So in the latest WON, Dave Meltzer, the Lord of Markness said the following ..
“The Miz promo about Daniel Bryan and his contract on Smackdown made no sense. If this guy goes elsewhere, he is not wrestling in flea markets, bingo halls or high school gyms, he’s doing Tokyo dome, Arena Mexico, probably Madison Square Garden… and drawing big”.

Word of advice. Don’t take everything so seriously. Loosen up a bit. Maybe even try having a little fun, put the note pad down and pay attention. For example, I watched RAW while eating Halo Top ice cream and having my wife tell me that I was too old for this shit. She was partially right and it was truly …
