Exclusive Interview: Bob Backlund Talks WWE Reign, Hogan, McMahon, & More

Bob Backlund Talks WWE Title Win/Loss, Superfly Snuka, and Hulk Hogan

Bob Backlund was king of the WWE for five years as WWF world champion and has recently published an autobiography chronicling his career. Backlund is doing media to promote his book and is offering harsh words on several of his former colleagues.

Bob Backlund remains true to his All-American roots

Outspoken. Opinionated. Political and a great American. Donald Trump?

NBA Playoffs: No Love in Cleveland

After Kelly Olynyk went Bob Backlund on Kevin Love we all knew Cleveland should be hoping for the best and preparing for the worst. From reports out here the worst has arrived as Love is expecting to be out the rest of the playoffs because a torn labrum in his left shoulder.
