  • United States Presidents & Pro-Wrestling (from Lincoln to Trump) Our story begins with Abraham Lincoln who was, in actuality, a scrappy grappler in his youth.  He was also a professional wrestler in that he made money through wrestling.  A technicality of sorts, but a fun part of early wrestling lore.  The Civil War provided the ideal place for wrestling styles from all over to intermix and lead to the development of the professional wrestling of men like Colonel James McLaughlin, John McMahon and William Muldoon.The Reconstruction Era was a unique era in American history and the numerous presidents do not have any notable connections to the embryonic version of pro-wrestling that was around.  During the Industrial Age (or Progressive Age), this would change.It should come as ...

  • February is Nat'l Heart Month Cardiovascular disease can manifest itself in many ways and has many causes.  There is always the issue of genetics, but pro-wrestlers are notorious for a lifestyle full of risk factors.  Once athletic and active pro-wrestlers are worn down by injuries and become less active, they are prime targets for heart disease.  The generation that drank, smoked and had terrible diets on the road, ran into health problems later in life.  There is also that generation that used cocaine, sleeping pills and painkillers to survive the brutal road schedule, which saw its fair share of deaths.  The years of steroid abuse that led to a number of enlarged hearts and subsequent premature deaths was staggering until just a few ...

  • Notable Fighters Turned Pro-Wrestlers The pro-wrestling world has been abuzz following the appearance of Ronda Rousey at the Royal Rumble.  Rousey, one of the biggest drawing cards and crossover stars in the history of MMA, could be a game-changer for the WWE.  However, she is hardly the first fighter to try out pro-wrestling.There are plenty of notable fighters who actually had backgrounds in pro-wrestling - Ken Shamrock, Kazushi Sakuraba and Brock Lesnar.  In recent years, more fighters with an appreciation of pro-wrestling have tried their hand at it.  Tito Ortiz and Quinton Jackson, despite being charismatic stars in MMA, had cringeworthy showings in TNA.  Lesser MMA personalities Matt Riddle and Shayna Bazler have made strong showings, but their careers ...
