I want to thank everyone for their submissions today. It’s amazing the type of following we have here at WrestleZone.com and today proved just how great all of you are. There have been some unbelievable stories sent in, but unfortunately we couldn’t get to them all. I’ll make sure that we start focusing more on the voice of our loyal readers in 2011, so keep sending stuff in!
In the meantime, please read the column below sent in by WZ reader, Jason Skinner. I believe everyone in wrestling – from fans to promoters to wrestlers alike – can get something out of it.
Happy holidays to each of you. We’ll see you tomorrow when it’s back to work as usual!
A Reminder Of What Wrestling Is…
I would like to take the time today to really focus on what most of wrestling is these days. Sure, we all know of wrestling in Japan, Ring of Honor, TNA, and of course the big boy, WWE. But everyone forgets the true foundation of the wrestling business. The Indies. Yes, the indies the poor little shows you hear run in gyms, bingo halls, and your local fire hall as well. Some of these guys are old stars trying for that last gasp of stardom. Some of these guys are nobodies who do it for the love of the sport. However, there is a good number of guys who end up being the stars of tomorrow. Sure, right now you might not have heard of that particular wrestler but one day he could be the next Shawn Michaels. They are known as road warriors.They travel up and down the United States trying to get their name out there so one day one of the big boys will give them the faithful call like a minor league baseball player getting a September call up.
