• Old School Wrestling Legend Celebrates His Birthday

Old School WCW Legend Booker T (Real name: Robert Huffman) celebrates his 56th birthday today.

Booker T became famous in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling as one half of the Tag Team Harlem Heat, before winning his first World Title at the ‘Bash at the Beach 2000’ PPV.

When Vince McMahon bought the promotion in March 2001, Booker T was among those WCW Stars who were signed to a World Wrestling Federation contract right away.

As the reigning and defending WCW World Heavyweight Champion at that time, he played a major role in the infamous Invasion angle, that saw the ‘WCW/ECW Alliance’ feud with the WWF Superstars.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY BOOKER T!

• Big E Was Supposed To Be In The Shield

During his WWE 24 special documentary on the WWE Network, current Intercontinental Champion Big E revealed that there were plans for him to be in The Shield in 2012.

Here’s what he said:

“My first feeling of getting called up was 2012. I was doing loops. Any collective period of days is a loop. It’s Roman [Reigns], Seth [Rollins], Dean [Ambrose], and me.

There was some thought of bringing all four of us in together as a group. Obviously, that changes, they go on to international fame as The Shield.

I was told, ‘You’re going to be with Dolph and AJ, on your very first night, you’re going to attack John Cena.’ I’m thinking, ‘Man, this is it.'”
