Poke Post: Pokemon Generations Episode 4 – Lake of Rage

This episode of Pokemon Generations focuses on a mission in the Johto games where the player helps Lance and his Dragonite take down Team Rocket and its plant that emits radio waves causing the Red Gyrados to be out of control.

As much as I’ve complained about battling Lance in the past, he’s one of the coolest characters in the Pokemon franchise, so it was cool to see him and his Dragonite get some screen time and kick some tail.

Cody Deaner: Wrestler and hero to Layla

I came across this post on Jason Saint’s Shitloads of Wrestling Tumblr. You can view the pictures there.

This is Layla.

A number of months ago I was approached by a beautiful little girl who had made a Cody Deaner t-shirt into a cute little dress. She told me I was her favorite wrestler and it simply warmed my heart. She’s been at every Crossfire Wrestling show since with Cody Deaner signs and cheering for me faithfully.

This past weekend, I had the privilege of surprising Layla at her birthday party. She was blindfolded, and I got to bring her birthday cake into the room and surprise her. She gave me a huge hug and we sat together with her friends to enjoy the cake that had a picture of us together on it.

I gave her a Cody Deaner camo hat that matched mine as a gift and we took some pictures together with my Crossfire Wrestling Championship belt. The smile on her face says it all.

I wanted to try to write about how great it feels to be able to do stuff like this. But it’s impossible to put it into words. I find myself just simply recounting what happened because thinking of myself as a hero to a kid is difficult, humbling, rewarding, and frankly impossible to put into words.

To my fellow independent wrestlers … don’t sell yourself short. You might be a hero to a child in the audience. Don’t take that for granted. Take it seriously. And realize how important it is to cherish that opportunity.

To Layla … I hope you had a great birthday party! I’m happy I got to be there! We’ll see you in the crowd with your pretty little Cody Deaner dress at the next Crossfire Wrestling show! 👍

Sincerely,
Cody Deaner

There are so many great things about this, but what I love is when he tells his fellow wrestlers, not to sell themselves short and how they might be a hero to a child in a crowd.
