Who Cares

Note:  This post was originally written some weeks ago just before the game against the Bengals. Who cares? It pains me, as a lifelong fan of the Cleveland Browns, to have had to adjust to Sundays without football. I did a sports show podcast early in my broadcasting career.  I emulated the greatest announcers covering […]

CM Punk

CM Punk returned to the squared circle after seven missed years and countless opportunities. Could have, would have, should have. Thing is, he received the loudest pop I’ve ever heard for any wrestler and that’s saying something.  Sure it’s in AEW.  Sure time will tell if they survive WWE.  But this isn’t the same WWE […]

Guardians

Sometimes, in certain instances, it’s harder to put into words the things that are so easy to express in everyday conversations. This is one of those instances.  But why? The Cleveland Indians announced they will be changing the name of the team starting next season.  Why not do it right now?  Some issues raise more […]

Cesaro

Professional wrestling, particularly the WWE here in the States, has always been known for its colorful characters. This is still the case in today’s squared circle.  There is one “Superstar” though that is finally being recognized for his talent despite not having the flashiest persona.  For the record, I have not watched or followed any […]

The Goat

Where do each of these roads lead to?  Over the course of the last few months I have laid out my case for the top five greatest pro wrestlers of all-time.  Bret Hart, Undertaker, Macho Man, and Dusty Rhodes all made my list. What do each of these wrestlers have in common as the path […]

The Dream

In compiling this list of my top five greatest pro wrestlers of all-time, I’ve tried my level best to be objective. I thought about the undeniable legacy and world-renown of a guy like Hulk Hogan who meets every criteria with the exception of in ring ability.  He should be on this list. I thought about […]

The Ego

Number three on my list of the greatest pro wrestlers of all-time is someone whose impact cannot be denied from an objective standpoint.  He was one half of wrestling’s first couple, participated in what many consider to be the greatest match in WrestleMania history, and whose voice was emulated by every fan in every living […]

The Original

The dead man.  The phenom.  The Undertaker. When the lights go out it’s time to step up your game.  Period. For many years, the shroud of mystery surrounding the pro wrestler known as The Undertaker was, in many ways, just as important to the sport (yes, I’m calling it a sport) as was the idea […]
