I know this isn't "wrestling news" for most but we do feel it's worth a mention.
John Glick, twitter name @WWEsBiggestFan, announced today he will break his own "streak" if you will after 37 consecutive PPVs in which he attended ringside. We thought that this was an impressive (and expensive) achievement especially after he broke his leg a couple of months ago and he posted the following to his Facebook page:
"The PPV Streak... Is over. Survivor Series 2011 to Survivor Series 2014
All good things must come to an end. Tonight, for the first time in over three years, I will be watching a WWE Pay Per View from home. As most of you know I have sat ringside at 37 consecutive WWE pay per views. I’ve been putting off writing this for as long as possible. However, it is finally time to realize that it’s over. The first thing I want to make clear is that this has nothing to do with my broken leg. Around six months ago I was starting to tell people that I thought Survivor Series may be the end. The first PPV of the streak was Survivor Series 2011 so I thought it would be cool to finish where I started. I’m aware that 37 is a weird number to end on. However, one thing I learned early on in the streak is that there’s never a good time to end it. If I went to 40 then that is the show before Wrestlemania. That automatically becomes 41 at Wrestlemania. There’s just never a good time. When I broke my leg a month ago I refused to sit home from Survivor Series and let that end the streak. I know I shouldn’t have gone, but I did. I wanted to end the streak on my terms. That’s what I’m doing.
The PPV streak was never planned. I went to Survivor Series 2011, TLC 2011, and Royal Rumble 2012. I remember having a conversation with 2 of my best friends over pizza. I told them my goal was to do every PPV in 2012. I had no idea if it was something I could actually accomplish. I had no clue at that time what it would turn into. I accomplished going to every PPV in 2012 but then I had to go to Royal Rumble 2013. If I was doing that and Wrestlemania 29 was two months away I might as well go to Elimination Chamber too. It just kept going and going and going. As I said, never a good time to end it.
Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, John Cena, and Vince McMahon himself all knew of the streak. Vince said it was ‘impressive.’ Triple H couldn’t believe it and had to ask questions. John Cena always had a way of keeping up with what number I was at. Multiple times before his match he would scream to me from the ring and ask how many I was at. When I hit 30 he screamed, “30 right? 30??” as he held up a three with one hand and a zero with the other. Lol. My last show I went to was Raw the night after Survivor Series. He asked me about my broken leg and asked if he was going to see me at the next PPV. I told him probably not and that the time had finally come. He responded with, “37 right? That’s quite the accomplishment my friend. Congratulations.”
I’m not going to lie. It’s hard. I knew all along that the day would eventually come. I knew it was going to be hard but had no clue how I would feel when the day actually came. That day is here and I can honestly say, it sucks. Lol. It’s very very hard to give up something that has consumed me so much for three years. So many times this week (and even once today) I pondered changing my mind about ending it. I know it’s probably hard for a lot of people to completely understand. I know how fortunate I am. I know a lot of people do not get the opportunities that I have gotten. I feel very blessed and am thankful that I have gotten to do all of the things I have."
