Why WrestleMania STILL matters (A blog for the former Wrestling fans)- @Chitown_Eazy
"You a grown man still watching wrestling?"
These are the type of questions and jokes I hear frequently when I say something about the WWE, or if I'm at the gym catching Raw on a Monday night. Truth is, I don't watch wrestling nearly as much as I used too, but I still watch it enough to know what's going on. Reason being is because I still enjoy it and I feel like I owe it to the kid in me. I grew up watching wrestling and although it's scripted it's still people there that helped raise me and shape my child hood. Triple H, the Rock, Chris Jericho, Shane McMahon, the Undertaker all of them are still active in some way for wrestling and I owe it to them to watch. Now these nostalgic names are not wrestling every week, these niggas old as fuck. No way on earth they can sustain the wear and tear of traveling and wrestling weekly without breaking a hip at their age. But, there is a time that you're guaranteed to see some of these legendary names and others, but only once a year and that is at WrestleMania.
As you probably know, WrestleMania is basically the super bowl of wrestling, but it's more than that. It's like a family reunion. Although you're not going to know a lot of the new wrestlers performing, you're going to have a lot of those "damn he still wrestles?" moments which will take you back to those old feelings you had as a child. Those chills you used to get when music hit and you'd hear "If Ya SMEEELLLLLLLL" or when you heard a glass shattering theme music and you knew someone is about to get a can of whoop ass opened on them, followed by a couple of beers being consumed. Mania is the one time a year you can revisit those old feelings and if you were raised as a wrestling fan like me, you owe it to them to watch it.
So call up your homies, head to someone's crib and enjoy WrestleMania just as you did as a child... Hell at the minimum this gives you an excuse to go out and get drunk on a Sunday right?
