Roman also has the extremely reasonable, if not particularly likable, argument of: "Yeah, I'll keep doing whatever they want me to, popular or not, because I get paid a lot of money to be 'the guy' "

Roman is in the best possible situation in this. No pressure or need to improve, he is going continue being pushed and paid anyway.

And good for him too because that's what wrestling is really about, getting paid.

Only two kinds of people wear Hawaiian shirts: Gay people and big fat party animals.

And Taker is a big fat party animal.

"It’s good to get back out in front of people." Ambrose said of his return. "I had a lot of frustration I needed to really get out that built up over the last eight months. It was a long, long period of time. Much longer than I would have been anticipated. It was just one nightmare after another. It was a pretty challenging period of time to go through. I ended up having two different surgeries. I had this MRSA, Staph infection, I nearly died. I was in the hospital for a week plugged up to this antibiotic drip thing, and I was on all these antibiotics for months that make you puke and crap your pants.

So it was a pretty rough time. My arm wasn’t healing correctly, and my triceps. It’s kind of an indeterminate period where I initially hurt it." Ambrose said. "I thought it was, we call it Dusty elbows. It’s a pretty typical wrestler thing. You just get this bursa sac of fluid on your elbow from banging it on the mat or whatever. I’ve had that dozens of times on both elbows. It usually just goes away. It was kind of disguised. By the time I finally went and got the first surgery, my triceps was already starting to atrophy and look weird. I wasn’t able to flex my triceps for a really long time, and then the first surgery didn’t really, something went wrong in the process. Probably due to that infection. It’s kind of hard to say when that really even got in my body. This is a long answer to your question, but for a minute there, it was getting scary." Ambrose revealed. "By the time I got that second surgery, it was March I think. My arm was so shrunken and skeletal that it was weird. I hadn’t been able to move it or flex it in so long that I was starting to get scared I wasn’t ever going to get it back. To go from not being able to eat my Froot Loops, to being able to get back in the ring and throw people around and throw punches and do everything back to normal, it was a very gratifying feeling."

“It was in the middle of 2011, I was on tour in Mexico and I had so many dates up ahead but everything just came to a stop because I did this crazy backflip double rotation and I guess I over-rotated and I landed on the barricade. Thank god that stopped my fall. I mean, if I hit the ground, I would have been dead because nobody caught me.

“I ended up staying in Mexico for about two and a half months. I was diagnosed with post-concussion syndrome. I always tell everybody this… it’s like being drunk day and night non-stop — it was so annoying. Even sleeping, it just felt like the whole room was spinning around.”

“It was so annoying. Throwing up, unable to go to the bathroom…”

“I went back to Chicago, my mom was so scared she ended up having a heart attack.”

Dean's bit is a good reminder for everyone that asks "why don't you just get the surgery instead of trying to rehab it" when it comes to surgical procedures. poo poo can go wrong and it can go south real fast.

Well I was hoping that Finn might leave WWE when his contract was up, but I guess that's impossible now.

Your mother!



Staph doesn't gently caress around. I'm on lifelong anticoagulation medication, and until June, I was doing twice-daily injections of enoxaparin (since I had failed warfarin and Xarelto, had clotting events while on both of them). An injection site in my belly got badly infected with staph, requiring emergency surgery to drain more than 150cc of poo poo out of me (the post-surgery wound was about the width of two golf balls, and maybe 3-4cm deep). And then the antibiotics they had me on in the hospital caused renal failure.

Shitshow all around.

Usually I'd say that Roque news would mean Fale going to WWE but I think Fale knows enough that he'd be dead in the water in WWE even its booking was good. He has his New Japan spot cause of his size and the minute he stands next to Braun that's gone

They made an offer for all of the original Bullet Club at some point as far as I understand, it's just that for Fale it probably is not the best idea given his size is nothing special in the WWE. Also he lives in New Zealand so WWE travel would super awful for him
