"The meeting of two personalities is like the contact of two chemical substances: if there is any reaction, both are transformed." -- Carl Jung, Swiss psychologist
Greetings to all of My Congregation. Your Host of Hosts and Guiding Light has returned, yet again, to enlighten you and shine some light upon your darkened world, even if it's to allow you to see that you are the hideous creature(s) that you thought you were. OK, I'm kidding; you all know that title's reserved for good ol' Balls Mahoney! However, some of you are a close second, especially in Kentucky! (I just vomited in my mouth a little bit.)
Why do folks write to me and ask, "Is this really Elijah?" Who do you expect, some 26-year-old virgin nerd named Andrew? Who else has enough guts to get on here and speak the truth? If I told you the sun wasn't coming out tomorrow, you know to go get a flashlight because it's gonna be one dark day.
So here we go, the Backlash, if you will, over Ric Flair and his retirement match against Shawn Michaels at WrestleMania XXIV. I said last week would be one final Flair, so I won't speak on this much, but I will say this; while I understand Batista's argument, I can only hope that if I'm ever placed in the position Flair was in, I would like to think that I've had such a great and storied career that one would have enough respect for me to do as I've requested by bringing their "A" game. Then I can say that I lost to the absolute best. Looks like our fans are the winners in this one as even I'm intrigued about the outcome.
How awesome was it to see the Four Horsemen return for Flair's sendoff? There will never, and I mean NEVER, be another group, stable, clique or whatever you wanna call it that will ever consist of top, championship-caliber, talented athletes than Ric, Arn, Tully and Barry! The New Breed came close with 75 percent and I made up 72.999 percent of that on my own. Man, I remember when Flair was in the ring crying and the Four Horsemen's music hit. I started crying as well (yep, yet again) during that very emotional moment on Raw. The last time I cried that hard was when Dean Malenko joined the Horsemen and I wasn't rejoicing either.
Speaking of talent (or lack thereof), did anyone see that match on ECW on Sci-Fi last week with ECW Original Tommy Dreamer vs. Colin Delaney? Man, talk about pure and raw emotion. I thought the best part of that match was right before Dreamer planted Delaney with the DDT. He looked down at the kid and said, "Sorry... I Love You!"
In closing, I would like to give a shout out to Cryme Tyme, who recently returned to Raw. Congrats on finally finishing your community service. TIME SERVED!
