Former WCW star The Maestro reveals his WrestleMania XXX predictions

The-MaestroFormer 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:

Scott Hall: My former USWA tag team partner. My fellow WCW/NWO alumni. My buddy Razor Ramon/Scott Hall. Before I met Scott. I was a big fan of his from his early days tagging with Dan Spivey as “Starship Coyote”, his time wrestling with CWF from Florida, his run in the AWA teaming with Curt Hennig , and his stint in WCW as “The Diamond Studd”. Saw a match down in Puerto Rico he had when I first saw “The Razor’s Edge” finisher. Thought at the time that was one of the most innovated finishing moves I had seen. “The Bad Guy” became Intercontinental champion in the WWE and to this day people still talk about the historic ladder match he had with Shawn Michaels at Wrestlemania 10. Remember Dutch Mantell (WWE’s Zeb Colter) telling me he thought at one point Razor was gonna be WWE champion at the time. He certainly had all the tools. Him and Kevin Nash would later come to WCW and along with a turning Hulk Hogan made history forming the infamous “New World Order”.”

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.

wwe-championshipTheRichest.com presents: “Top 10 Shortest WWE Championship Reigns in History” by Stefano Mocella

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.

Davey RDavey Richards: Much more than meets the eye
By Randy Cauthron

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.

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.
