• Old School WCW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WCW Veteran Kwee Wee (Real name: Allan Funk) celebrates his 49th birthday today.

Kwee Wee was trained in World Championship Wrestling’s very own wrestling school, the famous WCW Power Plant, and then wrestled for Ted Turner’s promotion until it was sold to Vince McMahon in 2001.

He wrestled the opening match of the last ever WCW pay-per-view, Greed, on March 18, 2001, but was defeated by Jason Jett.

His valet used to be the former Nitro Girl Paisley, whom most wrestling fans know as Sharmell Sullivan, the wife of Old School WCW Legend Booker T.


• AEW President Tony Khan Responds To CM Punk’s Request About The TNT Title Open Challenge

AEW Executive Vice President, Cody Rhodes, became the first ever TNT Champion at Double Or Nothing in May. Since then, Cody has been holding TNT Championship open challenges on Dynamite every week.

As anyone can answer the challenge (including non-AEW wrestlers), Cody asked his fans on Twitter who they’d like to see him face next.

Former WWE Backstage Analyst, CM Punk, replied with the list of people he wants to see answer the open challenge.

– Sign guy

– Domino w/ cherry

– Fearless Jack Bull

– Dean Visk

– New Jack

AEW President, Tony Khan, then joined the conversation and noted what Punk said. He also tried to start a conversation with Punk on Twitter by recalling the time he saw Punk at a show.

“Duly noted. Fun facts: I saw you on a house show in Champaign on Super Bowl Sunday 13.5 years ago with Domino and Cherry (and Deuce). Also, New Jack was really really nice to me when I was a 13 year old kid visiting Philadelphia. My dad loved New Jack.”
