On almost a daily basis, people ask me why I watch wrestling. Usually, I answer them with generic winners like "I love the stories they tell and the athleticism I see" or "i respect the abilities of all the performers to be actors, athletes, comedians, improv artists, and more all at the same time". Not compelling stuff, I know. It's not very often that someone who doesn't watch will even remotely buy what I'm selling. To be honest, that's probably because most of the time, I don't buy what I'm selling.
Yes, I'm a fan and a writer of professional wrestling, but I'd be hardpressed to tell you that I love everything I see on WWE of TNA TV. As Alberto Del Rio would say, but you already knew that. You read my columns and you know that I don't always impress easily. Heck, sometimes I'm downright disappointed in something I see on TV. Unfortunately, it's those times that I question why I'm a wrestling fan in the first place. Then shows like last night's Money In The Bank come along, and instantly I remember.
From start to finish, last night's show was a joy to watch. Literally everything fell into place and with a hot crowd helping it along, it became the stuff of legends. That said, let's take it match by match and rate the booking!
