Sometimes I get frustrated that Stardom fans don’t post much about the company, the matches, etc. on social media. There are plenty of fans, plenty of pictures, and some discussion, mostly on Twitter and Reddit, but there’s nowhere near as much of any that as there is for WWE, AEW, Impact, etc. However, as I started to examine this, I discovered a few things. More than half of social media posts about other companies are complaints, frustrations, and flat out hatred. WWE, Impact, AEW, and other company’s fans are for the most part, seldom, if ever, happy. The positive posts from those fans are typically about certain wrestlers that they love because they are getting pushed, and or winning titles. Fans of these other promotions can be happy, but typically the majority are calling for change, griping about wins and losses, and armchair booking. Sure, sometimes those things can be fun. Occasionally debate and disagreement can be enjoyable, but that’s pretty rare.
What I’ve discovered about most Stardom fans, and yes, there are exceptions, they are almost always happy. You see, in Stardom, the vast majority of the wrestlers are seen as “worthy” even if they aren’t everyone’s favorites. For example, I am very frustrated that my two favorites, Hazuki and AZM (pronounced Azumi) aren’t holding any major titles, and I don’t see much chance of that changing anytime real soon. The reason I don’t bitch and moan all the time on social media is that I acknowledge and accept that those they are losing too are amazing, hard workers, and incredible wrestlers. I believe the biggest gripes Stardom fans have is usually regarding booking decisions made by Stardom executive producer, Rossy Ogawa. Fans believe that Rossy has his favorites and those favorites will be pushed over more deserving talent. Again though, I believe even most of those fans accept that just about every woman on the Stardom roster are worthy of a push, worthy title holders, worthy representatives of the company. One major “booking” issue many have, especially American fans, is that new comers will often get huge pushes and title reigns while long term roster members do not. I honestly have no answer for that, as I don’t understand it myself. Every issue and complaint is always answered by the greatness of the wrestlers in Stardom, even if they aren’t YOUR favorite. It’s a phenomenon like I have never seen in professional wrestling, especially modern day professional wrestling.
So I say to you that if you want to be a happy professional wrestling fan, a content professional wrestling, if you want to find joy, fun, and excitement in professional wrestling again, I would strongly suggest that you follow World Wonder Ring Stardom.
