At a time when it's difficult to draw the line between kayfabe and reality, Jeb Lund (Rolling Stone, The Guardian, MSNBC) is here to set us straight on Week One of the tabloid trial of the century: Hulk Hogan vs. Gawker -- its journalistic implications, and its undeniable comedy. Meanwhile, reality keeps interfering with Dana White's grand designs for UFC 200, and the sincerity of the Canucks' mental health initiatives is called into question. PLUS: RGS gets sponsored! The return of the Taffer Tracker! And the birth and death of the infamous "illegal pie" bit.
