MICHAEL COLE’S LATEST BLOG
Just wanted to update everyone on a few exciting things that are going on. It’s been a great start to 2013 and way too much to tweet.
John Layfield and Michael Cole Radio Show: The show is really taking off. We are consistently one of the top 5 shows on Webtalkradio.Net, one of the largest distributors of podcasts in the world! We want to thank all of you for downloading each and every week and if you haven’t yet we are hoping you sample us soon. John and I talk about a wide variety of issues including politics, entertainment, hard news, sports and anything else that grabs our attention. You may not agree with our views, but we are passionate about them and hope they open up the conversation to a great debate.
BIG NEWS…next Saturday May 18th John and I will record our radio show “live” at Jack Patrick’s Bar 1000 Olive Street in St. Louis, the night before Extreme Rules Pay per View in the same city. We encourage you to attend and join in the fun. We will be giving away four tickets to the pay per view, a JR’s BBQ prize pack and many other great prizes. Our “live” show in London last month was such a huge success that we plan on doing this the night before every pay per view. In June we will be in the fifty/50 bar and restaurant in Chicago.
JBL and COLE SHOW: You can catch this every Friday right here on Layfield Report. We describe it as our 5-minute variety show. We just crowned our SUPERStar Search winner (our first ever “talent show”). Congratulations to Daniel Bryan and big props to Machine Jesse Green of American Chainsaw on Nat Geo who carved the trophy. This show has become so popular it garners over 100,000 views each week. Next week our guest is Ohio State Football coach Urban Meyer!
JBL and COLE “World Tour”: You can normally catch a new episode each Wednesday here at Layfield Report. We like to give you a taste of all the cool places we visit. We have shot episodes in London, in Columbus with the MLS Crew, at the North Carolina State Capitol in Raleigh (The capitol even tweeted us!). Next week we head to Safari sanctuary in Broken Arrow, Oklahoma. Big thanks to our wonderful and beautiful correspondent Renee Young (@reneeyoungWWE). She is with us each week.
And speaking of videos please subscribe to our You Tube channel. Not only can you see the aforementioned videos, but you can see classic videos from John and I from throughout our career.
WEIGHT LOSS CHALLENGE/MOUNTAINS AND MARLINS: As many of you know John and I embarked on a weight loss challenge a little more than 2 weeks ago. The goal, to lose 20 pounds each by June 30th, or pay a fine to charity. Great news after the first two weeks, John is down 6 pounds and I have dropped 11! But so much has happened over the past couple of weeks so even though the challenge ends on June 30th, the fitness training won’t. First on July 4th John and I will be aboard the Paradise One off of Bermuda as our team of 6 looks to win the World Championship of Marlin fishing. We need to be in shape in case we get an 800 pounder on the line.
Then in the final week of July John continues his Seven Summits as he climbs a mountain in the Alps. The fitness continues after that as I look to CLIMB MY FIRST MOUNTAIN! John and I will attempt to scale Mt Whitney, the highest summit in the contiguous United States at 14, 505 feet! The attempt comes in mid-August. Needless to say I need to be in massive shape for that trip and would like to be down 40 pounds to 185 by then.
Also please subscribe to our newsletter and download our app. By doing so you are eligible for some great prizes! And we need the support! Also a big thanks to Brian Pellagatto and Dustin Wallace for all their help!
