Wrestling as a sport has always vowed entertainment and excitement to its fans. It has been decades that this form of entertainment has kept masses interested in the action they deliver match after match. It is not easy to be a wrestler as it requires a lot of practice and patience to make a right move at the right time. However, despite the demand and requirement of the sport, wrestlers are putting in their best efforts to win the championships. It is a dream of every wrestler to win everything which is on offer in the WWE but seldom this come true. A championship win can make an unknown name a popular one across the globe and this is what wrestlers strive for in their professional careers. In the wrestling world tag team division, the mid card and the main event are the three categories and there are few wrestlers who have won atleast a title in each category. Here is the list of six such WWE heroes.

Daniel Bryan

Bryan Lloyd Danielson is an American retired professional wrestler best known for his tenure in WWE under the ring name Daniel Bryan. In 2016, at age 34, Danielson retired from professional wrestling due to medical issues (including seizures) arising from multiple concussions and a brain lesion. He was a treat to watch in his tenure as a wrestler in WWE. He started his first stint with the WWE in 2000-2001 then known as the WWF but he left the company to wrestle for various companies internationally using both his real name and the ring name (and later nickname) “American Dragon. However, he joined back in 2009 and never looked back. In WWE, Bryan held the WWE World Heavyweight Championship three times and the World Heavyweight Championship once, in addition to being a one-time United States Champion, a one-time Intercontinental Champion, and a one-time WWE Tag Team Champion as part of Team Hell No (with Kan

Eddie Guerrero

He is regarded as one of the greatest professional wrestlers of all time. The fellow competitors have always held him in high regards and at the time of his death, he was labeled as the toughest competitor of all time. The veterans Kurt Angle and William Regal once described him as the best wrestler in the business with Angle adding Guerrero might have even been the best ever. Guerrero won 23 titles during his career, including 16 in WWE. The best part about him was his never say die attitude. It was very difficult to go pass him as his alertness was his main weapon which helped him in flooring his opponents. Eddie Guerrero was always dubbed as villain in the ring because of his activities but was king at heart. The WWE championship title was the one which eluded him for long but he completed the task when he defeated WWE Champion Brock Lesnar in 2004 and continued as a champion till 2005. With his death in 2005, the wrestling world lost one of the biggest stars.

Edge

He is a Canadian actor and retired professional wrestler. Edge is famous for his tenure in the WWE, where he performed under the ring name Edge. He debuted in 1992 and continued till 2011. Edge won 31 championships in WWE overall, including 11 world championships (the WWE Championship four times and the World Heavyweight Championship a record seven times), five Intercontinental Championships, one United States Championship, and 14 world tag team championships (a record 12 World Tag Team Championships and two WWE Tag Team Championships). He won the 2001 King of the Ring tournament, was the first Money in the Bank ladder match winner in 2005, and won the Royal Rumble match in 2010, making him the first wrestler in history to achieve all three of those accomplishments. It was not easy to beat him as he was smart enough to apply his trademark moves within a blink of an eye on his rival. Edge will always be held in high regards by the fans.

Kurt Angle

Kurt Angle is the most decorated wrestler in the history of WWE. After graduating college, Angle won a gold medal in freestyle wrestling at the 1995 World Wrestling Championships. He then won a freestyle wrestling gold medal at the 1996 Summer Olympics, which he thinks is the most important accomplishment of his career till date. During his tenure in WWE, he picked up various unnecessary fights with top level wrestlers and this made him a hating prospect in the eyes of fans. However, no matter, what masses thought about him, he never let his opponents breathe easy in the ring and more often came out as winner in the end. Throughout his tenure in the WWF/E, Angle was a six-time world champion (four-time WWF/E Champion, one-time World Heavyweight Champion, and one-time WCW Champion), a one-time United States Champion, one-time Intercontinental Champion, one-time European Champion and one-time WWE Tag Team Champion.

A post shared by Krunal Pandya (@krunalpandya_official) on

Tell him to become a fast-bowling all-rounder - KL Rahul

While people showered blessings on the little one, India batsman KL Rahul predicted the career profession of the junior Hardik Pandya.

He suggested Krunal to make the baby boy a fast-bowling all-rounder in future.

“Please tell him to become a fast-bowling all-rounder,” Rahul commented on the post.

KL Rahul is currently gearing up for the 13th edition of the Indian Premier League, which is scheduled to take place from September 19 in the UAE. While Rahul will lead Kings XI Punjab franchise, Pandya brothers will be back in action for the defending champions Mumbai Indians.

Notably, all the matches of IPL 2020 will be played across three cities - Sharjah, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.

Balancing FTP, T20s versus World Cup scheduling

Sreelata S Yellamrazu Updated: 7 August, 2020, 4:29 PM IST

As the preparations for the Indian Premier League (IPL) gathers momentum and the world gears up for the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), the question is whether the focus should be on how to balance the wheel versus where the next year's World Cup should be held.

There is little doubt that there are as many World Cups in cricket as there are Twenty20 leagues currently underway in the game. Even as the discussion rakes up once more about who - the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) or Cricket Australia (CA) - will host next year's ICC Twenty20 World Cup, there is a need for the International Cricket Council (ICC) to address the current situation where too few teams have their plans etched out following the pandemic break.

England is said to be still in a dismal situation despite the fact that the West Indies have successfully completed their your and Pakistan are playing the first Test. Their limited-overs series with Australia is in the dock as the Australian cricketers are contemplating how to play in England and then fly to the UAE for the IPL.

The hurdles for the IPL abound in the fact that players and teams are expected to arrive a month in advance to the scheduled September schedule to meet the Coronavirus pandemic measures but also, for franchisees to have the opportunity to work with their teams and devise a conditioning camp to get them out of the rust/rest period and towards winning ways.

South Africa are battling internal wranglings as they are fighting broader issues of corruption and uncertainty of scheduling. It is throwing their fragile, recently laid down game plan in turmoil, and given the player turnover, they will be concerned, despite the innovative 3T cricket distraction, for their jitters to calm down with an international series.

The pandemic break and the rescheduling after has meant that more than one team besides South Africa are looking at an immediate bleak future.

Australia are going all out to keep their date with the schedule of India's tour. But not many teams have India and thereby, a lucrative proposition in the offing. Calls for England to reciprocate the tour for the West Indies grows as players have been asked to undergo a pay cut despite the tour of England.

At a time when it is important that the ICC take cognizance of this FTP that is in immediate need of handling, it seems inane that after wasting more than three months in the offing while Cricket Australia refused to host the world cup this year, that they would waste more time finalizing whether CA and the BCCI would swap hosting rights for a year that is still far away when there are too many immediate concerns that need the attention of the governing body in consultation with its permanent board members on the collective issue regarding the state of the game.

MS Dhoni will score a lot of runs in Indian Premier League - Former Player

Abhishek Singh Updated: 7 August, 2020, 3:59 PM IST

With the Indian Premier League (IPL) about to start soon, all the fans of Mahendra Singh Dhoni would finally be able to watch him play. These fans have been expecting the ‘Thala’ to play international cricket and make a comeback in Team India.

However, cricketer-turned commentator, Aakash Chopra believes that Dhoni would not be bothered about team India selection as he has risen above that. Aakash feels that 39-year-old MSD’s only focus would be to get Chennai into the finals.

"For Dhoni, it really doesn’t matter whether he is selected or not. I believe as a cricketer and as a batsman, he would just look to score runs and guide his team to victory. The maturity he has achieved won’t let me worry him about the selection and his only focus would be to win the games for Chennai Super Kings (CSK),” Aakash said in a video posted on his YouTube channel.

Saying that CSK is more or less built around MSD, therefore the success of Ranchi boy would also be reflected in his team’s success, Chopra tried to broaden the spectrum of Dhoni’s impact.

"CSK’s success depends upon MSD a lot. If he is in god form, chances are that CSK would do well because then he would be involved a lot in the game,” Chopra added.

Dhoni will score runs even after not playing competitive cricket for a long time - Chopra

Further the Delhi born commentator also said that Dhoni, even after not being part of any competitive match from July last year, would score good runs.

"Just take a thorough look at his career and you would realize that he gives very little to no damn about anything going on in the surroundings that might affect him. So I believe that even when he has not played cricket for quite some time, he is going to score runs and succeed this season,” 42-year-old Chopra concluded.

Pakistani players are jealous of Indians - Former Indian cricketer

Abhishek Singh Updated: 7 August, 2020, 3:46 PM IST

While Indo-Pak relations have been sour politically over the years, it is in sports and among sportsmen, especially cricketers that we have some amount of camaraderie. However, it seems that Pak cricketers accusing BCCI of postponing the T20 World Cup didn’t go down well with former India cricketer Madan Lal.

Reacting to the comments of former Pak cricketers, Madan Lal, member of BCCI’s Cricket Advisory Committee (CAC) said that the cricketers from our neighboring country are jealous of us.

“Most of the Pak cricketers hardly think before opening their mouth. Claiming that India used muscle and money to postpone the World Cup is utter nonsense. Basically they are jealous of our success,” Madan Lal was quoted as saying on Sports Tak.

“The reason why the World Cup was postponed was the coronavirus. It was the joint decision of Cricket Australia and the International Cricket Council because a league and a world cup are totally different things. You would always want a crowd and sponsors to make the World Cup successful. So in that aspect postponing it was a rather smart decision,” Lal added.

IPL was always going to happen - Madan Lal

 

The 69-year-old former World Cup winner also defended BCCI saying that the plan for IPL was already made and it has been very well executed by the board.

“There was no question of IPL not happening, it was always going to take place. The window of September-October was pre-decided. So basically the board had already planned the IPL accordingly,” Lal said.

IPL’s leading hat-trick taker still hoping to play for India, says he is not dependent on league

Garima Kotroo Updated: 7 August, 2020, 3:44 PM IST

The Indian veteran spinner Amit Mishra is one of the best performers in the IPL. Playing for Delhi Capitals, the 37-year-old leg-spinner has never failed to meet the expectations of his fans and teammates. He is even holding the record of most hat-tricks in the history of the tournament. But as far as international cricket is concerned, he hasn’t donned the Indian jersey for the last three years. Mishra made his last appearance for the Men in Blue in the 2017 T20I series against England.

However, the veteran spinner didn’t lose all his hopes to play for his country yet again. During his recent interview, when Mishra was asked if he is still hoping to make a comeback in the national squad, he replied that he is always ready to play for the Indian team.

“Of course, I do! That is why I am still playing. I am not someone who will keep playing just for IPL. I should always be ready and prepared when a call from the Indian team comes. That is the belief I always have,” Mishra told cricket.com.

Self-motivation is very important – Amit Mishra

Furthermore, Mishra also spoke about his future plans. He admitted that the thought of retirement has crossed his mind but the leggie feels that he still has some cricket left in him.

“Age should not be a criterion to judge your performance. One should always see whether a player is fit or not.”

“I have always tried to stay away from negative thoughts. Self-motivation is very important. We all are surrounded by pessimism when we don't see much success. If we try to work harder, negativity generally goes away,” Mishra added
