Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer typically keeps a WWE championship belt on display in a meeting room at City Hall. And no wonder – the professional wrestling company has meant a lot to the city financially. The WWE’s signature event, WrestleMania, added $181.5 million in economic impact to Central Florida during six days of festivities last spring, according to the results of an independent study released today by WWE and the mayor’s office. “The number actually exceeded our expectations,” Dyer said.
A report Monday night that UFC’s upcoming Fight Night in Orlando is being moved to another city is false, a Los Angeles Times reporter clarified today. Lance Pugmire had reported in the Times Wednesday night that UFC President Dana White was moving the Feb. 24 Amway Center card to England to give the best spotlight to a main event between British rising star Darren Till and Stephen “Wonderboy” Thompson.
Dalton Castle grew up with a love for sports, theater and glam rock. Is it any wonder he became a professional wrestler? If you have seen Castle in Ring of Honor, you know he’s not just wrestling matches, he’s performing. His ring entrances have often featured a pair of masked, shirtless men with peacock feathers (“The Boys”) who serve as human furniture and ringside distractions. But once the bell rings, Castle has shown steady improvement as a wrestler as well.
@ToddMartinMMA GREAT piece, Todd. Why do you think he is drawing more genuine heat than Chael or Conor when they go after ethnicity/race/etc.? Just because fans realize they're cutting promos and don't see yet that Colby is doing the same?
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
