@brodehouse: Pretty much, I think. Fujinami is going in the HoF this year and apparently when Inoki went in Yoshi Tatsu won a battle royale at Wrestlemania. Coincidence?

So I figured now that there are a mere three weeks remaining in my training at SWA I'd give y'all an update. We've progressed to the point where our training is largely just being paired up and having matches. Everyone in the class has at least one match with Lance and today I had mine. Holy shit is he good. I mean sure, you can watch his matches and listen to all the the praise he gets, but being in the ring with him is an entirely different world. About half of the class has had some training before, if not full matches under their belt, but Lance has been pulling entertaining and solid matches out of even guys like me who had never taken a bump just over two months ago. It's funny because after you have a match with him you think to yourself "That went really well, I might be alright at this", and then a split second later you remember that you'd have to be god awful to manage to drag Lance Storm down. I still have so much to work on, but I'm excited to keep doing matches as the last few weeks close out.
So the local news shot a short piece on Lance's school last week. You can see me in it rolling like a ninja, reppin' New Japan.
Thanks y'all! I'll be starting week 2 tomorrow. Lance is an awesome dude and an even better teacher. I can't do much yet other than back bump, side bump, Flair flop and some super basic chain wrestling, but each day we're learning more and more. I wanted to wear my GB member shirt for the photo but couldn't find it in my luggage until the day after. This weekend I went to a local show (PWA) and help set up the ring, which was really cool (I've never shook so many hands in my life, but it was cool meeting all the wrestlers/crew and the promoter), and then this Friday I'll be doing the same for a different promotion (RCW, where Ken Anderson is in the main event. No idea what he's doing all the way in Calgary).
I'm so pumped for WK, but I might miss it. I don't know what the internet will be like in my new place, but if I watch it I'll catch the 8pm broadcast hopefully. Can't stay up all night since I start training at SWA Monday morning and don't want my sleep schedule to get messed up. The more I think about it the weirder this is. Lance freaking Storm is picking me up at the airport tonight. Fuuuuuuuuuuck.
@gai_incognito: It's my understanding that Nakamura used to be pretty damn bland up until he adopted his current swag persona, so that's probably why.
I never really had a problem with the Mighty Mouse thing, but then again I just assumed that they were going the "small, but strong as fuck" route with him.
As for Bryan's announcement, I don't think it will actually be anything important. Call me cynical, but methinks it's just a way to get people to watch and I ain't biting on that bait.
