They stopped the fucking match?

For those of you who haven’t read the results to WWE’s TLC PPV…one more abbreviation and the monitor was getting a fucking head-butt.

Or those that read my site and don’t give a crap about two oily guys in tights playing grab ass…

In the ladder match, Christian took a ladder to the face and it busted him open. So they stopped the goddamn match to fix him. TO FIX HIM.

America saves our souls again!

They stopped a match, to fix someone?

Everyone from Race, to Flair, to Mick Foley has been slapped right in the face.

Getting busted open the hard way was like a fucking badge of honor. People loved to have something like that go on. It showed how rough the business was, and always added to the drama of the match.

But this?! I’m so sick of this crap. That television, movies, music, and everyone BUT the parents are suppose to raise children. It’s absolutely sickening.

It’s only in America where parents don’t want to take to task their job of having to actually raise the children they bring into this world. They want the adulation, and the respect that comes with it, but want none of the responsibility.  They want to be able to divorce whom ever they want, without having to sit down and think it out before hand, to see if this is a person they want to be in it for the long haul with. No, no, of course not.

They want to be able to do what they want, when they want. They want to be the cool 40-something. They want to be at the clubs, hitting on some skanks. Or out making a ton of super-cool money so they can buy a bunch of lame crap that they don’t need.

Why watch the kids? There’s TV ratings and blockers for the television. We’ve got parent groups and protesters to make sure nothing too bad gets into movies. Oh, and whenever there’s something too nasty in a song, I can hear about it on CNN! So, I don’t need to watch or listen, or be involved in my kids life at any point.

Which is good. So when that little shit really fucks up, I can run and hide from all the blame. I can say that society made them they way they are. That the internet, and pornography made them into sexual sadists. Not me.

We all know it’s the movies that make violent children turn into violent adults. That blood in a wrestling match will make them a stone cold killer.

Heck, that’s why we started forcing prisoners to watch Disney movies. Because it’ll have the reverse effect and turn them into great people!

Or, not. Because all of that is a load of crap.

America is the land where nobody in their right mind wants to take the blame for ANYTHING. It’s always going to be someone’s fault, but not mine.

Where idiot parents aren’t teaching their children a goddamn thing, so these moron kids go off and have moron kids at young age, and the fucking cycle continues. So, I, as a responsible and intelligent person has to suffer by constantly having censorship shoved in my goddamn face.

It makes me want to kill someone. Hey…if I did, I could just blame the censorship.

  1. I’m a huge wrestling fan. I know far more about wrestling than you. And I can say that you are so incorrect about this. There is no reason for two GROWN MEN to BLEED ALL OVER each other in a fake sport. Read Bret Hart’s book. Even he says the use of the blade is a disgusting practice. In the NBA, when players get busted open, they are pulled out until they can stop bleeding.

    There is just no need for blood. If you want to be a gore freak, fine, then go find IWA tapes from Japan and watch guys bleed all over each other. Or find some abomination backyard wrestling shit where teenagers are thrown into boxes of lightbulbs. Or whatever. Vince owns a publicly traded company that, for better or worse, is forever linked to “wrestling” and when these idiots do that shit and get hurt doing it, that gets linked to Vince. So if he wants to say that’s not what his company’s about, I say more power to him. It’s not about censorship; it’s about not wanting his product to be tied to the kind of bullshit where guys are maiming each other for “entertainment.”

    But I can’t think of one match where my enjoyment of the match was enhanced by the blood, or that my enjoyment of the match would have been hindered if there was no blood.

    It hurts the match to stop it, in a sense, but other than the era of 97-05, blood hasn’t really been a big part of the WWE, and frankly I’m glad to see it gone. And again, in a “real sport” in someone is bleeding, they stop the game and take care of the cut. What’s the problem? WCW’s solution was to pan out so you couldn’t see what was going on… would you like that instead?

    If you have a problem with it… like I said, go on to Ebay, look for King of Deathmatches and watch Mick Foley and Terry Funk bleed all over the place. Or TNA and Abyss and his thumbtacks. But none of that is truly professional wrestling, and it just goes to show how little you know about a topic to which you’ve dedicated a blog a message board.

  2. I don’t have a problem with them stopping the match, or trying to distance themselves from the blood and gore and crap that honestly was getting a little excessive (it just wasn’t a main event without a guy getting cut on his forehead, apparently the only part of the body wrestlers are capable of bleeding from).

    I don’t see it as the old issue of censorship and Americans being weak and stupid and not knowing how to raise their children. There is a difference in bleeding in a movie and real people bleeding real blood for the sake of “entertainment.” In this day and age where wrestlers are dropping dead and WWE is constantly under tight media scrutiny, it makes sense that they would want to protect their workers– and also their image– more.

    Unlike Joe, I do have quite a few favorite matches that I felt were enhanced by the blood– the Eddie Guerrero/JBL Judgment Day match comes to mind– but I do have to agree with him that the blood is ultimately not necessary. Why not create drama with your creativity and technical skill, rather than by taking the cheap route of slicing open your forehead?

    As Joe also mentioned, they stop certain other athletic contests when there is blood… Personally, I prefer wrestling going the route of trying to seem like a real sport, and less like a freak show.

  3. Yeah, but Bret also said it adds to the drama.

    He said he couldn’t cut himself or Owen in their cage match, so they agreed to have a ton of close-calls instead. He also said that him and Steve HAD to have blood. As well as his match at WM8. So, Bret, the greatest technical wrestler of all time knows that blood is a great tool at times.

    When Shawn teased retiring because of his eye, would we have bought that without blood? No. It added to the drama. That’s just what it does.

    That’s great you know more than me, Joe. I am very jealous, trust me.

    I think blood adds to the drama of something. I don’t need it all the time, nor do I want it. I hate CZW, and I hate hardcore wrestling just for the sake of it.

    I like when it’s used as a tool, but not the work bench. Two of my top 3 favorite matches have no blood. Angle vs. Taker at NWO ’06, and Bret Hart vs. Mr. Perfect from SummerSlam 91. Is that pro-wrestling, Joe? I’d like to know.

    But I don’t think stopping a wrestling match because of blood is necessary. They can do that in real sports, great. But if it happens, let it happen.

    But that’s just me. I dig you guys weighing in.
