Cheap Pops Special Report- The End of Pro Wrestling Syndicate/The Rise of WrestlePro

By Chris Delloiacono and Mike Maillaro

Mike: Last Saturday, Chris and I were scheduled to go to a Pro Wrestling Syndicate show which was going to feature a massive interpromotional angle with Jeff Jarrett’s Global Force Wrestling.  PWS is a local indy promotion that we both love, and which has gotten a lot of coverage in Cheap Pops over the last few months.  The show was cancelled because New Jersey got hit with a massive snowstorm.

Fans in St. Louis Leave Parting Gifts for Rams

Breaking up is hard to do. Especially when the one doing the leaving is only one of 32 options you have. So it's understandable that this break-up can only end one way. Badly.

With the NFL owner's vote that allows the Rams to pack up operations and move to Los Angeles in 2016 the fans wasted no time in offering up some parting gifts for the team:

And others prefer to just burn bridges-er jerseys:

Head Coach/OC Duo That's Perfect for the Philadelphia Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles off-season got started a little early with the firing of Chip Kelly a week before their finale against the Giants. So as their search for a new Head Coach begins, the solution to success may be nesting at their fingertips.

With all kinds of candidates lined up for interviews with the Eagles brass, one in particular has already had his. Eagles Offensive Coordinator (and interim head coach) Pat Shurmer. Retaining him will be the best way to solve their QB situation and fix their defense in one fell swoop.

Not as the head coach though. That designation should go to former Philly guy, and current Panthers DC, Sean McDermott.

NLCS: A Boy's Strange Journey to Manhood

I've loved the National Pastime since I was a little kid. So, it's kind of fun as I ponder how much joy and sadness the game of baseball has brought me in life. Right now I'm on a great stretch as the Mets just defeated the Dodgers to setup a NLCS matchup with the Cubs. A relatively unlikely matchup at season's commencement, but one that makes a lot of sense, when you realize just how loaded with exceptional youth both squads are. Breaking down the series isn't what I'm here to do. What I've got for you is an odd journey through life to a series that I simply cannot wait to watch.

New York Giants Doomsday Scenario Brings Ratings Boost for NFL Network

CBS and NFL Network are reporting a 40% increase, in overnight ratings, from last year. The Giants entered the contest having lost their first two games of the season, holding hands with the Philadelphia Eagles at the bottom of the NFC East. A third loss, would have severely threatened the Giants chances at reaching the playoffs, before the end of September.

With a divisional matchup against the Washington Redskins, this game was a playoff game within itself. The Giants first loss came against the Cowboys and starting the year with two divisional losses would have all but eliminated them from contention. It's no surprise that football fans (Giants fans in particular) were locked into, what could be billed as, a mid-September elimination game. The game brought in an 11.9/20 household rating/share.

NFL: 'Not For Losers' Which 0-2 Team Makes the Playoffs?

The NFL is all about parity. This year, however, it's full of 'have's' and 'have not's'. According to ESPN, since 1990, only 22 of the 160 teams to start 0-2 have made the playoffs. With a total of 9 teams still seeking their first win of the 2015 season, let's take a look to see which ones have the best chance of turning things around and marching, or in some cases stumbling, into the playoffs.
