Can we all just calm down?
So today we get three pieces of news. TNA spoilers point out that the Dudleys aren’t actually retiring (though that doesn’t actually erase anything I said on the weekend about them. Wrestlers generally don’t know the meaning of the words “go home and be good family members for God’s sakes”). Secondly, William Regal is probably done in the ring (he’s been slowing down for years, and he may be making it all but official that he’s transitioning to a full teaching role in the company). Also, there are rumours that the women’s division is going to be shaken up and Maryse may be on the way out (highly, highly doubtful).
I don’t care if every single one of these things comes true. We all need to calm down and take wrestling rumors with heavy grains of salt. Outside of this post, I don’t really talk about things that might happen in wrestling for a reason: nobody knows anything until it actually happens. Dirtsheets want you to think they know things you dont, but they really, really don’t. They might have back in the 90s when there were so many leaks in wrestling companies I’m surprised they all didn’t sink, but that’s just not the case today. Their guess is literally as good as yours. That’s why these websites are littered with re-posts of twitter posts, half-translated foreign interviews, and direct press releases from WWE, skewed to fit their marktard narrative. They’ve got shit.
I hate to be the dad in the Tumblr Wrestling Community, but come on, you’re the Tumblr Wrestling Community. Be Sexy.
I believe the Regal thing. But these days I only start throwing freak fits when Jericho is mentioned.
The Team 3-D thing sort of makes me mad, but maybe I should have learned enough from Terry Funk how much ‘forever’ really means.
The Diva stuff I never paid much mind. Honestly. How do we attain these lists of people whose jobs are safe? It’s silly. And I should have really come prepared with the Botched Spot comic strips related to this very topic.
Now for some true rumors that you’ve never heard before:
In other news, Punk is in the dog house AGAIN….
