Signed Prints and Tractors
Has your summer been slammed?
I’ve got a stack of signed prints, odds and ends, of people no longer with WWE that I can’t sell anymore due to contractual reasons so instead I think I’m going to give them away. Up to a hundred of them.
All that you have to do is be a paid tier member of this here newsletter and then leave me a comment with what it is about pro wrestling that you love the most:
The paid tier starts at $7 a month and will get you exclusive content, first access to new original paintings, first access to exclusive numbered prints, an exclusive discount for 25% off all prints at Schamberger Labs, and more. I’m not a professional mathematician but that seems like a sweetheart deal for you.
This giveaway is only for people in the United States. Yeah, I know. But I’m not going to go broke on paying for international shipping. No, you can’t send me the money for the shipping because then I’m getting taxed on that. I know. I know. I wish I could be all things for all people but I can’t.
If I get over a hundred comments (a boy can dream!) I’ll select comments at random. One comment per person. Don’t spam me, right? We’re all cool adults here. Like Fonzie. You know what the Fonz is? The Fonz is cool. That’s right.
I’ll select a random signed print for you. If you don’t mind, please also email me separate with your mailing address. Just in case you’ve either never bought from me before or if you’ve moved since then. Don’t email me your address if you haven’t left a comment. I’ll be checking. Give me 2-3 weeks to get these all out.
This is open for the next week, through August 9, 2022.
Okay, now onto the fun stuff: How about SummerSlam, right?
Shortly after Bayley came out, followed by Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky my wife Katy just started crying. I was choked up too but couldn’t articulate why until we started talking about it. First, yeah the WWE product had not been firing on all cylinders for a while now. The new leadership there are clearly showing the early signs of their vision and personally I’m excited for it.
Second, like I’d talked about a couple weeks ago there were shifts happening behind the scenes even before the big changes, and I wasn’t sure if I’d be with WWE going forward. Nothing personal or antagonistic or dramatic, just mundane corporate stuff. But that all worked out and we’re hopefully on a great path moving forward. That said, seeing this exciting show and the stellar reaction its received got us both really stoked to not only still be with WWE but to be with this incredibly thrilling iteration of it.
And then Brock Lesnar drove a tractor to the ring.
Brock and Roman Reigns went to a whole other level. From Roman catching Brock’s microphone to the two beating the bejeezus out of each other to Brock using the tractor to physically lift up the ring, I was losing my dang mind over everything. Our girl cat Kima kept yelling at us for being so loud, even!
And yeah, I agree that I should make a painting of this moment from the end of the match:
Probably my next months-long painting after I finish up this current Undertaker piece.
Overall, it was a really fun show that stepped into being full-on awesome. I feel like pro wrestling as a whole is about to enter another one of those renaissance moments and I think it started last Saturday. How awesome if I’m right, eh?
