Cellular phones are becoming such an integral part of our everyday lives these days. We rely on them for so much…keeping up on social media, keeping in touch with family and friends, getting sports scores, weather updates and important news tidbits all on the go. Most of the time, it’s great to be up on everything going on in your world all on this singular device you can keep in your pocket. Tonight wasn’t one of those times for me.

After leaving work tonight, I made a stop for a soda at a 7-Eleven for the ride home. Just before putting the car back in gear to leave, I checked my phone and saw a notification from Google telling me that legendary wrestling manager and commentator, Bobby “The Brain” Heenan has passed away at the age of 73. Boy can that put a real damper on your day. And I’ll say this…I’ve been looking for a reason to write another one of these columns recently and coming up empty, but while I’ve now found a reason to write one, I really hate that I have to add yet another entry to my “Career Retrospective/Tribute” section here.

Dee & I run down what’s been going on recently in the world of Professional Wrestling, talking about WWE starting down their “Road to WrestleMania” with the Royal Rumble coming in just over a week, injuries that are causing troubles for WWE along with a number of other topics including Sting being inducted into the Hall of Fame. We also talk this week about some of the moments when we “marked out” for what was happening in the wrestling world, when all the stars were aligned for us as wrestling fans and it was an amazing time to be a wrestling fan. As always, if you have any questions, requests or ideas for the show…please inbox me at: marc@marcstwocents.com and I’ll probably even read your email on the air. Thanks for listening!

So a couple of weeks ago on the Marking Out w/Marc & Dee Podcast, I tasked myself with writing up a blog explaining the origins of this show I’ve created and writing about my aspirations and goals for it. So without any further adieu, away we go…

As I told my cousin at this past December’s Kick Christmas Party, I’m gonna let ya in on a little secret that not a lot of people know about me, and that’s the fact that I’m a really big wrestling fan. I know, I know…HUGE shocking news, right? All kidding aside, I’m approaching 25 years in my wrestling fandom.

My Wrestling Fandom

I first started watching wrestling as a kid on Sunday mornings after coming home from church. I’d usually find Continue reading »

Davey Boy Smith — we knew him as “the British Bulldog” — passed away while vacationing in British Columbia, Canada.  He was 39 years old.

At present, no official cause of death is known, though published reports have suggested either a heart attack or an accidental choking death may be possibilities.  In any case, what is certain is this: the wrestling world has lost another performer at far too young an age. Continue reading »
