• Old School WWF Legend Would Have Celebrated His Birthday Today
Today would have been the 71st birthday of Old School WWF Legend Big John Studd (Real name: John Minton).
Big John Studd wrestled for the World Wrestling Federation from 1982 until 1986 and again from 1988 till 1989.
His biggest accomplishment was winning the second annual Royal Rumble match in 1989, which was not only the first ever 30-man Royal Rumble match, but also the first one that aired LIVE on pay-per-view.
He retired from the sport of professional wrestling later that year, in late 1989.

• Becky Lynch Is Now The “Chosen One” In WWE
According to Dave Meltzer of the Wrestling Observer, Charlotte Flair is no longer the “chosen one” in WWE, it’s “The Man” Becky Lynch.

During a recent edition of the Wrestling Observer Radio, Meltzer had the following to say regarding Vince McMahon deciding to book Becky Lynch as the winner of the Women’s Royal Rumble 2019 match:
“How does anyone watch TV and think that Charlotte is the chosen one when it is so obvious that Becky Lynch is the chosen one? He (Vince) changes his mind every week!
If you watch TV it’s so clear…the whole thing, I mean the whole thing is if they would have had Charlotte win the Royal Rumble…if, okay? It wouldn’t make sense. It just wouldn’t make sense as far as the storyline goes.
Vince was insistent, absolutely insistent that Becky Lynch had to win the Royal Rumble even though in that sense they had to do a storyline that then negated it even though she’s gonna get back in later.
But the whole thing was that he was so insistent that the story made no sense because he was so insistent that she had to win. You know what? He was probably right in the sense that it was probably the right thing to do.”
