Do I Hate All Short Wrestlers?
Ariel Dominguez asked me on one of my Facebook statuses if I, and others like me, that don't like Marko Stunt, believe he should leave wrestling because of his height. I told him absolutely not, as it's not just about height to me. it's about look, it's about style, it's about name, presentation, etc.
I am not a fan of Marko Stunt because he looks like a wet towel hanging in my bathroom, combined with the fact that he's four feet tall (or whatever he is).
I am not a fan of Cheeseburger, even though yes, I know the ROH guys all love him, and he's the first one in the building, and the last one out, and he helps train, etc. etc. but his name is fucking Cheeseburger, and his gear is ridiculous looking, and nothing he does in the ring offensively looks believable to me.
Ariel Dominguez is a legit amateur super star, He looks like a million dollars, has gear that is super professional and screams "I am a fighter." He looks like he might live at the gym, and I suspect could legit take a much larger guy out, in a real fight. If Dominguez were to face Burger and Stunt in singles matches, and he wasn't booked to destroy them, I'd be pissed off. Being under 5'7" or so should always cause a wrestler to struggle, to always have to work from the bottom, but if they look and perform like Ariel, them being in the fight, and winning their fair share, wouldn't bother me at all. I'd rather have more short guys that look and work like Ariel Dominguez than a company full of mudshow clowns sticking their thumbs up each others assholes.
From Being the Elite, The Bubbly Bunch, Broken Matt Hardy, and all of the WWE’s nonsense, the wrestling market is saturated with silliness. There are wrestling fans out there desperate for real, desperate for legitimate tough guy/women wrestlers, desperate for companies, and wrestlers, that present what they do as a fight, as a struggle, as an athletic competition to crown the best in the world of professional wrestling, not slapstick comedy routines performed inside a wrestling ring, or wrestling “environment.” The social media market is also saturated with “wrestlers” (or, gag, sports entertainers) and their gimmicks, but none of them, and yes I said none of them, are using social media to their advantage in any real way. Creating a gimmick Facebook page, where you occasionally post, or (gasp!) even answer fans posts, is cute, and better than nothing, but it doesn’t come close to fulfilling what you could do with sites like Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram.
So I’ve decided to offer a free “Social Media Seminar” from “The Wrestling Snob” Adam Leavelle. I’m a guy that trained to be a wrestler in the 80’s. I didn’t stick with it, but remained a loyal fan, and managed a time or two after I had “left” training because of my ability to talk. Twenty years later I started writing for numerous wrestling websites such as 411Mania, PWMania, PWPodnerings, The Indy Corner, Wrestling Inc, among others. I decided to open my own site when I began covering my local indies, in hopes of getting those companies over as much as a place like Ring of Honor was. I feel that I succeeded in that cause, bring a ton of attention to The Ultimate Wrestling Experience, Lancaster Championship Wrestling, Atomic Championship Wrestling, Rogue Women Warriors, and Legacy Wrestling. Along the way though, I found myself getting over with the indie crowd on some level. It got to the point to where I was invited to work for those companies, as well as MCW Pro Wrestling. When men in the business like Tiger Hitore, AJ Styles, Bobbie Fish, Adam Cole, Kevin Kelly, and others knew who I was, I wondered how lesser known wrestlers could accomplish the same. Yes, of course by their wrestling, and bookings, but I had discovered that you could get your name out there without even stepping into a wrestling ring, so how could wrestlers that I love, help boost the attention they were receiving in the wrestling world like me? My seminar will tell you how, and it’s coming soon to Facebook Live, for free! Yes, some will laugh at this. Some will roll their eyes, but I am telling you that if you LISTEN to what I have to say, and practice my suggestions, you’ll find yourself getting more bookings than ever. I have been invited all over the country to “review” shows, and if I saw fit, label them as “wrestling done right.” From Arkansas to Kentucky, New York, to West Virginia, and all places in between, I’ve been asked to appear, and post my thoughts of these shows on my social media. Now I want to help wrestlers that desire to be “more over” to have that happen. I don’t expect many will listen, and some won’t even care if what I am saying is true. For the few of you still with me, stay tuned, my “seminar” is coming soon! There’s no reason I should “more over than you,” and I am willing to help you make that happen! That’s always been, and forever will remain my goal.
