As many fans know, The Baltimore Arena is truly a hotbed of Professional Wrestling and was even a battle ground state between the NWA and WWF in the 1980s and later the WCW and WWF in the 1990s. My own WrestleRides with Mike video about the Crockett Cup in Baltimore is certainly a favorite.

More about the history of The Baltimore Arena here:

However, most importantly, by stepping into this position as The Foreign Object host , I am honoring my good friend, and paisan, who recently passed away , Brian Danovich and his show Wrestling With Passion. Brian had established himself and Wrestling With Passion over the last several months  and had me on his show as a guest several times. Ironically, a few of our shows together were tributes to recently deceased wrestlers like Leon White aka Big Van Vader.

Just five days before Brian passed away, Brian and I did a tribute show to three wrestlers who all passed away on the very same day; Brian Christopher, Nikolai Volkoff and Brickhouse Brown. These passings were all troubling to “Dano” ; and it so sad that he joined these gentlemen in the “next territory”, so to speak, just a few days later.

For those unfamiliar with Brian Danovich, he was on Tough Enough’s Million Dollar Challenge back in 2004, and was signed to a developmental deal by WWE. Unfortunately, nagging injuries hampered his career.

Brian will always be remembered for his Wrestling with Passion. 

Brian would have really loved attending shows at The Baltimore Arena. Here is an article about The Top Moments in Professional Wrestling in The Baltimore Arena by Kevin Eck.
