Powerlifting career

The 24 year old Ewen competed in his first USAPL meet on July 11th at the 5th annual U.S. Open Championships 2010 at the Nova Southeastern University in Davie, Florida. He became not only the top heavyweight lifter but also broke all 4 Florida state raw powerlifting records in the 275-pound class[5] and bested raw national records in the deadlift and total. His lifts included a 611 pound squat, a 490 pound bench press and an outstanding 749 pound deadlift for a 1851 pound raw total.

Ewen also won the USAPL Raw Nationals 2011 in Scranton, Pennsylvania. This time he competed in the super heavyweight division (+275) and broke the raw American and national records in the deadlift (799 lbs) and total (2,039 lbs) in this weight class as well.[4][5]

Although all of his national and American raw records have been broken in 2011 and 2012 by Michael Tuchscherer, Brad Gillingham and Randall Harris,[6][7] Ewen still holds the USAPL Florida State Raw Records in deadlift and total in the SHW divison as well as all 4 raw powerlifting records in the 275-pound class.[5]

Personal Records done in official competition
Squat - 711 lbs (322.5 kg)[4] raw
Bench press - 529 lbs (240 kg)[4] raw
Deadlift - 799 lbs (362.5 kg)[5] raw
Powerlifting Total - 2,039 lbs[5]

Yep, he got his release from ROH, he can work for them, but not obligated to. And he was saying on Twitter how all was fake rumors. We shall find out soon.

Agreed. Much better option IMO. I always liked MVP and Benjamin, would be a great tag team. If they could get them back, they would have a good tag division going. Cara/Rey, Primo/Epico, Santino/Ryder, Gabriel/Kidd, Shelton/MVP, Rhodes/Sandow, Kane/Bryan, not a bad division, even PrimeTime players are a good team, but rather see MVP and Shelton get that spot.

The only problem I see with the tag team division is most of those teams and short term teams. Theres rumors of Mysterio vs Cara at Wrestlemania and obviously Mysterio is already an established singles star. Rhodes and Sandow are future world champs, Kane and Bryan probably wont last a whole lot longer before Bryan gets another big singles push. Bring in tag teams together more often like PTP, although they annoy the s**t out of me. The Usos and Primo/Epico should be on TV every week.

Leave tag team matches to tag teams. No Cena/Ryback vs Ziggler/Punk type crap. Big PPV matches (Shield vs Hell No/Ryback) are one thing but when the main event at every Raw is like that it takes away from real tag teams. Theres 3 hours on Raw every week now. More undercard matches and less soap opera.

VIDEO: Daniel Bryan Meets Young Boy With Brain Cancer


It was just hours after interviewing Daniel Bryan on TribLIVE Radio a couple months ago, that I learned about young Connor Michalek when speaking on the phone to his mother.

Connor is only 6 and has a rare form of brain cancer. All Connor wanted for Christmas was to meet his favorite WWE Superstar. Unfortunatly Make A Wish couldn't help because he already got granted a wish a few years earlier with a trip to Disney World.

With the help of some of us in the Pittsburgh media and a great online campaign, Connor got his chance to meet Daniel Bryan and even a surprise appearance by Kane.

Just standing in the room, the emotion was amazing. Please check out this wonderful meeting:

Good story/article on WWE.com, about ECW 2006 relaunch, http://www.wwe.com/classics/ecw/the-true-story-ecw-relaunch-26078068

Foley, Dreamer, Heyman, Stevie Richards, Joey Styles and Matt Stryker give their true opinions, like how Dreamer and Richards demanded their releases, and how Dreamer told McMahon I QUIT, but never did.
Tribute to the troops is tonight?
