WWE DadsPittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger recently challenged WWE COO Triple H to take the Ice Bucket Challenge to help raise funds and awareness for the ALS Association in their efforts to combat Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis (ALS) aka "Lou Gerhig's disease." This morning, right in front of Los Angeles' Staples Center - the battleground for this Sunday's WWE SummerSlam, Triple H answered the challenge and threw down a few of his own. Take a look...

WWEIf you've been in the toy aisles of late, you might've noticed some interestingly-shaped, big-fisted, rubbery little additions to the WWE section in the form of SLAM CITY. I've played with them a bit We have a few of them here at HQ, and they're pretty fun in the sorta slingshot action you can get rolling with them. But the residents of SLAM CITY are a little different - you see, in SLAM CITY, your favorite WWE Superstars have all been forced to get day jobs, and it's all thanks to a mysterious figure called "The Finisher." The adventures have been playing out in a series of stop-motion videos produced by WWE and Mattel's Playground Productions, and after a little break, WWE SLAM CITY has returned with two new episodes that find THE ROCK facing off with "The World's Strongest Man," MARK HENRY over something that would make the TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES envious: Pizza. Check out "Between a Rock and a Pizza" Parts 1 & 2 below, right here on THE ROCK FATHER...

#WWEDadsEarlier this month, when I took the family to a little big adventure called WWE PAYBACK, my girls were each treated to a little gift bag containing some fun new toys, all courtesy of the folks at WWE and their partners. Among the unexpected offerings were a pair of new building sets from The Bridge Direct under the WWE StackDown Universe brand. For quite awhile I've heard parents ask for WWE construction sets, but somehow it had flown under my radar that they'd actually happened - all done by C3 Construction with bricks and figures that are compatible with "major brands," as they say - which means they'll work with LEGO, MEGA BLOKS, KRE-O and the like. Addie and I built Damien Sandow's School of Hard Knocks and the High Flyin' Sin Cara sets... and how are they?

Fatherhood is the greatest responsibility and honor a man can have placed upon him. I never met my biological father, nor did I grow up with a male figure in my home. I didn't grow up with money, a nice home or fancy clothes. In fact, I spent the majority of my childhood living in the projects or with family members. However, thanks to my mom, I had no shortage of love. Because of that I feel very strongly that love, faith, strength and courage are the most important elements of growing and learning at any stage of life. Now, as a father, I strive to demonstrate these in my home because the greatest lesson my kids have taught me is how to love people unconditionally.

#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.
