Trying something a little different for this week's match as I decided to give the match a bit more meaning then I normally do and just as a way to keep things fresh. Because today I will not just have two matches displayed, but also both will be based on two talents who are celebrating their birthdays today.
One of the names is considered to be one of if not the greatest luchadore of all time and an Icon in Mexico. That man's name is El Santo, for those who don't know this man he was a founding father of CMLL and in many ways the first Mexican wrestler to really reach out of pro-wrestling and become a star in every facet of the word and just life in general. The legacy that Santo has left behind is that of someone who paved the way for basically the way Mexican wrestling is today and deserved to be honored and remember for being an Icon and someone who helped expand the popularity of pro-wrestling passed the ring.
The other name maybe a little broken nowadays, but that's just his way of continue to reinvent himself to stay relevant in the ever changing world of pro-wrestling. That right I guess it's time for some "broken" birthday wishes as today is Matt Hardy's birthday. In all honesty I really thought that once Matt left TNA after his first run that his career in the spotlight was over, but he proved me wrong and though I think his current gimmick is a little too over the top he's making it work and it's doing wonders for his career and TNA.
