Remember the movie Batman and Robin? Yeah, it was pretty terrible, I agree. But do you remember Bane from that film? The guy that played the role before Tom Hardy? That was Jeep Swenson. And if you watched WCW in the mid-90s, you may recognize him as The Final Solution, one of the 10,000 or so men that were out to end Hulkamania forever! Or maybe you dont remember him as The Final Solution, because he was soon changed to The Ultimate Solution. Why the sudden change? Because someone in WCW didnt bother to read up on what The Final Solution was. Unfortunately, that was the name of Hitlers plan to rid the world of Jewish people through genocide. Yikes. Now, I know the internet wasnt very widespread in 1996, but surely someone could have used an encyclopedia to realize that naming Jeep The Final Solution was a really, really bad idea. But this was WCW, and taking any extra effort to not create embarrassing and wildly offensive content just wasnt their style.

As Rust Cohle from True Detective said "Life's barely long enough to get good at one thing. So be careful what you're good at."
Sadly, I can't solve a murder like Rust...or change a tire, or even tie a tie. But I do know all the lyrics to Hulk Hogan's "Real American" theme song and can easily name every Natural Born Thriller from the dying days of WCW. I was once ranked 21st in the United States in Tetris...on the Playstation 3 version...for about a week.
