Instead of doing a traditional "thank the people on the forums" thread. I'm going to dedicated my 10,000 post to the wrestlers/managers who have kept my love for wrestling going strong the past 23 years even during the times like these where I should just stop watching.

And also to guys like Mick Foley, Bret Hart, The Road Warriors, The Midnight Express, The Rock N' Roll Express, Scott Hall, Jake Roberts, Ted DiBiase, The Undertaker, The British Bulldogs, Jim Cornette, Jimmy Snuka, Tito Santana, Triple H, Mr. Perfect, Rick Rude, Greg Valentine, Chris Jericho, Eddie Guerrero, Kurt Angle, and other guys who I've enjoyed watching over the years.

These are some of the guys that have made wrestling worth watching for me over the years. Sure, some of them never got the championship reigns they deserved. However, championships to me, aren't that important in the end. If you die and fans remember you 20 years later, then you've made an impact in the World of wrestling.

Look at Jimmy Snuka, never held a WWE/F title, but he will go down as one of the most remembered wrestlers of all time. He has got two highlights that is burnt into the image of every single fan's head.

Jake Roberts, never held a WWE/F title, but will be remembered as one of the greatest in-ring performers of all time. And he wasn't even a technical wrestler like Bret Hart! He could get you excitied for a match without even having to do a single move. He was that good. Granted, he's had a LOT of personal problems over the years. The again, who hasn't known someone who has some kind of problem? Roberts is a human being and us humans aren't exactly the most perfect creature.

While we may bitch about John Cena being stale and the WWE having a writing team consisting of brain-dead morons. Or that Chris Jericho was totally misused in the WWE. Sometimes we just have to take a step back and examine the positives, it doesn't have to be storyline wise. It can be just guys who are busting their ass to TRY to put on a good show.

Guys like Carlito, CM Punk, Shelton Benjamin, Gregory Helms, Edge, London and Kendrick, and *gasp* John Cena. Guys like these go out there and DO THEIR JOB. These guys are guys who really try to give the fans all that they have (yes, even Cena). You can't blame them that the writers are so pathetic that they can't do anything worthwhile with the talent they have.

So next time we want to throw our remotes at the TV whenever Cena makes a joke about someone being homosexual or when Carlito gets stuck with Torrie Wilson. Think about the guys who have made wrestling worthwhile for you. Think about the times Chris Jericho, HBK, Kurt Angle, Booker T, The Undertaker, Triple H, John Cena, etc have entertained you.

LOL. Yeah, sure. I'd come in here and fuck up his post. KooSh knows I think he rocks. I mean, I did it to your precious TNA, so obviously, I'm going to do it EVERYWHERE BAH GAWD CONSPIRACY.

Go bawl about someone making jokes in discussion or something.
