• Old School WWF Tag Team Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 57th birthday of Old School WWF Tag Team Wrestler “The Gigolo” Jimmy Del Ray (Real name: David Ferrier).

The highlight of his Professional Wrestling career was certainly teaming with “The Doctor of Desire” Tom Prichard in Smoky Mountain Wrestling (SMW) and the World Wrestling Federation as ‘The Heavenly Bodies’.

After Jimmy Del Ray left the WWF, he wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling under the name ‘Jimmy Graffiti’.

• AEW Being Investigated By Maryland State Athletic Commission For Recent Unsanctioned Match

At the recent AEW Full Gear PPV, an unsanctioned match between Jon Moxley and Kenny Omega took place.

This was a bloody, brutal match with a lot of weapons involved.

According to the Wrestling Observer, AEW is being investigated by Maryland State Athletic Commission for this match, thanks to former WCW Announcer Chris Cruise:

Below is what Dave Meltzer reported:

“Former WCW Announcer Chris Cruise contacted the Maryland State Athletic Commission regarding the Kenny Omega vs. Jon Moxley match at the Full Gear PPV show on 11/9.

He asked about commission rules on blading, and allowing matches to continue if a performer is bleeding either intentionally or unintentionally and if there was a commission doctor at the show.

After repeated requests, he was told that the commission prohibits wrestlers from deliberately lacerating themselves or their opponents, or introducing human or animal blood into the match, none of which happened in that match.

The commission noted that they were at the match and there was a doctor assigned to the show. The commission also stated they were conducting a formal investigation into the match and thus, since the investigation is ongoing, they can’t comment on questions regarding the match.

I’m not sure what the investigation would be on.”
