• AEW Wrestler Injured On Last Night’s Dynamite
On last night’s episode of AEW Dynamite, Austin Gunn (son of WWE Hall of Famer Billy Gunn) faced Anthony Ogogo and lost.
During the match, Ogogo (who is a boxer-turned-wrestler) struck Gunn several times in the gut and then took him out with a Pop-Up Punch to the face.
After Dynamite went off the air, AEW announced that Austin suffered some injuries during this match and he will be out of action for 8-10 weeks.

This most likely is a kayfabe (storyline) injury, to make Anthony Ogogo look like a threat. Ogogo will face Cody Rhodes at AEW Double Or Nothing 2021 pay-per-view on May 30.

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (May 20, 2011) – Old School WWF Legend Passed Away
On this day in 2011, we lost Old School WWF/WCW Legend “The Macho Man” Randy Savage (Real name: Randall Poffo) at the age of 58.
Randy Savage is widely considered to be one of the greatest of all time in professional wrestling.
Most notably, The Macho Man wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from 1985 to 1994 and for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling from 1994 till 2000.
The last time we ever saw Savage in the ring was in late 2004, when he wrestled for Total Nonstop Action (now known as iMPACT Wrestling) on PPV.
In 2015, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his former tag team partner and friend “The Immortal” Hulk Hogan.
His brother, “Leaping” Lanny Poffo (The Genius), accepted the induction on Randy’s behalf.
† REST IN PEACE MACHO MAN
