Wrasslin’ Bloggin’: An Introduction

So I’m gonna be doing this for a while now.

See… for a while, I’ve been posting random Facebook/Twitter musings and people have been like, “Hey…jackass. Start posting them online and shit.” I didn’t think anyone really cared what I thought about wrestling or even that THEY cared about wrestling but… hell, why not give this a go?

So now you’re wondering about what I’m going to do, huh? I’m going through this shit chronologically and I have been going through since about 1983 to where I am now, which is the RAW/Nitro the night after WCW World War III 1995.

I do star-ratings but I just wanna re-iterate right now: I am not a wrestling expert. I have a pretty vast knowledge of the subject as an avid watcher and fan of wrestling but I am not someone who can tell you that this MOST DEFINITELY was a five-star match and if you don’t agree with me, you must be wrong. I WILL rate the matches on a scale (which I will provide here in a moment) but I am certainly not the final say in anything. If you think I short-changed a match, fair enough! If you think King Mabel vs. Yokozuna was an underappreciated classic, that’s just fine!

So here’s the scale I’ll be using… it’s pretty standard.

 

Ratings:

***** (5 stars) – Classic
**** (4 stars) – Minor flaws but still excellent
*** (3 stars) – Perfectly Acceptable Wrestling (to blatantly steal from another reviewer)
** (2 stars) – Okay-ish but really flawed
* (1 star) – A high spot or two maybe but otherwise bland
DUD – Bad match
Negative Stars – Insulting to the public’s intelligence

 

So that’s that! Expect reviews to come in quick and often!

I’m Still Alive!

I am still alive.  I sort of went off the radar here for a couple of months but alas, I have returned!

I finally have one year of college under my belt and am at the halfway point to earning my diploma in broadcast journalism.  So I am super excited to be one step closer to achieving my goal of becoming a broadcaster!  I am also extremely delighted to have a break! This year has been so tough with more work than I think I have ever encountered in my life.  But the pain is worth the gain in my opinion…here I am with my cliches again…oh boy!

So I’ll be trying to get back into the habit of updating my posts as regularly as possible.  I just want to say thanks to Brendan who kept up his SNL reviews during my unofficial hiatus, it is great to read them.  I just have to say as well that I totally agree with Brendan’s last review on Betty White’s hosting of Saturday Night Live, it was a very good show and I enjoyed watching it immensely!  Never thought that I would see the day when little old Betty White would say “she’s a lesbian” over and over in a sketch on live television.

Anyways that’s all I have for now! Just wanted to let you all know that I am still alive… that is if anyone even cared! haha!
