Charlotte Can Be The Face of Wrestling

Charlotte is everything a wrestling federation could want in a marquee performer. She’s athletic, parlaying her experience as a college volleyball player and former fitness trainer into tremendous ring work. She’s got a great look: tall, blonde and in peak physical condition. She exudes charisma just as much through her facial expressions and mannerisms as through the microphone...

Highlights From a Legend-Filled Wrestlemania 31

I have to hand it to Vince McMahon. Wrestlemania 31 will go down as one for the ages, but not because of attendance records, PPV sales, or anything else. No, it will be because of the incredible collection of superstars past and present that took part in the event in and outside of the ring. We are talking about guys like Sting. Triple H, The Rock, Ric Flair, The Undertaker, as well as...

Video: Uh Oh, Kentucky, Hampton Is Channeling Ric Flair In The Locker Room

A No. 16 seed has never beaten a No. 1 seed, and this year’s Kentucky team might be the most-talented one seed in the history of the NCAA Tournament. So it’s probably safe to say that the Wildcats won’t be losing to Hampton this evening.  But the Pirates seem to be pretty fired up.  ESPN’s Jeff Goodman went into Hampton’s locker room at the KFC Yum! Center, where he found...

Gus Johnson might not be calling NCAA Tournament games with CBS anymore but the enthusiastic play-by-play voice is still making it rain with the Big Ten Network.

Gus Johnson channels inner Ric Flair for post-dunk 'Woooooo!"

It's beginning to a look a lot like March Madness, or sound a lot like it at least.

Gus Johnson absolutely loved Matt Costello’s dunk (VIDEO)

Vine Travis Trice missed a free throw.  Matt Costello grabbed the board, spun baseline, hammered home a dunk and Gus Johnson took it from there.  I believe those in the business call this is a Gusgasm. The Ric Flair “woo” at the end was the icing on a rather excited cake. Casey Wollenman, 41, also lost his mind.
