The biggest event in sports entertainment is taking place this Sunday, and with March Madness happening on Saturday (as well Theheadrush fantasy baseball draft on Sunday morning), this is gonna be one helluva weekend!
Now in for the sake of full disclosure let’s get a couple of things clear: 1.) I actually don’t get to watch all that much wrestling, but rather, I read all the write-ups of what happened the day after. The reason? I go to sleep every night around 9 (sad. true.). 2.) I am a huge Rock supporter. In fact, he’s the reason that i got into wrestling in the first place.
See, back when I played youth soccer on the Hawks (shout out!), me and my two teammates would always recap what was going on with regards to attitude era wrestling. It was on a trip to Minnesota to play at the USA Cup where they educated me on the happenings of WCW/NWO/WWF, and once we returned from that trip, I tuned in and the first thing I saw was Rocky Maivia and The Nation of Domination battling DX.
Hook line and sinker.
I don’t know what drew me in about the Rock, but I think it was the fact that he sucked and everyone hated on him. So I stuck up for the guy and before I knew it, BAM! People’s Champ! WWE Champ! People’s Elbow becomes legit where it was once the source of scorn.
So that’s where I’m coming from. Anyway, let’s get it on!
