(Please go fuck yourself if you don’t like professional wrestling)
This moment really got to me. I complain every week while watching RAW. I know there are many people who are the same way.
The WWE has potential but they squander it. They rely on the same old stories week in and week out.
For once I shut up. I got behind a match. I didn’t care that it was scripted. I didn’t have anything to say.
I sat back and just took it in. And I was taken away by the pay per view. When CM Punk won, I jumped up in my room and started to dance.
I never dance. Ever.
That was real emotion. It was more emotion than I felt over any boring baseball game or Superbowl I’ve been forced to sit through.
Professional wrestling is very much real. I’m a fan today because of pay per views like this
The WWE took chances for the first time in a long time. An internet favorite, Daniel Bryan won the Smackdown Money in the Bank briefcase. He was a dark horse. I didn’t expect it. He’s a great wrestler who’s never had a bad match. I stood up when he won in disbelief and begin shouting.
I haven’t done anything like that since I was a kid watching John Cena matches back in 2004.
My father walked in and immediately knew that began yelling at me about how professional wrestling isn’t allowed in our house and that it’s changed who I am. He ordered me to shut off the wrestling.
His comments didn’t phase me. I turned down the volume and continued to watch.
Del Rio won another favorite of mine. Christian somehow walked away with the World Title which shocked me as well.
Then the main event came on. I had been looking forward to this match ever since it was announced.
The crowd exploded for CM Punk. I’m surprised he didn’t go deaf from the reaction. Cena received a deafening reaction as well except they were boos.
I can’t describe the match. You need to see it. You need to hear it. You need to feel the atmosphere.
When Punk won, my beliefs were shattered. The WWE had done the unthinkable. I never fathomed that one day they could reach the potential that they had been ignoring for some many years.
When the pin finished, I did my dance and then for the first time in a long time, I sat back and smiled. There was nothing better I could have asked for.
It was everything I desired. It fed straight into my soul and and satisfied the hunger for entertainment that been itching at me for so long.
WWE can fuck this up now for all I care. I had that moment and it’s all I wanted and needed to have.
