WWEI'm not sure how many of you have been following this aspect of my personal journey, but since January I've been involved in a Fitness Challenge, and to-date I'm down 35lbs - under 300 for the first time in nearly a decade - and building muscle through a mix of cardio and strength training. I often start the week my checking out WWE Monday Night Raw while working out at the gym, so I was pretty excited to learn that WWE is getting into the fitness game with a new line of WWE Fitness Series DVDs from Lionsgate Home Entertainment. On December 2, things kick-off with a his-and-hers launch of DVDs from "The Authority" - WWE Power Series: Triple H and WWE Fit Series: Stephanie McMahon. I'm planning to give the Triple H set a try, but in the meantime, check out the full specs on the workouts contained within...

WWE"Breast cancer is not just an issue that affects women, it affects families," explained WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon as we met up in Chicago once more this past Monday to celebrate the launch of WWE's third annual partnership with Susan G. Komen in an effort to raise funds and awareness to smackdown the terrible disease that touches millions of families each year. "My mother-in-law is a breast cancer survivor," she continued, elaborating on how cancer is an issue with a very personal connection to her family, and one very concerning since she and husband Paul Levesque (Triple H) are raising three daughters of their own. As National Breast Cancer Awareness Month continues, WWE has "gone pink," and on the October 6 installment of Monday Night Raw on USA, there will be a few special guests...

WWEHaving now taken the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge and having made a donation to the cause myself, I'm not sure how many more videos I can post about it... but since her husband Triple H already stepped up, it's only appropriate to share the challenge video from WWE Chief Brand Officer Stephanie McMahon. Shot last night after her victorious match against Brie Bella at WWE SummerSlam in Los Angeles, Stephanie took on a full garbage can of ice to answer the challenge of Maria Menounos in an effort to raise funds and awareness for The ALS Association in their efforts to combat Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) aka "Lou Gerhig's disease."

#WWEDadsNovember 7, 1985. I was just two weeks past my ninth birthday when my Dad and I hopped in the car and headed north to the Rosemont Horizon for THE WRESTLING CLASSIC, a WWF pay-per-view event for the newly-launched WRESTLEVISION service. It was there that I witnessed some of the true "legends of wrestling" live and in-person... and I can still vividly recall those larger-than-life figures like The Iron Sheik (who entered with a giant Iranian flag), Randy "Macho Man" Savage and Miss Elizabeth, Hulk Hogan, Rowdy Roddy Piper, the Junkyard Dog and Nikolai Volkoff, all flying from the ropes and hitting the mat hard. This was at that time when Sports Entertainment was really becoming a huge deal, and it was something that families would enjoy together, kids would discuss at school, and "Hulkamania" would become widespread while Hogan and others began appearing in cartoons, in movies, recording albums, and selling a ton of action figures. Nearly 20 years later, history is repeating itself... but on a little different level.
