A Little Memory That I Will Never Forget


I am never quite certain how to process someone’s death of which I enjoy their work. And occasionally the fandom will grow through stories and having a chance to interact with that person yourself. Saturday night, after my wife and I finished Wonder Woman for a date night, it was the first time we looked at our phones, and the news of wrestler Brodie Lee’s death is the first thing on my timeline. So, I wanted to share a story that I will always have in my heart that involves wrestling and Brodie Lee.

I just began dating my wife in early summer of 2015. And after the events of our first 4th of July together, I decided to watch some wrestling to end the evening. She at the time was not a fan, she knew of wrestling, but living around Memphis, it’s kind of weird if you have not heard of wrestling. The show was a special on the WWE network coming from Tokyo Japan. Specials on the network were rare so anytime a chance to watch one presented itself, I was there on my couch, eating some popcorn.

The first match on this card would become one that I would never forget. Not because it was a five-star classic, but because of my wife. The match would be between Dean Ambrose (Jon Moxley) taking on Luke Harper (Brodie Lee.) No stipulations just a one-on-one match between two people wearing tank tops and blue jeans.

And this where it begins. My wife confused by their attire asked if they were just two random fans who jumped in the ring. A small piece of me wanted to be a smart ass and run with that statement. But I didn’t. I instead sat down to explain their characters. She is still giving me a confused look. “But why don’t they have wrestling outfits?” I was not sure how to process that. And the rest of that match, we talked about difficult it is to move around freely in blue jeans. And throughout the years, we look back on that moment and laugh. Brodie Lee became a favorite in our household. My wife may have thought he was a fan at first but grew to really appreciate him as a performer.

The wrestling world is mourning the loss of someone who was bigger than life. A family is grieving the loss of a son, husband, and father. With everything going on in the world, please appreciate the little things.

I am Richard and I have a problem. A problem with entertaining people. I have been in the comedy world for over 10 years. I started out as an improv actor making fun and light of everything. Doing that felt rewarding, but I have to admit, I wanted more. I couldn’t get the taste of performing out of my mouth. Does that not sound a little creepy? I decided to start doing my own stand up show. I love to make fun of my family and anything that will make a normal person say what the fuck. The journey still continues, in 2009, I had a dream to create my own online magazine. This is the beautiful corner of craziness in front of you. I have been through hell in my life but being stopped is something that I will not let happen. I am a fighter and hope to make people realize it is ok to smile and think from time to time. It also helps being a nerd.
