“It’s still real to me, dammit!”

From: YouTube

Genre: Internet

Who said it?: David Wills

The story behind the quote:¬†This week’s quote comes from an old viral video involving wrestling. Rather, it comes from a long time fan, David Wills.

David Wills attended at wrestling show which just so happened to have a Q&A section, featuring some old-time wrestling legends like Jim Cornette and Terry Funk. Before the show, Wills managed to get a glimpse of another wrestling legend, Harley Race, having difficulty moving around. This kind of shocked David Wills as he remembered watching “King” Harley Race as a kid and how lively he was then. The wrestling world also was recently stunned with the sudden passing of Eddie Guerrero then.

These two factors affected David Wills as he knows how much wrestlers hurt themselves for the viewers’ entertainment. So, when he was given the mic to ask a question during the Q&A panel, he emotionally delivered the quote.

Geek wisdom: Let people have their fun and like the things they like. You’re not accomplishing anything by spoiling their fun or raining on their parade.
