Dr DisRespect says Michael “shroud” Grzesiek is so popular on Twitch for good reason, explaining why he can attract over 30,000 viewers every stream.

The Doc himself is also one of the biggest names on Twitch, so he is well positioned to explain what is behind bringing in such a large audience.

Formerly a professional Counter-Strike player, shroud moved to full time streaming in 2017, and since then has rocketed to the top of the rankings for followers and subscribers.

As other streamers, such as Lirik, have pointed out, it is shroud’s background as a professional player that gives him the edge as a broadcaster, as people know they are getting some serious skill on show.

And the Doc agrees, going as far as to say that shroud is in fact the best PC gamer that he’s ever seen, on top of being an entertainer.

“Shroud gets 30,000 – 50,000 people, the reason he has 50,000 subscribed to him, is because he’s the best PC gamer, that I’ve ever seen.

He’s literally the best at everything he does play, because he was born on a mouse and keyboard. He showcases something very special, that no one else has.”

The Doc goes on to say that in addition to his skill, shroud is also just a nice guy, and humble, which makes him easy to watch:

“He’s easy to watch. It’s a comfortable, kick your feet up, let me watch the best PC gamer absolutely destroy.”

It’s a rare moment of the Doc being complimentary, considering he typically claims he is the best gamer to ever do it – and because his character is about disrespect, not respect.

Shroud has clearly gained the ‘respect’ of Dr DisRespect.


TikToker Nessa Barrett slams TalentX’s Michael Gruen: “He hates me”

Nessa Barrett has slammed TalentX manager Micheal Gruen in the third installment of Josh Richards and Dave Portnoy’s new podcast BFFs in which they talk about all things TikTok drama.

The first episode of the podcast sent fans into a frenzy after the Barstool Sports’ president claimed that Nessa Barrett had found her fame through dating Josh Richards. The host claimed he was “in the middle of a TikTok war” and fuelled drama by tweeting memes and jokes about the situation.

But for their third episode, they actually invited Nessa herself onto the show, and while there appeared to be no beef between Dave and the popular TikToker, it was revealed that the manager of TalentX Michael Gruen and Nessa are feuding.

Fans of Nessa will know that the pair don’t necessarily like each other. After the drama surrounding the first episode, Michael weighed in with his own opinion on an Instagram fan page for the star.

He wrote, “I must’ve missed the memo that Nessa – or anyone for that matter – deserves ‘the world’. The earth is inhabited by ~7B people…last I checked Nessa is just one of them (along with myself and everyone else).” Nessa did not publicly reply but she did unfollow him on Instagram.

It turns out that their beef runs a little deeper. After remaining quite held back with her answers for the first half of the podcast, Nessa suddenly had words to say once Micheal was mentioned by Dave.

(Topic starts at 27:00)

She said, “I do not like him. He’s rude. He hates me. He has it out for me. I think he’s jealous because he’s secretly in love with Josh which is no problem but yeah he has called me ugly to my face and in front of people”

Josh attempted to defend Michael, and said that the word “Ugly” wasn’t used, but instead that “he said my taste in women was not good.”

Nessa continued, “He has said like the beginning of quarantine that he wants to send me on a one-way ticket to Mexico and I’ve been sat there alone and I was 17 like he is just rude…I just don’t waste my energy on him I just don’t like him he’s a terrible person” She also added and emphasized that “he is a certified a**hole.”

Michael is yet to react to Nessa’s brutal takedown, but given his reputation, he is likely to respond very soon.
