One of my favorite things to do in my free time is to go on eBay, search “WWE” and sort the results from “price: highest first”. Private collectors and WWE fans alike are selling incredible pieces of memorabilia on eBay including ring worn tights, boots, trunks, pieces of tables, and more. The newest addition to the WWE eBay family: A giant piece of Braun Strowman’s double bass cello that he used to smash Elias with on RAW!
The auction has, at this point, less than two days left, however, you can still buy the autographed piece for around $700.
Secondly, the infamous Chicago crowd hijacked yet another show last night when WWE returned to the United Center for the first time in recent memory. First of all, Brock Lesnar faced Kane in a highly anticipated match, which lasted 30 seconds. Furious, fans began chants of “Bullsh*t” before completely ruining the main event of the night. Roman Reigns defeated John Cena with a spear to close out the show, but was ultimately drowned out by chants of “CM Punk”, “You both suck”, “Rusev Day” and “This is boring”.
Lastly, in a recent interview with Ring Rust Radio, Jeff Hardy revealed that he will be donating his brain to concussion research when he dies. I am really happy that Jeff is doing this because he is a great example of someone who took great risks in their career, possibly leading to head injury. Studying Jeff’s brain once he passes away will hopefully advance concussion science, CTE research and treatment, as well as save lives and increase concussion awareness.
My wife read where Kevin Nash announced that and I said, ‘Oh my God I have to do that.’ I for sure will do whatever it takes and I would love to be a part of that. It’s a huge serious issue in wrestling. I’ve rung my bells so many times especially back in the day when chair shots to the head were legal. My goodness, I took so many of those. Luckily, I’m only aware of about two or three concussions that I have had but there’s really no way of telling how many overall. When Nash announced he was doing that I was on board and I didn’t know that RVD did as well. That really inspired me to do the same thing.”
Jeff Hardy joins Kevin Nash, Mick Foley, RVD, and John Cena on the list of wrestlers who have agreed to donate their bodied to science.
