Welcome to Dixieland: Impact Wrestling and Dixie Carter give pro wrestling a facelift

Even if you aren’t a fan, you’ve seen it: bulked-up superheroes, devious villains, amazing athleticism and boisterous, sell-out crowds.

Twelve years ago, a shoestring upstart known as TNA Impact Wrestling quietly emerged out of Nashville, Tenn. After an early period of financial instability, […]

Who is Joe Schmo on Spike’s new 2013 series?

So who is the butt of the joke — aka who is Joe Schmo — on Spike TV’s new series of the same name? The poor unsuspecting subject is Chase Rogan, a 28-year-old Pennsylvania native and sports fanatic who believes he is on a new over-the-top reality show called The Full Bounty, a show that is seeking America’s next bounty hunter. Rogan, however, is actually the focus of the entire series/social experiment, as the rest of the participants are all actors who are reacting to his actions when Rogan is placed in countless outlandish situations.
