Every weekend, Joey will give a glimpse of the things that have entered his mind.
Hi. I have a lot of thoughts about wrestling. I decided to start a concept where I talk about what’s on my mind every weekend. I hope it’s enjoyable.
Follow me on Twitter and let me know if you want me to hit on any wrestling topics next week: @JoeySplashwater
Daniel Bryan was pulled off the WWE European tour due to injury concerns. Rumor has it Bryan has suffered a concussion. I think fans need to back off making strong comments about injuries involving wrestlers and all professional athletes.
For example – Many are discussing whether Bryan should change his style, start to plan a retirement and are just making critical comments about him. The same happened to Rey Mysterio on a more disgusting level with it becoming common to laugh at his injuries. It makes no sense.
When your body is dealing with concerns that could effect your career or life, your opinion is the only one that should matter. Second guessing things in wrestling is the nature of the beast but trying to make decision for a wrestler himself is ridiculous.
After an amazing Wrestlemania, I was expecting a good card for Extreme Rules. Early signs indicate it will be a tough task for the show to deliver. The biggest issue I have with it is the stipulation in the Randy Orton vs. Seth Rollins main event. A cage match where the RKO is banned.
The cage match is outdated in 2015. Fans have shorter attention spans and the cage match tends to be a slow story. There’s also so many similar gimmicks in WWE. With the Hell In A Cell match having its own PPV and cage matches being on random episodes of RAW, no one cares about it as a feud ending PPV main event. Worst of all, it constricts the wrestlers into telling a very specific story and limits their athleticism. The RKO being banned is also silly. These guys deserve a better chance.
