The St. Louis Blues have announced their “theme nights” for the upcoming 2018-19 NHL season and there’s one night in particular that fans should circle in their calendar. Sandwiched in between “traditional” theme nights like Ladies Night, Hockey Fights Cancer Night, St. Louis Cardinals Night and Star Wars Night is… WWE Night!

Check it out:

For what it's worth, St. Louis has a long, storied wrestling history. Legendary wrestlers from the WWE and beyond hail from St. Louis with the most famous being Randy Orton, Classy Freddie Blassie, Jonathan "The Coach" Coachman and Harley Race. St. Louis was as fixture of the former National Wrestling Alliance, an seminal wrestling circuit that has been in operation for over 70 years. The St. Louis Wrestling Hall of Fame features legendary wrestlers like King Kong Bundy, Ric Flair, Gene Kiniski, Race, Rocky Johnson, Terry Funk, Million Dollar Man Ted DiBiase and Bobby The Brain Heenan, among others.

One thing's for sure, the Blues could use a few of these guys in the lineup this upcoming season. After parting ways with enforcer Ryan Reaves, the Blues have been sorely lacking a physical presence in their lineup. The team's penalty minutes leaders from last season (2017-18) were Chris Thorburn with 60 PIMs and Joel Edmundson with 57 PIMs... tough guys no doubt, but they can't handle a candle to Reaves, who may be the most fierce enforcer in the entire NHL. In fact, the Blues finished 25th in the entire league with just 631 penalty minutes. To put that in perspective, the rough and tumble Predators finished atop the NHL with 928 PIMs.
