WWE SmackDown Live Flexes Its Mighty Muscle in Music City

 

WWE Main EventNashville, TN – Okay, I admit it. I was never that big of a wrestling fan. You know why – it seemed fake, was too scripted, so overly dramatic and always over the top. But I had friends who loved it. My college roommate would often reenact a Jimmy “The Superfly” Snuka leap off of his bed straight onto yours truly further alienating me from the entertainment value of the sport.

However, attending the WWE SmackDown Live on August 2nd, 2016 at the Bridgestone Arena in Nashville, Tennessee might have finally tilted me toward fandom – or, at least provided me with extreme appreciation for the empire that Vince McMahon and Company have built over the past four decades.

Tennessee Volunteers - UT VolsNashville, TN – Tennessee dominated the first half and withstood a late Vanderbilt surge to defeat the Commodores, 67-65, on Thursday at Bridgestone Arena and advance to the SEC Tournament quarterfinals.

The Vols (15-18) will next face No. 4 seed LSU (18-13) on Friday in the quarterfinals.
