THE RANT: There's More to Life than Headlocks

Submitted By James Walsh on 04/17/08
On an episode of the ESPN Classic comedy show called Cheap Seats, one of the hosts made the remark while reviewing a wrestling show, "there's more to life than headlocks". I remember mumbling, "wrestling is life, the rest is just details". I still defend my remark but I do see the logic in the comedic remark.

Don't be fooled, I know the remark was basically mocking wrestling fans as a whole. But, in an odd way, it is true. Think about it.... When was the last time you sat down and watched a wrestling match because you enjoy the match and you enjoy seeing it for what it is without a critical eye or nit picking every aspect of it? It seems like forever for me. And, I have to wonder if I watched the shows with the same critical eye that I do now, would I ever have fallen in love with this stuff to begin with?

Al Snow spelled it out in an interview to air this weekend on this site. "We take men, we put them in their underwear, and we have them fake fight. Why take that so seriously?" Sure, Al was just trying to illuminate the ridiculousness of the over-the-top negativity towards wrestling by people who clearly know nothing about what it is like to actually be a wrestler yet somehow claim to be experts BUT, it is true!

One of my favorite shows in the world is/was Perfect Strangers. A guy from a country that, as far as I know, doesn't exist comes to America to meet his long lost cousin who takes him in and the comedy follows. If I watched that with the eye we're trained as "smart marks" to have on wrestling creativity, we'd be questioning the story concerning the immigrants visa status and would bitch, moan, and complain that we couldn't locate Mepos on the map. You know what I mean? I think what I'm trying to say is...

SHUT UP AND ENJOY YOURSELVES FOR A CHANGE! IT IS A WORK! CUT THE CRAP AND HAVE FUN WITH IT!

That's all for today, folks. I've got a lot I want to rant about but I had to get this off my chest.
