Latest Journey Blog…


– Dr.Mike Lano

 

Sorry it’s taken awhile to update what is supposed to be a “journey.”  Well, it ain’t no bloody cruise as Blassie once said during a classic Honolulu promo.  Forget about me-how about Holly Holm losing last night and that bleeding gash in the process on the side of her head. Yowza.  I don’t get why she and Meisha lost the belt in their first title defense.  Makes one appreciate what Ronda Rousey continually did-what, 5 or more title defenses?   Most speculate she’ll only fight once, maybe twice more now that she’s a major Hollywood star and pop culture icon.  Hope she does more than that.

Hogan coverage on both ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS’s This Morning pointing finger at Peter Thiel (sleeze v sleeze?)

– Dr. Mike Lano

 

And at the exact same time, or 32 minutes into BOTH morning news shows for the 3rd straight day, GMA having their in-house legal analyzing it. Both major networks kind of implied there’s something wrong with big money getting involved, putting money into revenge cases.  They repeatedly brought up in ’07, Gawker allegedly outting Thiel.  Whether that’s ethical (retaliatory) against a “news organization” in the hopes of bringing it down.

My Breakfast with Blassie. Nope.  Er, uh My Journey Battle with Newly-Discovered Cancer

By Michael Lano, DDS

 

I feel most everyone I’ve known in the biz from the boys, office staff of my Los Angeles wrestling office territory home base shooting for Mike Lebell’s program launching from there to shooting for every global newstand wrestling and boxing magazine, fans, etc. are my extended family.   Some of you know I’ve battled and thankfully been in remission from Multiple Sclerosis for years since Mayo Hospital in Minnesota first nailed my diagnosis.  Although M.S. isn’t supposed to be “familial” or “genetic,” it appears to run in my family as my great uncle had it, as did my mom. Both were quickly wheelchair-bound which I’ve thankfully not had to deal with.  In fact, most can’t tell there’s anything “wrong” with me other than I’m a goof.

 

That all changed after a freak gym accident this past Tuesday morning at 7:25 am when I was doing my last exercise thing before taking off.

Dear Leader (that could be Vince) Part Deuce


– Dr. Mike Lano

 

After all this time and the great talk of a Diva, cough, now we’re not allowed to say that word anymore either?  Chalk that up as a positive and TNA aka WWE-Lite should soon be copying, er following suit in KO’ing their own word Knockout from its own lexicon).  Wow, Ms. Yim does sound like a tough something or other with a decent promo last night v Maria the K.

P.R. Hungry “Manager” Wants To Donate A Brain (thank goodness it’s not his)


Article & photo by Dr. Mike Lano


Joanie was a sweet person with a good heart.  She’d admitted to me by phone and in person that she had made a lot of bad choices since she left WWF/E and many of them were letting in people who claimed they’d help promote her, but who ended up using her.  She said she really hated getting taken advantage of, but that her nature was to be trusting first.  I’d tell her to “do some due-diligence” on anyone coming into her life that she didn’t already fully know.
