About

My name is Mike Chiari and I'm a featured columnist for Bleacher Report's Breaking News Team. I'm a 25-year-old graduate of Buffalo State College from Buffalo, NY, and I've been part of BR's BNT since 2011.

I specialize in wrestling and hockey, although I have written about essentially every sport imaginable during my time at Bleacher Report.

I have also served as co-host of wrestling podcast Ring Rust Radio since 2012. I have had the honor of interviewing many of the biggest names in wrestling as part of RRR, including "Stone Cold" Steve Austin, Chris Jericho, Kurt Angle, Bruno Sammartino, Jim Ross, Paul Heyman and many more.

    Just an FYI, it only costs about $300 a pop (plus attorney time) to file a trademark application, so it doesn't really suggest "confidence" on the part of the Raiders with respect to a potential move to LV. Even if the Raiders top brass thought their chances of being allowed to move to LV were extremely slim, it would still be prudent to file TM applications with the PTO.

    Mike, What is the "anti-LGBT" law? I read the law as a pro-female provision that will prevent women from being forced to share restrooms and showers with people that have male genitalia. Why do my wife and daughters have to be punished and discriminated against?

    Mike, Great article and no doubt a different ascent for DWade as a player. Knowing how close he is to LBJ this is not a real stunner or even something that should be a mark against him. This #3 is just coming home to finish his journey and the people in ChiTown must love it. Roots!

    Why are you bringing up old ass Peyton allegations that were already brought up again on this site last year. Quit doing that to get clicks as it's sad. We already heard these allegations before and if true, it happened when the dude was in college. You hear me! College so that was about 20 years ago so how is his image tarnished? I'm sure everyone has things they did 10 or 20 years ago that they regret but that doesn't make them who they are now. Stupid article rehashed for no real reason. How about writing some real news stories..

    Why are you trying to make an issue about LeBron and the Tami Rice story? It is not a sports story. How is her opinion on LeBron's "silence" breaking news in any way at all?

    Hi, I would like to let you know that I have created a petition to remove Greg Hardy from the NFL, and it has over 39,000 signatures. I remember reading an article about a petition created to remove Vick from the Steelers, and it got attention for only 15,000 signatures. I read about it on this site. The link for my petition is https://www.change.org/p/commissioner-goodell-and-jerry-jones-get-greg-hardy-out-of-the-nfl . Thanks.
