Finding that "Something"

Over the course of the last year, I have been trying to find that “something else to do.” I wanted to find not just anything, but a “thing” that would be meaningful and purposeful. Tossing around numerous ideas in my mind and aloud did not satisfy me, as all of those seemed directionless or purely selfish.

Certain events over the past couple months have directed me to something that I am excited to be a part of.

Why am I writing about this here? Well, it is professional wrestling related…

WrestleMania XXX Journal Day 3 - Friday April 4 (Part 1)

WrestleMania XXX Journal Day 3 Review (Part 1)

With all of the business of WrestleMania XXX week, I did not get an opportunity to write about anything else while I was there. Therefore, these journals are a reflection of events in New Orleans upon returning to Los Angeles.

In the lobby of the Marriott there were a couple WrestleMania banners and even a merchandise stand!

Week 1: WWE Win/Loss Standings as of SmackDown 4/11/14 (Started on 4/7/14 Raw) "The New WWE Season"

This was a week of the "new" in WWE. The top singles performers are either rookies or those who are returning to WWE. It will be fascinating to see where Daniel Bryan goes from here after a DQ loss to Triple H on Raw and a win with The Usos on Smackdown. Paige getting a surprise debut Divas Championship win against AJ Lee is also very notable as the "new season" of WWE starts. I was surprised by the amount of tag team and 6-man tag team matches on WWE programming this week, but it is a great way to feature many Superstars coming out of WrestleMania XXX.

On the NXT side of things, the soon to be WWE debuting Adam Rose and Bo Dallas both obtained wins while Mojo Rawley stayed hyped enough again to win.

WrestleMania XXX Hype Machine

The WrestleMania XXX hype machine is in full effect, and I am loving it. One of the reasons that WrestleMania continues to be a special event is because it is hyped more so than any other event that WWE produces. 

WWE is fully utilizing the WWE Network to its full advantage by presenting a multitude of programming leading to WrestleMania XXX.

The Importance of Championships

A few days ago I was listening to an episode of the excellent podcast that WWE Hall of Famer Jim Ross puts out called The Ross Report with Mick Foley as the guest. On this episode, he discussed the importance of the main championship in a pro wrestling company. To sum up his point, he discussed how every wrestler in the company should talk about wanting the championship to boost the importance of it.
