20 Pictures of Nicolas Cage’s Face Photoshopped on People

Andre the Giant Nicolas Cage face faceoff funny comedy weirdI had a difficult time trying to think of a title that best suits this post. I went bland and just said what this actually post is…twenty pictures of Nicholas Cage’s Face Photoshopped on other people’s faces.

Toy Crazy: The Definitive WWF LJN Checklist

Ultimate Warrior LJN 1989 Toy WWF WWE Action FigureI know we all had toys as a kid that either got destroyed or sold by your parents at a yard sale. Well, a lot of those toys now go for big money on eBay. In particular, the WWF LJN line of toys from the 80’s.

Here is the definitive WWF LJN checklist with all the widely accepted known variants for the standard figures, Bendies, Thumb Wrestlers, 16-inch figures, Stretch wrestlers and Posters.

Dead Wrestlers List: When and How They Died

Big Boss Man Dead Wrestler WWF WWE WCWI cannot remember a time when I didn’t watch pro wrestling. My dad and grandfather used to watch it all the time and I was enamored by the wrestlers on the TV screen.

As many people my age, I grew up in the age of Hulkamania. I always wanted him to win, but that character got old. I found myself liking “Macho Man” Randy Savage, Andre the Giant and Junk Yard Dog. I think that is when I legitimately fell in love with wrestling and not just the festival around Hulk Hogan.

The life of a professional wrestler is difficult. The road isn’t kind and bad habits can take over one’s life.

As the years went by, I’ve started seeing all my favorite WWE, WWF, WCW & ECW wrestlers die off at an alarming rate. I often wondered how they died. I made this list for those who are fans of wrestling and are interested in how their favorite wrestler passed away. Continue reading
