Gift from WWE’s Sasha Banks Connects Cop and Community

 

For everything wrestling does to frustrate fans, it does so much more to connect and bring people together. The follow is an example of that. It’s also proof that “wrestling is good.”

Look around the crowd at a WWE Raw event and you’re sure to see people from all walks of life. Rich and poor, young and old, male and female. We’re all just fans once the bells rings.

This past Monday in North Little Rock, Arkansas, the sea of people in the stands included Officer Tommy Norman and his “All Star Crew.”

With more than 1 million followers on Instagram, Norman sets the example for community policing.  He spends as much time out of uniform serving his town of 66,000 as he spends with it on.  In particular, he’s reached out to the African American community in an effort to show that law enforcement can be much more than the negative headlines you see on TV.

One person whose taken note of his positive policing is Sasha Banks., who gave him tickets to Raw.

In true fashion, Officer Norman brought along some of the people he regularly features on his social media account — a group he’s nicknamed “The All-Star Crew” — to watch their first wrestling event.

After the big surprise was revealed, Norman used donations he receives through his Instagram followers to purchase souvenirs for each of his guests.  At one point in the show, he posted the picture below — his guests enamored by what they were watching.

On the way out of the event, Norman posted a video thanking Banks and everyone who made donations to help make the RAW trip a success.  He also made an observation sure to tug at the heartstrings of even the most hardcore of wrestling fans.

“So much going on across the world today — so much hatred and tension — but take the All-Star crew and they’re absolutely happy by the simple things in life.”

Absolute happiness.

An escape from the struggle life can sometimes be is needed for everyone.

Even the most unlikely of pairings — like a police officer and the people he serves.

That’s just another reason why wrestling is good.

LeBron James signs four-year, $153.3 million deal with Lakers

Today it’s not Kim Kardashian for once who is breaking the internet but rather NBA all-star LeBron James.

Earlier today it was revealed by Life and Fame,  that LeBron James had singed a four-year deal with the Lakers worth a wopping $153.3 million.

The announcement was made through his agency, Klutch Sports Group, which announced the deal as $154 million (clearly the agency doesn’t realize you are suppose to round down when you have a .3 decimal!)

ESPN’s Brian Windhorst revealed that the fourth year is a player option. It is the longest deal James has signed since inking a six-year contract with the Miami Heat in 2010. His previous three deals were three years or shorter.

“Words do not express the meaning and the feeling this accomplishment brought to the people of Northeast Ohio,” Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert said in a lengthy statement thanking James. “None of this would have happened if LeBron James did not agree to come back home and lead the Cavaliers to the promised land.

“LeBron is a family man, first. We wish his kids, his wife, Savannah, his mother, Gloria, and LeBron himself nothing but the best in the years and decades ahead. LeBron’s connection to Akron, Cleveland and all of Northeast Ohio will most certainly endure as his commitment to the region and his support of many important causes has been impactful to so many kids and families.

“LeBron, you came home and delivered the ultimate goal. Nothing but appreciation and gratitude for everything you put into every moment you spent in a Cavaliers uniform. We look forward to the retirement of the famous #23 Cavs jersey one day down the line …”

Details on WWE2K19 Cover and Commercial

Pro Wrestling Sheet has learned a commercial was shot this week for WWE2K19 featuring the wrestler on the cover, the pre-order bonus character and an unexpected legend.

Sources tell us AJ Styles will be appearing on the cover of the game and the pre-order bonus character will be Ronda Rousey. Both were present this week in Memphis for the cover reveal shoot.

As you may recall, WWE took the same approach last year by having Seth Rollins on the cover and Kurt Angle as the pre-order bonus character.

In addition, sources tell us Rey Mysterio was on-set and seemed to be playing a big part in the advertisement. Mysterio shared a photo on Instagram this week with Jeff Hardy— the location being tagged as Jupiter — and followers with a keen eye noticed it was definitely a recent picture.

We’re told that’s because Jeff Hardy is also in the commercial, as well as a few other wrestlers.

Mysterio was last in WWE at Greatest Royal Rumble, but most recently wrestled NJPW Dominion.

The official announcement for AJ on the cover is set to go down Monday.
