It's a new year and enough is enough, it's time for a change.
English-Canadian, live right here in Calgary Alberta, out in the acreages, in the peace and quiet. Currently I work for local government, policy advisory being my strong suit.
I'm an old school fan, but when I say old school, I really mean it. I've been a fan of pro wrestling since 1987, though I was just four years old at the time. It's been a fine, rather peculiar ride. From WCCW, the NWA and JCP to WWf and WCW, and now to the present day WWE I have seen a lot of things, some good and some bad, but when all is said and done I love pro wrestling.
I am a fan of Puroresu, Japanese Pro Wrestling, especially New Japan's Strong Style. I follow the action there quite closely and I feel WWE and New Japan can learn a lot from one another.
I have my favourites in wrestling, Bret Hart, who you absolutely had to be a fan of, growing up in Calgary, Randy Savage and Miss Elizabeth, an immortal duo, the Ultimate Warrior, whose corny and energetic run in the WWE left a great impression on me at least, the Midnight Express though I am partial to the Lane and Eaton incarnation, Rick Rude, who deserved more in my opinion than what he had in pro wrestling, though his career is still respectable, and of course the Undertaker.
I have new age favourites, Christian and Wade Barrett are two stars who I actively root for.
I am heavily invested in NXT, with some of my favourites being Bray Wyatt, Leo Kruger and Bo Dallas.
I'm a traditionalist in some ways, I am often overcome with a bizarre wave of nostalgia, so forgive me if come across as old fashioned at times. I can be passionate and at times aggressive, and if I do, I apologize in advance, it is simply because I care and love pro wrestling.
I'm always down for a chat, whether it be in pro wrestling, association football, politics, movies, TV, books or whatever else you want to discuss.
Hey man, thanks for being a fan, aka "Dustin's Diamonds."
And to top it all off, I've got a cold!
But in all seriousness, I guess it's funny I'm called for being such a Cena fan, because generally I take things in a similar tone. I look at the comments regarding Ziggler, Ambrose, etc. I usually disagree, and I get flack for it. Then I just smile and nod, because it's really just the internet and wrestling (as much as I love it,) isn't a huge part of my life. I don't take it as seriously as some people. Which, may in itself explain why I'm really not bothered by the Cena's quasi-Glasgow Smile.
Thanks though. You know, I really don't care much for a lot of people here, but you're one of the few who I generally wonder what you think on certain things. Especially considering how long you've been watching wrestling, as opposed to me, who started watching regularly about 2002. This entire time I thought you were around my age, but I think I'm quite a ways off now. I think that's kind of cool though, how we can have minor disagreements, but I think for the most part we actually come to similar conclusions.
You write some awesome comments man.
Thanks for the props Alden! Always appreciate the support.
