• Another WWE Star To Work NJPW Wrestle Kingdom 17 Next Month
WWE RAW Superstar Karl Anderson is still the Never Openweight Champion.
He was scheduled to drop the Title at an NJPW event in November, but couldn’t, since the event was on the same day as WWE’s Crown Jewel premium live event in Saudi Arabia.
According to PWInsider, WWE and NJPW have come to an agreement to let Anderson wrestle at next month’s Wrestle Kingdom 17 PPV, where he will most likely drop the Title.
As we have noted before, Sasha Banks is also scheduled to work Wrestle Kingdom.
Below is the current match-card for this New Japan Pro Wrestling event:
– IWGP World Heavyweight Championship: Jay White (c) vs. Kazuchika Okada
– IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship: Will Ospreay (c) vs. Kenny Omega
– IWGP Women’s Championship: Kairi Sane (c) vs. Tam Nakano
– IWGP Junior Heavyweight Championship: Taiji Ishimori (c) vs. El Desperado vs. Hiromu Takahashi vs. Master Wato
– Tournament Final to crown the inaugural NJPW World Television Champion: Zack Sabre Jr. vs. Ren Narita

• Old School WWF Manager Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 88th birthday of Old School Wrestling Legend José Lothario (Real name: Guadalupe Robledo).
José Lothario wrestled for several National Wrestling Alliance territories during his professional wrestling career, which eventually made him an NWA Hall of Famer.
He trained Shawn Michaels in the early 80s and by 1996 became Michaels’ manager in the World Wrestling Federation before the legendary WrestleMania 12 Iron Man match, where José led The Heartbreak Kid to win the WWF World Heavyweight Championship.
The last time Lothario was in Shawn’s corner was at the 1997 Royal Rumble PPV, where HBK won the title for a second time.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE
December 12, 1934 – November 6, 2018
