THE OTHER SIDE OF THE PICKET FENCE
My name is Elmer Jortikka
And I'm newest guest coloum writer here at slash wrestling. For my first column I decided to write how I see wrestling, and tell you (readers if any) why. I'm Finnish (Finland is in Europe) and I think that might give me a "unique" point of view, although smarks are all over the world the same. But at least I'm a European smark.
So what wrestling is to me:
Entertainment at the best, I love it. (in a non-prison movie type of way) I was always a huge ECW mark, so I don't like the WWF's "young & restless" touch. btw backyard wrestling is for idiots(read really stupid hicks).
So what kind of wrestling I like:
Everything that gets a good reaction out of me. I don't count boring as a good reaction.
So what gets a good reaction:
Hell in the Cell, TLC, Benoit vs. Jericho Ironman, RVD & Sabu vs. The Eliminators, Yosihiro Tajiri, good workers, guys who give always 110% just for the fans. etc..
So what gets boring reaction:
Hulk Hogan syndrome.
So who's my favorite wrestlers:
Then there are still Benoit, Jericho, Triple H, E&C, Hall, RVD and so many others.
So who don't I like?
Hogan, Bagwell, Gunn, Nash, Sid etc..
So already ending?
I hope you all know now where I'm coming from. I come from a place where wrestling is a joke, I come from a place where a people don't respect the guys, I come from a place where people don't watch wrestling, because it's "fake".
I'll try to write a new column every week.
Vetäkää vittu päähänne.
PS. If someone has any ECW videos from years 1995-1998 or WWF footage from 1989-1996, and you would want to practice some charity, I would be more than interested. Mail.
