• Old School Wrestling Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 48th birthday of “No Gimmicks Needed” Chris Candido (Real name: Christopher Candito).
Candido was in a lifelong relationship with his high school sweetheart Tammy Sytch and together they joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1995 as “The Body Donnas” with Chris becoming “Skip” and Tammy became “Sunny”, before both were joined by “Zip” (Dr. Tom Prichard with short hair).
In 1996, The Body Donnas won the vacant WWF World Tag Team Championship, but Chris left the promotion before the year was over and jumped ship to Paul Heyman’s Extreme Championship Wrestling, where he wrestled until 1999 and then joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling for a brief run in 2000.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
March 21, 1972 – April 28, 2005
• AEW Makes A Big Change To Next Week’s Dynamite
AEW was scheduled to air the “Blood & Guts” match (War Games) between The Inner Circle and The Elite on next week’s episode of Dynamite, but that’s no longer the case.
AEW has postponed that match and instead of that, a segment where Chris Jericho will confront BROKEN Matt Hardy has been added.
Below is the announcement that AEW made regarding this:
“The following message is from AEW President & CEO Tony Khan
Our goal every week with AEW Dynamite on TNT is to produce great shows for our fans, and I believe we do. We felt especially motivated to serve our audience this past Wednesday night given what the entire world is coping with, and hopefully we gave them a well-deserved escape during these trying times. Everyone at AEW is very proud of what we delivered and humbled by the response and the kind words we’ve received from fans and partners throughout the world.
Thank you! We plan to continue answering that calling with live weekly shows every Wednesday night on TNT, but the time and circumstances aren’t right for the card we had planned next week for Blood and Guts.
That show will happen when the time is right, but what you can count on instead this coming Wednesday night is a great live episode of AEW Dynamite featuring Chris Jericho confronting Matt Hardy, face-to-face, one-on-one, for the first time ever and a tremendous night of wrestling action.
In the meantime, until AEW Dynamite this Wednesday night, please follow us via social media and please be safe and smart so we can get back to seeing you all on the road as soon as possible.
Thank you for making this all possible for everyone here at AEW, it’s a dream come true to be able to do these shows for all of you.”
