Matt Striker describes a key mistake he made during his WWE career, then immediately admonishes his “lack of a better sentence structure” at the end of said description.

Constructive self-criticism is ever present while speaking with Malverne resident Striker at Gleason’s Gym in Brooklyn. The boxing facility’s rings have been graced by the likes of Mike Tyson and “Sugar” Shane Mosley, but on this night the World of Unpredictable Wrestling and its collection of pro wrestling’s newbies and nomads have taken over.

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”.”
