-- As noted earlier, ESPN's Bill Simmons wrote a great article remembering the "Macho Man" Randy Savage on ESPN.com. It was actually the lead story on ESPN.com earlier today. If you haven't had a chance to check it out, I highly recommend it, you can read it by clicking here.
-- UFC 130 is this weekend and UFC Hall of Famer Randy Couture made his picks for Saturday's event, which you can check out at this direct link by clicking here. Couture had a surprising pick for the main event bout between Matt Hamill and Quinton "Rampage" Jackson.
-- Arda Ocal & Jimmy Korderas of R.A.W. Radio recently spoke with Colt Cabana of ROH. Here are some highlights:
Colt Cabana's connection to podcasts and Zack Ryder: "If you guys remember, I had "What's cracking with Scotty Goldman" and at the time Ryder was just starting this whole thing and he was just singing to his friends and he would just sing "woo woo we we woo woo woo" and I thought it was the funniest thing I ever heard. If you go back and look at one, I call him in and I ask him to be the "What's Cracking-mascot" and I even ask the camera "how is this guy not champion?" And 2-3 years later people are starting to pick up on it. And not that I had anything to do with it but obviously I knew what was good and if they're (WWE) smart, they'll start giving him some love"
The new ROH and what Colt thinks about it: "It does excite me. And I say to fans and even my family - there is zero negativity about this. It's only going to be positive. On a scale of 0-100, whether it's +2 instead of +100 of positivity, it's still a positive. And it's a positive thing to see that we're moving in the right direction. A lot of the guys are really excited. A lot of people are looking forward to this and asking a lot of questions. But as a group we all knew there was nothing wrong with this and only positive things to look forward to."
Colt on going to Iqaluit, NU to work shows this weekend with Arda and Jimmy: "I'm a Chicago kid. I spent many of times in Soldiers Field freezing my butt off watching Bears games. So I'm excited to go. I've seen documentaries on people doing these trips. And I'm just excited - just as the wrestling nerd in me - I'm excited to go to Nunavut and just work that territory."
