09-03 FIVE STAR RADIO previews UFC and Bellator better and in more detail than anyone including you!

Bear witness as Mike is baaaaaaack. This time previewing this FRIDAY'S MMA shows. Both or them. (More UFC than Bellator but still both.) a breakdown not just of Jacare and Mousasi but a hyper specific winner prediction and much justified anti-Armenian ranting. Why is Overeem both a great and not-great striker? BEN something ROTHWELL!! Why to pick for and against Lauzon. Plus: Bellator. Who is fighting. Who isn't. Who do we guess is fighting. Those should be questions but they're almost statements at this point. Anyways. It's an hour of MMA talk bc there just isn't enough audio to listen to from Mr. Mike.

Sept 5 Doc Young's Wrestling Weekly: Vince McMahon: Creative Genius or Copycat?

As the title indicates, the question is asked after one of the worst Raw shows in recent (and probably long term) memory: is Vince McMahon a creative genius?  Was he at one time and the gift is gone?  Or is he someone who took the ideas from other companies and gets credit because he placed them on the biggest platform? Of course, we'll talk about this week's Raw and also cover how much territory bookers worked alone vs. bouncing ideas off of others and talk a little NFL on opening weekend.  By the way, if you venture over to our show thread on the board, you'll find a bonus question we'd love to have your opinion on.  Thanks for listening and have a great weekend~!
