Before I begin, here’s another date I’ve been reminded of. 7️⃣years ago today is when WWE’s 2014 HOF inductees were announced. I read that somewhere and had to write it down. 💙👏🏻 All these dates that seem to line up on Warrior Wednesdays. A few BIG ones are coming but I’ll save them for March…
That pic of the Ultimate Warrior above was during an interview right before he tore down the set of “The Brother Love Show.” That was built up and then torn down. Don’t we all just want to do that sometimes? Of course that segment on T.V. was scripted but what about our real lives? I bet most of us sometimes feel the need to pick up a chair and throw it or something worse. It’s like shaking our own ropes. Our frustrations and emotions or even anger get the best of us. I’m generally speaking here and not addressing the recent events in the U.S. last week.
Despite the physical, we tear each other down all the time. Our thoughts, words, actions and everything in between affects us and others. Humans have a tendency to let our disagreements or differences get in the way and when someone isn’t on our side, sh** happens.
Many disliked the Ultimate Warrior character or even Warrior himself and tore him down. I know he was guilty of things as well but we need to build up and should as respectful people. Every single one of us starts fresh and new with whatever we choose in life. Then once we get noticed, say certain words, take action and such, we are torn down. It isn’t always those famous people either as we all know nor is it big huge things people do that brings them down. We can’t stay small and quiet forever but as soon as we build ourselves up or an opportunity comes, someone will always be there to tear it down.
All of us have been there. Think about those moments in your life where you built something up and made it happen. It’s all going great but then an opinion, remark, or event will get thrown at you and all your hard work gets knocked around.
Most know the build up of U.W. and how he, Vince McMahon, and the fans worked together. Then, perspectives shifted, differences began and it all started getting torn like his crumbling face paint.
There are consequences for our actions if they become extreme but some may not care. That’s their right. Our beliefs are in us for a reason and if we feel the need to share those, o.k. Let’s just be in control and remember to keep logic in the match. Even the best of arguments can turn sour or go south so to speak. My husband and I get along great but disagree on several heated topics. Have we torn each other down? Not entirely but we know better. Like I’ve said before, you don’t need to always agree but should always respect. That’s what builds us up.
It is quite the different life with fame as we all have our favorites across generations. When someone starts out, we know little about them but then we see and hear more from them. We still might be a fan but there are those actions that will make us disagree so much we don’t feel the same anymore. I’ve had that happen with famous people I admired or liked. No, this doesn’t apply to Warrior at all as most have assumed with my writings and never will. I can make my opinion known about him or stuff in his past but will never tear him down, ever.
Some may even lose a close family member or friend over a time because of something being built up and then unexpectedly torn down. You may have regrets but perhaps you don’t. Only you and that other person can decide on the best resolution.
Think about how you can even help if someone has been torn down. Your kindness or offer of support may just be what wins the match in their life. Things always start by building and then over time they wear out or get old. We can replace or repair but it may be too beat up. Then, we will start again and strap on our gear with new moves to build anew. Even wrestlers will tear down their gimmick and build it up again. You will be tempted to go with the crowd or with what’s popular but only your decisions will decide on the tear down or build up.
We’ve all been guilty of negative things in our lives but need to choose the positive. You can have your own point of view but use it in a respectful and honorable way. Let’s all be better warriors and work our best. We don’t need to be the reason of a tear down but should be the reason for a build up. The Brother Love Show had to go but real love never will…
P.S. It has come to my attention that some recent YouTube video links haven’t been working. Perhaps YouTube isn’t allowing sharing anymore, I don’t know.? If a link doesn’t access, just search up the actual YouTube channel. Some channels don’t have that many videos so accessing them shouldn’t take too long.
