Christmas Gifts to Wrestlers From My Friends and I…

I’m strapped for time this week (combination of work plus family commitments), so I asked my friends on Facebook, the crazy group of people responsible for Commentfest, to come up with present suggestions that we want to give WWE and other wrestling performers during this holiday season. I’ve come up with ten of my own. The first ten are mine. After the line break, the comments are coming from the Facebook friends.

My 10 Christmas presents are going to…

Shawn Michaels – One more WWE or World title run because nobody deserves it more than you.

Mickie James – Anything you want, seriously. I hope you don’t leave the business as rumored because you are definitely a favorite of mine, but if you did I’d support you. Considering the lame storyline you’re involved in now I don’t think anybody would blame you for leaving. Additionally, I think you’re really hot. Don’t change who you are. Also, bonus points for not being pissed at me for calling you Mickie James-Canton. Can I suck up more? Yes, I can!

Chris Jericho – Another year in the world title picture. The tag run was fun, but you’re the best and you need to be recognized for that.

Triple H – A heel turn, please.

Michael Cole – Some direction from Vince McMahon & company that doesn’t make you sound like a complete douchebag. And if not, a legit KNOCK THE FUCK OUT~! punch from Big Show would do.

John Cena – Less written promos from the writers and more promos where you speak to the crowd in a manner that actually sounds like you. You’re a lot better than those writers make you sound.

The Raw Writing Team – The ability to book midcard matches that last longer than three minutes. Watch Smackdown to get an idea of how to do it.

Bret Hart – A successful and prosperous return to the company that you once loved so much. You deserve to go out on your terms in your own way. I hope it happens for you.

Jim Ross – Good health. Your voice is missed dearly. Please come back soon.

Guest Hosts – Take the time to at least try to learn the names of the performers. It’s not that hard, really.

Those are mine.

    Thought about turning on the tv to watch RAW, remembered little people’s court and said fuck WWE, it isn’t worth my sanity or anybody else’s over the age of 12.

    You really think this; To Cody Rhodes and Jack Swagger a thesaurus with out any words that have the letter S in it. – Is a good idea?

    Just imagine them trying to say thesarus. Or even Thank you for that matter…

    To HHH and Vince: A decision by the Little People’s Court sentancing them to a locked down old-folks home with daily jello so they do not try to escape.

    To Hulk Hogan and Eric Bischoff: See above.

    The four above people are a great argument for medically assisted suicide for old-out of touch-crazy people. By the way how can an over 40 year old man with glow sticks be part of a rebellious non-conformist wrestling stable? HHH is the definition of the establishment.

    While I’m a HUGE fan of your blogging and just your site in general, one thing that has been annoying me lately about you is the fact that you speak of Mickie James like she’s either a legendary woman that no one has seen the kind of in this planet, or is one your relatives that has done a lot for you. I think you’re great and everything, but I had to just point that out. I never thought something like that would annoy me, but I guess I’m just a long follower of you who have noticed that. Sorry if this offends you. Just wanted to let you know that it seems kinda lame… =/ Remember though, just because it’s criticism, doesn’t mean I hate you or anything like that. It means I care, right? ;)

    For John: I guess Mickie James so you’d stop talking about her like that every week.

    • December 22, 2009 at 6:55 PM

      I think that’s fair and I’m not mad you said it. Others have too. I think I overdo it a bit too. She’s a cool person that’s always been kind and gracious to me even though I’ve probably been a bit over the top. Basically she doesn’t have to be nice to me, but she is. I’ll try to tone it down because I’m sure it can come off as annoying at times from a reader’s point of view.

      • Aaron
        December 23, 2009 at 2:10 PM

        No, not really. I’d do it too if I were you… IMO, Maryse would also get the same treatment. ;p

    Regarding the MJC on going commentary, remember, very often, less is more. It is usually amusing, but you are going way overboard with the frequency of the MJC comments. It has amused me for several weeks, but it is turning into the WWE Main Event situation. You need new material to keep it fresh. It is like the same 5 or 6 wrestlers dominating the main event while holding down or squashing the mid and under-card talent. It causes good writing to become stale. As a person who really seems to have a inherent talent for booking or coming up with logical entertaining storylines, you should understand this. (The WWE or especially TNA really should hire you as a consultant.)

    As an aside, you should really take a fresh look at non WWE programming from 1980-the early 1990’s. It is more entertaining than you give it credit for being. Vince and Hulk Hogan really ruined wrestling for many years. The territories and more realistic wrestling were really entertaining. Plus they really knew how to have a real feud that could last for years. Off the top of my head, check out the Von Erichs vs. the Freebirds, Flair (and/or the Horseman) vs. Dusty Rhodes or hell I realize it was the WWF, but even Sgt. Slaughter vs. Iron Sheik. They hold up well compared to anything from the attitude era. Storytelling is a lost art in the WWE/TNA world. (Someone Please Hire Paul Heyman!)

      I see what you’re saying about MJC. I do it to be funny, mostly. It’s funny to me when people email me about her or congratulating me when she started following me on Twitter. I see what you’re saying, though.

      I have seen my fair share of WCW and NWA stuff. The problem is this. Whenever I write about older stuff, and this includes 1997 WWE, I barely get feedback or thoughts from people on it. Yes, I know it’s being read, but I need to know if people want more. When I write about a shitty Raw show like last night, I get amazing feedback. That lets me knows that people are talking about, which is great for a writer to know. I need to see more than website hits. And with Raw I get that every week. With columns on older wrestling I get very little.

    And while I am on my soapbox…

    To Wrestling Fans: An explanation that the Undertaker is not actually dead. This is probably the dumbest storyline in the history of wrestling. Plus, in my humble opinion, he could not wrestle his way out of a paper bag that has a hole on both ends and in the middle. The Undertaker makes me ashamed to be a wrestling fan. Every time I think about the Undertaker, I can only picture Vince rubbing his greedy hands together while discussing how stupid wrestling fans actually are. (In this case, Vince has a point. The Undertaker really isn’t a “dead man.”)

    I typically refer to the “Undertaker” as the “Underwearer,” but this nickname has never really caught on.

    To make things clear about MJC thing, I don’t mind you commenting on Mickie in a funny way. Keep the jokes because I think you’re a hilarious guy a lot of times in the Raw Deal Report. What annoys me is how serious you go about her at times (see above). I also remember what you said about her for being mocked with her weight and everything. I don’t like it either and I think it’s stupid, but I’m not her husband or her mom. I don’t care about it that much. When you joke about her, then get serious and then all the banners, pictures, awards for her & listing her first in the roster evaluation.. it’s just too much. It shouldn’t matter THAT much if she’s nice to you… Doesn’t matter at the end of the day, I don’t think… then again I don’t know how good contacts it is between you two, but yeah.

    • December 23, 2009 at 7:01 PM

      I’m a kiss ass first, a writer second. Ha. I see your point, though. I’ll keep it in mind. And if she got pissed about the things I wrote I’d respect her wishes and stop. To this point, though, so far so good.

  14. rob
    December 23, 2009 at 4:27 PM

    Here is my 2 cents on the Mickie thing. I think the weight joke was classless. And I am not her dad, or BF…or anything. It continues to sadden me at the “lameness” of the Divas division. And when you have an above average diva in Mickie, and then you take a shot at her weight? What is she, a size 6 or 8 maybe? Below average for most females anyway. She is obviously in great shape, so, more power to her. Society wonders where negetive female body image come from. WWE takes their fair share.

    • December 23, 2009 at 7:03 PM

      I think it’s a terrible storyline and the fact that they insinuate that she’s fat pisses me off, so I write about it. I’m pretty certain that people within WWE are reading my work to some extent. If I can use that voice of mine to somehow make them aware of something being shitty I’m going to try to do that.
