• Backstage AEW Reaction To Kevin Owens Re-Signing With WWE
Kevin Owens won’t be leaving WWE for All Elite Wrestling in 2022, because he has re-signed with Vince McMahon’s promotion.
Owens’ new contract is for 3 years, where he will be making $2-3 million per year.
According to Fightful Select, people in AEW are happy for KO and think he made the right decision for his family:
“Fightful also spoke to several involved with AEW, including a couple that had been open about wanting Owens to make the jump.
Most everyone was happy for him and believed that AEW would be on the table whenever his deal was up, and it was said that he maintains good relationships with many people there.
One AEW source stated that ‘anyone who knows Kevin knows his priorities are with his family first, so you have to be happy for him.'”

• Old School WCW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WCW Veteran Nick Dinsmore celebrates his 46th birthday today.
He wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling promotion in 1998 and 1999, but was mainly used as a ‘Jobber To The Stars’.
Most wrestling fans nowadays will only remember him as the mentally disabled (storyline wise) nephew of RAW General Manager Eric Bischoff, Eugene, which he became later on.
As Eugene, he had a pretty good mid-card run in the WWE between 2004 and 2007.
He also portrayed the famous ‘Doink The Clown’ character on two occasions: first as a participant in the APA Bar Room Brawl at the WWE Vengeance 2003 PPV and then in a match against Chris Benoit on SmackDown a few days later.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY NICK DINSMORE!
