I just watched some footage from DDP just this morning and it got me choked up. It's always nice to hear the stories from behind the curtain, the 'where's' and the 'why's' and such behind the storylines we all enjoy watching on the small screen each week. It was awesome to hear and see him tell stories in honor of the legend we just lost this last week. I never heard most of what he said before this morning and it was really moving. With a 10 bell salute to end the vid, it really drove home that the one and only "Macho Man" is truly gone forever. You will be missed.....thanks for putting it out there for us.
These are the kinds of things I miss from wrestling shows....shows like WWE Confidential and such that had interviews and all kinds of backstage stories and things that give you some insights as to how things work and who does what and how everything goes together. That's the meat and potatoes of this business; giving the fans something to chew on and think about. Some may argue that it takes away some of the mysticism and intrigue of the sport, but I disagree. I would say that it intensifies the desire to do something new. Hearing how things have been done before and tweaking them to find a new spin on a classic story, that's how it's all done.
