"

While I always come in with a set of questions and game plan for what I'd like to talk with him about, all that gets thrown out the window once I see how the conversation plays.  The result is a bit of jiu-jitsu improvisational jazz.  And the thing that truly makes it work is that Garry doesn't take himself too seriously.

"Stop me if you've heard this one.  Heavyweight gets poked in the eye, ref fails to see it, heavyweight's opponent sneaks in a quick uppercut, heavyweight gets a moment to collect self, captures his opponent's arm into a double wrist lock, sweeps, works to mount and secures the finish via rear naked choke."

Be Honest: How Much Do You Hate This Championship Belt?

"It's a scientific fact that everyone loves championship belts. Sure, pro boxers, grapplers, and UFC fighters are revered for the fancy belts they get to take back to their gyms. But let's face it nobody rocks a championship belt like a professional wrestler.
