• Old School WWF Veteran Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WWF Veteran Jimmy Jack Funk (Real name: Ferrin Barr Jr.) celebrates his 60th birthday today.

As “Jesse Barr” he wrestled for several Old School territories, such as Championship Wrestling from Florida, World Class Championship Wrestling, Pacific Northwest Wrestling, World Wrestling Council, … among many others.

In early 1986, Barr joined the World Wrestling Federation as “Jimmy Jack Funk”, the storyline brother of Dory Funk Jr. (then known as “Hoss Funk”) & Terry Funk.

After Terry Funk & Hoss Funk had both left the WWF by the summer of 1986, Jimmy Jack was soon turned into a “Jobber To The Stars”, doing jobs to mid-carders on weekly shows such as WWF Superstars of Wrestling and WWF Wrestling Challenge.

He continued to wrestle for the promotion till June 1987 and then returned to the territories.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY JIMMY JACK FUNK!

As we noted before, WWE Hall of Famer Edge talked to AEW first in order to get a better deal with WWE.

According to Wrestlingnewsco, AEW wanted Edge to be a huge surprise for their All Out pay-per-view last year:

“The rumor within WWE is that AEW wanted to get him in for a surprise appearance at the All Out pay-per-view in Chicago, but Vince McMahon offered more money.”

Speaking of Edge, WWE released the following unseen footage of Edge from Royal Rumble 2020, which includes a different angle of his entrance and his unseen Spear to Dolph Ziggler (as the camera cut to a crowd shot during live PPV stream):
