Thought of the Day: Why I Keep Watching

Last night on the forums someone asked if I still enjoyed watching wrestling.  My reply:
Absolutely. Yeah there’s A LOT of stupid stuff and you get tired of sitting through it, and then one night Fandango comes out and the fans start singing his song. Or Brodus Clay debuts as the Funkasaurus instead of another monster. Or you’re expecting some lame celebrity like Justin Bieber to be announced as host of Wrestlemania 27 and instead you hear “IF YA SMEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL”. Or the night after Rock dominates Wrestlemania 27 John Cena challenges The Rock to a match a year later and WWE basically says “Oh yeah. We’re going there!.” Or you see Joseph Park absolutely nailing the rookie lawyer character. Or you watch Raw one night in January and John Cena and CM Punk put on one of the greatest matches of all time on free TV for a spot int he main event of Wrestlemania and you can barely stay on your bed because you’re trying not to scream at them to kick out because you don’t want this to end.Yes wrestling is still fun. You never know when you’re going to see something amazing.

    I feel the same way. Wrestling has never been perfect anyways. There have always been bad angles and bad matches. Yes, the business has seen better days but the mark out moments still happen frequently enough for me to keep watching through the dreadful stuff.

    KB you pretty much hit the nail on the head. Yes Wrestling is not the “in” thing these days like it was in the late 90s but its still fun and its still doing pretty well Post-Attitude Era. Thats one reason I keep watching because im afraid I might miss something.
