Phoenix is not widely known for many things; dry heat, golf, Steve Nash and Spring Training. But it may be time to add one very important item to that list: WWE Pay-Per-Views. Five times the Valley of the Sun has hosted a marquee WWE event, including SummerSlam in 2003 and the biggest one of all, Wrestlemania at University of Phoenix Stadium in 2010. It’s also hosted numerous Monday Night Raw and SmackDown episodes. More times than not, when the WWE pulls their trucks into Phoenix, fans in attendance can expect a grea tshow. Sunday night at US Airways Center was no exception, as the WWE presented Money In The Bank.
Full disclosure, I have been a huge WWE fan since I was a little kid. I remember sitting in my best friend’s dad’s office watching Hulk Hogan defend America against Sgt. Slaughter at Wrestlemania VII. I remember watching Wrestlemania IX at Caesar’s Palace when Bret Hart lost...

The Suns announced Monday that first-round pick Kendall Marshall has signed his rookie contract.
Marshall, the 13th overall pick in the NBA draft last month, had been awaiting the finalizing of his contract to take part in the Suns' summer league activities in Las Vegas. The former North Carolina star is expected to participate in the squad's final four summer games.
Luis Scola is maybe the most underrated 15 and 8 big man in the NBA. In a world where Omer Asik gets paid like Patrick Ewing, and Roy Hibbert gets maxed out like a top-10 NBA player, the Suns locking Scola in for three years at just over $4 million per deserves a standing ovation. After Scola was amnestied by the Houston Rockets, each of the NBA's teams entered a blind auction...
The Phoenix Suns are undergoing a drastic facelift. Actually, they’re going with the facelift, tummy tuck, liposuction on the arms and throwing in a boob job.After letting their 2-time MVP point guard Steve Nash go to the Lakers, the Suns have been throwing around money to bring in some replacements.
They’ve already signed Michael Beasley and Goran Dragic. They lost the contest...
Lot's of buzz in the cyberworld today.
We'll start with this: Grant Hill is joining Steve Nash in Los Angeles, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo!Sports. But not with the Lakers.
Hill is in the process of signing with the Clippers. We get the feeling that Suns' fans will be able to swallow that one a lot easier than the alternative.
Ronnie Price spent the 11-12 season with the Suns.
If the writing were not already on the wall for Luis Scolathis offseason, the Houston Rockets confirmed it with a post-NBA Draft phonecall: His days as a Rocket were numbered.
While Scola was surprised to leave Houston via the amnesty clause instead of atrade, he soon received another surprise a pleasant one in learning he'dbeen picked up by the Phoenix Suns.
Grant Hill is the second oldest player in the NBA, but that has not stopped teams from pursing the free agent.
The Los Angeles Clippers are the latest team interested in signing Hill to be a backup small forward. Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro met with Hill on Sunday in Las Vegas to gauge his interest in playing in Los Angeles.
According to Broderick Turner of the Los Angeles Times...

Continuing the trend of players hopping around the NBA’s Pacific Division, it looks like Phoenix Suns veteran guard Grant Hill will be signing with the Los Angeles Clippers.
The terms of the contract are still being worked out but it looks like Hill will sign a two-year deal with the Clips. Hill will be turning 40 before next season starts but he can still be a big help off the...
