Cue replies of "grow up" and "it's all fake" ;-) but I can't let today go without mentioning the retirement of one of my childhood heroes. My childhood football hero was Roberto Baggio but in the world of "Sports Entertainment" it was the Undertaker.
After a quarter of a century the "Dead Man" finally laid his distinctive black gloves, trenchcoat and hat in the centre of the ring as arguably one of the most iconic wrestling figures of all time finally 'retired' after his match on the grandest stage of all - Wrestlemania.
We all have vices and for me from the late 1980's following the larger than life characters of WWF/WWE has given me the opportunity to immerse myself at times away from 'the real world'. Despite a feud with Hulk Hogan who was everybody's feavourite wrestling in the late 80's / early 90's I quickly warmed to Undertaker and have followed his life in and out of the ring ever since.
We all need to take time out and get away from the hustle and bustle of life and for me wrestling has been one of those quick fixes I needed over the years but after today it will never be the same for me and like all other "sports entertainment" fans today all I can say is #ThankYouTaker
