The YouTube Restriction Mode and why Wrestling Promotion Channels should not worry

Note: I will have a video on my YouTube Channel explaining this, so if you want to see that, please go to my channel to subscribe:

I should say something about this days ago since Absolute Intense Wrestling posted on Instagram and I am going to say it, so if you are a fan of the indy scene or the three companies, WWE, TNA, and ROH, please read this and share it or if you are watching this on my YouTube channel, please share the video.

I, Lindsie Starr, as a fan of every pro wrestling and a YouTuber, I had know about restriction mode for a few weeks that has been addressed by a fellow YouTuber, Philip DeFranco, who has a lot more subscribers than I do, but, I am not going to hate the man. He state about the situation of restriction mode:

If you are confused about this, Phil has talk about the restriction mode that it is happening to a lot of people like him and others, even though he was pointing out that the whole entire LGBTQ+ community of vloggers like Gigi Gorgeous (transgender/lesbian who does makeup and beauty), Tyler Oakley (gay who does video of any topic of his choice), and others.

However, I don't think any wrestling promoter should be worried as long as their fans are not on restricted mode.

Also, I want to point out that on PWPonderings, a column was on the subject of YouTube restriction mode and the ad ban, which took place last month, due to what it had to do with YouTube not terminating channels that have to deal with terrorism and anything that was not friendly to them, however, this is actually really started back in January, when Wall Street Journal went on a binge of attacks on the most popular YouTuber, PewDiePie, who has well over 54 million subscribers as of me typing this out, stating that he was an anti-Semite, and claims that nine videos he done prove that he is, but, taken the videos out of content, which it is wrong. The videos that they were stating were about how he was frustrated with YouTube. In February, everything fell apart for him, when Wall Street Journal kept attacking him by going to his network, Maker Studios, and push them back to a wall forcing Maker Studios to drop him, despite Maker Studios were going to be dropping a lot of their YouTube creators. I don't know if this prompt ad companies to ban YouTube, but, they are people suggesting it is, even though, there are those who are not friendly.

However, I know YouTube has made changes to their standers of ads that you need well over 10,000 views lifetime and you can check that on the Analytics in the Creators Studio, like I do, due to my video on a subject, I will talk within the next few days. Yes, it's about wrestling.

To wrap up this blog/vlog, I will ask for you to understand that if you are a wrestling promoter out there, who has a YouTube channel, you do not need to worry. As long as you have loyal fans who has a YouTube account and does not have restricted mode and also has more then 10,000 lifetime views to get your videos monetize, you should be fine. Otherwise, there are other platforms out there.

Why this Wrestlemania weekend will suck for me!

Before you all get mad at me and tell me about that this Sunday will be great, think twice what this blog is all about. I am letting you know that this weekend will suck for me. Why? Because I have no clue on where Chris Hero and Tim Donst are going to be. Why did I say that? Well, it's because I don't know to be honest. Tim Donst was not announced by CZW for their Best of the Best show and Chris has not said a word or WWE NXT said anything if Chris will be part of the WWE NXT Supershow the night before Wrestlemania.

I wish this was like last year. Yes, last year. Last year, when everyone was in Dallas on one app I use to watch. I paid $60 for that weekend. Yes, $60 for 6 shows, that was $10 per show I paid for. Since Tim was on one show and Chris on three shows and I had two other shows to watch that included Kota Ibushi having revenge on the evil Dr. Cube on the Kaiju Big Battel show and the ladies of Shimmer to wrestle. Despite a few hiccups that I relay to FITE TV, which I don't think they were at fault, but, it could been Comcast, my internet provider or WWN, I was happy.

Now, this year is sad. Tim Donst is not booked on any indy show that is performing in Orlando and I have no clue what Chris Hero is doing. What's worse is that I don't know if Santana Garrett is booked and I wish they booked Ben Boone!

My luck.

I been going through a lot this year and it really sucks!

That's why this weekend will suck for me!

The pro wrestling community is sad.

Yeah, a thousand apologizes for what I was saying in the beginning of this, but, what I was saying that Jim Ross was commentating on NXT when Chris Hero was in a feud against William Regal. I was really glad to see that he did.

Anyway, I was in shock last night that Jim Ross' wife, Jan, has died. If you don't know, the truth is that Jan was in her vespa, which it's an Italian Scooter, got hit by a 17 year old boy, who was driving an automobile, which I saw from the tweets that he send out was two days ago, but, it happened on a Monday. This is what Jim Ross tweeted last night:

It is a sad situation. I am sure everyone will be hating on the 17 year old, but, maybe the kid had to get home, so his parents won't yell at him. Think about it. I am sure most of you who are reading this, would be thinking about when you were 17, you were scared too, dealing with pressure by your parents to be home, because of a curfew, and I am sure that was going on with that kid.

Norman, Oklahoma Police are investigating of what happened and I can't share the information of what happened, because the news site's reporter expose the 17 year old's name and I am fearing that kid will get death threats from sickos who would find where the kid lives. If any news site expose that kid's name and cause death threats, they need to lose their job and be blackballed from doing anything that deals with the news.

That's my opinion.

#IamaYouTuberandIamproudofit My father is making me insecure of me finding a job

I know I had to say what was on my mind. My father is making insecure of what I really know at best. Despite all he cares for is me finding a job and get out of the house. He does not want me to live in Bordentown anymore. My mother don't want to live in Bordentown either, but, she don't want to be far from her work either. My parents are so mess up and they don't respect me at all. They will continue to treat me badly until I cave. However, I will fight them on until they know is that I am trying to make it easier for them. Until then. This is a war that I need to do.

I am alone without my family's moral support. They are old. I am young. My brother does not care. As long as he gets to bowl.

I am me.

International Women's Day: Indy female wrestlers

Before you all go hating on me, I do want to talk about the International Women's Day. It's a day to celebrate women who have broke barriers and those who are continue what they do. I am going to talk about a few women who are wrestlers who broke barriers themselves.

You know about Mae Young, the first woman to wrestle, but I want to tell you of two women who really broke barriers, LuFisto and Candice LeRae.

First, LuFisto. She is from Canada, but, she done plenty of things that she done. She was the first female wrestling in Combat Zone Wrestling and she had won the now defunct CZW Iron Man Championship. In fact, LuFiso has mostly dominate any match against both man and female. If you think I am crazy, here are some videos I recommend for you to see:

Candice LeRae, a California native, who is currently lives in Florida, with her husband, WWE Superstar, Johnny Gargano, was the first and only woman to wrestle in the promotion, Pro Wrestling Guerrilla. She is mostly seen with her tag team partner and friend, Joey Ryan. They are known as World's Cutest Tag Team. She has gone to Japan and wrestled on DDT Pro with Joey Ryan. I know Candice LeRae had used to accompanying some wrestlers in PWG. Also, Candice did had wrestled in Smash Wrestling and Absolute Intense Wrestling where she wrestled against her husband, Johnny Gargano.

Some video can help:

 This is a documentary by Kenny Johnson

 Oh here is a video of Candice LeRae and Joey Ryan in tag team action:

There are some other women who I follow on twitter and Instagram that you should see how they wrestle.

Jessicka Havok:

Santana Garrett:

Mia Yim:

I forgot to mention there are some other women in the videos like Veda Scott and Jordynne Grace. If you like to see more, feel free to search on YouTube.

Austin Creed or Xavier Woods: The YouTuber and Wrestler that is on his way to 1 Million YouTube subscribers!

I don't know if you know that Austin Creed or should I call him Xavier Woods, is on his way to 1 Million YouTube subscribers on his channel, UpUpDownDown. 

I have not been watching him on RAW, but I heard many things about him since I had gave up watching him.

However, his YouTube side has been really well since he is on his way to 1 Million YouTube subscribers. I know that he has been playing video games with his fellow superstars and divas as well as special guests like vlogger/gamer YouTuber, Emma Blackery and Let's Make a Deal host, Wayne Brady.

Creed also has work with another YouTuber named Chris Denker who has well over 720,000 subscribers on some game plays and another YouTuber Andru Edwards who has well over 120,000 subscribers on contests or challenges.

But, I got mad at him once when he was on the NXT roster. Someone who was attending the show, saw Creed botch a maneuver at his opponent and broke their teeth. He was sorry by the face he had, but I got mad at him for a while, but things change and I forgive him.

He is still part of the trio, New Day, with Kofi Kingston and Big E and those three are looking for another tag team title run. I hope they do.

I hope Creed keeps doing well with wrestling and working on his YouTube Channel.

He also hinted that he has an upcoming Special Guest on his channel that made him and Kofi Kingston excited and Cedric Alexander fainted:

Congrats Austin Creed!
