Transformation. Matt Hardy did it to Bray Wyatt and created The Fiend. Now The Fiend has seemed to make it his mission to change his opponents – just look at his gloves – HURT and HEAL. He’s hurt the likes of Finn Balor and Seth Rollins, while he’s arguably healed Daniel Bryan.
We’re hitting a milestone ourselves with Episode #400 as we wrap up 2019 and prepare for 2020. With that, we’ve come to accept our own transformation as wrestling fans. No longer do we glue ourselves to appointment television with 5+ hours of new and live content each week. We’re free to pick and choose what we want, when we want. Beyond the weekly action, there are now talk shows, podcasts, and various other forms of media to ingest.
If you’ve listened to us over the years, you know that with change comes some protest – but I think we’re ultimately headed in a good direction as wrestling content has never been so available and diversified. Don’t care for Corey Graves? Don’t listen to his podcast, and give The New Day’s weekly show a try instead. Hating on the Rusev love triangle storyline? Get three hours of your week back by skipping RAW – you can still keep up with the storylines by watching monthly PPVs or even “This Week in WWE” on WWE Network. None of the above your speed or flavor? Now there’s a solid alternative with AEW, along with the resurging TNA and NJPW offerings.
Here’s to transformation!
