Is it going to happen again? Just ask that question about the WWE Tag Team Championship. It is funny because it seemed that WWE had made a turn and were bringing back the Tag Team Division. There is some talent; there was a bringing back of some old favorites for nostalgia, there seemed to be a push for the fan favorites, the Usos.

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

It’s time for the latest induction into the BITD Hall of Great, Great Men. This time we honor Danny Trejo, a man who is great both on and off screen!
