Poet Justice Posted October 10, 2016 Share Posted October 10, 2016 http://i.imgur.com/dW1dLhg.gif?1 January 1st, 2016 I've always been a pretty simple man. Back when I was in the ring, I only aimed to entertain. I wasn't the greatest in-ring talent ever, but every night, I would do my best to leave a smile on every last child's face. Even during my HGC days, accused on manipulating the top of the card, I honestly just did what Stallings wanted me to do. When I ended up head booker during the early days of TCW, I did my best to guide Tommy into making a fresh, new product, pushing guys who seemed like the anti-thesis of Sam Strong. Nothing changed when I went to USPW. Give the people what they want. Let the kids go home with a smile, and give everyone one heck of a show, as I would tell the boys in the back. My father always told me to do the right thing. As did his father tell him. So when I left USPW, I thought the right thing to do was to leave it in the hands where it could continue to entertain generations in the future. I had every intention to leave the business. But something changed. It became obviously clear the direction of USPW was not only benign and altruistic. It became predatory, it was designed to monetize the innocence of kids and cripple the wrestling industry. You can't just buy the entire industry, it sets a bad precedence. It became increasingly clear that Allen Packer, and Reverie as a whole, did not see the art of pro wrestling and the need to cultivate it, but rather a golden goose and untapped market for the streaming service. I'm the first to tell you how important money is to pro wrestling; but at the same time, the industry runs just as much from the love and adoration of the fans. The regional system, the competition, the organic experience of watching a wrestling show, USPW threatened all of that. That is why, today, on the first day of the young year, I, Sam Strong, have accepted Richard Eisen's offer to become the permanent head booker of Supreme Wrestling Federation. I'm sure people are wondering, why am I returning to a company that I haven't worked for in around three decades? Is it the money? I assure you, it's not. I believe this is wrestling's last stand. As the last standing remnant of traveling circuses and carnival acts, pro wrestling sits in many hearts as its last art. USPW threatens everything we hold dear. You may have forgotten, I believe I have helped establish SWF equally to that of USPW and TCW. Maybe more so. So I believe SWF has the best chance to preserve the long-standing traditions of pro-wrestling. I hope you will be joining us soon on Supreme TV.
