You can't eat this soup standing up, your knees buckle

El Generico beats Pac with an Olé Kick to round out the best wrestling show of the year...on a WWE developmental pay-per-view.

Those last three words are incredible enough in and of themselves but the talent on show, top to bottom, was so frighteningly good that it was unreal. This is mid-90s ECW, this is mid-noughties SmackDown Six, this is late-noughties ROH, this is every rogue shock wrestling sub-culture there has ever been, and it's happening all over again.

I can't believe we've been slamming WWE Creative and bemoaning the lack of long-term storyline development and the lost ability to create true superstars. The future has been under our noses this whole time. It's taken me a week since NXT R-Evolution to write this and trust me when I tell you, I've been gasping for air this whole time.    

I'm not sure if there's a point to this story but I'm going to tell it again.

I've been wilfully caught up in the self-defeating quest to get to know myself for years. I've never expected anything beneficial to result from such a quest. I tend to evoke extremely polarised reactions from people I get to know in passing. Consequently, only those people who know me inside-out would honestly claim that I'm a person who's just "alright." It's not a coincidence that the description I've laid out above has no fewer than, title included, eleven references to me (make that twelve). I'm affectionately referred to as "Ego." I think that last statement might have given away a tad too much. Welcome Aboard.
