• AEW’s Jake Hager Takes A Shot At WWE Receiving An Award
WWE was one of the few organizations to receive a top honor in PR News’ CSR and Nonprofit Awards this year.
The Chief Brand Officer of WWE, Stephanie McMahon, acknowledged this achievement of her company on Twitter, and wrote the following:
“So proud of the @WWECommunity team & all their hard work to make @WWE the 2020 Corporation of the Year at this year’s @PRNews CSR & Nonprofit Awards! WWE’s mission is to put smiles on faces & it could not be done without the hard work & passion of this incredible team!”
AEW wrestler Jake Hager, who previously worked for WWE, quoted the tweet and took a shot at WWE being honored during the awards. He thinks that releasing a huge number of employees to make budget cuts wasn’t a good move by the company and they shouldn’t be awarded anything because of it.
He also tagged former US Presidential Candidate, Andrew Yang, in his tweet.
“Lmao. I guess lying about over 37 million in quarterly profits, so you can fire over 300 people, during a worldwide pandemic is a category for an award? 🧐 @AndrewYang”
Yang replied the following to him:
“Time will change under new leadership.👍 🇺🇸 “

• Old School WWF Legend Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Legend “Razor Ramon” Scott Hall celebrates his 62nd birthday today.
After touring the territories (NWA, AWA, …) during the 80s, Scott Hall joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in 1991 as Diamond Dallas Page’s accomplice ‘The Diamond Studd’, but in 1992, he was signed to a World Wrestling Federation contract, where he became ‘Razor Ramon’, a character based on Al Pacino’s role as Tony Montana in the movie “Scarface”.
Hall eventually ended up becoming one of the most famous & influential superstars in professional wrestling history, most famously revolutionizing the business when he co-founded the nWo in 1996, after leaving the WWF in order to return to WCW for some big money.
In 2014, Scott was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame by his close, personal friend, Kevin Nash.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY RAZOR RAMON!
