Tuesday Ten is a quick, 10-minute chat with leaders & up-and-comers in the world of sports in: media/broadcasting, business/marketing, social media & more. On Tuesday, July 22, it was umm…a…uhh…groundbreaking (?)…episode for CadChica Sports.
When you need help in a pinch, you call on your friends, right? Well, that’s what I did when I found myself needing a guest for this episode of Tuesday Ten. My previously scheduled guest, Mike Freeman from Bleacher Report, had to reschedule due to other work-related engagements. He’ll join me on July 29th instead. But, I needed a guest.
That’s right. I called upon three of my friends to help me out. And, since they willingly agreed, I agreed to discuss a subject near and dear to their hearts: WWE! Tariq Ahmad, Derrick Docket and Jimmy Sanderson know their wrestling. And, they (sort of) taught be few things about the “sport”. There may have been a heel turn or two. Or, someone may have been declared a jobber. Whatever it was, it was an episode not to be missed.
