Pittsburgh Steelers vs Kansas City Chiefs: Mark Wadden picked Kansas City Chiefs, but revealed he did not want Chiefs beating Steelers only because he did not want things to end this way for Ben Roethlisberger.

Becky Lynch is currently using the ‘The Man’ tag. While she does have other nicknames, such Big Time Becks and Becky Two Belts, The Man is more commonly used.

However, The Nature Boy believes he worked extremely hard to make the catchphrase ‘To be The Man, you got to beat The Man’ what it is today. Even though he never got ownership rights to ‘The Man,’ he expected the company to pass it down to Charlotte Flair.
