Just read a very interesting piece of news indeed – – something way more interesting than all the bickering currently going over in Capitol Hill and of course the White House, “Trump VS Governor”, and so forth.

Saw that the WWF – ah, sorry, WWE – WWF was how it USED To be known back in the day has just got permission to stage live events again presumably in front of an audience … and also been classified as an “essential service”.

Now, my thoughts are mixed on this ,but I fully support the decision, but NOT for reasons you might think.

Most of the folks in the WWE are anything but truly fit. “Roid crazed monsters” is what I’d call ‘em – – and yet – – these performers do a hard job, my friend. A TOUGH job indeed, and the movie “The Wrestler” (starring Mickey Rourke as the down on his luck “Randy Orton” – – a must watch, by the way) is a perfect example of what these guys put themselves through for their fans – on a nightly basis almost … NOT easy to say the least.

And I loved watching the WWE when growing up, hehe. The Attitude Era as it were. Kane. The Undertaker. “Degeneration” X – – and of course my all time favorite … the TOUGHEST S.O.B. on the planet – Stone Cold Steve Austin.

The “Hitman” Bret Hart. The Rock (I’m not a huge fan, but I love some of his movies, hehe) – and so forth!

Anyway, point of me saying this?

Well, first off all, I’d never in my wildest dream think of roid crazed monster throwing each other about a squared circle as being essential to anything except entertainment.

But come to think of it, is SPORTS essential at all?

When it comes right down to it, is there much difference (other than the ROID factor) between a group of grown men chasing a ball around a field (in it’s various shapes, forms and guises) – and the WWE?

Entertainment is what it all boils down to, and I bet you anything ole Vince Mc Mahon had MORE than something to do with this decision (taken in Florida apparently – so it’s a state level decision).

Vince Mc Mahon is someone I admire greatly – – a TRUE example of a rags to RICHES entrpeneur, and how.

Starting off from humble beginnings that most of us would never imagine possible for the CEO of the world’s largest sports entertainment company he made wrestling into the show biz it is TODAY – and all credit to him for doing that!

And in terms of it being classified as essential services, well, what people are MORE in need of than anything else right now – other than workouts (the right kind) is ENTERTAINMENT.

And while I’m not saying the WWE is for everyone, it provides entertainment – GALORE!

And a load of chuckles as well – – at least it did during the Attitude Era … and if it gets people LAUGHING – and smiling again – hey, I think it’s worth it!

They’ve been having sports events all over the world (or they WERE, at least, last month or so towards the start) in EMPTY stadiums – – something I thought was nigh ridiculous, and I bet you anything most players would say the same thing.

In fact an Aussie cricketer said it was eerie – he could actually hear his own voice echo in the stands, and for ONCE he could hear his teammates speaking, which isn’t possible in the normal din and babel of cricket, hehe.

What would sport be without spectators anyway??

And on that note, it’s adios for now. More power to Vince for getting the WWE to be classified as “essential” – – hey, whatever works – and more power to Trump for being the one leader in the world that seems to be desperately trying to get a stalled economy back on it’s feet.

The fact is, my friends – when the U.S. sneezes the world coughs. When the U.S. does well, in general, the rest of the civilized world (and no, a certain country is NOT included, hehe) does as well.

That isn’t Trump trumpeting or “blindly supporting a country” – ‘tis me stating a fact – much like the other fact which is oft – ignored – that being that at the end of the day, it’s a darn virus – much like the flu (except with higher mortality rates) and a) MOST people that got it have recovered and b) much like the flu, its probably going to be around a while, if not forever in some shape, form or manner!

And so it goes. Im out for now – will be back soon!
