The fact that an indie dude made the front cover of the Daily News is huge in its own right. Wrestling rarely gets put anywhere but in the entertainment or even sports section of the paper. Even WWE has had to struggle to get coverage in the rag. The last time a wrestler appeared on the front page was when Owen Hart died, so this Gage story is a pretty big deal, even for a dying medium such as newsprint.
Gage has also discovered Twitter. It's not exactly safe for life, but it's good for some unintentionally funny bluntness. Some tweets make me cringe, but others are downright awesome in how deadpan they are. This one's probably my favorite:
