This is my inaugural album review here on my blog. I don’t consider myself by any means a “professional” music critic. I am here to share my thoughts on a given album based on what I like/dislike about it.

This is great news for most wrestling fans as this pays tribute to an unforgettable legend in the squared circle. As we all know Macho Man passed away this past May. His legacy will continue in WWE ’12 as he is making his debut to the long standing WWE franchise.
What can I say, I haven’t had as much time for my blog as I would like to. However it has been FAR too long since I have last established any form of contact on here. This time I am not going to guarantee anything but I certainly would like to nail out some more articles while I have the time. Now onto my latest article….. Continue Reading
