My Thoughts: Great go-home for the PPV. Looking forward to the Pay Per View. On a different note, I have a direct challenge for my detractors. Tell Steve Gerweck and myself intelligently why I am a bad writer for the site. If it’s intelligent, you might get your wish. After almost 30 years of being a fan and 13 years experience in the business, I’m not gonna be driven away by simpletons. I refuse to just walk away. Steve, thank you for getting me back in a business that I gave my life to. For Steve Gerweck and the rest of the site, this is “The Real Deal” Billy Rouse. I will continue to make lemonade out of chicken crap and leave people wondering how I do it.
