The Host’s Soap Box

When the mood strikes, away from Thursday’s podcasts, this will be my place to jump on top of my soap box and post my thoughts on hot topics in the world of wrestling ~Jim

I said hey, what’s going on? ~ 4 Non Blondes

I think it’s safe to say right now, with everything that’s happening, that ‘what’s going on’ is not an easy question to answer.

Maybe it’s easier to answer “where have we been, and when are we coming back?”….well, not really. I’ll be honest everyone, this whole situation in the world today has been VERY hard on me. I have been in varying forms of anxiety & depression for the better part of the past few weeks. The uncertainty of everyday life, the pandemic going on around us, etc. has shaken me up to where (as much as I thoroughly miss podcasting) I just haven’t felt up to sitting down and talking wrestling right now. I sincerely hope that you all can understand and forgive us (particularly me) for this time away.

This hurts. We’ve been working on this show just about every single week for almost the last 6 years. I have loved every episode of sitting down and talking with some of my best friends about the greatest form of entertainment there is in the world. But as so many people have said (and you’re probably sick of hearing) these are unprecedented times.

So unfortunately, I do not know when the next live episode of 3 Count Thursday will be, but there WILL be one at one point. And when we’re finally past all of this stuff, we will be back to our normal weekly schedule. That said, this does not mean that there will be no 3CT content during this period without live shows. Some combination of Ryan/Matt/Tim/Intern Mark will be recording some content to get out to you guys on here & our podcast feed. Also, we will be posting our WrestleMania 36 predictions on Saturday afternoon before Night 1 of the big event, so be on the lookout for that on both our Facebook and Twitter pages.

Also, while I am at it, can I quickly address the WrestleMania situation? Yes….it sucks. The whole situation right now sucks. I know that there are so many people who are completely disinterested in watching WrestleMania from a small empty building, and to be honest I don’t like that it’s happening in that setting either, but I do commend WWE and their superstars/staff for continuing on during this hard time to entertain us. I am looking forward to watching the show, as I have with RAW/SmackDown/NXT/AEW Dynamite, because it provides a much needed distraction from the scary world/news right now. So for those, like me, who will be watching WrestleMania this weekend…I hope we all can enjoy it (and not be too critical, all things considered).

I just want to thank each and every one of you who have ever listened to our show, interacted with us on social media or at a wresting show, and continue to stick with us during this challenging and uncertain time. We love all of you for your support and truly hope that all of you and your families/friends are staying safe and healthy at this time. We talk to you all again soon.

Wash your hands.

-Jim
