• Old School Wrestling Veteran Would Have Celebrated His Birthday
Today would have been the 63rd birthday of Old School Wrestling Veteran Jeep Swenson (Real name: Robert Swenson Jr.).
Jeep Swenson used to wrestle for various promotions such as Fritz Von Erich’s World Class Championship Wrestling (WCW) & Global Wrestling Federation (GWF), before a very brief stint in Ted Turner’s World Championship Wrestling (WCW) as The Final Solution aka The Ultimate Solution in 1996.
Most people will remember Swenson as Bane in the 1997 Hollywood movie ‘Batman & Robin’, but some Old School WWF Fans might also remember him from the 1989 movie No Holds Barred, where he played the role of Zeus’ “Battle of the Tough Guys” opponent Lugwrench Perkins.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY & † REST IN PEACE

• Booker T Gives WWE One Week’s Time For Royal Rumble 2020 Announcement
There have been rumors going on regarding Harlem Heat vs. The Revival taking place at Royal Rumble 2020.
During a recent edition of his Hall of Fame podcast, two time WWE Hall of Famer Booker T gave WWE one week’s time to officially book this match, or he’ll stop training for his in-ring return.
Below is what Booker T said:
“I’ve been getting a lot of workouts in man. I’ve been trying to get my body right. I’ve been trying to get my mojo right. I’ve been in the gym, training, working out real hard and sometimes I’ve been doing two-a-days and I’m trying to get myself in shape.
Hey man, the Royal Rumble is gonna be right here in Houston, Texas on the 26th right there in Minute Maid Park and we got people calling me out.
I still got something left in the tank. I just checked it a couple of weeks ago and we got about a quarter tank left, and I think I’m ready to use it, because I think I can get about…on a quarter tank, I can get about 200 miles. You understand what I’m saying?
So I think I can do the Rumble as well as take that challenge as far as The Revival calling me and my brother out. One of The Revival, I think it was Scott Dawson, he went out and did a Spinaroonie just this [past] weekend actually against The [Viking] Raiders.
I think they lost that match too so, if they lost that match, what do they think is gonna happen against Harlem Heat…and it [Dawson’s Spinaroonie] sucked. It sucked first and foremost.
I’m still waiting on my invitation. Look bro, if I would’ve gotten it, I would tell you. I have not gotten my invitation yet, and the thing is, if they don’t tell me in the next week, I ain’t doing it. They’re on the clock. So I’m putting this out there right now.
If they don’t let me know within the next seven days, don’t call, because I’m gonna stop training after that. I’ll stop putting in real hard work. Don’t call me at the last minute and I’m not ready. Don’t call me at the last minute because I need time to…my mind gotta be right going into this thing. I gotta be focused.
I don’t wanna put in all that work for nothing.”
