Scott Keith is a Canadian writer and reviewer of wrestling events. He is most well-known (and often hated) for his snarky style of match reviews as well as his star rating system.

Scott's content can be found in the following places:

Examples of Scott Keith include:
  • Canada, Eh?: Born, raised, and resides in Canada.
  • Caustic Critic: Earlier works, yes. However, in most of his newer reviews (and his 2011-12 Scott Says blurbs on older reviews), he has mellowed out dramatically.
  • Dan Browned: If he's mentioned at a "real" wrestling news site (ie, the Observer and the Torch), it's to point out how full of shit he is.
  • Deadpan Snarker: And HOW!
  • Doomy Dooms of Doom: Pioneered the concept of adding "OF DOOM!" when listing moves that he finds particularly ridiculous. The most over-the-top example would be Hulk Hogan having the "STINKY, WART-INFESTED, GIANT-KILLING LEGDROP OF DOOM!"
  • Fan Nickname/My Name Is Not Durwood: Almost always negative.
  • Five Moves of Doom: The Trope Namer in reference to Bret Hart.
  • Hero Worshipper: Of Chris Benoit until his tragic end.
  • Jerkass Has a Point: Pretty much any time he makes a good point, since they're usually applied with a sledgehammer.
  • No Indoor Voice: A written, snarky example. Whenever something stupid is supposed to be exciting, Keith will describe it in all-caps.
  • Overly Long Gag: Once stopped in mid-review of a boring match to tell the (made-up) history of the fast-forward button. This ended up being over a page's worth of text.
    • Another example would be his fictional recap of the century-long history of the WWF Hardcore Title which traced the belt-which was actually created in 1998-back to the glory of days of Frank Gotch and George Hackenschmidt.
  • Small Name, Big Ego: Try asking him for his autograph and watch him treat the occasion with the solemnity usually reserved for events such as Abraham Lincoln penning the Emancipation Proclamation.
    • He's even acknowledged this trait, going so far as to refer to Rob Van Dam as "the only person more self-centered than me."
  • Smart Mark: He even goes by the nickname "The SmarK."
  • Take That: While he's not shy about hurtling insults at wrestlers, Hulk Hogan seems to be his favorite target.
    • Vince Russo is another favourite of his; he'll at least acknowledge Hogan's good matches, but I can't think of a time he's ever said anything complementary about Russo, going so far as to compare Russo to a Special Olympian.
      • I can think of two compliments, both from Tonight...In This Very Ring. He first complimented Russo's policy of giving all wrestlers established characters, not just the upper-carders. He also praised Russo for creating the "backstage segment," thus giving the illusion that fans were seeing the wrestlers as real people. But otherwise, yeah, Russo has been the butt of many jokes.
  • Tonight in This Very Ring: The title of one of his books.
