#1: Wrestling shows are surprisingly easy to put together when you take a step back and look through the eyes of a child. Realise what does and doesn’t work to someone utterly unfamiliar with the product. It’s also a hell of a lot more fun that way.
#2: RAW is much more exciting when John Cena isn’t there. This isnt a slight on Cena at all - Cena just had an awesome match with Cesaro, and did one of his best promos in years - but last week’s RAW was full of action, and constantly felt like anything could happen. They needed to keep it busy to distract you from the fact that Cena wasn’t there. They didn’t want you thinking something was missing. On my own shows, this is how I’ve always said we have to deal with absent talent, or guys leaving the promotion; just put on as good a show as you can do, so that everyone leaves without even thinking they missed out. If someone has to say “it would have been better if Wrestler X had been there”, you’ve not done a good enough job. It’s frustrating in WWE’s case, though, because it shows they’re more than capable of putting on a brilliant show, and it just makes it worse when RAW feels like a chore to get through some weeks.
#3: Dirtsheets and internet gossip is full of shit. This isn’t surprising, but if one person tells me that Cesaro is being buried or “held down” after putting on an awesome match where he held his own against John Cena, I’ll lose my mind. And this comes off the back of “insider” reports saying that Cesaro has been told to stop doing the big swing because they don’t want him “getting over”. What was that move he did on Cena again?
#4: I want TNA to close, as soon as possible. I’ve not bought into the “wrestling is better with competition” argument for years, nor have I bought into the idea that TNA even *is* competition to WWE. WWE’s competition is every other TV show on Monday nights. WWE’s competition is any other product vying for your disposable income and your leisure time. TNA have consistently proven themselves incapable of adapting, of making the most of a good thing, or of treating their employees with any respect or dignity, and have produced one of the most awful and unwatchable wrestling shows I’ve ever had the displeasure of sitting through. As much as it would suck to put so many people out of work, TNA’s time has passed, and I hope they don’t get a new TV deal. Let TNA’s loss be the independent scene’s gain.

Ask me stuff and things. Maybe wrestling questions, maybe not.
I was never a huge Sting fan, but with WWE hype and production behind him, and all these little teases, I’m more excited for him finally showing up on WWE TV than I’ve been about anything in wrestling for years.
When he showed up at Comic Con, and him and Paul Heyman shared a little “I know you!” gesture…oh, wow. I’ve seen people throw around Sting vs. Brock Lesnar as a possibility a few times lately, and I never thought it would happen, never wanted it to happen, and never had any interest in it.
But now…throw Heyman into the mix, and I’m imagining promos. I’m picturing Paul Heyman calling back to the Dangerous Alliance, talking about the talent he had available to him - Rick Rude, Bobby Eaton, Arn Anderson, STEVE AUSTIN - and how none of them were able to put away Sting, and how that’s his biggest regret in his entire career…but now, after quarter of a century, he can put that to rest, because he’s finally found the one man who can do it…
Fuck, I hate my wrestling imagination, because now I want this to happen so badly.
