I don't know how many of you read or have read 411mania, or the old 411wrestling website. Larry Csonka, who reviewed nearly every wrestling-related product for the better part of 20 years, has passed away. He had suffered from health issues for a few years, but even so, his passing was sudden and unexpected.

As I have stopped watching WWE product over the past year, it was his reviews that kept me informed on what was taking place, and his reviews also got me into NJPW, which I likely would have never started watching otherwise. The man was smart, funny, and dedicated. He left behind a wife and daughter.

RIP to one of the good guys.

No way! Sad to hear. Loved his reviews. Only guy whose articles I would read.

A lot of the 411wrestling guys came from tpww.net, but Csonka came from an old AOL usergroup, I think. It's a real loss for the wrestling community.

His passing leaves a big whole for me.  Never going to be the same to not be able to look up his reviews and thoughts after events.

Was there someone named Scott Keith that posted there? What ever happened to that guy? I used to read his reviews. 


He did. Scott goes way back, and contributed to the memorial article.

Scott Keith was one of the first really big internet writers. He had several books. One of the first names i followed. CANADIAN VIOLENCE.  His write ups were awesome. He went and did his own site many year ago. Easy to find on google
