Thursday Blog..Tampa/FCW...25% OFF Sale on JR'S at!!

 Beautiful day in Tampa! Here's q quick blog on a super, busy day.

FCW records three, one hour TV shows tonight at 7. I expect all three shows to feature some outstanding main events. For these kids, every match in every segment is imperative. Love the sense of urgency that these broadcasts produce for young talents looking to earn the opportunity to move up to WWE. 

These kids are being trained well by some dedicated individuals. I like this group as I feel their potential is obvious. However, as I've always said, potential won't buy the groceries forever. The time is now for many talented grapplers.

Seems as if many fans are giving John Cena little chance of defeating returning beast Brock Lesnar this Sunday on PPV at Extreme Rules. I'm NOT of that belief. Whether it be 'ring rust', Brock's overconfidence or Cena's competitive spirit, I still feel this match is too close for me to predict.

Punk vs Jericho will be masterful but I sense Sheamus vs Bryan may steal the PPV w/ potentially three falls to work with.

Simply as a fan, Extreme Rules is going to be must see for me Sunday night on PPV., is offering a whopping 25% OFF purchases over $50 for a limited time. That savings certainly eases shipping costs.

I've updated the Q&A's here on the site so check them out. 

WWE's alliance with You Tube is awesome. I'm there daily. Great current and vintage content. Been watching many Dick Beyer aka the Destroyer All Japan bouts this week at FCW. great learning tools w/o fail. What's old is new again from one of the great masters of our business. Best wishes for a speedy recovery for Buff Bagwell who was recently involved in a serious car accident. Keep Buff in your prayers on his long road to recovery. Gonna miss one of my favorite events, the NFL Draft, tonight to be at the FCW TV tapings. Although I'm a Draft freak, I'm grateful and excited to be here in Tampa. Hopefully I can sit in on a match or two. Foodie idea....mix low fat sour cream or ranch dressing w/ JR's Original BBQ Sauce to crest a GREAT dipping sauce for wings & veggies. Mix to taste. Awesome. Hope these newly drafted NFL players do through financial planning...same thing I preach to wrestlers. Pulling for my OKC Thunder in NBA playoffs but San Antonio in the west is hot at the moment. Don't forget to hit the BIG SALE NOW at ASAP as the great savings won't last forever. It's grilling time! Thanks for stopping by and share our site with your friends.
