CM Punk and the World of Pro Wrestling

In January 2014, the night after the Royal Rumble Pay Per View, the wrestling world was turned upside down by one of its top stars.  CM Punk.  He approached WWE head Vince McMahaon and, in that meeting, wound up leaving the company, never to be seen in a WWE ring again.

Speculation was rampant about the reasons behind Punk's departure, and the dirt sheets had a field day.  Some claimed that Punk left because he was unhappy with the direction of his character, some…

Today, I went to the most recent Fathom Event at my local movie theater.  This special event was a performance of the Tony-winning play called Billy Elliot:  The Musical Live.  What a tremendous show!  It was an amazing afternoon.

Young actor Elliot Hanna plays the title role in the musical, though he has not been the only Billy Elliot over the years.  In fact, the conclusion of the show included all of the Billy Elliots from over the years involved in a…

There is actually very little that would connect the two versions together.  In the comic,Baymax can transform into a…
