So, it might happen, you never know, but right now I’m happy with my DomDom. I’m happy going out there with him and Finn and Damian and I mean, you never know what the future holds. It might happen.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (April 19, 2005) – Old School Wrestling Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 2005, we lost Old School Wrestling Veteran Silo Sam (Real name: John Harris) at the age of 52.
Standing 7ft 5in (billed as 7ft 7in), John Harris ranks #3 on the list of the tallest professional wrestlers ever, which can be seen here.
Known as Silo Sam in Verne Gagne’s AWA (1986), he was known as Big John Harris on CWA Memphis Wrestling TV (1984-1985) and as Little John in Fritz Von Erich’s WCCW.
In 1987, he wrestled on untelevised WWF House Shows, but they didn’t end up hiring him.
Quite a lot of people remember him for chasing Pee-wee Herman because of a girl in the movie “Pee Wee’s Big Adventure”.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
September 12, 1952 – April 19, 2005
