Sting is the first inductee into this year’s WWE Hall of Fame class

The WWE Hall of Fame is just as scripted as all of the matches are with its celebrity wing and win-loss records and championships not really defining what it means to be a “Hall of Famer.” It took until 2015 for “Macho Man” Randy Savage to be inducted and if Koko B. Ware is a Hall of Famer, they should be putting a plaque for Joe McEwing in Cooperstown. Alas, that does not...

Rob Gronkowski is a 1980s pro wrestler in sports drink commercial

Rob Gronkowski is promoting something called BODYARMOR Sports Drink, and the ad the company released on YouTube featuring Gronkowski has several call-backs to pro wrestling in the 1980s. It’s completely absurd, and we can’t get enough. So, what did we like about this? -The subpar quality of the video, as if it were recorded on a VCR from TV. -Gronk’s pink tassels. -Zubaz....
