There is a semblance of paying your dues by setting up the ring, having ACTUAL wrestlers bump you around, working your way to the ring by being a referee, manager or what have you and then being a guy who gets squashed, killed, crushed, etc. Then meandering your way onto a show. It used to happen a while ago, but in all actuality, that is when the wrestling end of it wasn't as high flying or high impact as it is today (in no way meant to mean "easier").
I see backyard kids who do ring crews and pre shows and what not all day long. They think they know what they're doing, think that they are doing things the "old school" way, when all you're doing is making the boys in the back laugh because 90% of what you do is ridiculous. Sometimes you can get pops, most of the time you can't. It's the equivalent of knowing a good street joke and calling yourself a comedian.
What these kids fail to realize is that these guys who "bumped around in the ring" normally also carried bags for actual wrestlers, drove them between shows, spoke about the business to them, asked questions and asked for help.
"Bumping around in the ring" and calling it paying your dues is ridiculous. Go to a school. Get trained. You don't know what the fuck you're talking about.
This has been a morning rant. Have a good day.
