Ok, I’m honestly quite surprised that you’re reading this blog. I mean it’s not like I’ve been as regular as I wanted to be in posting these little snippets of my wrestling life. What can I say?
The least I can do is fill you in on why I haven’t kept you all updated…..
So to recap, I’ve been having some work trouble at my now former job. I won’t go into details and I’m not going to bash them on a public forum either, but it became pretty clear that our working relationship was drawing to a close.
Instead of waiting until the bitter end (Hi there Pete Dunne) where working relationships would have crumbled, I took the leap and left. I had some savings to keep myself and my family afloat for a few months, just had to find a new job…..quickly.
So any free time I had was spent on scouring job sites on available placements in and around my area. I had no time to watch any NXT, NJPW or any other promotion (apart from SEPW naturally) let alone write about my weekly exploits at the Academy. From the moment I woke up in the morning to the moment I crashed late at night, I was looking for work.
Luckily I didn’t need to wait too long, about two and a half weeks, I was asked to join a national supermarket as a grocery delivery driver. The hours are less than what I was on, the money is better (much better, with a pay rise in October too), I’m not permanently stressed out and taking it out on my nearest and dearest…..it was an obvious win win situation!
So with a couple of days induction behind me, and a few days in the store classroom to learn about fire safety and such like to look forward to this week, I now have some free time to catch you all up……if indeed you’re still there.
I know my new years resolution (one of them at least) was to keep you all in the loop much more than what I did, but I’m hoping you kinda forgive me for this.
Yes wrestling is one of my major loves in my life, but I’m a married man with a family to support and they will always come first. So I buried my head into finding work before letting you all know. Sorry, I truly am, but as I said, I hope you can forgive me.
Now with that out of the way, I’m not going to bombard you with 4/5 blogs in a few days to let you catch up. To be honest, I’ve lost my notes and would be relying on my memory….which is a dangerous thing.
So instead, in a day or two, I’ll be posting a compressed edition of my blog with highlights, big news and announcements and anything else that is newsworthy for you guys, from the last 4/5 weeks.
Even with all the upheaval in my working life I still attended training at the Academy every Sunday. I still tried to hold my own each and every week and keep up with the amazing boys and girls there.
So that’s it really. Again I really hope that you all stick with not just me, but with SEPW as big things are happening and I’ll give you a few little teasers right now:
Hustle & Heart II (Academy students show)
All will be revealed in my compressed condensed blog. Look out for it, I promise you’ll enjoy it 😉
