I got my start doing "The Wrestling Matt Show" on WCCP 104.9. I loved wrestling. I still do, sometimes. This past WrestleMania got my excited again and the Monday Night Raw following did so even more. Former UFC Heavyweight Champion Brock Lesnar returned to WWE and F5'd John Cena. It was 11:15 PM and I was sitting straight up in bed. Goosebumps, yeah I had 'em. I knew there were rumors but I figured he was still contractually obligated to the UFC. When he came out I marked out hard. That's why wrestling doesn't have the same appeal to me that it had in 1999. When WCW was in a ratings war with WWE it was hot. Wrestlers were wrestling for one company one Monday night and on another one the following week. Those days are gone. Yeah I realize there's TNA but it's not near the level that WWE has reached. Who's the only guy that could show up on WWE now that would make me pop? I guess Sting, but that's likely not to ever happen.
