around the massive multiplayer online wrestling roleplaying community game called “ewrestling”. The majority of internal and external links you’ll find here are ewrestling related. The majority of visitors to this website are wrestling fans or ewrestling players, looking for tools and resources to aid their game. The rest of the community are just friends or long time visitors and community members.
The type of audience I cater to are wrestling fans. However, people of all kinds might find a useful tip or interesting read because I write to a general audience, not hardcore wrestling fans.
The recent goal of this website is to continue supporting ewrestling resources, and add fun content about pop culture and pro-wrestling. The mission is to provide another fun and friendly website to visit. The theme of this website is not catered to any specific demographic, but it’s not recommended for very young children or immature old children either. While we take measures to protect the youth, it’s the parent’s responsibility to monitor what their children are looking at on the internet.

About Kut & Pasted News (Brag section)
You might not be able to tell, but this was once a very popular column. Back when I was writing actively for the wrestling opinion site: Lethal Wrestling I manged to develop quite a reader base. (I never called my readers fans unless in jest).
I frequently had banners created for me. In the wrestling opinion scene, this was the ultimate form of respect for a writer. The banners were put a top the posts. I also got quite a bit of positive AND negative email, both of which I enjoyed getting. Regular AIM praise, congrats on the forums now and then and so on. Everything was great!
K&P was not the only thing I wrote at Lethal, but it was by far the most popular. It was literally a blog before blogging was called blogging. I talked about my life, constantly went off topic from wrestling, and I made fun of pro-wrestlers. It was almost exactly the same thing you read here on my site.
However, it wasn’t 100% the same. I had a burning fire in me that kept me writing on sometimes, a daily basis. I was funnier then, at least I think I was. I was young and crazy and didn’t really give a damn what I said or whom it affected.
That version of me changed a bit. Lethal kind of grew apart from me, the me I became. They are still one of my fondest memories and I will forever consider myself a part of something big. Lethal was known for “shock” tactics that ended up getting the better of me when I tried to start a business and a customer found out who I was and the things I wrote. It bit me right in the ass.
There was also a friend of mine, Doug (aka Sick of it All) that was killed in the Twin Towers during 9/11 attacks. Yes, he really was my friend. He was the ONLY person from the net who I talked to on the phone at the time. He was the only person online who knew my real name. He sent me video games from his Trade Center company. He talked to me on a regular basis, including the morning of the attacks on AIM. Sick, as I called him, was also a writer for Lethal Wrestling. After he died, my attitude changed. I lost a little of my drive.
You see me and Sick did a lot of damage together. We got Jake The Snake to quit the net, he even named Sick on one of his closing articles. We got attention from The Honky Tonk Man among other fond memories. It would never be the same without him.
Me getting saved (Yeah, Jesus saved) didn’t help things either. There was also a growing number of members of Lethal that weren’t very respectful and really, I just grew out of it. I had a slew of personal problems going on during the time which didn’t help. There was just too much going on. I couldn’t write for Lethal at the same caliber, and after repeated comeback attempts, I just wasn’t the writer I used to be.
I never really “quit” Lethal, but I don’t have much of a desire to return. Somethings are better left alone.
But you can still read many of my archived posts there… in the archives, duh.
Now, you have K&P in 100% blog form. I do it as a hobby because I still enjoy writing. So I hope you enjoy it!
The old “about page” below….
RoughKut Dot Com is all about Innovation and Originality.
Back in early1999 when I “retired” from eWrestling actively- the love for the game lived on. I never heard of an “FWLnet” or an “FWO” I never heard of any kind of ‘eWrestling’ Websites at all. As I entered eWrestling through friends who entered from friends. None of us knew of these sites.
All I knew was that there were thousands upon thousand of “eFeds” all over the net and they had no where to go for assistance. So I created what would soon become what you know as RoughKut.com. It was then called the ULTIMATE GUIDE TO EWRESTLING. I had my belt page, then it only had like 10-15 belts, now it has over 60. I had the timeless roleplay guides and other pages.
As time went on, my Webmaster skills developed and I bought the domain name “RoughKut”. I was originally going to buy “RoughCUT” but some cheesy music DJs owned it. I think it was a rasta site. I couldn’t afford to pay monthly fees and stuff so I redirected the domain to an anglefire website. What does RoughKut mean? Who the hell knows. It just sounds cool.
RoughKut.com was opened in April of 2000 and received 1000 hits in it’s “rookie” month. We always thank you (the visitor) for your support I am finding a lot of sites by accident that have a link to RoughKut.com and we always appreciate that! As a “thank you” we keep everything as up to date as time allows and bring new things on a regular basis.
As the months and now years went by RoughKut.com became the very popular site you now know. I offered things that NO other ‘eWrestling sites’ offered. I still do. No other websites had eFed builders and Roleplay builders and Belt pages and eWrestler databases.
Even if there are no updates the information that can be found here is time-less! The tools here will never go out of date and everyone can benefit from being here in one way or another. This site is owned and Ran by Me: HK, RoughKut, Kdog, whichever you know me by or prefer to call me.
You can help RoughKut.com’s growth by simply passing this site along to new people to E-wrestling or anyone who is into E-feds!
