Bryan Danielson’s new blog:
“First off, Iâ€™d like to thank everyone who came out to this weekendâ€™s EVOLVE and Dragon Gate USA shows. I talked to lots of people who made the journey out to their very first independent wrestling shows and they all said they had a blast, even though both buildings were about ten zillion degrees Celsius. But it was a great weekend of wrestling, and it seemed like despite the heat everybody had a great time. If there is one thing I will miss most about WWE, it will be the air conditioned buildings… and showers. On Saturday night in Philly I wrestled for close to 30 minutes and I felt like I sweated out 15 pounds. If only I could look that lean all the time, then I could really be a part of TJPâ€™s Abs Crew. Alas, that day will probably never come.
This weekend Iâ€™ll be in Reseda, CA on Friday for Pro Wrestling Guerrilla (PWG) and in Robins, GA on Saturday for Rampage Pro Wrestling (RPW). If youâ€™ve never seen PWG before, I suggest you check it out as its some of the funnest wrestling Iâ€™ve ever been a part of. Its often wacky and irreverent, but its carved itself a great niche in the pro wrestling world. People come up to me all the time and talk to me about an interview I did there (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FSh2s_lmthI), and I even heard people â€œbuzzingâ€ for me at WWE shows. It always makes me smile, no matter how mean Iâ€™m trying to be. Iâ€™ll be wrestling my old pal Roderick Strong, who may actually cave my chest in with his chops. Roddy is one of the main contributors to the many scars I have on my chest, and I will be bringing LOTS of Neosporin. Iâ€™m also hoping the legendary Lloyd Boner will be able to do some commentating. Saturday will be my first show for RPW and Iâ€™m pretty excited because I havenâ€™t wrestled in Georgia since 2001. Iâ€™ll also get to meet up with my old pals Jimmy Rave and Sal Rinauro, who are hilarious. If you are near either of these shows, I welcome you to come check them out. Hopefully it wonâ€™t be as hot as last weekend!
And finally, the Teddy Bear T-shirt design contest has come to a close. People sent in sooooo many awesome designs, and now Iâ€™m in the painstaking process of trying to select one. Its going to come down which design actually looks best on a shirt. I was thinking of having a poll so people could vote on it, but I fail at technology and the thought of doing it intimidated me. Yes, I know, that ranks very low on the manliness meter. Either way Iâ€™ll post some of the art on the website soon, as so many of the people who follow wrestling are extremely talented. Thatâ€™s all for this week and I hope to see some of you at the shows!
P.S. Feel free to send pictures from the shows to firstname.lastname@example.org. Iâ€™ll try to get them posted on the website! “
