The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    yeah they're fun. It's not like the real thing but it's still fun. I used the fact that I write at my school to get backstage and get pictures in the ring.

As it is, it is no longer I myself who do it, but it is sin living in me. I know that nothing good lives in me, that is, in my sinful nature. For I have the desire to do what is good, but I cannot carry it out. For what I do is not the good I want to do; no, the evil I do not want to do--this I keep on doing.

    So I find this law at work: When I want to do good, evil is right there with me. For in my inner being I delight in God's law; but I see another law at work in the members of my body, waging war against the law of my mind and making me a prisoner of the law of sin at work within my members.

    It was the one where Kid Rock performed and the Undertaker made an appearance after a long hiatus. I also went and saw a Pay Per View one with the other wrestling company at the time. I forget the name. Anyways, it sucked big time.

    I believe that's correct, because usually they tape Velocity before Raw.

    Yeah, but they give you some extra matches before if you're actually attending the event.

    Heat is filmed before, and that's 30-40 minutes or so. Then theres usually a segment of 5-10 minutes after the show. Not to mention RAW last's until 11:10 usually, so that all equals 3 hours.

    Raw is two hours long, they tape Sunday night heat before the show, so if you go to see Raw live, you will see heat as well. A house show is about two hours long, but can go three hours.

    It's not a Raw taping, it's a house show with Raw talents. The Raw taping will be in Calgary on the next day.

    IMO House shows suck compared to an actual taping of RAW. If I recall correctly they're basically the same price so if you can catch the live show, you're better off.

    ^^^I would, but our city isn't big enough to warrant a WWE taping, only Vancouver is capable of hosting due having pro sports teams.

    I've attended many house shows and RAW / SD events and let's just say it's different...

    The energy for the RAW/SD events were much higher....

    The house shows normally feature matches that they are "practicing" for the next upcoming feuds... the main event that you will see at your house show will probably be on a PPV the month after...

    The wrestlers goof around alot more and play to the crowd alot... it's pretty cool if you can get close seats... (I was 2nd row for an event... ) I got to heckle Mark Jindrak about needing a gimmick... and my friend gave JBL hell about Ted Debiasy needing his gimmick back...

    Your going to love it man... it's worth it... obviously it doesn't have the flaire of a broadcast event, but that's to be expected...
