Since I haven't had much of anything about wrestling in a while, I thought now is a great time to left a fire under my ass. Here are just a few things that have been going around for the past week that I want to praise and vent about. Feel free to join
MTV's Tough Enough is back! I know I should have posted this one way earlier. but life is what it is. Anyway, MTV is bringing back the one and only show I ever really enjoyed on their network, Tough Enough. For those that don't know, Tough Enough is a lot like WWE's NXT, just with relevant wrestling competitions. What I loved most about this show is that wasn't limited to men, women were in the same competition. Everyone was given the same amount of work to do as everyone else. I mean the women could actually wrestle and two of them actually won out of the the three seasons I believe the show had. That is what was most impressive. They didn't do it like the ridiculous diva searches where they have them running around in a itty bitty bikini. So I hope that when the show does come back, they keep it the way it was and not tweak it. Also Stone Cold is hosting it. STONE COLD! One of my favorite wrestlers in the world who is known for his no bullshit attitude toward anyone, no matter the sex. So if anyone can make this show get back to its greatness, it is the Rattlesnake!
Also there is talk going around about making the Bella Twins heels. Thank God, I think they will be less annoying that way. They are good wrestlers when they actually wrestle, but jeez, stop it with the whole arm candy stuff. It is so annoying. They also say Gail Kim will be a heel. After her return from TNA to WWE, she has not been given the proper respect she deserves. I mean this woman won the WWE Womens Title during her first match years ago. When she left TNA to come back, again, nothing but arm candy and sometimes not even that. I believe making her heel will give her the respect she so deserves. You may not like heels, but a lot of them you do respect.
Then there was talk of letting Brock Lesnar appear 3 times prior and the day of Wrestlemania. These appearances would have made Lesnar an extra 7 figures. I know you noticed the "would have". Apparently WWE wants him, of course we fans want to see him, but UFC has denied it. Come on! I would love to see Lesnar wrestle again and I will take anything. He shows up three times, gets paid and leave. That is it, UFC! I am sure you can spare just a little bit of time for him for this.
I am sure you all know by now that Alberto Del Rio won the Royal Rumble last night. At first I was shocked, but after some consideration, I think it is appropriate. I like Del Rio, he may talk too much, but he backs it up. I love his cars and it doesn't hurt that the man is pretty easy on the eyes. Del Rio is definitely rising fast, which is pretty incredible considering he hasn't been in the WWE for long. He is this year's Sheamus.
Then last by definitely not the least of things that happened was again at yesterday's Royal Rumble. Kevin Nash and Booker T! WHAT?! Both men left for TNA for some unexplainable reasons (well Booker for sure, can't remember Nash's because it was a long time ago). They both showed up for WWE's first Royal Rumble to host 40 wrestlers instead of the usual 30. They came and apparently kicked some ass. I did not catch it last night, but I have seen the pictures. No one is really clear on what is in store for them, but I would love for them to come back to the WWE where they belong.
