oh yeah and crap like this, always refer to the wrestler by the first name as if you just had dinner with them (ALA Ahmad Rashad and his stupid..."I was having dinner with Micheal ...................).

This, exactly. "Tony" no less.

Rocca's been dead since 1977.  The familiarity with which CM addresses him is hilarious.  Not sure exactly how old CM is (50s I suspect) but I doubt he was having drinks and shooting the shit with Rocca in the early '70s.  I also love the extra douchy touch of saying "The Great Unreal Thing".  WTF does that even mean?  It's professional wrestling, what "Great Real Thing" was Thesz doing with anyone else?  Like rolling around on the mat with Everett Marshall was any more real.
