• Andrade El Idolo Reveals Why He’s Off AEW TV
Andrade El Idolo last competed in AEW at the All Out 2022 PPV, where he lost in the Casino Ladder Match.
He has been off AEW TV ever since and many fans have wondered why Tony Khan isn’t using the former NXT Champion.
Andrade took to Twitter today to reveal that he tore his pec (the same injury Cody Rhodes suffered a few months back) and underwent surgery.
Below is what he tweeted:
“My first surgery I can’t believe it happened. A few months ago, I tore my pectoral muscle.
Thanks god! I could and wanted to finish my match. I kept working because I love the business but we know that many people do not value your effort, these days off I took the opportunity to go to Dr.”

• On This Day In Pro Wrestling History (November 29, 1998) – Old School WCW Veteran Passed Away
On this day in 1998, we lost Old School WCW Veteran Loch Ness aka Giant Haystacks (Real name: Martin Ruane) at the age of 51 due to Lymphoma.
As Giant Haystacks he became a legend in europe, where especially his rivalry against fellow UK Wrestling Legend ‘Big Daddy’ stands out.
In early 1996, he joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling as Loch Ness, a member of Kevin Sullivan’s Dungeon of Doom.
Loch Ness was booked for a feud against Hulk Hogan, but that never happened as Ruane was diagnosed with cancer and left the promotion.
Giant Haystacks is ranked #5 on a list of THE single heaviest professional wrestlers of all time, listed as weighing 690 lbs / 313 kg when he was at his heaviest.
† REST IN PEACE LOCH NESS
