• Old School WWF Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 62nd birthday of Old School WWF Veteran Bastion Booger (Real name: Mike Shaw).
Before Mike Shaw portrayed the gross but effective character of Bastion Booger in the World Wrestling Federation TV from 1993 to 1994, he had several other gimmicks, including Klondike Mike (territories), Makhan Singh (Calgary Stampede Wrestling), Norman the Lunatic (World Championship Wrestling), Trucker Norm (World Championship Wrestling) & Friar Ferguson (World Wrestling Federation).
Bastion Booger returned one last time during the 15th anniversary special episode of WWE Monday Night RAW in December 2007.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † R.I.P.!
May 9, 1957 – September 11, 2010
• Becky Lynch Takes A Shot At Sasha Banks
During a recent interview with Sports Illustrated, RAW & SmackDown Women’s Champion Becky Lynch had the following to say about “The Boss” Sasha Banks:
“Come fight me, Sasha. At one time, Sasha Banks was the top dog, she was ‘The Boss,’ but Sasha’s fallen from grace. It seems like she can’t hack it. Let’s prove something.
I know we’ve had tremendous matches back in NXT, and it’s been an age since we stepped in the ring together, and I would love to again, but this is a whole different kettle of fish. This ain’t ‘The Lasskicker’ anymore, this is ‘The Man.’ I would love to go toe-to-toe, ‘The Man’ vs. ‘The Boss,’ to prove who is the top dog now.”
