Two years ago, Kyle MacLachlan, the star of Twin Peaks, called investigative journalist Joshua Davis with a strange story. Kyle had heard a rumor that Pablo Escobar did a deal in the early 1980s with a remote, coastal Southern town of 300 people. In exchange for vast wealth and limitless cocaine, Escobar would be allowed to land planes and ships in the area. Over the last 24 months, Josh and Kyle investigated the rumor, journeying to Varnamtown to knock on doors and find out what really happens when a firehose of money and cocaine is turned on a small, tight knit community.

Shane "Hurricane" Helms has plenty to say about being a heel, a babyface, and a tweener (and he's talking to you, Darth Vader).

Rip Rogers has a hell of a twitter account (@Hustler2754) filled with all sorts of great advice and observations about the pro-wrestling biz!
