Buff Bagwell On Having Sex As a Gigolo, Getting Fired From WWE, His Mom Winning the WCW Tag Titles, MoreMay 24, 2014
uff Bagwell is in Cleveland this weekend for AIW Wrestling’s JT Lightning Invitational Tournament and I caught up with him before he got in the ring. He was very open to talk about his WCW career, his (short lived) time in WWF and how he got fired from there, and also talked about his new job as a male escort.
Last Wednesday, thousands of fans packed into Tower City Center to welcome the cast of the new movie The Fault In Our Stars. Cleveland was one of four cities who voted to host a special Q&A as part of the “Demand Our Stars Tour”.
I was in New Orleans this weekend for WrestleMania 30 and as you know, I love me some wrestling. The day after the big event, I chatted with The Immortal Hulk Hogan about how long Daniel Bryan will be the champ, why he called the Superdome the “Silverdome”, The Undertaker’s streak coming to an end and much more.
Five months before the NFL season begins, the Cleveland Browns are in the spotlight on April 11th when Draft Day hits theaters. Not only was it filmed here in Cleveland last summer (without the Shoreway being shutdown might I add) it is all about our Brownies and the lead up to the ever important draft day. Kevin Costner plays Sonny Weaver Jr., the fictional Browns GM who is under a lot of pressure to shake things up with the franchise and in a story line that feels all too real, he has to turn the team’s losing record around.
Captain America: The Winter Soldier called Cleveland its home for a good chunk of last summer. But filming in the city caused some major headaches as several streets (oh, and a little thing called the Shoreway) were shut down for some huge chase scenes filled with plenty of explosions. I know firsthand that sitting in the traffic that it caused wasn’t fun at the time, but it’s almost a year later now and the payoff on the big screen is well worth it.
