As you all know, we're weeks-deep into our journey down the Road to Wrestlemania. Wrestlemania, of course, is the magnum opus of professional wrestling - the best sport in existence, with oiled-up muscle men and women doing powerful ballet. This year, John Cena (the New York Yankees of WWE) takes on The Rock (the Dwayne Johnson of the WWE) in a rematch that last year was billed as "Once in a lifetime." Well, I must have died and gone to Heaven because here we are again!
The goal of any professional wrestler is to "get over," meaning to get a reaction from the crowd (whether positive or negative, "face" or "heel"). Unless they are as charismatic as Hulk Hogan or a sideshow attraction like Andre the Giant, most wrestlers need a gimmick to get over. Fortunately for you, dear readers, and for the WWE creative team members who are undoubtedly reading this, FYAD came up with characters guaranteed to get a reaction from wrestling fans and non-fans alike!
A guy whgo think Ansel Adams "rules" and is dressed like a scorpion
a tag team that rides a tandem bicycle to the ring and also inside the ring
a guy that loves to grapple and cant stop talking about grappling and it gets kinda uncomfortable
a guy who always talks about defending his house from zombies and carries a concealed gun into the ring
luchador who honestly believes hes masked, but hes not. its a psychological mask he wears, and its ok to take it off and be himself
a girl in a fatsuit who does a heel turn when she gets "plastic surgery"
little fluffy muffy
Two Time Champion: he has been the champion twice. He is feared by even champions. He also has an award for cheating on his wife. He is the best at cheating on her and she is conflicted about it because she is proiud of his success
Top Bunk Wanker
guy who misunderstood his trainer at wrestling school and keeps getting disqualified for bringing a clothesline into the ring and trying to whip people with it
an autistic tightrope walker who snaps and unleashes brutal elbow bombs on anyone who tries to make him stop runnng around the ring on the top rope
blonde guy with long hair who chugs Stone IPA - Arrogant Bastard Ale on his way to the ring
it's hard to shake the feeling that I've always got five stars in this Grand Theft Auto known as life.
Now, inexplicably, season three is looming over us like some sort of dome. Season one's plot asked whether or not the town could get out from under the dome. Apparently the answer was "no". Season two asked "I guess we're really stuck, huh?" and the answer was "yup".
