I have been in a jag of watching old Johnny Carson clips on youtube and I caught one from 82-83 pre-champion Hulk Hogan, but post Rocky. He was supposed to be a heel but people were screaming for him. For better or worse that is what heat was. And Carson seemed awed.

When is the last time a wrestler awed a mainstream performer like that? I recall some visits to Regis and Kelly. Has that happened lately? does Wrestlemania still get the guys a slot on the Late Show or the Tonight show or Kimmel?

I know Cena was on Fallon a couple of weeks ago, which may not count since he's not active, but I believe he would also pop up on most of the talk shows when he was active, even outside of Mania season.

I think fore sure The Rock and Cena did that back in the day when they were still in the ring and today (I am a big fan of all Cena does, I must admit). But I haven't see Reigns or anyone like him on a mainstream show as a guest for while. I guess wrestling has really faded out of the mainstream even more than I thought.

It sure has for me. I don't know many of those people any more.

Sasha Banks, Alexa Bliss and Natalya do those NBC "The More You Know" commercials.

But Test is 6'7, 275! He's a hoss, by gawd! Just be glad that at least Torrie and Stacy are fighting over Test instead of, oh, let's say Vince McMahon.
