This week’s #WNSTSweet16 grapples with one of Baltimore’s favorite pastimes

Posted on 01 April 2014 by Luke Jones

The road to WrestleMania culminates next Sunday in New Orleans with the 30th edition of the best spectacle in sports entertainment, so we dedicate this week’s #WNSTSweet16 to the greatest professional wrestling moments in Baltimore history.

Baltimore has a rich pro wrestling history that includes countless moments from WWE (and the WWF and WWWF before it) and WCW as well as a strong presence of smaller promotions such as Ring of Honor and Maryland Championship Wrestling to this day. In fact, WNST.net’s own Nestor Aparicio named a WWE card at the Baltimore Arena on the #WNSTSweet16 list of “must-attend” events for Baltimore sports fans.

Professional wrestling has changed dramatically over the years as the legendary Vince McMahon began referring to his product as “sports entertainment” years ago and began peeling back the curtain on his brand of theatrical athleticism, but Baltimore’s passion hasn’t waned as events are well-attended on a regular basis.

Without further ado, we present the #WNSTSweet16 Greatest Professional Wrestling Moments in Baltimore History:

Top 10 Baseball Distractions

Posted on 13 December 2011 by WNST Staff

Honorable Mention: High School Basketball-Bel Air @ Perry Hall (Wednesday 6:30pm), St. Frances @ John Carroll (Wednesday 7pm); Mixed Martial Arts: Strikeforce-Gilbert Melendez vs. Jorge Masvidal (Saturday 10pm from San Diego live on Showtime)

10. Lyle Lovett and His Acoustic Group (Thursday 7pm Rams Head Live); Bret Michaels (Wednesday 7pm & 10pm Rams Head on Stage); Pietasters (Friday 8pm 9:30 Club), Virginia Coalition (Saturday 8pm 9:30 Club); Devo (Thursday 8pm State Theatre), Phil Vassar (Sunday 8pm State Theatre); Chris Isaak (Monday 7:30pm Birchmere); Anthony Hamilton “Back to Love” available in stores/on iTunes (Tuesday)

I am not a Lyle Lovett fan, but I am a human being. Because I am a human being, I am ABSOLUTELY a fan of this tune. One of the happiest days in my life may have been the day I walked off a hangover into the DC Farmers’ Market and saw a folk band playing the song. If it hadn’t been in DC it would have been the HAPPIEST…

Is there any chance I could go see Bret Michaels and skip everything besides this?

I saw the Pietasters most recently at Artscape this summer. They were fantastic. They always are.

Virginia Coalition is ABSOLUTELY the best band you’re not listening to. Unless you’re not listening to U2. There aren’t people that don’t listen to U2, are there?

9. Glenn Clark’s Christmas Party (Saturday 8pm undisclosed location in Monkton); “Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows” & “Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol out in theaters (Friday); Christian Finnegan (Thursday-Sunday DC Improv)

This is how last year’s Christmas party ended…

That’s my girlfriend cleaning up vomit. The vomit happened to be on the ceiling. It is what it is.

Oh…and last year’s party also involved the following….


Ours were of course much manlier than this, but you get the point. This is not to be missed…like…say…ever.
