First up is Foley’s praise of the Neville vs. Chris Jericho match from Saturday’s WWE Japan special:
JAPAN IS JERICHO
I didn’t quite make it to 5:30 am for #BeastInTheEast on #WWENetwork, but figured it would be a very good show. I did not, however, predict it as a show that Chris Jericho might steal. Honestly, I didn’t even know he was on the card. But when I asked my oldest son about the show, he couldn’t stop talking about that Jericho/Neville match. So I watched it – and I suggest after you’ve eaten a couple dogs, watched your local fireworks show, and do whatever it is you do (assuming you’re from the US) that you do the same. It’s awesome! If you’re not from the US, and don’t any hot dogs to eat, or any holiday to celebrate, you need to watch this match RIGHT NOW!
I think Jericho is one of those guys who has been so good for so long, that his contributions sometimes get overlooked. What is your favorite Y2J moment? What did you think of #BeastInTheEast? Should this match serve as notice that Neville is a force to be reckoned with in #WWE?
The second blog was about ex-WWE star Chyna.
I had to laugh when I was accused on social media a few days ago of becoming a corporate sell-out for WWE – I guess because I compliment them and their product quite a bit. But, as I mentioned to my wife, corporate sell-outs don’t tend to invite Chyna over to hang out with their family and watch WWE PPV’s. But seeing Chyna recently brought back a flood of great memories – of not only how good a friend she was to me, but how incredibly kind she was to my daughter so many years ago – taking her by the hand, doing her make-up, treating her to that dorky, nerdy humor, and that amazing laugh. Most of you reading this probably have either forgotten that amazing laugh…or never knew it existed in the first place.
Now she’s part of a documentary film, “The Reconstruction of Chyna”, which I hope will help her find peace, and closure – and maybe even her rightful place in the WWE Hall of Fame. To learn more about her documentary, and how you can contribute to her Kickstarter campaign, just go to http://therealchyna.com
Now, if you’ll excuse me, I have some corporate selling-out to get back to.
