I firmly believe things that were funny years ago are still today. Some people don’t or just move on from “younger” ways of thinking but my brain doesn’t and never will. Everyone can remember events in our lives that bring a smile, happiness, or tears of laughter and we never forget them. 😂
Sometimes we have to put the seriousness or sadness aside and focus on the humor. My brother and I did that plenty when we watched WWF (yikes!) back then and became interested in the characters and drama. Now, it seems to be pulling at the psyche too much for me to handle. Some storylines weren’t funny at all and shocked the crap out of me! 😬😳 I was the ultimate fan for many years— craziness and all!
When I watch Warrior’s greatest matches on his Ultimate Collection DVD, I am not sad anymore but sometimes catch myself pressing the pause button. I watch to keep feeling inspired and my funny bone goes haywire! Most will see Warrior’s “Crash the Plane” promo as insane and it is but I laugh through the whole thing. Even though my teenage self was raging back then, I still got the humor and do today. Good thing I wasn’t a child at the time since I would’ve been scared thinking about a plane crash! ✈️
The format of the shows changed so much with the times and still does. It reels you in and gets you hooked. My brother and I were entertained plenty and will always have our memories which I cherish. He teases me tons about things he knows I hated but it’s all good. I am grateful my brain finds the humor amid all the insanity, even long ago.
Society has evolved with what the public finds entertaining nowadays and my “old school” brain won’t absorb it all. So glad I am not of this generation of such extreme stunts but I understand its appeal. Maybe kids watching WWE today would find yesteryear’s stars boring but it was enough for me. Lots of outrageous stimulation for this girl that I can still recall. Warrior was enough for me— crazy, exciting and just the motivation I needed. I became a fan and will remain one who will forever be “unrecreateable!”
