Pro Wrestling Today Is a Microcosm of Corporate Entertainment

Professional wrestling remains tremendously popular media today because it encapsulates our collective obsession with justice. The recent WWE-UFC merger shows that the story of American professional wrestling is also one of ruthless profit maximization.

Sareee has just started a youtube channel (that everyone can feel free to subscribe to) and she has already put up a match from her self-produced show from 2019 between herself and Syuri against Takumi Iroha and Mayu Iwatani. Just a bunch of the wresters in the world have an awesome match. #JapaneseWrestling #WomensWrestling #Joshi #Wrestling #PuroResu #ProWrestling #Stardom #Marvelous #SareeesSpecialNight https://youtu.be/9P7poAyddxk?si=rMjQNbOvWiKg-w7v

If you don't think is serious, then you've never seen a robot hit a stunner on a dinosaur. Chris Brookes is back from America and he's ready for some . Watch Antonio Honda take Maya Yukihi. Baliyan Akki take on Mune Nakamura and Gaia Hox. Then Brookesy himself does battle with Miyukia Takase. Plus a dinosaur and a robot do battle in and out of the "arena" https://www.youtube.com/live/HY1J6ydtiJk?si=GicoXDivShCUplqI

The Pro Wrestling community is very quiet here...

I know you all exist...I follow a few of you.

It's WrestleMania weekend! Talk dammit!🤣😅

Either this Philly crowd is being REALLY respectful of Taylor by not chanting "BO-LIEVE" or "Uncle Howdy!" or they genuinely don't recognize him...🤔

Smoking a joint, tearing up about Professional Wrestling and the good times it gave me, while watching Paul Heyman talk about RVD passing him a joint.

Wrestling is truly something special for those who can respect that it's a TV show and not the NFL.

What the hell is up with WWE's sets nowadays? They seem to be changing a LOT.... I LOVE IT!

Especially tonight, throwback to 2008 Royal Rumble when John Cena returned after just 4 months from a pec tear.

Damn. It was hard enough watching it once, but The Rock and Roman REALLY "laid in" those belt whoopings...

To ALL my followers and mutuals:

This weekend is WrestleMania weekend.

I am very excited. However, I know most of you don't follow me for that.

Therefore, I'm giving you a heads up! I will be using the following hashtags a LOT over the course of the weekend and it WILL contain spoilers.

If you don't want to see these posts on your timeline, FILTER THEM. Preferences > Filters

ANYWAY...enough of my negative rants.

Who's ready for WrestleMania?!!?!??!

I'm super excited tbh. I haven't been this excited for a WrestleMania since 30 and that was mainly because I was in attendance...🤣

Let's just say, WWE doesn't hit THIS good anymore. Gotta enjoy it while it's here. We know it probably won't last long, considering their history...😬

🤷‍♂️it's WrestleMania 40 Weekend!! Let's gooo!!!!

The opening promo from Adam Copeland on this week’s was weird and felt forced. Him doing a pump up speech about how great/fun is after Punk’s recent comments just felt minor league. Then later on the same show they book an all-time awful match where Jay White gets beat up by Billy Gunn of all people for like 15 minutes straight then it ends in a DQ. Jay White’s run in AEW has been absolutely criminal.

@timbowman I couldn't agree more...and their show hasn't been exactly "must-see TV" lately. Like I don't want blood for the sake of blood, make it mean something. Make it mean someone is getting their ass whooped. Having Texas deathmatches on weekly TV doesn't really make much sense....😬🤦‍♂️

I really want them to be and do good. They're just having a hard time understanding what Professional Wrestling is all about.

There's no super good "must-see" storylines. The Christian Cage/Copeland angle was good and the Swerve storyline is 🆗 but nothing is like Cody/Rock and Roman right now.

Not gonna lie, it's gonna be a LITTLE weird seeing Lil Wayne perform at Wrestlemania....also basically won't be able to watch his performance without my dad making comments about rap music...🤦‍♂️

@BeAware@social.beaware.live avatar

I gotta say, seeing the AEW arena mostly empty feels pretty bad...😬😔

I really had hope that it would work out and maybe it still will, but it looks bleak right now.

Kind of a missed opportunity to not have The Rock wrestle on Raw.

Would've gotten a lot of goodwill from the fans...🤷‍♂️

Just watching it now. ADHD is bad for live shows😬

So....rumor is, WWE will be getting "Extreme" when they move to Netflix....😁😅

ECW is coming back apparently with an "MMA style" approach and of course being more edgy. This has been hinted at recently with the new "era" talk from Triple H and all the cursing/blood lately.

I'm excited as hell tbh. This is going to test if Paul Heyman can still book things as good as he used to....🤣

LET'S GOO!!!

PS. Attached is the apparent new WWE ECW logo.

I must say, I'm really excited about this "new era" of Professional Wrestling. We can only wait and see how the "ECW Redux" will do🤷‍♂️😅

I REALLY wish Tony Khan would stop tweeting nonsense drama. It makes it hard to watch the show every week. Especially considering that their shows aren't that interesting...🤦‍♂️

I, really, really like this book. It is an excellent piece of journalism that delves deep into the career of a hardcore originator.
