Is Wrestling Taking Over Your Life?

Viggo DrakuvichCorrespondent IMay 6, 2010

Recently the WWE released wrestlers off of there roster and a lot of us were upset.  "How could they release Mickie James and Shelton?"  The internet wrestling community produced many articles on the subject stating where these stars should go to next.  We vented, we were pissed.  But one fan took it a bit too far and threatened to blow WWE headquarters.

This is of course, too extreme.  The 99.9998% of fans would never think about about doing something as terrible as threating to blow up WWE headquarters or threaten anyone.

I have read and commented on the many articles written on bleacher report and have enjoyed them very much.  I think this incident should help to remind us all that this is just entertainment.  Wrestling should stay a hobby and not become an obsession. 

Yes, I own many wrestling DVDs and merchandise and I am a huge fan of many WWE/TNA superstars.  When I was a kid, I would love watching Andre the Giant, Hulk Hogan, Roddy Piper.  I would play with my brother with action figures pretending to be Macho Man or the Ultimate Warrior.  But I grew up and became an adult. I do realize that there is a world outside of wrestling.  I go to the movies, hang out and share time with my fiance, go out with friends, etc. 

So just a friendly reminder.  Don't let wrestling or any other hobby consume you. 

It is ok to be mad or upset if your favorite superstar was released, or if they didn't win a title, or if there are bad storylines.  But remember, in the end, this is just wrestling.
