Hello everybody. I’ve been pretty busy with the new Pro Wrestling 101 Live podcast I haven’t had time to write. First order of business is that I won’t be posting here on a daily basis. If I’m doing a live podcast daily, what else will I have to say. From now on I will write a weekly blog here on the site. This way I won’t be rehashing the same stuff. I’m really siked to be doing the podcast. Its fun and exciting. I do it solo with no script. I take calls from fans, and today we had a surprise call from my old friend Scott Hall. If you’re interested you can find the show at www.blogtalkradio.com/prowrestling101wjustincredible . Its live Monday thru Friday at 6 am. Check it out. I will be here on Monday with my thoughts on the WWE Network launch and Elimination Chamber PPV. Live with passion. Own your life.

Good morning. This week on my Justin Credible Report for PWMania.com I mentioned that WWE’s Raw rating was down by 500,000 viewers. Lot’s of people commented on that situation, so I want to go in depth to discuss what I think it means. I’ve been watching the WWE carefully since SummerSlam. Since before that PPV the WWE hasn’t put together a memorable show. The whole Daniel Bryan thing has turned many fans off. Now with CM Punk leaving I’m surprised the ratings drop was not bigger. The WWE has done everything to say to fans, we don’t care what you pay money to see, we will give you what we want to see, and worse of all you’ll like it. This is what happens when there’s only one show in town. Vince & Co can do whatever they want. The only way to fight this is by not tuning in. I hope, because I’m a fan, that the WWE gets it right heading into WrestleMania. I think that the WWE needs to really do it right with the WWE Network coming very soon. It’s going to be hard for me to buy into the Network when their product is that bad. If you haven’t seen this weeks Pro Wrestling 101 it’s up now at www.YouTube.com/polacopeter73 You don’t want to miss it. I’ll be back here tomorrow. Live with passion. Own your life.

Good morning. It’s finally here. Super Bowl weekend. I haven’t been so excited for a football game in a very long time. It’s a dream match up of Payton Manning, and the number 1 offense in the NFL, Denver Broncos vs Richard Sherman, and the number 1 defense in the NFL, Seattle Seahawks. I hope the game is as good as it looks. My pick for the Super Bowl is Denver Broncos 27 Seattle Seahawks 24. The MVP will go to Peyton Manning, as he will throw for 3 touchdowns and over 300 yards. I caught TNA for the first time in a long time last night. MVP debuted for the promotion in more bullshit corny storylines. Why can’t they just tell stories about wrestlers wrestling. Does anyone care if MVP is a special “investor”. Can you imagine if UFC had their fighters involved in this kind of crap. TNA will never get it. They will never out WWE the WWE. I usually like the talent they use on the show, but recently I’m not interested. Magnus EC3 & BroMans not feeling them at all. Anyway thank god for the WWE network. At least I can get my wrestling fix from watching wrestling when it was good. NWA, WWF, ECW I can’t wait. Well have a great weekend. Enjoy the Super Bowl. Go Broncos!!! Live with passion. Own your life.

Good morning everybody. There has been a ton of speculation about CM Punk and the WWE. Many are wondering if this latest departure is a work. Personally I don’t think so. WWE is catering to a large, kid friendly, market. The majority of WWE fans aren’t on wrestling dirt sheet sites looking for the latest news. It would be silly to cater to such a small number of fans who ultimately always watch whatever WWE puts out. I really believe that CM Punk is worn out, and tired. The WWE is a pressure cooker. I have always been amazed at guys who can manage to stay on the road for 10 plus years with the company. Not only is it hard physically, but mentally. Punk doesn’t need the money, and probably never needs to work again. It only makes sense for him to leave if he is not happy. It’s not like they are putting out an inspired product. Like I said in yesterdays ramblings, CM Punk is in a unique position to stay away for a while, and pop up six months later in a new promotion. That’s the spark the business needs. Remember in the late 90′s. I was in ECW, and I tuned in to both Raw & Nitro just to see who was jumping ship. You never knew who could pop up on any show. Pro Wrestling is sorely missing those big surprise moments. Could you imagine CM Punk showing up in the main event of a ROH show in Chicago. WOW!!! It’s just a pipe dream, but if I was in that position I would want the challenge of making the business a two horse race. I really think he could do it. That being said Wrestlemania is shaping up to be interesting for all the wrong reasons. I want to take the time to plug some stuff. Pro Wrestling 101 is back for season 3. Check out this great first episode about calling a match in the ring www.youtube.com/polacopeter73 . Also check out my tee shirt store featuring classic wrestling tees at www.prowrestlingtees.com/JustinCredible . One last note I’m making my return to NYWC on Feb 15th in Deer Park, NY. See you back here tomorrow. Live with passion. Own your life.

Good morning. I guess it’s not just the WWE Universe that’s unhappy with the WWE. CM Punk went home Monday. It’s a testament to how screwed up things are right now in the WWE. I have heard for a long time that it’s not a great place to work. Some describe it as walking on egg shells when at TV tapings. I never remember WWE being like that. I enjoyed going to work. When I went back in 2006 it was a little different, but now I hear it’s just no fun at all. The pro wrestling business is a hard one. There is no reason that we can’t work hard and enjoy the process. When guys feel loose they usually have better performances. When every time you go out to wrestle, and you feel that your job is on the line it can be a bit unsettling. I don’t feel bad for CM Punk. He has accomplished more than anyone ever imagined he would. He broke the WWE stereotype of what they look for in a world champ. He should be proud of his work, and he deserves time off. Not to mention it helps when you don’t need the money. Guys like Punk don’t grow on trees. I’m sure he will be back at some point. On the other hand he has the kind of box office name that could really be a game changer if he decided to go else where to wrestle. Could you imagine the buzz if he went back to work for ROH and try to make them a player. The business needs guys like that to become free agents and try to spice this dead business up. Very few have that kind of draw. He’s not a washed up WWE guy. He is a top WWE guy who is still in his prime. That could make a huge IMPACT for a company like ROH, or TNA. I know what people will say next nobody can afford him. Well come in for a % of the pie. If you draw you get paid. Anyway back to reality. That will never happen, but that’s the kind of stuff wrestling needs right now. The business is dying a slow death. I just hope that something breaths some new life and new ideas into the sport of kings. Until tomorrow. Live with passion. Own your life.
