John Striker’s Your Host For Pillar To Post

May 28, 2009 · Print This Article

Greetings and salutations humble reader, and welcome to another masterpiece that is Pillar to Post. As always, I am your guide to greatness, John “Your Guide to Greatness” Striker! Let’s get down to business….

Exciting Times Abound
How exciting have the last few CLASH shows been? How awesome are the next few shows going to be? The answer to both questions is the same: “super freaking exciting!” I feel like For the Win may top the CLASH’s biggest event to date, Seize the Day II. The card is shaping up to be one hell of a show, and even I am unsure what’s going to be left standing when the dust settles. If that wasn’t enough, there’s a free show coming up THIS SATURDAY at Heritage Park in Taylor at 10:00 PM. You can’t beat that! CLASH tickets are a bargain regularly but now they’re cheap as free? Unbelievable! And if all that excitement wasn’t enough, we’ve got the Second Annual NPCI Tournament taking place on the 19th and 20th. If you’re a fan of tag team wrestling, and who isn’t, then you need to be there. If you’re not a fan of tag team wrestling, you will be.

Speaking of Tag Teams
I have to say that I’m a little disappointed in my pick to be new CLASH Tag Team Champions, Nightlife. Maybe I miscalculated by making my prediction based on what I perceived to be the determination of Nightlife, instead of properly calculating all of the variables. Who would have known that CEO Jeremy Jones would have stopped B from cheating his team to victory? Oh well, that’s the breaks I guess, even I can be wrong once and a while. Of course, I mean to take nothing at all away from the Friends, even though “Between the Crosshairs” can only aspire to match “Pillar to Post”. In my mind right now, there is no better tag team that the Friends. At the NPCI Tournament, we’ll get the opportunity to see if they can prove it. I know a lot of people in this business and I can tell you there is a lot of excitement from wrestlers the world over looking to prove their worthy by winning the NPCI Tournament. Unfortunately for them and fortunately for fans of good wrestling, there can be only one winning team. I know I can’t wait to find out who it is.

On a quick side note, what the heck is Nicholas P. Clashertone’s position with the company these days anyway? I thought he sold everything to the man who signs my paycheck, Mr. Jeremy Jones. Now he thinks he can just pen a few columns and act like they’re better then mine and everyone’s going to just accept it. I believe that good ole Nick sold the company off because he wasn’t committed, because he wanted to go buy ice cream shops and sing in the rain or who knows what. Running a company that is in a huge growth cycle like CLASH isn’t a part-time job. As such, I propose that we update the name of the tournament to the JJI – Jeremy Jones Invitational. I’m just saying!

Broken Nose = Broken Will?
So I wouldn’t have believed it if I didn’t see it, but Wreckingball’s nose was certainly not located on his face where one would expect to find a nose. J. Miller’s wrestling in the ring is usually a masterpiece but in the brutal and extreme match he had against Wreckingball, Miller paid homage to Picasso, only using Wreckingball’s face as his canvas. Was that Cubist reference a bit much? Aspire to greatness I always say! But I digress: Wreckingball shocked me yet again when, at Friday Night Furry, he seemed very hesitant to step into the ring against Miller. Again, I don’t want my meaning to be misconstrued, I am not condemning Wreckingball. I wouldn’t step into the ring with Miller without a broken nose, yet alone a broken one. I’m just surprised that Wreckingball was able to control and contain his anger and hatred. Could it be that this feud is over, and that cooler heads will prevail? I sure hope not, because I, for one, cannot wait for these two to lock horns one more time!

Ace High Revisited
Card players have a strange tradition of standing and walking in a circle around their chair when things aren’t going their way. I guess the theory is that any change is better than no change, and maybe just walking one way or another around your chair will somehow bring you lucky cards. It’s like a strange deviation on Chaos Theory. It seems to me that Cameron Skyy has circled his chair. He tried and tried and still could not dethrone champion Dragon Kreed. Some change is better than no change and if your current strategy isn’t working, you’ve got to try something new. Enter the Ace High we saw at Friday Night Theory. Ace High wasn’t his boastful, confident self. He wasn’t the guy the fans love to cheer. He wasn’t that white washed, house on a hill, beacon of light he used to be. He wasn’t a lot of things he used to be, that he usually is. What he was, however, was what he needed to be. He was what he had to be, what the situation demand he be. Adam Summers and the fans can call Ace cowardly and a turncoat and anything else they want. What they fail to realize is that Ace High is, above all else, not stupid. He has a plan, he’s executing it. You don’t have to like it, but right now it’s his best shot to getting back the CLASH Heavyweight Championship.

I’ll quote Tracey Lawrence, an artist Mr. Jones introduced to me, to sum up the situation as it stands now:

“Everybody wants to slap your back
wants to shake your hand
when you’re up on top of that mountain
But let one of those rocks give way then you slide back down look up
and see who’s around then
This ain’t where the road comes to an end
This ain’t where the bandwagon stops
This is just one of those times when
A lot of folks jump off”

Ace High Cameron Skyy is doing what it takes to get back on top of that mountain. If he has to get some people off the bandwagon, that’s what he’ll do, and I applaud him for having that courage. It takes a man to give up fortune and popularity for the sake of your personal goals and accomplishments. If you’d have asked me last month I’d have told you Ace High was incapable of defeating Dragon Kreed. Now, however, it’s a whole new ballgame. Play on!

That’s all she wrote, I hope (and know) you enjoyed your brief glimpse into my mind. Be absolutely sure to come down to Heritage Park this Saturday for the CLASH Carnival, fun times, a free show, and Cancer defeating inspiration. If you’re not there, you ‘aint no friend of mine! Until Saturday then, I’m John Striker.
