The Unity Road Writings – Wedding or Wrestlemania?

192 Days to go.

This past weekend I decided to be a little proactive in the process of putting this wedding together. After all, I’ll be very honest, if there was a meter to decipher the amount of work put into making “9.24.11” into a special day, it would read something like this – 70% Tag Team Partner, 30% yours truly. Although, my tag-team partner has very much been excited in doing much of this work, I have held my own. However, honestly, I will never be able to match the level of interest and excitement she has in coordinating it all. She is definitely on a mission. Me? Well, just tell me when we’re boarding for the honeymoon.

So yes, regardless, it is a very embarrassing ratio. However, much to my credit, I have indeed been in every decision so far. Being proactive, well, that’s another story. So with that said, this past Saturday I decided to personally deliver some “Save The Dates” to a couple of my friends.

Ok, ok, not too difficult a task, but hey, it’s a start.

Is this how everyone feels about 9.24.11?

Nonetheless, after personally delivering the card, the reactions from even my closest friends, who were amongst the first to know about our engagement, mirrored that of everyone else – unconditional excitement. Reactions ranged from huge smiles, big claps, approving shaking of the heads, and yes, even a huge bear hug. All reactions that displayed a form of happiness as if they were just let in on some type of secret society. Heck, as if they had found out they punched their bid to March Madness.


And after I delivered the final one and laid my head down on a pillow that night, I  realized that this Wedding is a much bigger deal than the nonchalant approach I’ve been taken thus far. Everyone who has received their “official ticket” have already begun talks of 9.24.11.



I’m bringing my “A” game
It’s the event we are waiting for
This is all we talk about…”
I can’t wait!

All of these quotes are in addition to the many talks of clothing choice, and let’s not forget, everyone’s claim to be losing weight just for 9.24.11. My favorite quote, “I’m going to be in peak shape for that day”.

Huh? What?

DPUnityRoad1
Yes, 'Taker, you can come as well!
I love the enthusiasm and I’m flattered we have such awesome support, but when did my wedding become Wrestlemania?

Along the way, somewhere, somehow, while I’ve been focusing on building a healthy marriage and becoming a better man to lead a household (and one day a family), this evolving ceremony and celebration, that I haven’t been closely monitoring, has now become a main attraction as well.

So suddenly, with-my-soon to be wife continuing her relentless interest, and an enormous supporting and growing contingent from our family, friends, and guests, I suddenly have developed a small fire of interest in 9.24.11.

Who knows? Maybe this week, I’ll take a look at some suits my Tag-Team partner has been urging me to take a look at.

Hey, if 9.24.11 is Wrestlemania, I too must be at my best.

After all, it hit me right before I shut my eyes for bed - I am the main event. Oh boy…

Impact Wrestling OverDrive 2022 Review: "Impact is Toast...You Know What You're Getting"

Impact Wrestling pay-per-views (or special events) in 2022 aren't just the biggest kept secret in the professional wrestling world, but they've also been the most underrated positive within pro wrestling going forward. Much of what Scott D'Amore and company have done this year should be celebrated. The product hasn't always been a must-see, but at the same time, it hasn't been terrible. Impact is toast. You know what you're getting. It's not fancy, but you know what you're getting. And in various forms, it can be amazing.  Bad analogies aside, Impact Wrestling wrapped up 2022 with yet another banger in OverDrive. The mini-big shows have really become a nice touch for the company in moving their storylines along, and at times, allowing the ability to give focus and opportunity to characters and talent to be highlighted. It's been a long road since this company was generating One Night Only shows that meant and felt like, well, impactless.  Nonetheless

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/27/22

3 Up 1. Thomas James & Richard Fierro - Despite the horror of the recent shooting at the Colorado Night Club, I would be remiss if I didn't give props - and the top "Up" spot - to these two gentlemen who not only served our country in the military at one point in their lives, but also saved many more by taking down the shooter at Club Q.  Much respect. Much appreciation.  2. Olivia Pichardo - Does anyone know how difficult D1 baseball is? I don't think many know, understand it, or appreciate it. What Olivia Pichardo has accomplished as a freshmen at Brown University by becoming the first woman to make the roster of a D1 baseball team is damn impressive. She also did it as a walk-on. Wow! 3. Thanksgiving/Holiday Weekend - Whether you celebrated Thanksgiving, or just enjoyed the days off in appreciation of your family and gratitude, I hope the days off were a good one for you and yours.  3 Down 1. Mass Shootings - I can't say anything else on these. They just n

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Life Itself (2018)

Who is in it?  The happenstance and journey of a young New York City couple cause a reverberation of several instances and effects that echos and effects several others through various generations.  What is it about? Oscar Isaac - Will Olivia Wilde - Abby Olivia Cooke - Dylan Sergio Peris-Mencheta - Javier Gonzalez Laia Costa - Isabel Diaz Antonio Banderas - Mr. Saccione Favorite Scene:   The alternate scene from the original bedroom scene between Will and Abby shows a different version of what happened with the exact words used, just a different tone - indicating that life itself isn't the greatest narrator, and we all have our own versions of a story that is possibly part of a bigger story.  Favorite Quote:  "I crave a happy life, grandpa. I have an almost desperate craving for stability and happiness like fat people crave chocolate or lost hikers crave rescue. I want to live a big, great, fantastical life, but I am concerned that the tragedy that seems to follow me, the tra

Survivor Series 2022 Review: "Served it's Purpose" on Thanksgiving Weekend

There was something especially "traditional" about the Survivor Series happening over Thanksgiving weekend that added to the intrigue and the overall aura of the event. Something that felt well, overall anticipatory and "right" for a wrestling event on a Thanksgiving Saturday night (you know, if that's a thing going forward - maybe?). Of course, all of this is ironic considering this Survivor Series event took a break from the historical concept of the 5-on-5 survivor tag-team format for the much more WCW-ish, "War Games". As Triple H (or do we call him Paul, now? Mr. LeVeque? Mr. Triple H? Mr. Helmsley?) noted in the post-show press conference, the break was indeed a nice change of pace, allowing the old format to take a breather and gain some nostalgic interest for the events to come.  Nonetheless, Survivor Series was welcomed and it was a good show. For me, the War Games matches were there and were entertaining. Everyone in those matches felt like t
