    As a kid growing up in the 80s and 90s during the professional wrestling boom, I was a huge fan. However, my favorite part of pro wrestling wasn’t particularly the matches, the promos, or the hellacious chair shots to the back of an unsuspecting wrestler.  I loved the intros! Every time I hear the guitar intro of “I am a Real American,” I still get chills.

    With a small cigar, there’s really not much to say. So I’ll keep it short and sweet. Hoyo de Monterrey Excalibur Cigarillos are my favorite small cigar. In between my normal rotation, or when time demands something quick, these are my go-to.  First, they’re all tobacco....no homogenized wrappers or even, God forbid, paper like some of the other stuff out there.
