• Old School WCW Valet Would Have Celebrated Her Birthday
Today would have been the 56th birthday of Old School WCW Valet Woman (Real name: Nancy Benoit).
During the 80s, Nancy became the valet of Kevin Sullivan’s stable and together they toured the territories and ended up getting married in 1985.
Woman then worked for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling from 1989 to 1990, for NWA Eastern Championship Wrestling (which became Extreme Championship Wrestling in mid-1994) from 1993 until 1996 and then again for WCW from 1996 till 1997.
After leaving professional wrestling in 1997, she was never heard of again up until the tragic incident in June 2007.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
May 17, 1964 – June 22, 2007
• AEW Wrestler Possibly Injured On Last Night’s Dynamite, Double Or Nothing PPV Match In Jeopardy
AEW Women’s Champion Nyla Rose and Britt Baker faced off against Hikaru Shida and Kris Statlander at last night’s Dynamite.
Rose and Baker managed to win the match, but “The Role Model” may have suffered a pretty serious knee injury in the process.
During the match, Shida and Statlander picked up Rose and slammed her on Baker as she laid in the corner. It appeared that Rose landed right on Baker’s knee.

The Wrestling Observer noted that “they think it’s probably bad, but she has to be checked out.” It could be “a pretty serious knee injury.”
This is be a pretty bad timing for Baker to get injured, as she’s set to face Kris Statlander at Double Or Nothing PPV this Saturday night.
