I have always been convinced that good, solid, well worked, professional wrestling has multiple millions of fans. The problem is, most of them have completely abandoned professional wrestling. I've been a fan of professional wrestling since 1977, and while the stuff that I loved is dead, and almost completely gone, the idea that wrestling COULD still be great, exists in my mind so much, that I can't completely stop being a fan, though I have come close, numerous times. While just about every major company over the last few decades have had great matches, none of them have presented that all of the time. Great matches always have to be surrounded by silliness, comedy, over the top, sports entertainment drivel, that insults wrestling fans that want it to be "done right." As of January 11th, 2022 the only two places where I can find "wrestling done right," are New Japan Pro Wrestling, Pro Wrestling NOAH, and World Wonder Ring, Stardom. I would have once included Major League Wrestling on this list, bust for some time now, it has been a Lucha company, and Lucha isn't something I have much interest in.
Ring of Honor's "Pure Division" rose up for a short time, and excited me like I've not been excited over American wrestling in many years. Shortly after though, the company went on hiatus, and from my understanding, when they return, the Pure title isn't coming back. While I love Jon Gresham, and "The Foundation," ROH's lack of support for the title they so recently brought back, doesn't inspire to me lend them a lot of support, but I am not saying I won't give them a chance, time will tell what ROH is going to be in April, when they come back.
Rising up in the place of ROH, and it's Pure Division, is "TERMINUS," a new company started by Jon Gresham himself, and his partner, Baron Black. They recently released the rules, or as they are calling them, "Directives," and they have me excited, they have me hopeful, and they have me ready to embrace the company with every ounce of passion that I have, and trust me, that's a lot of passion! Take a look at the directives here-
