• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF/WCW Veteran Scott Putski (Real name: James Bednarski) celebrates his 54th birthday today.
He’s the son of WWF Legend & WWF/WWE Hall of Famer “Polish Power” Ivan Putski (Józef Bednarski).
It felt a bit odd when this 260 lbs Heavyweight Wrestler was used in the newly founded WWF Light-Heavyweight Division (basically the counterpart to WCW’s Cruiserweight Division) in 1997.
Scott then joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1998, but already left the promotion a year later in 1999.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SCOTT PUTSKI!
• AEW Wrestler Could Be Out Of Action With A Torn ACL
As we noted earlier, Britt Baker injured her knee badly during a Tag Team match on this week’s Dynamite.
You can watch it below:

The Wrestling Observer noted that “the belief last night was that it was a torn ACL”. She’s still waiting for an MRI.
Bodyslam gave the following update on her:
“I reached out to my sources within AEW today and inquired about Britt Baker’s health status following her injury on Dynamite, and was told that she had her knee heavily wrapped up today and that it hurts pretty bad. I also asked about her status for Double Or Nothing and if she would be able to wrestle, and was told ‘personally I doubt she will be good.. but who knows’.”
If that’s the case, then Baker will miss in-ring action for the rest of the year.
