mad5226 Posted April 26, 2016 Share Posted April 26, 2016 Richard Eisen pounded his desk in frustration as he read the internet headlines again, “Wrestling Kingpin Falls from Grace”. Those damn smarks thought they knew better than him, the great Richard Eisen. Sure the company had fallen on hard times as of late, but these damn keyboard warriors were relentless. Hundreds of people calling for him to resign, to give up the book to someone younger and hipper. They all claim he’s lost touch with his viewers and purposely alienated them for the sake of pushing his son. Richard threw his mouse across the room, a bunch of ungrateful assholes is what they were. Did they really think they could run a wrestling promotion better than him? Were they all so self centered that they honestly felt like they deserved to decide who the next SWF champion was? He scuffed at the thought. How nice it must be to live in a world where just because you feel like a man like Angry Gilmore is the most fun to watch he should be the world champion. How humorous it was that all those people can judge the great Richard Eisen simply because they look at wrestling in a vacuum. They fail to understand the other hundreds of decisions that go into making a champion. Things like backstage politics, and stakeholders. Worrying that your main event scene is too “white” or that the biggest draw your company has ever seen demands certain things or he’ll simply “take his ball and go home”. He tossed his computer onto the ground next to his mouse and grinned as it shattered into a hundred pieces. It was the internet that had done this to him. Gone were the days of suspended reality, and shock factors. Now everything you ever think is right there, on that 24 inch screen just waiting to be judged, and judged he was. Richard knew he was losing his supporters, he knew they were no longer the number 1 company in the world. He knew he needed to change, a youth movement needed to pass through those ropes and take the industry back by the balls. He didn’t need some punk internet smark to tell him that. He was Richard F@ckng Eisen, and he was the GOD of professional wrestling! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
