“Get It Free” Review 2017, All Survey, No Products

CLEVELAND, OH — I suppose the old saying may hold true. If it seems to good to be true, it probably is. E-Mails that do not stop, and pushy salesmen, annnnnd worst of all… no socks.

Allow me to preface this article by saying that I can not conclusively say that the spam came directly from these surveys, the calls and e-mails began within days of taking the survey. I can certainly verify that this is a major waste of my time and I received no products. So I’d like to save your time.

While swiping through snapchat, I saw this ad:

IMG_2201

Free Under Armour Socks? Sounds great! However I learned quickly that this would be far from free.

For about 20 minutes I would fill out survey after survey, all linking to or forwarding to another survey. If you reach the end of a survey and are not forwarded, there is not link to click request your product. Annnnd here comes the worst part.

After taking the survey, and selecting that I was interested in hearing about new career opportunities, I have been spammed constantly by different job posting websites. Even after hitting unsubscribe, you are then messaged by additional companies. I unsubscibe JobRight and get an email from JobSerious, then CareerAlerts, then Candidate Point, then Hireable…

And lets not forget the phone calls. Companies calling, very rude and aggressive salespeople…when asked to be removed from the call list, being told no. If you hang up and try to call back to speak with a manager, the number is not in service.

In conclusion, under absolutely no circumstance would I recommend trying “Get It Free.”

BREAKING: Paul George to Oklahoma City Thunder, means what for Cleveland?

CLEVELAND, OH– The hopes of PG to CLE are done.

Its official. Paul George to the Thunder . A trade breaking late on Friday evening has ended the hopes of one super team and began a shocking new one.

This tweet from ESPN broke the internet:

With Oklahoma City, George now joins the reigning MVP in Russel Westbrook.

The cavs… now possibly will look toward a Carmelo Anthony trade. Mello is ready to head out of New York.

Some speculation was a Knicks buy out of Melo which would allow the Cavs to sign him for next to nothing, I don’t see that happening.

New York gave up the house for a chance at signing Melo originally, he won’t be able to leave without giving some value.

Expect a trade that will still bring Mello to the Cavs at a steal, should the Cavs finally make a move during this free agency. Remember, they are working without a GM at this point.

PRE SHOW

Rusev vs Big Cass

Both of these are some of my favorites in the company right now so it’s slightly disappointing to see them both on he preshow. That said, this rivalry needs to end fast. I am not a fan of the attitude era style connection with Enzo and Lana. Rusev wins via a count out, but in all reality, no one comes out of this quick match much of a winner.

GRADE: D

TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP

The New Day (c) vs Shaemus and Cesaro

The new day is the longest reigning championshions in history, and tonight, they showed why. A matchup that will certainly set the tone for a PPV with great potential. In the end, Cesaro saccrifices himself so that Shaemus can pin Kofi for the win.

I have mixed feelings about the results. The match was fantastic, but I like the New Day as Tag Team Champions. Perhaps this will open the door for Big E to make a US Title run? He seems the most likely of the three to have a singles push. Vince digs body builders, Kofi is in a different stage in his career, and X seems more fit for the 205 lineup.

The gimic to have Shaemus take both belts seemed a little too remenicent of team Hell No or Miz/Mizdow, but hey, take what you can get.

GRADE: A-

  • – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

SAMI ZAYNE v BRAUN STROWMAN

Surprisingly, I am one of the few I believe that actually enjoy this storyline. Braun Strowman is a monster that has monster potential (in fact many diva’s have said Braun is one of their favorite comedians backstage) and has a possible face run in his distant future as well. So placing Sami in a position where he is battling for his career on the flagship makes a ton of sense.

Braun had Sami right where he wanted him before letting up and asking Mick Foley to throw in the towel. Sami survives the ten minutes after some wasted time pleading foley not to end the match. This keeps the story going, likely enraging Strowman, revitalizing Zayne, and deepening the distrust with Foley who had plannd to trade Zayne to Smackdown for Eva Marie. A bit short of a match to really get much going, it told its story and was decent. Wouldn’t stand on it’s own too well I don’t believe, yet, it fits its story line to perfection.

GRADE: B

  • – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

SETH ROLLINS v CHRIS JERICHO! 

These two are masters of their craft. Just a filler match for both of these two. Jericho is headed to a match with Kevin Owens, and Rollins is bound to HHH.

GRADE: B-

  • – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

RICH SWANN v T.J. PERKINS v THE BRIAN KENDRICK

(CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPIONSHIP! )

Decent match, right along with what we have seen with the 205 crew. Rich Swann pins T.J. Perkins.

The most memorable moment of the match comes after it’s completion as tonight we get the return of Neville. A heel turn in his return, Neville looks much larger than the rest of the 205 division. He makes quick work of Swann and Perkins both in and outside of the ring before walking out.

GRADE: B+

 

  • – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

SASHA BANKS v CHARLOTTE FLAIR

(WOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP! )

There  has been so much talk from the online wrestling community with hate about this rivalry going too long, that is the buauty of the internet… you can be wrong.

This will be remembered as the greatest rivalry in WWE women’s wrestling since Trish and Lita. This rivalry has set the new tone for women’s wrestling. Hell In A Cell, Falls Count Anywhere, IronMan Match…. it is only appropriate this matchup would go to overtime.

With a 2-1 lead, Sash was in the Figure-4 for several minutes before tapping out with ony seconds left in the match.

—-Charlotte Flair is already a Hall Of Famer, Open our reasoning here—-

Bleeding from the nose and mouth in a barbaric scene not seen in the women’s division in recent memory, Charlotte locked in the Figure four…. turned it into the fiture eight and locked in the final decision.

One of the greatest rivalries not only in the women’s division but all of wrestling.

GRADE: A+

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

KEVIN OWENS v ROMAN REIGNS

(UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP!)

Again, the other half of a pair of filler matches. the roadmaps have been drawn for the foreseeable future. Rollins v HHH, and Owens v Jericho…. or so it seemed?

Jericho came back out to help Kevin Owens, Owens retains the title and we get another mini Shield reunion. Not sure where this is going honestly, for Roman Reigns. This doesn’t advance any storyline. Roman can still work.

GRADE: C+

 

– – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – – –

OVERALL : B

Really enjoyed the show until the very final minutes of the show. Nothing really advances… my buddy Triple J said it best… the finale was better suited for an episode of Raw. Titles changed hands, superstars returned, at least one 5-star match…. Good PPV.

Top 5: WWE Events To Debut In Ohio

Looking back at the best WWE PPVs to debut in Ohio!

CLEVELAND, OH (TM216) — For all of the jokes that go around about WWE creative, one thing is for certain, they have (for the most part) kept us entertained for decades. At the forefront of that innovation has been the city of Cleveland vital role in launching new PPV’s.

There is a fascinating connection between Ohio and the “revolutionary force in sports entertainment.” You see, Cleveland has always held a prominent role in WWE  story lines from recently the return of Brock Lesnar, to a 2008 return of the Undertaker at Unforgiven, to the first ever battle between WWE, WCW, and ECW on PPV… more on that to come.

One final thing to mention with that; Cleveland was one of the original five cities chosen to hold a WWE PPV. New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Detroit, and Cleveland. To me… that… is pretty cool.

IMPORTANT: Please take a second to subscribe to let us fellow pro-wrestling fanatics of Cleveland e-mail you our top stories once per week by clicking here.

With all of that Cleveland history, we now take a look back, with a special top three version of Top Five: WWE PPV’s to originate in Ohio.

#3.) Invasion – Gund Arena – 2001

For our dedicated younger audience, that is the original name of Quicken Loans Arena. For those lucky enough to have attended this event in person… what a show. I was unfortunately not at his particular event. Lets set the table, WWE and WCW were neck and neck for the top two companies in sports entertainment. Both regularly made stops in Cleveland (yes, I remember the joy of rocking my first Sting mask.) However, WWE would come out on top -purchasing WCW during an episode of raw that was actually in… u guessed it Cleveland! (future blog?) Talent from WCW would join the WWE roster in what was called an Invasion. The events would culminate in this PPV, in which team WWE was turned on by team leader Stone Cold, giving victory to the outsiders. One of the great events in Cleveland PPV history.

#2.) King of the Ring – Nutter Center – 1993

That is correct Dayton, Ohio, YOU JUST MADE THE LIST!

WWE’s own version of the NCAA tournament originates right here in the Buckeye State. One of my personal favorites, this is the same event that years later would go on to launch the career of Stone Cold. However, back to Dayton, with a win over Bam Bam Bigelow in the finals Bret Hart was crowned your inaugural King of The Ring. Jerry Lawler attacking Bret during his coronation that night ignited one of the most iconic rivalries of the early 1990’s. Shawn Michaels with Diesel also defeated Crush for the IC championship. June 13,1993, the first King of the Ring.

-WHO IS THE TOP WWE STAR BORN IN OHIO? Our Top 5 list clicking here–

– – – Not So…. great…- – –

In Cleveland… there is a saying “just a bit outside” that was born in the movie Major League. So before we reveal #1… Lets take a second and remember some of the less than perfect moments that were a swing and a miss right here in Ohio.

  • The Championship Scramble – Unforgiven 2008. The match is almost universally seen on the lower end of match ideas for the company. A match that seemed great in theory.. still does honestly but just didn’t pan out live. The idea was that multiple competitors battle in a timed match in which whoever gets the pin becomes temporary champion… the individual to receive the final pin or submission at the end of a selected time limit becomes champion. It wasn’t terrible, but it wasn’t great. Cleveland is the only city to have hosted this match type. It has never been used since.
  • CM Punk Quits – Raw 2013. WWE and Punk had been at ends for years. However in the Raw following the 2013 Royal Rumble, CM Punk had decided it was time to call it quits. Punk was allegedly scheduled to work Triple H at that year’s Wrestlemania, Triple would end up facing Daniel Bryan. The show in Cleveland was the second straight Raw in the 216 to be promoted as having Punk… but left with no Punk… drats.

NOW ITS TIME!

#1.) Surivivor Series – Richfield Coliseum -1987

The rest of the top three can be argued, but this one is likely unanimous as the number one pick. This is where it all started, in previous home of your Cleveland Cavaliers. 

Prior to November 26, 1987, WWE fans were left with only one major wrestling event per year, Wrestlemania. Survivor Series became the first secondary PPV option and the only other PPV to be held in 1987 other than Wrestlemania III (FYI: there were 15 total PPVs in 2016). Held on Thanksgiving Day, it can be assumed that Vince was looking to build on extreme success the company found in Hogan v Andre at Wrestlemania III. The two would produce the company’s attendance record which stood for 29 years(broken at WM32) Each wrestler produced team’s of four for the elimination style main event, and the rest is history. Survivor Series would return to Richfield the following year in 1988, then once again in 1992. In following years, Survivor Series would become remembered as the PPV that future hall of famer Undertaker made his debut (1990). The event is now the second longest running PPV for the company behind only Wretlemania, and it started in the home of your Cavaliers. (Fun Fact: The next time you are at Quicken Loans arena on the main concourse, an original portion of the basketball court hangs on the wall near the elevators close to section 130, take a pic next time if you see it and let us know you found it!)

OHIO! We Rank The Top Five WWE Superstars To Come Out Of OHIO!!!

CLEVELAND, OH (TM216) —Cleveland is the home of champions, from UFC to NBA, from CHL to MLB. With the gold flying around Ohio lately, it is time that we take a look at the WWE, and Ohio’s contribution to the squared circle.

Obviously not all representatives could make the top five, so right off the top I give you some rapid fire home towners. Dana Brooke was recently the sidekick of Charlotte Flair, but hales from Seven Hills, Ohio, just south of Cleveland. That is the same city that Abyss calls home, however while the masked former tag team partner of A.J. Styles was once rumored to be offered a contract from WWE, he never signed. The current Smackdown Women’s Champion Alexa Bliss is off to a great start by earning the gold, but still too soon for an all-time great. Taking you deep into the archives, Dr. X was a Fremont native, who lettered at Ohio State  and would go on to win the WWWF tag championship and challenge Bruno Sammartino for the World Title in the mid 60’s. Perry Saturn saw much of his success in WCW and ECW, although he would go on to hold the WWF Hardcore and European Championships. Cincinnati’s Dean Ambrose is one of the most over wrestlers in WWE right now and is part of one of the great trio’s in history with The Shield, however he has simply not had the tenure just yet to make our top five. With that, it is on to the show!

—Alexa Bliss wins the Championship Belt!? Here’s why it’s Best For Business—

HONORABLE MENTION

Memorable Heel: Carmella DeCesare (Avon Lake)

Before the modern Carmella would be FABULOUS, there was Carmella DeCesare, and she was notorious for heat with the WWE Universe as a part of the 2004 Diva Search. Although she would finish the competition as a runner-up, DeCesare was indeed hired along with Candice Michelle, Maria Kanellis, Michelle McCool, and winner Christy Hemme. She would fall short in a Pillow Fight Lingerie match against Hemme, and was released a few weeks after that match at Taboo Tuesday. Her short time will be remembered for the tremendous heat received. Since leaving the company she married for Cleveland Browns quarterback, Jeff Garcia.

Next Big Name: Johnny Gargano (Cleveland)

Johnny Wrestling (a play on Johnny “Football” Manziel) is brand new to the WWE scene. Those familiar with NXT may recognize him as one half of the current NXT Tag Team Champions. He has not yet gotten the call up, but to quickly give a nod to his illustrious indy background, he has won titles in; Chikara, Dragon Gate, AIW, Cleveland All-Pro, IWC, and was ranked #51 in pro wrestling illustrated’s top 500 singles wrestlers.

—Is Charlotte Flair Already Hall Of Fame Bound? We Break It Down—

TOP FIVE WWE WRESTLERS TO COME OUT OF OHIO:

5. Brian Pillman – (Cincinnati)

For eleven years, Brian Pillman, was a Lunatic Fringe very similar to Dean Ambrose (ironic they share a home town.) In a time that the company was transitioning to the Attitude Era, Pillman was at the center of some of the company’s most controversial story lines. Prior to his time in WWE the “Loose Cannon” was an NWA Tag champions with then Stunning Steve Austin (Stone Cold.) In fact it was a rivalry with Steve Austin in which the story line called for Pillman to pull a gun on Stone Cold that caused much controversy in the 90s. For his pivotal role in the attitude era, pillman lands at number five.

4. Dolph Ziggler – (Cleveland)

No shock here. He is a proud North East Ohioan that is visible at Cavs games, Browns Games, and rocks local hoodies on air often on WWE programming. Ziggler is an adamant advocate for his two alma maters, St. Eds and Kent State University (fun fact, Dana Brooke is also a graduate of Kent State) Ziggler left Kent as the all time winningest wrestler in program history. Since entering WWE Developmental in 2004, Ziggler can boast almost every major title: World Heavyweight Champion 2x, Intercontinental Champion 5x, US Champion.

3. The Miz – (Parma)

Love him or hate him, The Miz has quietly piled up one of the most decorated careers of any superstar on the active roster today. (WWE Champion, 6x Intercontinental Champion, 2x US Champion, 4x Tag Team Champion, PWI #1 singles wreslter of the year 2011) Mike Mizanin is a graduate of Normandy High School and attended Miami of Ohio University. His appearance on The Real World in 2001 lead Miz to national fame. Since beginning his wrestling career on the indy scene (rarely talked about) in 2003, Miz has gone from Ultimate Pro Wrestling to Wrestlemania headliner. Miz is entering his 13th year with the WWE and still holds prominent role in the company.

2. Al Snow – (Lima)

What does everybody want? Yes, the man that carried around a mannequin head (in a strange way the original mannequin challenge?) is a native of the Buckeye State. Tenure alone has Al Snow in a rare air. Before joining ECW in 1995, Al Snow had already been in the business for thirteen years, starting with Ohio’s Midwest Championship Wrestling in 1982. He would garner much of his attention early on in the mid 90s with ECW. Snow remained with WWE on and off from 1995-2007, winning various titles: European Champion, Hardcore Champion 6x, and Tag Team Champion (with Mick Foley). He is still active in the business today and is currently signed with TNA.

1. “Macho Man” Randy Savage – (Columbus)

Widely regarded as one of the best wrestlers of all time, macho is undoubtably one of the biggest names from the golden era of WWE. Savage grew up in Zanesville and was signed by the St. Louis Cardinals out of High School to play baseball.  He gave up baseball in 1974 to pursuit a career in the squared circle. During his 32-years in pro wrestling, Macho Man won 29 championships and headlined Wrestlemania’s 4, 5, and 8. Although Savage passed away in 2011, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame in 2015. His superstar inside the ring translated in fame outside as well, acting in movie’s including Spider-Man and Bolt. As well as television appearances on Baywatch, Walker Texas Ranger, and Mad About You. His real life wife Miss Elizabeth was adored by the WWE Universe as well, with their on-air marriage one of the most memorable moments in WWE history.
