Anyone who watched the entire hour broadcast and didn’t become a fan of these three must not have a beating heart. This was by no means a puff piece on the WWE or NXT, but an emotional ride through the eyes of three men with the personal drive and desire to succeed on professional wrestling’s biggest stage.

ESPN has suspended reporter Britt McHenry for one week following her verbal altercation with an employee from a towing company after McHenry felt her car was wrongfully towed.

Employee: “Well let’s get you out of here quickly.”
McHenry: “Yep that’s all you care about just taking people’s money. With no education, no skill set, just wanted to clarify that.”
