The Merry Christmas News Update – December 25, 2020

Good morning, and a Merry Christmas to you all.

I don’t think there’s really much in the way of news this morning, but I just want to thank everyone sincerely for continuing to support the blog through these horrible times and this horrible year.  To say that 2020 has had some ups and downs for me would be an understatement.  From a business perspective things went into the toilet for the website when the virus hit in March, but around Summerslam we rebounded strongly and for the year overall I’m actually above where I was at the same time last year, which is a huge relief.  Patreon and the Fite.TV partnership really helped to keep me afloat for a while there, so a big thank you to anyone who contributed in any small way.  I’ve mentioned a few times that I’m going through a really hard time right now on a personal level, and doing my silly recaps of wrestling shows is one of the things that has really kept me sane while being mostly locked down and trapped in the house and not able to go to movies or concerts or any of the other activities that would usually recharge my batteries.  It’s a different world now.  I don’t know if I’m really ever going to want to eat out at restaurants again instead of ordering in, to be honest.  This year has been one non-stop awful ball of stress and anxiety for me, and for many other people in my life and social circles, and although people have written to me thanking me for continuing to produce content and entertainment, I am also thankful to have a fanbase still sticking with me after all these years when my contemporaries are literally dropping dead.  This year is so messed up, man.  I want 2021 to storm in like Ultimate Warrior and destroy 2020 like it’s Honky Tonk Man.

Anyway, have a very Merry Christmas and be kind to each other, and I will do my best to continue entertaining you as much as I can.
