The wrestling world has changed in so many ways, and it’s only going to keep changing as time goes by. The wrestling world has so much talent that it is almost impossible to keep up. Even if a person was to watch wrestling every day of the week, they will still likely miss some talent that has performed.
That’s why I have started doing segments called the Wrestler’s Spotlight. It is a segment that I take great pride in writing 2-3 times a week. Before I was ever a writer, I wanted to be a wrestler, had it all planned and did my homework to train right after I graduated high school.
Life had other plans after I hurt my knee. Even though my dreams changed, I turned to my other passion of writing. My love for wrestling continued to grow. That love turned into wishing that I was more involved with wrestling in some way.
After seeing negative posts by fellow writers and major outlets that were focused on news for the sake of clicks and in some cases, tried to tear down a wrestler with nasty rumors. The positive was a few and far in between.
That’s the thing about wrestling that I have observed, writing can build someone up, and it can tear someone down. It even hit home with a few that I even interact with daily. The number of journalists who take it upon themselves to spread something just for a wrestler to retweet and shoot down a rumor should be enough to show a lack of credibility.
It has been years since I went to school for journalism and to be honest, I don’t have credentials as a degree-holding journalist, but I became a writer. Working on scripts, blogs, and anything creative while gaining my bachelor’s degree in creative writing. I decided to use that to my advantage with blogs.
There are many routes to take creatively and it all started with an actress by the name of Stephanie Andujar who caught my eye with her entertaining YouTube channel StephA: One Woman Show. After the interview with Stephanie, I moved on to interviewing wrestlers.
A wrestler by the name of Shayla Hyde also known to some as Joan King has a way of presenting ideas without even realizing it. As a friend and top support during the earliest days freelancing, she showed support and her support continued when I wanted to branch out on my own.
As time went by, things only got worse with so-called journalists and rumor mills by larger websites. It was time for something to change and it broke my heart seeing it. People read a headlined and determined they had enough of the websites and journalists.
There are so many talented wrestlers who are out in the industry who may not be given the spotlight, because websites opt for juicy gossip, as opposed to focusing on the best part of wrestling that people may or may not know.
That’s where the idea of Wrestler’s Spotlight was taken. It’s a small platform made by me with the hope of showing people five simple questions from the perspective of a fan. These five simple questions and sections are all it takes to get to know them as a competitor in the ring and what makes this individual special as a wrestler.
All the answers will always vary from wrestler to wrestler and it will capture their individual in-ring personalities and how they perform in the ring.
My hope is to spread the messages and display their work so fans may be able to keep up with the best competitors that the independent circuit has to offer. if one fan who may not know them suddenly finds something else positive to watch out for, then it is a success in my eyes.
The goal is to have at least 100 Wrestler Spotlight segments to share wrestlers and display their talent in full glory. Stay tuned only on SocialMediaUncut.com for the next Wrestler’s Spotlight segments to see who is next to have the spotlight shine bright on them.
