I feel like wrestling is one of the many things that led to Trump. So thanks.

The Big Show went to SIUE...played basketball for a year. I think it was 1992.

it's been argued wwf swayed 2000 election. even before trump i'd heard about this. i can't say wrestling created trump but they do run well together.

I prefer listening to podcasts and watching shoot interviews than wrestling at this point.

Mostly about the attitude era.

Apparently David Arquette nearly got himself killed in a Deathmatch held at some bar. I have no idea what that usually means in modern terms but there are fluorescent light tubes involved and one of them cut his neck. Not sure how bad it really was but it looked serious and blood from the neck usually is.

I had a call once where a guy slice his neck from ear to ear because his exgirlfriend wouldn’t take him back. At first glance, I was like this is going to go downhill fast. On second glance, it was pretty much an ear to ear flesh wound. WTF?

The straight man is always what makes the rest of the show work. Mean Gene was a great straight man for WWF/E
