Are you a wrestling fan or a fan of complaining about wrestling?
It seems to me the Internet falls into these two camps. In the first camp you find all sorts of fans: WWE fans, New Japan fans, hardcore fans, old school fans, and yes, “comedy wrestling” fans. Some of these fans have strong opinions about wrestling, and they’re not afraid to voice them. They sound off when they see something they don’t like, whether it comes from Roman Reigns or Joey Ryan. But it isn’t constant. They don’t spend all their time complaining because it takes time away from enjoying what they do love.
The “Kool-Aid Drinkers” who pack the Memphis Flea Market every Thursday and Saturday here in Southern Indiana are a perfect example. A lot of those folks hate the WWE, and they don’t care much for New Japan either. But not even the threat of incoming winter weather would keep them from staying out late to see Mance Warner crowned the new IWA Mid-South Champion last night!
The other camp doesn’t seem to enjoy anything wrestling-related. Nostalgia, maybe, but nothing else. They hate the WWE. They hate comedy wrestling. They hate the Young Bucks. They thought Wrestle Kingdom sucked, top to bottom – except for maybe Jericho. I’m starting to see some of these folks don’t even watch wrestling any more. They have too many angry wrestling podcasts to listen to, and they just don’t have the time.
You can be a positive or a negative force in this world. If you don’t like something fine. Let your voice be heard. But for your sake – and those on your social media feed – don’t spend all your time complaining. Find something you do love. If it’s not wrestling, then move on and find something else.
It’s cool if you’re a wrestling fan. It’s cool if you’re not. But being a fan of complaining about wrestling? Come on, man.
