PerfectHeel’s Tale of the Tape
WARNING: This blog is written with the understanding that it’s readers are somewhat seasoned wrestling viewers and therefore I will not spend a lot of time explaining more basic wrestling knowledge, kayfabe storylines, or concepts. However, i love to answer questions and hear feedback, so please, post away.
Right now, all I seem to be doing is watching wrestling. When i was younger (and I mean way younger. 23 months old to be exact) I started watching wrestling with my uncle. I was instantly addicted. The violence, the drama, the characters, the attitude, I fucking loved it. However as I got older, the story lines kept getting more and more absurd, and the product on TV no longer was about two guys beating each other up as it was how much smut can we get away with and how watered down can we make the product while people still pay full price. Now, I was a kid when I loved it and I’ll never deny the fact that really, wrestling is pretty much kids entertainment and that is who it’s true audience is and should be. However, the fact that I’m back into it now tells me that i didn’t just “outgrow” a hobby of mine, but the hobby itself changed and i just refused to lower myself to it. People my age and older who watch it should be aware of what they are watching and enjoy wrestling for what it is; a fun, violent soap opera with incredible athletes who occasionally do really insane stunts that make you say “wow”.
I’m writing this blog not so much as a play-by-play recap of events that happen, but moreso as a commentary on things that I see going on in the WWE and I’ll probably reminisce about the “golden years” of the WWE/F (1988-1993)
