One of the more unusual sporting events I've covered in my career was the pro wrestling debut of NBA player Dennis Rodman.

In July of 1997 I got a call asking if I'd be interested in covering Rodman's wrestling match in Daytona Beach.

Close to home on an open date? How could I refuse such an assignment, especially since Hulk Hogan, Randy Savage and Ric "Nature Boy" Flair would also be competing?
