Before You Jump Off, #READTHIS - Apr. 12, 2012 - Living Inside The Outside Of The Ring with ONE Voice
LIVING INSIDE THE OUTSIDE OF THE RING by ONE Voice
Yes! Yes! Yes!...Yes! I'm getting one of those shirts by the way most likely from WWE.com. That's right, the cheap plugs have started - Mic Foley knew what he was doing. Anyway do we really need to go into how Daniel Bryan lost the WCW, I mean World Heavyweight Title in 18 seconds? Probably not, but Yes! Yes! Yes!...Yes! Did you see the slap heard around the world? That was the 1st of what I hope will be many attempts for the WWE to bring "legitimacy" back to their brand of wrestling. We have not seen it in years. Even Stone Cold Steve Austin said if more things are said (and I would assume done) that aren't scripted then things would get better. It would get closer to the product that he put out, that Rocky put out.
Let's stop for just a moment. I've got something that I really want to say to those that have faithfully been behind the Jump Off and this article. We've done this article writing & reading gig for a couple weeks now right? I just want to say Happy Belated Easter to everyone. Please forgive any delay in checking out this week's article. All I can say is "Can't a young, man get $ anymore? Can I have a bad chick, without no flaws?" As a matter a fact, I had some business to handle with an Easter bunny before I could come back to y'all. Thank you Kanye for "Theraflu" on Good Friday by the way in case you all missed the reference. As you can tell, things are going to pick up a tad this week. The introduction weeks are done and who knows what I'll say. But regardless, I appreciate you letting me spend this time with you all. Now that I'm back, let's run through some facts...
Well Cena really did get his lip busted on Raw. If you didn't see it, you should YouTube - Cena Slaps Brock - that little bit of disrespect really doesn't equate getting your face bashed in by a former UFC fighter when you're used to arguing via social media with an established actor. That's no diss to the Rock. It's more of a wake up call I think for Cena. Am I right? Brock's agreed to 30 to 40 appearances with a year, and yes, the Rock has signed on for a year as well. For a much smaller number of appearances obviously. At this point, I feel it may lead to some battle with those two. Regardless they are both legends and not being caught drunk on TMZ trying to pull their girlfriend out of her car by her neck like Scott Hall. That's a sad case, almost worst than the other news I heard this week that I figured I'd share. Ric Flair is considering coming back to the WWE next year when his TNA contract is up, while the Bella Twins are thinking of leaving. Yeah I said the Bella Twins. My girl is the finest hands down, but really, who would you rather look at Brie and Nikki or Flair? Personally, I think the best way for him to go out was when Shawn Michaels beat him a few years ago at Wrestlemania. There's no need to come back and take away time from those that could possibly build a better career for themselves. At least at TNA/Impact whatever they want to call it, he was a mentor for people who might need it.
So my question is this, out of the several employees that claim they are leaving the WWE, who is actually leaving and who is staying? Who is coming from TNA? Is it a big money maker that the internet keeps buzzing about? Does it really matter? Will someone already there step it up like CM Punk has? He even said he was wrong about the Rock, and his feelings towards him coming back. To be important, rather relevant and exciting in wrestling takes a huge toll on you. It's enough to do something that only a select group (no matter how big) understand, and then you have to make it look appealing to maybe draw more fans...come on man, it's not as easy as it looks. With that said, those that will grow in the business now must be more like those of the past - they must actually want it. If they want it, the fans will want it, and will watch.
Peace & Hair Grease as Always
