If you’ve ever bought Cheap WWE Tickets from popular website TicketVistas to see the phenomenal wrestling promotion up close and personal then you’re one of the many who know that the most prestigious title in the WWE, without a doubt, is the Heavyweight Championship. Known as the “Holy Grail” in the WWE, the coveted gold fitted belt is what all the wrestlers aim to win and proudly wear it around their waist or wield it like a gold weapon hanging from the shoulder which tells of their in-ring magnificence.
Several legendary wrestlers have won the title during it’s nearly half a century history. Let’s take a look at some of the greatest wrestlers in the history of the WWE to have had bragging rights to the most sought after title in the history of sports entertainment:Batista

Laugh Out Loud With the Book of Mormon
Written Jan 15, 2013 10:39pm
Whoever thought Broadway musicals couldn’t get any funnier than the blockbuster hitUrinetownwill be majorly wronged when they see a presentation of the hilarious The Book of Mormon. The controversial creators of South Park have created a smash hit musical which Broadway desperately needed. When it comes to controversial subject matters Matt Stone and Trey Parker have been under the spotlight on more than one occasion. With The Book of Mormon the hilarious duo has once again managed to offend a lot of people, but it’s probably what they were aiming for.
I’ve been hooked onto South Park for quite some time now and I’ve always found Stone and Parkers approach to comedy extremely fresh. These guys are completely out of their mind and have developed a “bad boy” reputation for constantly choosing a controversial subject matter and The Book of Mormon just confirms that.
After hearing my friends constantly rant about how brilliant this particular musical was I finally decided to go see it. Fortunately popular website TicketVistas still had The Book of Mormon Tickets available for a bargain. With a pair of The Book of Mormon broadway and a friend accompanying me, my next stop was the luxurious Gershwin Theater in New York to see for myself what all the fuss was about.
I’m not really religious but I don’t believe in hurting other people by dissing their faith. Stone and Parker, on the other hand, thrive on that. As much as I hate saying this The Book of Mormon, despite its highly offensive sacrilegious content, is super funny. Its LFMAO funny. The creators have outdone all their previous work with this one. This musical is home to an outrageous storyline, over-the-top choreography and over use of the F and C word.
Words don’t even do justice to how hilarious The Book of Mormon really is. You’ve gotta see it to believe it. No wonder my friends couldn’t stop talking about this. The cast and crew work as a well-oiled machine and make the audience laugh with their brilliant acting and chorus work. Despite its constant ridiculing of the Mormon Church over their stance on homosexuality, the musical is careful to exclude practicing Mormons themselves and ironically, in a musical laced with profanities, have been depicted as kind individuals.
Central to the story is a handsome and popular Mormon from Utah by the name of Elder Kevin Price. Much to his disappointment Elder Price along with his socially challenged friend Elder Arnold Cunningham is sent on a mission to Uganda in spite of his constant praying to be transferred to his favorite city of Orlando. The Mormon Church, after failing to achieve a single baptism, aims to turn things around by sending Elder Price on a mission to a poverty stricken town of Uganda. To make matters worse the town is ruled by a tyrant warlord who likes to rape virgin girls for pleasure. What follows from there is a brilliant Broadway production that will leave you wanting more. I recommend checking this one out. It’s well worth the money IF you’re not sensitive about religious matters.
