In a shocking turn of events which has left millions of Indians in a mixed state of emotions, Sachin Tendulkar has decided to retire from cricket.  Everyone, including the media and the pan-wala right at the edge of the road seems to be talking about this sad turn of events.

In a news conference called right next to his lavish home in Mumbai, Sachin said:

“I am pretty happy to announce that I have retired from the game of cricket but I will continue to play the Googly and bouncers as a member of Rajya Sabha. I have become bored of playing on the same pitches again and again, so I thought it’s only wise to move on to a new pitch in New Delhi where  I can compete with new rivals.”

Sources have confirmed that the real fans are happy to see Sachin move onto a new phase, but a section of the media and the population in general has been deeply affected by his decision. Here is some talk that has been going around the media and cricket circles, revealed exclusively for the readers:

TV Channels:  There can never be another Sachin, as his retirement speculation and criticism for lack of runs scored was what had sky-rocketed our TRP ratings. How will we earn money and fame now?

Cricket Fans ( Anti-Sachin) :  There can never be another Sachin as his age and no shows were what helped us spice up our lunch and tea-time gossip. How will we pass our time or claim to be an expert who knows everything now?

Critics ( Anti-Sachin Reporters ): There can never be another Sachin, as we will have no one to criticize or pass our judgments about which helped us increase our Facebook or Twitter followers. How will we get our salaries now?

Mahendra Singh Dhoni: There can never be another Sachin, as his retirement rumors had kept the focus of the blood sucking journalists away from my captaincy in One Days and Test Matches. How will I dodge them now?

Virendra Sehwag: There can never be another Sachin, as the comparisons made between him and me, despite me not scoring runs so many times, have been the shining points of my career. How will I  keep up with my fame now?

Real Sachin Fans: There can never be another Sachin as not only was he the greatest batsman to ever play, but he also was the sole reason we started watching cricket in the first place. How will we ever fall in love with cricket now?

All in all ,no matter who we are, to its ardent followers in the country, cricket will never be the same when Sachin retires.

Really, Really, Really!

FLASHBACK:
WrestleMania XXVII: The Rock & Stone Cold Steve Austin are called upon.
Over the Limit: Bret Hart is summoned
Capitol Punishment: Again Stone Cold
Next Week:  Shawn Michaels is back.

Isn't it looking like in every episode of WWE RAW there is almost one Hall of Famer being called upon to market their show? I just wonder!
On top of it, it was announced that CM Punk will be leaving WWE come 17th July.

Really Really Really!

There is a catch somewhere in this announcement or if it is true, I am sure WWE ratings will drop down considerably. The reason being simple:
There are only 3 Major Superstars present at this time in WWE which can carry the show singlehandedly on their shoulders: John CenaRandy Orton and CM Punk.

I have come from a time when I have seen superstars like Bret HartShawn Michaels, UndertakerStone Cold Steve AustinTriple HRock :STARS who carried WWE to a different level and made it a global phenomenon (and to think there were no Facebook, Twitter at that time!) . You  look at these Hall of Famers and realize that people were hell crazy about them, there were no trash talks, those were the times when historic rivalries were made (Bret Hart-Yokuzona, Undertaker –Mankind and so many others). The mere presence of one of these athletes in the arena made you feel overwhelmed.

Come today-you see around: You see stars like MizAlex Riley, Alberto Del Rio and so many others. These are good wrestlers but not someone who can meet the standards of their predecessors. They had charisma, authority, respect and fear in the eyes of their rivals as well as audience (If it was not the case, why would WWE keep on falling back to them to up their ratings? Interesting-Right)

Currently the only three players who I find even close to the Hall of Famers are: John Cena, Randy Orton and CM Punk.And to take away CM punk would be to deplete the already thin line of mega superstars, a disastrous move for WWE; something Vince McMahon will be fully aware of. In my opinion, it is just a story line being used to generate emotional interest amongst people. The message on twitter by Punk was the same he reported on live journal in 2005- when Ring of Honor was supposedly his last match and rest we all know is history.

CM Punk is amongst the most entertaining and charismatic personality in WWE. If he is allowed to leave, there will be only one superstar left in Raw and one in Smackdown. He has a big list of loyal followers (around 5 million followers on social media sites and so many others) and to lose them would be a huge business loss for WWE.

WWE cannot keep falling back on past Hall of famers to carry it around. They need superstars like Punk and rivalry like PUNK-CENA to go into history books. In my opinion :this is just a part of story line that writers have created and very soon who knows on 17th July or in Summer Slam- we might hear  “You have just been PUNKed”
