• Old School WWF Tag Team Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WWF Tag Team Veteran Blake Beverly (Real name: Mike Enos) turns 56 today.
Mike Enos spent most of his professional wrestling career teaming with his close personal friend Wayne Bloom, first as “The Destruction Crew” for Verne Gagne’s American Wrestling Association (88-91), later as “Minnesota Wrecking Crew 2” for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (1990) and then they finally joined the World Wrestling Federation in 1991 as “The Beverly Brothers”.
They were managed by The Genius (Lanny Poffo) for a while, but eventually left the promotion in 1993, then again teamed for a few matches in 1997 & 1998 on World Championship Wrestling TV during their respective singles runs with Ted Turner’s company.

Riddle posted another video (which he later deleted) and said the following about Goldberg:
“Goldberg, Goldberg. You lived up to the hype yet again. You’re absolutely the worst wrestler in the business, bro. And that’s not an opinion, that’s a fact.”
You can watch this deleted video below:
Riddle went on to explain why he’s disrespecting Goldberg by tweeting the following:
I love Pro Wrestling so much and that’s why I get mad at certain people because they’re unsafe, dangerous and a liability to everyone else, I’ve worked hard to get where I am and this is only the beginning!

Bryan Alvarez of the Wrestling Observer addressed this situation and had the following to say:
“Matt Riddle’s just up there burying Goldberg and so in talking to people this weekend and listen, God only knows in pro wrestling, but from talking to people this weekend the indication I have is that this is real and somebody told me that Riddle has actually been saying things about Goldberg for awhile.
Goldberg blocked Riddle [on Twitter] and he was really angry about it and that’s why he went on this weekend-long tirade on Goldberg.
I know people who are furious at Riddle. I can’t even say the words they’re saying, but the weird thing is that things are still being posted. Like if this was real then why are they allowing him to do this? It’s not coming off well.”
