Bobby Roode recently did “10 Questions” with WhatCulture.com. Here are a few highlights:

You’re one of TNA’s longest serving stars. What’s your secret to staying fresh and relevant in the fans’ eyes?

Just keep improving, keep getting better and giving the fans new something to watch. I guess, in my situation, I’m continually learning and wanting to learn. I’m trying to do new things to keep my character fresh all the time. That’s been something that I’ve been working on my entire career.

How confident are you that you’ll get another reign as TNA World Heavyweight Champion?

Oh, I’m very confident that I can get that opportunity again. I think I’ve proven myself significantly from the first time I had the World title, becoming the longest reigning champion in the company’s history. You know, there will come a time when I get another opportunity to become champion and I’m going to make the best of that opportunity and hopefully, if I have it my way, it’ll be a bigger, better, longer reign than the first one.

Marcus “Buff” Bagwell opens up about being a gigolo

buff-bagwellMarcus “Buff” Bagwell opens up about being a gigolo!

Recap is courtesy of Zane from The Undisputed Wrestling Show.

The Undisputed Wrestling Show (www.facebook.com/theundisputedwrestlingshow) had the opportunity to speak with Marcus “Buff” Bagwell recently to promote Heroes and Legends 3 (www.heroesandlegendswrestling.com) in Ft. Wayne, IN on Saturday, March 22.

Bagwell on the Showtime program “Gigolos”:  “If you go on cowboys4angels.com it gives my price.  I am now a gigolo on the “Gigolos” show.  Basically what it is:  Women, not men, not anybody else, just women can go on there for companionship.  There is no sex.  Showtime can’t have sex (on air).  This is my job and I came up with this because wrestling seems to be over for me in the big world and I’m having to switch gears at the age of 44.  So still being in shape to go to WWE tomorrow, ready to go to TNA tomorrow, it is just political (that I’m not there).  So time to switch gears.  This came up, I’m doing it, and I’m going on my debut and it was nuts.  I was the second highest rated on the show (Gigolos).  It is just blowing everyone’s minds how quick this thing took off.  I’m just riding the ride and seeing what happens.”

GUEST COLUMN: “The Top 5 Steel Cage Matches in Professional Wrestling History” by Shawn S. Lealos

Steel cage 2TNA Lockdown just took place, the one TNA event each year where every match takes place in a steel cage. While the event has a couple of matches that might be amazing, here are five cage matches from the history of the WWE, WCW and NWA that rank as the best of all time.

5. Bruno Sammartino vs. Larry Zbyszko (WWF Showdown at Shea 1980)

This match was the culmination of one of the hottest feuds in all of professional wrestling, as Larry Zbyszko had been billed as Bruno Sammartino’s prize pupil for many years until frustration led him to the point that he laid out Sammartino with a chair. Zbyszko immediately became the biggest heel in the world and that led to this, the biggest cage match of all time at this period in wrestling history.
