Hi I'm Chris Pena, known by many as Crispy. When I was in middle school I remember the hip thing to talk about between classes was pro wrestling. We would try to reenact the moves of the wrestlers like the diamond cutter, the drop kick, or the stone cold stunner. Many times we were sent down to the principle's office. We would even have games where we would try to name as many wrestlers as possible. I would go home and watch wrestling at home on mondays if I remember right. I would always sacrifice my school work for it. I did that because if you didn't know about wrestling then basically you were not going to have friends and you were not going to be popular, and back then being popular was everything.
Once High School started, I feel like this all went to a hault. Wrestling for me felt like it was jsut a phase, an era, just like Pokemon or yo-yo's. I went several years without watching or speaking about wrestling. Every once in a while I would catch a show or two, but with so many stories, I wasn't able to keep up and so I would quickly change the channel.
When I heard about this class, I realized it was going to be fun because of the context and because it would resurect my childhood memories. So far I have been correct in my hypothesis and I see no reason why that should change. Pro wrestling is fun and exciting, I guess the only reason why I didn't follow it as much after middle school was because I was a follower. But I hope that with this class I will be able to catch up with all the stories that I missed out on and continue with watching it.
