Welcome to the third and final part of the SJM retrospective. I’ve talked about how it started, how it grew, and now, I’m going to talk about the end of the active Campaign.
Survivor Series was a big influence on me and my decision to end it. I can remember the PPV like it was yesterday. I think what happened that night had a great impact on me, because I saw it unfold live.
But let me back up a bit. I’m not one to believe wrestling “news” or “newz” sites, as they’ve come to be called. Most of the time, they report baseless rumors and innuendo. I did a great job of ignoring the rumors that spread over the fall about JoMo’s status with the WWE and whether or not his contact was expiring. There were also lots of rumors about whether or not he was leaving. The rumor sites are extremely unreliable, but many took and still take them as truth. I began to spend a lot of time trying to convince people of that and it was one of the major hurdles the Campaign had to face. Many people started to believe it wasn’t worth the work because “he’s not staying anyway.” Fans were giving up before they knew for sure what would happen.
I remained positive until Survivor Series. The aftermath of that match created a stunning visual changed my mind. I think that wrestling is often experienced in terms of memorable moments and matches. The image of Morrison walking away instead of staying to fight after the match will remain in my memory of that night. It was at that moment I knew the rumors were true. He was done and leaving the next week.
It was then I knew the Campaign was over as well. I spent the next week sick in bed and absolutely miserable. It hated ending it, but it was right. It was time. I stopped the Campaign with an (rather angry) article, but interestingly, people didn’t listen. They kept talking on Twitter, using the hashtag, and leaving comments on the Facebook page. I’m really glad they didn’t listen.
So, after seeing this, I asked around to see if people would like to see SJM continue as a discussion group. I got a very resounding “Yes!” But I decided to scale back and eliminated the Twittion and Tumblr. The Facebook page became the main meeting place for the group, instead of Twitter, which is now used for FB group announcements. I wanted to change SJM’s name, but after a group gets 100 likes on Facebook, you can’t change the name. I didn’t want to create a new group and lose members in the transition, so I decided to keep the name.
I liked the fact we’ve been able to change and adapt. I never expected we’d last a year, but here we are and we’re still growing. I intend to keep the discussion group up as long as necessary or wanted. And it we ever need to bring back the active Campaign, we will do that as well. That’s a promise.
