Payback, NXT Takeover, And the Problem

I’m so tired. So WWE Payback is in the books and it was pretty amazing, all things considered. The main event pitting the Shield against Evolution was kind of disgusting at a few points (In my old age I apparently have a queasy stomach, and the lets beat the **** out of Roman Reigns with sticks when […]Continue reading...

Johnny Football, pro day pioneer

If you love the NFL Draft like I do then you’ve no doubt already heard tell of Johnny Manziel’s great pro day.
