Never mind Kathie Lee and Hoda taking #BrieMode to a whole new level. Never mind El Torito vs Hornswoggle in a gator suit. And never mind that fake Roman Reigns interview. None of that matters.

None of it matters, because everyone… AND I MEAN EVERYONE would lose their minds when The Most Electrifying Man in Sport Entertainment, The Rock, comes out to face the Hero of the Russian Federation. Everyone would lose their minds when Dean Ambrose leaves John Cena high and dry, only to return… with hot dogs!

Sometimes, the lows can be quite tolerable… because the highs are oh so high. Such is the existence of a wrestling fan.

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!
