• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (September 9, 2016) – Old School Wrestling Veteran Passed Away

On this day in 2016, we lost Old School Midget Wrestling Veteran Lord Littlebrook (Real name: Eric Tovey) at the age of 87.

Lord Littlebrook was one of the most famous Midget Wrestlers in Professional Wrestling history, working for various major promotions such as the AWA, Georgia Championship Wrestling, Jim Crockett Promotions and the World Wrestling Federation.

Most Old Schoolers still remember him teaming up with Little Tokyo & King Kong Bundy to take on the team of Little Beaver, Haiti Kid & Hillbilly Jim at WrestleMania III.

During the late 80s he also became a manager in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling, managing The Royal Family (Jack Victory & Rip Morgan).

REST IN PEACE LORD LITTLEBROOK

• AEW Issues Statement Regarding Cody Rhodes Participating In A Homophobic Chant At AAA TripleMania XXVII

At last month’s AAA TripleMania XXVII event, Cody Rhodes teamed up with Psycho Clown and Cain Velasquez to defeat the team of Texano Jr., Taurus, and Killer Kross.

After the match, Cody’s team began a “puto” chant towards the losing team (which is a homophobic term to look down upon someone).

You can watch it below:

SB Nation reached out to All Elite Wrestling to get a comment on Cody participating in a homophobic chant and below is the statement that AEW issued:

“Cody joined his teammates at AAA TripleMania for what he understood to be their post-match tradition in Mexico and was unaware of any negative connotations. Certainly the last thing Cody would want to do is to hurt or offend anyone, anywhere.”
