I started watching the show “Best of the American Super Juniors Tournaments” from April 2005. Before watching this show, a topic for this article was kind of floating around in my brain. However, I wasn’t 100% sure if I would be entirely correct when talking about the subject. However, once I saw the first match of the show (Bryan Danielson vs. Spanky) I was convinced that I was going to bring up a good one.
What is it about pro wrestling? We watch it, we love it, we follow and we sometimes get really into it. It’s something like no other form of entertainment. The winners are predetermined, the rivals are best friends behind the scenes and people get made fun of for watching it. Yet there’s that certain mystique or something that attracts fans to it. It’s a sum of many factors.
For an honest guy like me, wrestling can be a very expensive hobby, although there are guys who most likely have spent way more money than I have on my hobby. I’m not a pirater. I buy CDs, DVDs, original videogames, etc. My opinion is that if the publisher makes the effort, they should get the money (although for reasons beyond my control, you will see that is not 100% possible, and you will also see contradictions in this article). Also, money makes the world go around. Part of the economic crisis can be related to piracy. But that’s a topic for another article and/or website. Not only do I have the tendency to buy originals of everything (although, I admit it, I have an iPod with illegal mp3s), I have systems of purchasing and watching stuff. So in this article, I will talk about my R.O.H. and general wrestling collection along with TV Series, along with my watching habits. Bare with me, it’s very complicated when you read it, but when I practice it, it’s pretty simple.
Although R.O.H. is my favorite promotion in the world, as with any promotions, it’s not perfect. It has its faults. It happens with W.W.E., T.N.A. as we all know, but R.O.H. back in 2002 was no different. Sometimes I would like to be at a bookers’ meeting just to know what the hell they are thinking.
