• Old School NWA Manager Celebrates His Birthday
Legendary Old School NWA Manager J.J. Dillon (Real name: James Morrison) celebrates his 78th birthday today.
After a successful pro wrestling career during the 60s, 70s & early 80s, where he wrestled for several territories, J.J. Dillon became the manager of the famous “4 Horsemen” stable, a role most old school wrestling fans still remember him for.
Between 1989 and 1997, Dillon worked an office job for the rival World Wrestling Federation, before he returned to Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling as the on-screen commissioner.
In 2012, he was inducted into the WWE Hall of Fame alongside other Horsemen members.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY J.J. DILLON!
• Backstage News Regarding The Universal Title Picture, Braun Strowman’s Future As The Champion
Braun Strowman defeated WWE Hall of Famer Goldberg in the co-main event of Night 1 of WrestleMania 36 to win the Universal Championship.
However, that wasn’t the original plan, as the plans changed twice (at first, the plan was for Roman Reigns to defeat The Fiend to win the Universal Championship, then it was changed to Roman Reigns defeating Goldberg to win the Universal Championship).
According to Tom Colohue, things aren’t looking good for Strowman future as the Universal Champion on SmackDown:
“As regards to Strowman, he was the right guy at the right time, but he lucked into this Championship. This was never the plan.
Unfortunately for Braun, there is a lot of dissenting voices backstage that aren’t necessarily in his corner. There is a lot of debate almost constantly to whether Strowman is the right guy, but the top-level on SmackDown is it’s so bare at the moment.
What I think we’re going to see, is if the Fiend loses, then the Fiend is probably going back to RAW, whereas if The Fiend wins, Roman Reigns is probably returning soon.
As regards to Strowman, I’m not sure, and I think that’s a bad sign.”
Strowman is currently expected to face “Eater Of Worlds” Bray Wyatt at Extreme Rules.
