I'm Ðαη Riaz, the guy you always see in the comment section. WELCOME TO MY PAGE!
About me: I like to think of myself as a leader not a follower, one who inspires others to be themselves. Its down to what you believe this site is about, you get characters here. But what are you? What would you call yourself? My message to you is to be yourself, be unique, make this site a better place. I believe the best people on this site give their own opinions and think for themselves. Contrary to what some believe, I'm not a troll, I'm not a hater, I'm not a God. I'm just an awesome person... jks :P Oh and also, I'm really defensive when it comes to my fans. DONT MESS WITH MY FANS.

Just a Story:
It started off as an idea, that BR could be something more than what it was. I remember looking up some of the older and more popular writers who had left the site. There seemed to be so much more to this place before I "officially" joined in the late winter of 2011. Some kind of close knit community that was always buzzing with new ideas and articles. I wondered what it would take to bring it all back.
It was a small goal initially. I never thought it would actually work. Back then the profile pages were near deserted. All the old and fun writers and readers had gone, except for a handful (and they didn't even talk to each other). Conversation was always limited to sport's topics, profile's were all the same (the same old information), there was this emptiness about this place. I just wondered, what if we changed it? I made an effort to do something, a half hearted one... but failed. So I gave up and just went back to reading articles and commenting like everyone else, fading into the grey.
Later on however, somewhere in 2012 I caught the attention of the most respected users on the site (who would later become good friends of mine). These were the remaining users I had mentioned earlier, who had remained here after their friends had left. I decided to give my idea another go. I wrote a small bio which was different to everyone else's, I pointed out things on the site that I had noticed... and that everyone could relate to (this grew over time), gradually I began meeting more and more people who took notice of me. These people were enthusiastic about my observations, and were keen on suggesting some of their own. Soon people started writing their own bio's, ones that were unique and different. I guess people realized they could express themselves, and then use it as a stepping stone to meet more people. Readers who would have shared interests, which would in turn open up more discussion. But then there was a boom.
It didn't happen right away, it was more like an accelerated process... or kind of like a snowball that was tumbling down a mountain. There were so many messages that were continuously flooding my board and inbox. I found myself talking to so many people at once, people who had noticed me in the comment sections on articles, people who just so happen to find my bio when browsing around. Some messaged more often than others, some I preferred talking to more than others. It felt like I was making new connections all the time. We were all personalities without faces, it didn't matter where we from, it didn't matter if we never saw each others faces (or never knew what most people looked like). This place was coming back to life, and it felt like it had happened overnight .Everyone was suddenly unique, everyone posted more about themselves, there were bio's created that were far more creative than my own.
I suppose the best part was... It felt like you couldn't leave it alone for a second, I remember every time I'd take a break for a few days/weeks , I would come back to around 60 messages from all these different people. All the friends I had made. Suddenly this page wasn't a profile anymore, it became the centre of something. Something that was bigger than me. Because they weren't just talking to me, they were talking to each other.
We had created something, a phenomenon we had called "The Circle". A rapidly expanding web of friendships, with new users popping up everywhere. Usually they would find my page and send me message, and then suddenly find my closest friends messaging them on their own page. Like I said there were some I spoke to more than others, some would message every hour, some every other week. It was all good fun :) There were competitions, award ceremonies, fictional shows, there was always something new.
There was always something going on, a running joke, or maybe the mini wars between users, the moments of drama and.... romance LOL. This was a time which I consider the peak of my time here at BR, and I think many would agree and would be more than happy to talk about it. Even the old legendary writers that were here before me, the ones I had just missed; had returned and were more than enthusiastic about the atmosphere.
So by now you're probably wondering what happened, where did it all end? Well... nothing lasts forever I suppose. At first it felt like it would never end, that we could keep it going forever. But we all began to realize that things were ending just as rapidly as they began. Some of the users we were closer to, the ones in the "Inner Circle" were beginning to leave for good, one by one. Things began to decline as soon as people started to realize that the website itself was not as perfect as we thought. There's an inconsistency in the way that users are punished, and there is no appeal process. Just 3 warnings and then a perma ban. One of our close friends fell victim to the inconsistencies of the system, and left forever. This started a chain of events which would cause members of the inner circle to gradually leave.
It got harder to say goodbye every time, and meeting new people would never feel the same. We always were looking to replace the people we lost, and it's unfair to try force that on others. We were trying to keep it all together, but it just fell apart. There were fewer and fewer messages coming in by the day, the quality in writing dipped in dramatic fashion, every day there was just a new reason to leave for good. Don't get me wrong though, some people were moving on to better things. College/University was the common one, but there were others too. Moving to a different country, getting married on Christmas day, new business ventures. Everyone was ready to write a new chapter in their lives, including myself.
In the rare times that I drop in, I find myself looking back to what things used to be like. All the memories that flood into my mind. I see small remnants of what used to be, there are some that are still here. But the vast majority are long gone. I still talk to a handful of these people now and again. Others I've not heard from. I like to think that they're all happy, that all those faceless personalities found what they were looking for in life. I know I have :) ▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬▬
✉The recent stuffs✉
- 12/04/2015: Derby day, had to login after an awesome result. Replying to messages :)
I'm doing okay... B/R just irritates me. Just 2 many changes.
Cuz...I DO WHAT I WANT!
Glad that's settled, waited a long time for that, but why "Get Rekt" Lol
Yeah well so is Cesaro so let's not bring age up again, it worries me, and you're right it's a little too late for Ziggler, he's almost like John Cena, he's gotten a bit stale, at least Cena changes it up from time to time and flirts with the Heel line from time to time, Ziggler just flops around the ring(Not a bad thing) and stays face, and yeah to be honest Cesaro's latest promos are better than Ziggler's, like Ziggler's stale, and I hate to admit that, but I was being blind, he's been a face for to long. And yeah you're right it is a good thing that WWE is focusing on smaller guys although Rollins isn't the most favorable Champion I expected him to be, Vince is just so caught up in making any heel that's not huge Whiny and Weak, and I hate that, can't we just get a skinny and ruthless heel, not some wimp that needs help. And it looks like there getting Owens too, he's walking out of matches, and had to eye rack Ryback, when in his feud with Cena he was going for pin falls and Finishers, so why he couldn't do that to a lesser wrestler like Ryback confuses me.
I agree BNB isn't like any of the wrestlers you named, he definitely adds his own style to the table, like a Brawler/Grappler Hybrid and it works for BNB I enjoy every single one of his matches even though he Jobs for no damn reason, and yes his Mic Work is stellar, I Can't remember a bad promo from this guy, he always delivers on the Mic, and again you're right, it's more about entertaining and connecting like Vince said, and he does, he connects, and I don't think the standard is that high, people just need freedom on the Mic, they need to speak from the heart like Cena and Wyatt, that's what makes those 2 so good even SC said it, like it holds so many people back when they read from a script, there not gonna connect with Creative's crappy material, it's so much easier to sound believable when you're speaking from the heart no?
Sorry don't really follow the Indy scene so I don't know who Chris Hero is so I won't diverge into that further. And yeah I know Daniel became the people's champion, the underdog, but I just don't find him all that interesting. And I couldn't agree more, Brock ain't the Brock the WWE Universe has known to love without Paul but still I think Cesaro should be able to handle this on his own, him being paired with a manger usually means a Heel run, and I would die before I see him need outside help to beat someone, like I almost lost it when he had to Roll-up Bo Dallas...BO DALLAS, like did you see what Mic Foley said, WWE is doing this crap on purpose trying to dwindle his momentum with the crap their doing with him, it's like what I argued with you before, It's not about him not having it, It's about them not giving him time to get it and grow it, how is the WWE Universe supposed to like him when he's losing to Big Show(I'd love to discuss with you how dumb I think his finisher is later) I mean I'll never betray Cesaro, but from the eyes of the Casual viewer he looks like crap on TV.
Oh Boy, you couldn't be more right, BNB's last 5 reigns were of the purist of Dog sh!t, he just jobbed to everybody so I get what you're saying there, but who knows with the pull that Cena has backstage, he could make sure Cesaro is given good material, that is when he's done being food for Big Show. And Yeah that's the thing with Mid-Card Champions, for the most part they are not booked good at all, Ziggler and Bryan were the best Intercontinental Champions of the past 2 or 3 years, and that surprises me, Ryback didn't do to well, and it's not that it's his fault, Creative just sucks, so again I get what you're saying, but for Cesaro I'm willing to stay positive.
I hear ya, for the most part I was, but after his IC Reign I was like "....Yyyyyyeah, you're done man" It's just too late for Ziggler, but let's hope it's not to late for Cesaro.
I see. You should watch NXT but I guess you've been told that millions of time by others haha. I'm surprised you don't watch NXT.
You MUST watch Bailey vs Sasha match if you already haven't.
"Why not both? Lol"
Don't let your girlfriend see that lol.
Do you watch NXT?
"Just finished watching this series called Forever with my girlfriend, it was really good!"
What was that really good thing, girlfriend or the series? Lol.
I hear ya, I've done that to a couple of people in my early debating days, and it was a pretty crappy impression to leave on you so again I apologize.
I agree 100% after a while his move set to me got old, like he didn't change it up or make it exciting, heck even John Cena over the past few months has been changing it up and adding moves, sure he's botched a lot, but dammit he's trying, and yeah he's getting kinda stale, and yeah I was lying to myself he's average on the Mic at best, I feel like he's not one of those stars that already has a solid Move-set, like Barrett, Owens, Cesaro or Seth, like he needs to change it up, but it's already to late, and again I agree there are more Superstars that offer more, Owens comes to mind, heck even Roman Reigns.
Wait Barrett was the first choice over Ziggler in 2012? I never would have guessed, well we can't say it was a bad call, he did have one of the greatest pops in the WWE, like it's up there, the only problem was Jack Swagger getting to anxious, I felt Ziggler was right at home with the WHC but now that I think of it Barrett wouldn't have been a bad option seeing how he was Jericho's rookie and Jericho was the WHC, so it would have been nice. But is it messed up to say I'm more of a fan than Barrett than I ever was now that he has a better build and he's taking care of himself, like I've always loved BNB, he's never left my Top 5 because of the Quality matches he can put on and stellar Mic Work, so I was already sold, but now, He's def got the body of a Wrestler and I'm even more sold.
Side note, I'm a huge fan of exercising so when I see people with a shredded core, it helps me work harder for it at the Gym, so there's that.
Owens doesn't look like he's anywhere near an Injury so lets hope it stays that way, and as for Cesaro I agree, I feel that WWE flirts with the line of his push, and I feel like it's only being flirted with because out of everyone backstage Vince is the only one that isn't sold on Cesaro yet, and for some small margin of understandability, marketing, that it. Now I'm gonna be honest I disagree, if they put Cesaro on the Cover of 2k14 or one of the Covers fans were supposed to get in 2k15 people would have been siked, but that's me fanning out, but still it seemed like after WM30 he was onto bigger and better, and than they halted it for Roman Reigns smh. And I think there's enough room on a WM Poster of course not in the Middle but on the Side maybe. And yeah he is looking like the next Daniel Bryan only Cesaro doesn't have a weak neck, he is in need of a character though, I agree, cuz right now, what he has going on is pretty good, but Cena's already got the "Hard Work Pays Off" character covered so Cesaro will have to dive into something new that will allow him to demonstrate his versatility and Charisma, the only thing holding him back. Now that's not to say he hasn't improved, he's doing good, minor stutters aside, but he's getting comfortable and that's always a good start so let's hope he goes up from there.
Yeah the Big Show thing is getting old, like beating him is like becoming a SSJ in DBZ, it's not much of a milestone, besides, he already went over Big Show at WM30 when he had a eliminated Big Show in the ATGMBR to a huge pop, the only route now would be to have them face over the who really deserves to have that Trophy since Big Show won it for some odd reason, and Cesaro's was destroyed, so that's the only reason I could see them feuding meaning something, if they involve the lovely ATGMBR, other than that, this feud is Creatives laziness, Cesaro and Owens feud should have continued, Owens could have elevated Cesaro's Mic Work ten fold.
I wouldn't really change his Attire, he's another one of those stars that don't need to change his attire because it's perfect the way he is, well in my eyes, but you can't look at Cesaro's Entrance at NoC 2014 and tell me he didn't look like a BAD@$$, what it boils down to his a Catchphrase or a gimmick that allows him to show he can hold a Microphone, Cesaro Section is a pretty decent Catchphrase for him and can catapult him he just needs more Mic time to drill it in like Daniel Bryan's Yes Chant, he needs to move merchandise(I've already bought 2 Cesaro and 2 Owens T-Shirts with my Check from Wall-Mart) and he'll be good. Daniel Bryan didn't really have a gimmick or a Character change just a Catchphrase, it's effective once it catches on, and easy to keep chanting, when you and your fans believe it.
As for fading into the Background, that's why I suggested he win the US Championship, you can't fall off the radar when Creative has to mandatory make material for you as a Champion, so I think giving Cesaro a Belt puts him in the Safe Zone so to speak so he can't fade, and a Win over Cena is the best way to do it, down the line of course, but a Clean Win would show WWE's faith in Cesaro if they let him beat Cena for the US Championship, and if Cena is rally behind Cesaro, than he'll try to make it happen, other than that Cena's words are but Wind and Air.
Group Chat? What group chat, and hey you've earned bragging rights man, I've given up on Ziggler, like I still like him, but like I said, He's not on my Top 5, and he's just a bad bet a tease at this point.
Lol yeah I know what you mean, I was feeling myself a little bit too much, like I came in there thinking I had it in the bag so you're right, I'm usually far more composed, and don't really come off that way, and passive aggressive jab? do remind me, that convo is to far down and cringe worthy, and I just started to notice things, like his move set isn't all that exciting when you put him next to other stars, I mean he his Fameasser, DDT, Superkick and Stinger Splash to Neck breaker just isn't doing it for me anymore, especially with people like Kevin Owens and Cesaro.
AND THAT'S CRAZY YOU Like Wade Barrett too? No way, I love that dude, he's my Number 3, (Cesaro,Kevin Owens,BNB,Rollins,Cena) Ziggler was booted out of my Top 5 because after a while you stop rooting for him and stop falling for the bait teases of his "Success" like I'm done, I can't defend him, you're right, if he was gonna be Champion he would have been already.
Now I'm more concerned about Kevin Owens and Cesaro, like Owens is in a Safe Zone so to speak, he can't fall off the Radar, but Cesaro, he's looking like going to feud with Big Show, BIG SHOW, I'd rather him win back the US Championship so at least Creative has to think of material for him, and he doesn't drift away, what are you're thoughts man, and who else has got off the Ziggler train?
