• A Big Match Was Pitched For “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt For SummerSlam 2021
Bray Wyatt is no longer with WWE as he was released yesterday, and it looks like “The Fiend” gimmick has come to an end as well (unless WWE plans on bringing Wyatt back after some time, like they did with Samoa Joe).
According to pro-wrestling broadcaster Jon Alba, “The Fiend” Bray Wyatt vs. Drew McIntyre was pitched for SummerSlam 2021:
“Bray Wyatt/Drew McIntyre had at least been pitched for SummerSlam at one point. I’m not sure how far those discussions went, but it was talked about at one point.”
McIntyre is currently feuding with Jinder Mahal (his former 3MB partner) on RAW and he’ll most likely face him at SummerSlam.

• Old School WWF Tag Team Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Tag Team Legend D-Von Dudley (Real name: Devon Hughes) celebrates his 49th birthday today.
In early 1996, D-Von joined his (kayfabe) half-brother Bubba Ray Dudley, with whom he formed a Tag Team, that eventually surpassed the Dudley Boyz faction and ultimately became one of the most famous Tag Teams in professional wrestling history.
In 1999, they jumped ship to the World Wrestling Federation and stayed until 2005, after which they joined Total Nonstop Action! (now known as iMPACT Wrestling).
The Dudley Boyz won pretty much all major World Tag Team Championships that are out there including the titles of the World Wrestling Federation, Extreme Championship Wrestling, World Championship Wrestling (on WWF TV during the invasion storyline), the National Wrestling Alliance (in TNA), Total Nonstop Action! and New Japan Pro Wrestling.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY D-VON!
