Monday Night Open Mic

“‘Be a bush if you can’t be a tree. If you can’t be a highway, just be a trail. If you can’t be a sun, be a star. For it isn’t by size that you win or fail. Be the best of whatever you are.’.” — Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

(That’s actually a quote on a picture I kept in my son’s room from the day he was born. When he went away to college, he took that picture with him. It was a proud mom moment.)

Howdy Blog O’Doomers!

Tonight actually marks the go home show for the Royal Rumble. For real? Damn I have been so lost with WWE main shows. Between NXT and trying to like AEW (not there yet, trying hard though), no time for this RAW/Smackdown silliness.

But I heard last week’s RAW was decent so maybe I’ll give tonight a whirl. We’ve got Andrade vs. Rey Rey in a ladder match for the U.S. title. Randy Orton vs. Drew McIntyre. Probably more Seth Rollins than we’ll want. Is Brock supposed to be on TV tonight? Who knows. Maybe they will build the women’s Rumble a little bit. Probably not though.

The Rock put out about an 8 minute video statement following the death of his father. He says early that his father died quick and he didn’t get a chance to say good bye.
