  • Today is the biggest day of the year for fans of pro wrestling.  WWE WrestleMania takes place tonight in New Orleans, LA.  We recommend Wrestling Observer for your best coverage of the event.
  • We are sad to report another pro wrestler death.  Terry Garvin (Simms) part of the famous Beauty & The Beast combo who wrestled in Memphis and Continental and USWA in the late 1980s and early 1990s passed away today.  No details presently but we should have more tomorrow.
  • We won't be watching WWE WrestleMania tonight.  When It Was Cool will be in Tuscaloosa, AL to see classic rock acts Don Felder (of The Eagles), REO Speedwagon, and Styx in concert.  We will have the convert review up tomorrow.
  • Today's When It Was Cool Network podcast is the much anticipated DragonKing Dark Episode 108 titled "The Problem is You".  This episode has gotten rave reviews from those who have listened to it.
