I could be a wrestler

if I had a name like Butch or Randy
or I wasn’t shaped like an uppercase i
or I had a name like Captain Big Boy
or music played when I won arguments
or I had a name like Dumpster Truck Junior
or my hair looked good when wet
or I had a name like Josh Hardmouth
or I wasn’t convinced I was a bad guy
even when the crowd chanted my name with love.
