Lemus Dos.Com News, Info
“Mi Gente, Mi Raza” what up, hope alls well, it’s a scorcher of a Summer, first & foremost thanks for all your support & of course for supporting Indy wrestling, what can I say never ceases to amaze me every day the Wrestling Biznass gets so disrespected it isn’t even funny.
So a coworker finally say’s “I want to go watch you wrestle” takes his kids excited as can be, he finally gets to go watch “Lemus Dos” in action he has a great time but when the week starts and we’re back at work he says “sorry bro I had fun however it’s going to be a while before I ever go to a show, my son is all freaking out because some idiot clown in face paint resembling a skull goes out of his way to scare my son, I swear to god I was about to knock him on his ass”
How do you think that makes me feel when I hear that? I’m embarrassed ashamed and I have no choice but to say “I’m sorry”
Then again I get a response “Oh I asked around and was told its OK?
Actually NO it’s not; As a dad with kids, would you like it if someone went above and beyond to scare your kid, shit I kick your ass.
95% of everyone in the wrestling business is too Pig Headed to understand this is all business, we are in it to make money, and image is everything.
As it stands 80% of fans are sons bonding with their dads and bringing them to Wrestling the remainder are a cross between teen agers and then the mid older crowds and then of course the seniors who go to the shows and reminisce the old greats Joe Blanchard, Jose Lothario, Lou Thesz.
Years back as a kid I attempted to get an autograph from “Armand Hussein” he yelled get away from me” back then heels didn’t take pictures nor did they speak to fans the baby faces did all that, as a kid I was upset, next show I paid a ticket and booed this guy like there was no tomorrow, that was that era.
In this era you are an entertainer, a fan pays a ticket, you entertain them, image is everything disrespect a fan like this clown did and you’re lucky you weren’t attacked after the show stabbed nor killed. The most proper thing to do is come out, pause, then get into the ring and work the crowd, once you’re in the ring and as customary on the second rope the fans are looking up at you (remember the ring is high) you look larger than life, attempt to work fans from the floor and you look average all of a sudden you’re not interesting if anything they look at your flaws because your so close.
In speaking with the fans we are already at the point where they believe they know everything, they believe that because they paid a ticket their entitled to everything, what they don’t know is your drama your sacrifices your pain and they don’t care, so when you engage the fans, short and sweet, let them voice opinion, never divulge anything or say something bad about other wrestler’s don’t discredit any promotions & don’t sure as hell talk about WWE short sweet, thank them coming, be nice!
Remember things you do, actions, things you say have an impact especially when you’re a wrestler, everyone remembers all the negatives but forget the positives!
In case you don’t know this fans do complain to the promotions and at times to make them happy if you’re not liked because you caught a case of “Stupid Syndrome” you just don’t get booked again and as always no one say’s anything.
While you’re being professional in the ring and doing your job at best don’t forget arrive to WORK on time, dress neatly & your gear has to impeccable!
Lastly; Wrestler’s quit being diva bitches and believing that you’re a draw, that the shows about you, thank those that help elevate you because when all said and done your only as good as your opponent makes you.
Orale Raza Im out thanks for ALL your support, hit me up at the shows!
