Stadium speaker: A wonderful evening dear wrestling fans and a warm welcome here in the ACW sports park I like to compare wrestling with… …a musical, but without the music. Wrestling is about tension. It’s about different characters and their interaction. Old-school wrestling worked like this: Babyface was clearly the good guy. He fought the bad guy, Heel. In wrestling, the good guy always tries to convince through performance and to play by the rules. Heel always tries to achieve the most with the least effort possible. The bad guy always tries to push you down, so you can’t succeed. But through your power and faith in yourself one is able to overcome the bad guy and stay on top. Eventually, the good will triumph. You cheer for your hero, you want him to win. If something unfair happens in wrestling, it relates to your real life. Because in your real life, unfair things happen, too. And you dont want your hero to suffer from the same things. Basically, you want him to achieve everything. Because if he can achieve it, you can do it as well. I think wrestling teaches important values. Like, if I tackle my goals, I can achieve them. In wrestling, the world is simple. It’s easy to distinguish between the good and the bad. And that’s not always that easy in reality. Because a lot of the things people told you recently, like this is good, this is the best turned out to be a scam in the end. In recent years, wrestling has changed. The old school babyfaces aren’t appreciated that much any more. Instead, the edgy, rough guys are popular. A lot of people might think it’s uncommon to have a guy in reality who always smiles. Nowadays it’s more common to stick to someone with whome I can identify. And most of the time that’s someone who does it their way and who succeeds this way. That has to do with the society, it changes every few years. These days, credibility is the main issue in our society. The crowd has to accept you. You need to be a credible character, and they have to like you the way you are. The most important thing in wrestling is not whether you are seen as good or bad. The most important thing is that you are being seen at all.
