You know, lately I've been taking my anger out on you guys, it's not your fault I'm angry and I apologise if I've upset any of you. That said, this IS The Angry Smark and you know what you're gonna get. What I know right now is that
I HATE what's being done to Professional Wrestling (namely WWE) and the people that have no problem watching it happen!
That's right I'm sick of it, wrestling is getting the life raped out of it for what I consider to be no good reason and while I know that there are some who totally agree with me, I also know that there are too damn many who are willing to sit back and watch wrestling get turned against the LOYAL fans for the sake of sponsors, toys and children while also telling me that it's for the good
of the business!
If you are amongst those that wholeheartedly agree with me then well done, you have my respect, if on the other hand you think that I am wrong and bitter then you don't deserve the gift of life and are insulting the human race with your continued existence.
Wrestling was once about two men in a ring putting their health on the line for the entertainment of the paying public who paid their hard earned money to see those two men put their health on the line. It was a simple concept and it worked well. Why? Because the fans got what they wanted and had paid to see.
If you pay to go to a WWE show (and if you do, what the fuck! Are you nuts? If you want to give money away then there are many charities out there that would put it to much better use) you get midgets, fitness models, B/C List celebrities and maybe, just maybe, if Vince McMahon is in a good mood you'll see the occasional Wrestling match. Did you just hear those two sounds? The first one was Vince shuddering at the sound of the word "wrestling" and sight of it being used in the same paragraph as his companys name, while the other was millions of morons asking "Wrestling, what's wrestling?".
Vince has taken Wrestling away from the loyal fans who, haha get this!...HAVE STUCK WITH HIS DAMN COMPANY THROUGH THICK AND THIN!!!
WE PAID FOR HIS PAY PER VIEWS, TICKETS TO HIS SHOWS AND HIS MERCHANDISE AND HELPED MAKE HIM THE MILLIONAIRE HE IS TODAY AND WHAT DID HE DO?... HE FUCKING TURNED ON US IN FAVOUR OF RETARDED KIDS, PARENTS GROUPS AND OVERSENSITIVE SPONSORS, HE'S MUTILATED PRO WRESTLING TO MAKE IT MORE SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE, THE PROBLEM WITH THIS IS THAT YOU EITHER LIKE WRESTLING OR YOU DON'T, REGARDLESS OF HOW SOCIALLY ACCEPTABLE IT IS!
Most of these kids will forget about wrestling again once they turn sixteen and the ones that stick with it will be convinced that the bullshit that SuperCena and MEGAORTON and co present as wrestling every week is actual wrestling... sorry, sports entertainment
. If I keep using the word "wrestling" then Vince will shit himself and some poor bastard will have to change his nappy!
I need to calm down a minute. Breathe in. And out.
Ok where was I? Oh yeah, what Vince is doing is an insult to all the men and women who have risked their lives to WRESTLE for our entertainment and their paycheck. He's spat in my face and millions more and there are some who couldn't give a fuck because they think that he has the right to do as he wishes. Does that then mean that I
have the right to come and find these dipshits and stomp their testicles into dust? I sure hope so because I consider those
people to be unworthy of walking the face of this planet.
Wrestling is now a dirty word according to Vince and that makes him a disgrace to his fathers name and to the business in which his family fortune has comes from. Now I'm not saying that RAW should be two hours of nothing but wrestling, but stop banning moves just because one guy fucked it up once, stop ramming the latest semi-famous, five minute, flash-in-the-pan celebrity down my throat, in short stop pissing all over a hundred years of wrestling history and tradition just because you want the approval of whoever the hell it is you want the approval of!
Vince has forgotten the basic business principle of supply and demand. Why do I say that? Because I and many, MANY others are demanding wrestling and he ain't supplying it even though we're the ones with the money that he craves above anything else.
Think about this, when Hulk Hogan and Steve Austin were on top in the WWF they were also part of popular mainstream culture which accounted for the massive amounts of money that Vince made in those two periods of WRESTLING history. But now that he's trying so damn hard to get the likes of John Cena into the same position that Hogan and Austin were in the company profits have gone down.
In the late 1980's and 1990's wrestling was making money hand over fist on it's own steam and as a result, sponsors wanted in and Vince let them, but now he's begging for the approval of the likes of WalMart(not only WalMart, that just happened to be the first brand to spring to mind) and is changing the company just to get them and their money on board. What the hell is going on here? Have I lost my mind?... Possibly, but my point still stands!
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm fairly sure that the WWF was packing arenas all around America in the 1980's and the 1990's. I'm sure people were buying merchandise back then, so the only difference I see now is that there are a lot of pissed off WRESTLING fans who have been left out in the cold for no reason over than Vince's weird obsession with children. If he was in England he'd be put on a register and told to stay away from schools...
Now I'm gonna finish up soon but not before I say this: I WANT MY FUCKING WRESTLING BACK YOU SACK OF SHIT! IT'S THE KIDS THAT WILL WATCH WHATEVER YOU GIVE THEM NOT US SO AIM THE "PRODUCT" AT US BECAUSE THE KIDS WILL STILL WATCH IT ANYWAY YOU MORON!!!
That's it from me, I'm not done with this subject yet but if I keep going on this week I'll end up on a slab with a toetag and then who would you turn to to hear the truth?Exactly!
I ain't done with you yet Vince, but I know that you need to jerk off to some sweaty bodybuilders and that you've already taken the viagra, so until next week people......GET THE HELL OUT OF MY SPACE BEFORE I FETCH MY SHOTGUN!!!!!
