Jay-Reso.com – A Decade Of Charisma!

So….this is kinda crazy!

Never thought I’d be saying this, but today, Jay-Reso.com celebrates 10 years online! 10 years?! I can’t even believe that! I tell this story every year and this is probably going to be the last time that I tell it, but this site was only made because a friend of mine wanted some Christian media and when I started looking around there was no up-to-date source for the Instant Classic! So after making a few things for him myself, I started thinking about making a website…even though I had no idea what I was doing! I gave it a shot and as I’ve told pretty much every one that knows me, I only gave the website two weeks before I would probably just give up on it……how wrong was I?!

Turns out, what had started off as just a little project has become the longest running and official resource for Jay ‘Christian’ Reso and his career. I couldn’t be happier and more proud with what the same have become over the years, even though due to technical difficulties, unfortunately I haven’t been able to do as many updates as I have wanted over the past few months. Hopefully, that will change soon because I do have quite a catalogue still to cover! (Watch this space!!)

I have been though a ton with this website, a lot of ups and downs…and drama at the very beginning, but fortunately we’ve been able to pull though and thankfully are still around today! None of this would have been possible without the support of everyone out there, your kind words, comments and donations from you all over the past few years, so a huge thank you goes out to everyone who has been with us on journey, we wouldn’t be here if it wasn’t for your ongoing support! As usual, I want to thank my friends Carmisha, David and Natalie the site wouldn’t exist today if you guys didn’t rally behind me to create this site and keep going! Another thank you goes out to Elaine for helping us with hosting! You guys are all awesome! Last but by no means least, I want to thank the man himself Jay ‘Christian’ Reso. I have said this so many times in the past and I mean it even more today, thank you for the support that you’ve shown me, it’s been much appreciated & you’ve been nothing but amazing, I’m still so very proud to be a fan of yours and I wish you nothing but continued success with everything in the future!

Once again, thank you all for the support over the past ten years. Please be sure to know that I appreciate every bit of support that you guys have shown over the years and it will never go unnoticed.

Jay-Reso.com – Nine Years Online!

Today marks the 9th year anniversary of Jay-Reso.com and I just have to start by saying thank you!

It’s been nine years since I had the crazy idea of starting a little website, which I never thought would really take off. I’ve mentioned this pretty much every year, but to those of you who don’t know… this site was only supposed to last two weeks! Haha! We’ve been through a lot over the years and I’m glad to say that we’re still here and still going strong!!

I never thought that this site would grow the way that it has over the past nine years. It’s funny to think that on our first anniversary I made a joke about the site becoming official and eight years later, I’m thrilled and honoured to say that’s exactly what we are and I have to send a HUGE thank you to Natalie (and of course, the man himself) for that! This past year has been a pretty good one, with Edge and Christian starting their own podcast (which has been a huge and of course hilarious success) all hail the Rocket Strappers and of course, big shout out to all the five-second hosers out there! and personally, I’ve had the opportunity to meet Christian not once, but twice a few months back (and as you can see above, we were able to get our current layout signed by him too!).

None of this would be possible without the continual support and kind words from all of you guys out there, so again, thank you! Without all of you, there is no way that the site would be where it is today. Also, have to thank a few people individually… as always, Carmisha and David… the site would not be here if you guys didn’t persuade me to go through with the craziness, but I have never looked back and I really do appreciate it guys. Again, a huge thank you to Natalie as well, I owe ya, I really do and thanks again for the kind words and support, it means more than you know! I would also like to take another moment to thank the man himself, Jay ‘Christian’ Reso. I can’t say enough kind words about the guy and I really do mean that. I don’t think there are any words to describe how proud I am to be a fan of yours & soon enough I know that we’ll be calling you a Hall Of Famer! I know that I’ve said this to you personally already, but thanks for everything and thank you once again for all of the support; it means a lot more than you realise.

So…once again a huge thank you to each and every one of you. I hope that you all know that I appreciate every bit of support and it doesn’t go unnoticed.

Here’s to yet another year!!

New Layout and Site News

As you can see, we’ve got a brand new layout here at Jay-Reso.com and our gallery The Peep Show and you may have noticed something else… I’m extremely happy to announce that we are now the official fansite of Jay ‘Christian’ Reso!

Thanks to Natalie, Carmisha and the man himself, Christian for making this happen! We’ve also got an approval video, which you can see on the sidebar.

Jay-Reso.com / Instant Classic – Eight Years Online!!

It’s hard to believe that this website was officially opened eight years ago, on this very day… although things have obviously slowed down a lot over the past few years, the website is still going strong, eight years later! It’s even a shock to me! Haha. I know that it’s said that everything just starts off as an idea and that’s just what this website was… an idea, even though I had no idea what I was doing, I had no resources and I doubted this place would even be around two weeks, let alone eight years! But hey, if you’ve been aware of the site for years, you should already know the story…I’ve told it every single year for the past eight years! So I’ll just move on and say thank you….

I wanted to take the time to say thank you to everyone. Thank you to the visitors, even though things have been going slow ever since Christian’s unfortunate forced retirement, but you have still been visiting the website and keeping it alive for the past few years and I will try to repay that back  – but I’ll explain more about that later! Thank you also goes out to my buds Carmisha and David, you guys already know why! Of course, another thank you goes out to Christian, none of this would have been possible, in the first place, if it wasn’t for you!!

Okay, so now to explain a few things….there were supposed to be new layouts up, specially made for the anniversary, but plans unfortunately fell through. The main reason was because of stuff that is going on behind the scenes. As many of you know, I have been meaning to revamp this whole website (including both galleries) for the longest time, but I’ve only been able to really focus on doing so for past few months…and you can see how large our galleries are! It’s been an unfortunate slow process but it has been picking up recently, so hopefully it will all be completed soon! With this, I’ve tried to limit newer uploads to the archived gallery – which needs the most work – which funnily enough, is what I want to upload the most to. Once the revamp is completed, I’m planning on adding a new section to the main site as well as add captures from a huge catalogue of Christian’s wrestling career, that I’ve been fortunate to get a hold of – like I said before, I will be repaying those who keep the site alive and I will try my hardest no to disappoint!

Thank you again everyone, thanks  for the patience, thanks for taking your time to visit and thank you for the past eight years!! It means a lot!

We’re Back Online!!

Hey peeps and welcome back to Instant Classic!

Sorry about all of the recent downtime, but as you know we unfortunately lost our old host recently, I would like to give a huge thank you to Flaunt for now hosting the site as well as the gallery. As you can tell, there are a few changes here… well, one mainly… the site is now under a new main domain – Jay-Reso.com, as well as the gallery – Reso-Images.com – though the site will still keep a little of it’s history and we shall be keeping the Instant Classic name.. can’t change too much now, can we!

I’m still working on few things, but for the main part, everything is in working order. If you notice any broken links or any other errors, please let me know and I will get everything sorted out as soon as possible.

Huge thanks to everyone for your patience!

Instant-Classic.org – Celebrating 6 Years Online!

Today, I’m proud to say that Instant-Classic.org / Jay-Reso.com has been online for six years. And I told myself that it would only last two weeks! Ha! (Yes, I know that I say that each and every year)

I can’t believe that it’s already been six years, it still feel as if it were only yesterday when I was even considering making a website. To think it all started because a few friends and I were complaining that there were no active fansites for Captain Charisma and over the years the site has grown so much and become one of longest running and leading resource for everything Christian and his amazing career. I honestly can’t believe how far the site has come over the years and I can truly say that I am so proud with how this site has grown. I’ve been lucky enough to meet great people, most of whom I can still happily call friends and none of it would have been possible if I hadn’t started IC. The site, as well as myself personally, has been through so many ups and downs during the years, but just like Christian, himself, we just keep bouncing back, better than ever.

I just wanted to say thank you, to each and every one of you out there who have ever visited the site, anyone who has donated anything, commented or even taken the time to send messages to me over IC’s social networks. I always, ALWAYS have to say a special thank you to Carmisha and David, you guys are the reason why Instant-Classic.org is here in the first place. None of this would be possible without your constant support, I wouldn’t still be here if it wasn’t for you guys and that goes for everyone!

One more special thank you goes out to the man himself, Christian. You truly are an amazing and talented individual, with an already legendary career that just continues to grow. You’ve been and continue to be an inspiration to so many people out there, including myself and I’m so, so proud to call myself a fan of yours, even though honestly, that’s probably an understatement. Thank you for everything. For what you’ve done to entertain people all over the world and also for the support that you have shown me, you have no idea how much it really means to me and I, as well as the peeps all around the world can’t wait to see you get back in the ring once again!

Once more, thank you to each and every one of you out there, just know that I appreciate every bit of support that all of you have ever shown me over the years. Here’s to yet another year and hopefully many more to come!!
