Coming up on April 29th & 30th, The Soldiers & Sailors Monument on Public Square will offer the annual tunnel tours underneath the monument. These tunnels serve as the foundation for the monument and will have guided tours on these two days from 9-6.
If you have never been inside the Soldiers & Sailors Monument before...GO! It's really cool inside! I've been only once (and only in the memorial room), but it's a very interesting place. Built in 1893 and dedicated July 4,1894, it honors the almost 10,000 Cuyahoga County residents who served with the Union in the Civil War. Even if you don't get in on a tunnel tour, I definitely recommend visiting the Memorial Room (which is beautiful). That part of the monument is open year-round 9-5:30. Go check it out!!
Well the biggest spectacle in Sports Entertainment is coming this weekend... It's 2 Nights of jam packed matches April 1st and 2nd! There is a taste of Cleveland as The Miz is your Mania Host. Remember these are just my thoughts and predictions there is no truth behind these guesses. Just my personal thoughts. Enjoy Mania hope there are a lot of surprises!!!
The UNDISPUTED WWE UNIVERSAL CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH:
Roman Reigns vs Cody Rhodes
I think that Cody Rhodes will keep his streak going. Eventhough Roman Reigns has held the belts forever. It has been too long for me. The fallout from The Head Of The Table losing poses more storylines and a way to give Roman a vacation if he wants/needs it. Look for The Bloodline and Paul Heyman to interfere but maybe a former champ comes back to help out that would be a *pebble* in Roman's Plans...
SMACKDOWN WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH:
Charlotte Flair vs Rhea Ripley
This one I hate going against Charlotte but she has to admit Rhea is carrying a lot of matches not only in the Women's Division but also the Men's Division. I think Rhea will end up dropping that ZERO Dom and pick up a belt that she deserves at Mania!
RAW WOMEN'S CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH:
Bianca Belair vs Asuka
Bianca is on another level. Asuka is basically the only match for her since Becky has a tag title. Asuka may pull out a disqualification or a count out. If there is a finish to this match without interference then Bianca retains the belt.
WORST MATCH ON THE CARD:
Brock Lesnar vs Omos
I will say Brock wins even though MVP and a possible semi-reformed Hurt Business gets involved.
UNITED STATES CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH:
Austin Theory vs John Cena
Everyother day I would John Cena wins hands down. But I don't see him coming back to defend so much. I see Austin Theory retaining somehow and if Cena wins then he will lose the gold on Raw the following night.
POSSIBLE BEST MATCH OF MANIA:
Logan Paul vs Seth Rollins
Rollins has gotten so many wrestlers over in the past year or so... Must say Logan Paul pulling a full-time wrestling schedule is interesting. I think Logan Paul wins and keeps building his persona. I don't think he knocks Rollins out there is some underhanded tactic that makes the rivalry hang on.
6 WOMAN TAG TEAM MATCH:
Becky Lynch, Lita and Trish Stratus vs. Damage CTRL - Bayley, Dakota Kai and Iyo Sky
I see this one with a heel turn. Trish Stratus maybe going heel... or Iyo Sky might branch out on her own. The Tag Titles can't change hands so I hope Sasha Banks returns but probably won't.
HELL IN A CELL MATCH:
Edge vs Finn Balor
The rivalry is stale think Finn wins with help. I think we are in for a costume change in this one and might change the optics of the fiend. But it is still the same. I would have liked to see AJ Styles added to this match.
FATHER - SON MATCH:
Dominik Mysterio vs Rey Mysterio
Classic take your belt off and teach your boy a lesson in talking back to his mother... I hope Lela Mysterio gets after Rhea too... causing Rhea to drop Dumb or I mean Dom... I think Dom wins but it is far from clean.
WWE TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH:
The Usos vs Kevin Owens and Sami Zayn
This is the other option for Match of Mania. It basically set up the whole event. As long as Sami doesn't turn on KO or vice versa. The Usos lose the titles and grab your popcorn and sit back for the possibilities of The Bloodline or lack thereof... I only say this because Jey Uso has been put in a possibility to get a great push...
Chelsea Green & Sonya Deville vs Liv Morgan & Raquel Rodriguez vs Natalya & Shotzi vs Ronda Rousey & Shayna Baszler
They are forced upon us with no real meaning. I hope Liv & Raquel win but I think Ronda and Shayna will set up a Becky and Lita match-up for the Tag Titles in the future.
MEN'S FATAL 4-WAY TAG MATCH
Alpha Academy vs Braun Strowman & Ricochet vs The Street Profits vs Viking Raiders
I could careless as long as the Viking Raiders DO NOT WIN. I will go with The Street Profits
INTERCONTINENTAL CHAMPIONSHIP TRIPLE THREAT MATCH:
Gunther vs Drew McIntyre vs Sheamus
No matter who wins this will be the most damage done! I like Drew McIntyre to win. Although again maybe they want a (X) amount of days Champion. Seems like the new thing these days. I am rooting and thinking Drew will win.
Again these are just my thoughts in no way shape or form do I have any insight into what will really happen. If you are betting on these matches bet with your wallets... not with your heart... and by all means not with my predictions. Hope you enjoy Wrestlemania on Saturday and Sunday Nights. Thank you for checking in for Wrasslin Wednesday. I put this out the Wednesday before the Premium WWE Events.
Yesterday morning, Hailey Whitters performed her debut single "Everything She Ain't" on the TODAY Show stage! If you missed it, watch below:
The 2023-2024 Broadway season has been announced. The shows are:
- The Wiz
- Girl From North Country
- Mrs Doubtfire
- Funny Girl
- Back To The Future: The Musical
- MJ: The Musical
This is a lineup that has a couple shows that really interest me. First, I WILL be going to see Mrs Doubtfire. It is one of my all time favorite movies, and I cannot wait to see what they have done with the production of the movie. The other is MJ: The Musical. Michael Jackson was a musical genius! He wrote great music and was an amazing performer. This would be an intersting look into the making of a world tour of his as well as other events in his life around that time.
Great times at a local landmark...Playhouse Square.
So I am not a reality singing show fan. Blake deserves some respect for his lengthy run. Helping out young talent and being the winning coach so many times. Maybe time to start coming up with replacements. Neal McCoy was given a push by Blake himself. I don't know Reba is on the show this season, Dierks has helped, Kane Brown has been on it... Kelsea Ballerini sat in for Kelly before. A lot of good characters could fill-in and well they do not have to be country like Blake.
I do appreciate Blake's sense of humor and his quick wit. Like this clip... talk about a mic drop, name drop and all of it. (check out the 3:45 to 3:55 mark)

I have a BIG annoucement that I'll be posting here on WQMX.com! It's going up at the end of the week, but I'm so excited about it I just wanted to tease it now! Trust me, this announcement is going to be HUGE!!!
I was flipping channels late Saturday night and saw on the horror movie channel, they were showing all of the "Scream" movies! They were at the very end of the first one and I was disappointed. Instead of rewinding it, I went and rented it on Youtube.
After that, I figured why not watch the second and third as well? So, I got comfy on the couch with Buttercup in my lap and watched the first three "Scream" movies back - to - back - to - back. Took about a total of 6 hours, but was a lot of fun and when it's 3:00 on a Sunday morning what else am I going to do? haha!
It reminded me why I love the series so much and now I want to watch movies 4 and 5 again, and watch number 6 again too! Maybe this weekend? We will see :)
Well it's never to early to Clean Up Akron... This is our home and it should be taken care of all the time.
April is a very special month though. It is Keep Akron Beautiful's Annual "Clean Up Akron Month". Kudos to the organization and even though we should make sure our city sparkles all the time. April is the call out to all volunteers to remove litter that's added up due to winter and all the heavy wind storm's of late in the area.
If you would like to volunteer or maybe a group of friends, co-workers or just a meet up to get to know some neighbors, students on campus, or your local park. This is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and some folks that want to make sure it looks as beautiful as Akron is... and can be!!!
Here is the information if you would like to volunteer or just find out some deals... Click Here!
Starting today (Monday 03-27), I am introducing a new segment to the show - The Sports Roundup. It will be about 1 minute of some of the biggest sports scores and stories locally and nationally. I have casually been covering scores for quite some time now, and thought it was time to give sports the proper recognition it deserves.
Listen for The Sports Roundup every weekday with me at 12:50AM on WQMX!
Chris Lane is looking for a good mechanic - and maybe a new lawn mower after an accident he had. He was recently out riding his lawn mower at home and crashed it into the back of an SUV parked in his driveway!! He hit the car pretty hard, as it did lurch forward when he made contact!
Turns out, he was steering with one hand and holding several garden tools with the other. That's why they always say 2 hands on the wheel! LOL. BTW, OF COURSE there is video and it was posted to his Instagram.
