Ian Auzenne

Hey, all!  I'm Ian Auzenne, the weekend guy.  I'm a graduate of Beau Chêne High School and Princeton University.  In addition to playing Acadiana's best country, I also work in local TV, dabble in sports broadcasting, officiate high school and recreational volleyball and softball.  When I'm not working, I (attempt to) play tennis and bowl.  I enjoy all types of music and love discovering new sounds.  It's a pleasure having you with me every weekend, and I hope you keep tuning in.

Top 10 Pro Wrestlers That Never Won a World Title

Professional wrestling is a funny business.  Many talented and popular wrestlers never get the opportunity to carry a federation's banner as a world heavyweight champion.  As a result, many hall-of-famers--current and future--miss out on holding the most prized possession in all of the game, a big gold belt that signifies he is, as Ric Flair would put it, "the man" in his company.  So in honor of WWE Monday Night Raw coming to the Cajundome next week, I present to you my list of the top 10 pro wrestlers that never won a world heavyweight championship.

If you have never seen the movie, I urge you to watch it and then return to read this passage.

The Pro Wrestling of Yesteryear

Acadiana is the home to many a pro wrestling fan, especially those that consider themselves fans of the "old school."  They long for the days when part of the Saturday routine was spent watching Ric Flair, Ted DiBiase, Junkyard Dog, or Ernie Ladd on television.  With the WWE coming to town in just a few days, let's take this opportunity to revisit wrestling's past.
