Nick Hogan: Coming to a Raw Near You in Eight Months
Itâ<80><99>s sad. A seventeen-year old kid gets locked up for eight months for doing something moronic and he will get rewarded for it. Nick Hogan had faced up to five years following being charged for reckless driving involving serious bodily injury, a third-degree felony.
Eight months in county lockup will scare him straight, right?
Letâ<80><99>s hope Santino Marela wonâ<80><99>t be his riding partner when Nick joins the WWE.
Hollywood doesnâ<80><99>t create stars anymore. They only shine light and the cockroach â<80><9c>celebritiesâ<80> scurry. Reality TV and televised pro wrestling shows donâ<80><99>t highlight the good in anyoneâ<80>¦ they simply exploit flaws and focus on dark voids that fill all Manâ<80><99>s heartâ<80><99>s. But if everyone is bad, can anyone be good? The â<80><9c>shade-of-grayâ<80> bullshit never worked for me.
William Regal is a heel and some in the IWC wants him to go away. To me, Regal is a breath of fresh air because he is truly loathsome. His character is patterned after monarchy, a â<80><9c>Kim Jong-ilâ<80> like portrayal. Statues will be erected in arenas across North America if Regal continues on his way. Now, to be truly powerful, Regal needs a soul-crushing army. If the WWE plays their cards right, Regal vs Triple H could headline the Royal Rumble and draw a good buyrate.
John Cena is â<80><9c>goodâ<80> but people love to boo him. Mr. Kennedy is â<80><9c>badâ<80> but people want to cheer him. They flip Kennedy but not Cena. Why canâ<80><99>t the crowd turn someone?
Is Jericho bad or good? Or is he just being honest with Shawn Michaels?
Edge is a scumbag. Mickie James is cute and perky and her character is staying on the Lithium. But, even McDonaldâ<80><99>s comes up with bad ideas like the Arch Deluxe and now gourmet coffee. Floyd Mayweather didnâ<80><99>t deliver the buyrate at Mania because no one liked him and they turned him too late. The main event build was so shitty and tepid that it didnâ<80><99>t deliver but you knew that would happen by reading my column.
That said, if I could write a wrestling show with people I liked, I would do it in a second. Creating is fun. Who would you like to write a wrestling show with? Any of your friends? Mates from university? Guys you work with? I would be interested to know.
