*Your POV*

Finally, I thought as I stood in front of the doors to the performance centre of my long awaited destiny; the WWE For a large majority of my wrestling career I had wrestled for a famous; or should I say - infamous independent circuit. Combat Zone Wrestling, or CZW. Over the many years I had been their resident crazy woman I had seen many now WWE superstars come and go, regarding the likes of: Kevin Owens, Luke Harper, Sami Zayn and my then partner in crime and best friend Jon Moxley - better known now as Dean Ambrose. You see Mox and I were always regarded as CZW’s very favourite unstable, sadistic and crazy couple - although we were never together. He was much more like my older brother, always looking out for me and pulling me out of whatever shit I had gotten myself into. When he left to join the WWE - or FCW as it was at the time and i remained CZW’s crazy lady we had lost touch, most likely due to the hectic schedule he had unknowingly catapulted himself into. But today I got to surprise him and I just couldn’t wait. I took in a big breath as I pushed the heavy door ready to be reunited with my oldest and bestest friend - you see Triple H had arranged for Dean to train with a newbie, except he didn’t tell him that it was me. Boy was he in for one hell of a surprise.

From right across the gym I noticed his muscular frame and signature shaggy hair yet he was standing next to my ultimate man crush - the 6'3, Samoan hunk; Roman Reigns. I could feel a crimson blush already rising on my cheeks and my knees go weak. God I was fan girling like some school girl - you’re a grown ass woman. Pull yourself together woman i scolded myself mentally. I looked back up at the two men and noticed Dean had moved slightly away from Roman - there was my perfect opportunity. I gently placed my bag on the floor and ran towards him jumping on his back, smothering in some sort of bear hug.

“MOXXXXXXXX” I screamed loudly as I hung off of his muscular frame giggling profusely. I felt him tense up in fear, as if he thought some crazy fangirl had found him - but I smirked knowing that he’d recognised my distinct voice and the greeting that was always given during our CZW days. He chuckled reaching behind him to pull me down in front of him - as i saw Roman looking on with a some what amused look.

“Y/N! What the fuck are you doing here, ya crazy bitch?!” Dean questioned enthusiastically pulling me in for a hug.

“Er I am the newbie, dumbass” I shoved his shoulder and flipped my hair in his face. “I finally made it” I smiled up at the brotherly like figure in my life.

“I’m fucking glad ya did kid” he spoke gruffly as he ruffled my hair. I slapped his hands away and tutted at him.

“One, I am not a kid! Two, you fully just fucked up my hair” I feigned annoyance which ultimately just ended up in giggles. My eyes averted away from Dean’s baby blues and were immediately drawn to the chocolate brown eyes of the Samoan hunk who was standing just to the left of me and Dean. I blushed a light shade of pink as I saw him give me a wink. Dean’s rough voice interrupted the impromptu stare off between Roman and I.

“You’ll always be a kid in my eyes” he spoke; once again messing my hair up as I rolled my eyes at my best friend. “Oh shit, I should introduce you two shouldn’t I?” he chuckled. “Roman this is Y/N, Y/N this is Roman” I smiled and craned my next to look up at the god-like human being standing in front of me. God Y/N stop acting like a school girl around him I once again scolded myself.

“Nice to meet you Y/N, I’ve heard a lot of things about your from my boy” his silky smooth voice spoke; effectively turning turning my legs to jelly. He offered his arms out for a hug which I accepted. God he smelt so good. Just as Roman and I pulled away from the hug someones phone bleeped, I turned round to see Dean shooting and annoyed glance at the phone.

“Ugh Sorry Y/N I have to go, Renee just got here and she needs help with Blue - aye Ro give her my number? See ya later kid” he gave me a quick kiss on the cheek before hurriedly leaving the training centre. I once again rolled my eyes at the nickname.

“Guess it’s just us then Babygirl” Roman spoke as he scribbled Dean’s number on a piece of paper before handing me it. The still present crimson smattering upon my cheeks turned a few shades deeper as I registered the new, much more favourable nickname from Roman. I took the bit of paper from his hands and sparks flew through me as our hands made the tiniest slither of contact. “

Thank you, and yeah it is. We may as well do something productive” i laughed going towards my gym bag; that was until Roman’s voice stopped me.

“Hey Y/N, would you uh maybe be interested in going to lunch with me” He spoke nervously rubbing the back of his neck - this time it being his time to blush. I looked up at him and smirked as he bit his lip apprehensively.

“Yeah I would really like that” I spoke shyly, zipping my gym back back up and turning to face him. I saw that all signs of hesitance had been washed away from his features.

“I know a great restaurant about five minutes away” he offered, taking my gym bag from your small hands and leading you out of the door; a hand placed gently on the small of my back. What a gentleman he is.

“Sounds perfect” i smiled sweetly. As we were walking my mind wandered to it’s own thoughts; What a day! I got back in touch with my best friend and now! Now I’m on an unofficial date with The Guy - Roman Reigns. That is what I would call a good day.

Ooh easy with the tongue son, try to listen carefully
What you seen’s scary but nothing can c o m p a r e to me
I could show you things that paint all your dreams haunted
Or I could make you s c r e a m if I wanted
Or I can be the bee in your bonnet, your best-friend forever
Two peas in a pod flocking like birds of a feather

Something that confuses me: fans that have their faves because they’re an “indy darling”.

Now, before someone misunderstands me, this is not about the wrestlers themselves. This is about the fans that pick a person to back because they were an indy guy and had to make the uphill climb and all that jazz, then act like they’re superior wrestling fans for it.

Because… Pretty sure that describes more guys than it doesn’t in the WWE.

The majority of wrestlers in the WWE have at least some history in independent wrestling. As a matter of fact, I would say that it’s easier to name WWE guys that don’t have an independent wrestling history than those that do.

Like, all six of my top male wrestlers have non-WWE wrestling history–the Undertaker, Kane, Viktor, Konnor, Sheamus, and Cesaro. However, the only one of those six that gets any particular notice for his indy history is Cesaro. No one gives a darn about the indy careers of the rest of that list. (The only non-Kane gimmick anyone cares to remember of Glenn Jacob’s is the dentist gimmick and that was with the WWE.)

Wrestlers having an independent background in the WWE isn’t all too special. Not in this climate. Usually, most of the “indy darlings” are guys who were popular on the indy circuit. Usually of a certain area that gets lots of exposure.

TL;DR, the point I’m really trying to make is to like someone because you like them and not because you think you somehow get a “better wrestling fan” badge because of it. You’re not a better or worse wrestling fan because of which wrestler you like or what their career history is, so don’t act like it.

Jon. Fucking. Moxley...

So I just went on Youtube to watch some of Dean Ambrose’s Independent Wrestling Circuit matches when he was under the name Jon Moxley… 3 things that made me go wtf 1. He had pink hair at one point 2. Independent Wrestling Circuit matches can get pretty violent, I’m talking blood EVERYWHERE violent 3. Holy shit did he look like a hot as hell punk rock kid While watching those I was also thinking “someone needs to put a lea- oh wait…”

Brian Myers Vs. Cliff Compton
AIW I Choo-Choo-Choose You!
[February 20th, 2015]

Without looking at the stats, this seems like a fairly typical independent wrestling match. However, what’s going down here is a match between two former WWE Tag Team Champions, and this fact is not lost in Brian Myers (formerly at this point and currently known as Curt Hawkins). Prior to the bout, Myers challenges Cliff Compton (known in the WWE as Domino) to make this match interesting, by allowing the victory to determine which of the two is the best SmackDown tag team champion of all-time. Is it ridiculous? Yes. But that’s okay! Wrestling can be fun, and this match certainly is. For an added adventure, take a shot every time there’s an ode to SmackDown.

Mall AU prompts for your OTP

I work retail in a shopping mall, so I was thinking these up the other day:

  • Person A is a cashier and Person B keeps leaving items at the store/ buying + returning purchases as an excuse to see person A
  • Person A works at the front of a store, and Person B works at the front of the store directly across from it [they always smile and wave at each other while working]
  • Person A and B work together, but there is a no dating policy for employees, so they each independently wrestle with quitting to be with the other one [or trying to get the other one fired or hiding their relationship from their boss]
  • Person A always goes to the Snack Shack/ Food Court where Person B works on during Person A’s breaks from work, and Person B quickly picks up on “the usual” to make the most of their short time together every day
  • Person A is in front of Person B in line, and Person B notices that Person A is about to buy their favorite book/movie (possible: they exchange numbers to discuss the book/movie after person A finishes it)
  • Person A and Person B are both supposed to hand out fliers for rival stores. They befriend each other after Person A hands Person B a flier for their store, and Person B returns the favor [with their number written on the flier]

Bryan Danielson Award (Best Technical Wrestler)

Recently retired WWE Superstar Daniel Bryan (Bryan Danielson) was given the title of Best Technical Wrestler of the Year in the Wrestling Observer Newsletter from 2005 until 2013, and is considered to be the best technical wrestler of the decade.With 8 consecutive years of earning that title (only to lose it due to inactivity), the Wrestling Observer Newsletter has renamed the Best Technical Wrestler Award to the Bryan Danielson Award in honor of his spectacular career.


In addition to complaining about pro wrestling, I sometimes participate in the sport. I’ve been an extremely part-time referee on various independent wrestling shows since 2007, making a grand total of one month’s rent in the process. But I don’t do it for the money, or for any hopes of full-time employment (especially after all the mean things I said about the senile old walkingfart who owns WWE). I do it for the experience – and goddamn is indie wrestling ever an experience.
