• Andrade El Idolo Reveals What Triple H Told Him When He Left For AEW
During an interview with Mas Lucha, former NXT Champion Andrade El Idolo revealed that Triple H told him they can stay in touch even after he leaves for AEW.
Andrade also revealed that his wife Charlotte Flair is currently off WWE programming due to personal reasons, which she will address soon.
Below is what Andrade said:
“He gave me an opportunity and helped me a lot in NXT and I spoke to him when I requested my release. We are on good terms and he always mentioned that I can keep in contact with him.
I cannot say that I have contacted him recently, but it is difficult due to legalities. And if he wanted to speak to me, my wife works there, so he can always reach out to me from there too.
It is difficult at the same time because Ashley (Charlotte Flair) has time off due to personal reasons and she will specify them in future interviews. It was very heavy because she worked on Thursdays to work on Weekends while I traveled on Tuesdays and returned on Thursdays as soon as she was scheduled to leave.
Right now we are good because I get to see her more, I hope she comes back soon.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (October 6, 1999) – Old School WWF Legend Passed Away
On this day in 1999, we lost Old School WWF Legend Gorilla Monsoon (Real name: Robert Marella) at the age of 62 due to complications of diabetes.
After his career as an active WWWF/WWF Superstar came to an end during the early 80s, Gorilla Monsoon became an announcer and will always be remembered as one of the 2 greatest play-by-play commentators in professional wrestling history, with the other one being “Good Ol’ J.R.” Jim Ross.
In 1994, Monsoon was inducted into the WWF Hall of Fame (now known as WWE Hall of Fame) by his colleague & friend Jim Ross.
The last time we saw him on TV was during the ‘WWF WrestleMania XV’ PPV, where he received a standing ovation.
