Return of Vince McMahon and Thanksgiving for Wrestling

Hi guys,

Just as a note - we haven't broken promises and disappeared; it was actually a pretty quiet week wrestling-wise, and then come this weekend when we'd usually be up to discussing the product, Ari managed to get sick in such a manner that included losing his voice; it's been a busy, sloggy weekend with Ari and the kids being sick by turns and me trying to step up as I can to take care of them.

That said - tonight's made for an interesting Raw with the return to the canvas of Vince McMahon, more buildup towards Hell in a Cell, further progress in the #1  contenders' tag team title tournament, and much more that we will discuss later this week. For this moment it's a bit late and mostly I want to take the opportunity to wish my Canadian readers a Happy Thanksgiving, and to share what I'm thankful for in the world of wrestling (personal thanks can be found on my personal blog,

  • I'm thankful for all the 'workers' - the hard workers like John Cena, the talented workers like CM Punk and Daniel Bryan, the amusing workers like Santino Marella, and all those who are maybe green and have a lot to learn but are trying damn hard in an unforgiving field.
  • I am thankful for wrestling fans - both the supportive and the disenchanted - for helping this product be what it can be, and being so much fun to share this damn crazy ride with.
  • I am thankful for having married a fellow wrestling fan.
  • I am thankful I got to go to Wrestlemania this year.
  • I am thankful WWE tries - from providing substance abuse rehab for anyone who has ever been under contract, to their current work fighting breast cancer with the Susan B. Komen Foundation, to their anti-bullying work with BA* ("Be A Star"), they are by far not a perfect organization, but they are trying.
Wishing you and yours a happy, Thankful Holiday Weekend. :)
