• Old School WCW Valet Celebrates Her Birthday

Old School WCW Valet Midajah (Real name: Melinda McCullum) celebrates her 49th birthday today.

Midajah joined Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling in late 1999 and first showed up on WCW TV in early 2000 as one of the “nWo Girls”, 4 valets of the infamous nWo 2000 faction.

When the nWo 2000 stable folded, she became the valet of “Big Poppa Pump” Scott Steiner, most famously managing him during his 2000/2001 World Title run.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MIDAJAH!

• Becky Lynch Reveals Who Saved Her From Being Fired From WWE

During a recent interview with ESPN, Women’s Royal Rumble 2019 winner Becky Lynch revealed how late WWE Hall of Famer Dusty Rhodes saved her from being fired from WWE.

Below is what Becky said:

“When I first came over to WWE, so full of hopes and dreams but I mean, also I had to build myself up again from scratch. People had known of me from before from the time I spent on the independent circuit and I didn’t want to come in acting like I was full of bravado because I hadn’t wrestled in seven years. And so it was really a rebuild from scratch.

I really downplayed myself to a fault. Like I acted like I didn’t know anything, whereas I did and then it was a complete mind game. I had messed with my own head so much that I could barely do a lockup anymore.

I would just over complicate everything, overthink everything. And it was just me vs. me, really. And I know I was on the chopping block a lot and I know if it wasn’t for Dusty Rhodes really believing in me and encouraging me and my wild promos that I would do on Wednesday nights, I don’t know that I’d still be here.”
