Thrillride's Thoughts on his Loyal Wrestling Fans
It's time to load the Main Event Villian Abs
Where do I go from here? That's really what this video is all about. I don't think that I wanted or needed this to be some special moment that people remember. I just knew that it was time for a change. It's time to get into great shape, be lean, look like a star and be one.
I was a "Mark" for pro wrestling. I left opportunities on the table that would have helped me and my family to pursue my pro wrestling dream. To do that and feel underappreciated by my peers, fans and promoters for the last 5 years has weighed heavily on me. I'm done playing nice and stepping on eggshells to adhere to the "unspoken codes" of pro wrestling that are more out-of-date than my move-set.
I'll always appreciate the people that have followed me and allowed me to pursue my dreams. The reality is that most of the people that follow me and enjoy my videos are not pro wrestling fans. The more popular I get outside of wrestling, the more I'm hated by the slobs wearing Bullet Club t-shirts like certified nerdboys at 54% bodyfat racing towards Type II Diabetes. I didn't turn on wrestling fans. They turned on me. The ones that have ever heard of me. I'll always love and appreciate those that follow me for my videos.
I'm very tired of pretending to be some cartoon character, so I can make the promoters happy and try to make the wrestling fans "buy-into" some caricature of the character that I developed. I'm tired of promoters not giving me shots to win a championship because "Thrillride has a following" he doesn't need a belt to sell tickets or be an attraction. I'm tired of being the New England Independents "Hacksaw" Jim Duggan. All the respect to Hacksaw. But, I'm not doing it at a Town Hall. I'm doing it in Madison Square Garden. I'll screem RRRAHHHH like he screamed "HOOOOOOOO." I just want Hacksaw money. I'm not being a cheap prostitute to whore out everything I've built MYSELF for $100 a night.
On Instagram, YouTube and to the fans that have supported me things will not change and I'll keep doing my thing as long as you laugh at my bad one-liners. With wrestling, my dream is dead and it hurts. Now, I'm on a mission to crush the souls and dreams of all the wrestlers who have the appreciation of these new wrestling fans that resemble comic con nerdboys. I will be the dream serial killer.
Like anything in life, the journey isn't about how you start. It's about how you finish. The final run has just begun...
