Politics and Wrestling: It’s Still Real To Me

If one lights a fire for others, one will brighten one’s own way. -Nichiren

2017 was a hell of a year for me and for Bet Wrestling. Just over a year ago I began writing for this website after a pretty long hiatus from the wrestling world. As many before me, and many since, I had become disillusioned with the world around me, and needed a break to see what I was missing in “real life”. During my time spent in pro wrestling, I missed weddings, birthdays, holiday gatherings, and all kinds of other events, but such is the life of an entertainer and/or athlete, as if you do not take that call when it comes, you may never get another chance.

Last year when I began writing for this site, I was in the midst of a protest, actually living on the street in front of Los Angeles City Hall in a tent with at least a dozen others, and a few dozen part-timers for 2 months. This was not even my first time staying at city hall in protest, I actually have spent more than 100 days in total at city hall in protest encampments. The last time was in protest against the lack of prosecution of killer police officers in Los Angeles. To be honest I know this is extremely hard for most people across the country to understand, as they could never imagine someone getting blasted for nothing, but here in Los Angeles its a regular occurrence, and for black and brown people its a fear they must face daily, even if it just rests in the back of their minds.

In the past few years, I have met countless grieving parents and family members who often never find out what really happened to their loved ones. The lack of accountability and the racist social structure often fails these families blaming the victims of police violence, instead of critically looking at the actions of the police who killed these persons. In order for this genocide to end, the public needs to be educated about what has really led to this, what the history of policing is, and how in 2018 we still live in a nation where black and brown people are not free, as they face imprisonment or death at a 60% higher rate than their white counterparts. As someone who has a mixed heritage, that was erased by whiteness, I can use my perceived privilege to inform others, and I do this in a variety of mediums.

I was told recently that there was no place for this in wrestling, but I disagree. Wrestling is and always has been a social commentary. Pro wrestling has a history rich in racism, sexism, and right-wing political leanings that carry on today. Linda McMahon is the Administrator of the Small Business Administration, a woman who’s mega-corporation WWE has bought up almost every major competition they have seen over the past 20 years or bought out their video catalog after the company died off. Kane is running for Mayor of his home County in TN. The President of the United States is a WWE Hall of Famer, yet many people want to pretend that wrestling isn’t political. Well here is a huge news flash, it is!

About two months ago the radio network I have been working with finally came to fruition and announced that we would be doing our beta launch. The next day my comrade Brandon said he wished there was a show about the history of wrestling in California, and I said: “let’s do one!”. That’s how our radio show Hollywood Jobbers was born. From the very first episode on, we had some sort of politically motivated commentary, as I met my co-host through the local protest scene. We have similar politics, and we both have a love for wrestling. Most of my politically active friends either don’t watch it at all or only watch the big shows, not the territory or independent level wrestling. Our network we are hosted on is a social justice radio network called RadioJustice.org and we are currently the only “sports” show on the network. Our hopes for the show are to educate and entertain, giving our own commentary on the past and present of pro wrestling from our point of view. So far its gotten great feedback from my friends in wrestling, as well as from those who listen to our network and are just discovering it, whether its non-fans or folks who haven’t watched since childhood.

We quickly realized that our show would have a bigger audience if we switched nights, as east coast folks reached out, and asked us to change nights so we were not on the radio against RAW on tv in their time zone. We have recorded 8 shows in the past two month period and most of the feedback has been positive, except for one hater who based his decision on one show. Our shows have included interviews when we could get them, as due to our original studio backing out after the project began, we have had to struggle to find quiet places to record, and times that work for us and our guests to get them on the phone, rather than in studio as we had originally planned. Despite not having a studio we have consistently produced content for the network as we promised. In 2018 we plan to cover more topics, continue to bring you fun interviews and hopefully, our networks goal of building our very own studio will come to fruition.

Those are just two of the many projects I have been working on. Since Digital Media Management is my main gig, I work with over 50 companies, organizations, and people to help maintain, or run their pages, and to create or build content for them. It’s such a wide range of products, services, causes, and people, its a ton of work to keep it all together, hence why for many of them I am a team member, or mainly a consultant. I get pages started and teach their owners how to run them. Then they decide whether they want to operate them or pay me to do it. I am hell bent on organic reach and think most paid advertising has proven to be useless for the majority of those interested in online marketing. I instead implement and teach ways to target the direct audience people want to hit, which is the most important part of online marketing, knowing your audience.

Some things I may associate with, may not be perfectly politically correct, yet even then I spent much effort to use the platforms I can to socially education and motivate others. Many have tried to shut me up over time, including the government, but I am still here, and still getting published, and most importantly still watching my numbers and hits grow.  In one year my content on this site alone has gathered over 150,000 hits, and this site has seen over a quarter of a million unique visitors this year, and almost a million visits! That doesn’t account for the other sites I write, or create content for or manage, this is just one place, where I can spew out my thoughts in an editorial commentary and not worry about censorship even when the point I make may not be agreed with.

And yes, that is your right to disagree with me, it’s your right not to listen to me, or read my ramblings. If you don’t like what I have to say, that’s OK, as not everything is for everyone. When I create media on my terms, it is on my terms, love it or hate it. And before you say “no one wants to hear what you have to say” maybe you should make sure you aren’t saying that to a person who’s actually getting more hits on their hobby then you do on your passion site… just saying.

2018 is gearing up to be an awesome year, and I would like to thank all those who have supported my return to wrestling through writing and media. It’s been awesome to see how many folks are truly supportive of what I do. And thanks to the Owner of BetWrestling for standing behind my work, and allowing me to express freely what I feel needs to be said, even when it’s an unpopular opinion. Thanks to all those who have uplifted my voice, or stood behind me, it means a lot to have your support.

WWE Clash Of Champions Predictions!!

UPDATE – See the early betting odds for this event by clicking here!

It’s that time again! Sorry I have been really busy and not writing as much as I should be! I recently launched a new podcast about wrestling on an all-new internet radio station. I’ve been so busy I almost forgot the PPV was this Sunday!

You can watch it on the WWE Network for FREE if you are a new subscriber! If you live in the Boston area, you can still get tickets on Stubhub or TicketLiquidator, but as you already know, this will be a sold out show!

So here are my thoughts on the matches as they stand as of today:

Zack Ryder vs. Mojo Rawley – MOJO!!!!!!! Need I say more?

Breezango vs. The Bludgeon Brothers – Oh Breezango, what have you gotten yourselves into? I think that Harper and Rowan are going to murder them.

United States Champion Baron Corbin vs. Bobby Roode vs. Dolph Ziggler (Triple Threat Match) – I am so looking forward to this match!!! All these guys are great wrestlers, and are hard-hitting wrestlers. I think that Bobby Roode does have the ability to take the belt away from Corbin, however, I don’t think it will happen in a 3-way match, especially where Ziggler is involved.

Randy Orton & Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Kevin Owens & Sami Zayn (Shane McMahon and Daniel Bryan as special guest referees) – Sigh. WHYYYYYYYYYYYY???? While I am sure this match will have its moment’s and I like all the guys involved, WHY???  Someone tell Owen and Zayn they are 6 years too late on the Occupy hype train, that crashed and burned 3 years ago fools. Lame. I don’t care who wins… this is stupid, fire whoever wrote this garbage, not Zayn and Owens.

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. The New Day vs. Shelton Benjamin & Chad Gable vs. Rusev & Aiden English (Fatal 4-Way Match) – I am so happy to see Shelton Benjamin back in action, even if he does have to team with Gable… (ha!) I think this match is gonna be your typical clusterfuck 4 way tag, with lots of broken bodies. The Uso’s will most likely retain…

SmackDown Women’s Champion Charlotte Flair vs. Natalya (Lumberjack Match) – This match is going to be awesome! I love watching both these women wrestle, but sorry Charlotte, I gotta go with Nattie on this one! Get that title back on your waist where it belongs!!!

WWE Champion AJ Styles vs. Jinder Mahal – Sigh…. why? Wrestling was getting interesting again, and then we got slapped in the face with a momentum stopping bitchslap. I really don’t want to watch the same people wrestle again and again and again. Jinder lost… he is a cheater, and does he really deserve a rematch? Nah they won’t give us Styles vs Nakamura yet… But I would have much rather watched him wrestle Rusev than Mahal again. AJ will retain the championship, or WWE may be attempting to incite a riot in Boston.

While this is a “Smackdown” branded PPV, I am not as excited for it as I usually would be. The highlights of this PPV will be the women’s match and the tag team clusterfuck for me.

WWE TLC 2017 Predictions!

It’s that time again! I am writing up my predictions for WWE TLC 2017 and hope I can keep up my momentum in being fairly accurate. What I didn’t see coming was 3 superstars falling ill, and I hope they recover soon! I do have to say it was heartbreaking for all those Sheild fans stoked about the reunion.

So here goes:

Sasha Banks vs. Alicia Fox (Kickoff Match) – Alicia Fox makes a good point that she has been around for a long time, yet rarely gets a good shot. I think this will be a fun match to watch. I also think Alicia Fox has experience and is a huge cheater so there is a good chance she will win this match.

Drew Gulak to present a WWE Cruiserweight Championship Edition of his PowerPoint Presentation (WWE TLC Kickoff)  This sounds so… exciting?

WWE Cruiserweight Champion Kalisto vs. Enzo Amore – I think the WWE universe has turned on Enzo Amore 100%. You would have thought the end of his partnership with Big Cass would have left him the one people felt sorry for, but in light of all the media surrounding him acting like an ass in real life, really makes you wonder if his newest incarnation isn’t his most real. I think Kalisto is great, and a good fit for the cruiserweight champion. I think he will retain his title, but I also think there is a potential from interference from other competitors vying for a shot at the Championship.

Asuka vs. Emma – All I can say is poor Emma. Like a lamb to the slaughter, she has no idea what she “won” when she beat 4 other women to get the opportunity to be the first to wrestle Asuka in her main roster debut. Asuka is going to destroy like 80% of the WWE women’s division. Sorry, Emma, you ain’t got a chance.

Cedric Alexander & Rich Swann vs. Gentleman Jack Gallagher & The Brian Kendrick- This match is going to be awesome. I am so looking forward to this. I think Gallagher and Kendrick will take the win.

Raw Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss vs. Mickie James – I really hope Mickie James hands Alexa Bliss her ass. Honestly, her bratty girl wanna be Harley Quinn gimmick is played out, and not all that original. While Bliss is ok in the ring, she sucks at cutting promo’s and it’s almost as painful to listen to her speak as it was when WWECW hired Kelly Kelly. I hope Mickie James walks away with the title. She deserves it.

“The Demon” Finn Bálor vs. AJ Styles – Bray Wyatt getting sick was the best thing that happened to this PPV. This will easily be MOTN. They should just make it the main event at this point. I think the Demon may just run right over AJ Styles.

 Kurt Angle & Raw Tag Team Champions Dean Ambrose & Seth Rollins vs. Intercontinental Champion The Miz, Cesaro, Sheamus, Braun Strowman & Kane
(5-on-3 Handicap Tables, Ladders and Chairs Match)
This looks practically unwatchable. NO on so many levels.
1. No one wants to see Kane in this match. Go run your political campaign.
2. Why the fuck would Kurt Angle risk himself wrestling again in any match, let alone this BS.
3. Why not Jason Jordan with Ambrose and Rollins vs The Miz and The Bar, with Strowman as guest referee?

So this match will probably just be hella crazy, hard to follow, and Strowman is gonna kill everyone. It doesn’t matter who wins. The audience members are the real losers here.

Overall I am really disappointed that there is only ONE TLC MATCH. I am also disappointed WWE turned the main event into some clusterfuck no one really cares about. I just hope no one gets hurt.You can watch live from home on the WWE Network, and remember betting is open until the bell of each match, you can check out the latest lines here!

G.L.O.W. Debuts on Netflix!

Since I heard of its inception,  I have been super excited about the series on G.L.O.W.  aka the 80’s/90’s Gorgeous Ladies Of Wrestling, as I loved the ridiculousness of it all as a kid, and it inspired me greatly to wrestle myself. In 1986 when this debuted I was already well into wrestling fandom, and had always been sad there weren’t more women to look up to. What GLOW lacked in wrestling ability, it made up in character. The ladies of GLOW were easier to either love or hate, than most of the guys in other televised pro wrestling. Watching women like Big Bad Mama, Beastie, Hollywood, The Metal Sisters, Mountain Fiji, and all the other “characters” that were presented throughout the seasons.

This series focus’s on the making of GLOW and creates some fake (and maybe presents a touch of real) backstories of the women who became the in ring talent. So far I have watched the first episode and am totally enthralled. Just starting episode 2 now. When I get through the whole series I will write a full review. All I can say now, is this is totally worth watching.

Since we can’t show you more than a preview of the show, what we can show you is a look back at the pilot episode of the Original GLOW experience.

Enjoy!

My WWE BackLash Predictions

The odds aren’t out yet, but I like to write up my guesses on who will come out on top at WWE PPV’s.  Here are my picks for WWE BackLash on Sunday May 21st!

Shinsuke Nakamura vs Dolph Ziggler – Nakamura all the way

SmackDown Women’s Champion Naomi, Charlotte Flair & Becky Lynch vs. Natalya, Carmella & Tamina (Six-Woman Tag Team Match) – So confused as to why Charlotte is on the baby face team. I have a feeling she will turn on her teammates. I give this to Natalya, Carmella, and Tamina.

United States Champion Kevin Owens vs. AJ Styles – Owens is losing that belt… AJ will be the new US Champion!

SmackDown Tag Team Champions The Usos vs. Breezango – While Breezango looks fabulous, I don’t think they are as comfortable with each other as a tag team as the Usos are. Usos will retain the titles.

WWE Champion Randy Orton vs. Jinder Mahal – Jinder Mahal is killing it these days, but will his skills match up against Orton’s cunning ways? If he doesn’t fall into a trap, he may be able to beat Orton, but knowing Orton, he will put up a fight, and pull every trick out to retain his title. Orton will retain the WWE Championship.

Tickets are still available for BackLash, you can purchase them here!
