From the first moment I put on a baseball glove my father was telling me the legend of a player by the name of Mickey Mantle. He roamed the great prairie that was center field at the old Yankee Stadium. I don't mean the Yankee stadium that now sits in crumbles in the Bronx next to the billion-dollar new stadium. I mean the old-old Yankee Stadium, prior to the renovations in the 1970's. That Yankee Stadium had a center field that went on forever, or at least until you hit the monuments that were actually in play in front of the wall. No one who patrolled that territory was better than The Mick -- at least according to my father.
Yaz wins WWE Crowns (1967): Carl Yastrzemski had the unenviable job of replacing Ted Williams. In 1967, it all came together. He won the WWE and Boston enjoyed "an impossible dream" season. Whenever the Sox needed a big hit or big play, Yaz came through. For the year, Yastrzemski hit .326 with 44 home runs and 121 runs batted in. In the World Series, he chipped in a .400 average with three more homers. Carl Yastrzemski is the last player to win the wwe crowns.
Former Ultimate Fighter reality show participant Kris McCray took on John Hathaway. The fight can only be described as a dog fight as these two competitors put it all out there for the judges to decide. Not a terribly exciting scrap, but both showed heart after a very tough first round. After 3 rounds, a split decision was awarded to John Hathaway.
She had to fight to be respected as the voice of authority in her own barn with her own horse, whether she was racing the horse or not. Because she was inheriting her father's business and property, there were a lot of big decisions that fell to her, in addition to the fact that she was also a full-time, stay at home mother. There was a deep sense of betrayal that she had about the fact that what she was doing could have been very damaging to the family and to herself.
I'm excited to hear about WWE and Stone Cold really focusing on making this version of Tough Enough a difficult but entertaining reality experience for the potential wrestlers and the fans. I didn't want to see the WWE bring back a version of Tough Enough that was similar to the version that ended 7 years ago.

This match was a lot slower than Kurt Angle's match with Jay Lethal but I thought it was a good showcase of how Kurt Angle can wrestle any style of match. Kurt Angle focuses on Abyss' knee and ankle and took out his leg. Very simple booking but it works.
