• Old School WCW Veteran Celebrates His Birthday
Old School WCW Veteran Prince Iaukea (Real name: Michael Hayner) celebrates his 55th birthday today.
He was trained by Dean Malenko but it was The Taskmaster Kevin Sullivan who named him “Prince Iaukea” by taking the name from Sullivan’s friend, Old School Wrestling Veteran King Curtis Iaukea.
Prince Iaukea wrestled for Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling from 1996 till 2000 and then went on to wrestle on the independent scene.
During his time in WCW, he won the Cruiserweight Title twice and the TV Title once, but also reinvented himself in 1999, when he became known as “The Artist Formerly Known as Prince Iaukea”, a name based on singer Prince’s name change.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY PRINCE IAUKEA!
• Backstage News On Trish Stratus’ Training For SummerSlam 2019 Match
According to Brad Shepard, WWE Hall of Famer Trish Stratus is training with a Canadian Indy wrestler for her match with Charlotte Flair at SummerSlam 2019 and that Fit Finlay is going to be the agent for this match:
“The not so very well known Canadian-based indie wrestler who has been training with Trish Stratus in the greater Toronto area trained with her on Sunday night.
They’re trained together on Wednesday, July 31st and then on Friday both Charlotte Flair and Finlay are scheduled to stop by to go over their match.
So Finlay I would presume is probably their agent at SummerSlam.”
Brad also noted that Trish is learning to do the Figure 4 Leg Lock, so expect Trish to pull out that move on Charlotte at SummerSlam 2019.
