Squared Circle Magic with Rico : Surviving War Games - A Survivor Series & NXT Takeover Recap

I have a questions to ask everyone. When is a NXT Takeover not great? Ok.... I'll wait... Times up... The answer is never! The event started with a semi squash between Lars Sullivan and Kassius Ohno. Lars looked like a beast, even though Ohno got some moves off, but you could tell he didn't stand a chance. Ohno was so awesome when he was in NXT before, I don't know what happened to him, but I sure hope there's brighter days. 
Next up was a match featuring Aleister Black and the Velveteen Dream. Honestly, I didn't know what to think of this match before it started. Dream played so many mind games the past few weeks, and the fact that Black would never acknowledge him made it hard to gauge what would happen. Though let me say, I was not disappointed and neither was the crowd. These two put on an excellent show and had me standing up cheering in my living room (until my fiance kindly asked me to quiet down). It was still hard to keep quiet when the entire arena was cha…

This game is also notable for introducing the Koopa Kids into the Mario games. 9. Wolfenstein PC The games look doesn’t hold up today with its pixelated graphics but this was the first FPS game I ever played. And come on, what kid does not want to shoot themselves some Nazis. 8. Star Wars Rogue Squadron N64 This game let you live the Star Wars Universe’s space battles. Featuring battles from the movies and a…

Behind The Magician's Curtain - Dan America takes you behind the ring apron

I have had the privilege of meeting a handful of WWE Superstars, not at “Meet & Greets” but through chance meetings or it’s work related but for some reason I always have bad luck.  Here's a few more of my run ins...
A Dirty Look from Al Snow at Denny’s.
On December 28th 1998 Raw is War was once again held at the Pepsi Arena in Albany, NY. I was not able to attend the show but I watched it on TV at a friends house and was quite jealous of all the people I knew that went to the show, to make me feel better my friend Mike decided to treat me to Denny’s. We had been there for a while when something strange happened, two of the younger customers began wiping off the table across from me, they had big smiles on their faces and were acting quite giddy to be working for free. Then I looked toward the waiting area to see none other then Al Snow and the Blue Meanie walking toward the booth, they were being mobbed by fans before they could sit down.

After signing a few dozen autographs Al …
