I’m not going to lie. I had a hard time concentrating at work after hearing the news about Seth Rollins. It’s not quite on the same level as Aaron Rodgers of my beloved Green Bay Packers going down.. but it’s not too far off from that either.

But as the sun sets on Seth’s first reign as champion, we stand at the precipice of what could be an interesting time for WWE. 16 men have been pegged as the next potential champion. There’s plenty of opportunity to make things interesting… Will they or won’t they?

In addition, the Taker vs Wyatt feud has certainly escalated. One could easily argue it came to an end on Monday, with The Wyatt Family looking like fools up against the Dead Man and the Big Red Machine. But it seems we’re not quite done yet… I’m curious to see how they salvage this one.

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!
