• Old School WWF Tag Team Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Tag Team Legend Demolition Smash (Real name: Barry Darsow) celebrates his 59th birthday today.
Between 1987 & 1991, Smash teamed up with Ax as Demolition and together they hold the record for the longest reign (478 days) as WWF/E World Tag Team Champions, a record that can never be broken, as those Championships were retired in 2010.
After the Demolition gimmick, Darsow became known as Repo Man in 1991, a character he portrayed till he left the WWF in march 1993.
During his later career in Ted Turner’s WCW, he was known as Blacktop Bully and later as “Mr. Hole-In-One” Barry Darsow.
In 2007, Ax & Smash reunited and from that point forward continued to wrestle as Demolition all over the independent scene, before they both retired in 2017.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SMASH!
• 10 Noteworthy Things From WWE Super Show-Down
WWE Super Show-Down turned out to be the best WWE PPV of 2018, mainly because of the lively crowd throughout the show and the ‘Last Time Ever’ match between The Undertaker & Triple H.
Triple H defeated The Undertaker after multiple interferences by WWE Hall of Famer Shawn Michaels. This was made possible because the match was turned into a No DQ match.
After the match, all four men (Taker, HHH, Kane, HBK) showed respect to each other and we got a moment that we’ll never forget. However, immediately after that moment was over, The Undertaker laid out both Triple H & Shawn Michaels.
