Let’s Say Nice Things About... The Thing You Hate Most in Wrestling Right Now

Grumpy Cat

In an effort to bring some positivity to professional wrestling—and the world for that matter—Cageside Seats and its community will say nice things about people and things in wrestling every single day throughout 2017.

Remember, only positive comments allowed here. Negativity will not be tolerated, and that includes back-handed compliments and troll comments. Any comments that are not in the spirit of this feature will be flagged, deleted, and posters of said comments may be subjected to a ban.

I wasn’t aware of this until I woke up this morning, but today is National Say Something Nice Day. Yup, it’s a real thing. The story behind it:

The purpose of this holiday is to counteract bullying and the lack of civility and common courtesy that is growing among people in today’s world. Hopefully, the practice of saying something nice today will continue onto all tomorrows.

Mayor Keith Summey of North Charleston, South Carolina proclaimed June 1 as Say Something Nice Day in 2006 in recognition of the communication efforts of specialist Dr. Mitch Carnell founder of the day. Carnell is also the author of Say Something Nice: Be a Lifter at Work. The South Baptist Convention and the Charleston-Atlantic Presbytery joined with Carnell to establish the day.

I didn’t think there needed to be such a day since, you know, common sense and all, but considering the culture of the world, maybe we do.

So, instead of focusing on one particular person or thing, today we’ll open it up. Take the thing you hate the most in wrestling right now, whatever it may be, and try to say something nice about it. The rules above still very much apply.

I’ll start. For me, it’s RAW. You don’t get to 1,200 episodes (and counting) by accident or dumb luck. You have to hit a groove somewhere along the way and ride that groove. When RAW finds that groove again (and I’m sure they will), the show will be amazing. And when RAW is better, WWE as a whole is better.

Plus, the 90-minute supercut is a godsend for those that have Hulu. The 60-minute recap does need to come back though.

Ok, your turn. Say something nice about the thing you hate most in wrestling right now.

Got a suggestion for a future “Let’s Say Nice Things About...”? Hit me up on the Twitter gimmick @notoriouseddie. I may not always respond, but I promise I will read it.
