This year I missed the first half of Halloween as I was flying home that morning from TNA shows in Missouri. I was too tired and worn out to do much, or put much thought into a costume, but you're are never too old to buy candy and stuff your face on Halloween. And that's what I did.
Still, I hope next year me and my buddies have the motivation to go as Dethklock. I have no problem growing a mustache just like Toki Wartooth.
I've wrestled 9 out of the past 10 days. It's not like they're short matches either; the average time is probably somewhere around 15 minutes a piece. It hurts. I'd like to think I keep myself in pretty good condition, but I've been falling on my back pretty consistently for the past 10 years. I can't believe it's been that long, but that's a blog for another time. So many people look at what we do and assume the ring is a lot more bouncy than it actually is. I know I did. Unfortunately, it's not necessarily the wrestling that kills you. It's the absolute lack of sleep. It's the fact we're cramped up in planes for two separate flights before spending five hours in a car within a 12-hour period. It's the lack of food on the road, it's the addition of tons of bruises and sprains and aches and pains.
Some days, I wonder what it'd be like to wake up totally, completely pain-free, but then I'd have to live with the emotional pain of never chasing a dream.
Tune in to an all new episode of TNA iMPACT! Thursday night at 9PM/8C on Spike, followed by TNA Reaction that takes you behind-the-curtain at 11PM/10C!
