Jim Ross suggested during a recent episode of The Ross Report that WWE should book Brock Lesnar vs. Batista at WrestleMania 32.

Below is what he had to say:

“Hey, I got an idea for you…what about Batista, the heel, coming back and taking on Brock Lesnar, the babyface, at WrestleMania in April in Dallas?” Ross added, “I could live with that main event… red hot Batista coming back and urinating all over the fans and being a big star and being very arrogant and full of himself and being a bad ass, believing his clippings and he wants to take on the biggest dog in the yard. I don’t dislike that match.”

Professional wrestling legend and former American Wrestling Association World Heavyweight Champion Nick Bockwinkel has passed away at the age of 80.

Longtime wrestling fans remember Bockwinkel as being one of the biggest stars in all of wrestling in the 1970’s and 80’s. Along with the late great Verne Gagne, Bockwinkel was one of the top stars of the American Wrestling Association and was arguably the greatest AWA World Heavyweight Champion of all time, as well as one of the greatest World Champions in all of wrestling history.

Bockwinkel was inducted into the Professional Wrestling Hall of Fame & Museum in New York in 2003, and was also inducted into World Wrestling Entertainment’s Hall of Fame in 2007. He served as the President of the Cauliflower Alley Club (CAC) organization for a number of years before stepping down in 2014 due to health issues. The CAC is a professional wrestling fraternal organization that hosts yearly conventions and honors retired wrestlers with awards.

The CAC reported early Sunday, November 15, 2015, that Nick Bockwinkel had passed away on Saturday night at roughly 8:40 PM.

Highly passionate MMA Journalist, and I've followed the sport ever since my favorite fighter, Vitor Belfort won the heavyweight tournament at UFC 12. After that I've tried to go to every local MMA event around the Gulf Coast and surrounding areas and decided to make it a point to have a career in some aspect in the fighting sport other than fighting in general (didn't want to ruin my face). I'm currently enrolled at Southeastern Louisiana University working towards a degree in Communication. I cover MMA, Boxing and Football for The Daily Star newspaper in my hometown of Hammond, Louisiana, in addition to working as a promotional writer for a local Boxing promotion known as BoxnCar and I cover boxing for 8countnews.com however SciFighting.com is my home. My main goal is to bring more publicity to MMA in my area and to the sport as a whole as all of us involved with the sport are merely scratching the surface and laying the foundation of what mixed martial arts competition will be further down the road.
