That is why the NFL and NBA and Major League Baseball
have coaches. They all have pre-season training and those
who do best in practice play the games.

Entertainment is the most competitive business in the world.
Even Steven Speilberg returned to college for training in
film-making.

In Wrestling we take a test every week and receive our grade.
The ratings tell us what the fans are buying and what they are
not buying.

Marketing figures likewise give us a good indication of what
the wrestling fans are buying.

Reported buy rates for Pay Per View give us the same indication
as does Arena paid attendance. All of these combined give
wrestlers their grades.

Ad the present time the grades are not so good.

Where Have All Our Heroes Gone?

Is Pro-wrestling in a Slump?

In wrestling we have the ability to hit a home run in the last of the
ninth to win the game (Create a Hero) and we can do it every time
yet we seldom do.

In wrestling everybody wants to be the "Bad Guy" at a time when
our country is thirsting for a good guy, not a token good guy but
one that can really kick someone's ass.

To be more specific, a young fresh talent, a new Hero that can
kick someone's ass.

If it were not for the bad guy, there would be no reason for the "Hero."

But at a time when our country is crying for a "Hero," everybody wants
to be a "Bad Guy."

Hey, Here's a "Good Guy." He is a real "Hero."
