On the June 15 edition of WWE Monday Night Raw, Brock Lesnar made his return to the ring. Upon his return to the squared circle, he was named the number one contender and will face WWE World Heavyweight Champion Seth Rollins at WWE Battleground on July 19 in St. Louis, MO. Lesnar’s return was met with much fanfare and he enters right into a feud that many have eagerly anticipated since WrestleMania.

In the pre-determined, sometimes unfairly labeled “fake” sport of professional wrestling, Lesnar is as real as it gets. He is a former NCAA Division I Heavyweight wrestling champion, a former UFC Heavyweight Champion, and a four time WWE champion. He is a special entity; an act that is completely different from the likes of John Cena or anyone else currently on the WWE roster. Cena portrays a real life superhero who fights for honor and admiration against dastardly villains. Lesnar is the polar opposite. He brings a hybrid style of mixed martial arts and amateur wrestling, throwing real punches and tossing other wrestlers around with some of the most physical, painful looking suplexes since the likes of Kurt Angle. Lesnar is a monster who lives up to his nickname – “The Beast Incarnate.” He caters to the adult male fan base and the wrestling fans of old who long for the days of bloodshed and chaos that the industry used to thrive on.

2015. The year the New York Mets have been building towards over the past few seasons. The turnaround season, the year in which the patience of the team and its fans would finally pay off. The year that the young core of pitching talent would finally come together and bring the franchise to the Promised Land. 2015, the year the New York Mets make their triumphant return to the postseason.

Yet, three months into the year of destiny, the identity of the team remains a mystery. Are they the team many in the Mets organization promised would put the franchise back on the map? Or are they all bark and no bite?

The Mets could not have asked for a better start to the 2015 season. From April 12th through April 23rd, the Mets went on an eleven game win streak, tied for the longest streak in the majors this season. It took until May 8th for both Bartolo Colon and Matt Harvey, the leaders of the Mets starting rotation, to suffer their first losses of the season. At the peak of this amazing start, prior to a series against the Chicago Cubs on May 11th, the Mets were 20-11 and held a strong lead over the favorite Washington Nationals in the NL East. One month in and everything the Mets promised was delivered and then some.

Warped Tour Fashion Tips

The legendary Warped Tour continues tomorrow in California and will be making its way across the country this summer. Don't forget these simple tips to make the most of your concert experience.

1.) No chains. I know you got those punk vibes, but leave the metal at home. You’re gonna kill someone when you’re crowd surfing and get that caught on a teenager’s eyebrow ring. Feel me?

2.) Sunscreen. Do you want melanoma? I don’t care if it looks stupid for the two minutes you’re putting it on, bring the damn sunscreen and tan another day when your environment is not completely out of your control.

3.) Hair ties. Never know when you’ll need them. Not only do they function as black bracelets for your inner-goth child, but your sweaty neck will thank you when you tie those dreads up in a ponytail. You can even slide one around your beer so you know which one’s yours! Magical, I know.

Warped Tour

4.) Watch. I'm aware - no one wears a watch anymore. Chill. Wouldn’t you rather save your phone battery to snap those selfies and brag about the killer live sets you’re seeing on Facebook? That's what I thought.

5.) Sunglasses. Protect your eyes, playa! Skin cancer can occur in your eyelids, too. Crazy, right? Don't f**k around with that shiz.

6.) Hand sanitizer. Those porta-potties, though.

7.) Poncho. Have you ever been caught in a downpour at an outdoor concert? It's not pleasant, but there's nothing you can do about it, and usually there's nowhere to take shelter. You just have to embrace it. However, if you have a poncho, you can at least partially salvage your comfort.

8.) Extra socks. See #7.

9.) Sneakers. People WILL step on your feet -- hard -- if you're in the pit. Don't wear sandals unless you want your toes smashed. And for the love of god, don't wear heels. You're not impressing anyone, sorry not sorry.

10.) Draw-string backpack. You'll need a light-weight, easily accessible bag for your lighter, cell phone, keys, gum, merch, and the above items. And now, you gucci.

Don't have tickets yet? Don't worry. There are still plenty of Warped Tour tickets available at Ticket Liquidator.

MLB All Star Game

It's the middle of June, which means a lot of things in baseball. It means that the contenders are pulling away from the pretenders -- and that the pretenders will begin taking inventory and making players expendable on the trade market. Clearly, the St. Louis Cardinals, Los Angeles Dodgers, Washington Nationals, Kansas City Royals and Detroit Tigers are very good baseball teams. But that's just five teams -- and even if all five qualify for the playoffs, another five will, too.

Those five teams are very much in it, and there's a lot of teams sort of in it -- the entire AL East and AL West, the New York Mets, Pittsburgh Pirates, San Francisco Giants and a few others. But more importantly, we know that there are teams that definitely aren't in it, and will sell players. Those players could very well shape how the season plays out, and ultimately, who wins the 2015 World Series.

The Philadelphia Phillies are not winning the World Series this year. They aren't making the playoffs this year, and they probably won't make the playoffs next year. 2017 is probably the best case scenario there. Phillies general manager Ruben Amaro Jr. made a pretty big gaffe last season, when he did not trade Cliff Lee prior to the trade deadline. Now, Lee may never pitch again, and the Phillies will end up with no future assets in return for Lee and his services. That's bad!

Fish in the Dark

Jason Alexander, best known as the neurotic and stocky George Costanza on Seinfeld, is taking over for Larry David today as the lead role of his Broadway sensation, Fish in the Dark. The main character, Norman Drexel, is Larry David's alter ego - sarcastic and awkward - which Alexander has immense experience with since he played essentially the same person on Seinfeld. Fans are disappointed that the great Larry David has ended his run on stage, but let's not forget the infinite wisdom of George Costanza. If anyone can fill Larry David's shoes, it's him.

1.) "You can stuff your sorries in a sack, mister!"

2.) "These are not scraps. These are the historic remains of a once great society of hair."

3.) "I come from a long line of quitters. My father was a quitter, my grandfather was a quitter. I was raised to fail."

4.) "That's a lot of pressure – ‘make love to me.’ What, am I in the circus?"

5.) "You know what this has to do with? The man in the cape. I bet you he is mixed up in this. I don't trust men in capes."

Cry Me A River

In my other life, I write books. On my kitchen shelf, you’ll find a mug with a picture of a typewriter and the caption "Careful – you might end up in my novel." I’ve never actually sought revenge on anyone by immortalizing them in print but I understand the impulse. It’s a form of power. If someone pisses me off, I can do horrible things to them. Humiliate them, take away whatever they love most, kill them slowly and painfully, or all three.

Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately) the people most likely to make me angry enough to commit literary mayhem probably don’t read for pleasure, and those who buy my books would have no idea who I based the characters on.

You see, I’m not Taylor Swift.

Swift admits "Bad Blood" is about an unnamed female artist who attempted to sabotage one of her concert tours. In an interview with Rolling Stone, she said the situation made her uncomfortable. So, of course, she wrote a song about it, shot a video (in which Swift, a superhero, is pitted against a nemesis that looks remarkably like Katy Perry), released it as a single, ensuring that thousands of radio stations would play it tens of thousands of times to hundreds of thousands of fans, most of whom know exactly who Swift is singing about.

Country Megaticket

Concert season is officially in full swing as country artists kick off their summer tours and make their way to Xfinity Theatre. It’s that time again to figure out carpools, which lot to post up in, and most importantly, who to see live! Every year you await the release of Rascal Flatts' tour schedule and skim the dates for Hartford. Every year you end up in the same predicament: should I buy tickets to Florida Georgia Line or Brad Paisley?

And then, after you’ve decided on a couple of shows to attend, you find out that your friends are also going to Tim McGraw and convince you to go to Lady Antebellum because Hunter Hayes (HEART THROB) will also be performing. So, by the end of summer, you've attended 7 out of 8 shows listed on the Xfinity Theatre MegaTicket, and only missed Toby Keith because you couldn’t request the day off from work in time. You find yourself asking, "Why didn't I just skip out on all the heartache and buy the Country MegaTicket?!"

Luckily, it is not the end of the summer and you still have time to get your concert plans in order, so get to it! Jason Aldean will be kicking off the conglomerate of Country MegaTicket shows at the Xfinity Theatre on May 29th with Cole Swindell and Tyler Farr, and Florida Georgia Line will take the final show on the MegaTicket on September 11th, accompanied by Thomas Rhett and Frankie Ballard.
