Thoughts Going Into Wrestlemania.

By

I know, I know.  This is ActiveRain, not ActivePain, and the likelihood of anyone coming across this piece of prose who is remotely interested in the art that was Pro-Wrestling is about as likely as me coming across a member of the Latter Day Saints who is familiar with Peter North.  They (LDS) are much more likely to recognize "Big Love" or its gentle reminder, the dark guy at the end of the hall.

Anyway, I've been a rassling fan ever since I was punted out of the womb.  While it seemed an anti-intellectual endeavor for a guy whose IQ at one time eclipsed 80, I still think 5% of the crap stands the test of the time.  However, this may be the last Wrestlemania I buy.  These days, it's the only PPV I invest in.  Coin the "invest" term very loosely, my friends.

Maybe the whole Benoit thing took it out of me.  Actually, I think it did.  And as I was watching Monday Night Raw this fine evening, it reminded me that maybe my still boy-ish love for that form of entertainment has died another day.

For example:

While I love seeing The Rock back in his original stomping grounds, it also reminds me that steroids are still prevalent.  Let me write it like this ... I have no doubt that some of these boys cycle before the Big Show.  Cycle is a term utilized when you aren't doing steroids regularly, but for special occassions.  Kind of like a circumcision at a Muslin Wedding.    What a way to get around things ... it's always pretty cool to watch folks who represent the best body that pharmaceuticals can buy.

Snooki hosting Raw?  Normally, I don't give a rat's beady ass who hosts the show.  When you've got sixteen minutes of wrestling on a two hour program, you take what you can get and ignore the rest.  But Snooki?  I've never watched this very popular Jersey Shore.  Yet, if I may, who in the hell did Nicole sell her soul too to become this famous ... this rich ... this acclamated with American Culture?  Christ, she looks like the Lollipop Guild got a harsh tan and bad boob job.

Drew Carrey is in their Hall of Fame?  What's next, the best of Jay Leno in the ring?  Oh Hell,  never mind ...

How about their closest competition?  An organization formed in the South and their PPV last night was a Main Event match pitting Sting vs. Jeff Hardy.  And it lasted 90 seconds or so because maybe the latter guy was in no state to perform.  I'm not sure what I hate worse ... my love for a fucked up industry or the fact that I watch re-runs of Two & A Half Men ... and think it is any more palatable.

I've always disliked more than I liked (as far as rasslin goes) and despite going against my Father's more logical recommendation of trying out as a writer, I chose to take a headbutt from a Wild Samoan to prove I was just tough enough to ensure that the guy who beat me up in the fifth grade would have to meet his maker at the 20th Reunion.

And a cigarrette dangles from the lips that aren't reasoned ...

Bring On Wrestlemania!

I never understood the fasination with what always appeared to be fake fighting.  But then more and more I think football, baseball, nascar... are fake or "fixed" too.  So lately I try to give that time to my family.  More and more we turn off the television in this house.

Jason... I watched wrestling when I was younger, and some up until high school.  One of our French teachers, who was a woman, worked out with two wrestlers at Golds Gym... and about 25 of us went... she got 10 seats at the ring, or around the ring.. and we sat higher up.. it was a tar and feather match...

Anyhoo...but Snooki?  I could understand a Nicole Sheridan... but Snooki?  I can't stand her, hate her looks, her voice... and just... blah... and no, I never watched Jersey Shore... they basically disgusted me and it was nothing like when we grew up down at the shore..

Well, hope all is well...

Ah, I remember those days, Jason. Yep, they're long gone, never to return. Something hapopens with that stuff once we grow up...

Tammy - Probably not a bad idea.  But "fake" comes in all forms.  That's why I quit going to church.  I like what you are doing, though.

Belonger - Hope all is well with you too, my man.  Jersey Shore doesn't make sense to me, yet I never watched an entire episode which lends credence to the "Screw off, Sardi ... there's a reason it's popular" phenomenon.   Speaking of which, let's talk:)

Jason, 

it's good to see you on line!

On tonight's subject I can only follow the President's lead from his vast experience in  Illinois and the Senate, I abstain.

You know I'm a closet fan.......I actually had a dream a few nights ago after watching a documentary about Hulk Hogan. A part of it talked about how he is one of the producers (or whatever they call them) of TNA. I haven't seen it......but my dream was that his illegitimate son shows up and takes the wrestling world by storm.

Now if we can just find a blonde 6'6" muscle bound dude with a skullet (or at least a good mullet) I think we could pitch this to TNA and we might have a winner.

I'm too far out of the loop.......is the Rock wrestling at Wrestlemania???? He's my favorite of all time! I just called someone a jabroni today! HA!

Jason, we all cling to a childhood pleasure we never get fully out of our system, hold on and ride it out.

The Rock is gonna lay the smackdown on your candy ass! The Rock is gonna go down Know-Your-Role Boulevard, hang that right at Jabroni Drive, and proceed to check your candy ass in at the Smackdown Hotel. Know you role and shut your mouth. If you smell... what the Rock is cookin'!

May- I think you have the spiel down.  Now just start working on the biceps.

Loynd - I have a staunch feeling that I'll be watching it from the Nursing Home one day.

Stewart - The Rock won't be wrestling.  He will be the Guest Host.  What that encompasses remains to be seen.  You may be onto something with your dream.  They sure could use an interesting angle over in that organization.  If the AR Gig doesn't work out, I smell a bit of promoter in you:)

Bill - I haven't been on much as of late at all.  Hopefully that will change.  And you just had to bring Obama into this, didn't you? :)

Jason, from what I read I take it you are a PURIST when it comes to rasslin. I am still figuring out which I myself am more clueless on NASCAR or rasslin. You are my resident expert on the latter my man.

I found a post with less than 64 comments!  Wow.  Sardi, you ROCK!  I will always be one of your biggest fans.  And, while Bob may dream about Hulk Hogan and his illegitimate son.  I will dream of a day when we can sit down over a beer and have a conversation that will last long into the night and maybe the early morning. 

Have a great summer!
