Hey folks, I'm Sahu _ The Dream Merchant..I've been around for a while...this is my first blog!!! I don't know how ppl will react to it..But...,
What is this blog all about??
This blog is all about my love towards professional wrestling (WWF/WWE in particular) with The Rock as the center piece. I know it’s late n The Rocky's season is over n the current flavour is Brock. But...,
What motivated me to write this blog??
I got the idea of this blog when my boss asked me a unique question for which I had no answer except a shy smile....He asked me "Why are you using the phrase 'It doesn't matter' too much these days?" Yes!! I'm using the phrase quite often these days :d....so I want to write a blog here how and why that simple phrase and THE MOST ELECTRIFYING man who used it has influenced my entire teenage....
How my love towards WWF started??
Back in those days pro-wrestling was a taboo in India...n very few people used to watch it..and I was one among them...When I started watching WWF, people who caught my attention were Harts (owen n Bret), Mr.Perfect, British Bulldogs, etc....I loved them and esp Bret 'The Hitman" Hart...when he said he was/is/ever will be the Best, I believed in it... okay, let’s save Bret for a different day now...so, my love towards WWF started with Bret...n I became a huge fan of pro-wrestling n also started watching WCW (which used to be telecasted in late nights in India..).
That was the time When Rocky Maivia came and initially I was not at all interested in him...but, the moment he joined NoD and started giving speeches in third person I loved it...In India the royal families used to speak in Third Person back in 60s-70s...probably that is the reason why he became more popular than any other pro-wrestler in India back then...pro-wrestling fans throughout the nation were singing tunes along with The jabroni beating, pie eating, trail blazing, eye brow raising Superstar..
Whenever we cousins or friends come together, we used to write our own scripts cut our own promos imitating the pro-wrestlers and used to play WWF :d I was always The Rock!!
People’s Champion and the Ultimatum of my Madness
When he started calling himself the People’s champion, my liking towards him has increased…here I want to tell one story of my madness...one day, we all school boys gathered at my residence and started playing WWF on on our terrace...I as usual played The Rock and after a story / promos and other things...The Rock has won the match...n I imitating The Rock has climbed the terrace wall which is on the third floor (G+3) and started smelling like The Rock..
My neighbor has noticed it and he complained to my parents..My parents then gave me a beating..:d n complained about me n my gang in my school..My school principal also prevented US (The WWF boys) meeting each other even in the intervals n lunch breaks..for months I was not allowed to see WWF...:d
Losing interest in WWE and pro-wrestling
I lost interest in WWE when ppl like The Rock n SCSA left and with the deaths of Eddie and Benoit (esp Benoit) my interest has got reduced by a large amount…though I still follow wrestling, I do not have that eagerness I used to have earlier.
The Great One’s Return and the Nostalgia:
When The great One’s return was announced, I again started watching wrestling with more interest..I wanted to feel the electricity again…though The Rock was not at his best…still I thoroughly enjoyed him… I started using his catch phrases once again in my daily routine and now that The Rock is popular everyone understood it and some laughed at me
But I took this opportunity and invited all of my old friends and we had a gr8 meet throughout this week, we have brought all the DVDs of The Rock, The matches which we have recorded when they were telecasted in TVs…the matches we have downloaded and everything...we had a projector n placed it on the rver bank and watched all of those videos..We have once again played with our own stories and our own promos…and had a gr8 blast…we relived our teenage….the only difference is that the cool drinks are replaced by Vodka and Rum..:d and now we are not as athletic/agile as we used to be in our teenage..
Then, I realized why WWE has brought The Great One back!!! Hope he makes more appearances for The Rock's MILLIONS of Fans like me!!!
Thanks for Reading!!!
