You are my sworn enemy. You have wronged me in every way possible. You are the only thing that stands in my way of the pinnacle of this promotion... the world heavyweight championship. You've done countless amounts of professional, emotional, physical, and deliberate wrong to my colleagues, my friends, some of my family members, and me. I have an opportunity to speak to you, face-to-face, in front of a live audience, to get all of these things off my chest. But before I do.... ... ..... ...... ........ ..........I'm going to talk about how great you've been to the industry, how important you are to the business, and how much I don't like you; however, I must mention the fact that I can't help but "respect" you. Does anyone else see something wrong with this picture?????? If you're answer is EVERYTHING, then welcome to the cookie-cutter art of the modern-day TNA promo. It happens week in and week out on Impact Wrestling, online promos, and during pay per views. And whenever it does, I find myself constantly rolling my eyes and saying to myself, "Give me a fucking break. Are you serious?!? I thought this guy messed with your family/friends/career?" If a person was truly angry about these things, how can they (in their right mind) take a minute to praise an opponent before verbally going for the kill, like any normal athletic competitor would??? Needless to say, it annoys me to no end. WHO CARES if the opponent is a legend in the business? WHO CARES about past relationships they've had in other promotions? WHO CARES about titles they've held, stables they've been a part of, or who they're associated with? If you're a professional athlete and their enemy, don't they stand in the way of you reaching your goals? Then why would someone waste their time in buttering them up before they verbally or physically go for the kill? Maybe they should spend less time on sucking each other off and more time on DEFEATING them. To me, none of this make any sense. If any of you agree or disagree with me, I'd love to hear your thoughts on TNA's use of this method during promos.
