The Mental Ward: Public Enemy #1…..

DUNN

I first discovered pro wrestling in the mid-1980s. “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes doing battle with “Beautiful” Bobby Eaton inside a steel cage is one of my earliest wrestling memories. However, when I saw “Nature Boy” Ric Flair and Sting go 60 minutes at the first Clash of the Champions, I was hooked for life. THAT was storytelling. THAT was drama. THAT was pro wrestling. In my youth Hulkamania ran wild. In my high school and college years, The Attitude Era redefined the industry. In my adult years, things just haven’t been the same. A spark is missing. The sport I loved has morphed into something almost unrecognizable at times. Yet, I still watch. I cling to hope that pro wrestling will one day again return to past glory. Webster defines insanity as doing the same thing over and over again but expecting a different result. Ladies and gentlemen, come on in. We’re all friends here. Welcome back to, “The Mental Ward.”

Kashin In: The Introducing Kevin Owens Edition (5-19-2015)

RAW

Hello everyone and welcome to another installment of Ka$hin In with Keila Ca$h. Tonight’s episode of Monday Night Raw emanated from the Richmond Coliseum in Richmond, Virginia. Last night’s Payback PPV was a sleeper show that exceeded expectations. There were several matches that stood out and the crowd was hot most of the night based on several reports and video clips I have seen online. I didn’t watch the show live because I felt WWE did a poor job promoting the PPV. I didn’t have an emotional investment in any of the matches despite the faith I had in the performers to overcompensate for the lukewarm booking and storytelling. Would the fallout give me a justifiable reason to look forward to the Elimination Chamber or would I be numb to it all once again? The answer to that question can be found throughout this blog. Without further ado, let’s dissect tonight’s episode of Raw in no particular order.
