Royal Rumble weekend wrecked us. So much so that we couldn’t even get together last week to talk about it. Before we went down with various cold and flu symptoms, we had a blast, though. From the Ramble to late nights at Cobra Barcade… Something to Wrestle (…………..with Bruce Prichard) to all of WWE’s live events at Chase Field and TSR Arena.. it was a great time with friends old and new. WWE overall delivered a hell of a slate of shows. Becky Lynch shined bright. Daniel Bryan does what he does best. And the rest of the roster played their roles to an amazing level. If they can keep this up, WrestleMania is going to be a phenomenal show this year.

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!
