This  is  my  first  pro-wrestling  post  since  2014.  The  reason  why  I  haven’t  done  any  coverage  was  because  it  left  me  tired  and  exhausted.  But,  I  still  watch,  and  here’s  my  thoughts  on  the  past  year:

1.  The  Retirement  of  Daniel  Bryan/”The  American  Dragon”  Bryan  Danielson:

I  expected  that  it  would  happen  because  of  his  concussions.  The  same  thing  happened  to  former  NXT  Tag  Team  Champion/Current  WWE  commentator  Corey  Graves.  It  is  also  sad  because  this  was  his  life  from  1999-onward,  and  it  all  ended  in  a  health  risk.

2.  Gail  Kim’s  Induction  Into  The  TNA  Hall  of  Fame:

She  earned  it  and  deserved  it.  Enough  said.

3.  WWE  Reviving  The  Roster  Split/Brand  Extension:

WHY??????!!!!!!

4.  The  Disrespect  Towards  Byron  Saxton:

Cruel,  inhuman,  disgusting,  and  I  wouldn’t  be  surprised  if  he  went  off  on  everyone.

5.  New  Japan  Pro-Wrestling (NJPW)  on  AXS  TV:

I  LOVE  IT!!!!

6.  Mexico’s  Consejo  Mundial  de  Lucha  Libre  (CMLL)’s  Partnership  With  Lucha  Libre  Elite:

It’s  a  great  because  we  get  to  see  a  lot  of  independent  wrestlers  on  national  tv.  It’s  also  great  to  see  CMLL have  talent  from  Total  Nonstop  Action  (TNA),  Ring  of  Honor  (ROH)  and  New  Japan  on  their  shows.

7.  TNA’s  Mismanagement  Issues:

TNA  has  to  be  EXTREMELY  CAREFUL,  because  this  was  one  of  the  things  that  led  to  the  fall  of  World  Championship  Wrestling  (WCW).

8.  “Broken”  Matt  Hardy:

They  said  that  this  was  a  gimmick  that  wasn’t  supposed  to  happen.  But  when  it  all  boiled  down  to  it:  The Final  Deletion,  Delete  or  Decay,  The  Great  War,  Trick  or  Delete  and  Total  Nonstop  Deletion,  it  helped  TNA!!!!!

9.  Moose,  Mike  and  Maria  Kanellis  Bennett  Leaving  Ring  of  Honor  To  Join  TNA:

While  it  was  sad  to  see  them  leave  ROH,  it’s  wonderful  that  TNA  signed  them.

10.  Damien  Sandow  Arriving  In  TNA  and  Becoming  Aron  Rex:

I  enjoyed  his  anti-WWE  promo  his  first  night  in  the  company.

11.  The  TNA  Grand  Championship:

The  rules  of  the  match  for  this  type  of  championship  stumped  a  lot  of  people,  myself  included,  but  I  feel  that  the  title  will  stay.  I  also  believe  that  TNA  should  revive  the  Knockouts  Tag  Team  Championship  and  the  Television  Championship.

12.  Ring  of  Honor’s  Women’s  Division  The  Women  of  Honor:

They  introduced  the  division  last  year,  and  while  I  like  “The  Exotic  Goddess”  Mandy  Leon,  Deonna  Purrazzo,  TNA  Gut  Check  winner  Taeler  Hendrix,  Veda  Scott,  Kelly  Klein and Faye  Jackson,  it  would  be  great  IF  THEY  WERE  ON  TV  EVERY  WEEK!!!  PLEASE  FIX  THIS  SINCLAIR  BROADCASTING!!!!

13.  WWE’s  Revived  Cruiserweight  Division:

This  was  highlighted  by  the  return  of  The  Brian  Kendrick  to  WWE,  along  with  the  arrival  of  former  ROH  star  Cedric  Alexander  and  former  TNA/ROH  star  T.J.  Perkins  (for  those  who  may  not  know,  he  was  Manik in  TNA).  It  also  came  with  Cedric  revealing  that  he  lost  22  pounds  just  to  participate  in  the  WWE  Network.com-Exclusive  Cruiserweight  Classic.  I  don’t  understand  why  the  revived  division  is  only  seen  on  “Monday  Night  RAW”,  along  with  having  their  own  show  entitled  “205  Live”  airing  Tuesday  nights  on  the  WWE  Network  after  “SmackDown  Live”.

14.  “SmackDown”  Moving  To  Tuesday  and  Becoming  A  Live  Show  Like  “RAW”:

WWE,  you’re  NEVER  going  to  derail  the  Tuesday  Night  Lineups  on  FOX,  CBS,  NBC,  ABC  and  The  CW  Network.  Enough  said.

Before  I  close,  I  would  like  to  congratulate  “Broken”  Matt  Hardy  and  his  wife  Reby  Sky  on  having  a  second  son  who  will  be  born  sometime  this  year!!!

THAT’S  ALL   AND  THANKS  FOR  READING!!!!!

Here  we  are,  the  300th  post!!!!!!  I  am  more  than  happy  to  have  made  it  this  far!!!!!!  That,  and  I  also  know  that  there  are  more  questions  that  some  of  you  have  asked,  so  here  it  goes:

1.  In  some  of  your  postings  about  professional  wrestling,  you  have  given  Total  Nonstop  Action  (TNA)  Wrestling  a  lot  of  praise.  Why  is  that?

Because  according  to  their  slogan,  Wrestling  Matters.  That,  and  covering  WWE  at  times  can  be  exhaustively  nauseating.

2.   Will  we  ever  see  the  movie  category?

You  will,  I  guarantee  it.

3.  Will  we  see  more  entries  in  the  television  category,  and  more  quotes  of  the  day?

You  will.

4.  Was  the  conventions  category  one  of  the  surprises  that  you  had  for  us?

Absolutely!!!!!

5.  Have   you  seen  Ring  of  Honor  (ROH)  Wrestling’ s television  show,  and  we  will  see  that  covered  on  here?

I  have  only  seen  some  of  it  online,  partly  because  a  lot  of  the  television  stations  where  I  live  are  not  a  part  of  the  Sinclair  Broadcast  Group  (SBG).  Hopefully,  I  will  cover  ROH  on  here  because  a  lot  of  the  talent  from  WWE  and  TNA  were  with  them  at  one  point  in  their  careers  (CM  Punk,  Daniel  Bryan,  A.J.  Styles,  Christopher  Daniels,  Samoa  Joe,  Chris  Sabin,  Alex  Shelley,  Jay  Lethal,  Desmond  Wolfe/Nigel  McGuiness,  etc.).

6.  Will  you  ever  do  a  YouTube  show?

It’s  still  in  the  planning  stages,  and  I  am  hoping  that  I  will  have  ready  this  summer.

Up  to  this  point,  I  still  enjoy  doing  this  wonderful  blog,  and  a  the  same  time  endured  a  lot  of  ups  and  downs  in  my  personal  life.  But,  I  as  the  saying  goes,  Tough  times  don’t  last,  Tough  people  do.  I  would  like  to  thank  you  all  for  reading,  commenting  and  subscribing  to  my  blog!!!  And  as  the  always  popular  saying  goes…………..the  best  is  yet  to  come!!!
