Manchild aka "The Finisher"

"The Finisher" is the name of Eli's professinal wrestling character. This kid still loves WWE so, so much. I think he kind of has the idea that other kids don't love it so he isn't as verbal about it anymore, but he still is pretty singularly focused on it. It's like the Power Rangers all over again. Eli pays for the WWE Network for his Kindle every month, since we are big meanies who don't have cable and therefore, no way to watch hours upon hours of old WWE matches. (Side note, he claims to know everything from 1993 forward, and adult fans have tested this theory. Super fandom here) With the network, he also gets the big live shows. Last weekend we let him watch the main event in the living room on the big TV. I didn't realize what a huge "thing" this was for him. He wears his costumes and gets out all his figures. I knew that part. What I didn't realize is that he uses his figures to recreate the matches that he's watching. And he is INTENSE. This kid is my iceberg so it's completely out of the norm to see him so passionately focused on something. It's also about the cutest thing ever (but don't tell him I said that). If he asks, it's the coolest, most awesome thing ever :)
