• Old School WCW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WCW/WWF Veteran Steve Armstrong (Real name: Steven James) celebrates his 55th birthday today.
From 1990 to 1992, Steve Armstrong teamed with Tracy Smothers in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling as The Southern Boys aka The Young Pistols, before Steve joined the World Wrestling Federation as Lance Cassidy, but the character never made it on a PPV card, so he left the promotion in early 1993.
In 1995, he returned to WCW and mostly teamed up with his brother Scott Armstrong, until Steve left the company in March 2000.
His other brothers are Brian Armstrong (“Road Dogg” Jesse James) & the late Brad Armstrong and their father is WWE Hall of Famer “Bullet” Bob Armstrong.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LANCE CASSIDY!
• More Bad News For WWE’s WrestleMania 36 Event
The Center Of Disease Control issued the following announcement regarding coronavirus outbreak:
“Guidance as of 3/15/2020
Large events and mass gatherings can contribute to the spread of COVID-19 in the United States via travelers who attend these events and introduce the virus to new communities. Examples of large events and mass gatherings include conferences, festivals, parades, concerts, sporting events, weddings, and other types of assemblies. These events can be planned not only by organizations and communities but also by individuals.
Therefore, CDC, in accordance with its guidance for large events and mass gatherings, recommends that for the next 8 weeks, organizers (whether groups or individuals) cancel or postpone in-person events that consist of 50 people or more throughout the United States.
Events of any size should only be continued if they can be carried out with adherence to guidelines for protecting vulnerable populations, hand hygiene, and social distancing. When feasible, organizers could modify events to be virtual.
This recommendation does not apply to the day to day operation of organizations such as schools, institutes of higher learning, or businesses. This recommendation is made in an attempt to reduce introduction of the virus into new communities and to slow the spread of infection in communities already affected by the virus. This recommendation is not intended to supersede the advice of local public health officials.”
WrestleVotes noted that WWE simply can’t hold WrestleMania 36 on April 5th after this announcement:
“With the latest CDC recommendations regarding large groups, WWE simply cannot go on as is for WrestleMania. No crowds larger than 50 people for 8 weeks is the recommendation. Also, I would expect all TV events to be from the Performance Center for the foreseeable future.”
