-Diamond Dallas Page has published an article on The Players’ Tribune, a “letter to his younger self” describing how he got his career started, the legends that made his success possible, the WWE Hall of Fame, and more. Exceprt: “A guy who looks like Jake Roberts is going to walk into your nightclub. Yeah, that Jake Roberts. The wrestler — the wrestling god — that you keep seeing every time you turn on your TV. The guy who’s so fucking talented with a mic in his hand that it almost gets you high. Alright, kid, you don’t want to blow this. But at the same time … you also want to keep your cool. It’s your move, Dallas — what’s it going to be? … It’s a match made in heaven: A wrestler who loves to drink … and a mark offering free booze. Before long, you and Jake will hit it off and become casual drinking buddies. And soon after that, bro, you won’t even believe this: Norma Jean’s Nightclub — your very own Norma Jean’s — is going to become a regular spot for wrestlers to hit when they come through Southwest Florida.” Read the full article HERE.


-Mick Foley talked to Brian Fritz of Sporting News about various topics including weight loss, Hell in a Cell, Christmas, Raw’s 25th Anniversary, and more. Excerpt: “It’s really interesting to see people, how creative they get in trying to find new ways to utilize that structure and I think it’s always a high point of the WWE calendar. Even when people leave disappointed, which is almost inevitably going to be the case on some level, they’re still looking forward to that next year. There’s still a magic to the name.” Read the full article HERE.
