Hi! If you're new to Cageside Seats, welcome to the best wrestling community in the galaxy. You could have chosen many other wrestling communities (and you probably have), but you picked this one, and we appreciate that. I think it's time you and I get to know each other a little better. I mean, since you're gonna be here for a while, I hope.
The way I plan to keep you around (aside from the feature I do every day--it's This Date in Pro Wrestling History) is the Cageside Seats 30 Day Challenge.
Starting today, every day for the next month, I will ask you a wrestling-related question, and you answer it. There's no wrong answer; the only rules are you (a) answer honestly, and (b) respect the answers of other people. If you can do these two things, I think we'll get along just fine.
Now that we have our rules, here's today's question.
Why do you like wrestling?
I mean, you're on this here site dedicated to wrestling, so you like wrestling on some level, right? To break the ice, I'll answer first.
Well, it's one of those things I fell in love with as a kid. Watching larger than life men do incredible feats of strength caught my eye as a little Eddie Mac. As I grew older, larger than life personalities doing incredible things with their bodies caught my eye as a young adult Eddie Mac.
I also got invested in the stories of many of my favorites, and here's the greatest thing--at least for me--about wrestling. You can stop watching for a few weeks at a time, jump back in, and not be completely lost. I'm not sure there are a lot of shows you can say that about. Plus people doing incredible things with their bodies always catches my eye. And in the words of Max Landis, who did this awesome short called Wrestling Isn't Wrestling (and you should all watch it, like right now), yeah, a lot of pro wrestling sucks. But when it's good, it's fucking great. And in the words of Eddie Mac, when it's great, it's incredible.
Ok, your turn. Why do you like wrestling?
