• Old School Wrestling Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday

Today would have been the 74th birthday of Old School Wrestling Veteran Dick Murdoch (Real name: Hoyt Murdoch).

During his long illustrious career, Dick Murdoch wrestled for several different territories such as the World Wrestling Federation, Jim Crockett Promotions, World Championship Wrestling, Florida Championship Wrestling, World Wrestling Council & Mid-South Wrestling.

His last major appearances came in 1995, when he was an entrant into the 30 man Royal Rumble match at the ‘WWF Royal Rumble 1995’ PPV, and lost a Legends match to “Chief” Wahoo McDaniels at the ‘WCW Slamboree 1995’ PPV.

• AEW Was Reportedly Interested In Signing Goldberg & Doing “The Streak” Again

While speaking on Jim Cornette’s Experience, Jim Cornette revealed that AEW President Tony Khan was really interested in signing WWE Hall Of Famer Goldberg to AEW at one point, and re-doing his 173-0 streak.

Below is what he said:

“Goldberg was huge on Tony Khan’s want list. He wanted Goldberg to come out and do the streak over again. I mentioned how much you think he’s gonna charge for a 30-second job match? Probably the same as a main event PPV match.”

This is most likely true, as Khan has always said that he’s a huge fan of the WCW Legend, and he also considers him one of the biggest draws in pro-wrestling history.
