Re: TNA: Changing The Face Of Pro Wrestling
January 15th 2006
I had been at the arena for about 2 hours before workers started to arrive. Not much went on, I just sat in the office and tried to think of the good and the bad of tonight. I knew it was all for not though because anything could happen tonight. I left the office and greeted people as they entered until I ran into my best friend.
Jarrett: Lambert, congratulations on making it to your first PPV
Me: Thanks, that means a lot coming from you
Jarrett: Donít let it go to your head. If it were up to me you would have never started here.
Me: Ok Jeff, itís been one month and every time I see you, youíre on my case. Whatís the deal?
Jarrett: I didnít want some internet geek running a top wrestling promotion
Me: Why? Feel threatened?
Jarrett: Ha. No kid threatens me
Me: Face it Jeff. You didnít want me coming here because you knew that I would threaten your power. Everything was fine for you before I came here. You got what matches you wanted, you wrestled whom you wanted, and you got the belt when you wanted. I come in and put you in a 10 man gimmick match against legit titleholders and to top it all off, I bring in a huge star. Oh but it gets worse doesnít it Jeff? I become good friends with Christian Cage and now you feel even more threatened. But here me out on this one Jeff, you shouldnít feel threatened. You see, as much as I donít like you, I respect you. I respect what youíve done in this company up until now and I respect what you do in the ring. And if I really hated you that much, I would have had you drop the belt this month, but no, Iím building the big blow off match so when you finally lose the crowd goes ape shit. And then what do I do with you? Well it depends on whom you drop the belt to. If you lose to Sting, Iíll feud you with Christian and if you lose to Christian, Iíll feud you with Sting. Either way youíre still in a high profile feud and no title is needed. Now, is this making any sense at all to you Jeff?
What went on after that stays between Jeff and I. Are we the best friends? No, but we arenít mortal enemies anymore either. After that, I went in the locker room and talked things over with some guys before I called everyoneís attention.
Me: Hey guys, listen up real fast. Calm down for a few ok? Ok, now I know this isnít your first go round but it is mine and it is the first PPV of 2006. First off I just want to thank everyone for working hard this past month. As for tonight I just want to say that if anything goes wrong in your match, work around it and donít lose your cool. Also if anyone has a problem with your match, come talk to me and we will work things out ok? Everyone just go out there and put on a show for the people here tonight, the people watching at home, the people reading online, and most importantly, yourself.
I stepped down after that and some told me it was a nice speech. Luckily for me, nobody came up to me to address their match. I hope that means everyone is cool with everything. Now there was only one thing left to do, sit back and enjoy the PPV.
My Comments: Only thing left to do is the PPV Promo (which will be done tonight or tomorrow) and then the PPV it self (I hope to have that done by next weekend at the latest). Keep the predictions coming in and if you didn't pick match winners, please do.
