Sellout Sam

Three-time Indycar champion Sam Hornish returning back to series this time behind the booth. Truth, I could careless if he returned back to driving Indycar. I can't help how much he's a sellout to NASCAR. If he returned back 3-5 years ago I would have welcome back in open arms. I used to be Sam Hornish fan. His drives reminded me one of my favorites Rick Mears. Methodically race the track and strike when it matters. He 2000 version of the ovalmeister. He was amazing on the ovals. He gave remaining Indycar fans hope during that time. Then he went NASCAR in 2007 and stayed there til since. There were times Indycar fans wanted him return especially when he didn't have a ride due to sponsorship woes. What did he do? Spend times in the sidelines and NASCAR garages hoping for another break. What hurt Indycar fans he said he rather be tester in NASCAR than having a ride in Indycar. It was enough to be label a sellout to Indycar fans as I wash my hands clean from this guy. Enjoy the booth, but don't expect me, this fan, to welcome Sam Hornish back to Indycar.

Sammy Basura

Best ever shithead in indy wrestling.
"You're trash!"  That's one of chants I hear from a fan who attends ACW and IPW shows. A chant reserved for dastardly heel wrestlers. That chant is reserve for wrestler who did something beyond stupidity outside the ring. His name Sammy Guevara or Sammy Basura (that's trash in spanish) I shall call him. Claiming to be "best ever" the guy has talent even you take away his backyard flips. But he also has attitude of cocky, self-absorbed idiot. The guy lived the gimmick because that is really him in real life. Everywhere he went he burned bridge after bridge with that attitude. The guy is Texas version of Teddy Hart.

One of his biggest burning moments happened months ago. Wrestling for San Antonio's based River City Wrestling he was given a platform to perform with a rocket pack strapped his back making of name of himself. How did he thank them? He shoot on them at IPW Clash at the Bash in middle of the ring catching RCW by surprise. Not only he burned that bridge on a fed that made him, but made IPW look bush league as RCW cut ties with them. At last IPW show Justin Bissonette gave him Flair/Carlito shoot talk in middle of the ring hoping it gets in his head. Apparently it never did.

Last week San Antonio's Aqua Man died. Around San Antonio he's well-loved for his charity contributions and being a strong fighter. Even my buddy from there Ed (not a wrestling fan) told me what he done down there and how he touched everyone's heart. Aqua Man was family to everyone in San Antonio including River City Wrestling. As friends and family offer condolences and memories of him Sammy Basura decide stir up drama with his post on Facebook.

Wrestling career suicide in 1..2..3..

This low blow post caused hurt to family, friends, and colleagues. It didn't take long for feds from entire state of Texas blackball him including feds from outside the state lines.

Sammy Guevara is truly basura. I don't care if he's playing character there's this line you don't cross and he crossed it in one biggest beyond idiot things to say. Like Teddy Hart the guy have talent in the ring, but found idiot ways to ruin his wrestling career.

Sammy Guevara wrestling career
I feel bad for IPW. Due to Sammy Basura actions they have broken relationship with RCW and forced to vacate J-crown title.

If there's a book on how and not conduct yourself in wrestling while starting out there's two names: Barrett Brown and Sammy Guevara. On how conduct yourself is Barrett Brown who taken his lumps, learned, be well-grounded, and respectful. On how not to conduct yourself is Sammy Guevara, a loudmouth punk burying and stabbing those in the back that helped him out.

My Name is Vexx, V-to-the E-Double X

Shawn Vexx calling it a career
"Allow me to re-introduce myself my name is Vexx, V-to-the E-Double X. I enter the ring to the max. I throw down slams so I can be champ of A-C-W, Vexx." - lyrics changed from Jay-Z - My Name is Hov

After his match against Masada at ACW From Innocence to Insanity Shawn Vexx got on microphone calling it a career ending long journey of Infamous one in the rings of Anarchy.

Mainstay of ACW, Shawn Vexx is one of hardest working wrestlers giving it his all throwing down slams feuding and having wars with Darin Childs, A.C.H., Davey Vega, and Evan Gelistico. His entrance one of the best getting fans pumped up before his match. Throughout the way he battle through adversary in and out of the ring yet he popped back up ready to battle in the ring. Throughout it all he became a champion becoming two-time ACW heavyweight champion, a TV champion, and U-30 Young Guns champion.

Being a wrestling fan is a strange thing. Wrestlers do something horrible getting you invested to boo at them. Later they do something good getting you invested to cheer at them. Shawn Vexx manage get me to do that. I went from a guy that  had "Vexx Must Die" sign during his feud with Davey Vega to "Vexx Lives" sign at 2013 Lone Star Classic battling his way in the tournament. All of this in span of 10 months in between.

I remember the first time watching him for first time. It was 2011 Delusions of Our Childish Days (my first ACW show) and he turned heel at previous show after months of foreshadow. He took on Gregory James in the first match of the show and had decent bout. Later in the show he popped out destroying referee Donny Davis with a chair within few feet in front of me. I was hooked.

I spent 2012 booing him and getting invested in his feud with Davey Vega trying steal Athena from him. During this time he got best out of super fan name Tommy in very fun moment.

In 2013 cheering him on in a battle against Evan Gelistico culminating to first ever steel cage match in ACW history which he took ACW Heavyweight title away from him.

At the end Shawn Vexx enter the ring as a fighter and at the end left as survivor and a winner in front of the crowd. Thank you Shawn Vexx for giving the fans all you got in the ring. In honor of Vexx a familiar Jay-Z classic.

A champ in front of fan's eyes
