STATE OF THE MACINTYRE ADDRESSES ~ Show Breakdown Edition

There's a few shows in the area that I have connections with that I decided to breakdown and try to evaluate in my own special way, so that people that don't understand why I'm not wrestling, what I think of certain shows, and most importantly, get certain things off my chest. If you are a part of either three of these organizations, please do not take offense to anything I say. I hope the best for us all and want to keep a good relationship with all of you. I have plenty more to say, but I think I'm just going to rant and see where it goes...

I think we're going to do this one by one...

NGW

Next Generation Wrestling is, more or less, a child of mine. Though the promoter, Alex Larson, and I may not get along 100% of the time, he knows what that show means to me, and that I'd do anything for any of the guys there. He and I are two VERY stubborn people and since it is show, I'm always on the short end of the stick. I've learned that I can't argue my way into a better place in NGW, though I do appreciate every chance I'm given to see my guys. With them working with GAW people, I can't really say "I deserve to be able to push anyone aside so I have a spot in the show," because I don't want to take any chances away from anyone else. But I'll be honest in saying that I'm very VERY intrigued to see how the whole NGW/GAW relationship works out.

When I say that NGW is a child of mine, there is 150% truth to that statement. I may not have started it along with Apocolypse and Deacon Hobbs, but I can honestly say that there probably wouldn't be an NGW without MacIntyre. It was people like me that were in Forest City, open to close, sometime more than that, working on making sure each show went off without a hitch. And back when it was EAW, the class of 01 (which consisted of the Pekin Kids, Ian Storm and his crew, Griff, Alex, and Myself) rebirthed that show into what was to be the makings of NGW. There were people here and there that put more elbow grease into that show, then they would their own personal lives, and as much as we didn't think it did at the time, it would pay off. Even when other people got pissed and left it (and everyone did, including Alex), there were TWO that stuck with it. Matter of fact, the longest running NGW mainstays were me and Keyes before I'd left. Then after awhile, Keyes left. I've never been the bitter ones that went through the bad times, then cursed the people who left during it, because it made me feel good about MYSELF when I knew that we who did stay gave them something to come back to.

I love wrestling there, but it does get old having to go the same route over and over again... Sorry, Pappa, but MacIntyre/Pappa 62 didn't sound all that tempting, so I had to back out. Chris Hazard and I worked awesome as a tag team, and we did better than we ever have with our latest matches against each other. I was on a roll with our feud. But, Alex didn't know what he wanted to do with me. Other than one idea, that I was very very against, there was no creative road for the MacIntyre character in NGW. I'm not angry, at all. Just upset. I'm an easy guy to book for, especially when I'm given any control of it. I didn't want to be completely in the title picture, but that's all I was good for, really. I just wanted to have some fresh new matches. Contrary to rumor, I wasn't mad that I didn't get the title. It's perfectly fine around Chris's waist, and I think I made Chris look like a better Champion for the way he beat me.

GAW

Now, I'd be lying to you if I said that I didn't care about Great American Wrestling in my own special way. It's really a provokative group of people. I may not know a lot of them all too well. Before I got to actually watch a couple shows of theirs, I really had prejudged them as similar to NMW and NGW in every way. But watching how some of them talk in the back and watching how they work, they're very unique. I wouldn't say "unique" in the way that you normally see in wrestling (i.e. Cruiserweights, hardcore, etc.), but more in the fact that GAW is a lot like the Bad News Bears. Before I make any enemies, I need to say that I mean that in the best way possible. Ragtag, misfits forcing themselves into an environment, without truly conforming themselves. The proverbial "square pegs" are striving to be the best wrestling show they can be. And that inspires me. Bless their hearts.

I'm not campaigning for a spot in GAW, and don't think that Stephani King working GAW shows is me trying to put my foot in the door. If GAW wants me, they can ask me. It's good that Steph has somewhere else to work. She truly makes the Camera in "Lights, Camera, Action", and helps the story along as far as that goes. And I had to help Stephani ask Stan Sallinger if he wanted her to work for him there, because Steph just doesn't have the confidence. And I think working in GAW and working well will help her out with this. She's a really good hand to have, and it's really nice to see her to well.

As I said, GAW has known that I could work for them. But the same problem of pushing guys aside still pesters me. I don't want to take anything away from anyone else that works just as hard, if not harder, than I do to wrestle. I still remember meeting (at least) Coop at an NGW show while I was champ... And thinner... I think I have an okay relationship with them. And I hope they know that I'll do anything within my own power to help them with anything they ask. If they don't, they should.

NMW

New Midwest Wrestling is a rather shaky subject with me. I can honestly say that I don't know where my place is with them. They don't realize how much I want to be a part of the production of the show, and the fact that I'm very capable of handling a lot of responsiblility with it. I know that I'm not one of the founding members, or that I haven't been around as long as half the people there, but I have been eyeball deep in anything that NMW has participated in. I've been to anything "NEW MIDWEST" 95% of the time. I'd have to be half dead to miss something. Hell, I think I've been to more practices than the actual trainers since moving down to Springfield. Everyone says that they respect me as a wrestler, but I know for a fact that some don't respect me as a New Midwest Wrestling wrestler.

It's frustrating to walk back into a curtain and hear, "Good match," "Good promo," or "That was a great spot!" over and over again, only to brought down by the fact that no faith is shown when I ask to be given any chances. And I'm not just talking booking, or having any creative control. But when I say, "Why don't we yakkity, yakkity?" or "I think that this would be a good idea.", I get told that it'll be brought up at the next meeting. Then it's never brought up to me again. I ask about it, and I get told it's voted down.

I've never failed with an idea or a concept when it's come to wrestling. Any risk that I've taken in wrestling has paid off. Whether it's creative with my own or someone's match, how a show is put together visually, or conceptually, whatever it is, I've never failed. I just wish that more people, other than Christina Nation (the owner), saw that. She talks me up a good game, but I don't think that anyone ever listens when it's about me.

If I have to be content with just wrestling there, that's fine. Because as frustrated as I feel about everything else, wrestling in a New Midwest show is unparalleled. It's a blast and there's no show like it. I'm just not ready to wrestle full time yet. I don't know when it's going to be. As with the other two places, if they were to tell me that they needed to fill a spot, BAM, I'd be there. But there's nothing that's getting me off my rear, just yet. I like the rest and relaxation, especially with the last few months that I've had. I've even been to training and shows since I've been on hiatus, so there's your loyalty, right there.

Everywhere Else...

I don't even have time to put all that stuff up. Maybe later. I'm happy with this.

Former Million Dollar Man hospitalized...

Ted DiBiase, currently a WWE road agent, has been hospitalized in Stamford, CT today after collapsing. He is being held overnight for tests.



God, I hope someone ran up and stuffed a $100 bill in his mouth as soon as he hit the floor.

EDIT: But in all actuality, I'm wishing the best for one of the greatest wrestlers to never have held the World Title.

First off, Steph and I started a new relationship recently. It's nobody's business why we did it, and if you think that you're privy to such information or have an itch to ask anyone, you are best to keep your mouth shut about it. We're having different days than we have in the last two years, and that's a good thing. They're not 100% completely better days, but they are a whole lot more promising. I'm not a passive person; I have just learned to stop and think before I make any steps in correcting anything. She has been good to me, and I've tried to be good to her. We've both been through too much in our lives to give up so easily.

Where do I sit with wrestling? Right now, I'm done. I'm in a mindset that the business is so watered down with too many shows, and not enough interest even half of them. There's very little growth in anything around here, regardless of what the Chicago Kids think. Everything overlaps and no one is happy. No one fixes it, because everyone working nowadays is a fan. What happened to wrestling being a job, a task? Now everyone wants to entertain themselves that most (I'll give a little credit) forget that they are selling a product, just like a toy store, or a sandwich shop. If you're pandering more to yourself and the others in the back, and not to the paying customer, then cannot say that you're doing good business. A lot of places make great matches, but not great shows, and end up having to base their income on Tape sales... but what if you had the comprimise of the two? I'd love to have a great gate and then interest in the DVD's. One of the Ultimate Goals in wrestling needs to be the live crowd. A wrestler controls the emotion of a crowd, but it also works in reverse. Thus a great match should be determined by the reaction of the majority. Don't you dare tell me that you had a great match when you had one reaction to the last move in the match.

Wrestlers, you're not gonna get anywhere by directly copying the guys you see on TV. It's okay to take little bits here and there. But to have carbon copy matches is NOT ENTERTAINING, NOR IS IT RESPECTABLE. You're not that good if you can't think on your own.

"Early in my career during the 1960s, I had to learn the hard way about developing a character that was bold and unique. I had put together a routine that I felt was strong, so I asked former National Wrestling Alliance Champion Pat O'Connor to see what he thought.

He said, 'I saw Buddy Rogers and Don Eagle. When do I get to see you?'

I was stumped. I didn't get what he was saying. But then I realized that because I was green, I picked up all of these moves and mannerisms from the people I idolized and was putting them out there. As many years as he had in the business, Pat had realized that was the case.

So I kept some of those things I was doing, but modified them in a way to make them mine.
"

~ Les Thatcher


It's okay to see something here and there, but for someone to tell you, "I've seen that match before," should tell you all about your TALENT.

I'll have more later, but I'm in hungry mode, and I thought about getting into shower mode. I smell like tender beef.
