Forbes.com reports that Bill Goldberg will be returning to WWE.

This is exciting news for fans who got into wrestling during THE MONDAY NIGHT WARS. WCW’s unstoppable for is returning and, from all video game trailers, is on a collision course with Brock Lesnar. Many of you are excited and you should be. I’m not because I saw this scenario two years ago and all signs point to history repeating itself

There was a lot to like about Wrestlemania 31. The opening ladder match for the Intercontinental title was great, Cena and Rusev did a good job with a grand entrance from Rusev, Paige, AJ, and the Bellas had a good match, Stephanie, Triple H, the Rock and Ronda Rousey was gold, and Seth Rollins cashing in to win the WWE Championship was the right call.  However, despite all these highs, there was a deep low. Sting lost and it was the wrong call. Here is why.  (more…)

Jessa Hinton is more then just a pretty face. Not only is she Playboy’s Miss July who’s  fun and personable, she’s also a driven, ambitious, and entrepreneurial young lady. She not only does interviews for “Top Rank Boxing” but is creating her own fashion line. Add in all her personal appearances and you have one busy girl. It was very exciting that she found the time to talk to me last week about her being Miss July, upcoming projects, and whether she prefers UFC to Boxing. (more…)

The Cast of the A-Team guest hosts RAW and Mr. T isn’t happy. Will he crash the party? Of course. Also, it’s “Viewers Choice” so what will I do with your favorite wrestler?

Much has been said about UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar’s post-fight antics after UFC 100 this past weekend. While they were definitely inappropriate by all standards of sportsmanship, Brock’s antics will not hurt the UFC.

Brock Lesnar has the potential to be for MMA what Mike Tyson was for boxing. He is an animal who tears his opponents apart without a second thought. His comments afterword are reminiscent of Tyson’s pre-fight commentary where he threatened to eat Lennox Lewis’s children. However, despite the controversy Tyson’s antics got people interested in his fight with Lewis and generated PPV buys. Another character is Floyd “Money” Mayweather. His antics got people interested in his fights and generated greater revenue. And lets not forget the interviews of Muhammed Ali. What do all these boxers have in common? They were athletes with personalities.

By reaching into his WWE background, Brock has given himself a personality; a cocky, remorseless monster that is seemingly unstoppable.

Brock Lesnar is what the UFC needs. Since the departure of Tito Ortiz, the UFC has yet to unveil a main eventer that people will pay to see, hoping that his next fight is the one where he’s humbled. And hopefully the one who humbles him will be the epitomy of class and sportsmanship. One thing’s for sure, I’ll be watching.
