Yet again I’m a full week behind on Inktober. I’ll need to start making these things less elaborate. Anyways, for day 7, I chose Trish Stratus. The WWE women’s division was already on the rise, but she really put it on the map. She was a great champion, she had a really interesting heel turn, and was and still is beloved by a ton of the people who were around. That “divas” era is definitely a stand out. She had some great competitors to help give her some pretty great matches. She was sexy, yet still had the athletic ability to actually look like a top competitor.
I missed an entire week of Inktober, but I'm still in it. For my 5th entry, I decided to do the Rhodes family. It was originally supposed to be a tribute to the terrific match they had at Battleground last week, but I was too busy. I've always loved Cody Rhodes. He pulls the heel angle very well, and he could also do great baby face. His in-ring skills are so cool to watch. Dusty is still one of the best wrestlers with a mic in his hand. He's amazing at winning you to his side. Goldust was such a bizarre, but awesome guy to watch back in the Attitude era. His whole persona was so off-putting, but then he gets in that ring and just turns it up. Go Rhodes Dynasty.

For Inktober day 4, I just had to do Randy Savage. He was the only dude who had the personality and skill to be as large as the Hulkster. Their tag team and subsequent rivalry was so awesome to watch. I was always more of a Macho Man guy. Ohhhhh YEEEEAAA!
For Inktober Day 3, I had to draw Bam Bam Bigalow. He’s one of my all time favorites. This dude was over 300 pounds and still moving around the ring as if he was Shawn Michaels. His finisher was a Moonsault from the top rope! I don’t think there’s been anyone as athletic as him at that size since.

For #Inktober this month, I'm gonna focus on some of my favorite pro wrestlers. Rick Flair was before my time, but I'd always checkout old matches of his when I could. His skills on the mic were undeniable. And I loved the brash, arrogant, flashy young gun coming in and just taking over. Plus, he's also a local boy.
