• AEW Wrestler Says He Stopped Watching RAW When WWE Made It A 3 Hour Show
Current AEW Wrestler Anthony Ogogo was recently interviewed by WrestlingInc, where he revealed that he stopped watching RAW when WWE permanently made it a 3 hour show.
Here’s what Ogogo had to say:
“We want a company of stars, we want a company full of dream matches between all of us. So the more we can all get over and the more time we have, the better.
And I think it’s great that Tony Khan has gone for the third hour being a whole separate show instead of a three hour wrestling show.
Because when the other place went to a three hour wrestling show, that’s when I stopped watching really. Or I stopped watching as intently, I don’t watch anymore.
When I was going to make a bridge from Boxing to Wrestling, I was watching all the wrestling everywhere. Because I wanted to become a wrestler so I had to watch it to know what to become. And when they got the three hours, I didn’t watch it as fervently because it’s too long.
Two hours is the perfect time for a wrestling TV show. It’s exciting, it’s action packed and the third one hour show will be even more exciting.
Even more action packed with all the same talent and half the time to fit it in. So it’s good, it’s going to be really good.”
Former Pro Boxer & 2012 Olympic Bronze Medalist Anthony Ogogo joined Tony Khan’s All Elite Wrestling in 2019, but made his AEW Dynamite debut in March 2021.

• Legendary Old School Jobber Celebrates His Birthday
Legendary Old School Jobber Randy Hogan (Real name: Randy Muehl) celebrates his 70th birthday today.
Because of a facial resemblance to WWF Legend Hulk Hogan, he was given the character of “Randy Hogan”, when he first worked for Jim Crockett Promotions in 1988 and did plenty of jobs on weekly NWA TV shows.
Randy left in early 1989, shortly after Ted Turner had bought the company and renamed it World Championship Wrestling.
In 1989, 1990 & 1993, he did televised jobs for the World Wrestling Federation, though without his typical Hulk Hogan mustache and under the name “Scott Colton”.
In 1994, he returned to WCW and again put over several Stars, before retiring from the sport of professional wrestling shortly thereafter.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY RANDY HOGAN!
