As you can see my name is Daine Pavloski. I grew up watching SportsCenter every morning as I enjoyed my Cinnamon Toast Crunch before school. I continued to love sports through my younger years, watching my dad coach high school basketball and watching my older brother play sports.
When I was finally of age I started playing football, basketball, and baseball at Rudyard High School in the Eastern Upper Peninsula (The UP) so I am indeed a Yooper born and raised.
After a few ankle injuries and all possibility of a future of playing sports was gone I decided to do the next best thing; sports journalism. I began writing a sports column for during my summers at home in the UP and started Off The Bench, a sports talk show on campus at Olivet College. From there I eventually became the sports director at WOCR 89-1 FM and act as the play-by-play announcer for Olivet College athletics while taking every opportunity I could to talk about, write about, or read about sports with anyone that would listen.

    Hi mate. Just need you to do me a favor here. When WWE described Jeff Hardy as “one of the most popular WWE Champions in history” in their bio of him on his Alumni page, did they mean he was one of the most popular guys when he WWE Champion, or just one of the most popular guys overall? And what does ‘WWE Champions’ mean here; a WWE Champion (like John Cena is now) or any Champion in WWE (i.e IC or US or tag-team). Thanks in advance, Daine!

    Your article, "7 Independent Stars Who Need a Shot in WWE" was one of the best things written on this site in some time. You are now my new favorite writer and I am a middle-aged Daine Pavloski fanboy. What I wonder, however, is given that they are so good in the indies, does it really make sense to elevate them and risk them losing what makes them good? Hell, if I were rich, I'd build another wrestling promotion just around the Briscoes Chicken Farm (easily a better show than Smackdown), but would the WWE just let these superstars languish? Can they get over like CM Punk did? Follow-up article please.

    That's awesome! I actually know 2 guys on the soccer team and 1 who WAS (I believe) on the football team. He may not be there anymore.

    Soccer - Camden Iwasko and Matt Garza

    Football - T.J. Price.

    Any names ring a bell?
