The Official WrestleMania 32 Drinking Game

WrestleMania 32 Logo

WrestleMania 32 will take place on April 3, 2016 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas. Once again this year, Pip, Mark and I will renew our feud with the most fearsome structure known to guys who pretend they’re much younger than they actually are… The Beeramid. Starting way back with WrestleMania 25 Drinking game, we’ve chronicled our rules here on the site. I have to say it’s awesome to be able to look back at … Continue reading

The 406 Northlane Move Out Letter

406 Northlane Front Door

For Throwback Thursday I wanted to share something that I recovered when I was removing some stuff from the server where this site was originally hosted. This is the letter that we received the day we finally moved out of 406. Looking back at it now it’s certainly not something I’m proud of, but it definitely brings back some very vivid, and dare I say outstanding, memories. On a side note, our landlady Rachel passed … Continue reading

Swimming With Piranhas By Howard Brody

Swimming With Piranhas - Howard Brody

This review has been a long time coming. Partially because it took me forever and a day to finish the book. Swimming with Piranhas: Surviving the Politics of Professional Wrestling was written by former president of the National Wrestling Alliance (NWA) Howard Brody. In it, he gives a first hand account of how he managed to navigate the political backroom dealings that plague the world of professional wrestling. He goes into (with great… sometimes too great) … Continue reading

TBT – The Many Faces of Buford

The Many Faces of Buford (8)

Sorry for the late Throwback Thursday post but I said I’d try to roll them out weekly and dammit I’m going to try and stick to that. Buford was a “Founding Father” of 406 Northlane and I think it’s fair to say he was always, and still to this day is, the life of the party. This particular photo album was pulled directly from a backup I’ve got of the site. Ladies and gentlemen, I … Continue reading

What’s Changed With Roman Reigns?

Roman Reigns

We’re less than 2 months removed from Tables, Ladders & Chairs (2015). At that PPV, Roman Reigns lost his match to Sheamus and then absolutely went berserk after the match beating the holy hell out of the League of Nations, Sheamus and HHH to a thunderous ovation. The crowd was actually chanting, “Thank you Roman!” The next night, Reigns captured the heavyweight championships in one of the best RAWs we’ve seen in recent memory. The overwhelming … Continue reading

Bump & A Beer – Fat Tony’s – Kalamazoo, MI

Beer Shots - Fat Tony's - Kalamazoo, MI

It’s been some time since I did a Beer Shots piece here on the site. When I think “shot and a beer” I’m thinking Miller and Jack and here it is. Taken at Fat Tony’s – Kalamazoo, MI which is sadly now closed. A shot of Jack Daniel’s and a cold Miller Lite to wash it down. Not sure I could ask for anything more. Share Some 406!

TBT – Indiana University Homecoming 2001

Indiana University Homecoming 2001 (1)

Way back in the day (circa 2002) this site looked something like this. Back then, I had a feature on the site called “Pics From 406”. It was a collection of the (very few) photos that I took during college. Fewer still have been ported over to this site and are located here. Well, I was going through my hard drive last night and ran across those photos and since my memory is getting really bad in … Continue reading

Royal Rumble (2016) – Mania Takes Shape

Royal Rumble 2016 - HHH Wins

Last night, the WWE held its annual Royal Rumble event at the Amway Center in Orlando, Florida. The Rumble is thought of as the beginning of the “Road to WrestleMania” and is traditionally one of my favorite PPVs of the year. The last two years have seen some pretty serious morning after backlash with Batista winning in 2014 and Roman Reigns (and not Daniel Bryan) winning last year. I realize as I sit down to write … Continue reading

Rumbling Toward Mania This Sunday

Royal Rumble 2016 Preview

First I’ve got to apologize. Well, I’m apologizing to my readers who aren’t wrestling fans. My blog becomes VERY wrestling centric this time of year and that will continue all the way through WrestleMania season in April. You’ve been warned. Quite frankly, this is the best time of year to be a wrestling fan. The Road to WrestleMania officially kicks off on Sunday evening at the 2016 Royal Rumble. The Rumble is traditionally my second … Continue reading

The Force Awakens (2015) – 2nd Viewing Review

The Force Awakens (2015)

I finally got to see The Force Awakens for the second time the other night. When I wrote my opening night review I mentioned that I’d post another review after I’d seen the film again that would be spoiler filled. Here it is. SPOILER ALERT: This review will talk openly about plot points of the film. If you want to experience the film as it was intended please watch it before reading this review. I’ve heard … Continue reading

WWE Encyclopedia Updated & Expanded

WWE Encyclopedia (2012)

To say I’m behind on my blog here would be an understatement. I just went through and cleaned up my drafts. (IE, removed stuff that I’d started and won’t bother finishing because it’s no longer topical or relevant). I’m still left with over 50 drafts. And that DOESN’T include at least a dozen or so that I know are coming but I’ve not officially started. All of that said, I figured tonight is as good … Continue reading
