#ThankYouDanielBryan

In case you missed it (likely you didn’t), professional wrestler Daniel Bryan (or Bryan Danielson) officially announced his retirement from professional wrestling due to issues stemming from multiple concussions. While it’s sad to see him go, I’d much rather have him walk away from the business on his own accord rather than have to be carried out.  I’ve posted many times about Bryan on the site before (see HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE, HERE & HERE), and after watching him wrestle from his days in Shawn Michael’s Texas Wrestling Alliance back in 2000 to his WWE run, I’m going to miss seeing him on TV, but  I’m glad I got to see his work when I did. #ThankYouDanielBryan!

Remember when Daniel Bryan joined the Wyatt Family? Yeah, Me Neither!

Daniel Bryan Joins the Wyatt Family

On the final Raw of 2013, Daniel Bryan did the unthinkable by joining the Wyatt Family. This came months after being ambushed and attached by the group and always falling short of victory.  In storyline, it made sense as Bray Wyatt is a manipulative mastermind and Bryan was at a mentally weak and existing time in his career. With Wyatt promising that they could take over the WWE together, it got plenty of people talking going into the new year…

Bryan Danielson vs. Paul London: 2-Out-Of-3 Falls Match

Remember when I talked about professional wrestling possibly being the greatest form of performance art in world? Well if not, click this link; if so, then here’s an example of the performance art of professional wrestling.  On April 12th, 2003, Ring of Honor (ROH) hosted their event, “The Epic Encounter,” and in what is probably the match that stole the show, Bryan Danielson (now known as Daniel Bryan in the WWE) took on Paul London in a physically grueling Two-Out-Of-Three-Falls match. Oh boy, it’s QUITE a watch….and is an AWESOME match! Continue reading “Bryan Danielson vs. Paul London: 2-Out-Of-3 Falls Match”

Eric Young as TNA Champion; or TNA, Stop Trying To Make Fetch Happen!

Oh yeah, THAT was a Mean Girls reference. TEN YEARS STRONG BABY!!

Anyway, Jeuron Dove — my homeboy, fellow Aggie (me Texas A&M, him North Carolina A&T), and awesome wrestling fan — wrote an interesting piece on his WordPress site, Wrestling and All That Jazz, about Eric Young winning the TNA World Heavyweight Championship on a recent episode of Impact Wrestling.  Now, when I say interesting, I mean that he openly and directly calls out TNA Wrestling for making such a desperate move to blatantly copy what the WWE recently did with Daniel Bryan at WrestleMania XXX early last month.  Also, when I say “desperate”, I mean sad and unoriginal.

And now…DANIEL BRYAN & CM PUNK MEMES!

Since I know that it’s become clear that I enjoy LEGO, Sonic The Hedgehog, do-it-yourself projects, and indie games, I haven’t been secretive of my appreciation for professional wrestlers Bryan Danielson (Daniel Bryan) and Phillip Brooks (CM Punk — did that just blow your mind?).  Rather than just talking about a match, how about I show you in images how awesome these guys are? More after the break! Continue reading “And now…DANIEL BRYAN & CM PUNK MEMES!”
