It's about getting your moneys worth. Would I have done it ? Hell no. I wouldn't even take a normal body slam, but that's why I AM NOT A PRO WRESTLER. Eddie Edwards is. And he decided, on his own, to go out there in his state. I really wonder if you realize that every show, every time, with any card, always has wrestlers booked to work through injuries. Injuries that probably nobody else knows about. Everybody is hurt in this business, some more than others -- but the bottom line is that there is NO exceptions when it comes to wrestlers working on a bad body.

Get over it.

Get over it.
Here's the thing. Eddie Edwards was BADLY injured and Pearce, Silkin, and everyone in attendance that night knew it, too. Pearce probably asked him if he could go and Eddie said yes. The problem is that Pearce shouldn't have asked him that question. The question is SHOULD he, and the answer is no. Every time. Eddie's injury required surgery THE NEXT FUCKING DAY. But he, like each one of us men that have a father, was taught to gut it out. Get through it. Don't be a pussy. So of-fucking-course Eddie said he would go. But he's too close to the situation to make that call so, IMO, it's Pearce or Cary's JOB to make him sit.

I know, I know. "Pearce isn't his father. He can't make that call." Bullshit. Pearce, if he had even a drop of fucking integrity, would have told him to his face, "You're hurt. Badly. I can't put you in a match where it could worsen." But Peace only cared about covering his ass in two departments: he needed Eddie to work so that he didn't look like a fucking moron for booking the Anything Goes match the night before in the first place, and to preserve the Ladder War, a huge draw.

So I don't blame Edwards for trying to work; it's what every one of us is taught from fucking birth to do. He's a jackass for doing it, but it's damn near impossible to fight those instincts under that kind of pressure. No, I blame every person NOT Eddie Edwards who told him he should get out there and risk his livelihood. My question to all those people who applaud Eddie's misplaced machismo is this: at what point is a wrestler too hurt to wrestle...even when they're telling you they're fine? If Eddie's neck is hanging from his body, but he keeps saying he'll gut it out, do you stop him then? Or do you let them risk his life? At what point are his friends and coworkers responsible, even a little?

I'm betting the same people who think Edwards did the right thing are the folks who think, at the end of The Wrestler, Ram got up, dusted himself off, and lived happily ever after.

Who are we kidding, we're all hypocrites.

Bryan Danielson vs. KENTA from GBH V: Night 2 is arguably the most loved match in this section when it comes to ROH (I'm sure people might like certain matches more, but pretty much everyone is on the same page when it comes to love for this match, unlike JoBashi or Dragon Gate 6 Man). We all know who was the idiot in that match....KENTA for agreeing to step in the ring with Danielson. Fuck, Dragon had a very bad shoulder, KENTA is lucky he didn't get his fucking head kicked in by a 110% healthy Dragon.

Well the important thing is it all worked out in the end. I just hope Edwards, or Dragon or anyone else who has to make this decision didn't do it just for the fans because a real fan would understand if they couldn't make the match.

I was legit pretty pissed when the fans got on Nigel a few years ago.
