It’s morphin time!

Apparently WWE was homesick for America. So much that they decided they needed to celebrate country music in Music City – Nashville, Tennessee! Well, 3MB was ready to celebrate, at least. Big E Langston, meanwhile, had more meaningful things to be excited about, as he became the NEW Intercontinental Champion! Seriously, what are the odds we even see Curtis Axel again?

What’s that? Oh, right. This was the go home show for Survivor Series. Is anybody excited for that? Sadly, WWE has sapped the life out of us. Neither of the major championship matches are terribly compelling, and the rest of the card just wasn’t built up enough to make us care. Will there be some quality matches? You bet there will be. It’s just nice to have something at stake, and something with emotional investment. Come on, Mr. McMahon – we know your team is capable of character development and intriguing storylines that actually come to fruition!

For most of the last 30+ years of my life, I've been watching WWE. As a kid, Monday Night Raw hooked me from the start. From Bret Hart and Razor Ramon, to Stone Cold Steve Austin and The Rock, to CM Punk and Daniel Bryan.. I've witnessed the ups and downs and I'm proud to have enjoyed pro wrestling through the years.

Though I now watch in a much different fashion than I did when I was a kid (finding out Vince McMahon was the owner and Jack Tunney no more than a figurehead was like finding out Santa Claus did not exist), I feel like I have a much greater appreciation for the hard work pro wrestlers do and the things they sacrifice to entertain us.

It's still real to me, dammit!
