On to 2019!
Well, that’s yet another year in the Pro Wrestling X history books. Soon we’ll be measuring in decades! It’s been one of the most challenging years we’ve ever had in a lot of ways. While on one hand we have the most talented crew I could ever ask for, on the other hand I didn’t have the funds to put them to work full time so progress was slower than the previous year. The progress we did make with development was epically encouraging, though.
Our intrepid lead programmer introduced new features that I wouldn’t have dared dream possible just a few years earlier. And our lead artist continued to consistently crank out more and more AAA art the likes of which I STILL can’t believe the good fortune of having. Eric the Web Nerd kept you all up to date and informed by becoming Eric the Twitch Star!
I can’t thank this crew enough. They literally turn our wrestling game pipe dreams into reality one baby step at a time. Like steady and relentless drops of water eroding a formidable damn that is on the brink of crumbling. Is this the year the damn breaks and we ride the wave? I can’t predict the future. But I can guarantee that I will continue to show up each and every day to add whatever drop of water I can to this bitch until it does.
I want to wish each and every one of you the very best 2019. I have a feeling it’s going to be all sorts of bat shit crazy for all the right reasons. Changes will be made. New courses will be set. Giant scary risks will be taken. So rest up because it’s time time to burn some things down to make room for the bigger and better. Maybe it’s the growing sense of nothing-to-lose that comes with aging and surviving so much shit. The loss of respect for doing things the “proper way”, waiting your turn, and worrying about your so-called reputation among those who really don’t matter when all is said and done.
Pro Wrestling X started out with both middle fingers raised high in the air. Against all odds, naysayers, and conventional industry wisdom, we broke rules and pushed this boulder up the mountain together. You guys have had our backs from day one and encouraged us to keep pushing. But you were never blind fanboys. You always called us on our bullshit and held us to account. Thank you for that. You became an army. A family. Our crew. This world will never beat us down or tame us. We got this.

In the meantime and in between time, that's it, another edition of Wrestling Gamers United.
