Star Still Wrestling With Demons

Wrestling has been a very big and important part of my life, since I was 7. From meeting Macho Man Randy Savage, to buying The Sandman a beer in 2001, and beyond, it’s always been something I hold very close to my heart.  I don’t have much concern for people that say wrestling is fake,…

Let’s Get It On: Dana White vs. Larry Merchant

Q101.com has long reviled Larry Merchant.  At times he has seemed drunk during his post-fight rambling soliloquies.  Between him and the wretch-inducing HBO PBP man Jim Lampley, it’s been tough to sit through boxing on HBO for decades.  That’s just our opinion.  However… The recent tussle between Merchant and the equally-addled Floyd Mayweather Jr. had…

No ‘Bones’ About It: Jones Fo Real in UFC 135

Ok, so it was Quinton Jackson.  Q101.com is not going to annoint the kid, Jon Jones, all-world just for beating a has-been like Jackson.  However, it was a dominating performance over a sometimes-dangerous opponent.  The mission was to keep the trajectory Jones has been set upon to fight Rashad Evans, and then perhaps a dream…

He Gone! Nash ‘Fired’ On Raw

Is it Real?  To kick off Raw several weeks ago, CM Punk and Kevin Nash once again began to duel on the microphone. As Punk explained that the last time Nash was relevant was the year Justin Bieber was born, Triple H made an entrance, and quickly brought the sparring match to a halt. Triple…
