Wrestle Review: We're a Community Submitted by Andy Sullivan on 06/01/2018 at 11:06 PM
I'm going to take a bit of a break this week from my regular wrestling wrap-up. Well, I'll do a little but I've got something else for you guys this week.
What is the deal with this Bobby Lashley/Sami Zayn thing? I couldn't even watch that garbage skit a few weeks ago. Bobby Lashley's "sisters"? C'mon, WWE? Be better. They seem to be getting back into old patterns. That could be no truer than the dance-off on Smackdown. I understand the entertainment value. At least we're not back to doing lingerie matches.
But wait, I said I wasn't going to do a wrap-up piece this week. Old habits, eh? I get solace on wrestling twitter. We're a community. When one of us is feeling down, the rest of us are always there to lift them up.
We talk about our favorites. We might argue or disagree but it's all in good fun. We all talk about who we think should win matches and championships, who we want to win matches and championships. We voice our frustration over the product when it seems to be getting stale.
When I was a kid, I was pretty much on an island as far as being a wrestling fan. I bought the pay per view events and I'd eagerly anticipate the Sunday night when the pay per view occurred so I could watch and cheer for my favorites. I'd usually have one of the old Coca Cola TV trays with pizza and RC. Ironically, pizza and RC is still my go-to food.
Wrestling twitter gets each other. I can't help but wonder what if Twitter existed when I was a kid. Boy, that's a scary thought in a way! Now, however, Twitter provides us with a bigger outlet, a wider net to reach fellow wrestling fans from across the globe. And I wouldn't trade that experience for anything in the world. It's nice to find your tribe. That's what wrestling twitter is: a tribe.
