I am writing this to simply tell you a story. This isn’t a story for your pathetic website. This isn’t a story for the marks that kiss your rear-end to tell you everything you do is great. Hell, this isn’t even for the fans of your product who don’t truly understand the industry. This is for YOU.
You see, you’ve attempted to ruin the reputation of three men: Leon St. Giovanni, JT Dunn, and I. All we’ve done is tell the truth about how your shindig operation is unprofessional. We’ve told the wrestlers and fans through Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, Daily Motion, MySpace, AIM, the whole gamut, that you are nothing more than a fan yourself. You believe you are the leader of a new revolution of the professional wrestling industry, when, in fact, you are the Phillip Green of your company, making edicts and opportunities, all the while the wannabe Sam Rothstein’s and Nicky Santoros' control the directions of the promotion. We speak truth, we get belittled. However, everyone remembers our impacts that we have made. Trust me, you remember a few.
About Time, we ran in right after a fantastic tag team match between…who were those two teams again? Exactly, because if you remember, and I know you do, Leon and I completely stole the show. We did it right at your feet. The Professional Revolution debuting on July 23 was “About Time” indeed.
The November tapings in Massachusetts, I was able to take to social media and manipulate your best friend Steve “the Turtle” Weiner and utilize his feeble intellect to my advantage. He was a pawn in the plot to recruit JT into the Revolution. Do I hate Steve? No. Do I feel bad for Steve? Yes. But Turtle was just a pawn in this equation. JT and I stole those tapings to simply show that I was not kidding about my goals.
My goals, you ask? My goals are simple. I want to teach you a lesson on how to carry yourself. I want to teach you some knowledge. I want to store some sense into your cranium.
You walk around believing that your way is the ONLY way. You carry an arrogance around that truly makes you believe you are right and everyone else is wrong. You believe workrate is the key to a successful wrestling promotion. Most importantly, you hold faith in the cards that a guy like Dan Barry is capable of being in one of your featured matches on your card.
Beyond Wrestling needs to learn some truth about this business. There are many different ways to institute formats in wrestling, not just the “Denver Colorado” way. Wrestling is a hybrid, not some one-trick pony. The Professional Revolution is here to change that status quo up. Aaron Epic and the guy you couldn’t afford to pay transportation for could steal the show for a few hits on your YouTube channel, but that doesn’t sell tickets for a live crowd. However, the groundwork that JT, Leon and I are currently laying out will get Beyond talked about and most importantly, will make us synonymous with that brand, and coincidentally will drive you up the wall. And lastly, Dan Barry in a main-event is a joke. The guy writes a blog about having no heart and being unable to deal with “the politics” with wrestling, yet you give a main event against the guy who plays with his extremities? You’ll learn, whether voluntarily or forcibly…
The Professional Revolution is gaining momentum. You are a liar. You say we were banned from a show with a secret location, well; you gave up on that “novel idea” and dished out an address. 582 Bedford St. Bridgewater, MA at the Knights of Columbus is where “Off the Grid” will be held on February 17. You made things fair game now, Denver. You thoroughly insulted us by banning us.
For me, this has gone beyond Beyond. This is now about one thing: Professionalism versus Freedom. You believe freedom in wrestling is the new wave. It’s about wrestlers being themselves, according to you. We were being ourselves, speaking our minds, and yet you were playing dictator. You gave out wrestling freedom, but only to those who seemed worthy to you. Now, we revolt with a big ol’ dose of Professionalism.
February 17, 2011, the Professional Revolution will take things to the next level. We will walk in whenever we want and teach you, Denver Colorado, a lesson. You won’t know when, you won’t know where, you won’t know how. We could walk in during the opening of the show, maybe steal intermission, hell, maybe we’ll hijack the whole show.
You doubted our words. You hurt our feelings. Most importantly, you infuriated the wrong group of guys. Denver, we haven’t stopped growing. In fact, we’ve only just begun. Off the Grid is on our radar, and on February 17, you won’t be able to detect us.
Oh Yeah Daddy.
I have a vision. My vision is simple. It is a positive goal.
I want the world to know about Hush Holiday. This kid truly has an inspirational story. http://www.snapmare.com/ADifferentPerspective0112.html
is the column I wrote on him and trust me when I say that this kid has something electric about him. Despite the fact that he has a serious disability, Hush does not let the fact he is a deaf-mute affect him, in and out of the wrestling realm. Hush is a happy-go-lucky guy that is very focused to the world of professional wrestling and definitely has a dedication about him in the wrestling ring.
Hush deserves a big opportunity to get noticed. The fact that he has so much potential in the ring in such a short time in the squared circle makes this more rewarding.
Spread the word. Let’s get everyone behind Hush. He truly is an inspiration.
Giving out some news here on The Blog of Professionalism…
I have been wheeling and dealing on some things to get some new content here on the website. Ultimately, “Markin’ Out” will be a bi-weekly web comic, which will not only over-saturate the website quickly with art, but will keep it fresh and keep it entertaining, in my eyes. The first one got decent views and definitely moving on the way up as each one comes out.
Also, TheJonHarder.com are in talks for some talent to have video content online for the site. If one definitely comes through, needless to say, it’ll be no surprise.
Furthermore, this Wednesday is going to be BIG night on the Hardway, as I have Bobby Fish on the podcast. For fans that are a huge fan of NOAH, Bobby goes into a bit of the discussion on the daily life on a typical Japanese tour, as well as some big independent stuff from his early days as well as this coming weekend with two BIG matches. Off the air, Fish was even cooler. I think you fans will dig “Big in Japan” and thanks to Bobby for doing it. This Wednesday, Fish is on the Hardway!
Finally, within the next couple of days, I have a very exclusive piece I want to discuss. Trust me; I won’t be “Off the Grid” with my remarks.
This might actually be a huge test for me tomorrow night in Wallington, NJ for ACE.
2012, I stated through the Hardway Podcast, was the year for a Good Cause. The Good Cause not only stops at TheJonHarderDOTCom. In fact, it starts tomorrow night as well for American Championship Entertainment. ACE is home. ACE is the base. And although it’s been a rough 2011 for ACE, 2012 is the biggest opportunity for this company to start Chapter 2. Since A New Era Has Begun, my goal has always been to expose ACE through my voice on DVDs or whatever facet I was able to do. And at Redemption, I have a huge test to do so.
ACE is so vastly underrated with its wrestling throughout independent wrestling, it’s disgusting. The entire product is such a great representation of the old school pacing of a show combined with the hybrid styles of wrestling infused into one unique product. It’s not just work-rate; it’s the story of how a proper wrestling show should be.
Tomorrow will be a tag team haven, as three different tag team matches with three different flavors take place: the future of tag team wrestling with The Movement facing the All-Star Sensations; an old school tag team blood feud with La Casa Italiano against Ed Scanlon and Dan Murdoch; the Tag Team championship with Quiet Riot getting their last crack at William Wyeth and…that other Scanlon brother.
Tomorrow will be infused with so many different styles: Mascara Celestial and Chapuline Negro prepare to take flight in what many people are calling a “Lucha Libre” match; Bobby Fish and Jack Gallow prepare to go at each other in what many consider to be a “Strong Style Showdown”; and Bill Carr and Nathan Banner are going to fight in a straight-up heavyweight brawl.
Tomorrow will also be a night of chance: Who will win an old school battle royal to gain a shot at NEW ACE Diamond Division champion Andrew “Tiny” Johnson; 3 men step foot into a triple threat for the ACE Heavyweight championship with champion Jorge Luis Rivera, Eddie Kingston and Stockade and there is only a 33% chance of winning said match.
Tomorrow is big for ACE. I’m psyched. I’m ready to commentate. I’m a small cog. ACE is the company to look out for. Tomorrow night, ACE will give every wrestler a chance to redeem themselves. ACE will have REDEMPTION.
And that huge test on my conscience: to call the best wrestling in New Jersey, bar none. http://twitter.com/acewrestling
What's happenin' guys? First off, HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Secondly, I wanted to announce that now on TheJonHarder.com is a new webcomic entitled "Markin' Out". It is going to be a piece which just plays on a lot of the things the wrestling business takes a part on. There is no harm or no anger built behind this idea, just something for everyone to get a laugh at. I truly think that people will like this and help take off with this webcomic and ultimately, help bring more notice to multiple different ventures here on the website. Check it and enjoy it, as #1 is online NOW!http://www.thejonharder.com/markin-out.html
