Howdy there everyone,
I thought I would take this time to talk to you about my real one true love….Wrestling! I know, possibly not what some of you were expecting but still…..
I was first introduced to this thing called wrestling back in 2007 by my then boyfriend. We stayed up all night and it came on one of the channels and I was hooked. I remember one of the matches being The Miz vs. Scotty 2 Hotty feat. The Boogeyman. It was a new thing for me and I had never seen anything like it. I was hooked from the get go. When I wasn’t working or with my bf (we split 2 years later) I was checking out the wrestling. It was just something that I could get my teeth into so to speak. And I have been hooked ever since.
Now, the reason that I thought I would share this with you is because wrestling has been quite an emotional thing for me. Not only is it my favourite sport, but it has helped me overcome some of life’s greatest challenges, like death.
I had a quite close family member pass away earlier this year and while I was being pressured to continue life as normal, all I wanted to do was crawl under a rock and stay there. Fortunately for me, wrestling helped. When I needed to escape the world I would either watch the wrestling on my phone or I would put in a DVD and watch that. It would help dull out the pain because I could be transported to another world where everything was good (even when my favourites were losing). It has helped me and I am very grateful for it for that reason.
Some people…actually, almost everybody I know says that I am obsessed with wrestling. I actually have a blog called Wrestling Gossip, My Way where I post my thoughts and feelings about all things wrestling related. I read alot of gossip sites about wrestling and normally it’s just my take on the stories that interest me. And also it’s where I put my picks on who I think will win on PPV’s. I started this blog back in 2007/2008 and I have been surprisingly keeping up with it since then. I do go on and off it at times but it honestly is a place where I can post my feelings about any wrestling topic and if anyone wants to read it and share their opinions than they are more then welcome to
One of my fond memories of wrestling is from back in 2009 when I went so see the RAW Live tour that was going round Australia. I went and saw it in Adelaide and I have to say, I have never felt so comfortable being by myself in a group of strangers than that night. I got to see the Miz, Randy Orton, Triple H, Carlito…..It was awesome. I couldn’t wipe the smile from my face and even thinking about it now, I have that same smile. It just made me so happy to be somewhere and to be truly happy. My only regret is that I didn’t take my camera. Oh well, maybe, if there is, next time………
One of my favourite things about wrestling is the different stipulations and different kinds of matches. I’m not so much a normal match girl but I like stipulations and different elements to the matches. One of my favourite matches comes from the 2005 PPV, December to Dismember. It was an all ECW PPV and I loved it. The main event match was an EXTREME ELIMINATION CHAMBER MATCH! It was epically awesome. If you want to know what it is, look it up. But I loved it purely and simply because it was fast paced, entertaining and had weapons! A table, a steel chair, a barbed wire baseball bat and a crowbar. All made for one very interesting fight I have to say. That has to be one of my favourite matches of all time and I don’t understand how people can’t like it.
Another one of my favourites was at the 2008 PPV ‘Armageddon’ where defending WWE Champion Edge faced off against Triple H and Jeff Hardy (my fav wrestlers of all time). Jeff Hardy eventually won the bout and it was a momentous occasion because it was the first WWE Championship that Jeff had ever won. He had come so close on numerous occasions but never won when it counted. Even now, I still give exactly the same reaction of pure joy when I watch that match.
Well, it appears that I have spoken for too long. I think it may now be time for bed.
Until next time, have fun and take care.
