Summary: When the number one contender for the women’s championship gets a low-blow from Creative about her weight Baron takes it upon himself to show her how beautiful she really is.
Warnings:smut, body shaming
I slammed the wooden door behind me, the paper sign reading
‘Creative’ flapping at the force. I pulled my hoodie over my freshly curled
hair and purposefully walked down the hall quickly. Fresh tears pricking my
blue eyes and threatening to ruin the elaborate match makeup that the sold out
arena would never see. I passed by numerous stage hands and talent, keeping my
head down in order to make it to my locker room and leave in peace. But the
glee of giggles stopped me as I glanced over to see Eva Marie adjusting her new
ring gear in a mirror as she laughed with a few of the other Divas. She was preparing for my match, taking my
opportunity. I felt my fists clench. But how could I be mad at her? I let this happen.
I heard my name called and paused to glance over my
shoulder. My friend Becky sat cross legged on a stage crate concern painted on
her features. Next to her stood Baron who’s concern mirrored Becky’s. His shirt
stuck to the fresh layer of sweat that had accumulated on his body from his earlier
match and his dark hair was pulled into a bun on top of his head.
“Don’t ya have a match?” Becky asked. The tears intensified
and I blinked furiously glancing back at Eva.
“Not anymore” I mumbled lowly before tucking my head down
pushing on to my locker room.
When a wrestler loses after an amazing/difficult/important match and the winner celebrates quickly and then leaves. And then it’s just the wrestler that lost and the crowd. And the wrestler is hurting and sad. And they stand all alone in the ring and the audience just showers them with love and support and comfort and cheers. And it’s amazing.
Life always have been easier for you, you had everything you wanted, and got only the best, you’re pretty sure it’s because you’re the younger one, so your parents and siblings likes to prep you all around. That don’t made you a spoiled or rotten person, however, you’re not a wrestler or a CEO, you like to work with Creative when you get a chance, even if Shane had taught you some move when you’re younger, you prefer spend your time outside the rings, where it looks a lot less hurtful.
There are those days you’re just roll your eyes and walk away Stephanie and Shane when they start to fight over who is the best big sibling, and you wonder if they are the adults they claim to be, other times you’ll just hang out wiht your nephews and nieces, helping they with homework or playing games. You’d even spend time with your mother away from all wrestling stuff and going a bit involved into the politics. But then there’s what comes to be happening a lot lately, your dad dragging you along with him, just to be sure you’re safe.
Yes, there’s safety issues around you, for any reason there is some peoples that always go and threaten your family, but lately, they have been threatening you, and that really get under Vince skin.
You just sat in backstage watching the shows, sometimes just sat on Steph or Shane officer, but then you started to actually talk and get to know the superstars, and most of they are really nice, you’re not sure if this is because you’re a McMahon, but you kinda like have some of they around.
Some like Dean Ambrose, Roman Reigns and Seth Rollins.
Ahh, what can I say about Seth I haven’t already said? I adore him. He’s brilliant, he’s the reason I got back into wrestling a couple years back, he’s most of the reason I tune in every Monday and the occasional Sunday, he’s…*makes grand gesture* ma raison d’etre. Haha. He’s one of the best in the world today, I’ve said it before, I’ll say it a thousand times more. I really, really hope he gets to be Universal or WWE champ (again) sometime in the future, although I love him as tag champ with his wrestling soulmate Dean Ambrose! xD And it’s not just that he’s a great wrestler, I’ve always found his character fascinating, whether Heel or Face. He has the most heart-wrenching puppy eyes and the sweetest lil smile, but damn, doesn’t he play an incredible and wonderfully detestable bad guy? People say he’s a stale babyface but I don’t buy it - with the right storyline and a good heel to work against he’s brilliant, he showed that in his feud with Triple H.
I’m kinda rambling, but suffice it to say Seth Rollins is my absolute favorite (along with Kevin Owens) and probably always will be. He’s an amazing wrestler, and he really just seems like a cool guy, like someone it’d be fun to just talk about wrestling (and dogs! lol) with. I get the biggest, dumbest smile every time I see his stupid perfect face, and I hope to see him be the top guy in the company again, after he’s done being one half of the best tag team in the world and one-third of the best wrestling faction in the world!
Also he’s really, really pretty. Really…really pretty.
The UK tournament was a great success. And many great things came from it. One thing that wasn’t great that came from it was Pete Dunne. Okay, so he was a great wrestler and his character was probably the most developed of anyone but he himself, the man behind the character, the real Pete Dunne,
Is a fucking asshole.
There’s no way around it. He just is. He is pushy and judgmental, thinks he is entitled to everything and is probably the cockiest person in the entire WWE - and that’s saying something. How Trent and Tyler put up with him you have no idea.
You were actually excited when he joined NXT. It meant bringing in new blood and like you said he is a great wrestler but from the moment you met him, he has been the bane of your existence. It was probably because you weren’t falling all over him. When Regal was showing him along with Trent and Tyler, the rookies of the women’s locker - you know the people who weren’t or just made it to tv - flocked to talk to them.
You sat at your table trying to finish the level on an app that you were currently obsessed with not paying any attention until Regal brought them over.
“Y/n I’d like you to meet Trent, Tyler and Pete. Boys, this is y/n future NXT Women’s Champion she got a long career ahead of her” Regal smiled at you
“Future? So not current” Pete smirked at you “not good enough?”
“If I remember correctly it was Tyler that won the UK Championship” you smirked back at him and stood up. Tyler and Trent laughed as Pete’s face went dark “I’m going to beat Auska for that title soon don’t you worry. Nice to meet you guys” you smiled at Tyler and Trent before looking at Pete with the dirtiest look you could muster and walking away.
From that day on, whenever you saw Pete it was a war of words. Both of you wanted to have the last word but sometimes you just had to walk away unable to deal with his shit.
“Would you look at that y/n. Another win by yours truly” Pete smirked walking back through the curtain
“No one cares Peter” he hated when you called him Peter. It was the easiest way to piss him off with little to no effort needed. Pete went to reply but was cut off by Liv Morgan.
“Sorry to interrupt the usual game you guys play but I need to ask y/n a question that I need to know the answer to before your match” she said before turning to you “is it true that you and Roderick are a thing?”
“Where did you hear that?” You laughed
“It’s the current gossip of the locker room” Liv said “so are you?”
“Yeah are you?” Pete asked harshly
“No, he just gave me a lift back to my apartment because SOMEONE” you looked at Liv “left without time”
“Sure” Pete rolled his eyes. You frowned at him as your music it. You stared at Pete for a moment before running out to the ring.
“Jealous Pete?” Liv smirked
“That there is another man in y/n’s life”
“She said there isn’t” Pete said before quickly replying “whatever he can have the brat”
Pete sat in the male locker room, pulling the tape off his wrist, glaring at the TV watching your match. He only took his eyes off the TV when something that was being said pulled him out of the trance he was in.
“Roderick look at your girl go!” Someone shouted
“My girl?” Roderick asked
“Aren’t you dating y/n?” Someone asked
“Nope where did you here that?” He asked
“It’s the current gossip” Drew said pulling his knee pads on
“Nah, I just gave her a lift home. Besides, I thought she was dating Pete” Roderick shrugged
“Please” Pete scoffed
“Don’t act like you don’t find her attractive” Ohno said
“You spend enough time together to be a couple” Tyler said
“She fun to annoy. She gets so pissed so easily” Pete shrugged
“Sure mate” Trent clapped his shoulder.
NXT was done for another week and you were ready to go home. You were almost out of the building when you ran into Trent, Tyler and unfortunately Pete.
“Hey Trent, Tyler” you nodded at them. You just stared at Pete
“Like what you see sweetheart?” He smirked
“You wish Peter” you smirked back
“Do you want us to leave?” Tyler asked
“Yeah are you guys gonna fuck already?” Trent laughed
“He wishes” you scoffed, Pete smirked
“Just imagine all the dirty things I could do to you” Pete licked his lips
“I wanna do bad things to you too” you said
“Break your legs, Choke you to death, Push you off a building” you listed off
“All I’m hearing is that you said you want to do bad things to me so you place or mine?” Pete smirked
“I’m gonna kill you, you little shi-” you pushed past him and headed to your car. Fucking Pete Dunne.
Last year’s Top 5 wrestlers in Pro Wrestling Illustrated’s annual PWI 500 was very controversial as the writers selected Roman Reigns as the number 1 wrestler in the world with Kazuchika Okada at number 2 followed by Prince Devitt (aka Finn Balor) at number 3, AJ Styles at number 4, and Jay Lethal at number 5. Many fans, myself included felt that Okada was more deserving of being number 1 than Roman Reigns and none of us could understand why that happened and how someone with so much hate could be better than Okada.
Well, this year, all is right in the world of professional wrestling as the 2017 PWI 500 has revealed Kazuchika Okada as the number 1 wrestler in the world thus becoming the first Japanese wrestler in history to be number 1 and the first non-WWE wrestler to be number 1 since 2010. This year’s top 5 of the 500 sees a big shift into which 4 of these wrestlers are adored and respected by fans alike. Also if you look at two pictures above, you’ll notice that 3 of those top 5 wrestlers are featured twice. That is because both Jay Lethal and Prince Devitt took a fall outside of the top five while one of this year’s top 5 made a huge leap.
As noted, Kazuchika Okada is number 1 in the 2017 PWI 500 but he’s has two rivals in which both are in the top 5. At number two, is AJ Styles who was the other non-WWE wrestler to be number 1 back in 2010 and with this is now considered to be the top wrestler on WWE’s main roster. At number 3; moving up from the top 10 is Kevin Owens (who will probably also be calling this one a conspiracy since basically he has lost his mind after losing to AJ Styles into which he can’t have another shot at the WWE United States Championship as long as AJ is champion). He was number one last year but this year slips to number four is the result for Roman Reigns who still can’t do a decent promo. Lastly, making the top five and making a huge leap is Kenny Omega who last year wasn’t even in the top 20 and is now in the top five.
Down Below are the Top 100 of those PWI 500 wrestlers for 2017 and my comments surrounding most of them.
Kazuchika Okada (NJPW): Well deserving. Should’ve gotten it last year but didn’t. His matches have said it all. He is the absolute best
AJ Styles (SmackDown! Live): The Top wrestler in the WWE based on skills and the ability to wow the crowd. Despite his age, he’s still showing that he is the face that runs the place.
Kevin Owens (WWE): He’ll likely call this a conspiracy too. He also complained about Seth Rollins (who didn’t even crack the top 10 this year) being on the cover of WWE2K18. I like the wrestler but he complains too much and only thinks small.
Roman Reigns (RAW): After losing to Rollins at Money in the Bank 2016, went down the hill than came back up only to go back down again. His matches against Braun Strowman have been fantastic but needs a lot of improvement.
Kenny Omega (NJPW): Made a huge leap from last year’s PWI 500 and that is thanks to his in-ring ability and his promos. Plus the online series “Being the Elite” is a huge hit on YouTube.
Shinsuke Nakamura (NXT/SmackDown! Live): Though his English is limited, his actions always speaks louder. The way he carries himself is nothing of extraordinary.
Dean Ambrose (WWE): Nothing much but he’s slowly proving why he’s one of the best wrestlers today. On a plus side, with him in the top 10 for this year’s PWI 500, this could shows us that Rollins/Ambrose are the best team for 2017. Only four months to go to see if that happens.
Samoa Joe (NXT/RAW): Wow! One of the best who I believe is ready to become champion. The question though is when will that happen.
Bobby Roode (NXT): What a huge leap for the “It-Factor” after being way outside the top 10 last year. Though I not a fan of his promos, no one can deny his in-ring ability. It truly is one of the best.
The Miz (WWE): If it wasn’t for that promo on last year’s Talking Smack, then we wouldn’t talk about how much The Miz has improved since then. Becoming arguably one of the best talkers and one of the best wrestlers in professional wrestling.
Adrian Neville (RAW): He’s finally getting notice but it wasn’t ‘till now that he is actually starting to have some fun.
Tetsuya Naito (NJPW): One of the few who didn’t budge 1 muscle from this spot. I really expected him to be a top 10 wrestler but guess that’ll be saved for next year. What a shame for the 2-time (and reigning) G1 Climax winner.
Randy Orton (SmackDown! Live): Made a huge leap, large in part to him winning the Royal Rumble though his words towards the indies have made him a controversial figure as of late.
Adam Cole (ROH): A big leap for “Adam Cole Baybay” who became the 1st 3-time ROH Champion at the Tokyo Dome and one of my favorites due to his mic skills and his in-ring ability.
Bray Wyatt (WWE): Big leap for the “Eater of Worlds” but most of his matches and promos have suddenly lost steam. The crowd no longer wants to “Follow the Buzzards”.
Seth Rollins (RAW): Was in total shock to see him outside of the top 10 after being number 1 in 2015 and then managing to stay in the top 10 for 2016. He’s still having some of the best matches and the best has yet to come for the “Kingslayer”. The good news though is that his tag partner is a top 10 wrestler this year possibly making them the best team in this year’s PWI 500 despite only being together for a short while.
Christoper Daniels (ROH): What a big leap for this man who at the age of 46 became ROH Champion and like AJ, showed to everyone that age is just a number and that wrestling is about skills and not height.
Bobby Lashley (GFW): Since I don’t watch him, I can’t comment.
John Cena (SmackDown! Live): With his career winding down, this had to be expected but it was fun to see John Cena stay in the top 10 for most of his career.
KUSHIDA (ROH/NJPW): Another wrestler who made a huge leap and has become the official successor to Seth Rollins’s old finishing move “God’s Last Gift” which he calls the “Back to the Future”
Will Ospreay (NJPW/Indies): 1 year he’s cracking the top 20; this year, finds himself outside of it. Guessing Will needs to improve more.
Chris Jericho (WWE): His “List of Jericho” (Which I’m on by the way) has gotten so much attraction that fans want to see who make the list next. It is most likely that this is his last year wrestling full time and he made the most of it.
Katsuyori Shibata (NJPW): Though his career may be over, let’s not forget the year he had before Sakura Genesis including winning the New Japan Cup in a classic thriller against Fale.
Johnny Mundo (AAA): I know who he is but I haven’t watched him in six years. Glad he’s making progress as a wrestler.
Brock Lesnar (RAW): WWE really needs him to drop the Universal Championship to an full-time competitor ‘cause this ranking shows why.
Zack Sabre Jr. (NJPW/Indies): He can really hurt you in the matches. At least he is more respectful towards his opponents to the point he’ll show respect to them.
Eddie Edwards (GFW): Can’t say much except this guy is something.
Prince Devitt aka Finn Balor (RAW): The 1st-ever WWE Universal Champion took a big fall from the top 5 largely due in part to too much inactivity. May fall even further if his current storyline with Bray Wyatt doesn’t end right now as fans are totally bored with it.
Pete Dunne (Indies): Another big leap here going from being way outside the top 100 to now being of the top 30 wrestlers in the world. This one is truly deserving.
Jinder Mahal (SmackDown! Live): Someone who suffered losses is now getting a big push into which he is now WWE Champion. The craziest part is that he wasn’t even in the PWI 500 last year. Talk about how those last three months played out into him reaching the top 30.
Marty Scurll (ROH): I love his music and I love his skills. Plus, he’s another one who made a huge leap from being outside of the top 100 to making it into the top 40 at number 31.
Dolph Ziggler (SmackDown! Live): Moved up a bit but not much. Here’s to hoping he does well in the Indies when the time comes.
Cody Rhodes (NJPW/ROH/Indies): What a leap for the “American Nightmare” into which he’s still has the chance to produce more amazing matches.
Braun Strowman (RAW): Thought he would be a top 10 guy this year but at least he’s making progress. Let’s hope he becomes the next WWE Universal Champion so that we can see that belt ‘till year’s end.
TJP (RAW): Originally TJ Perkins. Not a great wrestler but he really is one of the best.
Ethan Carter III (GFW): Haven’t watched him in years so I can’t comment on him either
Alberto El Patron (GFW): Had a strong resurgence until his private issues got in the way.
Kyle O’Reilly (ROH/Indies): Dropped down a bit but hopefully can have the resurgence in NXT
Hiroshi Tanahashi (NJPW): Awesome wrestler who likes to showboat too much. But you have to love his air guitars, truly awesome
Nick Jackson (ROH/NJPW/Indies): My comments on him coming up next.
Sami Zayn (WWE): He’s great but has been greatly undervalued by WWE into which it’s time for him to go back to NXT.
Matt Jackson (ROH/NJPW/Indies): With Nick, one of the best tag teams in the world but they have competition since the only tag wrestler to make the top 10 this year is WWE’s Dean Ambrose. Also their show “Being the Elite” is the best. On another note, The Elite have an average raking of 29 for 2017 after last year’s average ranking was almost 40, which make them the second best staple/group in professional wrestling today right behind the former Shield brethren whose average ranking for 2017 is 9
Mark Haskins (Indies): Never watched him so can’t comment.
Rusev (WWE): Really taking a fall after being in the top 10 two years ago. It’s sad that one of the best wrestlers in the world has been demoted to the role of jobber.
Matt Hardy (GFW/ROH/Indies/RAW): With his brother Jeff, achieve the rare feat of holding the top 3 US promotions tag-titles in 1 year. He’s crazy but I like the guy
Ricochet (Lucha Underground/NJPW): Another big fall mostly because of a television deal. Expecting him to get back up and rise again.
Yamato (Dragon Gate): Haven’t watched him so I can’t comment
Hiromu Takahashi (ROH/NJPW): Huge leap for the “Time Bomb” who made a big statement at the Tokyo Dome earlier this year. Can’t wait to see him become champion again.
Baron Corbin (SmackDown! Live): Not a big leap for 2017′s Mr. Money in the Bank but still room for improvement including his attitude.
Tyler Bate (Indies): Wasn’t even ranked last year and now sees himself as a top 50 wrestler. Not bad for the first WWE UK Champion.
Jeff Hardy (GFW/ROH/Indies/RAW): With his brother Matt, tore the house down in their tag matches including the two against the Young Bucks at Supercard of Honor XI and against Dean Ambrose/Seth Rollins the night after SummerSlam. With Matt, they are passing the torch to the next generation of tag-team wrestlers.
Jay Lethal (ROH): Last year, he was in the top 5; this year, he finds himself now scratching to make the top 50. Shocking that it happened but it did. Have the feeling that this will make Silas Young happy who will be upset to learn he’s not a top 100 guy.
Bobby Fish (ROH): Another fall for him while his partner is still in the top 40.
Cesaro (RAW): Though one of the best, his status here shows us all who the best tag-team is in professional wrestling.
Moose (GFW): Heard about this guy. Haven’t watched him but I can say that he’s really good.
Rich Swann (RAW): Awesome wrestler into which I love his music.
Sheamus (RAW): Read about what I said about his tag partner, Cesaro.
Drew McIntyre (Indies/NXT): Made it to the top 10 via a tie last year and this year finds himself outside the top 50. Let’s hope he has a lengthy reign as NXT Champion so that he can crack the top 10 again.
Big E (WWE): Strong downfall for him but he’s still funny
Austin Aries (NXT/RAW): One of the best wrestlers in the world but never got the push he truly deserved in WWE.
Luke Harper (SmackDown! Live): Had gotten a huge push after betraying Bray Wyatt but hasn’t been seen in months. WWE is underestimating his potential.
Trevor Lee (GFW/Indies): Can’t say much but based on what I’ve read, he’s really good.
Hirooki Goto (NJPW): Had a resurgence that resulted in him being in the top 50 last year but toppled out. One of the best in the world but can’t really blossom like he should.
Brian Kendrick (RAW): Coming back to WWE has really helped “The Man with a Plan” to the point that he’s now feuding with the next generation of wrestling talent.
Pentagon El OM (AAA): Haven’t watch him so can’t comment
Katsuhiko Nakajima (NOAH): Whoa! Took more than half of the top 100 to find someone from Pro Wrestling Noah. This shows us all what the company has been through in the past year.
Tommaso Ciampa (NXT): This guy is special. It’s just too bad that his year ended with a torn ACL keeping him out until 2018.
Crazzy Steve (Indies): Can’t comment much except I can’t really stand this guy.
Kofi Kingston (WWE): One of the best in the world who’s also a record holder for Tag-Team gold. His 2009 feud with Randy Orton is still one of his best highlights in my opinion.
Luke Gallows (RAW): This is not good for the team that was once the best tag-team in the world. WWE really has ruined both him and Anderson.
Bad Luck Fale (NJPW): Look who took a huge leap and this one is well deserved. One of the best on the mic and 1 that strikes fear in any ring announcer around the world.
Xavier Woods (WWE): Moved down alot as well. But, he’s the best at hosting game shows including his UpUpDownDown which I saw once and it was funny.
Karl Anderson (RAW): The “Machine Gun” has gone from being one of the best to being nothing in the year since being in WWE.
Tomohiro Ishii (NJPW): Went down alot as well but had some of the best matches against both Kenny Omega and Tetsuya Naito.
Davey Richards (GFW): Is now pursuing a doctor’s career.
Michael Elgin (NJPW/Indies): Took a huge fall as well. This mostly is due to his injury but who knows.
Abyss (GFW): Surprised he’s still in the business
Andrew Everett (Indies): Plan to watch him real soon since I’m subscribe to CWF-Mid Atlantic’s YouTube channel
Big Show (RAW): Still one of the best in the word but age is coming into him based on him not being used much.
Johnny Gargano (NXT/Indies): Great Individual wrestler who I can see getting a huge push sometime in the future.
Jay Briscoe (ROH): Great wrestler who took a huge fall as well.
Minoru Suzuki (NJPW): Glad this guy’s not in the top 10. He scares me more than Bray Wyatt and that is saying a lot.
Jey Uso (SmackDown! Live): For someone who claims their team is better sure didn’t gain the attention of the PWI writers who believe that the teams of Rollins/Ambrose, The Young Bucks, The Hardy Boyz, Cesaro/Sheamus, and The New Day are better than them based on these rankings alone.
Rocky Romero (NJPW): Great wrestler who we’ll see try to leave his mark in singles competition as RPG Vice says goodbye.
Frankie Kazarian (ROH): One of my favorites but hasn’t really gotten the push he truly deserves and at this stage, most likely doesn’t need it.
Jimmy Uso (SmackDown! Live): What I said about Jey is the same thing I say about Jimmy.
Go Shiozaki (NOAH): Awesome wrestler. Just wished I would watch him some more.
Hijo Del Texano (AAA): Haven’t watch him so can’t comment.
Roderick Strong (NXT): Took a very strong fall outside the top 20 but hoping to see him have a resurgence leading into 2018.
Sonjay Dutt (GFW): Heard this guy’s a history maker. Been a long time since I’ve watched him but he’s really good.
Trent? Baretta (NJPW/PWG): One of the best wrestlers in the world today. Can’t wait to see how good he does in the heavyweight division.
Eric Young (NXT): Hadn’t had the year he wanted but was able to leave his mark through chaos.
Maximo Sexy (CMLL): Can’t comment due to not watching him much.
Big Cass (RAW): Strong leap for the 7-footer who may see himself outside the top 100 next year since he’ll be sideline until 2018 with a torn ACL injury.
Magnus (GFW/Indies): Great wrestler but really needs to get better and quick.
Dalton Castle (ROH): Great wrestler with one of the best entrances in the world. Can’t wait to see him win his first world championship.
Mark Briscoe (ROH): Can’t comment more since I really can’t tell the two brothers apart at all.
Marco Corleone (CMLL): Haven’t watched him but it’s awesome to see him the top 100 after not being listed last year.
Timothy Thatcher (Indies): First time I’ve ever heard of this guy so I can’t say much about him right now.
Keith Lee (ROH): My uncle is apparently a huge fan of this guy. Honestly, I haven’t watched him yet but if he’s good then I’ll take their word for it.
So there, you have it. Those are the top 100 wrestlers for the PWI 500 and stay tuned here for matches of those top five wrestlers courtesy of dailymotion’s various users.

gerald and betty ford were fashion models…they even posed on the cover of cosmopolitan
All these follow the theme that something was said about their s/o, I hope that’s okay with you!
Osomatsu: His first response to hearing something he doesn’t like is to start throwing punches, so it isn’t surprising he got into a fight. He’d be pretty roughed up, but it’s a pretty equal share if you look at the other person. He’d still wear that shit-eating grin while his s/o patches him up. He loves the attention from them and will still try to be snarky, “Heh..yeah, I couldn’t just let that slide though..ow! That shit burns!”
Karamatsu: He isn’t a violent person, but if something his said about his s/o, all bets are off. He’d try to talk things out for about five seconds before he lost his temper. He takes quite a bit of damage, but surprisingly holds his own pretty well. He’d try to reassure his s/o that everything’s okay and that he’s fine, even though he does whine a bit about the pain. “Ow…No, honey I assure you i’m f-innee..hnn…ow..ow..ow..”
Choromatsu: He’d try to talk things out, he really would, but once things got too far he’ll flatten somebody if he deems fit When he fights he gets an amazing tolerance to pain, it’s almost scary. It’s just because of how angry he is though. He’d be telling his s/o that he’s fine the entire time they patch him up, still a little numb from his earlier anger. “Yes (Y/n), i’m okay, I promise…huh? I didn’t realize I lost that much blood…is that mine or their’s?”
Ichimatsu: He hates calling attention to himself, he prefers to stay in the background if he can, so fights aren’t a thing he’ll call up on his own. He doesn’t until someone starts talking about someone he cares about at least, then the claws come out. He’s trying to avoid his s/o’s attempts to patch him up at any cost, he doesn’t want them to worry about him. And he hates hydrogen peroxide/rubbing alcohol. “I said i’m fine!…Seriously get that crap away from me…No! It’ll burn!”
Jyushimatsu: He’s always ready for physical activity, and he’s a great wrestler, so fighting is his strong-point. It doesn’t take much to piss him off when it comes to his s/o though, one wrong word and they’re dead. Seriously someone has to pull him off them. He’s kicking his feet happily and humming as his s/o patches him up, wincing slightly at the pain but nothing more than that. “I’m okay! Really, I had fun beating that guy! People like them should just die, you know?”
Todomatsu: He’s not a fighter, he never has been. He’s a bit sensitive and doesn’t know how to throw a punch to save his life. He’d give it his best shot though, if it meant protecting his s/o’s honor. He ends up crying as his s/o patches him up, sniffing weakly and leaning into their loving touches. “Hmm…Owie..it hurts (Y/n)…I know, i’m sorry! Please baby me more..”
I’m to the point now where I don’t care if people like Roman or not. He’s healthy (mostly). He’s got a beautiful, supportive family. He’s selling more merch than anyone else (not including Cena since he’s not a full time superstar). He’s making BANK. He’s a great wrestler. He’s a safe worker. He’s intelligent and fine as fuck. And he’s got a future in Hollywood if he wants to go that route.
Folks are gonna boo him regardless of who his opponent is. The rules that apply to him will never apply to anyone else.
Like… folks on here can write essays about how much he sucks and all I can do is roll my eyes. It used to really bother me, but since it doesn’t seem to bother Roman, idgaf. There’s always gonna be hate in his tag. Someone is always gonna be in my inbox telling me he’s trash. You’ve got a right to your opinion. As long as you’re not spreading hate (actual hate, not just dislike) or death threats to his wife and kids, we’re fine. If you’re on some hateful shit, it’s hella easy to just block. Like my mom says: Sometimes, you’ve gotta chuck it in the fuck it bucket and move on.
Note: I got a few messages about tagging and purposely misspelling names so they don’t appear in tags. I tend to only tag Roman posts or wrestling news posts, i.e, I don’t tag Randy posts or whoever else I don’t like. I’m not doing any of that misspelling names shit, so just scroll on past if you don’t like what I’ve got to say.
New rule: you can tell me your opinion if you want. But it’s on me to respond to it or ignore it. Simple.
I love Pete Dunne, not only is he incredibly good looking but he's also an amazing wrestler with heaps of talent. I'm so proud of him and everything he's accomplished and I see only good things for him in the future but i'm terrified of him going to the WWE. More spotlight and more fans would be amazing for his brand and do wonderful things for him but I've seen so, so many great wrestlers get botched and used by the WWE Creative team. I already don't like how they've changed his character, he's still the 'Bruiserweight', but they left no room for his goofy antics with BSS. On that note- why did they have to split up British Strong Style? I understand they needed a rivalry for the UK Championship but why not Mandrews and Dunne as apposed to Tyler? It would make more sense for long standing fans and BSS would have been an amazing stable for the NXT brand. What about Trent? Nobody really pays much attention to him and I don't know why? He's a great wrestler and he has a great gimmick. It's because he's older and not as cute as Tyler or Pete? Is WWE done with him or is he going to the roster with Tyler and Pete? Are Tyler and Pete even going to the roster at all? I would rather see Pete happy and in the indies than washed up on a big brand. I have a lot of anxiety about my boys.
Summarized: Astrid is a rookie on the NXT roster. Her mentor, William Regal, suggests that she start off the process of figuring out her character and growing an audience by being a manager or valet. It’s not her ideal situation, but when the only two volunteers who step up are Adam Cole, her ex three times removed and Pete Dunne / BSS, she chooses the lesser evil of the two.. Problem.. Pete Dunne and Astrid do not get along at all. Secondary problem.. Both are totally head over heels for each other; unwilling to admit it. But will proximity breed familiarity and longing or resentment?
TL;DR: If you’ve seen movies like 10 Things I Hate About You or any movie where boy and girl do not get along at first then you pretty much know what this is about.
Seth was seemingly always stressed out. He was stressed because he never truly got the belt back when he came back from injury and now he wasn’t even slated to get a title match for a while. It bothered him a lot. So he was always pacing around, trying to plan out his next move.
When he had his fatal five way to determine the next number one contender, he was even more stressed than usual. He spent the whole time before his match freaking out in his locker room, pacing the floor. And when a stagehand came to tell him it was his time, his eyes got wide.
“We don’t have more time?” he begged, hair a mess.
“Sorry, sir. We don’t.” The stagehand seemed apologetic as he walked off, leaving Seth with me.
“Hey, hey,” I said, grabbing his face in my hands to keep him from freaking out. “You’ve got this, okay? You’re a great wrestler, you always have been. You can do this. Plus, you got a cute butt. And nobody can beat having that.”
That got a smile from him, and he nodded his head, encouraged. “I got this,” he muttered to himself as he walked away. You heard him add, “and a cute butt” right as the door closed behind him.
