Former WCW star The Stro (formerly known as The Maestro) has published a new column at PWMania.com. Stro gives his thoughts and expert predictions for Sunday’s WWE pay-per-view WrestleMania XXX. Stro talks about each match at Sunday’s WrestleMania PPV and also talks on the WWE Hall of Fame, Scott Hall, Jake “The Snake” Roberts and more. Here is an excerpt from his entry:
Among wrestling fans, the Nassau Coliseum may be considered “The House that Piper Built.”
From seconding Bob Orton in the main event of the first “Saturday Night’s Main Event” NBC primetime special in 1985, to headlining the New York portion of WrestleMania 2 in a boxing match against Mr. T in 1986, to winning a 1990 Bunkhouse Battle Royal with the help of a chain saw, “Rowdy” Roddy Piper has been front and center in some of the most epic wrestling cards the Uniondale arena has ever seen.
DDP talks about his time in WCW and WWE, Vince McMahon, and much more!
The WWE Championship has had a long history and many title holders. In its early days, many held it for months, even years. However, as wrestling evolved, title reigns became shorter and shorter. With the abundance of tv shows, pay-per-views and live events, there are many more opportunities these days for the title to change hands. Sometimes it borders on ridiculous, as in recent years we have seen several superstars win the title 10 times.

Let’s get to it….
It is with deep regret that DGUSA must inform our audience of the unfortunate fact Dragon Gate (Japanese) talent will not be able to perform on WrestleMania weekend shows. We have a prepared a series of replacements. We have already announced the first time ever matchup pitting Masato Tanaka against Chris Hero on the Friday night DGUSA show. As the entire pro wrestling world converges on New Orleans this week, the last thing our audience wants to hear or read about is promotional drama. We know you have practically unlimited choices this coming week, and we are going to make sure all those who chose and choose to support DGUSA are rewarded with the best experience we can possibly provide. Here are our replacements….
Bleacher Report and Ring Rust Radio had former WWE and current TNA superstar MVP on the show this week, and it was a great episode with plenty of exclusive content and insight into the star’s TNA and WWE career, CM Punk’s situation, Lockdown, working in Japan and so much more!
When it comes to rings — Davey Richards was scheduled to place one on his fiancee’s finger. Plans changed. Now he will be competing for Spencer-area wrestling fans.
He was supposed to be getting married Sunday. Instead, he will be exchanging punches, kicks and high flying maneuvers with a couple of Jersey boys.
“She’s so understanding,” Richards said, acknowledging it takes a special woman to be his wife. “But when the company schedules you, she knows I need to be there.”
Davey Richards and his partner, Eddie Edwards, known in TNA wrestling circles as The Wolves will be in action at the Clay County Regional Events Center attempting to regain the tag team title belts from the current world champions.
MiamiHerald.com presents: “Healthy choices for Meet-n-Eat with TNA wrestler Austin Aries at Miami’s Choices Vegan Cafe” by Jim Varsallone
Going out for breakfast, lunch or dinner can be healthy and tasty.
Austin Aries, a TNA pro wrestler, proved it during his Meet-n-Eat at Choices Vegan Cafe off NW 79th Street, just east of Biscayne Boulevard in Miami.
Using his celebrity status for the betterment of healthy living, Aries created this event to help people understand the importance of good eating with the right foods. Usually, a pro wrestler’s diet consists of dairy and meat for protein to build up the body, but Aries takes a different approach — plant powered — combining healthy choices with a regimented workout.
