It’s kind of the point. There are a lot of things that go into a wrestling show and it can be easy to get sidetracked from the important parts. At the end of the day though, it all comes back to wrestling and that is often overlooked. No matter how you look at it, the whole thing is about what happens in the ring. The people involved seem to love what they do too, and that was on display this week.
WWE is a huge company, but there are still only so many spots to go around. With so many wrestlers on the roster and a limited amount of television time, someone is going to be left off of a lot of shows. That can make for some rather disappointing moments, but some wrestlers have a lot more of them than others. Two of them made those disappointments rather clear.
Monday Night Raw stars Mustafa Ali and Nikki Cross have both sent out tweets talking about how much they want to be in the ring. Ali talked about how it is another WrestleMania where he will not be on the card and promising to be on next year’s show. Ali also says that he is the only one to blame for the problem. Cross said that she has a bachelor’s degree and is working on a masters degree but she only wants to be in the ring and wrestle. Cross’ most recent match came on the February 1 Monday Night Raw and she has only wrestled twice this year. Ali wrestled on this week’s Monday Night Raw, losing to Riddle.
Hundreds of excuses. Hundreds of hurdles and lies. But at the end of the day, it’s on me. No one and nothing else to blame but me. Another year, another WrestleMania that I’m not going to compete in. Nothing has ever been given to me. This is no different. Next year, you’re mine. pic.twitter.com/lbek55kFyH

I got my bachelors. I’m halfway through my masters. I’ll get a PhD if I want to. I’m a qualified personal trainer and gym instructor.
Heck I could teach a spin class if I wanted to.
But I want what I want.
I want to wrestle.
I want to entertain.
It’s what I was born to do.

These are some talented people. Check out what they can do when they are given the chance:
Opinion: This is one of those situations where I do not understand WWE at times. How can they have so many different TV shows and have nowhere to put all of these people? It just seems a little hard to believe that there is nothing that these talented wrestlers can do. Things are hardly going great in WWE with the people they are presenting, so why not see what someone else can do?
