Death of Wrestling: The Slammys

Greetings to all… It’s David Davis with my weekly blog: Death of Wrestling. For all of those who read this regularly, you will know that this is not a blog about bashing wrestling; it’s a blog of a frustrated fan, who loves the business and wishes that each week it could be a little better. Just a short one for me as I take a brief opportunity to reflect on this year’s Slammy awards. First and foremost I must say that I really enjoyed them. I remember in years goneRead More

Around 9 p.m. ET Monday night, I started penning this very edition of The Commentary.

His own flesh and blood. Before one’s self comes family because they are the ones a person can truly care for, the ones that they see every day of their lives. When a man looks in a mirror, he can be disgusted with himself,Read More
