When we talk about the WWE, we talk about the Wrestling, and the Entertainment it brings. What we don't mention too often, or notice, is the other W. The one that stands for World, right before Wrestling.
World Wrestling Entertainment!
Let's look around us. Look at all us fans in B/R.
We have people like Shane Howard and Joe Burgett in the USA from Miami and Alabama respectively. We've got people like Hayley Graham from the UK. Scott Beeby from Australia. Sulayman from the UAE and Svyato from Canada. You've got me, Juan who's been in the UAE, USA and now in India.
The one thing that we share in common? We are all fans of pro wrestling.
We come from different cultures and countries, united together to be part of this wrestling world, or as Vince may call it, WWE Universe. Although, the WWE isn't the only wrestling promotion out there.
Even the WWE itself. William Regal, Finlay, The Great Khali, Rey Mysterio, Vladmir Kozlov, Santino, The Colons, Edge, Jericho, John Cena, Kofi Kingston, Paul Burchill.
These guys are from 9 different places all together.
Like Michael Jackson is said to have touched the hearts of people all around the world, the WWE has put together a spectacle that people all over the world can enjoy.
Now it is no longer just the WWE that's broadcast internationally. But, we have to credit it for making it very popular among us fans today.
Almost all of us started out watching the WWE, then spread out to different promotions and organizations.
Those of us who see the glass half-empty, will leave the product that we receive today. Those of us who see the glass half-full, will stay as loyal fans, watching every week with eager anticipation and excitement.
It's just amazing how many people watch wrestling from all over the world. Especially the WWE, you can get it almost anywhere you go in the world.
Not everyone has internet. But, most people do have TV.
And fortunately for them, due to never using the internet, can enjoy the product that is given to them without thinking about the backstage stuff. They're not even sure if it's scripted or fake. They'd love to see wrestling matches like Kane vs. Khali.
It's one of the biggest achievements of the WWE: reaching out to an international level.
For that, I thank the WWE, because we can all gather here today and talk about something we love. We are able to experience the one passion that we share through different cultures. We can have fun.
It's because of coming here together and having fun together, that we feel the excitement of watching pro wrestling, knowing that you're not alone, but are one of the millions of fans worldwide who watch it.
