Matty here, dabbling in many career fields, most of which involve my overwhelming love of all things professional wrestling! If you like what you read/see, please check out my official column and new podcast with fellow wrestling enthusiasts!
Rest in peace to Ox Baker, who was a wrestler in the 60s and 70s. Ox had a really unique look for his time: a larger guy, a fu-manchu mustache and pointed eyebrows, which all really made him look like Satan himself. It also doesn’t help his reputation when you find out that popular wrestling lore has him as the killer of two wrestlers, who, coincidentally, died after matches that involved Ox giving them his dreaded heart punch.
He also is known for inciting a riot in the Cleveland Arena in the mid 1970s. A double turn which saw Ox and his new partner, Johnny Powers, turn heel and “Big Cat” Ernie Ladd turn baby face, incited one of the most dangerous riots in wrestling history.
In this scenario, Ox Baker entered the ring and delivered multiple heart punches to Ernie Ladd, who sold it as if he were having a heart attack. When Baker continued the assault, including some stomps to the heart, the crowd became enraged, and, because they thought Baker was legitimately trying to kill Ernie Ladd, began to riot. Some threw chairs into the ring, many fans approached the ring with knives, and one man, holding a chair, managed to chase Baker out of the arena.
While he was not well-known among most casual fans, his knack for getting heat is unmatched, and there are many people in the WWE today that wish that they could have gotten the heat that Ox did. Rest in peace!

If there’s anything that I would pay for, it’s to see a PPV with a main event that featured John Cena fighting Nakamura. Just imagine the welts on Cena’s body after that one.

sounds like somebody’s got a fetish

Guilty as charged!

If there’s anything that I would pay for, it’s to see a PPV with a main event that featured John Cena fighting Nakamura. Just imagine the welts on Cena’s body after that one.

So, the loser of Cena/Ambrose faces Randy Orton? Interesting. Wish they would do a match between those two that involved Ambrose beating Cena clean, but maybe they’re saving that for PPV.

How the hell is Cena supposed to be the baby face throughout all of that? The whole time I was begging Ambrose to sock Cena in the jaw.
