Random Thoughts III.

Just seen that Rey Mysterio is returning to raw this week and it reminded me that I have never been impressed by the man. Everything he does leaves me feeling underwhelmed and I will never understand why they thought a grief run with the belt would be a good idea. An unbelievable challenger who should be US title level at best.

Granted, he was innovative in places but I cannot buy into any of his matches (yes, even Angle didn't grip me) and his offence is weak as piss; I find it hard to suspend my belief when he wrestles.

Please tell me I'm not alone thinking this?

Never going to happen unfortunately. Kids seem to love all that shite. My 7 year old niece is currently watching a Chinese woman eat McDonald’s. That’s it. Just a woman sitting in front of a webcam, saying nothing and just munching away on fast food, noisily slopping her mouth in the most annoying way imaginable. Why this is a thing and why anyone watches it, I don’t know. They’re growing up thinking this is normal. YouTube’s fucked more kids than Jimmy Savile. 

I know, they're not going anywhere. I'd kind of understand if it was just kids watching. My nephew watches some drivel. But I know people older than me who think just being an obnoxious prick with a phone and a YouTube channel makes you some kind of top lad, all about the bants. 'Member when you had to have some kind of talent to be famous?

Probably just me being a miserable old fucker though.

My kids watch people playing video games and opening toys and to be honest, if I could’ve watched people play Double Dragon or Street Fighter and open wrestling figures when I was younger, I probably would’ve.

Fair enough on that. I probably would’ve as well. Can’t tell you how many hours I used to spend staring at the pages of the catalogue that had the Hasbros and Turtles figures on. But videos of someone eating McDonald’s in their bedroom? I’ll never get that.

I watch let's plays and speed runs on YouTube because you can pick up tips, and the people playing can be entertaining. Plus high level Street Fighter at a pro tournament can be a delight to watch.

I lost all respect for Rollins years ago when they did that documentary on him when he was injured and he sat on his couch in his rubbish bungalow in boring Iowa moping while sharing an ice cream with his tiny crappy dog. But somehow he manages to get even shitter. It's quite something.
