May 14, 2017

With previous articles that I have written for the Quad Cities Daily, there is no doubt that I am a “wrasslin” fan.   Not wrestling but “Wrasslin’”.   Not in regards to today’s Sports Entertainment, but when it was bad guys against good guys.  Wrestling has evolved over the years.  It doesn’t matter if you are rich […]
