NXT arRIVAL (February 27, 2014) – Full Sail University (Winter Park, Florida) – Main Event: Bo Dallas vs. Adrian Neville (NXT Championship) – Announcers: Tom Phillips, William Regal, and Byron Saxton.

I signed up for the WWE Network the first day it was available and I’ve been gorging on the network since Monday night. I’ve watched the RAW Backstage Pass post-game show (and wondered if the existence of this show will kill the post-TV RAW dark match), an ECW match between Terry Funk and Jimmy Snuka, WrestleMania VI (and suffered through some playback issues that have already been corrected), this week’s Main Event, WrestleMania Rewind, Countdown (Top 10 Catchphrases), and Legends of Wrestling, with “Mean” Gene, Piper, Michael Hayes, DDP, and Jim Ross.

Everyone that I’ve talked to loves the WWE Network, and almost everyone has a playlist similar to mine – some of the new stuff and a big…

EGreen Goes Face2Face in New Album

E Green WV Rap Face2Face

As a musician, you rarely get to witness the progression of another musician’s project from start to finish.
